Trying To Trade The "DAX" - Why do i get this message?? ...

Recommended Posts

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.

sounds like you are after a guaranteed stop loss, and you have placed it too close to the current market level.. that is my guess

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!!"

Guest Query

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?

    • How do I switch my account from CFD trading to share trading?
    • That USDJPY turn looks to be confirmed with a break of a potential ending channel in confluence with the Fib 50% and failed retest of the previous Pennant formation.  A solid bearish move on the last two daily candles of the week in line with a late stocks drop is boding well for a sustained medium term bearish phase for this pair.  This may be at odds with other pairs for a few days or so but I expect USD to turn bearish sometime next week, in which case I see this pair dropping hard, which would be in line with the EWT set up of a wave 3 down.  A continued period of stocks weakness would add to the momentum on this pair.
    • Looks like we are getting that relief rallyvon Gold and Silver, which is in line with my A-B-C retrace bearish move road map.  If this continues according to the road map then the current rally is a wave B.  When it concludes there will be a strong wave C down and this is the point to Short if the mood take you.  This is coinciding with both a short term rally on USD (DX) and a late bearish move on stock indices on Friday.  I expect the bearish stocks move to continue for a bit, especially on non US large caps to complete their wave Bs.  We may see a correlation conclusion of these wave Bs between stocks and precious metals.  I also think USD DX will rally a bit further, with GBPUSD in particular putting in a strongish bear move in a 1-2 retrace.  All the main USD pairs except with the Yen are likely to be bearish vs USD.
