BUY then SELL positions


Recommended Posts

Hi Everybody (anybody?), 

Newb here. I have a feeling this will be obvious, but I can't quite work out why when I'm going long then suddenly go short on the same currency pair both trades are immediately closed???? I can kinda understand the long closing but not both????

Hi there,

 

A stupid question (probably) is it possible to have both a long and a short position at the same time? i am thinking if something is in a long term down trend, but a scalping long opportunity presents itself, can it be taken or would it close the original position, I am thinking on both FX and Indices?

 

Thanks

Liam

Hey Liam - Yes - just use the 'force open' button as shown above, and both positions can be run simultaneously.

    • Can anyone shed light on what the volatility index on IG tracks? It doesn't seem to track the classic VIX index, neither those that are a few weeks or months out. I figured it may be an average of say the first and second month VIX futures, but can someone clarify what the underlying is? Thanks!
    • I am able to sell the ETFs using quote. Problem is it is very tough to get IG's phone. I was in a queue for more than 30 minutes. and no answer.
    • and so suddenly, within the last few days; - Vit D finally gets govt recommended. - Invermectin finally gets approval. - HCQ now suggested as a treatment instead of being banned. - WHO finally revises PCR test to reduce huge ratio of false positives.   With all these much cheaper treatments now available it's lucky for big Pharma then that all their vaccines have already been bought up for the next few years. 🙄   .
