i do not understand why IG has stops so far from market when they are not guaranteed 


why is the ripple stop a minimum of 5 points  which equates to 17% ? 


ridiculous and unhelpful

Hey thanks for the feedback - a 5 point stop distance on a market at about 83 equates to about 6% which I double checked with the desk. They confirmed that given the volatility in the crypto markets and the propensity to spike, they believe it to be a rational distance. Please let me know if there is anything else I can assist on.

ahh shocking maths on my behalf 



but these are non guaranteed stops so why does IG care ?


or why should it  (obviously it does thus it must have risk it is running, and thus markets wont be fair )


if market spikes 6% then my stop is triggered and i get whatever price IG gives me .. obviously near the top of the move 


otherwise in normal market conditions the stop will be triggered


as always IG wants to have the cake and eat it

    • Hi all. I have a chunk of cash sitting around and don't really want to allocate it to equities or anything too risky so I was hoping to pick up some regular coupons from something like non-junk bond. I've tried to find bonds on my ISA or Share Dealing account but they don't really seem to exist. I can't find bonds nor ETFs of bonds...  Also can someone help me to understand - like I don't want to bet on the value of bonds or rates going up. I only care about dumping cash in bonds and receiving regular coupons. I understand that the prices of bonds go up and down and therefore you may make a gain/loss on your principal if you sell before maturity, but I kinda want a low-risk bond and want to hold it to maturity. Or at least something that has that kind of risk-reward profile.
