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,

    • While established players like Binance held steady market share, Bitget has shown impressive growth in Q1 2024. Their derivatives market share jumped from 9% to 12% in just two months, pushing them to the number 3 spot, surpassing OKX. This surge coincides with a significant increase in their user base, reaching 25 million.   The exchanges’ growth isn’t limited to market share. Their spot trading volume also saw explosive increases throughout the quarter, culminating in March’s staggering $95 billion. This impressive performance has seen Bitget overtake several competitors, solidifying their position as a leading exchange for both experienced and new crypto traders.
    • SOL is on the move! Keep your eyes peeled as it approaches key resistance at $148.27. Further ceilings await at $148.98 and $151.86. However, a breakthrough could signal a stronger bullish phase.   Support levels stand firm at $141.17, with even stronger foundations at $133.73 and $128.71. These are critical in case of any selling pressure, offering potential buying opportunities on dips.   Feeling bullish? Traders might consider long entries on pullbacks to major support levels, with stop-loss orders placed below $133.73 to manage risk. If SOL struggles, short positions could be in play with targets set at subsequent support levels.
    • In last couple of years, there has been  debate over the top memecoin investment with centre of discussion around DOGE, SHIB, FLOKI, PEPE and a host of others. Personally, I feel comparing any contender to DOGE feels akin to comparing altcoins to BTC. DOGE, being the pioneer memecoin, boasts an impressive $22 billion market cap, towering over its closest competitor, SHIB, with a $13 billion market cap. Its unique endorsement by Elon Musk further solidifies its position. The fervent backing from its vast online and offline community serves as a blueprint for other memecoins to follow. Thus, it's no surprise that DOGE emerged victorious in a recent Bitget poll, where enthusiasts competed to showcase their community's strength in honor of DOGE DAY 2024. With DOGE predictably clinching the win, ten fortunate participants stand to each receive $300 worth of DOGE through the event's gleam completion. Let's seize this opportunity to bolster our crypto portfolios.
