  3. All of my Stop Orders have been cancelled on my ISA account by IG before market opening and I cannot reinstate them. when I confirm the order I recieve a message "The market you have requested is no longer available online". The order is on WPP they have a market cap of £10bil, so not a small AIM company!

  4. Hi, No you can only Buy and Sell shares using the Share Dealing platform. you cannot Demo Share Dealing, However, I assure you, it's the same as CFD or Spread Betting, except it costs you to Buy and Sell but the Spreads are Tighter. I Trade Shares now instead of Spread Betting. The Spreads on Small Cap stock made it impossible to Day Trade. Of course there are downsides such as Tax, but you gotta make a profit first!

  5. hahahaha Spanish is your mother tongue yet you had to look through trying to match the figures in the pictures FFS. You really are a total spoon. 'Unlucky to have you around'?? but you always run away and hide after pretending the thread contains nothing but memes, I can see why now, you can't actually read scientific data no matter what language it in hahahaha. Anyway, here is the original poster (who can actually speak Spanish). The whole thread is very interesting, there's also some great stuff on how masks have been shown to increase

  7. Glad to see the torch of conspiracy burning bright on this forum. Can only speak from a personal and local perspective regarding the virus. I can tell you that the hospital admissions related to Covid in our local hospital has gone from negligible (9 patients on December 3rd) to 19 less than a week later to 60 a week after that to over 200 last week. Numbers are available on the NHS website. I have no other information as I haven't seen my friend since we went into Tier 4, who works in admissions at the hospital for confirmation of said numbers. I occasionally text him but he prefers face to

  8. The PCR testing explosion of false positives came about with the introduction of the mass testing of asymptomatics, previously testing was confined to those turning up at hospital with symptoms. I refer you to that podcast posted recently with the Harvard professor who explains very concisely that if you have any trace remnant of old, dead viral RNA, that can be retained in the body for many months, then you will PCR test +ve and automatically be classed as 'with' covid and therefore infectious when, for the majority this is simply not the case. Sorry to hear of your unwell relative.

  9. Can anyone shed light on what the volatility index on IG tracks? It doesn't seem to track the classic VIX index, neither those that are a few weeks or months out. I figured it may be an average of say the first and second month VIX futures, but can someone clarify what the underlying is? Thanks!

  10. I am trying to set stop working order in my existing ETFs in ISA at 10.46AM UK time, but I am getting "MARKET NOT AVAILABLE ONLINE" error. On top of it the stop order I put on these ETFs like PCT. All removed and I am not able to put it again. Can you please let me know what is the issue.

  11. We're offering weekly equity options on the platform for some stocks over earning season. Meaning you don't have to call us if you want to trade certain equity options. This week it's Netflix. We're also offering Tesla but that will stay on the platform going forward whereas the weekly options will change depending on which week of earnings season we're in. What is an Equity option? Equity options are a form of derivative used exclusively to trade shares as the underlying asset. In essence, equity options work in an extremely similar way to other options, such as forex o

  12. Hi JLZ You need to investigate the company issuing the said ETP's - There's lots of different ones out there, some buy real assets, so use "synthetic" tracking etc - they are 100% legit but you have to be certain they won't go bust Key considerations as you are investing real money into the ETP are: Is the ETP safe in terms of going bust Is you ISA/SIPP/DEALING account provider safe I've traded these products for decades - as long as the ETP provider does not go bust then normal investing/trading risks apply - I've just literally this afternoon taken profits on a Na

  14. once again you're not really saying anything, just the usual waffling. I'll answer my question for you seeing as you can't or won't. Yes they were by the PCR so many were misdiagnosed not that it really matters because any real pandemic will cause more excess deaths and that's not happening except where there was appalling mismanagement such as the UK that shutdown it's health service to everything other than covid. Govt minister details exactly how accurate the PCR test is ... (short clip 1 min).

  15. Hi guys, It's forecast and yearly strategy time. Well I'm a tad late really. What does 2021 hold regarding finance, commodities and indices? Personal strategy for 2021 is obviously to not lose money, where possible. Being predominantly an Oil and gasoline trader, I shall start with that. Global stocks and supplies are just about balanced as of now with slight imbalance in US as Covid effects continue to stall demand in key states. However, OPEC+ seem to have their communal act together and are actually acting in unison regarding supply. Naturally, this has increased

  16. So many "multi level marketing" people, scammers... they go to their bank (or mom and dad) and get a lot of money. Then they go to a car rental (or even private jet rental) and take some photos. What they want is you to follow them on YouTube/Instagram so the platform can feed you ads so they get money when you click on ads.

