Thanks for the info. Currently I can still close a partial position manually on the classic CFD platform and your post explains the other options. Once the CFD platform is released, we can assume that it will have similar functionality.
The only other thing that I would like to know is, will closing a partial position ever be available on ProRealTime? I personally trade on ProRealTime charts both for spread bets and CFDs and this functionality would be especially useful for day trading. Although I can open a position on PRT, if I want to partially close it out manually, I have to have the IG platform open as well on a separate screen and open a ticket on that to close the position out partially.
If this can be made available on PRT, I would not have to refer to the IG patform at all to trade. This is not such an issue with swing trades, but for day trading, this can make a difference if the market moves quickly against you.
