IG and it's random decisions to let you trade


Recommended Posts

Not a day goes by where I am not left perplexed and on the hold for 30-45mins due to IG giving random reasons for not accepting trades, to the point where I feel they are unable to make markets or wilfully do not accept.  

Latest when trying to buy Novavax - "Order too far from last traded price". Odd as a) buy price is exactly the same. b) tried buying the stock for higher than the current share price - still rejected, in fact rejected at any price. 

Surprised if IG will still be here when RH comes to the UK. Utterly devoid of anything redeemable. Anyone know why this might be?

I had the same problem a week ago trying to sell 320 Avon Rubber shares but it would let me sell in blocks of 100 which incurred several times more transaction fees. Strange but it would let me purchase 320 in one block!

 

Tried the phone line but was on hold for over an hour and gave up, not the way to run a business and may go back to HL.

    • Oh, so underlying conditions are significant now we have the vaccines, ''98% of ALL COVID-19 deaths in English hospitals were people with underlying conditions. The evening standard is trying to defend the vaccine by saying that the people who died with two doses had underlying health issues. See the problem?'' datatosee.com  @dontbetyet     MEANWHILE, - What? ''WHOA!! 73% *HIGHER* death rate in this vaccinated UK cohort compared to the unvaccinated (19/9344 vs 23/19573, p=0.07). Pause. We need more transparency on this data, not more politics with people ... misrepresenting the data.''  Dr Ah Kahn Syed @arkmedic   Also meanwhile, ''Pandemrix was pulled for causing narcolepsy in 20 in a million doses. The crude reporting rate for myocarditis is 35 per million doses for 16-17 year olds [covid vaccines] ''  Dr Clare Craig @ClareCraigPath  (Chart taken from FDA video below).        .
    • UK following the US in rewriting the rules for testing and counting the Chinese virus. Before vaccines every thing possible was done to inflate the numbers, post vaccine rollout now new rules to deflate the numbers. ''NEW: Hospitals have been told to differentiate between those actually sick with coronavirus and those who test positive while seeking treatment for something else. The move will reduce the official numbers in hospital for coronavirus Via @Independent.''  @PoliticsForAlI   Meanwhile Ferguson's fake models finally getting the sort of attention they deserve. Matt Ridley  @mattwridley: ''I was misled by Prof Neil Ferguson at a select committee hearing.'' 'Researchers at Uppsala University adapted the ICL model and on 30 April estimated that, without mitigation, Sweden’s Covid deaths would hit 96,000 by the end of May. The actual number on 1 June was just 4,403. Questioned about the disparity by Matt Ridley in the House of Lords on 2 June, Ferguson insisted: ‘they did not use our model, they didn’t adapt our model’ and ‘We had no role in parameterising it’. ICL itself tweeted sniffily on 6 May, ‘Professor Ferguson and the Imperial Covid-19 response team never estimated 40,000 or 100,000 Swedish deaths’.  In fact ICL did and the Excel spreadsheet they produced showing just that is still up on the internet for all to see. So what about Sweden, huh? | The Spectator Australia   Also,   .
    • probably missing the point, but I don't get the growth stocks (QQQ) short to hedge against correction in cyclical commodities, sorry.  NDX went nowhere since mid Feb, while oil is up 20% or so.  That doesn't mean tech is cheap, nor that QQQ would rise (again...) when cyclicals crash.  but hasn't the narrative been reflation-rotation for a while...?  if that simply unwinds - QQQ obviously will outperform.  on the other hand, in case of a general risk-off, with multiple compression in the center, you'll do very well.  Personally, I see too much risk of NDX catching up first.  next week expiry date - not that I would have much data on these things, but wouldn't be the first time that range breakouts come just in time, almost like manipulationgic...
