How is this platform working


Recommended Posts

I am currently new to IG platform is use the web one,

 

My problem is I don't understand how placing an order works,

 

firs of all how can I sell something if I don't have any shares yet as I have tried to do so with a demo acc, 

 

for example the price of a stock is at 5$ and I wanna place a limit order and buy at 5$ and the set another limit order to sell at 5.5$ how do I do that?

Hi @Marian, You have a leveraged demo share dealing account so you can sell without ownership by lending from IG. 

You may have been looking for a straight non-leveraged share trading account but IG don't have a demo for that as yet.
