IG is busy annoying me


Guest MisterK

Question

Guest MisterK

Having traded Oil for £0.25/pt since the margins changed a few weeks ago they have changed the size yesterday to £1/pt WITHOUT any prior notice or communications. I know that I am most probably the smallest fish in their tank but a bit of common decency from them wouldn't go amiss and will be looking at to move my account to a competitor soon.

Cheers

@JamesIG due to personal circumstances I am not allowed to have a Spreadbetting account and can only trade in a CFD account . I have logged a call and had a few emails from IG but nothing has been resolved so far.

I've just checked and can see that you should now be able to get 0.25 of a £1 contract (i.e. the equivalent of 25p per point movement) on both Brent and US Crude oil. 

I believe this should have resolved your issue and brought those minimums back in line. 

EDIT: it also looks like we have resolved the instance of UK clients having EUR contracts on their accounts. Let me know if this isn't the case.

Hi - let me just look into this for you. If any other clients are experiencing this please let me know by adding a comment below.

Put simply, a UK CFD clients shouldn't have access to Euro denominations. Whilst you can change this via the following drop down, there should be consistency between the minimums. We'll investigate this but as above - any additional accounts would be useful. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

    • Hi @eddyed& @Kowal There are many reasons that can result in a stock going on closings only. It also depends on the type pf account you trade in. On leverage accounts, this can be due to the company's market cap changing or other restrictions enforcing IG to offer this on share dealing only. For non-leverage accounts, it can be due to a corporate actions event, market going OTC, etc.  For THG.L, this market is now only offered on share dealing accounts as we have reached our limit on how much we can hold in the market for leverage accounts. It is a business decision and this is reviewed regularly. Therefore you will be able to trade the stocks on a later stage. The best option would be to contact our helpdesk or using this platform to find the reason for the 'Closings only' status.  All the best, OfentseIG

    • Gold, oil and coffee prices drop back Commodity prices received a knock as the dollar strengthened, pushing gold and coffee back from multi-month highs while oil’s decline continued. Source: Bloomberg      Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 03 February 2023  Gold drops back from $1950 Gold’s exuberance was checked on Thursday, with the price reversing from the nine-month high. Perhaps this now points towards a move lower in the short-term that may result in a higher low. For this the price will need to breach $1900, which provided support on Tuesday and earlier in January. A first destination for this would be the $1870 area, followed up by the 50-day simple moving average (SMA). Source: ProRealTime WTI slump pushes lower The price continued to decline on Thursday, falling to a three-week low. It continues to look like a lower high was made in the second half of January around $82 and the 100-day SMA. A continued decline, backed up by a falling daily MACD, suggests a move back to the January low at $73.40 and then on to the December low just above $70 is now possible. A reversal back above $79 would be needed to suggest another attempt to clear the 100-day SMA and then the $82 level is developing. Source: ProRealTime Coffee weakens after big run higher Coffee’s huge rally off the January lows suffered a severe check this week, though the price is holding above the 200-day SMA for now. This may be the lower high that sellers have been looking for, if they think that the post-December 2021 downtrend is still intact, a view supported by the declining 200-day SMA. A similar bounce in July and August then reversed course, which might provide a hope of a new decline. Additional gains would target 2160, and then to 2300+, the August 2022 peak. Source: ProRealTime
