Hi @ddddd,  it's likely to be down to IG not taking trades when a market is small and illiquid, sometimes the underlying market may be too small but the derivative (leveraged) market, which is always larger, remains large enough to continue to be offered.

Unfortunately we have recently removed Cannabis stock from the Share dealing platform. This was on the back of a review of the regulatory and political implications of offering Cannabis stocks in the UK with a recreational link. You can therefore only trade this on a leverage account which is a derivative and hedged via swaps.

    • I think that was in reference to the different strategies as in a mean reversion system with smaller targets needs more trades than a trend following system that is longer term.
    • 'Trading only 50 times a year limits your P&L' 'Trading 500 times a year lets you exploit your edge' Pretty much goes against all professional wisdom on the subject of trading.  'The more you trade, the more you lose.'
    • Just listened to the Jack Schwagger podcast.  Typical BS: Stick to the rules and be disciplined! Except when it stops working - then change the rules! Know the market!  Limit your losses!  Analyse every trade - that will help prevent you losing!  But everyone loses throughout their career!  It's all about losing less frequently!  Blah blah blah ... In other words, 'To hell with this ... I'm going to get rich by writing a book instead'
