Precious Metals and Basel III - how will IG customers be affected?


Recommended Posts

@MongiIG  Thanks - I understand that you are saying IG will not be legally restricted or prevented from offering these products, but what I'd like to know is whether IG anticipates Basel III affecting any of these markets, eg in terms of liquidity, availability of products in the underlying markets, etc. Are there any products that IG is currently considering withdrawing by its own choice as a result of Basel III?

Hi @HeOfMuchDisgrunt

Currently we don't anticipate withdrawing any products as a result. Obviously should this change we would let clients know. With regards to underlying market, this could impact liquidity as banks are required to hold more physical (allocated) gold thus pressuring supply (as they buy and hold) and demand (as they are required to hold more especially as collateral against unallocated gold).
 
Hope this answers your question.
 
All the best - MongiIG

    • Hi    when I try to buy the tickers SDIV and KBWD the platform does not allow me. This is strange as I have a broker account in France where I can easily buy these products. the MIFID retail legislation is related to CFD and margin, hence the reason must be different, can anybody help me?   Thanks
