MT4 can not close trade when logging in through the web platform!!

Question

Please could some one explain why there is access to an MT4 platform when you log on to the web account but you can not  close or open trades or is there something wrong with my computer?

 

I tried to close a bad trade the other day by logging in through the IG website into MT4 I was not allowed to close the trade and resulted in my account being margined

 

"Your order was rejected!!!!"

@rachelbarnes,  MT4 is a third party platform downloaded onto your computer and so is not web based and can't be accessed through the IG web site.

IG does receive trade and account information from the MT4 platform which is displayed on your 'My IG' account page but am not sure how you might of even tried to place an order to get the rejection notice if going through the IG site.

    • two equal channels. Big down move today, I'm not short ( I don't short oil ) but would like to see price fall to $55.00
    • Thanks so much for the explanation, I better start flicking between settings. 🍻
    • Hi, to open a long trade you buy the ask price and to close that long trade you sell at the bid price, the mid is just a reference between the two, the difference between the two is the brokers markup. You are best to have the chart set to mid but be aware it won't show exactly where the in/out of the trade was activated. Tick volume shows the number of orders processed but not the size of each, the online platform shows actual volume as taken from the exchange if there is one, FX must use tick volume as there is no central exchange. A tick chart just shows orders as they are matched and the resulting price change.
