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.

    • Charting the Markets: 28 November FTSE 100, DAX and S&P 500 drop back in early trading. Dollar weakness drives losses for USD/JPY, and boosts EUR/USD and GBP/USD. And gold, Brent crude and natural gas at risk on Chinese concerns.   This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • Dollar weakness drives losses for USD/JPY and boosts EUR/USD and GBP/USD Quiet trading on Monday has seen further USD weakness, allowing the euro, sterling and yen to make headway against the greenback.    Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Monday 28 November 2022  EUR/USD recovery continues EUR/USD continues to claw its way higher, pushing back above the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) in early trading. The rally from the September-low has yet to show signs of reversing, and with the move above the 200-day we may see additional momentum should the price be able to push on above $1.05. Additional gains target $1.063, last seen in May and June. A reversal below $1.02 would be needed to suggest that the price has once again reverted to the downtrend of the past year. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD targets continued rebound A move higher in early trading has seen GBP/USD push back towards the 200-day SMA. Like EUR/USD, the pair remains in a move higher, one that has put the 2022 downtrend on ice for the time being. Additional gains target $1.225 and then $1.266. It would need a move back below $1.165 and the 100-day SMA to suggest that the sellers have reasserted control on a longer-term basis. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY drops further towards 200-day MA The breakdown in the uptrend continues here for USD/JPY, as the price pushes below ¥138.00 once again. A move back to the (still rising) 200-day SMA seems likely, marking the first time the pair has hit this indicator since February 2021. This would still be a higher low if the pair succeeds in bouncing from there. A mid-month recovery faltered at ¥142.00, and so it would need a move back above here to suggest that a low is in for the pair from current levels. Source: ProRealTime
