Dow Index


Recommended Posts

Well this is my first real post and it turns out to be a request


I use the spreadbetting part of IG for indices, in particular Wall Street


Previously, IG would include the Dow in their "Levels to Watch" article each day, this has now been replaced with the S&P 500.


How can I encourage IG to comment on this index again?

Hi Mr Jakes,


There is a suggestions section on the main community page where you can communicate directly with IG people and the rest of the users.


Also there is an active US markets thread where the Dow is discussed regularly.  As an FYI, we had a discussion on the merits of the Dow vs the S&P500 in which people seemed to prefer the S&P because it is the biggest market and much more diverse than the DOW (30 large caps only).  See also a Thread on the Russell 2000 small cap market as a trend setter.


When you explore the community threads and actively participate in the discussions I think you will get a lot of benefit on your chosen markets.  If no one is talking about something you are interested in then start and thread and see if it generates any interest,


Good luck and welcome,

Hi Mercury


Thanks for such a prompt response


I did see the suggestions section, however I thought that was more for amendments to the trading platform than the various education and tips articles


With regard to the US Markets thread I will wander over there and have a look.


Thanks for all your help

Thanks for the heads up


This drop has earned me a few pounds and I am looking for a further drop


I am learning more about alerts and the variuos tools available to us and I hope to take advantage of those when I know more

You can draw your own levels on pro real time


If you use mt4  , you can have these tools made   for around   $500


The ready made ones   are not good  


My own set of custom tools  cost   $5,000     (It saves 1 hours daily and energy   or  250 hours a year)


or get some free ones  on the net  for mt4




The free ones are ok  , but  you need more accurate  and reliable  tools   for drawings

    • Ok, I just hope that you are consequent with your own words and don't get the Covid vaccine or don't wear a mask when you are asked to.  I hope you are not like these folks: https://www.theguardian.com/media/2021/sep/15/fox-news-vaccines-testing-tucker-carlson I know... I know... the guardian... It is not right-win biased.
    • Interesting data from the latest weekly PHE covid report download (as highlighted in the 'UK Vaccination Programme Part 1'. (article linked several posts above)   Attendance to emergency care and deaths from Covid (Delta)   6 months 1 Feb to 29 Aug 2021Unvaxxed     219,716Vaxxed         222,693     (27,993 + 80,877 + 113,823)   So obviously the vaccines do nothing to reduce infection and illness.But when looking at deaths alone the vaxxed are worse off. 68 per cent of covid deaths when including the partially ‘vaccinated’; while the ‘unvaccinated’ made up less than 30 per cent, when the vaxxed are less than 60% of the population.   So the Vaccines don't work they just make things worse. Reminder that when the drug companies said their vaccines had an efficacy of 95% what they meant was the difference between 0.88% (next to nothing) and 0.04% (also next to nothing). But that was against the now extinct Alpha not the now dominant vaccine resistant Delta (and all subsequent variants).   https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1014926/Technical_Briefing_22_21_09_02.pdf
    • The DMA platform is a special download so you would know if you had it. The IG web based platform as used by most clients is as described below.
