Placing an Order


Guest Packie

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am not entirely clear when to use the order option rather than go with deal. 

If I want to keep open say the FTSE 100 and go long for a number of weeks should I place an order.

When placing an order what does it mean by 'Price level' and 'Limit'.

Is an order executed right away.

Would appreciate if anyone could clarify this for me.

hi @Packie,  you have hit on it really, the 'Deal' ticket means you what to open a trade immediately (at market price).

On the 'Order' ticket (which means you want to open a trade when price reaches a certain 'price level' in the future), the 'Limit' is the take profit level you want to close the trade,  the 'Stop Loss' is the level you want to close the trade if price goes against you.

Thank you for the help. So it is an order that I need to go for.

I am testing this on a demo account and have filled in an order as follows:

FTSE 100

- Order

- Buy 7112.6

- Size 2

- Price level 7113

- Expiry Good till cancelled

- Stop 10

- Limit 20

- Net off

When I select 'Place stop order' I get 'Order level too close to market level' 

The order is not placed, what should I do differently.

@Packie, ok, you are looking to set your Buy entry order just a single point above the close but the algo won't let you do that and for good reason. Massive gaps can occur on the open, but after pre-market churn you could have found your order accepted and then stopped with massive slippage and even then find the market open in your favour. 

The algo has determined a minimum of 200 points away from the closing price for market open. The alternative is to wait for market open and re-submit a new order once weekend volatility has been worked out of the market which may only take a few seconds or minutes.

    • As the crypto sector undergoes transformation, Asia emerges as a formidable player alongside the established giants of the US and Europe. With significant investments and a growing user base, the region's potential for dominance is unmistakable. Leading this movement is Dubai, pioneering crypto adoption with its favorable regulations, attracting crypto exchanges focused on the region. A standout in this field is Bitget, Asia's largest web3 wallet provider, boasting a user base of over 19 million. Through regular events, Bitget cultivates community engagement, recognizing and rewarding the trust and loyalty of its users. One such event, the ongoing "Bitget Super Savings," offers over $20,000 worth of hot tokens across various categories, providing users with an opportunity to enrich their crypto portfolios. For those in South Asia, Bitget extends an invitation to participate in this ongoing event. Seize the chance to earn free hot tokens before the event concludes on April 26th. Good luck!
    • It is ideal that crypto currency exchanges as the admisnistrators of users’ funds should account to them from time to time through transparency reports that can be drafted atleast at the end of every quarter.  Platforms like Bitget have dropped theirs and their growth is pretty impressive. Both spot and derivative volume have grown exponentially. This is a testament to the fact that the team has been doing the good work. In Q1 of 2024, the CEX’s spot trading volume increased by a whopping 113% peaking about $160 billion and the futures trading volume was at about $1.4 trillion signalling a 146% increase.  In march, the platform witnessed the most remarkable growth thus far in the derivative market making it the 3rd largest derivative trading platform for the first time since december 2022.  The user base has also trumped up from the previous 20 million to 25 million users globally.  This demonstrates pure positive social sentiment and traction. In a similar vein, through the course of the previous quarter, the platform added about 186 new tokens, this has placed its number of tokens at 750+ tokens available and 820+ spot tokens.  Most of the listings were relatively very early and some investors made fortunes off it. The launchpool has also witnessed impressive growth, a total of 7 launchpools were done and this led to an increased demand for its native token $BGB. $Bgb has been on steroids since the last quarter, breaking ATHs and establishing new ones. Bitget applauds consistency and security, its Proof of reserve has also grown to about $612 million since March. With this type of security framework users confidence will be instilled to further use Bitget. Here's some proof of the above; https://twitter.com/TokenInsight/status/1767010819282526267
    • While browsing the web today, I stumbled upon the Apu Apustaja site, captivated by its melodious music and perfect rhythm. Intrigued, I delved into the project. APU stands out as a community-driven memecoin that emerged from the fallout of a rug-pulled project. Through unwavering dedication and transparency, the community resurrected APU, propelling it to become one of the fastest-growing memecoins, boasting a market capitalization of over $115M according to CoinMarketCap. A closer look reveals APU's ambitious aim: to emulate and surpass the success of PEPE. With leading exchanges like Bitget now listing APU, exposing it to a wider audience, it seems only a matter of time before this gem reaches a market cap of $500M or even $1B. What are your thoughts on this project? I encourage you to explore their website to get a firsthand glimpse of what I'm talking about.
