What is the reason behind default 'net off' value?


Konrad

Question

When trading on any platform (CFD) each deal has a default trade execution type set to 'net off'. What is the reason behind choosing this value as the default one?

I'm asking because I just lost some money (again) when opening new position against another already existing position. 

 

Imho most ppl when they see name 'new deal' they expect to open new position - if they already have an opened position on the opposite side of the market, they should know about it and the intention behind new deal is to open a hedge - not to trim an existing position.

Also, hedge is (again Imho) better solution from customer's perspective - it doesn't involve loosing money.

So why IG has decided to go for 'net off' option?

 

Possible solutions:

1. Leave the fiend empty but required - this will prompt a trader to make a conscious decision.

2. Make it configurable.

3. Make 'force ooen' as a default option.

4. Add another option to edit existing position (as ame way as you can edit limit/stoploss) - for situations such as closing only fraction of existing position...

    • With the CryptoSpace evolving everydayy, a plethora of ways also trump up for users to earn and have fun alongside. Some of these events are my favourites. I have participated in a couple of them and the potential to earn therefrom is immense.  Just recently, I came across an event on Bitget for its users to earn passively as well as an opportunity to spin the wheel to win an all expense tour to Santorini island. The criteria for participating in this is relatively simple, you just need to make a net deposit of over 100 USDT and maintain the amount for a day. Depositing greater sums like $500 USDT, 1000 USDT and 1 BTC can further your chances of winning. The more tasks completed, the more spins a participant may have. The event is exclusively restricted to users from the; United Kingdom, Canada, Australia/DACH, French, Italian, Netherlands, Sweden and Poland region. The total prize pool is $50,000 based on FCFS serve basis. This sounds too good to look away from.
    • Still the silence is deafening in here. When will this happen?  it have moved most my Trading Capital to another broker who does support Trading veiw Does the deal with Tastytrade have something to do with this lack of progress?  
    • Well to me I feel that the  crypto market values transparency and reliable services. And Bitget has embraced this approach, attracting a large following,gaining up to 1.4million twitter followers,. Recent data shows significant growth in trading volume, solidifying its position in the market.  The exchanges  focus on user protection and satisfaction has fostered a loyal community. As the platform continues to evolve, its value may continue to grow. What are your thoughts on the importance of value in crypto, and what do you see as Bitget's future potential?
