  3. I had the same question a while ago which I asked IG about and got the same answer as what @JakubIG said. And I can say from experience that it is what happens. Trades in your ISA account and ordinary share dealing account both count towards your monthly and quarterly trading figures.

  4. Hi all @Navarone @Phrilly @nmase88 @Tcs106 @ShareRover , First of all I would like to apologize for the incorrect ETA on the above. UK update: The statements team and Head of Share Dealing has confirmed that the statements are expected to be released before the end of next week however there is an expectation that this will be done earlier this week. The reason for the delay is that we are ultimating the due checks in order to make sure that the released data is correct. If an error is found, this delays the process. As I mentioned earlier there is a high expectation that all the CTC will be released by the end of the next week which means that they might be released also this week. AU update: The financial year has just ended in Australia. I will post an update in the following days in regards to your CTC. I hope this helps and once again I would like to apologize for the misleading info. There is a project in order to speed up the whole process and from the next year this will be improved. Thanks, Jakub

  5. Rather than posting a randomised chart you could just have posted it in chronological order, or would that not fit your narrative?

  6. Hello, The stop market order is not available on stocks which are bought/sold through RSP quotes (Market Maker stocks). All the stocks you have mentioned are Market Maker stocks and they don't support Stop market orders. Before making purchases, you can always check in the deal ticket if the market order on Exchange is available. If that's not the case (as in the example below) you won't be able to use Stop Market orders. I hope this helps!

  7. I remember the BBC reporting in front of world trade building 7 saying it had collapsed when it was clearly still standing and then hours later it "suddenly" collapsed - Sept 11th 2001 David Icke did a great publication on that "terrorist attack" which lead to UK/USA forces invading Iraq and afghanistan, along with implementing onerous checks at all airports since - 20 years later we still haven't had another plane hijacked and crashed into anything, probably because if it had it would prove that aviation fuel can't melt steel structural joists, or bring a building down in a vertical fashion as per a controlled explosion I'm yet to be convinced on Covid, but it absolutely fits in with the totalitarian tiptoe Icke says is happening and fits in being an absolute valid reason to vaccinate the entire globe

  8. IG, I hope one of your team please reads and replies to this. Your customer service is shockingly bad. I sent an email to the help desk on 12 July concerning a missing dividend (due in my dealing account on 24 June) and a follow up email on 19 July - but still no reply apart from the usual auto-respond saying we'll reply 'as soon as possible.' You are a highly profitable FTSE 250 company and this is not the first time that I've had no response. Please invest in some more staff and have the courtesy to let me know that my query is actually being dealt with. If I hear nothing within 5 working days from today, I will start the formal complaint procedure including, if necessary, referring to the financial ombudsman.

  9. Hi @Marcraffard It is a good thing you did your research, it is one key tool for trading. With the research you have done, as a trader you will get a better understanding why the market is moving in a certain way, while at the same time you will be able to anticipate these moves when such announcements happen again in future. All the best - MongiIG

  10. I would only trade one of them if they are similar and you might have to think about doubling up on risk so risking 4% instead of 2 etc - say you trade 2 separate markets each 2% risk and both lost, you lose 4% if they both move similar then to cut down on work/analysis etc its fine to risk 4% on just your preferred market

  11. Sorry THT, its me again! Following your posts with interest obviously. Just wanted to break down that last swing low a bit more. The R values you quote are of course dependent on your initial distance to you stop loss which if its only 10-15 points could be very high. I think the key thing i wanted to mention is that you obviously didn't have your stop at the swing low point on Monday 19th and wondered why you felt confident to have it higher. But this is the sort of thing that can make the difference between someone quoting 3R vs 8R. I assume as the market moved up through 50% and your order executed you then placed the stop once the market had chance to move above your entry, perhaps after some defined time period. I was trading the DAX which unfortunately was not as bullish but managed 2.5R+

  17. Hi, thank you for you reply. I thought I came back here to asnwer my own question shortly after i posted it. Somehow 'P' brought it all back. It's something I've experienced a few times over 2.5 years but never actually realised that pressing 'P' removes them. Clearly my mistake. Thanks again.

