In this event, if the entire system comes to a halt, does anyone have an idea

of how any open trades will be treated? Is there any precedent?

Hey, thanks for your post. 

This hasn't happened yet so I wouldn't be able to say what IG would do. But, with limit down/ up restrictions we've kept the positions open until the market reopened. 

If this were to happen we will inform clients of our actions.

lol!  You will be told what to do by your superiors and anyone who resists will be 'detained' ...

Wake up people ... the stock market is moving in one direction only and it's a matter of time before it gets closed down ...

    • Hey guys, Please help me understand the way which the change and % change are calculated? I understand the candle sticks are based on the time period i.e. daily however the changes do not seem to make sense to me at the moment. I have attempted to derive the use % change from close to close between days, however the numbers do not match up.    I.e. Codan trading on the ASX at close today (24/1/22) had a change of -$0.005 or -0.06%, however the candle stick shows open $8.24 and close $8.39 detailing a change 1.82% during the day, now the trading day prior (21/1/22) close was $8.38 detailing a total change of 0.12% with todays close... this is where I get lost as none of the fluctuations make sense unless I am missing a trick here...   ***In addition while organising this post I noticed that the Codan data changed? The open price was wildly different between my 2x screen shots   Any help understanding this would be greatly appreciated    Regards
