Adding stops and limits to share dealing accounts


Guest Dave

Recommended Posts

Hi

A newbie here on IG wanting to know why I'm unable to put a stock market stop GTC on a particular share and a limit GTC on a profit amount?

Both are sell issues but I'm not able to implement the limit order sell as it states I have already a sell order (stop) in place.

 

Seems ridiculous I'm unable to put 2 sell orders in place to protect my account and also to protect my profit as there is no trailing stop offered by IG and I do not want to be stuck to my phone every hour of the day to either stop myself out of a trade or take profits.

 

Any help with this clarification would be appreciated.

  • JamesIG changed the title to Adding stops and limits to share dealing accounts

Checked this today in my own account and it doesn't work.  The old-style chart doesn't work this way.

I thought I'd try and recreate your problem using the orders in the normal way and it is as you say.  The message given after setting a stop when trying to do a limit is that I was trying to sell more shares than I own - implying the shares are sort of locked as soon as there is an order in existence pertaining to them.

This doesn't bother me because I don't use these on my share holdings.  If it's a concern to you I'd recommend contacting IG in the appropriate "wish-list" type thread, and asking for some sort of "one cancels other" enhancement to the orders system.  Unless @JamesIG or another expert knows of one I've not found...?

I agree Trading without placing Limit Stops is ridiculous AND EXTREMELY DANGEROUS IG PLEASE TAKE NOTE

This is discouraged or prevented in Spread Betting shares.

The only reason I can see is IG are protecting there own interest ahead of the Client, they could be left holding your unwanted shares !!

    • The epidemic in recent years has produced profound changes in people's lifestyles, and many of their activities have started to be developed in the virtual world, which plays an important role in promoting the development of the universe of meta. Games, as an important part of the universe of meta, will be the first industry to gain the benefits , but the following conditions are still indispensable for blockchain games to achieve better development.   - Wallets and Exchanges. Through the use of wallets, game users can truly take control of the assets in the game, and exchanges provide a trading platform and liquidity for these game assets NFT, helping users trade and revitalize their game assets. Wallets are a key application for depositing blockchain assets. Currently, wallets such as Metamask are not enough to support the extensive adoption of block games, and wallets will further advance community drive the popularity of blockchain games.  - Game playability. The biggest difference between blockchain games and traditional games is that gamers are also investors. Many blockchain games have gone out of course, treating all users as investors only and forgetting that the essence of making games is to develop high-quality games that users are interested in paying for. If most people play a game just to make money, and no one is ready to pay for it, it becomes a side-scam. The revenue of the participants of the side scam comes from the money of the people who come later, and if there are not enough people who come later, they will not be able to cash in the revenue, leading to the breakdown.  - Speed and performance. A high level of concurrency is the characteristic of game applications, so Wax, Coinan Chain and Polygon, which are public chains with a high level of concurrency and low fees, have attracted a large number of game developers. In the future, with the maturity of technologies such as Ethernet Layer 2 and slice scaling, as well as the maturity of other gaming public chain technologies compatible with EVM, blockchain games will have a better development and operation environment.  - Cross-chain and interaction. Cross-chain and interaction of game assets will be a direction of future development of metaverse games, and blockchain should be connected and accessible like the Internet. The maturity of cross-chain technology in the future will promote the cross-chain transfer of game assets and NFT, and improve the interaction experience of the system                                                                                     The game should maintain the operation of the project by relying on the payment of some users or selling profitable products, just like the new blockchain game Fairy Cat in 2023, which developed diverse gameplay for players and increased the playability of the game, thus got the recognition of many players. Blockchain games need to work hard on game experience and playability. Token economics is essentially just a kind of interest structure , and even good token economics cannot replace the development, operation and profitability of the project itself. It is believed that with the maturity of the above conditions, more and more game developers and investors will enter this industry and together promote the production of some blockchain games with beautiful graphics, first-class experience and high playability.
    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
