Digital 100s

Recommended Posts

Today I've been forced over to the new platform - I'm in Australia.


A question - or observation - there are no range Digital 100s (10pt range, 25pt range)  It is hard to believe that you'd be shooting yourself in the foot like that, especially after the recent ESMA ruling.  


Second - a practical suggestion - allow a filter for the Digital 100s by index (eg ASX 200, Wall St).

Still on the old platform here in UK, not my field and I may have missed something but the difference in presentation between the old and new seems significant.

Hi Caseynotes - brilliant - that says everything.  


I miss the old already...

  Just a quick check, when they move the IG open page to the new platform dashboard they hide the access to the old platform in a drop down box on the 'Open New Platform' blue box. They still haven't moved options to the new platform yet so the old platform should still be available.

Hi   Thanks for that - I did a bit of investigating and I see the same thing for my CFD account.  There is a red dot that seems to be glowing at the top right corner of a similar "open new platform" button.  I can open the old as you show.  


I remember an email a while ago saying we were going to be transitioned.  I can adapt to the new of course, and it may have better features, yet why cull the binaries?  


I would have thought IG would find them (range) the most profitable, as they are easy to muck up (as a trader).  Anyway - feedback given.  Thanks for your help too.  Cheers.

Thanks for the feedback chaps. Just to clarify, once you click on the binary specifically you can add to workspace / select your time frame / view all the different strikes down the right hand side (as shown in blue selected 33.1 bid). You can also filter as you suggested by indices (or commodities or FX) and your time frame. 


Hopefully this answers your queries and feedback? Or is there any additional info you would like me to pass back? 


On a side note there will be a time when the classic platform is turned off completely, and I would therefore recommend to maybe keep trying the new platform every so often / setting some time aside to set up a work space and maybe force yourself to use it for x number of days. Hopefully you'll notice the improvements, although I do appreciate that a whole new UX / UI is a big deal. 


All the best.

    • 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. 😉
