Inverse ETFs on Spread Betting account

Recommended Posts

I'm interested in trading Oil/Natural gas and would like a use of inverse ETFs such as UGAZ,DGAZ, UWT, DWT. 

While trying to open position on a demo account I get this message - This market is only for closing deals.

Can someone shed some light, thanks.

Hi, you generally get this on markets where IG decides there is not enough client participation to justify keeping the asset listed or the liquidity is so low matching trades is too difficult. For a company it might be because it's market cap has slipped below IG's minimum required.

Not sure this same notice has just been slapped on the China 300 index though.

Thing is, inverse ETFs for gold (JDST and JNUG) are open for trading as I can place trades, it's just the Oil/Gas ones that are not and they are the ones I'm the most interested as I don't like going shorting ETFs and would rather go long.

    • I have finally got over that psychology issue. I never move stops now except  the odd time in the direction of the trade, to lock in profits (BE). I never risk more that 0.5% on a trade and keep risk /reward to about   1:1.5 I have read a heck of a lot now and follow accepted advice. 20 trades , same strategy , sensible stop say at 1 - 1.5  ATR / 1 BB  or a obvious support and resistance line I don't revenge trade, never get over confident ,screenshot every trade  and keep a detailed log and analyse every trade with notes.  *** HOWEVER The problem is quite simple,   its just not working, I am on a 5th loss in a row on MACD and 200MA , trading in the direction of the trend, using multiple time frames       looking at my logs I tend to agree with this now. I get the initial direction right more that 50% of the time but once i passes the 1:1 , the odds decline rapidly I would only move a stop if the trade moved rapidly, Like a manual trailing stop.  
    • Dropping a short every 15 points could be a good strategy 😜👌 profit takers can’t help them selves lol 😂
