  1. Hi Caseynotes, Thanks for your help. I did what you suggested and this is what I received :- Oder submitted What then happened. Where did I go wrong ?
  2. Thanks again. Yes I think I follow what you suggest. I have tried to find how to do this by looking in the ACADEMY tutorials buy without success unless of course (most likely) I'm looking in the wrong place. I thank you again for your speedy reaction and explanation.
  3. Sorry about that. At the moment I'm using the Demo CFD but I would probably want to use it on the Spread bet if possible. Thanks for your speedy reply.
  4. I just posted a message and stated that I was unable to find the 'net off' and the 'force open'. What I meant to say was how you I use them?
  5. If the price is 5000 and I put a stop at 5010 or 4090, how do I a buy or a sell at the same time at 4090 or 5010. As an added thought, can I repeat this so that as it reaches the stop and the new trade is initiated the new instruction is also initiated. I have been told that IG does give the chance to 'net off' meaning if you are long 5 contracts and you sell 10, you should be left with a net short position of 5 contracts. The have a 'force open' option as well just in case you want to keep long and short position in the same product simultaneously. I am finding this very difficult to understand plus the fact that I can't find 'net off' or the 'force open' on my IG dealing form. I hope you can understand my thinking and would appreciate your help in a way I can understand. Thank you.....CedyB
  6. The price is at 5.000 and I put in a stop or a guarantee stop at 5.010. How do I trade a buy at the same time as the stop at 5.010 is initiated?
  7. How do I get MACD directly onto my chart as opposed to it being under the chart?
  8. Apologies I obviously didn't check it. Yes, both accounts are IG. My objective is to have a joint a/c. I am quite elderly so by having a joint account she can then take it over when I move on to a happier place.
  9. I have written to IB but no reply! My daughter has an active Spread Bet a/c. I have an active CFD a/c. Do I have to change my a/c to a Spread Bet a/c. What do I have to do in understandable steps:- 1. 2. 3.......
  10. Thanks for your speedy reply. If I buy/sell at a price 1.0000, size £1. At what price price would I get a belated margin call. I am trying to find out what the length of that spike (in pips) would have to be relative to the account size and trade size. At the moment I have a Demo a/c and a month ago I inadvertently increased the capital to £999.999.00. As you probably know a few weeks ago there was a larger than normal spike and I wasn't stopped out. This is why I am now trying to understand why.
  11. I am trying to get to grips with stop loss. My account is £2,500. I buy/sell at 1.0000 with no stop loss. I trade at a size of £5. At what point would I be stopped out if there was a large spike? If my trade size was £1 would this be 5 times more?
  12. Can I hold a second Demo account?
  13. I am new to Forex and as yet only have a Demo a/c. I am also wanting to trade on a weekly time frame and possibly monthly. What would the charges be if my trade was in the market for 6 weeks. Also what if I left a monthly time frame in for 6 months.
  14. Thanks James for your speedy reply but I'm not yet into spread betting. I am interested in weekly and monthly trading in the Forex market. Any help would be appreciated.
