5 places to get trade ideas from the IG Community


Recommended Posts

IG Community Morning Call
Every day throughout the trading week we post a macro economic wrap and morning call here. This is posted before the European equity markets open at 8am London time and gives an overview of how the markets have reacted over the last 24 hours, as well as give an idea of what to expect from the day. 

2017-09-22 15_02_39-Morning Call - Daily Discussion 18.09.17 _ IG Community.pngYou'll notice we sometimes include markets of interest and client sentiment if there is a particular market event or important data release, or a particular global event which is providing a potential trade opportunity. An economic calendar from our sister news site, Daily FX, and some interesting links are also included at the bottom of the page. 



Market Discussion and Strategy
The IG Community is a place for clients to share trade ideas and strategy. You can see all the asset class discussion here. We have broken the sections down into individual asset types such as FX, commodities, indices, shares, and general trading discussion. 

It's important to remember to never trade based purely on something you have read without doing your own due diligence. If you do see a trade idea you like, make sure you do your own research around it and that you understand the deal you are going to place. There's no problem trying something in a Demo account if you wish as this is a great place to try a strategy without any risk. 



New platform releases 
IG have recently released a new web trading platform which has far more functionality and additional charting tools which maybe useful for your technical analysis strategy. You can see everything we have on offer via the IG Community New Platform section. I have included a video talking about the new platform below which some people may find interesting. Currently this is only available on a spread betting account, however we will soon be rolling it out for CFD clients as well. You can also check out our IGTV video on how to trade economic events which highlights other aspects of the new platform. 


IG Features

Every couple of weeks the IG Community will host a 'Feature'. This will be a topical post which will focus on a specific market movement, a macro economic news release, or another area which maybe of interest for the Community. Sometimes this will be a technical discussion, whilst other times it will be a 


Our first couple of posts can be reviewed below, and if you have any requests of what you would like to see, please let us know in the comments section below.



Dividend Adjustments
Each week, we receive the forecast for the number of points any index is due to drop by, and we publish this every Friday here. As dividends are scheduled, public events, it is important to remember that leveraged index traders can neither profit nor lose from such price movements.

With this in mind there are some trading strategies which will focus on the individual constituents of that index (i.e. an individual share), or the index price action before or after the event.

    • Investing in crypto could be challenging especially the Fear of Missing out Lambo. This mostly affect traders trading strategy and ideology. Predicting the right time to buy is always cumbersome and that is why many analyst advise DCA because it curtails FOMO and gives you a long-term crypto trading mentality. In crypto Dollar Cost Averaging involves investing the same amount of money in a target token at regular intervals over a certain period of time, regardless of price. This will help to control volatility on your portfolios and minimize FOMO For example when you decide to invest $100 on a token and invest $10 daily or weekly or monthly till you fulfilled you $100 target investment on the token irrespective of the price of the token. This strategy helps a crypto trader to build his portfolio over the long term thereby he/she is not bothered by short-term volatility in the broader markets. This strategy mostly favours low-budget traders in building a strong portfolio but the problem most normally encounter is exchange minimum trading amount. One analyst advised on how to mitigate this was to accumulate on exchange that has lower trading fees and later send to where you desire to hold. He also noted that some of this exchanges are good in listing good projects for you to be among the early birds. Do you think DCA is the best method to accumulate token and which exchange offers the lowest tradeable balance and trading fees?
