Trades Failed To Close Automatically When Limits Set

Recommended Posts

Dear IG Community,

Wondering if anyone else has had this issue or can help advise?

I am new to this platform and trading in general therefore my apologies if I use incorrect terms.  I am currently in Demo mode as I prepare to Go Live.

I opened a trade today and set a Stop/Take Profit level which was hit but my trade did not close automatically.  Luckily, I was logged in and noticed to close out the trade manually. 

This is the second time I have noticed this.  I have already raised a query regarding this observation a few weeks ago and am still awaiting for an acknowledgement and a response from the IG Customer Service team so I thought I might try my luck on this forum. 

Todays Trade details :
High Grade Copper
Stop Level Set : 21888.0 - did not close automatically
High Price Level Hit at 1532hrs of 21931.1 - the, in my opinion, trade should have closed automatically. 

I am currently in Demo mode as I prepare to Go Live but this issue has now occurred twice for me and makes me nervous about investing in the company/system.

Thank you in advance for any responses.

    • 👀 ... PM announcement due at 4 pm.  
    • Lockdown until the flu virus (corona) is beaten for good. Victory at any cost. You know it makes sense!!!!!    The absolute state of these clowns ... Apparently, SAGE now saying that if we don’t have an immediate, month-long lockdown Christmas is off. The cost of such folly will mean millions of people won’t be able to afford Christmas anyway. The virus will still be waiting in early December. @allisonpearson   The answer is to lock SAGE up for a month and let the rest of us proceed sensibly with our lives, while backing medical professionals to improve treatment and care of the infected, reducing mortality. Lord Moylan @danielmgmoylan   Reminder that Covid-19 has a similar fatality rate as common flu and that the 5 year rolling average for deaths from flu type infections is around 30,000 a year, was before covid, during covid and will be after covid. It is typically the last battle of the old and sickly and has been since forever.
    • Glad to see your posts at the Indices thread. James16 and company at the Forex Factory had the great phrase “day trading off the daily charts”. That and trading the hourly ranges is what I have been doing recently.
