  1. What do you think is happening really? The systems cannot cope with the load. Simple as.
  2. Rumours going round they are going after a the ticker SLV which is basically the Silver Index. Spot Silver is rising currently.
  3. This is fake news qanon level BS at the moment. We have no idea what is going on.
  4. It's obvious what caused it. This isn't normal market behaviour. Clearing firms are having collateral issues at the DTC due to the volatility causing DTC to jack rates to 100%. They're preventing opening trades because their clearing firms literally don't have any cash on hand to fund the 2 day settlement cycle.
  5. I wrote a streamer for the comments on WSB! https://gist.github.com/tg12/7eaa409bf988753668946179de96af99
  6. The API is really only for CFD/Spreadbetting. Check here. https://labs.ig.com/sample-apps/api-companion/index.html
  7. > recommend for a newbie like me? Absolutely, Stay away from scammers on YouTube and Instagram. They are all horse ****.
  8. Why do you not use orders when the market is closed, Then you can set your own price?
  9. I wonder if they use the Demo platform as a test environment
  10. Cryptos have been banned in the UK https://www.zdnet.com/article/uk-ban-on-cryptocurrency-derivatives-comes-into-force-today/#:~:text=The ban has now become,crypto assets to retail consumers."&text=However%2C UK regulators believe the,consumers to enter without regulation.
  11. Be careful with that theory. You get burned quite quickly. Remember to keep an eye on slippage and spread. What you have said is true, If you have a spread betting account you can trade with 1000 but bare in mind there are certain minimum deposit requirements setout in law. you can pick small positions with £1000, The amount of leverage is entirely up to you £1/pip, £2/pip etc etc. Good luck.
  12. It could be the spread. It's always bigger during opens. You can't see the depth of the order book... I presume. I mean I think you can if you have level 2 access.
  13. IG Index API only supports CFD at this time
  14. This year, It's a moving goal post. One bad Brexit headline or a Covid related news story and they will move. Algos baby. Algos
