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.

    • If we could get some news about negotations and a possible ceasefire in Ukraine then i would say this is the bottom https://edition.cnn.com/markets/fear-and-greed "That indicator previously fell to 0 in August 2002, July 2008, September 2011, September 2015, January 2016 and March 2020, observed Hartnett. When it has previously zeroed out, except in the case of a double-dip recession such as 2002 or in the event of systemic events, as in 2008 and 2011, three-month returns have been strong, as the table below shows." https://www.marketwatch.com/story/based-on-history-the-next-bull-market-is-just-months-away-and-could-take-the-s-p-500-to-6000-says-bofa-11655475414
    • The CME Bitcoin futures BTC main contract was at $19,370 late Friday (Chinese time) in New York, up 3.25% from Thursday's New York session, and trading in the $18,630-20,790 range during the session, down 8.87% for the week. the CME Ethereum futures DCR main contract was at $1065.50, up 5.08% from Thursday, and trading in the 1009.50-$1118.00 range, down 13.02% for the week.Maybe there is still a possibility of decline.
