New share dealing platform

Recommended Posts

Is there likely to be an update to the share dealing platform to bring it in line with the the spread betting and CFD platform, I worry that IG don't value their share dealing arm of the business as much as the CFD and spread bet which is a shame as their share dealing is top-drawer.

I somewhat agree. I would like to see better coordination amongst all the accounts so that I can switch easily between them. At the moment I have to use subterfuge and multiple logins to monitor spread betting, ISA and share platforms visible simultaneously and the differences in the platforms adds to the confusion.

We're hoping to roll the new share dealing account out beginning of February. This will have a similar layout to the new Spread betting and CFD accounts you see today. :)

We're not offering calls and puts on non-leveraged accounts. When you buy calls/ puts they have limited risk on the leveraged platforms.

Yes, call options are a great idea for that reason.

Would love to see call options available for everything on the leveraged platform :)

The downside to you is less money on commissions, right?  As people aren't getting stopped out by those stupid spikes.

With all market, except CFD equity options, we still take spread so we would happily have clients trade options With CFD equity options we charge commission. 

The reason we don't offer it for every market is there's not as much demand and we have to buy/ sell these in the underlying every time someone trades. Meaning, if it's something that hardly anyone is buying we would have to go out a buy/ sell very small positions.

Hi Charlotte,

The new Share dealing account looks outstanding, but missing a vital risk management tool that the CFD and Spreadbetting accounts have, Stop Losses.

Please could you feedback to the Development team of the Share desk and kindly ask if possible to add this important feature to this account? Has this already been raised from other traders hence already in the pipeline to roll it out pretty soon?

 

Many thanks,

Denis

    • This week is a crucial week for US indices I think especially end of the week. If we are going to see extreme Dow soon, the market will let us know.  The volatility is expected to pick up so money can probably be made in both directions with 1000+ points move again. I personally would not go long for a couple days. There are positions trapped right now going long from last week so I would guess some will be forced to endure some pain, unless they volunteer to take losses.
    • If it moves below $5k to maybe $4k again, it doesn't look like there is a great deal of support. Sure it can double in a short span of time but don't you think this is a very risky trade?
    • as explained earlier in the thread the cumulative risk reward ratio (auto calc'd on a spread sheet) plotted on the chart with the win rate is absolutely fool proof in revealing if a strategy is profitable of not. Also if you make any changes to the strategy the result will show up quickly in the stats so revealing whether the change was advantageous or not. Without hard statistics people have a habit of misleading themselves as to how well they and their strategy are really doing.
