FX trading ( EUR/USD)



Guys not sure if this has happened to anyone, despite moving my stop loss to my entry point, I still lost substantial money which has never happened to me before, what should have happened if I am taken off the trade without any loss - could this be a problem with the IG server?

Hi @Niiade73

Thanks for reaching out, 

When using stops you are not guaranteed to be closed out at your specified stop level unless you are using a guaranteed stop. This is important to note as when there is an aggressive pull back from the market slippage may occur. You can learn more about slippage and guaranteed stops from the following link:


All the best,

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
