I have been asked the following.

Can I trade future and options of indices like FTSE, S&P and future and options of stocks like BP, Barclays as well as future and options of forex pairs through IG?

 

Please phone customer service , they may take futures orders by phone.I only use daily spread bets, these are as good, except for the carry cost difference.

 

Options can be traded online . but please check your requirements on online platform , if not ring customer service.They may trade other options by phone.

Also any idea about minimum amount that I require to take a position for example to buy a FTSE contract at todays/31-Jan-2018 price i.e. £7471 and also to buy a call option of say £7500.

 

Just key in your ticket and it will show the margin

Hey all. Posted on the other thread as well.  "So you can trade all options, bar individual stocks, on the classic dealing platform. You will need to phone deal for an individual stock, however once booked to your account you'll be able to seeing running P&L on your desktop or mobile. 

 

If you buy a call and the future there will note be an offset. To get an exact quote in real time (as these things are variable on the delta) please give one of our dealers a call and they can walk you though the calculation. "

    • To a degree it depends on the outlook for other currencies and so the record low GBP has recently hit vs USD (post-decimalisation) is just one area to witness. IGTV caught up with Ron William from RW Advisory. GBP          
    • The Reserve Bank of Australia continued to hike rates for the sixth consecutive month, taking the cash rate to 2.60%, the highest level since 2013. Source: Bloomberg   Forex Indices Australia Inflation ASX Relative strength index Hebe Chen | Market Analyst, Melbourne | Publication date: Tuesday 04 October 2022  The Reserve Bank of Australia continued to hike rates for the sixth consecutive month by 25bps, pushing the cash rate to 2.60%, the highest level since 2013. Since May 2022, Australia’s cash rate target has risen 2.25%, comparable to 1994 when interest rates rose 2.75% in five months. Source: ABC/RBA In their official statement, the RBA reiterated its commitment to bring Australia's inflation rate back down with further increases. Phillip Lowe stated, “The Board remains resolute in its determination to return inflation to target and will do what is necessary to achieve that." ASX 200 Following Wall Street’s rally to kick off the new month, the Australian stock market also enjoyed the best day in three months on Tuesday. A gain of more than 2.5% has helped the ASX 200 to break through the steep descending trend line and escape the lowest point of the year. Looking ahead, for the price to consolidate, the short-term bull-biased momentum, the level of 6574 will be a key level to watch. If an attempt to overcome this level fails, we could expect the price to retest the 6462 level. On the flip side, once the imminent hurdle is cleared, the door will be open for the ASX to touch the 20-day MA since mid-September. Source: IG AUD/USD AUD/USD has been hovering around the 0.6458 level as the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement area appears to be strong support. As the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is recovering from the oversold territory, the Aussie currency may stage further towards the next destination, where the 20-day MA sits, at around 0.66. However, the July low at 0.6697 could limit the sky for such a rebound. In that case, the pair will resume the downtrend as another lower high will be painted. Source: IG
    • We opened the month of October and the final quarter of the year with a strong rally from the S&P 500 and other risk measures. However, the swell may have more to do with temporary liquidity flows; with longer-term norms for the likes of VIX and structural issues such as recession fears amplifying the market’s sensitive to threats.
