Share Trading platform - order input issues

Question

Hey there,

Any chance of setting up the share Trading platforms so we don't have to re-input orders every day.

The CFD platform has done this since I joined. I'm sure others have asked on numerous occasions.

I'm also getting grief from the new traders I've introduced to the platform that this is a big issue for them.

Thanks in advance 

H

To summarise from Investopedia: "Several exchanges, including the NYSE and NASDAQ no longer accept GTC orders, including stop orders. They have decided that such orders are a risk to investors who may see their orders executed an inopportune time due to temporary volatility in the market." 

We offer a pure DMA (direct market access) functionality where we don't come between your input order and the underlying exchange. Because the exchange themselves don't offer the order type, we don't either. Whilst some brokers do offer a sort of hybrid DMA where they take your order and automatically push a synthetic GTC order type (but automatically submitting your order as a new order every day), this isn't currently a function we provide. 

I appreciate that some clients do want this functionality, so I'm going to go and speak to our Head of Shares directly to relay feedback items such as this (as well as things like DRIP functionality etc). 

@h7 - this was the post. Apologies I didn't finalise the reply!

You should be able to set GTC (Good til cancel) orders for the majority of shares on the share dealing platform. These are different from 'day' orders which will be removed at the end of the day. Hope this helps. 

What are you trying to trade on?

Hey there,

I don't have any GTC on the share platform. Yes I do Have GTC in the CFD platform.

The only choices I get in the Share platform is  - Limit Day 

                                                                                     - excecute & eliminate

                                                                                    - Fill or Kill

There is no GTC (Good till cancel)

Hi there,

So far every stock has the same issue in the Share platform.

Which names am I talking about is your question............

These are just a few... There are many more.

..every stock I have tried to input into the Share Platform has no GTC available.

Australian stocks.

Telstra - No GTC available 

ANZ - No GTC available

NASDAQ

Netflicks (NFLX)- No GTC available

Eagle Bulk shipping (EGLE) - No GTC available

NYSE

Bank of America (BAC) - No GTC available

Genco Shipping & Trading (GNK)   - No GTC available

 

Is it me?  Am I logged into the wrong share platform ?

Can you tell me which stock has GTC. Just give me one name in the Share platform so I can test my system.

 

Regards 

H

I don’t think this has been changed. I can only trade with day orders in any Australian stocks, never GTC.  That really means that if I put a buy in for 4000 stocks an hour before the market closes and I only buy 1 because of a stock price rise, the remainder is purged at the end of day with a brokerage cost of AU$8 for the purchase of only 1 share.

Surely I am missing something here!

    • yes, with Renko you are changing from time based charts to price based and so remove a lot of noise and smooth out  the price action hopefully giving a clearer picture.
    • The twitter bears are taking a lot of flak at the mo and with good cause, especially the likes of Edgeye and Zerohedge who called a recession in 2015 and were wrong so they just repeat the call every year since in the expectation of being right eventually. Amusingly enough many traders have build this psychology into their trading plan, imagine anyone trying to continually short a bull market for 5 straight years, and yet as I've pointed out for years using the sentiment data of IG clients short/long positions that's exactly what many have been trying to do. Here's the thing, you don't need to guess, a chart will tell you if it's bearish. As Chris in the podcast above says, a market making new all time highs just can't be anymore BULLISH, there is only one way to go. So if the chart lines up with the macro and both are clearly bullish 'buy high and sell higher'. Do yourself a favour and spend the 50 minutes to listen to the podcast, you will learn something.  
    • Final hours of trading put in some bearish candles that may be a precursor to a period of bearish retrace if the 1H channel is broken on Monday.  If it does I will be expecting an A-B-C form retrace that may retest several support levels before a resumption of the long term Bull.  This is an opportunity to buy in lower, but patient is needed, it may take some time to evolve.  I have a cheeky Short in place...
