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

    • Another blow to economic growth - EMEA Brief 15 Feb
      Weak retail figures in the US have spilled over to most major stock markets, with European stocks set to open lower this morning. The 1.2% decline in retail sales for the month of December, the biggest drop in almost ten years,  have brought new fears that we are facing a global economic slowdown. The DJIA closed 104 points lower at 25,439.39, the S&P 500 closed 7 points lower at 2,745.73, whilst the Nasdaq managed to close in the positive with a gain of 6.6 points at 7,426.96.
