I was a successful binary trader. I was Gutted as a retailer the facilities got removed from my account.

Where and what country does I.G allows retailers to trade binary?

Hi @a1ocean

Thanks for reaching out.
ESMA, the European financial regulator, has chosen to ban the marketing, distribution or sale of binary options to retail investors. This means IG no longer offers digital 100s or sprint markets to retail clients contracted with a European IG office.

How can you continue to trade digital 100s with IG?

You can explore our global range of products and services to find out which IG office offers the best trading account for you, based on your trading priorities. 

Also please note that professional clients are still able to trade digital 100s. If you have high levels of trading experience, a large investment portfolio or experience working in financial services, you may meet regulatory criteria to be categorised as professional. 
If you think you may be eligible, you can elect to be categorised as professional in three steps:
  1. Open My IG to your IG account
  2. Follow the prompts
  3. Answer the questions
If you can’t see the prompt, go to ‘settings’ > ‘client and account status’ on desktop, or the 'accounts' area in-app.
Please note that if you elect to be categorised as a professional client, you’re not deemed to need the same level of protection as a retail client and your trading may be subject to fewer restrictions – including those on margin rates.
All the best - MongiIG

    • Because of this, it's wise for traders to thoroughly investigate exchanges before choosing one. I exclusively deal with cryptocurrency exchanges that have declared proof of reserve in the wake of the unfortunate events that saw some go bankrupt and others hack. Because of what I've heard traders say about Bitget and the fact that it met my requirements, I had to start using it right away. Therefore, I'd advise DYOR to choose whatever best meets your needs.
    • The Santa Rally – Christmas Growth in the Stock Market. You may well of heard of the ‘Santa Rally’. It’s a commonly discussed stock market theory. It is the basic concept that the stock markets, particularly the major indices, show positive returns on the run up to Christmas and the New year. Myth or legend? We look at the stats.  As you can see from the below table the FTSE100 rose in price in 12 of the 15 years. That’s 80% of the time. The average difference was 1.95% https://moneysandi.com/the-santa-rally-christmas-growth-in-the-stock-market/ Anyone had any experience of trading this?  #trading #money #trader #investing #investment #crypto #stockmarket #stocks #business #invest #entrepreneur #finance #investor #daytrader #daytrading #trade  #wallstreet #wealth #santarally #finance
    • It all boils down to the exchange's dedication to protect customers' assets. Apparently these exchanges that haven't recorded any hacks for 5+ years of functioning like the case of the first exchange you mentioned, are working behind the scene to make it happen. HTX and the likes need to do more and save the industry’s reputation already.
