Not getting US500 fills after US CPI release yesterday



Hi, has anyone had issues this summer of not getting fills after US data releases / fast markets? This has happened to me a number of times this summer, where traders sitting in my office have got fills taking the same trades at the same times with different brokers. 


Yesterday after the US CPI figure at 13.30 UK time, I made 3 attempts to short US500 via markets orders between 13:30:05 and 13:30:09. The reasons for the non-fills have been "Price no longer valid" and "market not available online". If I'm submitting a market order, not a limit order with a defined price, shouldn't the order be filled when my order in the queue comes up, at a lower price if so? And as for "market not available online"  . . . IG is one of the leading retail liquidity providers . . . are they really closing the market for the product with the highest volumes immediately after one of the most highly anticipated data releases this year?  


I have missed a number of great opportunities this summer because of this and am seriously considering moving brokers now.

    • If you've tried using Ethereum, you know it can get slow and expensive. Think of Starknet as a helper that makes everything faster and cheaper. It does this by taking a bunch of transactions, squishing them into one, and then processing that one. This means more transactions can happen at once without clogging up the system. For people making apps on the blockchain (they call these dApps), Starknet is like a dream come true because it lets their apps handle a lot more users without slowing down. It also gives them the freedom to make their apps work just how they want, making things better for users. When it comes to making money, Starknet charges fees to use its network and lets people 'stake' their coins – that's like putting your money in a savings account that helps the network run, and you get a little reward for that. So, what do you think about Starknet? It's all about helping Ethereum handle more action without any hassle. Could be a big deal for how we use digital money, right?
    • Why is this?    what’s the reason? I’ve had open positions on this stock for over 3 years 
    • Dear @Omegaguy123, Thank you for reaching out to us! Please be aware that the stock is no longer available on leveraged accounts (spread bet and CFD); it is only offered on non-leveraged accounts (share dealing). Currently, it is on 'closings only' on leveraged accounts, which means you can only close existing positions. To close this market, please make sure you are closing from the 'positions' tab and not from the deal ticket. All the best, KoketsoIG
