When will IG allow partial position closure with PRT auto trading?


Partial closure of a position or scaling out of a position is a standard trading method but when using PRT with IG it is only possible when back testing strategies. It is not possible to put a strategy live either in demo or in real trading - which seems incredible.

I have created many strategies that benefit from partial position closure but I can only trade them manually which is not very practical. I can't see any logical reason why we can back test with partial position closure but cannot run anything live with it.

As a moderator for ProRealCode forums I notice that newbies are often astounded that partial position closure is not possible with IG when using PRT and I guess many will just go elsewhere to find a platform where it is possible to do what they want.

Does IG have any plans to remove this massive auto trading limitation?

    • There is an interesting development in the price action for Copper as the chart below shows: Soybean is also looking interesting at the same time. Soybean Oil has been on a good run. I shall end this chart feast with Soybean Meal!

    • Podcast interviewing Chris Weston, (previously of IG Australia). I haven't heard the whole thing yet but Chris is always worth a listen. I'm hoping he will talk about using implied volatility as described in the video of his posted in the Technical Analysis thread. https://futuresradioshow.com/podcast/286/
