[CLOSED] December 'Contributor of the Month' competition - prizes to be won


Recommended Posts

This is now closed and the thread is locked. Winners will be announced shortly. 

 

The first Contributor of the Month award in November was a success, with a total of £500's worth of gift vouchers and trading books given out. We want to repeat this in December as our way of saying thank you for the Communities continued involvement, assistance, market discussion, and trade idea conversation!

 

The rules are similar to before. We will be selecting our favorite contributor to the IG community based on both the quantity and quality of their posts. This means the winner won’t necessarily be the person who posts the most messages, but someone who has really helped to bring the community to life.

 

 

1st place (the winner) will receive a £200* gift voucher and £50* worth of trading books. ** 

2nd place will receive a £125* gift voucher and £50* worth of trading books. **

 

Ways to increase your chances of being Contributor of the Month

  • Posting quality content across a broad range of topics. 
  • Helping others, as well as giving and receiving ‘Accepted Solutions’ and ‘Likes’.
  • Asking question to IG Community, submitting feedback to IG, and generally getting involved!

3rd place will receive a £75* gift voucher.

 

If you're new to IG Community, or trading in general, it may be daunting to post trade ideas and market discussion. We have therefore reserved the 3rd place prize for someone who;

  • Introduces themselves to the IG Community 
  • Submits feedback on IG's offering (e.g. feedback on our platform, apps, deal execution etc)
  • Asks any number of questions they like (e.g. how to trade, how to use a certain feature etc)

 

 

We’ll be running this throughout the calendar month of December 2017 with the winner picked in the New Year. The winner will also have the 'Contributor of the Month' badge added to their profile and a special icon next to your name for the proceeding month so all Community members are aware of your contributions. The competition is subject to our terms and conditions.

 

If you have any questions please ask below.

 

All the best
James
Community Manager

Hello Amit Ruparelia here. I have been trading for many years with IG markets; having switched from Saxo bank. I found the latter to be a very clunky and expensive platform to use, and worst of all, the most appalling customer service I have ever experienced. They were never sure whether they genuinely had a Uk subsidiary in its own right, or whether it was just done for tax, legal and regulatory requirements. Customer service (albeit an 0800 number) would invariably be routed to Copenhagen who would say that they were just a call handler and would re route the call to London office. Sometimes the calls went completely unaswered and were routed back to Copenhagen and so went the merry go round, as the markets continued to “wait for no man”. They had excessive charges and, as many of you will have noticed, their margin and collateral requirements appear to go up on an almost weekly basis, even when there are no particularly market moving volatile events of the week! This can be extremely disconcerting when one has a strategy, open positions and sufficient margin and safety coverage, only to find another pinged email saying that they were increasing their margin requirements on hundreds of instruments WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT. This often happened when one was not watching their account and markets remained fairly sanguine with low volatility. By contrast over the years I have found IGs customer service to be the best, regardless of whether I am talking to someone in Hong Kong , Singapore, Australia or London. The staff are always knowledgable, smart, professional. I can’t think of an instance when they haven’t sorted the issue to my satisfaction, even when the mistake was inadvertently mine. Hats off to IGs customer focussed, GENUINELY global customer service and competitive margin rates. This is my genuine experience and I have not been paid by IG to say this. In fact I have put my money where my mouth is by introducing three HNW family members to IG markets. They have been equally pleased and want to invest more with IG. As a genuine professional trader for over 15 years, I can genuinely say, I wouldn’t go back to the shambles that is Saxobank EVEN IF THEY PAID ME!

I have been a trade at IG for 20 years , the service is good.

 

My only problem is the overnight spreads and trading off the market , when the exchanges are closed, this may result in stops being hit with overnight  volatility .I found a solution to it by trading options, my options purchased can never be closed by I G overnight , unless I am over trading which I don't do.

    • shocking!!!!!!!!   but not surprised as I was always afraid about stuff getting on to those face masks   
    • 👀  Very interesting article by ZeroHedge on the recent big main stream narrative flip (China lab leak); Why The Davos Elites Just Played The 'Jon Stewart' Card | ZeroHedge ''Now Stewart comes out at this moment to pull his schtick on Colbert’s show to rally the libs to the whole WuFlu, “China Did It To Us” Narrative The Davos Crowd is pushing on us now?  '' ''They’ve pulled out the Jon Stewart card to convince the squishy Millennials that China is our enemy.  Google will now whitewash all references to Ft. Detrick, their October 2019 exercises and all the rest of it.  Remember, Millennials, in general, don’t know anything.  They just Google **** and think they’re informed.''   Here is the comedy show segment (8 min) the article centres on, watch it first.    
    • Sky reports on a new 'outbreak of covid' found during the mass testing of asymptomatic kids. No rise in 111 calls, or hospital admissions, or deaths. So just another outbreak of faux 'cases' then. This is why the mass testing of asymptomatics is a waste of time and nearly every other country is stopping it. The UK keep it up because it's useful to coerce people into taking the jab. They already stopped it for adults, they've been jabbed. There is only a few hours between getting infected and developing symptoms, very few would actually be tested then. Once you have symptoms you are not allowed in a testing station or at school. So most of those 'cases' are false positives, or bad lab work (even the BBC admits that is happening), or most likely people with immunity who have come into contact with the virus up to a month previously and old fragments from the destroyed virus are left in the blood. This virus has been circulation for over 18 months, there can't be many who have not already come into contact with it. But but but variants!!!!!!!! There are already many research papers out that show that immunity works on the variants. Only govt science experts and model makers pretend otherwise.   Meanwhile, continuing studies (if you've been jabbed you're in it) are showing the vaccines to be increasingly unsafe while more and more studies show Ivermectin is safe, cheap and effective against covid and can also be taken prophylactically.   Ivermectin for Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19 Infection A Systematic Review, Meta-analysis, and Trial Sequential Analysis to Inform Clinical Guidelines' Ivermectin for Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19 Infectio... : American Journal of Therapeutics (lww.com)
