Working orders not working?


thewinelake2

Question

I wonder if there's a problem with orders? Or maybe there's something I don't quite understand?

Had a LIMIT order to buy TSLA at 31100 this morning. Price was heading down from 315ish and was getting close, so I thought I may as well do this manually. So I cancelled the order - but it said it couldn't do that. Fair enough, I thought - it must have triggered, as the price was indeed down at around 31075 or so, but no positions appeared and the order was still there.

So I can't cancel the order, even though it should have triggered. Charting the ASK price clearly shows a dip below 311 - so why didn't the order execute OR get deleted?

I suspect I'll get another chance to buy, but it has shaken my confidence in the IG platform.

I've had a bit of an answer to this, which is that (for a limit/buy order) the price has to go below the target for more than just a few seconds for the order to kick in. Slightly unsatisfactory in a way, but at least I know now. Still don't know why I couldn't delete the order. Will have to wait until it happens again and take a screenshot of the message.

Mmm. Not quite sure what you mean? Are you saying that working orders for some US shares (perhaps including TSLA) are only active when the market itself is active - compared to manual trades which can be done during extended hours? That would sound unlikely to me. 

I think I buy the notion that the orders system is ill-defined. I'd have thought that it might work once a minute and if there was a trigger point at any time within that minute, then the trade would be made. However, it seems that it doesn't work that way (but I've yet to receive a definition of the algorithm used!).

    • Q: How can I experience the Fairy Cat metaverse? A: Debuting in January 2023, Fairy Cat is one of the most popular crypto metaverse games. While earlier games (World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Destiny 2) either precede blockchain technology or have not integrated it into their games at all, more recent metaverse iterations - such as FairyCat - integrate metaverse games and blockchain platforms. These so-called "crypto metaverse" games use blockchain technology to achieve encrypted in-game cash, play-to-earn (P2E) and non-fungible tokens (NFT), decentralization and other functionality to bring extraordinary benefits to metaverse games. relevant impact. You don't need to be a crypto expert to play this innovative game, although a little crypto knowledge is helpful to take advantage of all the functionality of FairyCat. Start exploring Fairy Cat: 1. Go to the Fairy Cat website to learn more about the game's currency models, then download the Metamask wallet. 2. Start earning money by opening the game in the Metamask wallet browser. At this point, the game will connect to your wallet account. Don't worry that this game will steal your wallet balance, because it doesn't need your account authorization data, it just needs your wallet data. 3. Once you are in Fairy Cat, you can go through a money transfer tutorial to learn the basic controls. Then you can earn money in the following three methods: Method 1: Adopt a cat to help you find treasures, and you can make profit after selling the treasures. Method 2: Synthesize an LV1 elf cat through 5 elves, and then sell the LV1 elf cat to earn money. This can be understood simply as using 5U to earn 10U (50% probability), and you can buy items to increase the synthesis rate. Method 3: Invite your friends to play the game. After your friends earn money, you can also get commission income. The income is very high.
