  1. This would be a great feature on a Professional account. Sometimes, using the max. full-on leverage is not a good idea.
  2. Is there any progress on this? ISAs as collateral would be superb. Can't believe there's much work to do behind the scenes - it's just a wrapper.
  3. If it's actually shares not SB or CFDs you're talking about, then I made £5000 on one share in the period of a couple of weeks (in my pension). Lost it all coz I failed to put a stop loss on. Thought it would only last a short period going down... It didn't, and I lost all that I had gained. But then again, that was in the very early days; I've learnt since then.
  4. Find a share that's 'guaranteed' to keep going up, such as Microsoft. Bet that it will go up (by a small percentage). Repeat & rinse. (I've only been doing this for 3 days, so don't take my word for it lasting. Lol. But it appears to work so far).
  5. > Don't use stops use options as a stop loss What are 'options', (and how do we use them as a stop loss) ?
  6. Oh, Ok. But why do they do it that way? They could just extend their opening hours to the max.
  7. I can't say I'm any the wiser. If the market closes at 9pm (UK time), how can you trade on it if it's not open? What am I not understanding?
  8. Today is Monday 7th May. It's coming up to midday & it's a UK Bank Holiday. I understand why no UK shares are trading because obviously the FTSE is closed today. But why I am seeing US shares (Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, Spotify) trading? Their exchanges don't even open until 2.30pm UK time, yet they've been trading all morning. How is this possible?
  9. Well couldn't you - IG - do it? It might not be so quick or accurate, but it would be better than nothing at all.
  10. It would be interesting to know whether we can trade CFDs inside a SIPP. I understand they are a qualifying instrument.
  11. I have exactly the same problem. Cannot access ProRealTime from demo mode. Same 'server error'.
