Level 2



I am wondering:-

(i) if the "Level 2" facility with IG is similar to that of ADVFN. For example, does the IG facility provide live individual buy/sell transactions showing the size of each such transaction. 

(ii) if the facility reverts to zero charge if a given number of trades are dealt each month.

Further to the above, if possible, I would welcome any additional insight commentary regarding IG's "Level 2" facility and whether or not it may be advisable to use a standalone service, such as ADVFN, that is separate from the trading platform.

Thanks in advance.

You're going to want to have a look at https://www.ig.com/uk/l2-trading-platform which will be the best solution for you. You can then get insight into time and sales etc as you requested. If you do a certain number of a trades then the Level 2 data will be rebated. 

When it comes to you last point - I'll leave that down to other community members to debate :)

@Petruchia.  And also download the pdf 'L2 Dealer Manual' from the page linked in James' post above, most informative.

Would be worthwhile updating the manual for L2 dealer it was last updated in August 2014.  A lot of features are no longer present and new ones are not explained.    https://a.c-dn.net/c/content/dam/publicsites/1439568973395/igcom/uk/files/other/CFD/ig_cfd_l2_dealer_manual.pdf

thanks for the feedback - I've raised this to our tech support and client facing teams to review.

    • Potential resistance break in play, bit more to go to be confirmed but the technicals are supportive.  A strong breakout here will align to my road map that targets a retrace rally to about the $80 mark.

    • Price is declining. Trend is changing.  You cannot sell this market to open is still IG's mantra. There is little doubt that Beyond Meat attracted speculative capital. There is no doubt that Beyond Meat's valuation was absurd on any metric. I would like someone to convince me otherwise. I mean it is a loss making company which is not any closer to profitability yet the valuation was insane.  Just imagine if Beyond Meat could be shorted! What do you think would happen to the price? Hmmmm!