  20. Yeah well that's a far off pipe dream for me and most probably looking at the statistics, just trying to do better than index tracking investment at this stage, so far its paying off. Couldn't ever see me having the ability, confidence, constitution or whatever is needed to give up the day job for this.

  21. Hi @Krishan, The 3 trades apply to both ISA and Share Dealing accounts. This means that you can perform 1 buy and 1 sell on ISA and 1 buy on Share Dealing for example. Thanks, Jakub

  22. Hey @petertrotter, Unfortunately we don't offer Smart Portfolios for people living in Australia, only share trading for non leveraged accounts: https://www.ig.com/au/share-trading However, I will pass this on as feedback to our development team to see if we can add this account type for Australia in the future. All the best and apologies for the inconvenience.

  23. Hi THT, Thanks for the post as ever, I sometimes struggle to relate what you say in the text back to where this refers to on the chart. So what i mention below you might not have talked about at all. I've added your chart but i wondered how you handle the smaller up swings, i have highlighted one in blue on the chart below. I can't see more of the historic chart perhaps this low hits prior support but its not visible so would you just not trade this swing. I don't have more insight than when the market does turn try to get in early, maybe it comes to something maybe not and then i might have a target that is the previous high labelled 2 in red on your chart but as you can see it didn't make it. So either you trail your stop up and you got a small profit or you don't and you hopefully take a small loss.. You then wait for the next swing low which did find support at the prior low i have highlighted in blue. but again it did not reach the former high at 2 at least in the data shown so you would need to trail a stop and not rely on hitting the target.

  28. Yesterday the totalitarian globalists (in this case the Biden administration) said they wanted to see that when someone is banned from one social media platform they should automatically be banned from them all. A while back I followed a twitter account that simply posted a chart of a country's vaccine rollout next to a same time frame chart of their covid cases. The charts were from common websites used by all. They got to around 35 that showed a rise in cases matching a rise in number vaccinated before being banned. The facts didn't fit the narrative. You have a grandstand seat watching the death of free speech in western democracies, enjoy the view. I know that happened in the UK because I posted a similar comparison at the time on the renamed 'covid and the economy' thread. I bring this up now because there is another account about to get banned because it is using internet charts to show that countries that have the highest vaxxed ratio also have the highest number of cases while the countries with the lowest vaxxed ratio have the lowest number of cases. πŸ€” Now I'm no vax expert but I'm fairly certain it's suppose to be the other way round. Many people are not turning up for the second shot after bad reactions to the first and many young people are not turning up at all. This will not be tolerated so currently there is a big push to blame the unvaxxed for all the new cases as an excuse to make the clot shots mandatory for all. That's in spite of the fact that it's already been admitted that the vaxxed can and do catch covid and pass it on, that's the whole excuse for the the up-coming round of booster shots after all. The fact that none of this makes any sense at all is because it's not meant to. If you're still not sure why, - I repost this vid link. https://youtu.be/fdzW-S8MwbI Below is a European comparison but it's a similar story globally. .

  29. Hi @JakubIG, On Wednesday (last week), you provided explanation to Cash and Future, which I replied by asking the following: With what you said last Wednesday (above) Now, you are saying the the following: "The value of the ASX 200 Index will be close to the ASX 200 Cash contract. " Why is that in relation to what you said above, where you said ASX 200 " Future" coming directly from the exchange (ASX 200 Index value) and ASX 200 "Cash" is derived from Future (and from Bloomberg) ? As now you are saying "ASX 200 Index value" is more or less closer to "ASX 200 Cash"? I am sorry as it looks like confusion remains, as I am just unable to match between what you said last Wednesday and just now. As we have spent too much time here to discuss the value of "ASX 200 Index", "ASX 200 Cash" and "ASX 200 Future", though I am still confused in terms of their relationship with what you said between now and then, I am sort of getting to note that these values are all different and, fundamentally, you have pointed out the important points below, which I appreciated: 1) ASX 200 Index is not tradable 2) ASX 200 Cash is for trade on IG and it can incur overnight funding costs when applicable (I observe IG spread from 1 point to 4 points in different trading sessions, with no expiry; overnight funding costs for entire weekend may incur also, if the Friday cutoff time is lapsed with any outstanding position carried over) 3) ASX 200 Future is for trade on IG and it will not incur overnight funding costs (I observe IG spread 7 points with expiry, however it seems that there is no modelling support for "ASX 200 Future" trading data analysis by PRT tooling, which only covers the "ASX 200 Cash", which is a shame) Though I am still confused with what you said in the relationship among these figures, I think it is not a big deal in this Forum. I think other folks may have already understood and would not be too fussed on this. I am ok to move on, and thank you very much for your help @JakubIG and @Caseynotes, as always.

