Hi ,

 

At the moment we don't have OCO (one-cancels-other) orders on the platform but we are planning to include them in future releases of our trading platform. 


Sorry we don't offer them currently but we should have them available on the platform soon!

Hi 

 

Unfortunately, the OCO facility is still in the pipeline, with no definitive release date.

 

Thanks for re raising this - it's something that we do get a lot of feedback on and believe me, a lot of us here would love to see it introduced.

 

Our development team have worked through a list of requirements for the new platform and I believe this to be part of the second release phase.

 

I've passed this feedback on to our development team and hope that we can give you some more accurate information soon.

 

Thanks again!

 

Simon.

Hi SimonC,

 

Any clues as to when the new platform with OCOs will be released? It's such a handy feature...

 

Also, would it be at all possible to provide some sort of update re the new platform on the home page so that others are aware of it too?

 

Cheers, and thanks!

Hi , thanks for your post!

 

I've double checked again with the developers and I'm afraid they were unable to provide a set release date for OCO orders. It has, however, certainly moving forward since the earlier posts in this thread.

 

As you can imagine, there are many hurdles to jump when releasing a relatively large update and we hope to get it incorporated into the upcoming release on the new web platform for CFD and Share Dealing accounts, but I'm again afraid there isn't a specified roll-out date for this.

 

Do look out for any communications about this, as it'll definitely be heavily publicised so you'll be made aware via messages on the platform and marketing emails etc.

 

Sorry I couldn't be more specific, but as always your feedback is being passed on.

 

Thanks,

 

Rob

Hi Rob,

 

Thanks heaps for the reply. I'll keep a look out for the update announcements re the OCOs.

 

Just on another note, I am used to trading CFDs and only yesterday decided to try my hand at 'real' shares. I placed an order using the share trading platform, just as I would with CFDs on the CFD platform, but then realised that I couldn't simply place a contingent stop loss order as I normally would with CFDs.

 

So how does that work? I'm assuming one would just place an opposing trade at a pre-set price in that case, is that right? If so, can it be adjusted to last longer than only one day? Seems like that's the time limit for a trade to sit there...

 

I apologise for my naivety, but I'm just not familiar with actual share trading.

 

Cheers and thanks again...

Hi ,

 

That's a perfectly valid question and unfortunately is not quite as easy as simply adding the stop level to an open position like you'd be used to on your CFD account.

 

There's actually another community discussion on how this works. I'd recommend taking a look here.

 

To summarise, you'll be able to place a Stop - GTC order as a separate order which will act as a stop loss. In regards to how long this lasts, it'll expire after a 90 day period.

 

Please let me know if you've got any questions regarding the thread linked above, and thanks for your post!

 

Regards,

 

Rob.

    • Thanks for your reply, I find dukas copy is great for forex, but the Wall Street index is proprietary to IG so the equivalent Dukas index is not close enough for my needs sadly. I have a node JS system receiving the feed from IG and am using Python for the rest API, I really need the tick data though, I was hoping some kind soul had recorded it for a few years and wouldn't mind sharing  
    • Hi, I normally download data from this free service. https://www.dukascopy.com/plugins/fxMarketWatch/?historical_data If you are familiar with any coding language you can request data from the IG API. https://labs.ig.com/rest-trading-api-reference/service-detail?id=552 The smaller time frame you can get from there is (minute).
    • hi  fully agree to this senario of today . I had good respect for IG.but not anymore after this. they answered the phone after 30 minutes and I lost nearly ONE hour of Trading . I am definately going to OPEN another account  with another Broker and Split the Business between two. IG makes hell of Money from my account . The Management might wake up when revenue goes down . Loyalty to just One broker is not a good idea, If IG breaks down I can straight away deal with other broker . I am sure they are not going to compensate all the customers for todays breakdown .
