In this event, if the entire system comes to a halt, does anyone have an idea

of how any open trades will be treated? Is there any precedent?

Hey, thanks for your post. 

This hasn't happened yet so I wouldn't be able to say what IG would do. But, with limit down/ up restrictions we've kept the positions open until the market reopened. 

If this were to happen we will inform clients of our actions.

lol!  You will be told what to do by your superiors and anyone who resists will be 'detained' ...

Wake up people ... the stock market is moving in one direction only and it's a matter of time before it gets closed down ...

    • Sorry, I didn't get it... What's Dual investment? 
    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
