I have weekend trading switched off.
It’s 6.30am and pre markets are closed.
I’ve placed an order over the weekend to buy apple at 282.86 on the virtual CFD account. I checked this morning and the BUY price has changed to 283.74…where is this data coming from ? Markets are closed.
Yahoo finance which reports premarket is not showing anything like it.
How can a price change over the weekend and be also not in line with what the tickers report out there ?
Please help me understand.
Now market has opened and looking at the chart. Marked closed as expected Friday at 21.59… then re-opened at 9am and low.
So where is that 283.xx price coming from over the weekend ? It should have never moved from that 282.2X… Again my weekend trading options are OFF.
@dropbrick, thanks for reaching out!
Are you experiencing this with a demo or a real-money account?
Hi, it’s the demo account.
This is a superficial bug with our demo environment when weekend trading is off. It’s only visual and does not affect order execution.
Basically what happens is that you get the last “fake/weekend” price even though you’ve disabled it for your account.
It’s on our todo list and we’ll squash it soon enough!
So the real CFD won’t show that. Price will stay still when post market closes if Weekend trading is off, correct ?
Absolutely. It’s a disabled-weekend-trading and demo-only and visual-only issue.
