Clarification needed please

Question

Query from a newbie!

I Opened a position on ARM Holdings on 19/02/24 at 16:45 and straight away I was showing a £113 loss. But there seemed to be no candles being generated and the loss figure didn't alter.

I eventually Closed the position at 19:42 and the loss figure hadn't changed.

I then noticed that the full title of the position was showing as "ARM Holdings PLC - ADR MAR-24".

Am I correct in now realising that the positioned I Opened was not like the FX markets in that they are trading most of the time, but would be sorted out on 1st March 24?

Thanks.

Hi @JG46,

It seems that you may have opened a position on a Forward contract instead of a Cash contract. Forward contracts have set expiries and prices derived from future contracts, resulting in wider spreads due to charges and interests. This may have caused your position to be in a loss initially unless there is a price movement.

All the best,

    • The #meme hype surrounding #Solana may have slowed down with the emergence of the Ton network, but it seems that the enthusiasm for Solana is not fading away entirely. While new networks like Ton are gaining attention, Solana has previously generated significant interest and wealth for investors. However, there are concerns about scammers exploiting the Solana network with various honeypot and rugpull schemes, leading some traders to explore other chains like Base and Ton. Despite the rise of Ton blockchain, a new Solana meme project associated with Pepe the Frog has started to gain traction. One such project, LandWolf, has already amassed over 5,000 active Telegram members and 5,000 Twitter followers, indicating early interest and community engagement. The project aims to unite Pepe fans with the broader crypto community, offering a unique value proposition. LandWolf's ability to secure listings on top-tier exchanges like Bitget showcases the developer's influence and the project's potential. Some enthusiasts have already dubbed $WOLF as the biggest meme coin on Solana, highlighting the ongoing interest and excitement within the Solana ecosystem.
    • Meme coins are cryptocurrencies inspired by internet jokes, like Dogecoin. They're inherently risky due to their extreme price swings. While some meme coins remain purely for fun, others are trying to develop actual uses in gaming or finance. These high-risk, high-reward investments often attract "degenerates" (or "degens") who chase quick profits by jumping into unproven projects without much research.   The potential for massive returns with meme coins can't be ignored, however. Dogecoin's 9800% surge in 2021 exemplifies this. A $100 investment could have turned into a life-changing $9800. This experience highlights the potential regret of focusing solely on "safe" investments with lower potential returns.   Taking inspiration from this, some experienced investors are now allocating a small portion of their portfolio to latest meme coins.one of the latest is Miggles listed on Bitget. This strategy allows them to potentially benefit from future bull runs while limiting their overall risk.
