Hi there

 

can anyone advise why there is a small Red Cross next to the company name on my

position companies. The others seem to have a small pen logo?

can I get rid of the Red Cross, if so how?

 

thanks all

Hi, the red cross means the market is closed and no changes can be made to orders. The pencil icon means the market is closed but changes can be made to orders. The green dot means the market is open and any changes can be made.

Hi thanks for responding

the thing is the Red Cross has been there since I bought the shares. It hasn’t gone even after a number of days. All my other positions have a little pen icon..does that mean there are no more shares to be bought from the company or something worse?...

cheers

Thanks for trying to help, I appreciate it.

I think it best to check with IG direct. Don’t want to name names. Suffice to say when you look at the list of your positions and the company’s in the quantity columns they all should have a pen logo. I seem to have just one with a Red Cross. I’ll check with IG direct and post when I get their answer/remedy

Thanks for responding 

I think it best to protect the company In question. I’m sure it’s nothing but just in case................

It may well be a glitch on the IG system so I’m going to get the answer and post again.

Speak soon.

Hi there

To close this off I was advised the Red Cross doesn’t necessarily mean anything.?

For me it appeared at the end of every day alongside the company name, when the markets closed but became a green dot when the markets were open.

As long as the Red Cross isn’t there on open market time it’s nothing to worry about.

Still don’t understand why it’s there at all so maybe it’s not a good sign but IG feel it’s nothing I need to concern myself with.

cheers.

    • 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.
