Having trouble with CFD account

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

This is my first time in an IG live CFD account. I am having trouble with changing my guaranteed stop loss to normal stop loss. 

I have used the demo CFD account for a few weeks and it could easily change it with no problem.

Another problem is that the guaranteed to stop is forcing me to have a huge gap (min displayed).  The share price is $2.13 and stop loss minimum is about $1.044. This is absurd!

I've attached a photo of the problem if someone could please help me. My account is Australia based. 

Thanks,

Hi, the 'Deal' ticket won't make any sense because the market is closed and can't take instant execution 'at market' orders (see there is no spread) . Try the 'Order' ticket instead but there will probably still be a very large guaranteed stop amount due to probably weekend high volatility.

Thanks for your reply,

I have tried Order ticket and US market ticker Amazon which is currently open.  See photo attached

But i am still having the same problem with the huge stop loss minimum and cannot change stop loss to Normal.

I figured that my account status is Limited- Account, hence this is why  i cant change stop loss setting?

How would i resolve this issue, please advise.

Thanks

If you are able/eligible for a normal account the option to switch should be in the My IG dashboard > settings  list.

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF TRADING, where a demo account is never the same. You may want  to see my comments about so called ' Guaranteed stops' on automated trading systems like pro-order.

    • My brain isn't working properly any more
    • I would says so, unless you are dealing with short time frames and large sums of money and you are able to be glued to the screen 100% of the time and give it your full attention.
    • So that's a bearish candle, after an up move that's running out of steam (with small read bodies and long legs), falling back down towards established Fibonacci levels, with a MACD crossing from above 0 and RSI below 50     At one point I had the RSI set to 9, and that additionally gives an overbought divergence (price goes higher but RSI doesn't).  This also gives a nice oversold indication when the move down is coming to an end
