  1. When I log in sometimes, all of my open orders show a quantity of Nan instead of a number, e.g. 500. I assume this means Not a Number. Does this impact the order? The working quanity still show 500. This happens to every order in my order list (which at the moment is 24). Today I manually went in and fixed each one. IG, I think this could be a bug in your system.

  2. IG needs to remove sell limit above 20% of price, this is ridiculous and an unwanted problem! So many brokers are lifting their god **** sell limit restrictions and here is IG, stuck in the 19th century. Ridiculous!

  3. The answer depends a lot on your personal circumstances, time horizons, whether you're trading for fun / extra cash or to make a living etc. If you're a long-term investor and have confidence in the quality of your holdings, then a bear market (defined as a 20% drop from the highs) is usually a great opportunity to top-up (personally I would do this by drip-feeding into the market slowly as it's impossible to be sure when a bottom has been reached). If you're a trader then market crashes and the associated volatility usually throw up lots of good trading opportunities but easy to get

  4. If I look at the chart for Gold, it is updating as expected, however if I look at the chart for say TSLA or AAPL, the price indicator on the far right moves at what ever the current price is but there are no candles being drawn live. Its like its just stuck and It doesn't seem to matter what ticker time scale I have set. This doesn't appear to be a browser "Flash" issue as Gold and USD/AUD charts are functioning fine.

  5. Managed to get hold of support via the chat this morning and they confirmed my suspicion. This is only for new client creating a TV account and opening an IG account. This is currently the business relationship with TV at the moment and it will not includes links to execution. It was hinted by the user that there was "more to come in 1-2 years" with TV....so it seems we can not worry about this thread for another 1-2 years...

  6. Hi Everyone, I've been on phone support regarding this but am wondering if others are having the same issue? I can see my current orders (Stops) and Positions, but when I select a stock the chart window displays nothing. I was able to purchase a stock this morning (one that loaded correctly) add my stop, but now have no visibility of the chart or ticket window to edit my stops or buy/sell should I be required. At this stage I have to use my phone.

  8. Technicals were all at their peak. Moving averages were due to cross and did. Trigger point. Normal retracement suggested 8-13% down trend, especially after such a sustained Bull run. Hedge Funds took their profits and freed up some cash while remaining Bullish in overall outlook. Been on holiday from trading subsequent to retracement, as was knackered and had had a good couple of months, so figured it was better to chill out than burn out. Back on it now though and took some time to investigate likely algorithms for future trading strategies.

  9. the 76% retail traders holding short positions during a bull run for the big indices is fairly typical and roughly equates with 75% of retail traders who lose money.

  10. Hi all, I'm using the online IG platform and one thing which is greatly missing is... TICKERS!! How come a trading platform don't have tickers?! PRT and all trading platforms on the market have tickers. Traders speaks with tickers, not company names. So please could you add tickers ASAP (as soon as possible)... you see TICKER!! I need SPY, I need AAPL, I need NVDA, MSFT and so on. And I'm sure I speak for everyone else. I've searched on platform options, forums, etc and couldn't find anything about tickers. So if there is a way to have tickers could you tell me where to allow the op

  11. This is really frustrating -- not only do they not have tickers on key screens and reports (P&L etc) that I need for matching in excel but where they do exist (ProRealTime) there are lots of out of date tickers (e.g. Corcel should be CRCL but it's RGM in PRT). Come on, IG, this is basic stuff and actually reflects badly on you. I (and others) are considering shifting provider because of one very small development tweak IG need to make that is core to every other broker platform.

  13. Doing The Least Amount Of Work For The Biggest Possible Return ; There Are No Original Ideas. History Always Repeats Itself. Part of the investing, is the grindy process of trying to generate new ideas. A lot of people think Hedgefund managers and money managers are more intelligent than the average person. I don't think so. Otherwise they would have figured out that rising rates as the economy opens back up is BULLISH for the economy. Rates rise as the economy improves so do commodities and corporate profits. Yes there is a point at which rates become too high and at which rising rat

She is the most patient/no nonsense woman I have ever known.She actually dragged me there knowing how much I hate traveling. Well not travelling per say more like packing . Whilst I was there on the secluded island I noticed that there were no "tourists" around. The beaches were empty except for a handful of people. It was pure bliss. It was the first time I ever saw a ''proper beach'' and by beach I mean the sea, sand and very littl

  15. ProRealtime gives you the option to add tickers to the list/list and considering it's a IG lookthrough it's obviously there so it should'nt be too hard for IG to add it to the myIG platform, unless for commercial reasons they have chosen to avoid displaying it. My need to tickers are: Reports/historical view of past trades that can be matched progrmatically in Excel. Quick reference to other market makers correlations(is it uncommon to only trade on one platform?) I'd like to compare and research on IG to ensure the Pension Fund manager is not taking the **** consistency in

