Question

With the new ASIC changes, i think IG has introduced a bug. I bought 1 CALL and 1 PUT option worth AU$30 and its holding AU$1300 as margin. Why do you need to hold margin when i an buying options, paying in cash. This was not a problem until last week so i am sure its a bug introduced while making changed as per ASIC.

It took me an hour to call and when i told them, they put me on hold & then hung up. Can someone please fix this?

    • Dow Jones, Nasdaq 100 and S&P500 index prices gain despite Powell comments Volatile trade, following Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s comments at the Economic Club of Washington DC, has ultimately ended in gains for major US indices the SP500, Dow Jones and Nasdaq 100. Source Bloomberg   Indices Market trend Federal Reserve Dow Jones Industrial Average Nasdaq-100 Trade  Shaun Murison | Senior Market Analyst, Johannesburg | Publication date: Wednesday 08 February 2023  While the Fed chair noted that inflation was continuing to ease, he also suggested that US lending rates are likely to rise further. While disinflation has begun in the world’s largest economy, figures remain a far cry off the central banks 2% target. Expectations are that rates are still likely to reach the 5% to 5.25% range, considered a point of neutrality. However, Mr Powell cautioned markets that the reemergence of higher inflation and strong labour reports could push rates further than markets currently expect. Markets appeared to dismiss the ‘hawkish’ comments from the Fed, and major benchmark indices have started to extend the bullish trends we have seen this year. S&P 500 (US 500)   Source IG The moving 20 (red), 50 (green)and 200 (blue) day simple moving averages (MAs) reaffirm the upward trend bias for the SP500 index. The stochastic oscillator currently labours in overbought territory. Our view is that the trend takes precedence over the overbought signal. A shallow pullback on the index looks to have ended with a bullish engulfing candle pattern / price reversal. 4195 and 4220 provide the initial upside resistance targets from the move higher, while 4325 provides a longer-term upside resistance target. Traders who are long might consider using close below the 4085 low as a tight stop loss indication for the trade. A tight stop loss consideration is in lieu of the overbought conditions in play. Traders could also consider trailing a stop loss with the red trend line on the chart. Nasdaq 100 (US 100) Source IG The technical indications on the Nasdaq 100 (US Tech 100) are like that of the SP500. The moving 20 (red), 50 (green)and 200 (blue) day simple moving averages (MAs) reaffirm the upward trend bias for the index while stochastic oscillator currently labours in overbought territory. A shallow pullback on the index looks to have ended with a bullish engulfing candle pattern / price reversal. 12900 and 13190 are the initial upside resistance targets from the move higher. Traders who are long might consider using close below the 12400 low as a tight stop loss indication for the trade. A tight stop loss consideration is in lieu of the overbought conditions in play. Traders could also consider trailing a stop loss with the red trend line on the chart. Dow Jones Industrial Index (Wall Street 30) Source IG The Dow Jones Industrial Index while also posting gains in the near term, reflects a slightly different trading environment right now to the SP500 and Nasdaq indices. The short to medium term trend for the index is considered sideways, while the longer-term trend bias is considered up. The sideways range is considered between levels 32475 (support) and 34660 (resistance). Traders of the index might prefer to keep a long bias to trades in lieu of the longer-term uptrend still in play. Long trade considerations might be on a bullish price reversal closer to range support or on a bullish upside break of range resistance.
    • Early Morning Call: Jerome Powell warns inflation fight will take "quite a bit of time" Federal Reserve chair, Jerome Powell, acknowledged yesterday before the Economic Club of Washington that interest rates may need to move higher than expected.  Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Wednesday 08 February 2023  Equity market overview It was a mixed session overnight in the Asia-Pacific region, after gains for US indices yesterday. In Europe, equity markets opened higher, the FTSE 100 having set a new record high earlier this morning on the IG 24-hour market. Fed Federal Reserve (Fed) chair, Jerome Powell, acknowledged yesterday before the Economic Club of Washington that interest rates may need to move higher than expected. He refused to say that the 517,000 jobs created last month would necessarily force the Fed's benchmark interest rate higher than the 5% to 5.25% range currently anticipated but admitted he didn't expect it to be this strong. Powell said policymakers were open to shocks in either direction - ready to approve even tighter monetary policy if continued strong job gains lead to higher wages and prices. Earnings Barratt Developments, Britain's largest house builder, flagged persisting market uncertainty as high mortgage rates weigh on demand. The group posted a half-year (H1) pretax profit of £501.5 million, compared with £432.6m. TotalEnergies posted a record adjusted net profit of $36.2 billion in 2022, double the level of a year earlier. TotalEnergies' fourth quarter (Q4) adjusted net income was $7.6bn. A year earlier, the group posted a net income of $6.8bn. The company said it would propose a dividend of €2.81 per share, up 6.4% from a year earlier and on top of an already announced €1 per share special payout. Société Générale posted a higher-than-expected profit in the fourth quarter, driven by the strong performance of its corporate and investment banking division. The third largest French bank reported net income of €1.16bn, beating analyst's consensus of €834m. This was, however, 35% lower than the same period a year ago, as the bank's hiked provisions for failing loans was up fivefold to €413m. Volkswagen pushed out its preliminary figures for the year. It said that its full-year (FY) adjusted operating profit was €22.5bn, missing analysts' expectations of €22.96bn. The German automaker generated a net cash flow of around €5 billion in fiscal 2022, falling short of its self-imposed target of achieving net cash flow at the level of the previous year of €8.6 billion. The company said the shortfall was due mainly to an unstable supply chain throughout the year and disruptions in the logistics chains, particularly at the end of 2022. As a result, working capital and in particular inventories of finished goods, raw materials and supplies at the end of the year were significantly higher than expected. Current planning for 2023 suggests that this year-end 2022 increase in working capital will largely reverse during the year. In the US, Walt Disney is scheduled to post quarterly earnings tonight after the US closing bell. The upcoming results that will mark the return of Bob Iger at the helm. On November 20, Iger was called back by the Disney board, following the immediate dismissal of Bob Chapek. Analysts expect earnings of 79 cents per share on revenue of $23.43bn. Subscription numbers for Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+ will again be in focus. The group's parks and recreation services had a phenomenal return to growth in 2022, and markets will be looking to see whether the group managed to keep the momentum going. Uber Technologies is also set to report tonight after market close. In the third quarter (Q3) of 2022, Uber recorded a net loss of $1.2 billion, $512 million of which was attributed to revaluations of Uber's equity investments. However, the company beat analysts' estimates for revenue, which grew by 72% year-over-year (YoY), and reported that adjusted EBITA exceeded its guidance of $440 - $470m. As for the fourth quarter, the market expects a loss per share of 18 cents and revenue of $8.4bln. The market will also be closely looking for the number of monthly active users, the number of trips, and the number of customers who have subscribed to Uber One.   This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
