What happens if...,

Recommended Posts

You place a position in the belief something will go up, as a dfb, and it goes down before it goes up?  I have seen that you can rollover your position and if I have understood it correctly, they charge you for doing this - do they charge only if you are showing a loss or do they charge regardless of whether the position is showing a profit or not? 

If it goes down, and you haven’t put a stop or a limit on it so that you can manually close it when the time is right, is there any way IG can close it or would it stay in place until you want to close it? Or would they ask for you to put more money to boost your available funds?  Or is it simply that you can open a position and if it does show a loss you can just hold that position until it comes good and the only thing to be aware of is that they will have an overnight charge until it is closed?? 

thanks in advance!

    • This is not an acceptable explanation for me unfortunately, I am fully aware of the need to move spreads and I had accounted for that. Especially at the open of a market, but your spread was totally unreasonable the spread on DEC contracts is already at 130pip standard, to increase it to 400pips and hold it there even after 5 mins of trading. As my execution was a 09:06 the main market volatility had already been accounted for.   So disappointing after 6years being a customer and on a profitable trade as well: 
    • Dear @MB1470, Thank you for your post. Please note that dealing spreads on shares are subject to variation, especially in volatile market conditions or other unusual circumstances.  Market spreads can widen significantly, particularly at the beginning and end of the trading day, and minimum spreads may exist. Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • This morning at the market open on NOVO DEC contracts. On Spread Bet.    the spread moved from 138pips to close to 400 pips? How can this be reasonable the candle is only displayed on a 15-2min time period not on smaller periods. At market open 09:00 ????? How is this even remotely reasonable?
