How to Open multi directional trades?


lilyblk

Question

Hi, 

I'm trying to open trades in both long and short positions, selecting force open. I opened 3 trades all the same way, one opened a short position while the other two closed some of my long positions instead. 

Can anyone help me work out what I'm doing wrong? I don't get the same outcome in my demo account?

Thanks

Cat

Thanks for this, I thought I had force open selected but can't confirm it now the trade is in the past and already executed. 

I also had a trade execute which wasn't showing in my "working orders". I did place the trade but as it wasn't showing, I didn't think it went through so didn't cancel it when the trend went the other way.

Does anyone else have this issues or do I just have IG gremlins?

Hi, there are occasionally reported issues with the demo platform but it's very rare to see a problem reported on the live platform. The difference is that the demo is used as a test bed for the technicians to try updates and upgrades before releasing them onto the live platform.

    • ''We are starting to see wholesale failure of the vaccines.''       '(mRNA) is brand new technology and there were bound to have been some mistakes.'  So in hindsight probably not a good idea to start with a 100% global population trial 🤪🤪 Mentioned in vid below is that the virus limits itself to certain regions and cells whereas the vaccine spike proteins are spread throughout. This was the problem with previous mRNA vaccine animal studies, the autoimmune system started attacking everything until the animal died.     Israelis' have had enough of this nonsense, booster uptake levelling off at 46% as govt talks about a 4th shot.   Still no sign of the flu, 🤔, you don't suppose these been a lot of 'rebranding' going on do you?   Reminder that covid has a similar Infection Fatality Rate as the common flu.
