Spread Bet Orders Not Being Filled




I'm new so please forgive what might be a basic question.

I created a buy order last night (7 March 2024) for Senior PLC (SNR) with an end date & time of 17:00 today (8th of March 2024). The price level is set to £163.27. Last night before close the price was £166.18. Between 08:00 & 08:15 this morning, the price opened at £159.80, & had a low of £157.80. Last night the Buy/Sell spread was a little over £1 & it is around the same now. Given that the low between 08:00 & 08:15 this morning was way lower than the price level of my buy order (the difference is £5.47) & about 4-5 times bigger than the spread last night & the spread now (about £1, why didn't the order get filled? Did the spread increase massively during that 15 minutes, or am I misunderstanding something?

Just had another one. I've got a Buy order on Chemring at £342.51. This morning it reached a low of £333.65 but the order was not filled. Given the current spread, it seems like it should have been.

OK. I think I've just answered the question for myself. I have an order on Firstgroup, & I can see a biggish movement in price & it looks like the spread has widened considerably:


So, yes. Big sudden movements have an immediate, significant effect on the spread.

Hey, I hope you are well. From the questions and screenshots, I understand you're talking about a buy order and you're trying to deduce the price/spread from the bid chart. I hope you know that you could simply click on Bid (near 15 Mins) and choose Ask there - the chart will change to showing candles based on the ask price and you would no longer need to deduce, you would see the ask prices directly. I hope this helps.

    • I have not been a fan of either of exchanges and wallets native tokens but would wanna explore it now. I took interest from the current hype around BNB, OKB and BGB. These tokens particularly BNB and BGB has shown strength which is obviously due to increase in demand to take part in the most of the launchpool. BNB rose almost 80% in the past 1 year, BGB was on the spotlight with about 190% in a year. OKB may not be left out due to it's potential but has made any significant movement recently. Wallet tokens on the hand have also been doing well but may not be compared to Centralized exchanges imho; I have also monitored few wallet particularly trust wallet and C98 wallet. My best guess is we could be seeing the wallet tokens making impressive price action as we approach post halving due to increase in transactions and I wonder if any one here is considering the prospect BWB token for Bitget wallet. Launching pretty soon and airdrop participation in play. I would appreciate your speculative opinion on it potentials.
    • In the realm of cryptocurrency exchanges, playing by the rules isn’t just a suggestion—it’s a must for staying in the game. Most major centralized exchanges (CEXs) strive to adhere to these regulations, implementing measures to prevent money laundering and illicit activities. However, a recent controversy has emerged with BingX, a top CEX, defying US sanctions by allowing Iranian users full access to its platform. BingX facilitates Iranian Rial trading, directly violating US sanctions. They allow Iranian users to trade cryptocurrencies without KYC verification. This, along with offering peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions using Iranian fiat currency, further raises red flags. This incident is reminiscent of the past troubles faced by giants like Binance, who were caught facilitating transactions for sanctioned individuals, resulting in a $4.5 billion plea deal with US authorities in 2023. The question remains: will this defiance by BingX lead to its downfall? Regulatory bodies in the US, like the SEC or DOJ, might take action.However, the severity of the situation raises questions about the long-term viability of the exchange and whether it may face the prospect of closure or severe penalties for its actions. As governments grapple with the complexities of digital assets, CEXs that prioritize expansion over compliance will likely face increasing scrutiny and potential consequences.
