Hi, can someone explain this to me.. I have put a 8 lot sell stop order to sell at a certain price and also a take profit to go with that, my trade has sold beyond that yet my pending order was not triggered???
WHY? I am so confused.
also this has happened twice it is as if my orders were deleted but only I have access to my accounts...
I don't know what you mean by
my trade has sold beyond that
but most likely with placing a trade for 8 lots, you don't have enough free margin
Hi, thank you for your comment.
So do you know what the maximum LOT size is on a £4000 account? is it only 1 lot?
It depends on leverage and symbol traded
If trading EURUSD
contract size is 100,000 USD
with 100:1 leverage
you need 1000 USD free margin for 1 lot
Thank you, makes sense now :)
