Spread on news session

Recommended Posts

I’m a new IG user. Is there the slippage on news session? Can I pending order, buy stop or sell stop, on the news session? Thank you.

Hi, yes you can set pending orders for news events but be aware that the spread may widen and there can be slippage due to sudden increased volatility and decreased liquidity. Worth practicing on the demo platform to get a feel for it.

    • Larry Connors did a study on this in the 90's (using stops or not) I use stops - I just add a point or 2 to cover spreads etc The markets are mathematical points of force, the laws of probability and probabilistic returns apply to trading - most people never get in sync with that hence the high failure rate Dr. Van Tharps book "Trade your way to financial freedom" details probability, statistical returns, win distribution and risk brilliantly. Hope it helps and good luck on your trading journey
