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

    • So, the vaccines are not actually vaccines because the don't protect you from getting covid but might just reduce the symptoms somewhat, for a disease were 99.9% experience only mild symptoms anyway. With the animal studies of previous types of mRNA medications the real test was 6 - 12 months after injection when the autoimmune system malfunctions started to show, should be interesting as no one knows what's going to happen next because these vaccines were allowed to skip the animal testing phase.   Now that the plan has been shown to work are you ready for the gear change from covid lockdowns to climate change lockdowns yet? The WHO starts flashing hints. WHO warns a coronavirus vaccine alone will not end pandemic (cnbc.com)   And if the covid models were a deliberate fear mongering total exaggeration take a look at the climate change ones.     Meanwhile Fauci over steps the line and gets a well deserved ear full.
