  1. Today
  2. Could the Easter weekend bring a bumper dose of price action for Bitcoin et al? Prices are looking solid going into this long weekend including Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday. There could be a lot of interesting price action. Some of the best gains can come when one least expects. I suppose the same is true of the reverse in terms of losses!
  3. I thought this article was rather relevant to this thread. EU sugar rises as regional market tightens, world prices languish https://www.independent.ie/business/farming/tillage/eu-sugar-rises-as-regional-market-tightens-world-prices-languish-37992854.html The last paragraph in the article is rather interesting from a 'Fundamental Perspective'. Analysts expect the global sugar market to record a deficit of 1.9 million tonnes in 2019/20, but following years of surplus, stockpiles are plentiful, keeping prices stubbornly range-bound near decade lows.
  4. Thanks. I have been looking for something like this.
  5. I would also like to hear more about options, it isn't very well explained (hence I am thinking it is aimed at professionals only) and I don't understand the approach IG takes of demanding that you spread bet on options since surely the only reason people go for options in the first place (vs SB or CFD) is to limit losses to the premium. The available options are woefully inadequate and there's no way to take out stock options except to phone the dealing desk apparently. It all seems like it's totally closed off from individual investors.
  6. Hello, selling daily options is a good strategy to gain? What are your opinions? Many Thanks
  7. Hi there Has anyone ever had his available funds delayed I sold Debenhams shares last Monday before they were suspended and my account value shows an amount but it doesn't reflect on my available funds. I believe that settlemt date is T+3 max and could be delayed but how long could this take. Many thanks
  8. Hi @John_W124, if you are with IG Australia the link to the info page on transferring shares is here; https://www.ig.com/au/transfer-shares-to-ig
  9. Are the 'Whales' going to continue swimming with the tide? 🐟 🦈 🐋🏊‍♂️
  10. You are right, it is now fixed, thanks for your comment
  11. Hi, I own some Australian shares but they were not bought via my IG account. I have the ISN number etc and all the details. How do I load them into my portfolios so that I can sell them please? Thanks
  12. ok @ckc, I think you're right, there seems to be a disconnect in the dollar value input box, maybe @JamesIG, can check up.
  13. Thks for the response. I opened a IG-Demo account followed the steps . The first 2 screenshot showed the response from IG Terminal Client that the account with $100,000 has been created. The last screenshot showed that the balance in the account created is $10,000 only (strange. maybe a bug).
  14. Interesting new stock screening site, over 5500 common stocks listed. Click on Screener tab then 'advanced mode' tab for very long list of indicators to add. Also has some interesting themed pre-set screeners. https://stockrow.com/
  15. @OptionsTrader, Just checked it now and it seems to be fine!
  16. Some stats for Easter Thursday % gain/loss since 2002. dax, stoxx, Ger bonds, euro, es and keep an eye on oil in the US session.
  17. Just to point out you need to be logged in to get the full page including the sentiment data.
  18. Some assets such as ETFs are not UCITS eligible which means you are unable to purchase in your ISA. Which asset are you looking at? Furthermore you need to make sure you have complete the W8BEN form which is available in MyIG under 'Settings'.
  19. Yup You should be able to get this for every market on that Market Analysis page.
  20. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I've passed this onto our technical support team who will look to manually correct.
  21. @KatherineIG, Have a look at the thread which I set up a few weeks ago by clicking on the link below. https://community.ig.com/forums/topic/6508-lean-hogs-price-breakout-by-trendfollower/?tab=comments#comment-28817 You may find this both interesting and relevant to your piece posted today.
  22. The African swine fever disease has reached Southeast Asia and parts of Europe, including the world’s biggest producer of Pork, China. A prediction from the Japanese bank Nomura, is that this could cause prices to rise by 78% in China by 2020, to 33 yuan per kilogram from 18.5 yuan Senior US and China officials to organise more face-to-face trade talks, aiming to reach a deal by early May and to sign at the end of that month North Korea claims it has test-fired a new weapon with a ‘powerful warhead’, its first test since Kim Jong-Un and Donald Trump’s talks which ended without an agreement Pinterest, expected to start trading on the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday, announced its IPO at $19 a share, higher than its original price range between $15 and $17.

Chinese markets also fell, but the Aussie rose after the Australian economy added more jobs than forecast in March.

  23. Hi The USD/DKK is showing a big candle going all the way to ZERO: Is this ok?
  24. https://www.ig.com/uk/marketanalysis/ig-commodities/carbon-emissions I had not noticed this before but under client sentiment it shows a range of how many IG clients have open positions in Carbon Emissions. Maybe it was there before but I had never seen it.
  25. I think any bad news released by the media could trigger some serious selling. If good news is released by the media then new highs could be made and a new future created by the price action of the Dow, S&P and Nasdaq.
  26. Gold's price action is very negative. This is an ideal scenario for shorting it in a short term basis. I think Gold will have further to fall. I include a chart below for illustrate this point. I do not envisage Gold going below $1200 but there is the risk of it falling below $1250. This could attract a new wave of buying pressure due to traders and investors thinking they are getting good value.
