ISA and Share dealing platform trade types with NON SETS stocks





I was considering moving my BARX direct ISA account over since barclays have slowly eroded their BARX direct service from one of the best platforms to one of the worst.  I already have a SB and CFD account so naturally it would be good to move the ISA and maybe the SIPP to have everything under one roof.


Before I made the move I opened the ISA and put some funds in to test the platform.  I thought I was missing something but there was no way of placing a limit order or stop order for non SETS stocks.


All other basic trading platforms offer this service that I've had experience of (III, Barx, Halifax, Natwest).


Why do IG not offer this basic function??

Thanks for your query and welcome to Community. As you said SETSqx stock can't currently have Limit order functionality applied to your trade and you can only use the 'Get Quote' or RSP function. This is unfortunately a restriction made by Citi who act as the transactional broker on the back end. We are pushing for them to get this sorted as soon as possible, however currently there isn't a fixed date on this - as soon as we know I shall try and let you 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.
