Can IG staff see users' account balances and transactions?

I was just thinking, if IG staff spotted users who they thought were performing exceptionally well, could they then mimic those user's actions personally themselves?

Hey - certain teams can see your trade activity (such as the dealing desk, client services so they can assist with dealing questions, and account managers if you have one). Trading on the actions of clients is illegal, and we have a number of automated functions in place to stop this happening. It's worth noting that its highly likely that this is the same for all deal execution brokers and share dealing platforms - I wouldn't be able to see how they could function otherwise!

Have you heard of the A book/B book thing?

They have to hedge all their trades.  If you mainly lose money they can reliably hedge by going in the opposite direction to you, but if you mainly win money they either need to pair you with a 'loser' or trade with you on their own account.  :D

    • ARTFI's mission to make high-value art accessible through fractional ownership and NFTs is a fascinating concept. Let's explore other projects breaking down barriers in the art world and bringing ownership to the masses. ARTFI offers some unique features beyond just fractionalization: Focus on Blue-Chip Art, their concentration on established artists attracts high-net-worth collectors and increases investment potential. Industry Endorsements, supports from prominent figures adds credibility to the platform. So, is ARTFI your one-stop shop for owning a piece of an iconic painting because they are listed on Bitget? Maybe or maybe not. There are other options, and the art market itself is evolving alongside NFTs. What do you think? Is ARTFI a revolutionary force in art ownership, or just a trendy gimmick? Have you explored any other fractional ownership or art-related NFT projects? Share your thoughts in the comments!
    • Mystiko Network like competitors like Omni are promoting interoperability and scalability in the crypto landscape. However, Mystiko is standing out with seamless compatibility with various L1 and L2 blockchains which they have extended to cross-chain bridges, wallets, DEXs, and other dApps. By eliminating blockchain barriers, Mystiko Network allows users to transfer assets and interact with various dApps more easily. This focus on interoperability goes hand-in-hand with scalability. Plus, their ZK SDK allows developers to build secure and private dApps while reducing costs and simplifying cross-chain transactions. It has successfully raised $29.25 million and have forge backing from industry giants like Samsung Next, Coinlist, Hashkey Capital etc... emphasizes it potential and gives it a firm foothold in the interoperability niche. Mystiko is about to hit another milestone as their token XZK is about to be listed on a Tier1 CEX like Bitget further exposing it to investors! Overall, they are ticking the right boxes and I believe they are a project to watch!
