Trading Italian instruments not possible?

Hi, on my account I can't trade Italian instruments, is this normal? The only exception is the FTSE MIB 40 index. 

As IG has a presence in Italy I find this surprising. What gives?

Hi, IG limits on types of exchanges as well as market caps of companies they list but you can always ask here on the forum or via the helpdesk by name of company for consideration to be included on the platform.

Hi Casey, i notice that IG has a presence in Italy, IG Italia. 

So I don't really understand why I can't see/trade Italian stocks especially when a) you used to be able to trade Italian stocks on IG and b) ìyou can trade French and German, belgian, dutch, irish, swedish instruments. I can even trade Spanish and Portuguese stocks. 

So why not Italy? Piaggio, Ferrari, Giorgio Armani, Fiat, Generali..hardly small potatoes 

 

cheers

Hi, I don't know about the Italian exchange but there are some exchanges that IG can't trade on because of the way they operate digitally. Also will depend on if share dealing or cfd trading and many large companies are listed on multiple exchanges so trading may take place there. And some companies are not listed simply because of a lack of IG client interest.

Best bet is to email a request to the helpdesk or tag IG here on the forum eg @CharlotteIG and ask if particular companies could be included on which ever platform you were looking to trade them on.

    • Does anybody know the BIL (SPDR Bloomberg 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF) equivalent with a GBP currency hedge? I want the interest yield but I don't want the currency risk.
    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
