The balance of power is changing in the European Union’s three largest economies which could have significant implications for financial markets.

Germany has just turned the page on Angela Merkel’s 16 years of leadership, France is bracing itself for an uncertain presidential election in the spring, and Italy is anxiously waiting to find out whether Mario Draghi will leave his prime ministerial post.

 

“We may well be in for a rather profound ‘watershed moment,’ with significant positive implications for policies,” Erik Nielsen, group chief economist at UniCredit, said in a note to clients in December. For more on this article CNBC

    • This is the E1 contract from an IG France account. All the best, KoketsoIG
    • Dear @cate, We're sorry to hear you didn't like the new platform. The old platform is being decommissioned, so we recommend using the new one. You can find the same markets by using the search function. For example, when I typed 'crude oil' on both platforms. To select the desired contract on the new platform, simply click on the market you want and then choose from the dropdown menu. The E1 contract is only available for Europe accounts, not UK accounts on both platforms. Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • Hi, I've been holding onto the old platform as long as I could, because I really don't like the new one,  but now it's being decommissioned I'm trying to use the new one finally. ☹️  On the old platform I had a choice of WTI either as a 1 euro or a £1 contract, and the same for Gold. But when I search on the new platform all I get is the  £1 contract as well as an absolute ton of ETFs. It doesn't even say it's the £1 version, it just calls itself "spot gold" which is a bit confusing because it looks as though you might be buying a full lot, not just a mini contract. Can anyone tell me how to find the 1 euro contracts, or are they just not available on the new platform? Many thanks, Cate
