margins spread is too high for shares

Recommended Posts

The spread that IG is taking is too high esp on Shares like Blue Prism - just not great platform

It probably is for scalping or inter-minute trades but there are plenty of good swing trading opportunities.

I agree, the spreads are too wide.   Is there a better platform out there?

IG used to brag about minimal spreads. Gold and Oil can be  up to 6.

that market isn't open so the data won't be right, check the time of the last H1 candle on the chart.

New trick from IG.

Notice that new this month.

When client deal with "All session" shares / US, they use huge floating spread before/after markets hours.

The normal are 2pps, not a 60pps, not a 100pps, or higher.

Sadly, the client can burn a lot of cash, because  huge floating spread before/after markets hours  ... but IG takes commissions for sure! 

Comparing that with other CFD where have open "All session" shares / US - IG leads with tricks!

This new policy not very pleasant!

Anyone met that too?

Thank you :)

"Kill the goose, new one coming!"

    • Financial Anarchy: one of the main fallacies of Bitcoin. You are that independent holding bitcoin that anytime you want to buy it or sell it have to go through an exchange using your full identity. With all sort of passports and ids checks. Let's not forget that the main goal of many bitcoiners is to amass as much of the correlated fiat currency as possible. With the romantic topic of becoming a blade runner paying in SHA-256 hashes to other elite individuals you watch how your virtual coins grow in value, that value that is established in that so-hated fiat currency. The happiness of a bitcoiner comes with the grow in price of that coin in the exchange. The more coins of the fiat currency they get from their bitcoins the happier they are. So it is all cyberpunk literature with a bit of TAZ philosophy, but bitcoin is no more than a very volatile "financial product", unfortunately , and since I am surrounded in IT departments by bitcoiners I am so tired of listening to people excusing themselves for choosing this overhyped movement over any other FX pair or metal. I understand that people want to get rich quickly and that is why they chose bitcoin, but they want to get rich by grabbing more and more of that fiat currency that they hold in the bank accounts. So let's be honest with ourselves, let's cut the rubbish and call it like it is: Greed on a very volatile market.  
    • The Fed wants to ban it or tax it. No central government likes crypto as its a form of financial anarchy. 
    • Very good point, Casey. They see Bitcoin and want to emulate it, or in the case of the Fed try and ban it. Bitcoin and Crypto have DEMAND. A Euro backed or $ backed crypto may not have them same demand, but will also be seen as currency. Crypto's lack of provenance (political and geographic) is a major USP. The market normally wins as governments know too well.
