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.

    • The pull-back is here - APAC brief 23 Jan
      The pull-back is here: The pull-back markets were waiting for – the one we inevitably had to have – has arrived. It’s risk-off across financial markets and the optimism that drove global stocks off their December lows has subsided. Relatively speaking, it’s been a day of significant downside, but nothing yet to warrant tremendous fear. It should be common knowledge, but it bears repeating: proper validation that global equities have truly established a recovery ought to be judged not by the latest high, but by where markets form their next low. The retracement which is apparently upon market participants now hands a golden opportunity to judge this market for what it truly is – have the bulls reclaimed their dominance, or have the bears lulled them into a trap, and now stand poised to assert further downside?


      The market’s rationale: A greater look at this subject and Wall Street’s price action later. In relation to the overnight sell-off, the rationale was as feeble as the one that got stocks to their recent peaks in the first place. It’s been chalked up to reduced positivity towards the trade-war, and renewed concerns about global growth. To begin with, very little data throughout the past week has provided a clear and substantial picture on economic growth. The boost in sentiment has come from geopolitical or monetary policy developments that was assumed to be supportive of the growth outlook – at some point in the future.  Some nice-noises made between the US and China in trade negotiations here, and a few dovish comments from a handful of US Fed speaker there, is what ignited the latest part of the risk-on rally.
