''According to a post by one of the administrators on the IG Community Forum, clients have been asked to close all their open spread bet and/or CFD positions on cryptocurrencies by no later than 3 pm on Wednesday 24 March 2021. After the mentioned date, the company will close open positions based on prevailing bid/ask prices.''

Hi Caseynotes, (I often read you posts)

Yes I did see it about this morning  or so after announcement I believe - and responded to a newbie on the subject. 

Personally it was inevitable (IMHO) cos the way trades have been going - it was and is a one way ticket to profits on a put/call. Certainly dipped from 59k (BTC) to 54k but I personally think it is responsible by IG - as potentially it could wipe them out (or am I being plain ignorant?). As they are only market makers HOWEVER they are making a fair chunk on the sell price buy prices AND interest per day. Still not complaining though!

Worth noting too that after ESMA ramped up margin on crypto they have been making a lot of noise about the need to protect retail and recently have taken a big interest in Robinhood and social media and how it all affects trading in companies such as seen in GameStop.

Hi,

Fortunately got to professional status now - but yes the interest charges - (I haven't calculated precisely - are extremely high). All I can say is rather than wasting time fighting  - it may be better to look elsewhere for easier trades - which I have an abundance so not a problem for me. Hope all is well with you - I also speak to many personal friends too (I seem to see that you in the past ? have been taking some trades almost personally )-  but traders are not like friends and trust has to earned and then respected  - but I am sure you know this too well.🤓

    • @KoketsoIGFollowing up endlessly. Any updates yet?
    • Recently, we have noticed the growth of Mobile mining, a lot of projects have sprung up where users earn passively through these mining platforms. Under the same breath, ICE blockchain has evolved as a new digital currency that can be mined or earned from any mobile device. The bourgeoning blockchain is solely based on a community of trust and has a decentralized governance model. The network is built with inherent scalability, such that it can scale a good number of network participants without compromising its speed or efficiency. On its most positive side, the Ice Open Network has high performance and has the innate capacity to process millions of transactions per second, heralding it as one of the fastest blockchains in the world. Through the instrument of its threads and shards, it parallelizes transactions into bits thus significantly increasing throughput and enhancing scalabilty. Apart from being highly scalable, it is an offshoot of TON blockchain that seeks to bring forth decentralized services for data privacy, user control and efficient data management. In the core spirit of Web3, Ice network has a decentralized identity service that allows users to create and manage their own digital identities with top level assurance, privacy and security. Flowing from above, the ICE network has a good number of usecases and more are in the offing as well. Consequently, platforms like Bitget have declared intent to list the native token $ICE on 28th February, with a deposit to earn event. This is a really good way for the project to garner spotlight. I’m optimistic as per its growth in the long run.    
    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