  32. just to help try and clarify, the prices on the IG welcome page are IG's cash prices so is same in the 2 side by side pics. The cash and the futures are 2 separate markets, cash is designed for short duration hold and the futures for longer term and so both have different spreads and therefore different prices. The ASX exchange price (the underlying market IG derives it's futures price on) can be found on the ASX exchange web site but remember you can't trade directly on the exchange, you need to go through a broker who will add their spread so the prices between the exchange and the broker will be different. hope this helps.

  36. i'm one of "those types" too.. thinking there are "absolutes" in trading is dangerous.. a lot of hedge funds thought there was absolutely no way a rapidly-sinking dinosaur like Gamestop would hit even $20 - never mind $60... a few weeks later it was $350.. I didn't read a word of your original posts btw - nothing personal, i just don't consume trade ideas at all, anywhere.

  37. Probably also affected by seeing friends and family dying or suffering from long Covid. Seeing a pandemic sweeping across the world and killing millions doesn't help with my anxiety, regardless of any advertising campaign. Maybe because Britain is looking like a laughing stock to the rest of the world as it gears up to open up while cases and variants run rampant?

  42. From farce to insanity to pure evil. THEY will not stop. STOP TESTING ASYMPTOMATIC PEOPLE A positive test is meaningless. Asymptomatic means healthy. WHO recommends against random PCR testing of asymptomatic people Recommendations for national SARS-CoV-2 testing strategies and diagnostic capacities (who.int) YOU DO NOT NEED ANNUAL JABS FOR A DISEASE WHEN IMMUNITY IS ALREADY AT 86%+ Sajid Javid @sajidjavid 'Our vaccine rollout is saving lives and protecting our country. I welcome today’s interim advice from the JCVI. We are planning for a vaccine booster campaign to start in September which will help keep the virus at bay.' Big Pharma wants mandatory yearly injections for everyone forever. A lot of people are making a lot of money and don't want that to stop. (Govt 'The Health Protection Regulations' lowers the official est IFR gets closer to reality, 1.7% down to 0.5%) SAGE IS THE ENEMY Professor Stephen Reicher is doing the interview rounds to say that we can't rely on the vaccine, as part of coordinated SAGE lobbying for permanent masks & distancing. The June 3rd wave SAGE models were completely wrong - again, time for a fresh batch? "Research shows that 53% of girls and 44% of boys aged 13 to 18 were found to be suffering from trauma or PTSD in the months after the first lockdown. 60% of boys and 50% of girls of the same age were classed as suffering from anxiety."

  47. This is completely untrue. I've been trading with IG for over a year as a top trader here on the platform and I have no issues. You can see your profit/loss and a chart from day one. The only thing you won't see on the platform while you trade a specific trade is the commissions and cost of borrowing, but those are quite easy to calculate yourself. For example, if you buy 1000 shares of AAPL at 100 and sell at 120 you need to account for $20 each way of commissions and the cost of borrowing before being able to calculate your profit. Those are separate fees, if you trade pennies of course you will end up with a loss because of the fee even if you closed the trade green on the platform. This is normal and I like it better than having your average cost moving up every single day !

On the spread betting and CFD accounts, there IS the ability to set a "A trailing stop". However this feature is NOT available on the share dealing Platform. Please correct this error and let me set a "A trailing stop" on my shares, thank you, Kind regards, Chris Shayler
