IG trading Bitcoin question

Recommended Posts

I currently have a position open for bitcoin on the IG trading platform and the market doesn't open for a few more hours . When the market closed I was in a 1k+ profit however now I will be down . However since the markets closed it still shows that I'm up 1k .

My question is , can I close the position and receive my profits still with the market closed , or when I close click position will it place my order and be fulfilled once the market opens at whatever the rate is then . Note : I do have the option to close the position even though it's closed but I'm reluctant to click it as im not sure what will happen. If anyone could help I'd appreciate it alot , the market opens in 3 hours .

@rachelbarnes,

My understanding is that during the times of Friday 10:00 pm to Saturday 4:00 am you will not be able to open a new position or close an existing position. If you do place an order or have any type of stop loss then it will be executed once the market re-opens based on prices on the open.

      Another trade-war headline downs sentiment: There’s some news floating through the wires that sentiment has taken a hit overnight courtesy of some unfavourable trade-war headlines. It’s been reported that Chinese officials aren’t co-operating with their US counterparts, as it applies to certain sensitive elements of trade-negotiations. The S&P500, which had been developing some intraday momentum prior to the release, has retraced throughout trade, consequent to the news. It’s closed flat for the day, but despite this fall, moves in rates and bond markets suggest the fundamentals currently remain the same. The all-important balance between financial conditions and growth expectations is still there, ultimately supporting the bullishly inclined, as markets now prepare for tomorrow morning’s meeting of the US Federal Reserve.


      The unresolvable issues: It’s perhaps an assumption alone, but the (very vague) report leaked to the market about trade negotiations surely pertains to one of the well-understood, seemingly intractable issues embroiling the US and China. Those, at its core, unrelated to economics, but to strategic, and somewhat philosophical differences. These are intellectual property theft, currency manipulation, and Chinese military posturing in the Asian region – especially the South China Sea. These differences are relevant because they boil down to brutal power-politics, and an essential clash of ideologies. This isn’t to suggest a trade-deal, and future bilateral cooperation can’t exist between both parties; but that whatever deal is struck, it’s unlikely to put an end to geopolitical tensions.
