Closing Deals Only

Recommended Posts

I found this wrong message when I want to buy some of the Shares. Closing Deals Only!! And the description is "You can only place an order to close the deal in this market". However, it doesn't matter how much you offer even if you want to buy 10% higher it will not work and get same message. It means that you couldn't buy some of the Shares in IG platform and just confuse us by wrong messaging instead of simply tell this Share is not available ! 

It is asking for further help please call Help desk that never works. I wait 2 days at least 30 min. and listen repeated voice ….. and nobody pick the phone and help you.

It's pretty bad, from what I've worked out it's basically all the top gainers, ie all the stocks you would want to trade and I think it's because IG act slightly differently in that any gain from traders comes out of their pockets so they're trying to protect themselves against any large gains you might have from volatile stocks.

What I don't understand on the SB platform is that you get the same message, but there are prices quoted for various futures contracts. I suspect but I maybe wrong that these are reserved for professional clients

I agree that its very frustrating trying to get through to ask the question and I have not seen anything in their training documentation / courses with the meaning of this

Surely the big advantage of SB is the lack of capital gains tax, and yet you are limited with what you can trade on

Very poor in my opinion

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
