Buy order not appearing as working order



Hi, I placed a buy order Stride Gaming PLC in my ISA account. Under activity I see two rows, labelled as order and placing. But under Working Orders I see nothing.


So what happened, would this be filled if the buy price fell to an appropriate level? And if so, how would I cancel this order if I changed my mind?


This will hopefully show what I mean.

Hi , thanks for getting in touch!


When an order is successfully placed from your ISA account, it will always appear in the Working Orders window of your platform. If this is not the case, it implies there is likely an issue with the order itself.


In this particular instance, Stride Gaming PLC is a SETSqx stock. This is a stock which generally trades lower volumes than major listings and therefore trades with the assistance of liquidity providers known as Market Makers. At the moment, the order type you selected ('Limit - Day') is not supported for this particular type of stock and will have therefore been deleted immediately.


The way to trade this stock on the platform will be via the 'Get Quote' function. This is a separate tab on the deal ticket and will send a request directly to the Market Maker, who will return a quoted price to you to either accept or reject. If this deal is accepted, the stock will appear on your account immediately at the quoted price.


Hope that explains the situation! Please feel free to reply with any further questions and if anybody else has experienced similar issues, please let me know.

    • 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.
