Why only offered a day limit order on some shares?


Guest Jamesh123

Question

Guest Jamesh123

Hi there.

I’m new to trading. And I’m still getting to grips with the fact that there’s a lack of stop losses and trailing stops on the IG UK share platform.

I therefore tend to get around this issue by placing a “sell order” for my total held shares at a point which I’d deem to cut my losses. I also set an alarm for when a share price hits a desired level I’d like to take profits.

However today I bought shares in Angling direct plc (AIM share) but was only offered a day limit order type. I ended up losing out when ideally I would have liked to hold these shares for the long run.

Could anyone shed some light on why I could only place this type of order and not a GTC order type for these shares? Is it to do with the AIM share type?

Many thanks in advance!

James

Thankyou for the reply.

Yes this was completely long term. And ideally I would still be holding the shares. However the day limit was the end of me!

Like I said I'm pretty new to this and haven't dived into the world of spread betting/FX and shorter term trades yet.

Turned 30 this year and so I'm looking at building up varied investments over the next 10 years. (Any advice welcomed) 

Ill have to read up abit more on the AIM market as I know it is a different beast all together compared to the FTSE!

Warm regards. 

James

Thanks again!

I have started building a portfolio of funds in a Stocks and Shares ISA every month (which I have recently upped the monthly amount). And so hopefully over time that will grow. 

I also have a few other non stock investments which helps keep things diverse, as I prefer not to keep all my eggs in one basket so to speak.

Ill keep pressing on with educating myself in the markets. And hopefully it will lead to more growth!

    • I was scrolling through the forums and stumbled upon your post about liquidity in the crypto world. Let me tell ya, you hit the nail on the head with that one. Liquidity is like the lifeblood of this whole decentralized finance thing, right? Without enough liquidity, transactions can feel like pulling teeth.
    • One of the unique advantages I get from my gaming enthusiasm is to be exposed to cutting edge innovations in the gaming sphere. This time, I came across Altered State Machine (ASM), a project that seems to be shaking up the industry with it's decentralized AI protocol. With ASM, you own a unique AI "brain" represented as an NFT, complete with its own strengths, weaknesses, and potential for growth. Wild🔥...    So in 2023 FIFA cut ties with football gaming giants EA Sports and I am now wondering if it had anything to do with the new partnership with ASM cos I can easily see how that played out. ASM has also partnered with iconic brands like Muhammad Ali and ABG, showcasing the potential of AI in the gaming industry.  But ASM isn't the only player in the AI gaming space. Competitors like Alethea AI and SingularityNET are also exploring the potential of AI in gaming making it an interesting horse race. However, ASM's focus on NFT ownership, interoperability, and big partnerships is giving it a unique edge at the moment.    From what I understood, ASTO is going to be the lifeblood that fuels the ASM ecosystem. It will power various aspects like gameplay, training fees, and even NFT sales. Owning ASTO gives you a stake in this dynamic ecosystem and it will be listing on Bitget with each users able to grab up to 1,250 ASTO. I have to say AI gaming is evolving rapidly, and ASM is a frontrunner. So, keep an eye on this space, guys - the future is intelligent, and it's gonna be exciting!
