Arbitrary increase in Guaranteed Stops minimum requirements

Question

A few times a day I will come across this issue where under the "Stop guaranteed" section, it will say:

pts away min: 195

 

 

 
Normally the guaranteed stop loss requirement is around 6-10 pts away for the major FX pairs.
 
After about 15-30 minutes it randomly decides to fix itself and the minimum drops back down from 190 pts to around 6-8 pts as per normal.
 
 
Any ideas how to fix this, or if it's something I'm doing that is causing this issue?

This will be down to periods of potential significant volatility, for example before macro economic data releases, election results, company news and events etc... After the event the stops will return to normal.

    • A demo account should work the same as live, otherwise it is misleading.
    • Hey,  The demo leveraged account will work in the same way however there are some issues on the demo account because we test on there to make sure the live account runs as smoothly as possible.  Unfortunately, as mentioned before, we don't offer demo for portfolios but you can find the performance information here. Say you wanted to see the data back from 31st July 2014, you can go back and see the performance since that time: https://www.ig.com/uk/investments/smart-portfolios/performance Thanks for your post. I will get this looked into so going forward this does not happen.   
    • @Trevbeats, Yes I do trade but I am an investor first and then a trader. I trade from the U.K.
