Getting Filled during Extended Hours


Recommended Posts

Hello,

can I get orders filled during extended Hours on Stocks on Earnings Release/during extreme Voaltility if I put in the order when the Stock wasn't as volatile? How realiable is excecution? Sometimes I can't buy/sell CFDs when the stock is extremely volatile. I can't imagine getting my Order filled at USD 103 Buy Order when the Stock shoots up from 100 to 110 on Earnings. What are the expieriences in live trading?

Hi, yes your order should get filled during extended hours, a pending order will get filled before any at market orders though there is still the chance that there may be excessive slippage outside IG's tolerance level meaning a no fill.

Thanky you for your answer. When have you realized extreme slippage so that your order wouldn't get filled? Wouldn't an Earnings Announcement be likely such an event were there is extreme slippage? I'm trying to time the moment when the price shoots up. 

What would happen if I would place a close order? Would slippage affect me less in that case because it would be a closing order?

one more add on, would I be able to determine a tollerance somehow? let's say a buy order at 103 up to 105 to make the fill more reliable?

no earnings announcements are less likely to be a problem, major news events over night or the weekend that might have a large impact on an entire sector can cause problems. Also you are less likely to have a problem with a pending order rather than trying to enter on a 'at market' order. Extreme slippage is rare and may cause a no fill due to IG's max tolerance limits, the problem with slippage generally is trying to get out of a trade rather than getting in.

you would need to check the platform you are using, for example on the mt4 platform there is a check box for 'allow maximum deviation from quoted price'.

    • Look Ahead to 08/02/23: Oil inventories; TTEF, DIS, UBER and BDEV earnings Oil, tech, and the consumer are set to dominate the markets on Wednesday, with earnings from TotalEnergies (TTEF), EIA data, and results from Walt Disney (DIS) and Uber Technologies (UBER).

    • 07 February 2023 Spot Gold The price of gold has extended its pullback from overbought territory over the last week and has found some near-term support at the 50-day simple moving average (50MA) (green line). Our preference remains to look for long entry on a bullish price reversal. A bullish reversal might be considered if we can see price closing above the 1875 level, provided that the 50MA is not broken with a price close below. Should the 50MA level be broken and the price reversal not confirm, 1820 becomes the next downside support target from the move. In this scenario we not looking to short gold but would rather be looking for a bullish price reversal closer to this level for long entry once again. Should either of these scenarios manifest we will update our guidance accordingly with resistance targets and stop loss considerations. Source: IG charts       Brent Crude Oil The bearish reversal off the 8770-level guided in our previous note has yielded a significant decline, although fallen short of the 7760-support target. The price now looks to be rebounding from oversold territory. Traders who have been short might consider this an indication to exit their trades. The longer-term trend bias is still considered down and should a bearish price pattern emerge before this level, new short entries might be considered. In this scenario a close above the 8770 level might be used as a stop loss consideration, while targeting a move back towards the support low at 7760 once again. Only on a move / close above the 8770 level would the longer-term trend bias be reassessed, and long trades reconsidered Source: IG charts         Our weekly technical report is compiled by in-house senior market analyst, Shaun Murison.
