  2. Thanks Casey, that is a tremendous help. I found this on the settings page you talked about: "Automatic rollovers are enabled by default on open positions on futures contracts." So I'm all set for the gains to keep rolling 😁 Thanks again!

  3. Hi, you need to look at the info ( i ) dropdown tag on the deal ticket for expiratory dates and times when the position is closed and any profit or loss realised. A new same position will automatically reset if you have clicked the auto rollover tab in your Settings page in your My IG. There used to be a discount for having the auto ticked but don't think there is anymore.

  4. Propaganda at its best. I fail to see the point of posting your garbage. Have you lost that much trading with IG that you are committed to fill their forums with rubbish? That would make sense to me. https://www.gob.pe/coronavirus They are not only testing and forcing everyone to have a PCR test in order to enter the country. They are a leading country in South America in terms of Covid vaccinations. It is Perú by the way, you can't patronise people in English if you make grammar mistakes in other languages, my dear.

  6. Hi, as a UK resident, what is the process which will allow me to directly register my shares of US companies? the designated transfer agent for the companies in question is Computershare. I called them (UK branch) and got told that they can only register UK companies shares. thanks.

  10. Many thanks Arvin. I'm new to IG, but was surprised not to see this feature as I'm used to downloading my position statements from other trading platforms as a simple click to export (csv/excel/pdf) every month end. I don't know how other people manage this at present. Nathan

  12. me too. It's very selective, it is the "bottom 40" i.e. the 40 countries with the WORST deaths/100k population. There are 150+ more countries that have a lower death rate....

  13. OUCH. IM @ianmSC 9m Just FYI, here is where Sweden ranks among the top 40 countries in COVID mortality rate despite no masks and no strict lockdowns or vaccine mandates It’s an impressive triumph of media gaslighting that essentially no one is aware of this A quick word on Peru, the govt decided early on not to waste money on tests and just call any suspicion a covid death, not unlike many western countries, just with more gusto.

  14. Hi @AR22 Thanks for the query The closings only status on a share means that we do not want to accept any new opening positions, but are happy for clients with existing positions to close them online. This could be due to a risk parameter such as volatility or liquidity, or perhaps a corporate action. Thanks Anda

  17. Thanks for the detailed response. Yeah i mean assuming you understand the methods, you can look for the opportunities but i can see that its helpful to use multiple approaches. I just thought it was interesting that the double bottom was clear to see on the EUR/US weekly chart so you could just have kept on that chart, setting the target to the previous high then use a trail on that but instead you're still seeing that "weekly" target but going for the individual swings within that on the daily time frame. I guess its more profitable if you can cut out the dips but easier i guess to just have the one trade on the weekly chart, although that could be too simple approach. You want to keep it simple but the markets don't always allow given what you've said about having multiple approaches.

  18. Hi THT, I wonder if you could explain your thinking a bit more on the EUR/US trade. I've been watching this since you last mentioned the potential double bottom. From what you had said previously it seemed like you had/have a target of the previous swing high on the weekly chart. But then you mention have taken multiple R profit already from this, I assume then that you trailed your stop on the daily time frame and this was hit as the market is now turning on the daily bars. So if I'm correct about that it seems like you're mixing time frames? The target is on the weekly scale but the trailing stop and entries are based on the daily chart? If you stuck with the weekly chart the trailing stop would potentially not be hit yet as it would be lower but looks like it's too late for that as market has turned quite a bit to the downside and looks like a weekly based stop could get hit. If this is the case why do you always read people saying, know your timeframe. It suggests you shouldn't mix them.. Thanks for your input as ever.

  20. I don't understand how it can get to -£20,000 when I started with £10,000, all my shares have gone up in value so £12,000 looks right to me, I didn't get the -£20,000 because I don't understand how a share can get to a negative value, I thought £0 would be the lowest possible. I don't understand how this thing works, I just thought I was buying normal shares. It is a spread bet account.

  22. Great post! Without planning it I have sort of evolved into a mean reversion specialist on the Dax. The last 90 days on the Dax looks like this for me. Happy to reply to any questions.

  27. The long observed problem with the deaths and hospitalisations data is the 'death (or hospitalisation) within 28 days of a positive test', gives no indication of the person having died of covid or was hospitalised by covid. And given the reported false positive rate of the PCR test makes the data even less conclusive. You would think after all this time someone would have come up with a better test, makes you wonder why they haven't. In the age groups most at risk of harm from covid infection rates are less for the unvaccinated than the vaccinated under 80 years. This is very much in line with the data coming out of Israel where there is also zero vaccine efficacy. The fact is that vaccine ADE has created vaccine resistant variants as well as weakened the immune system of those vaccinated.

