When is a gaurenteed stop not a gaurenteed stop

I took a spreadbet on Thomas cook shares prior to the weekend they went out of business. I thought I would take a gaurenteed stop to limit my downside in case they did go out of business. What I have now found is that this is not applicable if the company shares are suspended and they go out of business. Has anyone else experienced this ? I would of thought gaurenteed was gaurenteed but I guess not......... I have looked through the IG t&c but cannot find anything that suggests this is in fact true, however IG are adament this is the case as they have not traded and passed my position whilst the market was open.

It would make sense since IG guarantees stops by taking an options position.  When shares are suspended IG cannot execute its options hedge.  IG does not guarantee the stop by using its own money.

    • This weekend don't forget the rules to SAVE LIVES!!!!!   ... unless of course you happen to be going to Ascot 👍
    • Looks like it's a flat squib affair for the SP500 - I'm away early next week, but I'd give this until Tuesday (max 3 weeks after the physical date) to do something otherwise I'm marking it down as a failure Which is not bad, out of all the TC's this one is the one to be most concerned won't work, especially during an UP Bullish major cycle, which is what we are in, but the expectation was for the market to react as per May 2012 as shown on the Internal cycle harmonic chart in the post directly above So unless we get a 7%+ correction from the highs next week - I'll simply log this as failed - remember we trade the market NOT the Time Cycle  The small correction into the actual date is NOT good enough to say that was it! - We should be able to see these corrections/upswings clearly on a monthly chart, which means they should be of significance I'll hold off publishing the next Time Cycle just in case something happens next week SP500 Index Daily Chart: data to Thursday 17th June 2021
