Can Russia back down in Ukraine? - Vox

Russia-Ukraine Progress

Constructive talks between Russia and Ukraine have sparked a fresh wave of optimism for a potential peace deal. In the latest round of talks, Ukraine has proposed adopting a neutral status in exchange for security guarantees, meaning that it would not join military alliances or host military bases. Subsequently, Ukraine believes that enough progress has been made for a meeting to be scheduled between Putin and Zelensky. What’s more, Russia has also stated that they will sharply cut military operations near Kyiv and Chernihiv.

Oil and Gold Slides to Session Lows

This is by far the most positive development we have had regarding the Russian-Ukraine conflict. In turn, wars trades have continued to unwind with both oil and gold prices coming under notable pressure. The latter eyeing key support at 1880-85, where should the precious metal close below risks tilted towards 1835-50.

    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
    • We have to wait until Friday to find out if the UK economy skirted a recession.   Richard Snow, foreign exchange analyst at Daily FX, tells IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor that after the third quarter contraction of 0.3%, there is a risk around the incoming data for the fourth quarter. Here he discusses GBP/USD as a trade to go short. But what if GDP comes in slightly higher? Richard says that is likely to be largely academic and that he believes the short trade will prevail.
