  1. 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. Thanks
  2. ...And just to clarify, this post is with regard to both Spread betting and CFD accounts.
  3. Hi, I know that there has been a post 'Partial close limit orders', but to be honest after the answer given there, I still wouldn't know how to partially close a position by opening a new order. In fact when I spoke to the IG helpdesk this week, I was told that it isn't possible to partially close a position on either the new platform or the 'classic' platform via an order. Is this possible or not and could this feature be added? Also, on the 'classic' platform you can currently close out a partial positions by just editing the amount on the ticket, which is great. Is there currently a way to do this on the new platform as it appears that you can only close out the whole position manually and cannot edit it? Thanks
