    • Hi I'm having trouble understanding why, when I place two orders, I get a second order closed rather than triggered. So I have enough in my account with plenty of leverage left to cover any major swing in price. I start by placing an order 2 pips above the current price, for example, and then a 5 pip target with a high stop loss. If the trade triggers and then goes in the opposite direction I then wish to recover some of that loss by placing a second trade 2 pips below the current price with a 5 pip target and high stop loss. Once the second trade is triggered, IG just kicks out both trades.¬† I'm lost as to why this is occurring as like I say, there is no issue with leverage or account balance.¬†
    • Thanks for clarifying. The support person clearly did not understand this at all, and the website is very vague! The 0.5% is something I'm used to from other platforms, and much easier to absorb as a cost on small positions when making a good entry
    • There was another fork the other day - Bitcoin Latinum - the world's largest "insured" digital asset. One wonders if every time another variant is created¬†it simply draws away potential investors from¬†the original version. I bet committed Bitcoiners wish these variants would all just fork off ūüėČ I saw something the other day that happened to mention that a Bitcoin was worth about 10 ounces of Gold.......then it hit me - would I¬†prefer¬†to be offered one Bitcoin out there in the ether or ten ounces of physical Gold in my¬†actual possession? 10 Bitcoin to buy a single ounce of Gold intuitively feels like the more sensible¬†way around as I'm certain that¬†Gold is safe but several times less certain that Bitcoin is - so we could be out by a factor¬†of 100! But whilst fund managers all start allocating the odd fractional percent to get exposure to Alpha for minimal portfolio downside the price will probably hold or bubble up even more. It will be interesting though¬† if national regulators later turn round and ban funds from holding cryptos - then they will all have to rush for the exit at the same time. Maybe that's the ultimate expected outcome.¬†¬†According to Wikipedia in¬†March 2018¬†0.5% of bitcoin wallets owned 87% of all bitcoins ever mined. Imagine if¬† transferring that 87% to fund managers at peak prices is the intended end-game before it all collapses?¬†It would make Bernie Madoff look like a mere pick-pocket. ¬†
