Looks more like a live platform bug, on the MT4 (using the same feed) price never rose above 26550. Hopefully @JamesIG can flag that up.

Hey - I've asked @WillA to have a look at this. If there were any inaccuracies or false prints we will of course look to resolve. We do not spike markets or stop hunt, however in some instances there can be printing errors on charts. I will update.

Will is removing the inaccurate prints as we speak. 

Apologies about this, but with over 10,000 markets over many many timeframes and contract types these things can happen. Any issues please just let me know.

Hi. As laid out above the chart print error is purely cosmetic. No orders / limits / stops or other would have been triggered on the above chart print (I have also confirmed with our dealing desk in this instance). Our market maker technologies team responsible for this specific issue have suspended other activities until they have resolved this, and our charting technical support team are looking to rectify the charts to bring them back in line with pricing at that time. 

Please remember charts are indicative.

Hi @Tudor2, the spike was clearly a data glitch on the charts which though rare do happen, it was a charting data glitch which did not affect any actual live positions in any way.

@Tudor2 I've edited the price at this time and this should be reflected on DFB chart within 24 hours.

Unfortunately there were issues during this period with the figures being put on the chart in that most were incorrect hence the odd pricing you see.

As others mentioned you would not have been executed on these prices.

There is work ongoing to correct all of it as we do have the correct prices however they didn't get posted to the chart for technical reasons.

Cheers,

Will

    • Trading is a frustrating enterprise @MYK1, as many people point out, losses are part of it.  If you have good stop placement and you get taken out then this ought to have been a loss you were willing to bear (i.e. doesn't kill your account).  It also means you can start fresh.  In the case of GBPUSD the red line is around 12430.  Below that a new set up must be sought (either a new wave 1 bottom or the beginning of a big drop (which ought to be mirrored in other pairs like EUR and AUD with a big rally in USD).  Note, in my book it is perfectly feasible for GBP to put in a new wave 1 (and/or double bottom) and then rally but I would not hold a Long below the red line; I would wait for a new set of signals. Just for info, I did take a Long back at the breakout of the 1H channel, with a stop just below the red line, which I am still holding for a minimal loss if taken out.  I did not add any further positions as I was expecting a pull back (EWT technique), and recent history suggested it would be a strong one (it clearly is, or will break lower...).  That leaves me in a Long already so I will not think about trading another Long until I see a credible turn. As I noted on my EURUSD thread, there is a lower low (for a lower wave B) scenario there too, which must be watched as this is the main USD mirror.  In addition, EURGBP has now put in a higher high and is approaching the long term overhead resistance trend line so ideally we need to see that turn for my lead GBP scenario to bear fruit.  I will post on my Triad thread in due course. Net then I would not be going Long on GBPUSD until I saw a turn on price action, that ideally was backed up by other pairs (especially EURGBP, which means EUR could go lower while GBP rallies).  Any Long should have a stop just below the red line (12430) as you don't want to carry the position into white space.  It is all about minimising exposure and money management really.
    • Stopped me out second time hope this time it will bounce up with power and don't look back lol🙄
    • There are a lot of UBIs on different exchanges may have caused some confusion but IG don't seem to list the company for share dealing, that maybe because it has a low market cap $44 mil. It is on the leveraged platform but listed as 'close only, unborrowable'.
