What are partial fills and points through current?

‘Partial fills’ and ‘points through current’ are advanced order types, which you can turn on or off in the ‘settings’ area of the platform.

To view them on the deal ticket:

  1. Log into My IG and open the platform
  2. Select ‘settings’ from the left-hand flyout menu
  3. Turn on the ‘show price & fill options in deal ticket’ toggle

Partial fills

Selecting partial fills can help to increase the chance that your trade will be successfully executed, when you’re trading in larger sizes. If you trade in a size so large that we can’t fill your entire order, rather than reject it outright, we’ll fill your order in the maximum size possible. We’ll only ever partially fill your order as an alternative to an outright rejection.

Partial fills are a default setting on the IG platform. To change this:

  1. Log in to My IG and open the platform
  2. Click on ‘settings’ in the left-hand side menu
  3. Unselect the ‘partial fill' checkbox

Points through current

Points through current minimises the chance of a price rejection due to volatile markets. If the market changes suddenly as you click to deal, we’ll still place your order if the market price is within the tolerance (the number of points through the current price) that you specify.

Points through current is not a default order type, so you’ll have to manually select it:

  1. Log in to My IG and open the platform
  2. Click on ‘settings’ in the left-hand flyout menu
  3. Open the order type drop-down menu
  4. Select ‘Pts through current’
Once you have selected to show price options in the deal ticket, and chosen ‘Pts through current’, you will be able to set your tolerance level in the deal ticket. We’ll always remember your last points through current value per market, to speed up your dealing process.
