Hi Ravikumar,

It is likely that you have a Limited Risk account :

"A limited risk account ensures that you will not lose more than the initial deposit required to open your trades by requiring you to attach a guaranteed stop to all your positions. Guaranteed stops provide you with protection against slippage, but you may still be exposed to currency risk if you trade in a currency other than your base currency. You will not be able to use other types of stops, like trailing stops".

Once you gain some experience on the platform you will be able to change to a  standard account that does not require any guaranteed stops to be attached to your orders.

Please reach out to helpdesk.uk@ig.com or use our live chat feature on the IG website for further information.

All the best - Arvin

    • Generally it is my policy (for the reasons you state) not to hold trading positions over the week-end. Especially holiday (extended) weekends. Some would say even over-night! If you're taking a long term view on markets then I'd question whether Spread Betting is the correct vehicle.at all. Better off with an appropriate ETF/Fund IMHO. You may have a guaranteed stop in place but if not you will be subject to slippage (look it up). The trade will be executed at the best price when the market opens. If what you say happens, then that could well be below 1511. Sorry but a lesson that could have been avoided IMHO.
    • Haha, they were correct initially and were actually 'following the science' before they were subverted and started 'following the politics' instead, see your Chief Medical Officer and Chief Scientific Advisor in the video below. This whole farce has been a never ending story of flip flops and moving goal posts not because of incompetence as most think but by following a covert plan, as per (nearly) every western country in succession. Thank God for Sweden, no lock downs, no shutting down of their health service, no masks, social distancing or vax mandates and came through with normal all-cause deaths for 2020.     More and more people are waking up every day.     
    • Wow, anonymous random person on the internet who has done his "own research" knows better than the medical and scientific community including the Chief Medical Officer and Chief Scientific Advisor.
