  1. You’d have to either sell now, or phone to trade out later I think. I haven’t looked at the stock but was there a sell off after the announcement?
  2. I don’t think you understand what margin is... increasing the amount you need to open a trade isn’t a benefit for IG 😂 if anythingits a negative. You need more cash to open the same trade which is obviously worse as you can’t teadeas much with the same about of cash.
  3. Klkl thanks. Scanned a couple and saw someare increasing and some are decreasing. It is what it is. What are you trading specifically @Tudor2 which you have an issue with. Assume you don’t mind a reduction in margin (more leverage) so assume you’re annoyed about greater margin?
  4. EM has been smashed recently. Given the potential for a major global correction, wouldn’t EM be first to go? Longer term wouldn’t it be better to wait for the pull back then get in? What top 3 macro events (excluding political) do we need to monitor. Eg price of metals, specific countries GDP etc. Whats an EM hedge?
  5. Interesting. Always wondered why they never target this space. I would go in with a full options offering as well! You go in stock twits etc and every American is talking about options and calls and puts etc. I think it’s necause of regs around otc companies like IG but if that’s the case why did fxcm do it? IG are near 30% smaller spreads! Wonder what that’ll do to their competitors over there...
  6. Trade ideas suggested on the back of econ calendar events! That would be interesting.
  7. Known as dividend reinvestment but not currently possible on IG im afraid
  8. Must admit this wasn’t as exciting as I thought from a trade / geopolitical perspective. USDMXN only down 0.7% since anyway.
  9. Just putting a post out because I assume there will be some commentary about this over the next few hours and days. Keep an eye out those in the Asian session. Let’s see if this has an effect on the markets.
  10. I find it difficult to get back into trading after an extended break. Does anyone else? Does anyone have any methods for getting interested again? I feel like I want to but I guess I’m just a bit demotivated and deflated (other things in life ehy). Many suggestions appreciated.
  11. Should be fine. Where are you based?
  12. Yeh go for it but don’t follow advice blindly. (There was a certain level of humour to my reply - be careful! And test like you are doing) goo luck and share with community if you want to discuss tactics and have opinions
  13. On mobile it’s a wee flag top right if posts
  14. Closed market. Probably an off book trade went through in the auction which the share dealing dma platform pulls from. Will revert to correct price when market opens.
  15. Given it’s the weekend I’d leave it until tomorrow and if it hasn’t been amended or corrected give them a call. They’ll be in.
  16. Actually scrap that ... you’ve posted as a user so you’ve managed to login already? People who can’t access the IG demo / live account wouldn’t be able to get onto community. It would say ‘guest xyz’ instead. So yes. You already have a demo acc. Log in as normal.
  17. Probably user error. Try again. Different email maybe? Do you already have an account?
  18. Love it thank you. Interesting to read back over all this time and remember what the year has held. It is also a very interesting retrospective to have as a trader. You can look back and remember your outlook from Jan 2017. Crypto’s atthose highs, markets bullish. Who would have thought the years price action would leave us where we are now?!!! Trade safe over this Christmas when liquidity is low and vol seems to be high!
  19. Tough one - gotta **** out those days when markets were closed and therefore change the X axis. they do at weekends tho so I assume it is actually possible!
  20. I was going to tag you in this @TrendFollower - thought it was your bag of chips
