  1. Hi @John_W124, if you are with IG Australia the link to the info page on transferring shares is here; https://www.ig.com/au/transfer-shares-to-ig
  2. ok @ckc, I think you're right, there seems to be a disconnect in the dollar value input box, maybe @JamesIG, can check up.
  3. Interesting new stock screening site, over 5500 common stocks listed. Click on Screener tab then 'advanced mode' tab for very long list of indicators to add. Also has some interesting themed pre-set screeners. https://stockrow.com/
  4. Some stats for Easter Thursday % gain/loss since 2002. dax, stoxx, Ger bonds, euro, es and keep an eye on oil in the US session.
  5. Just to point out you need to be logged in to get the full page including the sentiment data.
  6. BoA fund manager survey on global economy turning up;
  7. US indices still hanging around the highs with nowhere else to go. Dax has the Ger PMIs to look forward to at 8:30 am and EU combined at 9:00. US retail sales at 1:30 pm. US Flash PMIs at 2:45 pm could be interesting. Dax and Ftse have dropped under the daily pivot and currently revisiting support on the M15 charts, wait and see if these levels hold, may see some unwinding of positions today before the Easter break.
  8. Hi @ckc, You'll need to go to 'File' > 'Open an Account' and just open a new demo account. As in the pic below in the pop up box with your personal details you need select SGD (instead of USD), the deposit is auto'd at 100,000 and set the leverage. If that doesn't work increase the USD amount.
  9. Hi Stefan, sounds like you might be a decimal point out there. The margin is easy to look up on the online platform demo because it's worked out for you, so for fx a £0.5 size on eurusd the margin requirement comes in around £188 for just one position. On the mt4 order ticket the size is called volume, on the spread bet mt4 account it means £/point. I think the decimal point shifts depending on what asset class you are trading and I haven't used it for fx. Pays to have a play on demo to fine tune it.
  10. @LeoTrader, thanks for that,I hadn't even noticed.
  11. @eloronz, you are correct that up coming public holidays can affect volatility as there can be reluctance to open large positions just ahead of them. Easter is a two day break for most of Europe so additionally so but not a holiday in the US so you may see markets pick up on the US open.
  12. Philadelphia semiconductor index takes off, sign for the Nasdaq ahead?
  13. @dmedin, the classic options are still on the old platform, go to your 'My IG' dashboard page and see the dropdown box on 'open platform' button, see pic below.
  14. @nit2wynit, I pulled this video on using IG options (on the old platform) some time back for another thread, it may be of some interest to you.
  15. Oil shaping up to try for a break higher into clear space.
  16. Gold looking to test 1280 from the under side, if 1280 becomes resistance gold will have no choice but to look lower for support.
  17. @juliangrainger, you may have missed that the EU regulators severely slashed the amount of leverage brokers were allowed to offer non-professional clients. So the margin requirement is much increased as you've noticed, a major factor in the margin calculation is the price of the asset so the margin required for Dow and S&P is much larger than for Ftse and Dax for example.
  18. Hi @sywmm, IG has two options platforms, the Knockout Options on the new online platform and the classic options on the old platform. To find the latter go to 'My IG' and the arrow for drop down to open old platform (see pic below)
  19. Not much movement in the indices, little on the calendar and public holidays coming up, with all time highs just over head for Dow and S&P there will need to be something to tilt the balance. China put in a good GDP figure so the theme of global slowdown has lost some impetus but not sure that will be enough to cause any eye opening movement before the Easter break.
  20. The big push through may well have been more of a big pull through as the 76.9% retail net longs had their stops taken out. (From the article linked above in this mornings post) "Spot Gold: Retail trader data shows 76.9% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 3.33 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 4.3% higher than yesterday and 9.0% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 0.4% higher than yesterday and 4.5% higher from last week."
  21. @GavinB, PRT is a specialist charting package that pulls in a brokers pricing and dealing feed in a similar way to tradingview, so for charting they like to present themselves as having all the bells and whistles and indeed they do, whether or not you would make use of all the additional features is another matter. You can download the manual and take a look. https://www.prorealtime.com/en/help-manual/quick-tour
  22. yeah, just saw that, a determined push as well.
  23. Very much in tune with the Dow as well. Wait for the Dow to try a push higher.
  24. could turn out that way but seems not to be, the market is bullish and it certainly looks like it wants to trade higher but is struggling a bit at the moment, can't eclipse that 15 min candle and can't break lower.
