Why am i getting this message

The order level you have requested is too close to the current market level.

The minimum distance for this market is 300 per point.

Hi   Presumably you are trying to put in a stop loss order or trying to move an existing stop loss order. The minimum distance changes with volatility throughout the day and so far this morning the Dax minimum stop has swung between 10, 15 and 30 points on the new platform. If you are using the MT4 platform you are dealing in lots rather than pounds per point so £1 per point on the IG platform  becomes 0.1 lots and 10,15, 30 points becomes 100, 150, and 300, so 300 equates 30 points on MT4. On both platforms you can use the minimum level then tighten it often just a few minutes later and you are still able to close the trade manually at any point no matter where the stop.

I was just trying to put the same trade on - exactly as i do most days of the week

This particular day it said i couldnt trade as the "buy or sell price"

(I cannot remember whether i was buying or selling this particular day)

Whichevever i was trying to do - It was too near that level in the market already

and that it had to be a mimimum of 300 points away

"Which Is Not True!!"

I get an error message "ORDER LEVEL TO CLOSE TO MARKET LEVEL" when trying to place limit orders.  I can understand for STOP orders but this makes no sense for limit orders.  Does anyone have more info on this order placement restriction?

    • Why isn't there a way to set options stop loss on IG platform?  Are you planning to implement this feature?
    • Hi,  I started trading Brent Crude Oil in IG platform but I could find a formula to correctly calculate the size I have to put while creating a position, based on the available amount I have. The quotation is based in points and it makes me wonder how operate. Any help is welcome.  Also, I plan to work with some leverage in the future, so any tip on this matter is also welcome.  Thanks.
