I'm sitting on a massive loss in my long gold position.  Can this cliff edge really be attributable to just margin calls?

If it's going to find support it has to be around about here;

Daily.

How massive?

If it's manageable then ride it out.  You don't day trade gold, you keep hold of it for a while.

@Caseynotes I agree it should find support here and was thinking of adding but I don't think I'll use my short term trading account if I add

@dmedinIt is manageable and in my trading rather than investing account.  

However, what worries me is can such a large selloff be due to margin calls alone or is there a change in the fundamentals?

Quite possibly.  At times like these it becomes  clear to all that gold is a 'barbarous relic' and means f-all in terms of corresponding to the real needs of human beings.

Gold sell-off fails to dent investor enthusiasm - https://www.ft.com/content/84f50eea-1eaa-4e88-9040-16f1944978f7 

Investor sentiment on IG showed a bearish signal. With so many people long and thinking the same way, do all the longs have to be pummeled before the Phoenix rises from the ashes?!

If you never had a long position and saw the gold chart, would you rate it a buy?

Who cares?

Prices go up and down randomly and people (hence markets) are totally irrational.

Have a punt, if you like.  Just don't go looking for a rational explanation - it's all speculation. :)

😂 Perhaps I can swap a bottle of hand sanitiser and antibacterial soap for a gold bar?!

 

So you reckon it's all gambling then?

Gold market is now closed to opening.  Everyone is long, and everyone is right - so no one else is allowed to get in on the action.

Thankfully, I already had two calls  😻

Gold was having liquidity issues. As soon as the underlying is liquid again it will be reopened. If it's open whist illiquid the price will be gaping up and down. People may get closed out on stops that are very far our which is something we don't see as best execution. 

All the best.

    • I call it a wash and rinse - it happens often at swing lows and swing highs, as they are the obvious place for stops to be placed at, the "science" of the markets means that these places are often hit because of what the market HAS to do to move.    
    • No the share dealing account is subject to tax. You will need to make a seperate application for an ISA and it will appear.
    • Hello, my 2 pence worth, On markets like the FTSE it would be good to have an option to switch off the simulated candles, I.e only between 0800 and 1630 being displayed.  The trading out of hours is not for me and I find it quite tiresome having to trawl through the charts of simulated candles. Second pence worth, When IG tv launches it brings up a box over the deal ticket and has on numerous occasions caused me to miss the moment to place trade, Same when a trade is closed due to hitting limits or stop losses. I either have to manually  click on the X to close before I place a trade. Really really frustrating. Apart from this I am happy with IG and the service I have received to date. I am not on IG's payroll lol
