sell trade on equity futures.

Question

Hi all,

I've been exploring equity futures, and I've encountered a problem.  Sometimes, although the sell box is lit up, when you try and place the trade you get a message that "this transaction cannot be completed because of the high cost of stock borrowing in the underlying market".   This is a bit of an issue, as you can't tell which stocks are going to hit this until you try to place a trade.  Most of the FTSE 100 stocks seem to be OK.  All of the FTSE 250 and the NASDAQ seem to show this behaviour and some of the S&P 500.   Anyone else hit this problem, and does anyone know of a definitive list of which stocks you can actually sell a future in?

Any info gratefully received.

    • Hi @beck_l24 Thanks for reaching out,  When trading on a limited risk account you are required to place guaranteed stops on all of your trades. Using a guaranteed stop guarantees your stop level regardless of whether market gapping occurs. In the event of market gapping IG takes on the risk and will fund the slippage to guarantee your level. With this in mind when we perceive the market to be volatile we will increase min stop distances to reflect the level of risk that we are willing to take on in that period. Unfortunately you will not be able to avoid this on your account as it is expected behaviour when there is some volatility.  However you can reach out to helpdesk@ig.com.sg should you wish to enquire about upgrading your account from limited risk to standard. Standard account does not require guaranteed stops.  All the best,  Anda
