Order entry window should have stop and limit points fields to the same number of decimal places as the instrument open level.

Recommended Posts

In the order (and trade) entry window the stop points and limit points fields are fixed at 1 decimal place.  If you trade an instrument like US 500 (SnP) then the price for this is quoted to 2 decimal places.  You can enter an order open level to 2 d.p.  but your stop and limit is limited to 1 decimal place.

 

There should be consistency between all the fields.

Hi 

 

Thanks for the post.  On any deal ticket across our markets, the stop level can be entered either by number of points (to one decimal place) or as a monetary value, which is designed to give you a good level of accuracy.  Based on your feedback, we're going to look at introducing the option to set an absolute level for stops, which should allow you to enter the number of decimal places relevant to the market.

 

Let us know if you have any more questions about this!  if anyone else has feedback on how stops are entered, we'd be happy to hear it too.

 

Thanks,

 

Hannah

    • Financial Anarchy: one of the main fallacies of Bitcoin. You are that independent holding bitcoin that anytime you want to buy it or sell it have to go through an exchange using your full identity. With all sort of passports and ids checks. Let's not forget that the main goal of many bitcoiners is to amass as much of the correlated fiat currency as possible. With the romantic topic of becoming a blade runner paying in SHA-256 hashes to other elite individuals you watch how your virtual coins grow in value, that value that is established in that so-hated fiat currency. The happiness of a bitcoiner comes with the grow in price of that coin in the exchange. The more coins of the fiat currency they get from their bitcoins the happier they are. So it is all cyberpunk literature with a bit of TAZ philosophy, but bitcoin is no more than a very volatile "financial product", unfortunately , and since I am surrounded in IT departments by bitcoiners I am so tired of listening to people excusing themselves for choosing this overhyped movement over any other FX pair or metal. I understand that people want to get rich quickly and that is why they chose bitcoin, but they want to get rich by grabbing more and more of that fiat currency that they hold in the bank accounts. So let's be honest with ourselves, let's cut the rubbish and call it like it is: Greed on a very volatile market.  
    • The Fed wants to ban it or tax it. No central government likes crypto as its a form of financial anarchy. 
    • Very good point, Casey. They see Bitcoin and want to emulate it, or in the case of the Fed try and ban it. Bitcoin and Crypto have DEMAND. A Euro backed or $ backed crypto may not have them same demand, but will also be seen as currency. Crypto's lack of provenance (political and geographic) is a major USP. The market normally wins as governments know too well.
