Share Trading platform - order input issues


h7

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!

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!

    • I am a beginner, and I must say, there are a lot of rules to the trading game that one must abide by if they want to be successful.   Here, the writer mentions several basic rules for day vs swing trading.  However, I find that often times, the reasoning for these rules is not as  obvious for a beginner as it may be for an expert.   The 'why' factor if I may. For example, why must you have a large capital to trade with as a day trader? Because your positions must be large so that a small change in price will be augmented and turned into a large profit. Also, with such high risk, the margin will be specially high, given the trader is taking up large positions at a time.  Without a large amount of capital, positions may be forced to close due to funds being below margin requirements.  When this happens, you can expect to lose tons of cash, fast.  I learned the hard way. All the best, David Franco      
    • USDJPY has been regaining ground this week, but inflation differentials and a three-month trend signal the potential for another turn lower Source: Bloomberg      Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 27 January 2023  USDJPY set for third monthly decline The USDJPY pair has been on the slide since its October high, with the historical 147.63 resistance level ultimately marking the end of the dramatic 21-month rally that saw the pair gain almost 50%. Much of that came through a period that saw US inflation soar as Japanese prices remain subdued. That disparity remains, but the direction of travel has certainly shifted as US CPI declines and Japanese price growth gradually ticks up. The overnight 4.3% figure for Tokyo core CPI represents a four-decade high, with the nationwide figures likely to follow on. The chart below highlights how USDJPY has been heavily correlated with the now tightening gap between US and Japanese inflation. However, it is more evident when shifting that inflation differential forward by seven-months. That close correlation highlights the potential for further downside as long as prices continue to trend in a similar manner. Source: ProRealTime Looking at the daily chart, the recent rebound has taken price up towards the top-end of a descending channel and Fibonacci resistance. This highlights the bearish pattern that has been playing out, with lower highs and lower lows in place in recent months. Unless we see price rise through trendline and 134.77 resistance, another turn lower looks likely for this pair. Source: ProRealTime
