Scaling out limit orders

Recommended Posts

Any chance of developing scaling out limit orders? City Index offer this service and its very useful. With IG you can scale out but I have to do it manually rather than via an automatic order.

Hi , I'm a bit confused what you mean by 'scaling out'? 

 

Are you referring to orders that cancel one another if one it triggered? This is known as OCO or 'one-cancels-other' and isn't something that we currently offer. However we've had clients feed this back to us before and it is in the pipeline to be built, I don't have an ETA at the moment for you but we'll let you know when you'll be able to place them!

 

Edit: Apologies , just realised what you were referring to with 'scaling out'. We don't offer this at the moment, nor is it on our current roadmap. I'll pass your feedback onto the IG development team however, as it may something for future consideration.

 

Thanks,
Luke

I also would vote for scaling out option, but also OCO option. Any news on when the OCO option will be introduced?

 

Thanks

Hi all,

 

Hopefully you'll be pleased to hear that we're currently working on a new web trading platform feature which allows working orders to net off with existing orders rather than force open, which would essentially perform the OCO functionality.  This is something we hope to implement in the coming months, so watch this space.

 

Please keep the feedback coming regarding other features you would like to see introduced!

 

Thanks,

 

Hannah

This would make the IG platform the best in the market. All the other Spreadbet companies already offer this in one form or another.

    • Well Bitcoin broke $8k and is currently around the $7.5k price area. It is not looking good at all.  It seems my $6.3k - $6.6k price area which I think could be the bottom or this specific downward move looks more likely now. I mentioned this price area on Monday (a few posts above) and now I think unless there is some serious buying or spectacular news followed by some serious pumping and short covering then Bitcoin is heading towards this price zone. 
    • There are many different ways to trade and applying or adopting trend following principles is merely just one such way. Trading more frequently does not guarantee any more success but it can increase the chances of making more losses if you do not have a robust trading system that is based on a sound trading plan. Trend following does not have to involve regular or frequent trading. That is the beauty of it. You can merely wait until you identify a trend which you wish to trade. Of course they will not all be successful as the trend could reverse sharply against you, it could be a false trend (looks like a trend but not) or simply the volatility could stop you out.  Day trading really is for full time traders in my personal opinion unless you have an expensive automated system which has been tested rigorously or you are an exceptional trader which can consistently make profits on most days without gambling, hoping or relying on luck.  Trend following suits me based on the time I have available to trade. I accept it is not for everyone but I believe all trading includes an element of trend following. Just how much depends on your trading style and methodologies adopted. 
    • The 20, 50 and 100 DMA curves on the 'daily' timeframe are sloping upwards which is extremely bullish and this trend has been very nice indeed.  When I talk about 'Strongest Trending Assets' in my other threads then I am suggesting those that a lot of traders do not spot but they exist and are available not only to trade on IG's platform but one must be able to spot and identify them.
