Could anyone please suggest reasons why a market might be "Closing Only; unavailable to open"?

Hi, it might be because IG are taking the company off the platform if it's fallen below their market cap minimum and it becomes much harder to match buyers to sellers.

Thanks, CN, that appears to be the case most of the time - although in some instances, the company is relatively large, with significant trading volume (on other platforms at least)

ok, I forgot to include the one about IG being at maximum risk exposure for that asset, usually more often seen in the crypto markets 🙂

Thanks again CN - the asset i was referring to is a mid-size Australian company, so maybe the same applies 🤷🏿‍♂️

If there has been a lot of recent one way trades being opened or if the book is heavily one sided IG needs to off set that by opening hedging positions themselves but they have a risk limit, might be that.
