Why only offered a day limit order on some shares?

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.

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!

    • Coffee Elliott Wave Analysis Function - Counter-Trend Mode - Correction Structure - Double Zigzag for blue Y Position - Wave C of (B) Direction - Wave C of (B) is still in progress Details - We recounted Coffee on all time frames. However, we expect the commodity to ascend after completing the zigzag wave (B) around the Fibonacci reversal zone of 212.9-203.9. Invalidation level is at 192.30. Coffee Elliott Wave Analysis Overview: In the long term, Coffee prices have been on a bullish run since October 2023. Despite several pullbacks, each previous top has been consistently breached. The last top was made in April 2024 at 245.5, followed by a decline to 192.3 within three weeks, extending to May 7th. Notable recoveries started from there. However, prices have yet to breach 245.5 to confirm the continuation of the bullish sequence from October 2023.   Daily Chart Analysis: Since January 2023, a double zigzag structure has been unfolding. Wave W (circled) finished on April 18th at 245.5, and the corresponding wave X (circled) was completed at 192.3 on May 7th, where wave Y (circled) began. Wave (A) of Y appears to have concluded with the impulse surge to the current peak in June 2024. Prices are now correcting into wave (B). If wave (B) completes above 192.3, buyers should gain the advantage to push prices higher, especially above the 245.5 top.   H4 Chart Analysis: On the H4 chart, wave (B) is subdividing into a zigzag structure, potentially completing around the 212.9-203.9 Fibonacci zone before turning upside in wave (C) above 245.5. Alternatively, prices might move sideways between the 245.5 and 192.3 extremes, suggesting a triangle structure for wave X (circled).   Summary: In conclusion, Coffee prices remain bullish with potential for further gains, contingent on the completion of the current corrective wave (B).

    • I have not tried AI for analysis; it is exciting to me, but unclear. It would be interesting to see some kind of training video with an example of use.