  28. Australian politicians are just reading straight off WEF great reset cue cards now. If the global elite gets its way, draconian Covid controls will be a warm-up act for totalitarian "climate change" policies that will severely restrict the mobility of ordinary people and crush their standard of living.

  29. Interesting blog on Dax and the upcoming September changes. By Chris Weston (ex IG) Dear Trader, The GER30 - trading the biggest shakeup to the DAX since 1988 The German DAX (GE30 on MT4/5) has for long periods been seen as one of the great instruments for index traders, often getting the lion’s share of any of the European and global indices from retail traders. However, in recent times we’ve seen the 10-day realised volatility fall to 5% and the lowest levels since May 2019, while 30-day volatility (now 7.11%) resides at the lowest reading since 2017. These measures of index volatility and movement also show that volatility in the German DAX is indeed lower than any other major equity index. In a world where traders are looking for movement, as well as compelling expected returns, the DAX has become relatively sanguine and equity index trader capital have flocked towards the US500, US30 and into Asia, notably the HK50. Although, volatility in these markets is considered far from lively. (DAX 30 daily chart) We can look forward, where options pricing shows implied measures of volatility not far off multi-year lows – however, one questions if this volatility is priced incorrectly and with some big event risk on the horizon, it’s not hard to envisage a world where this dynamic changes, volatility rises and the GER30 becomes one of the most traded equity indices in our universe of index products by retail traders. Catalysts to make the GER30 fire up again The list of volatility catalysts are building, and whether the traders flow is aimed at longs, or shorts is yet to be seen, but we see a highlight symbolic election on 26 September that could get protracted and messy. The ECB is moving closer to a world where they slow the pace of asset purchases (under its PEPP program). Perhaps most importantly there are major changes in the composition of the DAX that may change both the volatility in the index, but also the attraction of the index and the underlying constituents for foreign investors. The main change is that 10 new companies will be entering the index on 20 September – effectively making it the DAX 40. Along with other measures, these additions constitute the biggest change in the equity index since its inception in 1988. Incoming corporates include Airbus, Siemens Healthineers, Porsche, Puma, Zalando, Symrise, Sartorius, Hellofresh, Brenntag and Qiagen. Airbus is the biggest inclusion with a market cap of E89.9b, with Siemens Healthineers the next, with a market cap of E66B. By way of index composition – adding 10 new stocks reduces the concentration risk we see from having 30 stocks and by increasing the market cap by over E350b, the added diversification, in theory, lowers the variance. However, the additions challenge the way investors look at the German DAX – consider that 40% of the index constituents pay an expected dividend yield of over 3% and that can be influential on the broader index as the DAX is quoted as a total return index – that is, the price you trade reflects both the move in the price of the underlying stocks but also the dividend returns. By diluting the weighing of some of the higher dividend-paying stocks and increasing the weighting towards growth we may see the index command a higher P/E multiple, and have a higher beta to other markets, with increased volatility. It may even make international investors look twice at the index and re-establish the German DAX as a front-of-mind instrument for traders once again. The GER30 as a play on global growth We can see the index will maintain a strong weight towards international cyclical stocks with a skew towards chemicals, industrials, and technology. Over 75% of GER30 (soon the be GER40) corporates derive sales from outside of Germany, and one could argue the new additions increase the global international exposure, notably towards Europe and China. After the inclusion, the GER30 index becomes even more sensitive to world traders than the S&P500, FTSE100 and other major EU bourses and holds the highest beta of equity returns to world trade – this means if we do see global growth being called into question on a more sustained basis, which I’d argue is playing out now, the DAX may well underperform and attract greater short-selling interest. It all suggests a livelier environment in the months ahead, and with our reduced spreads on the GER30 and industry-leading top of book liquidity, put the GER30 on the radar for increased movement – because movement results in opportunity for traders. GER30 Strategy sessions One strategy I’ve been looking at on the DAX is a short-term mean reversion model – I have optimised the settings to give the best results – and while over fitting is an issue the sample size is solid. Here, I wanted to buy DAX futures (what our GER30 is priced off) when the 2-day RSI is < 10 AND the index was above its medium-term moving average (the system suggests 81 days is best). I wanted price to rebound into the 9-day EMA as a profit target. The results are since 2000 I would have placed 122 trades, with a 78%-win ratio. The average win/loss are balanced, so the returns are strong and beat a buy and hold strategy before costs. The settings can be changed on shorts, where a 10-day EMA seems to work bests as a profit target. Past performance obviously doesn’t guarantee future results and automated strategies incorporate many assumptions.
