Big brokers share price hit seems mainly centred on the on the data that most lose playing the forex (rather than the decreasing of leverage) but this is not really news, minimal research would have disclosed this to any newbie. That is why, repeated over and over on the forum is stressed the need for tight risk management, low leverage and to just concentrate on survival for the first few years.

 

Not what anyone wants to hear. They prefer ‘with a bit of luck I can get rich quick’ scenario. But luck doesn’t come into it if you are going to be making hundreds of trades over a long period of time, probability is the play, not luck. Reading ‘Spread betting for Dummies’ over the weekend then steaming in with big leverage will probably put you in the 80% who lose. Those instagram and myfxbook posts showing massive percentage gains per trade must mean they are using massive leverage, they cannot withstand even a small string of losers, unless it’s a demo account, then they just reset.

 

Big broker share price should bounce, not a dead cat bounce because the big brokers will pick up business from the small firms who will be hit the hardest.

Absolutely Casey, if the media, or places like CNBC or Bloomberg try to say to the novice investor that somehow stocks and share are a safer "bet" just look at the chinese crash back in 2015 and its mining shares, i myself had diversified my portfolio, but still had some terrible under performers, but that is how it goes but i understood my product. With leverage derivatives you must understand the product and use very good risk management, therefore not placing such huge positions with a small account and if you where using a long only position of a particular stock, dont put all your eggs in one basket, not much different.

I am not a fan of regulation, but if this benefits clients and the industry together then i think the majority will be glad.

    • Hey @Kkr76,  I hope you're well.  Firstly the transfer would be between Share dealing to share dealing account. Not share dealing to ISA. I will go through the steps you can take to do that after the steps below on how to get your shares to IG.  So with share dealing transfer you can do on by opening an account with IG. Once opened you can fill our our transfer form by selections MyIG> Live accounts> Change 'Account you're viewing' to share dealing> Transfer. Follow the steps from there. Transfers take around 4-6 weeks depending on how cooperative Halifax is.  Share dealing to ISA transfer We can't make transfers from a share dealing to an ISA account so once we have the shares in the share dealing account you have 2 options:  Option 1: Sell the shared on your Share dealing account, wait for the funds to settle 2/3 working days, move the money to your ISA, buy the share back  Option 2: You can transfer shares from your share dealing account to ISA via the Bed & ISA process, which involves selling the shares and repurchase them on the ISA account. This process can be done over the phone with one of our dealers. It'll cost £40 in commission per line of stock to sell the shares on share dealing account but free of charge to repurchase on the ISA. There will also be spread costs which is capped to roughly £30 per line of stock, however, this is generally cheaper for the majority of stocks.   If you have any other questions let me know by quoting my comment or putting @CharlotteIG
    • I spent Friday re-adding the stop losses and today when I have gone onto the new platform all my working orders were once again set to -NaN.  I followed alex9686 and just re-entered the values manually and they seem to have set. But its very worrying that it keeps deleting the quantities on my working orders and makes we worry that the stop losses are totally useless and can't be relied on?  Can anyone from IG offer some advice please. 
    • Hey,  The US line is available on the share trading account:  You can find the available to trade time zones in the get info section.  Let me know if you need anything else.  All the best
