    Crude Oil (WTI)

    oil pushing up to resistance again and looking to break

    its certainly a riskier play but potential for those good ol rewards. I don't know if I see a sell off with brexit. Devaluation of GBP should counteract that and I'm not convinced there is enough Euro demand for UK housing (in the same way as there is from middle east and Asia).

    Strong Ethereum - Litecoin & Ripple Weak

    Ether 20 EMA moving above 50, and price currently sat above 100 EMA on the daily. moving up to fib at 148 for me so potential for a reverse. Wait it out and see which direction it goes before execution IMO.

    UK stocks don’t seem to add up.

    out by a factor of 100. assume you missed that UK stocks trade in pence rather than pounds?
  5. interested to see the P500 reply. I hope he publishes all official replies although I doubt he will. It was either an error which they'll look to rectify, or he was already on margin call and this just happened to coincide. Will try and keep an eye out but let us know whats occurring if you spot something? he's just updated

    trading shares/CFDs

    should be correct yeh - commission is taken immediately on the buy and the sell side as soon as you confirm the trade / click. Looks like not in demo accounts tho.

    trading shares/CFDs

    on a CFD account I guess you have the unavoidable market spread and the commission as you stated - yes. If you hold the position over 10pm then you will also have an overnight cost like you said. Basically seems like you're right in your understanding. costs are on the statements overnight and in the My IG area

    Crude Oil (WTI)

    strong day for oil at the moment from reuters "OPEC said on Tuesday it had cut oil production steeply under a global supply deal, although it flagged headwinds confronting its efforts to prevent a glut this year including weaker demand and higher rival output. In a monthly report, OPEC said its oil output fell almost 800,000 barrels per day in January to 30.81 million bpd. That is still slightly more than the expected 2019 demand for OPEC crude, which the producer group lowered to 30.59 million bpd. Worried by a drop in oil prices and rising supplies, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies including Russia agreed in December to return to supply cuts. OPEC is lowering output by 800,000 bpd from Jan. 1."

    BUND BTP divergence

    interesting. very similar to the Italian bond divergence that @DanielaIG wrote about all those weeks ago. I would be interested to see the sort of size you could get on IG, the cost to hold the trade for 6 months, and the potential return. Who wants to have a crack at that maths? wonder if its worth taking on the risk of potential convergence - only the maths will tell
  11. fair, however if there is a legitimate way to resolve this issue and you choose not to take it then that's really on you. But also yes I agree they should look to update. EDIT: I didn't realise it was getting phased out so soon - good to know

    fair call. now the whole ESMA thing is behind us and the US accounts seem to be open maybe they have free time
  13. ...my school teachers would have had a quiet word regarding that top button
  14. Also agree with casey - it looks like fxpro is 30 points (or near enough)
  15. it's worth noting there is a difference between 'min' spread and actual spread. Many providers advertise a 'min' however that only comes up once in a blue moon. It's a sneaky way to get to the top of comparison tables and some crappy providers know it's an easy way for themselves to stand out to those who are trying to compare. There is SO much more under the hood. As a side note, I used to work in head office / hospitality and many restaurants do this with the price of a burger (i.e. many looking at a menu will judge the 'expense' of a restaurant and compare it to others on their burger price because its a standardised product across the different restaurants.) As another side note why do you think there should be consistency across different providers? It's like being like "this TV is £400 in John Lewis but £385 in Sainsbury's - therefore JL should make their TV's cheaper". Why? Why should they? With JL you get 3 years warranty, different returns policy, a better shopping experience, helpful staff, free home delivery etc etc etc. FINAL side note why don't you just trade the FTSE 250 ETF? Currently only 10 points and should in theory track FTSE 250 1-4-1 .... ...mic drop
