Trying To Trade The "DAX" - Why do i get this message?? ...

Recommended Posts

Hi   Presumably you are trying to put in a stop loss order or trying to move an existing stop loss order. The minimum distance changes with volatility throughout the day and so far this morning the Dax minimum stop has swung between 10, 15 and 30 points on the new platform. If you are using the MT4 platform you are dealing in lots rather than pounds per point so £1 per point on the IG platform  becomes 0.1 lots and 10,15, 30 points becomes 100, 150, and 300, so 300 equates 30 points on MT4. On both platforms you can use the minimum level then tighten it often just a few minutes later and you are still able to close the trade manually at any point no matter where the stop.

I was just trying to put the same trade on - exactly as i do most days of the week

This particular day it said i couldnt trade as the "buy or sell price"

(I cannot remember whether i was buying or selling this particular day)

Whichevever i was trying to do - It was too near that level in the market already

and that it had to be a mimimum of 300 points away

"Which Is Not True!!"

I get an error message "ORDER LEVEL TO CLOSE TO MARKET LEVEL" when trying to place limit orders.  I can understand for STOP orders but this makes no sense for limit orders.  Does anyone have more info on this order placement restriction?

    • 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.
