Hi everyone.

 

It it is my first time here. Spare with me if I have posted on the wrong board.

 

I have opened PFG short position a while a few days ago with normal stop at 611p but today when sp changed on the way up. The system closed the position well above my stop, at 760p and beyond margin call. This has left with big minus (debt) on my CFD account.

1) Normal stop does not work alway?

2) Normally, How long IG gives its customer to clear the debt?

 

Thank you for your input in advance.

Hi - I have had a look at Provident Financial, and although I can't explicitly discuss your trade (as this is an open forum), I can see that the stock jumped 20% overnight and as you were short this was obviously a market movement against your open position. 

 

A stop order is an instruction to send your order to market to get the best possible fill, and therefore the level you select can't be guaranteed. You can read more about stop orders here: https://www.ig.com/uk/glossary-trading-terms/stop-order-definition

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
