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!

    • Hi @stephenC Thanks for reaching out,  We only offer this stock on share dealing due to high broker margin.  All the best,  Anda
    • Friday’s fiscal plan unveiled by the UK government has scared off investors and as a result the pound is down heavily across the board. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor explains that while sterling is off today’s lows, it has suffered breaks of support taking the pound down to levels not seen in decades against a basket of currencies.          
    • GBP/USD in 37-year lows, EUR/GBP 2-year highs and EUR/USD fresh 20-year lows GBP/USD slid to its 1985 low and EUR/GBP rallied to a 2-year high following the UK’s fiscal stimulus mini budget while EUR/USD slid to fresh 20-year lows amid Italian far right election outcome.    Axel Rudolph | Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Monday 26 September 2022  EUR/USD drops to new 20-year lows as US dollar scales fresh 2-decade high This year’s slide in EUR/USD has taken it to levels last seen in June 2002 amid the Federal Reserve's (Fed) aggressive monetary tightening policy with market participants expecting another 125-basis point (bp) rate hike over the next couple of meetings, following three consecutive monthly 75bp rate rises which drove the US dollar to two-decade highs. With Italy’s first far right party since Benito Mussolini’s National Fascist Party in the 1920’s on course to win Sunday’s election, the euro is further under pressure. EUR/USD slid by around 4% since last week to fresh 20-year lows, slightly below key support seen between the June 2000 and January 2001 highs and the September 2002 low at $0.9698 to $0.9593 by dropping close to the $0.955 mark. Below it beckons the September 2001 high at $0.9331. Minor resistance can be spotted at the June 2000 high at $0.9698 above which lurks more substantial resistance around the 6 September trough at $0.9865. See an FX opportunity?
