Unknown error when trying to close positions


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm trying out the demo spreadbet account and i keep finding that when i try to close a position it won't let me.  Very frustrating when you come into profit & then you can't close it out.  I should be able to close at any point right even if i have set a limit and stop? (not guaranteed stop). Luckily on my last two trades both hit my limits but i couldn't have intervened if i wanted to.

Thanks for the help

Thank you so much for your post, 

There have been some issues with our demo account. Due to volatility we have to focus on our live account but we do apologise for the inconvenience. I will speak with our technical team to take some time for the demo account. 

We understand that the demo environment is a place people come to practice trading before they feel comfortable to move to a live account. 

Apologies again, 

All the best.

Thanks for your comments Charlotte.  What happens if you have technical issues closing trades on a live account, obviously this could have quite an impact on profit/loss.  Lets just say i was glad this was happening on a demo account.  You really want to know you can rely on the platform when its a live account.

it happens with your live account too, closed positions don't disappear for a while. I just log out and log in again, kind a refresh!

Hi Ranz, thanks for that. So essentially when you press close it should have done it, its just not updating to say so.  I imagine this can be frustrating and potentially worrying on a live account..

Thanks

Thanks for your post. 

If this were on the live environment we are able to see delays therefore would compensate accordingly. 

The demo environment can have lagging issues especially when we're busy have have to direct our attention to live queries. We do apologise for the inconvenience. 

All the best, 

Charlotte

@CharlotteIG Hello to you.

I've emailed on the 2nd April regarding this issue on my Live account and have had no reply.  I've never had a reply to my emails in the 12 months I've been with IG.  I'm wondering if you could look into this for me please?

 

Thanks.

If this is on your live account it's definitely an issues. 

If you've had a recent case let me know and I will get someone to investigate. 

Do any error messages pop up when you can't close the position?

Hi, yes, Live Spread Betting.  I've emailed twice adding video evidence of my inability to edit stops or close positions for 20 minutes.  I need to refresh the page to see candle movement etc.  Unfortunately it's not a new issue.  I've been advised many times to move to PRT, but it's a habit now hard to break.  Even today I'm missing candle info and Volume data.

Thank you.

    • The P2E ecosystem has always been both fun and rewarding and that world is about to welcome a game-changer in Animalia's ANIM token. With my portfolio of playing all kinds of games and recently the P2E genre, I will say Animalia is a mix of Axie Infinity and Pokemon, with a dash of Dogecoin thrown in for good measure. Animalia is a captivating new game that blends meme-tastic creatures, strategic card battles, and the power of blockchain technology. And at the heart of this ecosystem lies the ANIM token, ready to unlock a world of possibilities. With an affordable initial market cap and a bull market launch, Animalia wants everyone to join the fun. Competitors like Axie Infinity and Gods Unchained have paved the way, but Animalia brings its own unique blend of humor, education, and community focus. It's not just about battling, with Animalia you can collect unique cards, own a piece of the game, and participate in shaping its future through governance rights. Animalia also raises awareness about endangered species and the importance of animal conservation. I have to say I Animalia have done a good job with the graphics of the game albeit a card game. I saw an opportunity with the first 1,000 users who achieve a spot net buy volume of 100 USDT in ANIM/USDT pairs will receive 56 ANIM each during the current promotion on Bitget until March 1. I like to play but I love to earn too so I'm heading over! What are your thoughts about Animalia? Are you going to be an early bird to get you share of the ANIM worm?
    • Hey everyone! I want to play free games that use NFTs in a fun way. GameFi is getting big lately with new ways to play and earn. Does anyone know of games where you can start playing for free, but they still use NFTs in a cool way? Maybe with animal or crypto cards... We know NFTs can make games more fun instead of just seeming like a money grab.  Specifically, I'm looking for games that: - Are really fun even if you don't spend money - Have an active community of players  - Are on major platforms like Bitget etc. - Let you collect rare NFTs just by playing that are worth keeping - Have developers who are involved and keeping the game fresh or have partnerships that will help it last Let me know if you've tried any games that fit what I described above. I'm open to exploring new projects in my spare time.
    • I'm intrigued by NADA Protocol's vision of integrating blockchain technology into the gaming experience. The prospect of owning and trading in-game items through NFTs adds an exciting dimension to gameplay, offering real rewards and enhancing immersion. The marketplace controlled by the NADA token seems promising, providing a platform for users to engage in trading activities within the gaming ecosystem. I'm optimistic about NADA's potential to carve a niche for itself in the competitive gaming world, especially with its focus on creating a fun and economically rewarding gaming environment. Looking forward to exploring this new gaming frontier!
