Black circle with 20 on it



I'm am new to trading and bought shares last night, if I go to Position on the IG app , instead of a latest  price like my other shares I have bought it had a black circle with a 20 in it like a billard ball. The selling price is 0.019. What does this mean

No, also has the same black ball on the right of the page, same line at the company name and on the trading page if has the buying and selling price of 0.019 for both, then in the middle this black ball again with 20 in it.

@Phil900, on the IG web page the shares have a restriction placed on them, presumably just today, they are marked as Closeing only (Unborrowable), so no new to open orders accepted.

I'm presuming that is what the symbol is referring to.

Though not sure if that applies to a unleveraged account.

The black dot with 20 inside means that the price is delayed 20 minutes. You could also activate live data from Settings on MyIG!
It is also true that when the stock is in closing only, in a physical shares account, you would be able to reduce your position but not add up to it.

    • Hi - there's nothing wrong with having target level(s) - If it works it works Just remember as in chart 1 above, if the market is going UP then it will create a series of higher lows and higher highs and one can trail the market up by simply using the swing low points - because if the market is trending upwards it ain't going to hit a swing low point until it needs a rest, changes degree or the trend is changing That's a major law of the market (vice versa for it going  down and for sideways ranges overlapping of swings)  The blue dots on chart 1 show you the times the presumed swing low/low didn't work out
    • Thanks THT, yes well i do estimate my possible returns by estimating a target price.  Of course if the market doesn't get there then i've got several smaller rolling losses to deal with and i've not figured out yet how i make up for that if it turns out i'm wrong.  I'm currently not using a trailing stop for simplicity and the sake of not adding another variable into the mix.  However, I imagine that only having a binary situation where the market either hits the stop or target is too simplistic in a fluid market..
