Who else has been destroyed?  Any new traders?  Do you now see the impossibility of doing this for a 'living'?

Its been unfathomable ****.....to say the least....Genuine value utterly destroyed, all sense of value gone.......  Oil down 23% in one day !!!!!!    Cable down to a 35 year low.....I remember $1.14 when I was in the dealing room !!!! (in 1986).....I thought I was safe trading €£ but that shifted 3 % in a day  .  Everythiing was sold as traders had to liquidate to cover margin calls...Copper etc particularly but treasuries too.....78% for volatitity !!  

The difference between now and 1987 was that 1987 it was real traders....Yes with fear in the eyes but there was nt programme trading......There were queues for the FAX machine to put orders in to sell ( or buy)....

If there's one thing the rich and powerful genuinely love it's their money.  Do you really think the elite would allow this to happen if there wasn't some kind of rationale or plan behind it?  It's completely out of all proportion to the virus b0llocks.

Trillions of fake dollars/euros have been created and pumped into the system ... who gets 'first dibs' on all this new money?  How long will it take to 'trickle down' to the 99.99%?  Generations to come will be up their eyeballs in debt ... perpetual slaves to the vampire class.

First rule should be to preserve your trading capital so sitting on the sidelines during conditions of  extreme volatility is a valid trading strategy. When a short Wall St position had the stop loss hit a couple of weeks ago due to increased volatility it was time for me to sit, wait and observe until the next valid entry signal occurs.

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
