Order Ammendments on IG Equities


Recommended Posts

Hi All,
Perhaps I am a bit naive to the process, having dealt with Westpac for many years. But are you aware that IG only seems to ammend pre orders of stock once the market has opened?
The scenario i have is that I had placed a buy order on Z1P (Zip company) for $10.05 (a share) and realized that it was not the right level to have an order trigged. So i amended that to $10.1.
The time I placed the 10.05 order was about 3:46pm AEST and it got put in right away, however I made the amendment to $10.1 around the 4pm to 5pm mark and the system said that the order was updated and processed.
The next day comes around and the market opens and hits a low of 10.06 on the ASK before proceeding up to 10.5+ and continuing. Im sitting there wondering: "Why the heck has my order not filled?". So i am forced to pick up the share at higher price to be in the market (as i expect the price to go to 15/20 in the next few weeks) .

Only later on speaking to the help desk to find out that the orders only seem to process something like 40 minutes after the start of market for normal customers and cuts off 10/15 minutes before the end of market for normal users.
I would expect that the pending order system should be active at least and hour before market starts and stay open at least an hour after the market closes to get clients orders in but turns out im wrong.

Personally I think that this pretty poor.
Wondering if anyone has any more insight on this and information. This wasnt made clear to me when signing up for the service. seems silly to have to pay more for share than you expected especially if price action went there.

    • 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.
