So this should be pretty self explanatory. I'm shorting GBPCAD, set up my SL and TP, and I can SEE that the wick passed my limit, regardless of mid/ask/bid, it all PASSED the limit, but my limit did *not* trigger.






Please can I have an explanation ty.

Hi @BigManDave,

It seems that you are referring to Wednesday 29 Sept 2pm. Could you please clarify when was your position open? It seems that after that it hasn't reach the 17090.3.

Thank you for clarifying - Arvin

Okay, my bad, very sorry, you are indeed correct. I was looking at a different timeframe than the one I placed the trade on (15m vs 1hr), so it seems I got confused 😂. Please forgive my mistake.

My limit has since executed and I've received my monies, crisis averted.

I was trying to find the exact time I placed the trade, but it seems this information is not available on the mobile app? Or at least I cannot find it. (And also other functionality is missing, like changing the funds in your demo account: I can add funds, but can't reduce them.)

Eventually found it in Past activity History on the web platform, (1722) but was hoping that if I clicked on it, it would be able to show me the past trade on the actual chart, which would be very cool.


Apart from that, all is well. 

Thanks, and again apologies for my mistake.

    • 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.
