DONE ?


Recommended Posts

Ive been with IG for many years and whilst sceptical, and wary of the many bad vibes and rumours that come IG,s way  I have up till now  fended them off.

However, I have to say that a recent couple of trades stopped out by large spikes have questioned my loyalty.

GBPUSD was stopped out 19/11,  22.43 at 12938 ? 8 pips above charted price ??  

USDCAD was stopped out on 18/11 22.05 at 13227, the highest price by any other broker platform was 13216 ?? 10 pips above !!

I have emailed IG, but not heard a thing.  I think I am beginning to share most peoples views over this broker

Thanks for your feedback message. 

When closing a short position you have to check the Ask price. I can see that GBPUSD did go up to 12938. We price FX using twelve currency providers and pick the best bid and ask at the time. At the moment GBPUSD is quite volatile due to market news. We keep our spread charges fixed but if the underlying widens then so will the price.

With the USDCAD postition I can see the high at 22:05 as 13269.2. (using the Ask price, so considering you were closing a short position).

I've checked with our desk and these were legitimate prices. I wouldn't be able to comment on how other brokers price their markets buy you find information on the Forex liquidity providers we use. We are a regulated company that follow the underlying market with spread and we make our money from the spread alone. We would not benefit from moving prices to stop clients out. 

 

Do you mind emailing us again at helpdesk.uk@ig.com and make sure it's from your email address registered with IG. Please also feel free to give us a call about this to discuss in more details.

HELLO Admin.

I have similar experience often too.

So, you are saying if i go short, i need to set the chart on 'ASK' and 'bid' for long? 

Hi, basically yes if you want to actually see price hit or miss on the chart, most can't be that bothered.

To get into a trade you either Buy the Ask or Sell the Bid.

To close a Long you need to sell back at the Bid price.

To close a short you need to buy back at the Ask price.

If price is set to Mid on your chart then you will never see the actual bid or ask get hit.

Hi Frds. You may consider using G'teed stop order.? There is a premium to it though. 

If not then set a stop far enough and watch the market lor. Hope this helps.

If you wish to add a guaranteed stop you will only need to pay the premium if the stop is hit. 

With Spread betting it will simply be size x premium. With CFD it's size x contract size x premium. 

The deal ticket will show you the premium you have to pay:

Best bet is not to use hard stops.

    • AUD/USD appears vulnerable as the US dollar remains strong; the move lower arrives just before a crucial RBA meeting that could add volatility and if bearish momentum continues to unfold, how low will AUD/USD go? Source: Bloomberg   Forex Shares AUD/USD Market sentiment Price Investment   The Australian dollar made a two-year low to end last week as bearish momentum appeared to pick up steam. A bearish triple moving average (TMA) formation requires the price to be below the short term simple moving average (SMA), the latter to be below the medium term SMA and the medium term SMA to be below the long term SMA. All SMAs also need to have a negative gradient. Looking at the 10-, 21-, 55-, 100- and 200-day SMAs, AUD/USD met the criteria for a bearish TMA in the middle of June. It may signal that bearish momentum could continue to evolve. If the price moves back above the 10-day SMA, the TMA will no longer be valid. Support may lie at Friday’s low of 0.6764. The previous lows 0.6829 and 0.6850 might offer break point resistance. The RBA monetary policy committee meeting on Tuesday might provide event risk volatility opportunities. The market is anticipating a 50 basis points (bps) hike and anything other than that could see a significant move. If they hike by less than 50 bps it could see the support levels tested and a break below them might see a continued run lower. Conversely, a hike by more than 50 bps might see resistance levels challenged and if they are overcome, we may have seen the low for the medium-term last week. AUD/USD daily chart Source: TradingView AUD/USD weekly chart Last week’s push lower stopped just above the 50% Fibonacci Retracement level at 0.6758 to make a low of 0.6764. This Fibonacci level may continue to provide support. The bigger picture highlights that since the February 2021 peak of 0.8007, the price has made lower highs and lower lows, revealing descending trend lines above and below the price. The lower trend line that currently dissects the price at 0.6748 is under threat and a break there could indicate further bearishness is unfolding.

    • Golden Finance reports that BTC is approaching a "very favorable risk-reward price area" according to crypto analyst Rekt Capital on social media, who believes "BTC will be different in this cycle as its price has recently been hovering below its 200-week moving average (MA), a bottoming indicator that could face sell-side exhaustion. BTC is reaching historically oversold levels, and this extreme oversoldness will coincide with investment opportunities."
