IS Day Trading feasible on IG ?


Seanogey

Question

I have stopeed using a US Broker and moved to IG.  For Forex and Equity Swing trades the platform seems fine.  However with recent volitility on shares premarket I've tried to trade and the platform dosnt let me trade premarket.   IS ther some option to enable this at an additional cost ?

Even after the bell it is difficult to trade dips without hot keys .  IS there an alternative WIndows based platform with hotkeys available ?

I use ProRealTime, much better  than the web platform in myview. It's a bit 'French' in that nothing is in the obvious place and seems like its old technology that has just been patched up for a decade now  . 

Its clunky but works

Further if you want to day trade on IG, its a hard task. The spreads on SB are just too high and you can only do very liquid stocks FX or commodities, You often  need fast movers / e.g. silver . I found reducing risk / reward down and getting hit rate higher is a better strategy. 

I somethings trade using share dealing account but can only go long, tighter spreads and no leverage but possible to make money. HOWEVER , the FX spread IG charge and if you get an Adverse FX movement, itr can wipe out a potentially profitable trade  

In essence you are looking for big movers, scalping forget it

    • If you had left a limit order based on the previous margin requirement, it's likely the system would've adjusted it to match the new rate once it changed. This helps prevent any unexpected margin calls. However, it's always wise to double-check your orders, especially when there are fluctuations in margin requirements. 
    • Just look at CZ's impact on Binance or Gracy Chen's leadership at Bitget. It's incredible how a visionary leader can propel an organization forward. Gracy Chen's track record speaks for itself – fourfold growth in two years is no small feat! With her at the helm, Bitget could indeed be on track to reach new heights.
    • Hey, have you all heard about this zkLink Nova project? It's supposed to be some next-level technology for Ethereum and Layer 2 networks, and I've been looking into it. I'm telling you, this could be massive! Alright, let me break it down for you. zkLink Nova is like an "Aggregated Layer 3 zkEVM Rollup network" built on top of zkSync's ZK Stack. I know, it sounds super technical, but hear me out. Basically, it's a way to integrate all the liquidity and assets from Ethereum and different Layer 2 rollups into one unified platform. Now, why is that a big deal, you ask? Well, right now, all these networks are like separate islands, you know what I mean? Their assets and liquidity are fragmented, and we have to use questionable bridges to move stuff around. It's a complete mess, and it opens up security risks like crazy. But with zkLink Nova, they're using some fancy zero-knowledge proof magic to let us access the combined liquidity without needing to bridge assets! Can you imagine that? It's like having one massive, happy DeFi playground with all the toys under one roof. No more hopping around networks or dealing with shady bridge protocols. Just pure, unified liquidity and assets at our fingertips. The possibilities for dApp developers with that kind of power are insane! And get this – the zkLink team has already lined up over 60 partners to help steer this Layer 3 ecosystem! We're talking big names like Coinbase Ventures and Arrington Capital, who have already invested a whopping $23M into the zkLink ecosystem's development. I'm telling you, this Nova thing could be a game-changer for the Ethereum and Layer 2 space. It's like they're solving one of the biggest headaches we've had in DeFi with all these incompatible networks. Oh, and here's the kicker – the $ZKL token, which is the native token for the zkLink ecosystem, is now available for premarket trade on Bitget! This could be our chance to get in early on what might become the backbone of a whole new era of DeFi interoperability. But I want to know what you all think. Are you buying into the zkLink Nova hype? Or do you think it's just another overhyped project promising the moon? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
