  1. 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!

  2. 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

  4. 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

  5. Can I trade share options with IG? This question has been popping up around the community. Yes, you can trade a range of share options with us. Select popular stocks are available to trade on our web platform, and our full range is available to trade by phone. Can I trade share options online, or do I have to phone to deal? That depends on which markets you’d like to trade. We are testing online trading for share options, and to start off with we’re offering Tesla shares (weekly and monthly expiries). Over the coming weeks we hope to expand this

  6. 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

  7. Hi, on third party platforms (tradingview, prorealtime) you can change the time zone and thereby the candle close to any you want but a broker's has a fixed time zone and candle close which is based on the hours their markets are open.

  8. As usual, interesting and informative. In response to the question "Who gains", would the response be China? They have certainly cleaned up in the Oil markets (mostly). Their economy has thrived where all others have failed. Honk Kong has been effectively silenced. However, one must temper such rash conclusions with more sustained research. It is true the Dragon(China) has awoken and it's only foil; the Eagle (America) is eating itself, much to the Dragons amusement. The virus is also highly contagious,(as Corona viruses are) mutates like an X man and is randomly deadly to those w

  9. I think there was another post on this earlier. When i queried IG on this, they said that there was a problem with their broker. They didnt have an ETA on a fix. They suggested that if you have an order that you need to fill, then use the quote order instead.

  11. 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!

  12. Oh, but he doesn't mention that around 48% of excess deaths this year were non-covid and were actually a result of govt policy caused by continuous rolling lockdowns and restriction of access to the health service.

  13. Latest PHE data, Prof Yeadon writes; 'In fact, recent PHE weekly reports have shown low to no excess deaths. This is completely consistent with national herd immunity, with local self limiting outbreaks possible but impossible to see a widespread & growing epidemic. Note that official data shows there is no public health emergency due to the virus. I’m not going to get into the whole business of misattribution of cause of death due to untrustworthy PCR mass testing again (yesterday’s thread covered that). Please follow Whitty’s advice & be guided by excess deaths. O

  16. Hey @ramblers926, The platforms are similar however there are differences. You can have a price from the market maker, a limit order, a stop order or a market order. If you pick a limit, stop or market order you can choose the expiration date: We don't have a demo for an ISA account as it's too hard to replicate in a demo environment. You can open a live non-leveraged account though with no obligation to fund if you want to see the features. With ISAs we have a £24 quarterly fee. If you trade any commission you pay will be deducted from the

  22. Cases, ICU and deaths should be within a clear, established relationship, if that relationship has broken down then it's a data problem. This is the latest deaths data, deaths are going down. If ICU occupancy was really going up then so would deaths. Non-covid excess deaths have been running at nearly 50% of all excess deaths since the end of March and are a result of the govt shutting down the health service. And that's with blatant covid mislabelling. And in case you've forgotten ...

  23. I don't give a **** what you want, this may come as a shock but it's not my job to do your searching for you, if you are disputing the data look it up for yourself and prove it, not really that difficult, but it looks fine to me judged on what I know so am happy to stand by it until/if it is actually is disproven. it's easy enough for someone to sit on their @rse and just keep pointing the finger over and over but that's not really how things work.

  24. Absolutely delightful how people can give a good clap and pat themselves on the back for showing everyone how much of a good, brave person they are being protecting the lives of others by wearing a mask and supporting the down-on-its-knees not fit for purpose NHS. Makes me so proud to be British.

  25. Also disappointed I can't trade the cryptos from today. Does anyone have any suggestions of alternative platforms (just for cryptos)? I guess the new regulations apply to all in the UK so no chance to trade on leverage anywhere?

  26. here is the ONS yearly deaths data (posted previously), see how they compare with previous years. The latest 999 calls chart proves that despite a case numbers explosion no one is actually getting sick, apart from the usual numbers at this time of year. I did explain precisely what the ICU chart showed and why it was relevant. .

  27. 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.

  29. FOLLOW THE MONEY List of SAGE members with their fingers in the pie. Spoiler Alert: it's practically all of them. Pathologists recently pointed out that during the first wave in April Deaths closely mirrored Cases but that relationship completely broke down after the introduction of mass testing asymptomatics. It's unlikely Drs are suddenly misdiagnosing Deaths so the problem must lie with the Cases data. The medical 'experts' in SAGE must be aware of the history of the PCR test and the ease with which it has triggered pseudo epidemics in the past (see NYT article li

  31. 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?

  32. You can transfer between accounts the cash only. So you have to sell and rebuy. The process takes a few days to clear the funds as apose to instantly within the same account. Each account has seperate annual fees. Any transfer in or out of an ISA account will affect that years ISA allowance so be careful.

  33. Heya, if you open the deal ticket for your stock, under "order type" on the ticket you should be able to select Stop order. If you then select "sell", enter a numbers of shares, and enter a price under "stop level" which is lower than the current market price, your shares should be sold if the market price falls to/below your chosen stop level. I think you can only create stop orders when the market for your stock is open . You'll want to select "Good til cancelled" under "Expiry" too - if you want the stop loss to last more than a day. You should double check this with IG helpdesk

  45. As I suspected. You're only telling half the story. It appears there is also a reduced number of total beds available in 2020 compared to 2019. So not only are there more empty beds, there is less beds to start off with. WTF? https://www.england.nhs.uk/statistics/statistical-work-areas/bed-availability-and-occupancy/bed-data-overnight/
