Impossible. Pricing is the market the whole world trades on... you just execute otc as a derivative. Unless your trade was posted to the market and there’s algos out there going for themwhich I doubt.

 

If you tell us what market / time / price etc then someone will probs be able to help :)

Hi there manwithbitcoin,

 

After many years of trading, all I can tell you is this. Although it seems as though the market is taking out your stops on purpose, it is all just basic movements which on many occasions seem to be basically just focussed on you.

 

I can guarantee that they are not.

 

The number of times I have had stops set which have been touched, just for the price to move in exactly the opposite way, are impossible to count. I am absolutely certain many others in the community have had periods of time where they felt exactly the same way.

 

The truth is that it is actually just a failure of our imperfect human mind. It is our tendency to dwell on and remember the 'unfair' and the 'failures', which until this point in time has helped us to survive. In trading you want to overcome this ingrained instinct.

 

Just remember, for every screw-up, ther will be 10 other opportunities. Look for them instead.

 

Cheers, Dan

Hi all. I just wanted to reiterate a point to follow on from  - when a stop is filled or a trade executed by IG, everyone else is also getting the same fill (if appropriate and the large size of consolidated client trades requires us to go to market with different orders) and the figure can be traced to the underlying market. 

 

For example, say you are in a Long position and another client is Short. You have you stop further down the market, and there is a sell off which causes your sell order to close to get triggered. Say hypothetically the other client has their take profit limit at the same level (when taking spread into consideration). Say also at these levels there are other buy orders from other clients. All of these would triggered. Your trade would realise it's loss, the short trader would realise his gain, and the clients looking to buy to open would all be filled (when taking spread into account).

 

The market then rebounds and moves up. Although this is frustrating for you it's important to remember 1) everyone was filled at the same prices when taking spread into account irrespective of the trade direct, 2) IG have no ideas what-so-ever on the direction which the market will take when we fill your trade. You have simply given us an instruction via an order, and we have executed it to the best of our ability basis the underlying market price and conditions at the time. There is no subjectivity in it.

 

If you would like a specific overview of the market price at that time, please get in contact via helpdesk@ig.com and someone will be able to provide evidence of this. You can also check out the Deal Execution Summary which is important to understand. Any questions, please add them below.

    • TJX Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Daily Chart, April 17 2024 The TJX Companies Inc., (TJX) Daily Chart TJX Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   FUNCTION: CounterTrend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: ZigZag POSITION:  Minute wave {iv}. DIRECTION: Bottom in wave {iv}. DETAILS: As we seem to be unfolding in Minor wave 5, we have found resistance at TL1 at 100$, and we will not look for long trades before we will found support on 100$.         TJX Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4H Chart, April 17 2024 The TJX Companies Inc., (TJX) 4H Chart TJX Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   FUNCTION: CounterTrend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: ZigZag POSITION: Wave (c) of {iv}. DIRECTION: Bottom in wave (c). DETAILS: I outlined equality of wave {ii} and {iv}, as correction of the same degree will tend towards equality, at 89$. We can clearly we demand at that level, looking to see at least a reaction.     Here's an Elliott Wave perspective on The TJX Companies Inc. (TJX) as of April 17, 2024, detailed through analyses on both the daily and 4-hour charts: * TJX Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart* TJX is currently positioned in a countertrend, corrective phase under a ZigZag structure, specifically in Minute wave {iv}. This indicates a potential bottom forming in wave {iv}. Currently, resistance was encountered at TL1, located at $100. The analysis suggests caution, recommending against initiating long positions until a support is clearly established at or near $100, indicating the completion of wave {iv} and a potential setup for the subsequent upward move in Minor wave 5. * TJX Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – 4hr Chart* On the 4-hour chart, TJX is seen in the final stages of its corrective phase, specifically in wave (c) of {iv}. This detailed view continues with the ZigZag corrective pattern, focusing on the price action towards a potential bottom. The chart notes the price target of $89, where the wave (c) could find equality with wave (ii) — a common scenario in corrections of the same degree. There's a noted demand at this level, suggesting that a reversal or significant reaction could be expected soon.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta   Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!

    • Mainland Chinese stock markets bucked the broader selloff trend in Asian markets on Wednesday. China's CSI 300 index rose 0.5%, while the CSI 2000 small-cap index surged 5.3%. This came after the Chinese securities regulator stated that companies not complying with calls to increase dividend payouts will not face mass delistings, providing relief. In contrast, Japan's Topix index fell 0.9% despite strong March trade data showing rising exports. UK inflation data showed consumer prices rose 3.2% annually in March, higher than expected at 3.1%, renewing debate on when the Bank of England may start cutting rates. Core UK inflation eased to 4.2% from 4.5% in February but was still above the 4.1% forecast. In the US, stocks closed lower for the third straight session on Tuesday. The S&P 500 slid 0.2% and Nasdaq lost 0.1% after Fed Chair Powell warned rates may need to stay higher for longer to tame inflation.
