Can i ask for wall street futures, i can clock in short and long for the same time? and multiple shorts & longs?

Hi, the futures charts are from the arrow and dropdown box next to the name on the wall street cash (spot, dfb) chart.

to enter trades in opposite directions you need to select 'Force Open' on the deal/order ticket.

meaning to say, if first transaction i go for "long" and i decided to keep "long" .. for second transaction i should click force open then go for "short", then i should see 2 opposite contract on my position page right?

yes that's correct. Force open, also known as Hedging mode allows the 2 opposite trades to continue running.

If you select Net off then 2 trades running in the opposite direction will cancel each other out.

If you were sure of market direction and have a long trade open but the market then reversed you could force open a equal sized short trade and with both trades running your PnL would be static, then when the market reversed back up again close out the short hedge position.

For IG platform, all indexes are futures right, are there any actual index for us to spot for play?

Hi, no the DJIA is the underlying market for IG's cash (spot/dfb), the Dow futures are separate markets with different prices (see the alternative Dow charts from the dropdown box next to the Dow name on the chart).

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG
    • DAX/CAC Technical Highlights: DAX reclaimed broken support, but rally still not viewed as bullish CAC 40 has trend-line resistance ahead to watch on further strength   DAX and CAC 40 Technical Outlook: Rally Viewed as Likely to Fail Soon   DAX Daily Chart   DAX Chart by TradingView   The CAC is trading around resistance in the 6k area, with a trend-line from the summer high lying not too far ahead. A turn down could find some initial support in the 5700s, but the low at 5628 is the big level to watch. Broad outlook is of course very similar to the DAX.   CAC Daily Chart   CAC 40 Chart by TradingView   Oct 6, 2022 | DailyFX Paul Robinson, Strategist
