Hi James 


My post was hoping , you would clarify criteria for I G to suspend trading on any instrument, on general information basis.I was not asking for comment on any specific situation.


When do you suspend trading?


Why would you suspend trading?

See the later posts in the tread, the guy was trading on the increased volatility around the big Japan earthquake not only without a guaranteed stop loss but without any stop loss at all. When the nuclear meltdown was discovered the nikkei would have been going crazy, no wonder IG stopped the market by calling a 'forced majeure event'. More info on this type of event is within the terms agreement.

Hi  , as  pointed out the above terms may have been accurate, however as previously stated IG wouldn't comment publicly.

    • Market Breakdown | WTI Oil, EURUSD, GBPNZD, EURAUDHere are the updates & outlook for multiple instruments in my watchlist.1️⃣ WTI Oil daily time frame️The market is trading in a long term bearish trend .After the last sharp bearish movement, the market is steadily recovering.Ahead, I see a major horizontal supply area.Probabilities are high, that the next bearish wave will initiate from there.2️⃣ EURUSD daily time frameAfter a breakout of a solid daily resistance, the market is preparing for its retest.Watch carefully the underlined zone and look for buying opportunities from there.3️⃣ EURAUD weekly time frameThe pair is currently approaching a weekly horizontal resistance cluster.Taking into consideration, that the pair is quite overbought, probabilities will be high to see a pullback from that4️⃣ GBPNZD daily time frameThe pair is currently retesting a broken neckline of an ascending triangle .

    • #CHFJPY: Classic Bearish Setup 🇨🇭🇯🇵   🔻CHFJPY has nicely respected a confluence zone based on a horizontal 4H resistance and a 0.5 retracement of the last bearish impulse.   The price formed a double top pattern on that and broke its neckline.   Probabilities will be high that the pair will drop lower soon. Goals: 141.172 / 140.363
