Spread is more than amount indicated

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm trying to find out why the spread indicated is much more than when I open position. 

I bought 1 Bitcoin ($1) going short with current spread of 36 but as soon as I enter the position  my profit is already down by extra $30, so total amount of around minus $66

For example if I entered a position at 7,134 and exit at same price at 7134 I am suppose to be minus $36 but instead I am minus $66 dollars almost double the spread.

I am using RealTimePro and the position entered on the chart looks right to me but on the Scalping Order Book it's showing that extra 30 pips and Open Positions display showing the same thing.

Anyone know why?

Thanks in advance.

    • I call it a wash and rinse - it happens often at swing lows and swing highs, as they are the obvious place for stops to be placed at, the "science" of the markets means that these places are often hit because of what the market HAS to do to move.

    • Hello, my 2 pence worth, On markets like the FTSE it would be good to have an option to switch off the simulated candles, I.e only between 0800 and 1630 being displayed.  The trading out of hours is not for me and I find it quite tiresome having to trawl through the charts of simulated candles. Second pence worth, When IG tv launches it brings up a box over the deal ticket and has on numerous occasions caused me to miss the moment to place trade, Same when a trade is closed due to hitting limits or stop losses. I either have to manually  click on the X to close before I place a trade. Really really frustrating. Apart from this I am happy with IG and the service I have received to date. I am not on IG's payroll lol