  16. Hi all, do you have any advice about what to do when a market crashes? I would assume a major crash was like what we saw last year when coronavirus broke. I only started looking into trading just after that happened so have not experienced one yet. Although was involved in the recovery which was a baptism of fire..I guess the question is, do you know when you're in a crash scenario? Of course the news might give clues but you don't know how far the market will fall so are you inevitably going to lose money at least in the short term? This especially if you're a long trader. I assume you don't

  18. Reading the T&Cs it appears that current users of IG and TV are not eligible for this offer. It would appear that this is a new account drive for IG prior to the official launch - I say that as TV has not listed IG as current enabled brokers. https://uk.tradingview.com/brokers/ If this is the case, it would seem a real shame as I'm currently a Pro+ TV user and would meet the IG trading threshold.

  19. Hi @Patelmo786, we have a new pension partner confirmed and we are now waiting for the back-end IT work to be completed so that we can start onboarding new SIPP clients. We don't have a set ETA at the moment but I would estimate it to be within two months, although it could be longer.

NYP, Sky news and the Telegraph ran with this Indian covid horror story, but .... Meanwhile we're supposed to believe India (1.4 billion people, 17.9% of the world's population) can't cope with 1600 covid deaths a day (bodies piling up in the street) in a country that averages 27,000 deaths a day.

  32. Hi all - if you've been having trouble with this, I'd strongly recommend emailing IG support on helpdesk.uk@ig.com. Reference a guy called Anton Liebenberg - he's one of the support people and has been super friendly and efficient. He'll know exactly what you're talking about since he's been acting as a liason between me and the developers, and hopefully he'll be able to sort you out. Sartois

  33. No this is not currently offered by IG sadly. In fact the share trading is a pretty basic aspect of IG's offering compared with their leveraged business. The leveraged side is where they make their significant profits and share dealing is secondary in my view Trailing stops have been put into the IG suggestion box by many, but nothing has come of this to date. Maybe if we all keep on asking it may happen but I get the impression suggestions in the share trading arena are not top priority ATM.

  34. A Better Way To Go About Technical Analysis I have never been a chartist. I knew nothing about moving average crossovers, chart patterns, candlesticks and oscillators. Matter of fact in all honesty I still don't. One of my role models is Anton Kriel; the man manages almost 100 million in assets, runs an online academy, manages 1000 traders and is active on tweeter he is simply a beast! In his educational talks to students, technical analysis is the last 10 percent of his investing process and he only knows basic patterns ! I did that at first ( support and resistance patterns) and I w

  35. Spot on. The FX market is “influenced by policy makers through the purchase or sales of bonds “ their mandate is to keep the confidence in their respective economies as high as possible. That confidence is what the Fiat monetary system is based on, the moment that goes the system evaporates. If you recall a few years ago during Theresa Mays government, the key phrase was strong and stable? . That's their mandate. They can't let a currency move too far towards one extreme or the other. So if you wana make money on fx you need to extend your time horizon or take the other po

  39. Is there a problem with how much margin is required for CFDs on 10 year Treasuries? To buy or sell one contract (the $2 contract) more than $5000 of margin is required. That's more than I have available, but I'm sure I've traded CFDs on them before. Have the margin requirements changed?

  40. I spent Friday re-adding the stop losses and today when I have gone onto the new platform all my working orders were once again set to -NaN. I followed alex9686 and just re-entered the values manually and they seem to have set. But its very worrying that it keeps deleting the quantities on my working orders and makes we worry that the stop losses are totally useless and can't be relied on? Can anyone from IG offer some advice please.

  43. Hi CharlorreIG Thank you for checking in. Ideally the ticker would have a unique column in among the Positions screen. Many of us who deal in diverse / uncommon products only know the name of the product by the ticker. And the name on the IG system often is not familiar. So all confusing and chance of misplaced investing. Thank you

  44. 2FA at least via Google/MS Authenticator is a must. IG Authenticator is way too cumbersome to login with daily to glance my positions, particularly when the password is masked. It would be WAY better if it could utilise push notification via mobile device, the way Microsoft Passport works. Clients should feel encouraged in using this without it being an obstacle.

That does not mean doing absolutely everything that you read about in the guides, manuals or books - Hell man, the ONLY time I've had a Trading "Journal" was when i was back testing and testing a presumed trading method - so that I could work out expectancy etc - I do NOT keep a trading journal, I know from the trades I've taken whether I'm up or down - I KNOW my methods work because i went through the pain of test

  48. I used to trade equity markets and had an interest in technology and the financial sector. After coming to IG a number of years ago I started to trade oil and some other ETF trackers which give exposure to the commodity market. I also have an interest in cryptocurrencies for the underlying technology rather than the price action, so feel free to direct any questions this way. I make my decisions of fundamental news articles and macro economic events. I certainly believe technical analysis has a place, and have range traded some commodities in the past.
