GME & AMC - Supporting the Hedge Funds ?


Recommended Posts

I would like to pose a very simple question to IG. Whilst increasing margins to 100% on shares like GME & AMC, due to volatility, is understandable, how does restricting buys or share purchases help anyone but the hedge funds currently losing money? By restricting new purchases, existing shareholders (which does not include me) are clearly being encouraged to sell and cannot buy, which will ultimately result in the share price cratering. Am I missing something or is this an example of market manipulation ?

The main difference between CFD trading and share trading is when you trade a CFD you don't own the underlying share.

Therefore based on the above statement no intermediary has sold anything...

IG - can you explain why we can no longer deal CFD's in certain stock? I for one will be closing my account once my open positions are closed.

    • IG's "Trade of the Week" video (26-Apr) suggested going LONG on GBPCAD. After I'd put on a small position I read your post on CAD strength. I wished I'd seen your post first  I was stopped out within a few days.
    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........
