  1. Hello all, This week has been frustrating. Before market open, the information given regarding the previous day of trading is that in graphical form and the prices in the boxes. Quite often, the BUY price in the box and the BUY price on the graph are different, which makes placing an order to open a position at market open confusing. Which price should I use for my price level in my order? Twice this week my order hasn't opened because I have used the wrong price.
  2. Take Carnival (LSE) for example, the price it closed at yesterday in the box was 919 for buy. However, the graph showed the price ending at 936. Having faith in the box, I placed a buy order at 919, but the position never opened. The stock opened at 930, leaving my position closed. I am wondering whether to trust the box or the graph since other orders have been true to the price in the box. Is there an indicator that I can look out for?
  3. Hello All, I'm back again with another question, since last time I asked I was pleasantly surprised at the promptness and informative nature of the response I received. I have been placing orders to open a position immediately when the order opens the next day at the close price the day before. I have selected the correct price level: eg buy at the buy price in the box and sell at the sell. Furthermore, the order was accepted so that rules out any shortage in positions to borrow from a broker as the answer. I know this is possible because I have done it many times before. So, I was wondering why the order did not place today? Cheers,

  5. Can anyone answer this question? I went to short a stock this morning at a price per point that saw the margin within my balance but after clicking place deal the website prevented my opening and showed me an error. The error was fleeting so I struggled to read it before it had disappeared but I think it said something regarding a lack of short positions and to call a brokerage? This error cost me £200 in profits so I was wondering how I can avoid this in the future. Cheers
