''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.🤓

    • Still the silence is deafening in here. When will this happen?  it have moved most my Trading Capital to another broker who does support Trading veiw Does the deal with Tastytrade have something to do with this lack of progress?  
    • Well to me I feel that the  crypto market values transparency and reliable services. And Bitget has embraced this approach, attracting a large following,gaining up to 1.4million twitter followers,. Recent data shows significant growth in trading volume, solidifying its position in the market.  The exchanges  focus on user protection and satisfaction has fostered a loyal community. As the platform continues to evolve, its value may continue to grow. What are your thoughts on the importance of value in crypto, and what do you see as Bitget's future potential?
    • As more users embrace Dapp, it gets easier to trade crypto, engage in DeFi lending/borrowing and trade NFTs. With the growing need to trade NFT comes the introduction of Love Power Movement, a transparent and accessible marketplace with the best conditions for successful NFT sales. Although the NFT sector has recorded significant growth, it's still impeded by challenges like low protection of artists' and buyers' data, absence of organised policy protecting sellers and buyers amongst others. Love Power aims to tackle those by offering fixed commissions and royalties to creators, ensuring proper profit for sales. LPM token forming a crucial part of the ecosystem has been launched with no presale and VC investment, with intent to direct proceeds from token sales to NFT artists. As $LPM prepares to list on Bitget, the vast community of Love Power Movement would surely be watching keenly.
