Anyone encountered issues when trying to sell off an open position (FTSE), I get the following pop up up message.

yes, it's saying that due to the fast moving market the price you hit the button at is far gone and you need to retry.

Try again, then try refreshing (or what the equivalent of refreshing is in an app, usually going to another screen then coming back)

Thank you for clarifying, although I'm new to ig platform this never happened to me in the past.

that's right it is unusual, the cause was the surprise announcement of the Fed lowering interests rates yesterday which sent the markets into a frenzy. I had the same problem trying to get into a trade.

    • *parp!*  Ooh what's that smell!  
    • Using Spread bet is not suitable for scalping in my view , you get filled and exit at a poor price and its hard to cover a spread. Depends on what your definition of a 'scalp'  is though   Share dealing is  a lot better for US stocks (no fees) but you need the capital and can only go long. 
    • The point Rayner was making is if you only have a five point target and your win rate is not very high it is probably not a viable strategy.
