Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. You could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage.

Why has my position closed unexpectedly?

If your position has been closed unexpectedly, please double-check to see if your stop-loss or take-profits have been hit by referencing against an IG chart.

We don’t display the buy (ask) and sell (bid) prices simultaneously, so you may need to edit your chart to display the correct reference price. Bring up the chart, right click, and make sure the chart is quoting the correct bid or ask to correctly correspond with your trade.
