Lowest Price discrepancies between timeframes.



Three different charts, three different lows. 
18 Aug 2021.
UAE time zone.

I based my entry on the H4. My SL was set at 150.910. Lowest price on H4 shows 150.885. Lowest price on H1 shows 150.916. So on one chart I should still be in and on another I'm stopped out. What's all that about?

Hi @TraderGT1

Thank you for the question

When closing a long position you need to sell to close. Therefore your position would be closed basis the bid price. You can switch to the bid price by right clicking on the chart, then selecting price, then bid. If you change to the bid price you will see that your position was closed basis your stop level which you had set at a price of 150.910. The low on that candle is 150.900 which would have triggered your stop accordingly. I have attached a screenshot to illustrate the above. 

Kind regards

Hi @TraderGT1

Thank you for the question

On the 1 hour time frame 150.835 is the low for the next hour. i.e after your stop had already been executed. If you go to the previous candle you will see that the low is 150.900 as you would expect. Hope this clears it up



Below shows the relevant candle as well as the one post trade execution

    • Very strange, when you think that they handle rights issues properly (including on CFD and spread-bet accounts) yet those similarly involve the holder having to make an election whether or not to take up their shares.

    • IG.com made me loose thousands of pounds as it does not pay the Hammerson enhanced scrip dividend. You are the only major share dealing company that does this. If I held shares with Hammerson in a dealing account on IG on 28 October 2021 you will not receive the enhanced scrip dividend. Last time it meant receiving a cash dividend of 0.2p rather than shares valued at 2p, a huge difference of 10 times. IG.com has done a rights issue Corporate Action for Hammerson before, so it is baffling why they are unable to complete this FTSE250 Corporate Action. Pathetic
