Trading Italian instruments not possible?


Recommended Posts

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.

    • Hi  For those interested in the Video Gaming industry we recently interviewed the product manager for VanEck Video Gaming & Esports ETF to talk about how the industry will perform as lockdown measures start to ease and what is fueling future growth https://blubrry.com/igtradingthemarkets/74972956/how-investors-can-profit-from-the-growing-video-gaming-and-esports-industry/   Are there any other exciting sectors you would like to see covered on the podcast by an industry expert?
    • Yes I am aware that I have selected the guaranteed stop level as I have been for a while in preparation for when the live account is approved, the live account will have to use a guaranteed stop on each trade, which I think is a good idea as it reduces exposure to risk and the margin required as it is a controlled risk as apposed to an uncapped or un controlled risk. Normally the stop limit on this trade is a minimum of 8 points, in this screen shot it it is set at 30 points which has increased the required margin to $1775, when it is at 8 or 10 the margin would be around $1300. If I set the stop to 139 points the margin will increase to $17,000 or more, obviously blocking the trade with a $10,000 account fund. Thank you for your suggestion,  however it isn't because I have selected a guaranteed stop as I normally do. having given this some thought, I guess if there is excessive price volatility / uncertainty, as there is when the price is at 1.39000 the system sets the GSL very high for protection, the price could easily run away, that being said if it was hit at 139 it would lead to a massive loss, maybe $7000.
