if u r new to IG

Question

make sure you know what u are getting into 

 

this is not an exchange

 

this is  a company making profits  on  spreads and funding

 

everything is designed to help them not you 

 

you will be regularly stopped out at weird hours on questionable market "prices"

 

much better to be used for intraday stuff than as an investment tool 

 

caveat emptor

Hi - Like you said it's really important that all new clients know exactly what they are trading, how markets are priced, and what account type they are signing up for. To clarify...

 

If you are trading on a share dealing account you will be trading directly in the market and there will always be a trade printed in that specific underlying exchange which reflects the exact trade that you have done.

 

If you trade shares via CFD DMA then the same thing applies as you are trading directly in the market. 

If you trade CFD FX Direct then you are dealing directly in the FX market. 

 

If you trade other CFD products or spread betting then all these prices will be derived from the underlying market. This is because you are trading a leveraged derivatives product which have their own unique advantages. Spread betting is generally capital gains tax free for example. You can see how specific markets are priced and how the markets work on our website and help and support portal. 

 

If you ever want to know more about a market before you trade it please research and get in contract first. If you ever don't know how a market is priced and would like to go through it one-on-one, please ask in IG Community or give us a call. If you ever want to query a trade, a filled order, a stop or limit, or anything on your account please give us a call as soon as possible. The dealer will be able to talk you through everything and provide evidence to show you how the trade was executed in the underlying market. 

 

We are a fully regulated, UK listed market leader, so please get in touch if you don't understand something or would like more information.

Ask questions

 

"how do you make money trading with I G?"

 

Trade a profitable method without stops

 

"Why am I getting stopped out with wide overnight spreads and overnight markets at I G?

 

Overnight spreads are wider

 

" How do you use  I G  to stop everything designed against you and to make yourself rich , by avoiding such traps that make I G  money and not you?.

 

Don't use stops use options as a stop loss

 

 

If you ask  questions professionally, you will be given  the answers.

Hi all,

Does a stock having dividend will impact for a CFD trade?

If yes, may I know how?

Good day!

hi - if you are long a set number of shares via a CFD then you will receive a cash deposit for the appropriate dividend on the Ex date. If you are short then you will pay the required div and be debited from your account.

What are 'options', (and how do we use them as a stop loss) ?

    • Comcast / Disney bidding war ends - EMEA brief 20th July
      The Comcast / Disney bidding war for 21st Century Fox ended yesterday with the former pulling out of the race. Comcast have stated they are still planning on pursuing Sky. Asian equity markets pushed higher overnight over a volatile trading session as the Chinese yuan bounced off a one year low. Trump showed displeasure towards the Fed's hikes, criticising policy and highlighting concerns on the potential impact of rising interest rates on the US economy causing the Dollar to sag.

      The losses seen in some of the Asian markets are expected to continue in Europe, with small drops for indices expected. Canadian CPI is the sole macro point of interest, while on the earnings front General Electric and Schlumberger report figures. The US dollar will also be in focus after President Trump commented that further rate increases could derail the economic boom in the US.

    • Market Screening for Dividend Opportunities
      This article will also look at IGs market screening tool and attempt to come up with some ideas the stocks that could be bought on the basis of the dividend they offer. It seems a good time to at least begin starting to look at stocks that pay a good dividends (begin creating a Watchlist maybe?)  but crucially stocks that also seem capable of continuing to pay that dividend.

      The reason for this article is the markets have been a bit turbulent lately: there are various geopolitical events on the horizon (which could trigger panic in the market) but also because with stocks trading near all-time highs it may be more prudent to look for stocks that pay in income (dividend) rather than stocks for future the growth potential. And lastly the previous stock market crash was 10 years ago. That in itself is not a sign of doom, but history repeats, eventually. 😉
