Query: Dear Sir/Mdm.

I have been day trading for some time and I have recently opened a demo account with IG Trading. I find the IG platform very user-friendly and informative and am accordingly thinking of opening a Live Account. To this end, please assist me with the following queries: 1. I have been trading the ALSI Futures on the JSE. Where do I find this on the IG-platform? I suspect it’s the “South Africa 40 (R 10)”? 2. If well, I note that trading continues on that account outside the normal JSE trading hours. Please explain this to me. is this is only a feature of the Demo-account? Regards Schalk Marais (tel -  +27837004474, email - schalk@ppmlaw.co.za)

    • Hi, I'm also new, have been lurking here for years, so welcome  Most markets are closed during the weekend, but there are weekend contracts on major indices. For crypto, it trades 24/7 like everywhere else, but there is a window form 11pm-12pm UTC on Friday where it is closed as well. Might be for maintenance of the platform.  Hope this helps!

    • CFD stands for contract for difference. A CFD account allows you to take the profit or loss between a buy and sell position (or vice versa if you are short) across a number of different instruments, including shares, forex, commodities and bonds. This means you do not actually purchase the shares, and thus do not pay capital gains tax or stamp duty. All the shares listed under the live accounts are also listed under the demo accounts. That means if the share is not listed under the demo, it also will not be listed under the live account. However, the share you mentioned, NAOV, seems to be listed under the CFD account on my live and demo CFD account, so I am not quite sure what the problem is. I have attached a screenshot below of the ticker.
