That's interesting.  I asked the same question (can you short sell real stocks, paying all the money upfront), as it might be an attractive proposition for smaller companies that aren't available to short via CFD (or the spread is ridiculous).  Zero interest, but it sure would be goshdarn cool if you could.  (And I might)

'Paying all the money upfront' - lol actually you get money upfront, but you pay IG the commission etc.

@CharlotteIG can we still do this 😘

With us you can short stock on leveraged accounts but we don't allow clients to do 100% margin (1:1 leverage) .

With the old platform I was able to short stocks but now I am unable and says I have not bought any stocks to sell (long). In short now I can only trade long and not short.

If you're referring to the non-leveraged (share dealing/ ISA) you cannot do this unless you've bought the stock. If it's on a leveraged account it may be that the stock's unborrowable. If you call our dealing desk they will be able to check if we can borrow anymore.

    • Coffee Elliott Wave Analysis Function - Counter-Trend Mode - Correction Structure - Double Zigzag for blue Y Position - Wave C of (B) Direction - Wave C of (B) is still in progress Details - We recounted Coffee on all time frames. However, we expect the commodity to ascend after completing the zigzag wave (B) around the Fibonacci reversal zone of 212.9-203.9. Invalidation level is at 192.30. Coffee Elliott Wave Analysis Overview: In the long term, Coffee prices have been on a bullish run since October 2023. Despite several pullbacks, each previous top has been consistently breached. The last top was made in April 2024 at 245.5, followed by a decline to 192.3 within three weeks, extending to May 7th. Notable recoveries started from there. However, prices have yet to breach 245.5 to confirm the continuation of the bullish sequence from October 2023.   Daily Chart Analysis: Since January 2023, a double zigzag structure has been unfolding. Wave W (circled) finished on April 18th at 245.5, and the corresponding wave X (circled) was completed at 192.3 on May 7th, where wave Y (circled) began. Wave (A) of Y appears to have concluded with the impulse surge to the current peak in June 2024. Prices are now correcting into wave (B). If wave (B) completes above 192.3, buyers should gain the advantage to push prices higher, especially above the 245.5 top.   H4 Chart Analysis: On the H4 chart, wave (B) is subdividing into a zigzag structure, potentially completing around the 212.9-203.9 Fibonacci zone before turning upside in wave (C) above 245.5. Alternatively, prices might move sideways between the 245.5 and 192.3 extremes, suggesting a triangle structure for wave X (circled).   Summary: In conclusion, Coffee prices remain bullish with potential for further gains, contingent on the completion of the current corrective wave (B).

    • I have not tried AI for analysis; it is exciting to me, but unclear. It would be interesting to see some kind of training video with an example of use.
    • Thank you for the in-depth and detailed analysis with the graph.
