Oh I forgot to say ... I have no open positions / trade at all since 30 April 19 so the charges are a mystery ... good job it is my Demo Account!  But worrying and I need to know why nonetheless??

Thank You

Thank you, but I have no positions open nor any new trades since 30 April 19.

I think the charges I am incurring are due to the numerous rogue / phantom / orphan trades that were generated 28 to 30 April 19 when using PRT Platform and Auto-System trading.

If an IG Rep reads this ... how can i get these ongoing excess / erroneous charges deleted from my account please?

As this will be affecting lost of users, a good idea - to save IG time - would be to have a RESET button on the Demo accounts. Then we could reset our own Demo Accounts back to default settings.

I use the increasing (or decreasing! :) ) Funds figure on my IG Account as an easy / quick way to gauge if I am making money. My ongoing incorrect charges are wrecking this useful method!

    • It is a best practice to buy dip and sell high but this strategy mostly doesn’t go as planned because you can’t predict the final bottom. Some traders BTD anticipating a potential pullback which mostly doesn’t happen and this force some into panic selling. DYOR is mostly advisable but some people fail to know which analysis they should focus more on. When deciding to hold a token for a long-term FA is very important and its cardinal point should be thoroughly scrutinized before making such a decision. These points include; Whitepaper, Road map, and Usecase. These points have a huge impact on deciding how long to hold a project and also booast your confidence in the project's bullish potential.  The first principle in this industry is “invest what you can afford to lose" though many neglect this principle as such when a project is going through a price correction they panic sell and sell at a huge lost. Most normal regret their decision later when they see the project back on track. Once you adhere to the first principle you hardly fall victim to panic sales. Note that it is mostly not advisable to hold meme tokens una less you are convinced because meme goes with the hype and finds it hard to retest its ATH once the hype is over.  Anyway what are your trading strategy and principles you adhere to most?
