  1. Hi, I wanted to know why none of the Grayscale products are available, despite previously being offered? I can see their vehicles listed with my other brokers, so why is IG limiting access to this?
  2. Just for clarity, I'm not advocating for any specific broker below, but only presenting a list of the ones I have been looking into. Please consider which may be appropriate for you and your trading strategy/investment objectives. Saxo (I believe also has DMA, like IG) Offers some simple embedded algo trading. AJ Bell (Somewhat retail market focused but seems compelling) Degiro (As above) Sucden Financial (has a number of etrading offerings, a bit more sophisticated by initial impressions) Fineco (Used to be a subsidiary of UniCredit, now floated) Sharescope
  3. Thankfully I'm not bothering to trade this market as I see when I logged in that IG is basically restricting trade anyway. I would be fairly hacked off if (once again) I was unable to enter or exit as happened recently. I take the point that maybe MT4 or others might work in booking orders (I cannot comment on this as I use IG's portal to trade) but the point that the platform's instability during highly volatile times sort of negates its usefulness is what is key here. I'm currently searching for more reliable alternatives and frankly I'm not disappointed with what I'm finding so far.
  4. Yeah I'm complaining to them - this is unacceptable to have a platform failure lead to a financial loss. We don't tolerate this with banks, we shouldn't tolerate it with a broker either.
  5. Yup Rally my symptoms of the issue are the same. It doesn't matter how frequency the changes are made on my side or to which quote, they all revert back within a few minutes (at most) or a few seconds.
  6. Spot on Mikheil. I can log in now and the data feeds are restored but I see that in the interim both my positions were closed out at a loss. Lovely.
  7. Having the same issue, so are some others. And cannot log in now either...
  8. I also can't log in either and I'm having the same chart issues as well
  9. Likewise I also just got booted out of everything and can't log in. Great time to have platform issues isn't it - not like volatility is huge right now 🙄 No wonder they warn most clients lose money - they naturally would if they can't enter/exit positions.
  10. Hi - facing a new issue on the platform. My charts are being wiped out and set to the same default every few minutes/seconds. No matter what I configure, within a few moments it defaults to a 5min candle stick with no other indicators - what is happening?
  11. Good morning, I have a question on a corporate action which I have received an email for - regarding a proposed takeover bid. The premium offered is a fairly small consideration, in the way of 0.1AUD a share in total value (it's a combination of a stock swap and cash). In the email I received from IG, I understand I can assent to this - however if I wanted to decline the offer, what would be the rest? Thanks
  12. Yes Pinochet and the Chicago boys. Chomsky is okay at best and inaccurate at worst.
  13. Agreed it's not the place for the debate, but you went there, so... It doesn't matter where the mean wage is - it will still reduce the ability of those who want social mobility to achieve it, will still result in the state accruing more resource and power to itself to only mis-allocate it elsewhere. But then again I don't expect anyone who buys into the left's thinking to have the capability of understanding it. As the misattributed quote noted about our cousins across the pond, "The American Republic will endure until politicians realize they can bribe the people with their own money."
  14. Looking forward to another Holodomor and eating our pets then? The issue with the BS peddled from our anti-semitic nationalistic social-democratic workers' party (hmmm, rings a bell, where have I seen that before) is that aside from the vitriol and hate they spew; nothing they promise is "free". There is no such thing as a free lunch. Someone is paying. Oh wait - we all are. I recommend Thomas Sowell's Economic Facts and Fallacies as an example of the drag on society imposed by high taxation and high state spending (i.e. crappy Keynesian economics). The state is, has, and always will
