IG Trading - Questions


Recommended Posts

Greetings Community members:

I've a few questions about the commodity trading (Spot Gold):

  • What are the charges if the account balance goes to negative? (Spot Gold (1$ contract))
  • What are the charges for weekend and overnight open positions for Spot Gold (1$ contract)
  • How we do get alerted for the signals published?

Hi, not sure where you are based and so which regulator you come under but in the UK and now in Australia you have negative balance protection so won't happen but under the margin rules as a trade goes further into the red and uses up your margin requirement you will receive a magin call and if you don't add funds IG will close the trade before your account goes negative.

For overnight funding see this page.

Why is overnight funding charged and how is it calculated? | IG UK

Apologies for the delayed response, I'm from AU and thanks for pointers.

Is there a way to get alerted like in email or app when signals (Autochartist and PIA) are published? I haven't looked at the api's available yet but thought would ask before exploring that path.

Hi, don't think they do alerts for the web based platform so you need to check for updates. Autochartist is available on the MT4 platform (downloaded from the Autochartist web site ) and I think that one might have alerts if memory serves.

Thanks for the note.  The IG's instructions aren't much helpful

I did some research and found out that the plug in has to be downloaded from here

Configuration steps are mentioned here https://www.autochartist.com/metatrader-plugin/index_en.html

    • ūüĒłHello traders, let's review the 4 hour chart for AUDUSD today. Recently price was locked inside distribution trading range and subsequently it broke down below key s/r level near 6600 and hit 6500. Following the normal distribution pattern. ūüĒłShort-term expecting throwback to re-test mid of the distribution range and then expecting new wave of short-selling once we trigger 6700. Bears still maintain strategic control. ūüĒłRecommended strategy for AUDUSD bears: wait for the short-term bounce to complete near 6700 and then re-enter on SELL SIDE. TP1 bears +200 pips TP2 bears final +400 pips at 6350. Keep in mind this is a swing trade setup so will take more time to complete. good luck! ūüéĀPlease hit the like button and ūüéĀLeave a comment!
