Corporate action; open offer at 30p.  1 for 4.  If you are short SIG PLC on the basis that the price would drift back to the open offer price I'd reconsider that.  They've just plugged their balance sheet.

Hi, thanks.

I've a Short position which I placed on Friday @ 35.80 with a Stop Loss in place at 37p

I've just managed to get thru to IG for the 1st time in 3 months, but I've been trying for 2 hours.

I've been told my position is Safe and my Stop Loss is in place and it will activate should the position reverse.

I'm lost, I had a buy position at 16, super low. We're miles off it.

 

Nevertheless I don't understand what happened to the position - it's just disappeared altogether from my orders. I can see it in past activity though. Does that mean the position is still open?

 

Also what's the reason for this?

    • https://www.nasdaq.com/articles/when-performance-matters%3A-nasdaq-100-vs.-sp-500-second-quarter-20-2020-07-13 should look similar with GICS - i.e. NDX underweight (vs SPX)to Financials (incl. RE), Energy, Materials and Utilities together roughly 25%... and those went kinda nowhere over the more or less recent past...:     ...of course this is rather superficial, but (together with comparisons posted earlier) suggests really exactly two - closely linked - segments in global asset markets have been trending (up) recent years:  US large cap tech and consumer (incl. Healthcare) stocks.   ...apparently a significant share of all the money printed globally this period  seems to eventually somehow have found its way into these highly concentrated segments...
    • I know relative to some brokers (who are taking the absolute $%&*) IG fx conversion fee of 0.5% is okay, however its still an absolute joke that they and the industry can get away with this flagrant ripping off of customers. I would like to know if IG have any plans to reduce their conversion fee ( trading US stocks in an ISA) to compete with others such as Trading212 who don't charge fx fees at all.... I have a moderate account with substantial turnover, like others I know, I'm now considering transferring my account to 212 as I cant see any justification for such high fx conversion fees now its been shown thats its possible to remove them al together... Perhaps 0.1% to cover costs would be understandable, but 0.5% so 1% round trip on trading any size is ridiculous. I easily give IG thousands, if not tens of thousands a yr in fx fees...
    • Hey,  Unfortunately in Singapore we don't offer a non-leveraged account. We offer these types of accounts to other clients in other countries but not for Singapore.   Apologies for the inconvenience.
