  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. 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.

  3. 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screens and reports (P&L etc) that I need for matching in excel but where they do exist (ProRealTime) there are lots of out of date tickers (e.g. Corcel should be CRCL but it's RGM in PRT).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.

  4. Since Friday, some of the shares I hold will not display graphs, or more accurately the graphs are blank. It is specific to the account, ones that won't dispaly on my Share dealing account will on my ISA account and vice versa. It is not browser specific, same on Chrome or Safari

  5. 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!

  6. 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

  8. 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.

  10. Witnessed this phenomenon in the indices for years and written several threads on it, the keenness with which retail traders try to second guess the start of a correction, no thought to wait for any confirmatory signals, just get in there and wait. But the thing that's always bugged me is where on earth do these guys hang their stops? If the chart is continually making new highs there is no prior chart structure to lean it on. Do they even bother with one? It's not a loss until you book the trade.

  11. As a creature of habit one tends to stick with the familiar, the usual, the normal and view with scepticism anything that doesn't fit within well known parameters. That includes, in my case, trading. However, times change and tempus fugit and we are too young to be so old, as to not at least examine and understand the new. I am not only talking about algorithmic trading but of decentralised finance, web 3.0 and the ramifications for global finance. And it's happening now. It is foolish to ignore or reject out of hand for reasons of being new and wildly unstable, as it is no longer new and is

  15. 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

  18. the price action was real alright - i was watching it in real time - very odd IG have advised me in the past that spreads widen at times of volatility - but 0.9 to 12 pips and then erratic swings - smells of stop hunting to me with no chance of getting filled on the limit orders playing with a stacked deck?

  19. 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

  20. The issue of the charts disappearing has been referenced in another thread (for reference) and I've been discussing it with tech support. They've fixed it now (at least for me) so hopefully it should be working properly for anyone else affected by it.

By the way, here is the research paper showing Covid19 has an IFR of 0.15% (basically the same as flu). Mentioned in quoted post.

  22. 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

Missed this - you need to make sure you quote unless it gets lost in the room Governments have tried to manipulate FX markets and failed - there will be "cartel" trades between the banks, it will never be admitted as its Illegal, but I'm willing to bet it happens occasionally That being said - Markets aren't doing what you think they are doing, people think that after x years of experience you can say markets going to do this and hit that price level there and then reverse to x and then.......It just can't be done Trading is exceptionally hard - whatever you choose to trade - tr

  26. 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?

  27. All of these posts just show that there are people who have got involved with trading who just don’t understand the financial system or how spread betting actually works. All the complaints to the FCA will do is increase the likelihood that leveraged trading gets banned for retail traders because they will conclude that too many retail traders don’t understand the risks they’re taking. Which would be a shame for the rest of us When you place a spread bet with IG or any other broker you’re using leverage and they extend you margin. On the indices it’s 20:1 and on individual stocks it’s 5:1

  30. Has there been a big Increase in margins for CDF trading since last week ? Only started Monday 29th. When I try to put on a IG CFD trade or order I get a huge increase in margin charged. For example , when trying to place a Buy for 1 position on the US 500 , the dashboard shows Size 1 AUD $1 per point , pts away minimum 3. But when I put in a stop of 10 or 30 etc I get the same charge of A$198.65 (NZ$216.68) Why this huge increase in trading margin charged when this is not shown on the pts away minimum ? I this is a new IG policy , this will end my trading with IG. It ma

  31. I can see tabs on the left hand side where the last 3 are for history, statements & isa transfers. If I go into history, I can bring up the actual trades and the amounts of the trades, but it does not indicate the profit or loss of those trades. Also the date for the 'period', 'size' & 'opening' are blank, so I assume you can you settings somewhere for those to be included, but I cant see where. Any ideas?

I was going to keep this thread specifically for the stock market, but I'll slip this one in for educational purposes - please note the cycles that form in the Stock market are different in times to the commodity markets Everyone that has NOT researched or looked at the markets properly will tell you that the markets are "Random", "It's Time in the Market, NOT Timing the market" etc etc.........BS Right Let me explain: This is the CORN market (Soybean market is VERY VERY Similar) Ultra basic cycle analysis - but shows WHY you should be looking back decades!

  33. I will second this suggestion! Viewing as an options chain is so much more friendly. Presumably this would also enable the implied volatilities to be displayed, which helps enormously with assessing value and timing trades, especially as the IV seems to vary considerably through the day.

  34. Hi, I am trying to trade shares on GameStop and putting in Buy/Sell Limits Orders for the Day - e.g. a limit buy order for $150 and the Last Traded Price is $300 - I get the error message "Order too far from last traded price" !! But the share price is SWINGING up and down a LOT... and the price has already changed too much for you place it!! I read that there is a 20% up or down limitation across the board for all shares. I guess it's in place to stop someone adding an extra zero by mistake or something like that. BUT this is a SEVERE problem for a lot of people trading heavily o

Shocking, Ive had this happen countless times with IG every time there is an actual opportunity to trade volitility retail are blocked out until the position is crushed due to buying blocked out how convenient that seems. I am now even more fed up of being blocked from taking profits, can't close position due to either platform not functioning or "outages " in which IG are still able to seek positions and deal themselves and blame other factors Why is it every single time your position only comes live again is when its dropped way past your stop l

  36. @CharlotteIG I'll keep asking until this question gets answered. Why don't you lay out these options in the same intuitive format as the commodity, index and FX options already available on the platform? Also, why not list them under "OPT" with those others?

  37. I agree to all the comments and also felt frustrated the platform online & App "conveniently" went offline for 3 days on the trot exactly when the US opened. We all know that Robinhood have had to reverse their restrictions/limits on deemed volatile stock so why has IG now decide to restrict retail investors - will probably get the same BS about protecting retail investors!!! I am a bit pissed off with this constant rule changes against retail investors - EC ruling/higher margins/no Crypto dealing/restricted trading/even higher margins of 100% to name a few!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 I

  38. 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

  40. There is an error in the statement "To be above" certain strike prices. For example, To be above Sell Buy 11205.9 41.3 51.4 11203.9 80.2 89.1 11201.9 91.7 100.0 Let's say, one entered the trade at 11203.9 and select Sell and Market settled at 11203.9, he loses. But if he selected Buy, he wins. C'mon, the English "To be above", means > and not >=. Another thing, which is not an error, but hope, that can be implemented is when right click and the menu shows up. Under Show, the Position preview is not w
