Morning Gap Pre-orders


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone !

 

Have just started out trading and have a query,

 

I have been watching stocks with gap ups in the price pre-market due to earnings & news etc then placing a pre-order before the market opens. For example...

 

Stock A is $5 and has gapped up, place an order at $5.50, market opens up at $6, order filled straight away. close position and a profit taken. This is what i have been testing in demo mode anyway.

 

My question is, will this work in a live account or will the gap up go straight through my order and will not be filled ??

 

Please help its driving me nuts !!

Hi - if you have an order to open which is placed whilst the market is closed, and it's triggered on the open, it will be filled at the best available price (assuming all criteria are met). 

 

For example, say the market is at $5 and you have your stop order placed at 5.50, when the market opens at 6 you will be filled at 6. If you placed a Limit order then you wouldn't be filled, as your order type is basically saying "I do not want to pay more than 5.50 for this stock". 

 

Don't forget on the US pre market you can give us a call to trade those specific stock before the 14.30 GMT main session open, or trade the 'All Session' equities.

 Why does the demo account behave differently to the live account in the above case?

This has been bothering me as well. 

 

LIVE - Wall Street (1Pound) - Spread 3.6 - Contracts 0.5 - Margin - 656 pounds

DEMO - Wall Street (1Pound) - Spread 3.6 - Contracts 2 - Margin - 2622 pounds

 

Is this to force demo traders to see increased profits when the indices moves in their favor - eager to open a LIVE account?

If it moves against them you can easily just "deposit" fake money again.

Hi, sorry but don't get the point, demo can't react exactly as live especially on market open or other times of sudden high vol simply because it's not live, it won't show slippage for example.

The margin example above for demo and live looks correct, 0.5 contracts = £656.  2 contracts (0.5 x 4) = £2622.

ok, I see what you are saying now, after the lower 1 month intro minimum the standard minimums are;

for cfd cash £ min is 2 contracts with a margin of £2,623.

for cfd cash $ min is 0.5 contracts with a margin of £1,036.

for spread bet cash £ min is £0.5/point with a margin of £655.

go for the spread bet.

LIVE & Demo (in above example) is on 1 pound Cash.

Even after the first month with the increased margin, the DEMO account is still 4x the LIVE's required margin.

there are 3 separate charts for Wall street cash CFDs (click on the arrow next to the name) Cash £1 and Cash $2 and Cash $10 (live or demo). Each have a different margin requirement but as in my previous post, the Spread Bet £0.5/point has the lowest.

I know I'm going on about this, but both LIVE & DEMO is on 1 Pound each.

yeah, the cfd cash £1 has a higher margin than the  cfd cash $2 but the spread bet cash £ has the lowest of all.

    • Hey @pravid17 I hope you're well.  In the leveraged trading industry there are brokers who don't hedge client's exposure and brokers (like ourselves) who do hedge client's exposure.  In a perfect world the exposure of short clients would net off the trades of long clients however this is not always the case. Our hedging model allows us to take an exposure in the underlying market for the remaining exposure which doesn't offset - This way we don't need to hedge every trade, worry about profits of our clients and results in lower costs for hedging in the underlying market (commissions, interest etc.). So say 60% of IG customer exposure in the ASX was long and 40% of exposure on the ASX was short. The 40% would net each other off but there's a remaining 20% of customers who need to be hedged to cover their positions. We go into the market and hedge this.  We make our money primarily through our spreads and overnight funding  with other fees making up a small proportion of our revenue. I would like to remind also that IG is regulated by several bodies globally, including top-tier regulators like the UK's FCA, Germany's BaFIN, Australia's ASIC - This should be quite reassuring from a dealing execution and transparency perspective.  I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other question 
    • A survey from Reviews.org, which featured 1000 Americans, found that as many as 1 in 4 US subscribers may quit the service in the next year.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 23 September 2022  There was an interesting breakdown, but the main reason was affordability. Only 18% said they would move to a cheaper competitor. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the numbers. Netflix subscription woes Netflix Inc (All Sessions) could be in for a rough time ahead over the next 12 months if a new survey is anything to go by, which was conducted in the US. Out of the 1,000 adults that took part in this survey undertaken by Reviews.org, around 25% of those that were covered said that they would be cancelling their Netflix subscription within the next 12 months. Now, it says with that 25% of US subscribers to Netflix considering leaving, not to join a competitor, but mostly because of pressures on household bills. This is how it is split: rising cost of subscriptions - 40% inflation - 20% a lack of content - 22% spending more time on the services of others - 18% So you can see, a minority said they were going to other services, such as those provided by Disney Plus or Amazon Prime. The cost of Netflix has risen dramatically this year as its basic plan increased by 11% in January and its other plans by 20% to 25%. Now these were the first price increases for three years, so that itself is relatively new for a lot of subscribers. Netflix share price Let's take a look at the Netflix share price. You can see on the far left hand side of this chart the COVID lows at $290.39. We saw a whacking great increase there of 141% to the top and the record high in Netflix shares back in November 2021. And that was when subscriptions were rising, people were paying more for their services, and it was all humming beautifully. And then all of a sudden people started questioning the numbers of streaming services they were undertaking with some deciding to withdraw from Netflix. All of a sudden the big drops started coming through with profit warnings and sales warnings. We've recently hit a new low of $162.50. Since then there has been a little bit of an increase. We're currently trading at $232.75, but we are down by a margin of 1.75% in today's session, which reflects this news that we could well see a relatively large drop in subscribers for Netflix in the US within the next 12 months.
