You are crazier that I thought :D

Going through every single post I posted to mark it with a sad face is a move that I wasn't expecting. How old are you? fifteen? 

Just for your information, I never ever marked any of your posts. I simply don't do that. The only move I do is to like it if I do, but there is no way I will select any of those stupid faces to mark a post. Seriously, someone is playing with you big time. 

I don't care if you keep doing this childish thing, it makes me laugh so you can carry on. Just think about that I am showing myself plainly with every move, and if I don't like something I will tell you straight away with a message, there is no way I am going to add a sad face to a post.

You have pissed off so many people that now they are playing with you. Well deserved because you are a w4nker, but Detective don't attack the wrong person because that will hurt you even more.

I wonder if an extension can monitor you keystrokes while you're trading?  Scary stuff guys

Remember this is a largely unmoderated forum that lets you post attachments in BAT format (which is a kind of file that executes commands on a Windows system) so don't trust a f*king thing.  BE SAFE - the guys on here are NOT here to help you.

Anyone that knows a little bit of JavaScript can see that the script is just going through the DOM images and hides the section that are included into.

"keystrokes" "hacking" :D  :D :D :D :D :D :D 

You are funny after all.

I DO know a "bit" about Javascript. And it's entirely possible for an extension to log keystrokes, and mouse movements (look at services like Hotjar & CrazyEgg & Grammarly that have built entire businesses around Javascript doing this on people's websites/browsers). It's also possible for a script to trigger both keystrokes and clicks on your behalf too.

And while a script might not currently do it, extensions and remote scripts can change/"update" at anytime (and web browsers don't even alert you of the updates (or the changes in them)). Even if the code is open-source on GitHub - it's often the case that it's not downloaded from there and the version in the Extension/PlayStore may have had modifications/additions done to it (legitimately [usage tracking] or illegitimately [keytracking/session scrapping]).

If you don't entirely trust the developer/business who created a browser extension - don't install it.

If you know about Javascript just review the code and you will see that is completely harmless. 

If you see any danger on it you have seen too many hacker movies.

Someone that does know about Javascript does not write a post like you do, they simply check the code and know what is doing.

Please post the code and I'll review it.

It is posted already , you are posting in the wrong post. This post is just nonsense from beginning to the end. Check my profile , you will see it there

I see it now. Great script, but I think you'll find most people will want to be using it to block you for being a confrontational hot-head that's too quick to respond with a put down than add value to this community.

var users = ['jlz'];

They are free to use it that way if they wish so, No problem.

You are the one that is calling others hot-head.

    • Hey @pravid17 I hope you're well.  In the leveraged trading industry there are brokers who don't hedge client's exposure and brokers (like ourselves) who do hedge client's exposure.  In a perfect world the exposure of short clients would net off the trades of long clients however this is not always the case. Our hedging model allows us to take an exposure in the underlying market for the remaining exposure which doesn't offset - This way we don't need to hedge every trade, worry about profits of our clients and results in lower costs for hedging in the underlying market (commissions, interest etc.). So say 60% of IG customer exposure in the ASX was long and 40% of exposure on the ASX was short. The 40% would net each other off but there's a remaining 20% of customers who need to be hedged to cover their positions. We go into the market and hedge this.  We make our money primarily through our spreads and overnight funding  with other fees making up a small proportion of our revenue. I would like to remind also that IG is regulated by several bodies globally, including top-tier regulators like the UK's FCA, Germany's BaFIN, Australia's ASIC - This should be quite reassuring from a dealing execution and transparency perspective.  I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other question 
    • A survey from Reviews.org, which featured 1000 Americans, found that as many as 1 in 4 US subscribers may quit the service in the next year.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 23 September 2022  There was an interesting breakdown, but the main reason was affordability. Only 18% said they would move to a cheaper competitor. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the numbers. Netflix subscription woes Netflix Inc (All Sessions) could be in for a rough time ahead over the next 12 months if a new survey is anything to go by, which was conducted in the US. Out of the 1,000 adults that took part in this survey undertaken by Reviews.org, around 25% of those that were covered said that they would be cancelling their Netflix subscription within the next 12 months. Now, it says with that 25% of US subscribers to Netflix considering leaving, not to join a competitor, but mostly because of pressures on household bills. This is how it is split: rising cost of subscriptions - 40% inflation - 20% a lack of content - 22% spending more time on the services of others - 18% So you can see, a minority said they were going to other services, such as those provided by Disney Plus or Amazon Prime. The cost of Netflix has risen dramatically this year as its basic plan increased by 11% in January and its other plans by 20% to 25%. Now these were the first price increases for three years, so that itself is relatively new for a lot of subscribers. Netflix share price Let's take a look at the Netflix share price. You can see on the far left hand side of this chart the COVID lows at $290.39. We saw a whacking great increase there of 141% to the top and the record high in Netflix shares back in November 2021. And that was when subscriptions were rising, people were paying more for their services, and it was all humming beautifully. And then all of a sudden people started questioning the numbers of streaming services they were undertaking with some deciding to withdraw from Netflix. All of a sudden the big drops started coming through with profit warnings and sales warnings. We've recently hit a new low of $162.50. Since then there has been a little bit of an increase. We're currently trading at $232.75, but we are down by a margin of 1.75% in today's session, which reflects this news that we could well see a relatively large drop in subscribers for Netflix in the US within the next 12 months.
    • Market data to trade the week of 26 September: Nasdaq; NXT From the economic calendar next week IG technical analyst, Axel Rudolph, picks up on a short trade on the Nasdaq around US inflation data. Meanwhile, despite another light week of corporate data, Axel picks out the chart of Next plc (NXT) as an interesting trade to think about.
