  1. when oh when will Gates finally rollout his 'Chip n Vac'. Govts are just looking stupid now leading people round in circles trying to prevent them gaining herd immunity coz then of course the chip n vac would be superfluous. With corona virus testing now in full swing lots of new cases found (colds, flu, but no increase in death rates?) now masks are absolutely necessary despite the UK govt and the WHO saying up until just recent that they were useless. The problem all along was that Gates's vaccine was never going to be ready before Sept at the earliest so we must all remain in purgatory. Of course we will need the chip to go with the vaccine or else how can you be sure who's been vaccinated, ah, got you there. To refuse would just prove you don't care about others you **********.
  2. Should be in My IG > Settings as per pic below, if not you will need to email tech at the IG helpdesk.
  3. S&P tags the monthly R1 before dropping back. Dow finding support at yesterday's low. FTSE and S&P daily. Dax and Dow H1 charts;
  4. Indices and Oil down. Gold down, Bonds up. Today UK and US jobs data and ECB rate decision. JPY up, GBP down.
  5. ah no, probably not that high for 20 days 24 hour a day. if you were still placing other trades then the server should be ok, you weren't trying to place stops too close to current or such like? note the min distance is variable depending on current market volatility when you say 'desktop dashboard' is that for the Trade terminal rather than the Mini terminal?
  6. Dax was chaffing at the bit all day but in the end was forced to come to heel.
  7. Hi, yes, go to your My IG page and in accounts (or settings) there are different currency conversion options.
  8. yes, depends on which exchange the stocks are listed on as to what type of orders they accept, some are GTC good til cancelled and some are just daily.
  9. Hi, the numbers in your connection box (45769/67kb) are showing an awful large number of dropouts (67), my mt4 platform has been running constant for near 12 hours today and I have 12. You should hear a ding dong sound alarm on dropout and reconnection and there is usually only a second or 2 between them. The 'off quotes' notice would also point to a problem with connection to the server, if happens again try a click on the connection box and click rescan and select a new data centre. If persists may need to email tech at the IG helpdesk.
  10. Dax getting ahead of Dow again. M15;
  11. unfortunately the candle countdown function is not yet available on the IG platform;
  12. yes, a stop loss is just an order to sell the full amount of shares at a price specified below the current price so once you have bought shares you can then place a sell order in the market which you could reset periodically to trail the stop behind current price..
  13. Hi, see this page; https://www.ig.com/uk/investments/share-dealing/transfer-investments
  14. Hi, go to your My IG and then to Settings and set default account is there.
  15. no that looks right, that's the share dealing (non-leveraged) account and a buy limit order to buy when price goes DOWN to your order level. you would use the buy stop order if waiting for price to go UP to your order level. not sure why you haven't been filled last 2 times, just lucky I guess, if you had bought at 524.95 you would be down about £700 by now.
  16. i'm thinking this is on a cfd account rather than the share dealing account.
  17. yeah that's right (on the Share Dealing account, also needs to go through Citibank first) but the problem here is getting the entry order accepted in the first place.
  18. that's how everyone starts and find out too late it's the wrong way round.
  19. the blue +1 quantity says you are looking to buy (go long expecting price to rise) and being a limit means the order will trigger as price drops down to the level of your order, so you are expecting price to go down to your order level then reverse back up.
  20. ok, I think I would ask by email if they could look and see what was wrong with the order. isn't netflix going down like a brick in the US pre-market, you last order was a buy limit.
  21. the thing is it's not necessarily the damage from each trade but to the account over time, those £1 -£5 losses each trade add up, your account moving steadily towards zero really sharpens the mind and you really start to concentrate on what should have been priority number 1 from the start, conserve capital. Demo teaches you to just auto refund the account and carry on as was.
  22. not sure, so it was a buy limit which was below the current price which then went down below your order level but didn't trigger the entry, presuming this was after the US stocks all sessions market opened at 9am (uk).
  23. Psychology is always the problem but can be overcome but not on demo, demo entrenches bad habits because there are just no real consequences. best is to start on the mt4 platform at 10 pence a point so can't do too much damage and look to steadily increase size as your trading improves so it's a natural progressive process instead of leaps into uncertainty.
  24. ok, which platform are you using? mt4, IG's own web based, prorealtime.
