Demo - Trade gets closed

Question

Guest curiouslyQ

Hi Team,

I've been in and out of the IG platform for a while now, mainly trading a demo account for practice. I recently got more active in trying to improve myself, so it's good to meet everyone.

I currently have 2 questions,  The first is why a trade I made (I was in profit) might have gotten closed automatically? I was trading the EURAUD pair, I understand a trade closing to a stop lost but not sure why it would happen the other way around, I do sometimes leave trades overnight though, would that have an affect?

 

second question: is there a way to experiencing leveraging more than x1 of my contract with a demo? I would switch to MT4 platform but however I find it confusing on setting it up at the start and the appearance isn't as appealing to look at. 

 

Thank you for your time.

I'd have to have a look into the specifics of that curiouslyQ - can i suggest you login to community via https://community.ig.com/login and comment below so I'd be able to link your demo acc to your query? 

Possibly a limit was hit, possibly you were trading a future or there was an expiry? I would have to check.... 

You will be seeing leverage on your account though. The regular 'retail' margin is 3.33% if you're a European client https://www.ig.com/uk/help-and-support/spread-betting-and-cfds/fees-and-charges/what-are-igs-forex-spread-bet-product-details

    • Hurricane season in the US - Where to look for trading opportunities
      Hurricane Michael is already regarded as one of the strongest hurricanes ever to hit US. The worst hit areas of Florida’s northwest coast saw significant damage to residential property, along with President Trump authorizing FEMA to step in and coordinate disaster efforts. 

      Even though the worst might have already passed, the 2018 North Atlantic hurricane season is likely to have sizable effect for the next seven weeks. The effect on the markets can be notable around this time, with the following sectors likely to see an increase in volatility.

    • Does volatility affect IPOs?
      The music entertainment arm of Tencent, which has 800 million users across a variety of platforms in China, had originally planned to go public in the United States imminently. The IPO was initially set to launch as soon as this week but has now reportedly been delayed because of the recent global sell-off. It is not the first company to pull out or postpone an IPO in the recent weeks, and whilst Tencent have declined to comment on the decision, it’s likely to be on the back of volatility seen in the equity markets.
