Understanding working orders

Guest Jonathan789


Guest Jonathan789

I am new to the site and have never done working orders before...

I have put in a working order to buy Filta Group (FLTA). The order level is for 272p, and the quote is currently for 270p. Please can someone explain why the order isn't go through.

Hi @Jonathan789, you will need to be a bit more specific. When you say quote to buy you should be meaning the buy price in the box and not the mid price on the chart (unless you have reset it). When you say 'doesn't go through' do you mean hasn't triggered or has been rejected, if rejected then there should have been a pop up rejection notice with some kind of explanation.

This chart has a large spread and looking at it with price set to 'Ask' (= buy), seems that price sat on 270 for nearly the whole the day and did not rise to 272.

Thanks for responding, Caseynotes.

If I remember correctly, the buy price for the working order was for 272p, which was the price quoted in the right-hand box of the share dealing ticket.  Then the price quoted in the "Latest" column of the working orders screen (which I presume is the price of the latest purchase made in the market?) came down to 270p, but my order was still not triggered, even for a partial fill... 

Hope this gives some more useful info to come back on.

Hi @Jonathan789, looking again at the 1 hour chart and pulling volume up it appears there was simply no market, as in, no one on the other side to exchange buy/sell contracts with. There looks to have been a sell order go through at 9:30 on the 5 min chart then that was it, absolutely nothing else.

Must admit it's the first time I've seen black volume bars before ('unchanged'?) but the stock is very illiquid, you are very likely to find that the trade is even harder to get out of than to get in.

Thanks again, Caseynotes.

Can you please tell me how to pull volume up on the chart to get the black bars integrated with the red and green? 


Also, why do the black volumes result in no change?

Please also make sure your order when placed wasn't just 'limit day'. All those orders are wiped at the end of the day. If you placed an order on Friday you would need to make sure the trade type was Limit GTC (good till cancel)  

I can't see an FLTA order working right now for any of our clients?

    • While Layer 2 scaling solutions have helped alleviate congestion on blockchains like Ethereum, Layer 3 rollups are emerging as the next frontier for achieving ultimate scalability and cost-effectiveness. Three prominent layer 3 rollup stand out; ZKlink, Immutable X, and dYdX, each having its distinct strengths. .ZKlink stands out as a prominent player in this space, offering unique advantages compared to other Layer 3 protocols. While Immutable X Built on StarkNet focuses primarily on NFT marketplaces and gaming applications. dYdX utilizes StarkNet for rollups, achieving high throughput for trading activities. With each of the above focusing on a particular user in crypto space, ZKlink take it a bit far by prioritizing interoperability, liquidity solutions, and developer customization. ZKlink also the ability to bridge the gap between different blockchain layers and optimize scalability which makes it a significant force in shaping the future of decentralized applications.   The recent Bitget  listing of ZKLink native token further created buzz around the project due to the anticipation of the round one airdrop. Considering the fact that only ZK link utilizes fast financial transactions throughput using the innovative Ts-Evm makes it more unique and position it as the frontrunner in layer 3 rollup race.
    • I've been exploring numerous methods of passive earning over the years aside from spot trading. These methods include staking, futures trading, OTC trading, bot trading, copy trading, and launchpool. I've achieved some successes along the way, and now I'm trying to streamline and focus on just a few passive income opportunities. Actually looked into a project I encountered on X while browsing for opportunities. Branded as UPLAND, I was kinda drawn due to its Gamefi (NFT, metaverse) affiliation on Bitget's launchpool. Let's see what exploring this token fetches me this time 😁🤞🏻 Would love your shared experience(s) using this feature if any and what it's really like?
