Unlongable? You mean only HODL, absolutely no trading allowed.


Recommended Posts

Can't long, only short and that's 90% of the time.

I may as well buy the real thing and HODL because that's all this broker can do right now.

Can't swing trade because you never know when you can long again

Can't do anything intra-day because you never know when you can long

IG = HODL only.

Also can't short when very volatile because I don't know.

 

Can we get like a net position limit per customer? James, you probably have 60% + of your bitcoin positions being long term HODLers who don't care about overnight interest rates. That isn't trading, they can head to local bitcoins with an envelope of cash under the table.

i entirely agree. the inability to buy back has become an inhibition against selling when it would otherwise be the right thing to do. short term trading is now impossible on IG all of whose crypto markets have been unlongable today. having actually sold ETH at the top of the market ( a rare success) I have had to sit and watch it crawl back up with no chance of going long and no idea when a buy will be permitted. i think it is time to look elsewhere.

I absolutely sympathize. I sold my bitcoins at what I thought was a daily high and was right. Later I realised I was actually wrong because now I couldn't buy back and have missed on later gains.

 

Unfortunately their competition is unacceptable too. IG is still better than *****oro and premium500

There was opportunity today to buy ETH as price was dropping around lunchtime.

 

I was waiting for that moment for people to sell off at $1200- had been discussing in a different thread. As price dropped it allows long biased traders to add to their positions. There will be plenty of opportunities to go long and short yet but yes you do need to keep checking the market info tab for when you can get in.

    • Crypto trading is a bit complicated when it comes to understanding the dynamics in profit making. Some people are more inclined to technical analysis which of course has been the widely used trading tool but some are more inclined to fundamentals but sticking to fundamentals alone could be highly risky in my own opinion even though crypto is also financial instrument that often respond to news updates.  A blend of the two could provide a safety net for traders in minimizing losses compared to potential profit. The above case scenario is largely attributed to perp futures trading and other derivatives. TA and FA could also be very useful for spot trading but I feel timely listing of projects could largely determine one's profit from investing in a project. These may not be for all projects cos some are **** coins. This could be a personal perspective but I have noticed listing speed is also another important factor to consider along with project fundamentals when trading and if we are to include listing speed as a factor for choosing trade then it will affect our choice of trading platform cos some are more inclined to top cap projects while others are more inclined low cap gems.   My experience with ORDI has proven this trading skill rewarding. ORDI was first listed on Bitget before other exchange joined the listing party after it saw rapid adoption reflecting in it significant MCap growth. This chart should give us a glimpse of my experience with this strategy.
    • In a stunning display of market momentum, the PANDORA token, the first of its kind, has skyrocketed an astonishing 4872% from its introduction on February 2nd to February 7th. This remarkable performance has not only caught the attention of cryptocurrency enthusiasts but has also solidified PANDORA’s position as a groundbreaking asset in the digital currency landscape. Pandora's ERC-404 protocol revolutionizes the token landscape by seamlessly blending the qualities of ERC20 and ERC721 standards. This experimental mixed implementation enables persistent liquidity and non-fungibility for NFTs, unlocking a realm of possibilities previously unexplored. Adding to the excitement, Bitget Wallet is gearing up to introduce a specialized section dedicated to ERC-404 token market listings. This feature creates a hub for tokens that blend the best of both worlds—the liquidity of ERC-20s and the uniqueness of ERC-721 NFTs. I have come to believe that, the electrifying surge of PANDORA token and the innovative ERC-404 standard is not just a fleeting trend but a window into the future of cryptocurrency.
    • A significant turning point in the #PORTALxBitget collaboration is the listing of $PORTAL on Bitget through the Candybomb event, which opens up benefits and synergistic prospects like 1. Diversified Trading choices: Users now have access to a wide range of trading choices thanks to $PORTAL's listing on the exchange, including cutting-edge leveraged trading capabilities and spot trading. This gives customers the freedom to interact with $PORTAL in a way that suits their preferred level of risk and trading techniques. 2. Community Synergy: By uniting the exchange users and the pre-existing $PORTAL community, the Candybomb event stimulates community engagement. Through this synergy, a positive environment surrounding #PORTALxBitget may be developed, encouraging cooperation, information exchange, and sustained interest in the project. Could this recent collab stimulate the  stage for a fruitful and mutually beneficial relationship between #PORTAL and exchange.
