Cannot move the stops!!!


OptionsTrader

Question

i have several 1 point and 2 points positions opened at the moment.

I move the stop to breakeven to walk away from the screen. I get the message "Position amended". And then the stop goes right back to initial place!!!

Why is that? It only happens with the £2 positions, the £1 positions I can change with no problem.

Hi @OptionsTrader, limits and stops will have a minimum distance whereby you cannot place them within the minimum points away. This might be one of the reasons why your stop amendments are rejected. I have looked into your account but could not find a £2 where your stop was rejected. If you could send us an email with the specific details we could look into it further for you.

Thanks Daniela, I closed all the £2 positions since I could not be in front of the screen. I am opening £1 and £1.5 now and things seem to be working fine again. 

Also, I opened an order in the US Dollar basket but it does not show up in the chart?

    • basically yes, IG should be in touch if that is the case. see  What happens to my shares position if the company is involved in a takeover | IG UK and Ownership of underlying share and company divestments/mergers - IG Trading Support - Dealing Questions - IG Community
    • Ok that fine. So GIK is a SPAC, if the vote goes as expected, will my shares be automatically changed for ZEV shares? 
    • Haha, people really still believe this merry-go-round nonsense. He is of course just paving the way for more lockdowns later in the year.   Julia Hartley-Brewer  @JuliaHB1 11m If @BorisJohnson thinks the vaccines aren't the reason why we've seen plunging death rates from Covid among those who've been jabbed, he should probably also have a word with the @BorisJohnson who tweeted this last Friday...
