    Hi all!

    I have a fairly substantial dividend adjustment overnight for my FTSE positions. I understand that Xmas will have changed the days around a bit this week, but Reuters don't list any stock going ex-div and the IG dividends tab is blank for the FTSE.

    Wondering if anyone knows which stock went ex-div?



    I think that would be BATS, BT and HLMA. :) 

    6.3 points total coming off FTSE 100.

  2. well IG would be a good place to start, but basically any regulated broker, ideally stationed in the UK or other well regulated region like America / Australia etc would be a clear choice. 

    look deeper than just the top level costs. look at conversion costs and admin fees too. they mount up.

    I am not concerned about 24/7 trading, in fact I think it's a silly idea, but you shouldn't claim 24 hour trading seven days a week when six hours of the sixth day are not available to trade.

    "161 hours 40 minutes a week" or "24/6, plus 18 hours minus 20 minutes on FX and 2 minutes on indices" didn't have quite the same ring to it I imagine....

    30 point spread lol!

    True but also let me know how else I can trade fx which settles at the globally traded fx rate on sunday night ;)especially over weekends with brexit! exclusivity means it lacks competition and can put a premium on it

  5. I find currencies very hard to trade on. There is so much information to digest and a lot of macro players and data to keep an eye on. In some aspects its a heavily manipulated market with government intervention, and in other aspects its a free market because its so large you need to be a serious player (i.e. government or significant player) to move the market.

    Stresses me out O.o but I do appreciate looking at these threads to get an insight into the wider economy. Thanks.
