IG use the 'Custodian' model which allows trading on digital exchanges. This means you don't actually hold the shares and so don't have voting rights at AGMs etc. They are all held by a third party (Citi Bank), couldn't say what they do but you are guaranteed that the shares are yours and you can sell on demand if the exchange allows.

Hi Casey,

 

Thank you for reply.. I wanted to make sure my shares are not being loaned out ... is there anyway to signal my preference for shares not to be leant out to anyone else?

 

I guess not according to your response above .... I may need to move from IG to one that will honour my wishes ..

Thanks

I don't think you need worry, never heard of any problems having followed IG in the news for over 10 years and on the forum here since it started late 2015.

You are correct though that some institutions do lend shares to short sellers. Can't see that it's a problem for IG as they don't actually hold the shares (see first reply) and for a long time now they don't allow you to sell stocks you don't already own.

You can short CFD contracts but they're not actual shares and even so you will often see a note to say certain share cfd contracts are 'unborrowable' (to enter short).

I'll try a deep search to see if I can find anything on the website.

    • Commodity Market Elliott Wave Analysis for Bitcoin, Bonds, Yields, USD/ DXY, Gold, Silver, Iron Ore, Copper, Uranium, Crude Oil, Natural Gas, Corn, Wheat, Soybeans, Coffee, Cocoa. Commodity Market Elliott Wave Analysis Update: Identifying the crucial turn in the USD is paramount in our analysis. However, the challenge lies in interpreting the upward movement of the USD DXY, as it can be construed in multiple ways. To gain clarity on the DXY, I examine the 10-year Yields, which indicate further upside potential. Concurrently, TLT Bonds suggest continued downside momentum. Consequently, Gold, Silver, and base metals remain susceptible to selling pressure. Additionally, the Crude oil market exhibits an upward trajectory, aligning closely with the movement of the USD DXY. Notably, Forex pairs, particularly the AUDUSD, demonstrate a direct correlation due to the interconnectedness of commodity dollars. In summary, the market pivot necessary for trading has yet to materialize and may not occur until mid-March 24. Bitcoin: Wave iv) has concluded, and Wave v) appears poised towards 55k. Dollar: Expectations point to an increase in both the Dollar and Yields, with Bonds likely to decline. Gold and Silver: Currently experiencing a corrective rally. Crude oil: Favorable for long positions in crude, while shorting gas remains advisable. Video Chapters 00:00 Bitcoin (BTC) 03:28 US Dollar Index, DXY / TLT Bonds.

    • Yeah, I think it's the mechanism behind the BGB price trend. This could go farther than one would expect. So I'll be trying to add it to my pf to help boost its healthiness in the future.
    • I don't think we can still take part in the airdrop but buying it could be the best option particularly as the market seems to be helping to create a good entry price.
