Screenshot_20200623_174216.jpg.261038da4c338b0c40e32e365affcf38.jpgwhy is there a huge spike down on SHELL !! 

 

Did anyone else get this or is it just me!?  It's not on my other 3 share brokers accounts !!!

Thanks for your post. 

Sometimes we get quotes that cause spikes. If no one traded there we don't execute deals off that price. 

If it was a quote but no execution and it makes an anomaly spike our technical team will remove it on the platform shortly after it's happened. 

All the best

Ooooo! So it`s very unstable!

Bitcoin is an unstable cryptocurrency, and it`s hard to make predictions about how it will cost next month or next year... Bitcoin's price is so volatile because of speculation. While it's possible to buy physical goods with Bitcoin in some places, the large majority of Bitcoin transactions are still investment-based. ... This buy-sell cycle is what makes Bitcoin's price so volatile.
Indeed, retail traders tend to buy and sell based on emotion and market hype, which can lead to significant swings in bitcoin's price. Retail traders are small investors that buy and sell bitcoin for their personal accounts. You need an fbs broker, to clarify the situation.

What happen if that spike, not seen in any other broker, cost you a stop triggering? and making a loss?

Many other markets show such kind of spikes, what happen if that spike, not seen in any other broker, cost you a stop triggering? and making a loss?

If the spike is incorrect it will not trigger your stops/ limits.

If for any reason the spike does (which is extremely rare), IG would be able to see this and would reinstate the position. 

All the best

    • 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.
