We will be making an out-of-hours price on the FTSE 100 until 21.00. US index futures close early at 18.00. We will be making an out-of-hours price on Wall Street, US 500 and US Tech 100 until 21.00. Our out-of-hours index markets will close between 21.00 and 23.00. US equities and soft commodities are closed. The VIX closes early at 16.30. US energies, interest rates and metals close early at 18.00. Brent Crude closes early at 18.30. There will be no after-hours session (10.00-16.45) on Hong Kong HS50 and China H-Shares futures, but we will quote them out-of-hours Daily futures bets on the FTSE 100, US indices and crude oil will be for settlement on Tuesday. Tuesday 31st May US grain futures open at 01.00, lumber opens at 15.00, livestock opens at 14.30. Hope you all have a lovely long weekend! Cheers, Luke
  2. Hi , I'm a bit confused what you mean by 'scaling out'? Are you referring to orders that cancel one another if one it triggered? This is known as OCO or 'one-cancels-other' and isn't something that we currently offer. However we've had clients feed this back to us before and it is in the pipeline to be built, I don't have an ETA at the moment for you but we'll let you know when you'll be able to place them! Edit: Apologies , just realised what you were referring to with 'scaling out'. We don't offer this at the moment, nor is it on our current roadmap. I'll pass your feedback onto the IG development team however, as it may something for future consideration. Thanks, Luke
  3. Hi , At the moment we don't have OCO (one-cancels-other) orders on the platform but we are planning to include them in future releases of our trading platform. Sorry we don't offer them currently but we should have them available on the platform soon!
  4.  Just a little thought to give you a helping hand... once you start posting some of your analysis up here, what we'll do is feature the board on the Community's home page so that everyone can see it and contribute with you. Hope this helps get the board up and running!
  5. Morning , I think this is a great idea! It's definitely something we'll support, thats exactly what this Community has been built for!
  6. Hi , thanks for joining us on the Community! Having a setting that will permanently force open any trade that you do is coming! We've taken so much feedback asking for such a setting that our developers have begun working on the back-end so that it will be a feature on future releases of our platform. Unfortunately I don't have an ETA at the moment, but it is definately on it's way. Hope this helps!
  7. Hi  and , welcome both to our Community! Not just trailling stops on orders to open, but trailing stops in general have always been something we've been looking at improving on our platform. I've just spoken with one of our platform developers and they've informed me that this is definately something that's currently in the pipeline to be developed. So whilst i can't really give an ETA, it is on the roadmap. Hope this helps!

  9. Signal centre is used by a good number of our clients, and we frequently review the quality of the signals and feed this back to the providers. It's always good to hear client's experiences with our products! Signal centre on mobile is coming! We’re currently in the design phases for this with no ETA, but it’s definitely not something too far down the line. Alerts on signal centre is an interesting one and we're looking into the potential client demand for it. As FiringSquad13 has mentioned, does anyone else think that this would be a good idea to build into our platform?
