I do not know if I am in the correct forum for my question; I mean here or Shares and ETF's. I am inexperienced when it comes to the purchase of shares. However, I have made about 20 purchases and am making a little profit. I made these purchases before the newer changes came about some purchasing shares. Since then I have been unable to make a new purchase. Before it was very simple; bring up the company click on the present price and click buy. Now this does not seem available. I have tried calling IG quite a few times but was left waiting; perhaps they were too busy. Can any one let me know how to go about making a purchase? Thanks. Larry

Hi, have you gone through the video guides for operating the new platform? They are available from the Help tab top right of the platform screen (see pic below)

    • I call it a wash and rinse - it happens often at swing lows and swing highs, as they are the obvious place for stops to be placed at, the "science" of the markets means that these places are often hit because of what the market HAS to do to move.    
    • No the share dealing account is subject to tax. You will need to make a seperate application for an ISA and it will appear.
    • Hello, my 2 pence worth, On markets like the FTSE it would be good to have an option to switch off the simulated candles, I.e only between 0800 and 1630 being displayed.  The trading out of hours is not for me and I find it quite tiresome having to trawl through the charts of simulated candles. Second pence worth, When IG tv launches it brings up a box over the deal ticket and has on numerous occasions caused me to miss the moment to place trade, Same when a trade is closed due to hitting limits or stop losses. I either have to manually  click on the X to close before I place a trade. Really really frustrating. Apart from this I am happy with IG and the service I have received to date. I am not on IG's payroll lol
