Hi James

Can you first put your own house in order? Before moderating clients comments here

There is no customer service what so ever at your firm.

I am on the look out for another provider, and will be updating the community shortly. So far they are leagues ahead of what is at IG

I have to say I too am a bit worried by this. God knows there are enough public open access forums and quite frankly they are a bit 'wild west'. With some 19,000 IG clients already signed up to the forum I think the main aim should be to promote new posters and not worry about 'quality' posts but instead encourage simple honest discussion.

Doesn’t bother me if the mods are signing off first. TF, yeh I think that’s a by far fetched. 202925, lol someone’s bitter. 

Maybe happy medium and only allow newbies to post in the new section? 

Yep 247 trader, just really had enough of their customer service and general attitude towards retail clients.

Of course quantity doesn't define if something is good or not but I see no reason to introduce a quality bar, that's more likely to put people off rather than encourage engagement, that's why I would prefer to see any promotion directed toward simple honest discussion. If the forum is light and fresh that's more welcoming and the more worked on, more thought out posts that take longer to produce will come from those who wish to produce it. I like to post anything that interests me, it's quality value is for other's to judge and it's not my worry one way or the other.

Thanks for your input chaps. I have restricted discussion to only adding comments to existing threads for the asset and trade talks, and guests won't be able to start new discussions (apart from allowing new threads on the 'New' section).

As previously stated all comments will need to be signed off before they are posted. If there is an obvious lack of value I shall reject the comment, however hopefully we will see a slight uptick in conversation. 

After a week we can review. There are a number of options we can have (e.g. restrict guests comments to only the 'new' section as mentioned above, or be more stringent in the sign off process). 

I personally think it's worth exploring, however yes - we need to (and will!) keep a very close eye on it. 

As always future comments, feedback and thoughts appreciated.

Another couple went last night. I don’t k ow if politicians leaving on ‘principle’ is something to be commended, however the cynic in me think it’s cowardly and for their own personal gain...

johnson for example. Slippery fish with a PM bid coming in soon?

Lots of outrage on twitter (and in the papers) against May who was against Brexit from the start, complaints of betrayal as the deal really means we stay in the EU but with no voice.

Maybe if all the brexiteers who pushed for and campaigned for it would stop quitting and actuallystep up for once it wouldn’t be quite so bad...

No problem @Caseynotes - for those interested the EMEA brief and video are here. Well worth a watch I think...

With the resignation of two UK cabinet members outside a reshuffle for the first time since 1982, what are the implications for markets of the political uncertainty, and how much longer can Prime Minister Theresa May last? Peter Dixon, global financial economist at Commerzbank, tells IGTV he believes that the high-profile resignations could paradoxically unify May’s Cabinet.

New YouGov poll shows May's 'favourability' sinks to an all time low as leave voters abandon her.

After the resignations the cabinet might be right behind her but rebellion from everywhere else is not far away. There have been rumours today that the 1922 committee have received close on the 48 letters from conservative MPs needed to spark a leadership contest.

    • In this week’s Trading the Trend, Axel Rudolph FSTA looks at the downward trend of the German DAX, going short on the bounce to 12,300, with a stop-loss at 12,940 and a long-term downside target of 11,500. ig        
    • BRITISH POUND TALKING POINTS: GBP/USD was in a difficult spot earlier in September and the problem has continued to devolve. It’s a negative feedback type situation around the UK and the British Pound with a collapsing currency leading to surging bond yields which led to a BoE intervention effort that’s led to more currency collapse. It’s a painful feedback loop that hasn’t yet stopped. Is there hope on the horizon? And is this a problem that will be relegated to the UK, as it has similar hues to problems being seen in Europe and the United States. The current backdrop is messy as bonds and FX are screaming panic and meanwhile, US equities look relatively calm. I discussed this at-length in yesterday’s webinar. The British Pound collapsed last week, or so we thought, only to open our platforms this week to see what a collapse in a major currency actually looked like. GBP/USD has set a fresh all-time-low and perhaps more disturbingly, in the days since, price hasn’t really rebounded much. Sellers are still hitting the pair and now there’s other dislocations that are taking place.   The UK is faced with a similar problem as Europe and the US with extreme inflation. All three Central Banks were rather calm as inflation built through much of last year but this year, as inflation continued to run-higher even after initial tightening efforts, worry started to show given that central bank efforts were not only unsuccessful but also appearing to bring on even more problems.
