Make sure you're aware of abusive practices anyone else??

Question

Who else got the "Make sure you're aware of abusive practices" email? 

My question is, Why? Is this because of the CEO of Sirius Minerals waging war on Retail traders??

https://www.valuethemarkets.com/2019/10/08/the-shifting-shares-view-sirius-minerals-ceos-bizarre-attack-on-bulletin-board-gamblers-sxx/

Bit confused now, Would like some clarification from IG perhaps please?

Thank f for that! I thought they were threatening me too!! It's like the TV Licencing letters. Thought I was going to prison there for a moment. I wonder if it's people who have held positions in Sirius Minerals in the last few months on the mailing list a few people who I know have IG Index accounts did not get it. 

Anyone from IG Index clarify?

Yes, me too.  They are of course 'championing our trading' by threatening to throw us under the bus to save their own skins.  Very nice people.

Sirius Minerals Chief Executive Chris Fraser has been quoted in The Times as saying that “They [bulletin boards] have these people sitting in their basements in their sweatpants, giving them investment advice — unregulated, unlicensed — and people follow them.”

 

Chris Fraser sounds like a complete **** and I'm sure that's the reason his company is doing badly.

    • 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'
