My Orders for QQQ3 ETF (trading on LSE) keeps getting rejected

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I am a beginner with the ig trading platform, and was trying to place an order in QQQ3 ETF in the demo account. But I keep getting the message with "Order Rejected". There does not seem be an issue with the demo margin. Also I have tried placing orders with a limit, as well as a stop loss. But orders still getting rejected. Even if I try an OrderSize of 1, or a round lot size of 10/20?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. As the platform is not even giving a reason for the OrderRejection.

 

Thanks

Siddharth

Hi, you have the Deal ticket up which is a 'at market' order but the market is closed, if you switch to the Order ticket next to it should be fine. see pic below.

Thanks for your input Caseynotes. But QQQ3 is listed on the LSE so is open right now. The price and quotes are updating regularly.

I tried placing an Order as well, but it still gets rejected.

The executive on the phone mentioned that due to falling liquidity of the contract, they have stopped allowing to open positions in this contract. Is there any other 3x leveraged ETF of QQQ allowed still to be traded by a retail UK investor, listed with IG.?

ok, I did put an order on just to check before I posted and it was accepted but just now trying again it's not.

these came up in the search for QQQ though the boost pair were 'for closing only'.

see below.

Don’t you need a certain level of qualification to trade leverage ETFs?

Actually there is no requirement to be a professional trader for taking positions in Leveraged ETFs. A retail trader can take a position in any financial instrument which has a KID (Key information document). The leveraged ETFs issued by Boost have the KID's available. So a retail UK trader can take a position in them. 

Although some other leveraged ETFs, issued by firms in US and elsewhere, like TQQQ (by ProShares), dont have a KID, and can't be traded by retail traders.

    • Mercury, of course, how you label your wave counts is entirely up to you. Corrective waves (according to EWT) are in the following form: ZigZags, Flats (Regular & Expanded) & Triangles. Complicated corrections are usually a combination. A common one is a double Zig-Zag. Triangles can often found in wave 4 or B but never wave 2. Motive waves are usually pretty simple to spot even for a novice. The problem always occur with corrections in my experience. Knowing the substructure count is critical in that respect. ZigZag (5-3-5), Flat (3-3-5), Triangle (3-3-3-3-3). There is often an alternative count (although one will always be preferred) and only subsequent price action reveals which is correct. There are a few rules, but really not many, and some guidelines. With respect Mercury there is no rule nor guideline that I have ever seen that says "the move does not penetrate above the previous high" for a corrective wave!! For those that don't have the time nor inclination you can subscribe to various services. In the hands of an expert, when combined with Fibonacci ratios, trend lines and sentiment indicators it is, IMHO, a powerful tool. 
    • Actually I thought Corrigan was pretty good and pretty much spot on in his general take on a multitude of economic topics, there was no political agenda and of course it was his view so to get balance -er, find someone else with a different econ view?
    • Good piece on copper here from CME focusing on it's strong links with the Chinese economy and the very low current implied volatility. "Copper closely tracks growth in China, yet copper options prices tend to be closely related to U.S. monetary policy. How will Fed rate cuts impact the metal?
