Leaving IG NON STOP LOSS on shares - Disgusting

Question

It is absolutely disgusting in this day of technology that you can be the only platform that when purchasing shares don't allow you to put. obvious stop loss on limits for sale. THere might be a back entrance method on the PC but not on the mobile apps and even after the advice given. it immediately sells my SHARES. YOU ARE TAKING MY MONEY and it doesn't belong to you at that point.

There is no linked software for portfolio management or taxes (simply wall st, share sight, invest smart etc). The research is lacking, no brokerage reports, no extensive stock across international marke compared to saxon or CMC.

My points.

Transferring my holdings

You need to catch up to the rest of the world.

Hi @Mil-Fit - I'm sorry that the trading app on mobile wasn't performing how you expected. Although I can't discuss account specifics on a public forum, I would suggest you give us a call if you wanted to go over anything unique to your account. 

You are correct in saying that on our share dealing ticket we don't include a 'stop' level as a single field, and that you would have to set up a unique order to deal with the automatic closure of your shares, for example a limit or stop order to sell to close. 

These orders are pushed directly to the underlying exchange themselves and they are only executed if you have specifically requested them to go in at those levels. If your order is likely to be executed immediately you are also warned. When you are dealing 'at quote' you are given a confirmation screen which you need to accept before the order is accepted. 

It's important to make sure order types are known going into a trade and how the IG platform performs. Whilst we do try and communicate this as best possible when you sign up as a client it's also important to note that we're available 24/7 throughout the trading week if required. 

Please feel free to give us a call at any point to discuss further if required, and to talk through the specifics of your account. Best.

    • A (relatively) settled session - APAC brief 12 Dec
      A (relatively) settled session: It’s been a soft day for global equities. With almost exactly two-hours to go in the US session at time of writing, another modest rally has apparently been faded by traders. Indications are that Wall Street will close lower. If proven true, this will punctuate a mixed day for Europe, and quite a solid day for the Asian region. The former found little impetus to be bid higher, while the Asian session showed the ebullience of diminishing trade tensions. Scanning the major indices, volumes were up compared to their 100-day average, however were slightly down when compared to their 10-day and 20-day average. It reveals a market that is more settled than what it has otherwise been seen during the global share-market correction – but remains vigilant and prepared to turn at the sight of bad-news.

      Global growth: Given price action in last night’s trade was relatively more subdued, traders and analysts seemed able to take the clearer air to reflect on current market drivers. The theme that’s popped up consistently in the last 24 hours can be crudely articulated as “downside risks to growth”. It was a theme adopted by ECB President Mario Draghi during his press conference following last night’s ECB Meeting; and it was also referenced by PBOC last night in relation to China’s economic fortunes. It bears repeating: October, November and December in markets have been characterizes by bearishness, of course. However, the causes throughout this period have shifted. What was initially a sell-off catalysed by fears regarding higher US interest rates has transformed into one driven by fears about slower global economic growth.

    • What’s making headlines - APAC brief 13 Dec
      What’s making headlines: There’s an hour and a half to go in the US session and global equities are up. Let’s assume they finish that way – there is plenty of room for clarification (and rationalization) late-on, if need be. Traders have taken the new green shoots in the trade-war and spun them into a positive narrative. Sure, the old green shots lay trampled below the new ones, but perhaps this time around the positivity will be given a chance to thrive. The other story hogging headlines in the financial press is the vote motion UK Prime Minister May’s leadership of the Tories. Market confidence has been shaken by that development, but as we wake-up this morning, the balance of opinion seems to be suggesting that May will win the day.

      The data side-show: Politics is driving markets still, which is always dangerous – it’s often a distortionary influence on prices rather than a revealer of fundamental facts. However, the fundamental economic data that was handed to traders overnight supported their optimism. Arguably the most significant release for the week, US CPI figures delivered a bang-on forecast number. If you’re a bull, locked in an environment where there exists fear of a global economic slowdown on one side, and fears about higher global interest rates on the other, a moderate outcome to any data-release is welcomed. Fundamental data last night was light otherwise, with US crude oil inventories the next most important release. It overshot forecasts, but still showed shrinking supplies, which boosted oil prices and (at the very least) didn’t detract from the bullish sentiment.