  17. Thank you for your reply Charlotte. I have sent an email to IG's help desk, and now I am just waiting for their reply. Hopefully they will active my account. O by the way I am ready to provide them an additional details if they need to, they only have to let me know what they want exactly. Thank you

  18. Listen Trading is really really hard but the SIMPLEST systems probably work best - in this game being smart or ultra clever is a hindrance I've been EXACTLY where you're at right now - you need to remember ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING has already been thought of, tried and tested - absolutely everything There's one big positive here - at least you're thinking, most don't even do that Re the NEW MOON method - I made the rules up in about 5 seconds - so I have not nor will I back test to see if more optimum stop money management placement would be better - I think over the past 10 years

  22. I wouldn't say it is all fake, the PCR test worked fine when it was only used on symptomatic people but fell apart (as they should have known it would) when used for mass testing of asymptomatic people. That, along with the suppression of other treatments that have been shown to be affective, as well as the pretence that there is no longer any such thing as herd immunity has meant a forced wait for vaccines. The 2 biggest winners as a result are big govt taking unprecedented powers and big pharma taking unprecedented profits. The WHO have shown themselves to be in China's pocket

  23. Some of the above is ultra advanced stuff and I bet 99% of people out there aren't aware of it and more to the fact how it's derived - Do not let that stop you, you don't need to know the advanced stuff to trade profitably and consistently I don't 100% understand markets - I can't tell you what price level a market will stop at - I've yet to meet anyone that can say markets going to hit this exact level then reverse x points and then........ It cannot be done exactly and due to that issue trading and Investment becomes best guess and probabilities take control of things In trading if

  24. Hi, folks. I'm late to the party again. For 20 years I've been talking about The New World Order. The Cashless Society and the RFID system. Add to this Population Control and you come to The World Economic Forum, Davos and centralised global Crypto Currency. Assume nothing here but a Hostile Takeover of our Land and Peoples; Capital Destruction by design. We are literally, before our very eyes becoming Digital Slaves of the 4th Industrial revolution; the Technocratic era has begun. Mark these words if it's the 1st time you've heard them.

  25. and my 2 mates said it was just like a normal flu 🤔 anyway, German data says you have a only 5 out of 10,000 chance of dying of Covid if you are under 70 years of age. 2 questions, how would you ever know if the vaccine was effective, 4 deaths every 10,000? the numbers are so small as to be statistically insignificant. And what about the very real possibility the vaccine will have a lower survival rate than the disease? 🤔

  26. as usual there is no attempt to contradict the ton of govt data and published research material that shows that these measures simply do not work, best just to pretend it's not there and so keep your bbc bias intact.

  27. The big boys promote stuff to the public and are most likely the professionals providing the supply so be careful of that fact - Even old Warren Buffett bigged up Silver years ago whilst he was dumping his holding! I'm not a fundamental Investor - Here's my thoughts from a slightly differing angle that may help you: EVERY market works out to cycles, I can't work out Golds cycles because it was only freely traded since 1970's and I need decades of price data to accurately pick out the dominant cycles, BUT...... I do have the stock market and UK Bank of England Base Rate price dat

  31. Never see anyone asking the MSM for their official sources do you... 🐂🦮 No one questioning why we never hear about the R number anymore... Nor the death rate.. First was deaths.. then R number.. then rate of transmission.. and now it's some super intelligent mutant virus... Actual scientists with integrity will support that when an entity mutates, it does so not in an advantageous manner. It is abundantly clear that the majority of people feel safer when stripped of their freedoms. 🐑

  32. It's not science if it can't be proved wrong if it is wrong. That's how it works. YOU linked the weekly death stats from ONS for 2020, the first chart uses the weekly stats from ONS for 2020. Here's a tip, find the correct data set from the different sets list in the spreadsheet you already have in front of you and check that the data points match/or not on the chart. (weekly death report). FFS how hard can that be??? Do the same for the ONS 2019 data. That's it. But no, pushing to get cancelled what you don't like the sound of is much easier. ABSOLUTELY ****

  34. increase in covid labelled cases were not leading to increased hospital admissions and deaths, as stated previously they did in the first wave but not this second (fake) wave. The current increase happens every year at this time and the numbers are in line with previous years so blatantly nothing to do with covid, if it was related to covid cases the numbers would above the average not below it. The chart did indeed dispel the fake news that covid patients were overwhelming ICU, they just weren't. I gave you feedback, your own linked data showed you were wrong in your conclusions.

  35. This is just admissions via A&E. Most hospital admissions do not come via A&E. In the same report COVID-19 admissions towards end of Dec. via A&E are approx. 300 per day https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/948470/EDSSSBulletin2020wk52.pdf However, overall hospital admission for COVID-19 around the same time are around 3000 per day: https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/healthcare Therefore A&E admissions are accounting for only 10% of COVID-19 total hospital admissions. It is incorrect t

  36. take a look at the Prorealcode website, It's a page dedicated to building indicators and screeners for Prorealtime. It's certainly more advanced then the generic screener that Tradingview offer.

  37. Thanks THT, I'm looking for a scan that scans the whole stock market (for example a crossover on any FTSE100 company on 5 min chart), rather than scans what you set up to scan on your system - I will be there til next year doing that. Does ProRealTime allow for this generic type searching / scanning / screening?

  41. And so we gently slip from farce into a surreal dystopia ... ''A ‘new variant’ which was known about in September and no evidence it is any more infectious than older strains. The govt lest we forget, removed Covid19 from its High Consequence Infectious Diseases list in March! So quit with the BS please Mr Clarke.''

  48. Hi Yes, that's what I think. I have seen a few traders who use youtube etc and they can bet smaller. How can IG grow their customers when the new rules come into force. Smaller bet size will allow them to learn on a smaller account.
