IG doesn't allow to close BTC short position when price raising !!!

Recommended Posts

I thought IG didn't allow to reopen long positive when price going up is bad enough.

Today they reach a new high!  Now they do not allowing to close short positions when price raising up!

 

Today when the BTC price reached the bottom and jumped back I wanted to close my short position, they just not allowed it !

The error message I got is:

"This order takes you over the maximum size for this market. You can deal in the same direction up to 3 contracts every 240s"

 

I have to count my position and close to make up 3 contracts, closed 0.2, closed 1,5, closed 1.3 then cannot close any more!

I keep trying and just doesn't allow me to close, eventually I clam down from the panic and final find one way to close them -- move the stop loss price as low as possible, which is $200 from market price !

By the time stop loss was triggered, I already lost $2,114.

 

After close all the positions I called IG again and again they said that due to BTC  market is volatile and not liquid.

And again they said that how their system work and they will not make any compensation for it, if I disagree, i can raise a complaint

 

 

They told me there is a rule in their system that only allow customer to close 3 BTC contracts every 4 mins.

 Why don't they let customer know that first?

 

IG probably is the worst Cryptocurrency market maker in the world.

Never heard any other broker do not allowed close positions.

    • As good as Litecoin has been in the first half of 2019 it has been just as bad in the second half of 2019. It has literally given back all the gains. Those traders who trade both 'long' and 'short' will have made money on the move upwards and then also made money by shorting on the move downwards.  It is difficult to anticipate how Litecoin will do over the coming month but I think it is likely to take the lead from its father in Bitcoin. 
    • $200 will be an important and psychological price area. If this is breached then Bitcoin Cash could easily go down to the $140 price area. This would be a big blow to the bulls and also damage confidence in the asset.  Bears will be enjoying the move downwards and should be profiting from the current trend and price action.   
    • So after a break upward yesterday morning was followed by a pullback for the indices with the usual trade dispute back and forward plus an escalation in the Hong Kong protests with a stand off between students and the police plus the US senate getting involved to stir things up. Looking at the Dax and Dow charts there was a 9am break upwards followed by a reversal, some might say that was a stop run but they are usually not much more than 20 points or so, some might say it was an exhaustion bar on the Dax but exhaustion bars are on the end of a run up or run down not 8 days into a flag. Inevitably some will say it's the beginning of end of the world (again) but it looks just like your average pullback to me. Looking at the bottom chart compares 2 different assets with 2 similar looking charts, they should be because one is the Dow index while the other is one of the main Dow constituents, the funny thing is that one of the charts 'the crowd' are perpetually heavy on the short side while in the other they are perpetually heavy on the long side 🤔
