Red Cross

Question

Hello,

 

I bought SoftBank corp in my ISA a few weeks back but I notice that it's had a Red Cross next to the ticker since then and the prices don't seem to update. I can't trade it now either..

 

Why is this?

 

Thanks

 

J

Hi   Important question. If no one in the community can answer you are more likely to get a response from an IG moderator who could answer or at least pass it on to approp peeps if you include in your message a link to their inbox by adding  @ *person* to one of the IG staffers as in    or     or

Out of interest how does SoftBank appear in your ISA? I believe it's the 9984.de in the Xetra market. If I look at other German shares they look normal and tradable - it's just Softbank.

 

I've also noticed a price of €999999999.0 on occasions for this share on my ISA overview. If you could execute my shares at that level I'll quite happily retire now...

Ha, well done, if only you could execute. Seems to be a weekend data feed anomaly by IG, have you looked at any other feed for this market? 

 

I don't hold softbank but know they are a keen funder of interesting startup companies. I know they have been in the news in the last 6 months odd but can't remember why.

It's been like it for a couple of weeks though. Still the same today.

 

It's my exposure to Asian firms. The guy that heads it up reminds me of Elon Musk so you can expect ambitious and positive news flow.

 

please help

Hi , thanks for the post and apologies you are having trouble with the particular listing in your portfolio.  I have contacted our equities desk and corporate actions team to see if they can shed some light on this and resolve it.  I'm aware there has been an intermittent pricing issue on XETRA stocks today, but am waiting for a full answer and will revert as soon as I can!

 

Thanks for your patience, and  for your input.

Hello again ,

 

Our equities desk have now confirmed that SoftBank Corp has ceased trading on XETRA and now trades on a Frankfurt exchange which we do not offer on the platform, hence why it has switched to being offline.  If you'd like to trade out of your position, please do call the dealing desk on 0207 896 0000 so a dealer can do so for you, but please note that there would be a phone commission charge to cover the very manual process involved for us to trade on this exchange.

 

I hope this answers your question, and apologies for any confusion caused.  Do let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

 

Thanks,

Hannah

Hi ,

 

Thanks for your help here. Isn't phone commission in the region of £40 per trade? It's a little unfair given that it's a service that you are not providing.

 

I think the least that IG could have done in such a situation is notify customers that shares will be switching to a different market. (I know you can't control this but the team knew).

 

I'll maintain my position now. If it compounds at an annual rate of 10% over 20 years then the £40 will be small change.

 

Thanks

 

James

Hi again ,

 

I appreciate your comment about the justification for charging phone commission in such circumstances, thanks for your feedback here. The issue is, as an exchange re-listing like this is out of our control, we ourselves do suffer from the increase in broker charges for executing any trade unfortunately!  We'd always be happy to look at trades on a case-by-case basis though, so please do contact the helpdesk when you're looking to trade and they can take a look for you.

 

Thanks again,

Hannah

    • IG need to provide a stock screener, live scanner for volume/price movement, pre-market data,  and rapid execution for private traders and rebate fees for trading view as they do for PRT, with traders who trade frequently. One can be ambitious and ask IG to provide a free platform like thinkorswim as Ameritrade does with current news stream  - again a free rebate for access to Benziga or similar with rebates linked to the amount of trades.  The money spent on IG TV perhaps can be spent somewhere else towards provision of some free resources to private traders/investors.  The IG tv is a serious issue - do IG really think that IG TV add any value?  Access to financial publications/sites might be a better thing.  The effort of IG to provide its own academy, advice etc is and always will probably a poor quality duplication.  Please learn/borrow from American brokers and now that their commission charges are Zero.  PRT - Can that be downloadable.  The web based form just slows everything down and very clunky and the charts are not elegant at all.  They have a community and they do develop or help develop some strategies. We do not want to lose them. But a live screener /scanner please.  I just realised that I do not even know if IF IT team even reads these comments or prioritise any of the suggestions. Please get rid of your IG TV investment, it is very annoying. And yes VWAP/anchored VWAP please on the charts. Give the private investors some of the rebates too. Is Charlotte, finally providing our redemption by talking these to the right eyes and ears! Overall, IG really is not that bad given others at least for UK investors. Perhaps just a less spread and less of that dreaded, sudden declaration that this stock is only for close and you can not open new position. I think that and the liquidity  excuse is lame unless IG is beholden to a particular market maker or IG somehow gets it in a very large position by itself.
    • This is my 2% swing file on the FTSE100 Index: Thought I'd show this as its messy! As you can SEE - there are multiple 2 higher lows that just did NOT work for one reason or another - this is why money management is crucial However, when it did work - the results were (profit target of 240pts, stop of 25 pts = 9.6R) If 1R = 2% of account then you're up 19% in 4 trading days Now the smart ones of you, will be asking yourself "How often does this happen in a YEAR on a DAILY chart?"  The answer is go and look - This is the water, I've led you to it, it's now up to those that want to win at this game to investigate Oh and YES, there are many more ultra simple trading methods in a year on a daily chart with these sorts of R profit value returns - the SP500, Nasdaq100, FTSE250, FTSE100, EURUSD etc etc etc all produce OPPORTUNITIES per year that return you 100%+ and nearer 300% PER market - Nothing more than a swing file on your charts! NO Indicators, No Moving Averages, just RAW price action I think for this thread I'll leave it there - If you can't prosper with these ultra simple methods then you're doing something massively wrong and if you go back and check the rules to success that i started this thread with, you'll be messing up on 1 or more of them - REVISIT them and learn them The one thing i will say is "To win big in the markets, you have to do what most others aren't doing - WD Gann showed me in his works the 2 Higher Lows / Lower Highs trade set-up, he wrote about it 100+ years ago! Along with many others that produce mega returns from the markets - I'm willing to bet very little is published out there on this subject" If you go down the Gann route - contact me - it is fraught with bad information and works, this is because people devote a lot of years to researching Gann and when they get to the end and realise they can't work it out they still publish the sub-standard work they have been researching, which then clogs up the trading literature world and after reading 10 so called Gann books and getting nowhere people then form the opinion that Gann is a load of tosh - I was one of those people back in early 2010's, then I did something most others wouldn't bother doing, I decided to research and discount it all myself I can tell you for a FACT: That Gann angles WORK  Time Cycles WORK Price Retracement and Expansion ratios WORK But only if you use them correctly, in the right context and conditions Why did the SP500 Index stop dead in March 2009 @ 666pts?  Back in the 1900's WD Gann wrote of the "Gravity Centre" or the 50% level - there lies the answer Good luck on your trading journey, most f you are going to fail because you're not applying the keys/rules to success - this is another fact. Here's a little bonus material Gann Angles chart for you If you KNOW the Time Cycle date and a simple Gann 1x1 angle falls onto THAT date (to the day) then you can be quietly confident that price is going to reach said 1x1 Gann angle within a few days of the date! The KEY is knowing Time Cycle dates - the ones above AREN'T the Time Cycles Gann mentions in his works THT
