Question

Hi guys,

 

Just some feedback...

 

Last couple of days I've been getting messages from the IG app on my phone when stocks move by a large percentage.

 

I don't remember setting this up, but I think they're great!

 

PS: Why do I get these, does anybody know? Under which conditions are they triggered? Is this configurable?

 

Regards

Stef

Hi Stef 

 

You must be special - from the forum response, seems like you are the only person who gets them ??? 

 

I can't say I do but I don't trade stocks - I remember this was discussed some Think-Tank-topic ago, so maybe you are being used as a test-run.  You would be a good person to give feedback seeing as you know what you're talking about. 

 

Are the alerts bi-directional?  Wonder if they can be set for anything that's tradeable.  ?  Your phone must be busy these days with all the volatility around. 

Hmm, maybe someone else can help solve this IGapp-mystery...?  Interesting.

Hi,

 

I am glad to hear you are enjoying the major market move alerts! We came up with these based on feedback we had from many clients wanting to be alerted to out of ordinary market activity. 

 

At this point in time the functionality of the alerts is being tested and so the abilty to adjust them is not available, however rest assured I have echoed your request to the team that is looking after these alerts. In terms of the levels that are set these are predefined according to the market they are related to and for what is considered a major market move for that market. 

 

If you have any ideas of what could be done to improve them then please do share them as it is that feedback in the first place that led them to be made.

 

Thanks

    • 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.
