Trades Forced Closed - IG MT4

Question

Hi, We are facing issues since two weeks and it has happened three times in last two weeks. We had EURUSD, AUDUSD, USDJPY trades running. And as soon as a new buy stop/sell stop USDJPY trade triggers, few of our running trades got closed automatically. We are trying to contact IG support but no positive response so far. When we call, they just put on hold and don't connect with trading team. And when we email , they don't answer our concern.

Could anyone in this forum help us understand what can be causing this issue. We have double checked every thing that these trades are not closed by us accidentally. And there is no log in the MT4 journal for these closed trades.

I am attaching a screenshot where you can see that four USDJPY buy stop trades got triggered and at the same time, two of our trades (Order# 29601554 &
29526241) just closed immediately. You can see in the screenshot that force closed trades has not hit the SL/TP.

This issue has happened 3 times in last two weeks. One thing I will mention that this is happened when USDJPY trade triggers but not all the time. Some time USDJPY triggers and no trade closed forcefully.

Hi, this trading looks very much EA driven? If it is then the bot coding is more likely to be the source of the problem though if the problem has suddenly started inexplicably just recently it will be interesting to hear from any other users similarly affected.

    • Hey @dmedin. That news piece is something I long suspected. If anyone can move the market with just one tweet then why shouldn't the cronies profit from it. I'm just surprised this has taken so long to get to the "news".
    • Ok, so I took this approach to the next level. Rather than telling the algorithm enter long at 25% and enter short at 75% levels, I decided to let the algorithm decide itself at what levels its best to enter short or long. This simplifies the strategy and boosts its gains dramatically. Top level stats over 100,000 5min candles: Gain: +1,307% % of winning trades: 60% Starting with a £2000 account, after 1 year and 1 quarter that account would have grown to almost £30k (£28k). The equity curve looks also a lot more stable, too. I resolved the issue with the lot size, this is now a formula. Unfortunately we still have 3 negative months, but overall the max runup is a lot higher than the max drawdown. Overall time in market is only 20%, so there should be the opportunity to run multiple of this strategy on different assets simultaneously to further boost the return. If let's say 3 of these programs could run simultaneously and deliver similar results you could grow £2000 to £100k within about 18 months. Still not as good as the results of the few world-class top traders like Ross Cameron from Warrior Trading, etc but a start nonetheless. The variables which the program optimised are the following: Take Profit for Long Positions: 84 points Take Profit for Short Positions: 70 Points Entry LvL for Long Positions: 23 Points below the low of previous day Entry LvL for Short Positions: 7 Points below the high of previous day Interestingly, it turned out the strategy works best without a set stop-loss, but just to close out any open positions at 21.00 o'clock at night, if not already closed by the take profit rule. I'm gonna simulate this on NASDAQ next. Obviously will need to find out the 4 variables again, as these will be subject to the Index where this is traded.   What do you guys think? Worth a shot this strategy?  
    • Lool, I'm sorry for my first post here, but it's funny :)
