  1. Hi Matteo, https://www.ig.com/uk/trading-platforms/metatrader-4/download-mt4 There is a link at the bottom of the page that will start the download process.
  2. Hi @LDH, there are no account restrictions on the amount of shares you can buy as long as you have enough funds and there is enough liquidity in the market to match your orders.
  3. Hi all, Just to give you some more information about why the decision has been made by IG to stop offering Cannabis stocks for share dealing clients: IG has become aware of various financial institutions performing reviews of the regulatory and political implications of offering Cannabis stocks in the UK with a recreational link, and because of this and IG's own internal review the stocks listed above are no longer appropriate for IG's risk appetite. Therefore there has been a business decision to take action as quickly as possible but within the legal allowances detailed in IG's Customer Agreement. Regarding why we can continue to offer these stocks on leverage accounts, the reason is that there is additional certainty with regards to derivatives referencing the underlying stocks, and as IG uses swaps to hedge our clients' leveraged trades with us, we will not be engaged in the physical trading of recreational linked cannabis stocks.
  4. Hi @loke1996 and @chantellouise, as @Caseynotes has pointed out, this is due to Japan's Golden Week and new EMperor Crowning where markets will be closed for 10 days, which means that all JPY crosses were charged 11 days of overnight funding on Wednesday (charged on Tuesday for AUDJPY and NZDJPY due to ANZAC holiday).
  5. Hi @Alip, we do not currently offer fingerprint login for Android App, but I have passed on the feedback to developers for future implementations

  7. Hi @CapoCrow, I assume you mean CR Prem, which is the premium that is charged when a Guaranteed stop is triggered. It means Controlled Risk Premium, and it is settled as a separate charge if the guaranteed stop gets triggered. https://www.ig.com/uk/help-and-support/spread-betting-and-cfds/orders--stops-and-limits/how-much-does-a-guaranteed-stop-cost
  8. Hi @OptionsTrader, limits and stops will have a minimum distance whereby you cannot place them within the minimum points away. This might be one of the reasons why your stop amendments are rejected. I have looked into your account but could not find a £2 where your stop was rejected. If you could send us an email with the specific details we could look into it further for you.
  9. Hi Darren, markets were closed on Monday due to the Easter bank holiday. When markets are closed, you cannot place a market order but you are able to set up a working order to be executed when markets re-open.
  10. The British economy managed to grow in the month of February as manufacturers are said to have increased stockpiling in preparation for the original Brexit deadline of March 29. GDP grew 0.2% MoM in February, despite predictions of economic stagnation amid fears of a global economic slowdown. The UK and EU have agreed to extend the Brexit deadline until October 31. The "flextension", which allows the UK to leave before the deadline if a deal is approved in Parliament, means that the UK will have to take part in the European Elections in May, electing representatives in the European Parliament, which would cease their role when the UK leaves the EU. The Dollar was trading softer on Thursday morning as the Fed's dovish stance keeps the greenback hovering around two-week lows. The softer dollar has aided gains in commodity prices and emerging market currencies. Sterling seemed to show no reaction to the extension of the Brexit deadline, as the market expected an extension to be granted in order to avoid a no-deal Brexit. China's Consumer Price Index and Producer Price Index were both up in March, rising 2.3% and 0.4% YoY respectively, calming fears of deflation and consumption stagnation. The rise was driven mostly by an increase in food prices. Following the increase in inflation, Chinese stocks were trading lower in the afternoon session with the Shanghai Composite down 1.36%, the Shenzhen Composite down 1.73%. The decline was followed by other Asian markets as the Hang Seng was down 0.92% while the Kospi and Nikkei were trading flat. Asian overnight: Asian markets were largely in the red overnight, with Chinese indices losing substantial ground in the wake of a sharp rise in inflation. With CPI jumping to 2.3% from 1.5%, we see less room for stimulus from the PBoC. UK, US and Europe: Yesterday's FOMC meeting saw the committee maintain their stance that rates will likely remain steady through 2019. Meanwhile, the UK managed to obtain an article 50 extension to October 2019, which is both longer than the June deadline set out for by the government, yet shorter than the 12-month timeline previously mentioned by the EU. However, the pound has seen little upside, with GBPUSD remaining in consolidation mode. Looking ahead, today is somewhat of a lull between the busy Wednesday and Friday releases. With little to nothing in Europe, we see US PPI, unemployment claims and a few FOMC appearances from the likes of Clarida, Williams, Bullard, and Bowman. South Africa: Tencent Holdings is up 2% in Asia, suggestive of a similar start for major holding company Naspers. The BHP Group is down 0.6% in Australia, suggestive of a softer start for local diversified resource counters Economic calendar - key events and forecast (times in GMT) Source: Daily FX Economic Calendar 1.30pm – US PPI (March): forecast to be 0.3% MoM from 0.1%. Markets to watch: USD crosses Corporate News, Upgrades and Downgrades Man Group said that funds under management rose to $112.3 million from $108.5 million a year earlier, for the three months to 31 March. Grafton Group will acquire Polvo, a specialist ironmongery business, for €131 million. WH Smith reported a rise in like-for-like revenue of 3% for the first half, while the dividend was raised 8% thanks to a positive outlook for the full year.

  11. Hi, If you have an open position you are able to split the position into multiple new and independent positions, which you could then attach different stop and limit levels to. To do this, you would need to call in to the helpdesk and we would split the position for you.
  12. Hi @TrendFollower, nothing specific, just availability of data at the time.
  13. The price of Bitcoin jumped 23% on Tuesday, surpassing the $5,000 line and hitting its highest level in almost 5 months in just under an hour. This sudden surge caught investors off guard as Cryptocurrencies' volatile sessions, which were popular at the beginning of last year, have now become a rare occasion. The trigger of this rally is unknown, which is common with unregulated assets, but other digital currencies followed suit, as Ethereum surged 12% and Ripple gained 6.5%. The US and China are believed to have resolved most of their issues regarding their trade dispute as they are set to resume talks this weeks to try and figure out how to implement and enforce their agreement. The potential end to the trade disputes comes as figures released by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) show that Chinese investment in Asian developing countries tripled last year. As a result of the trade talk progress, Asian shares were trading higher on Wednesday, as Shanghai, Kospi, Nikkei and Hang Seng Composites, were all trading 1% higher whilst the Shenzhen Composite was trading 0.5% higher. European equity futures point to a higher open on Wednesday. The S&P 500 closed flat on Tuesday as previous gains were capped by a drop in consumer staples and telecoms. The Nasdaq was up by 0.3% whilst the Dow Jones was down by that same margin. Oil prices were up to new highs nearing $70 per barrel as concerns about supply continue, with Brent up 0.52% to $69.73 and Crude up 0.37% to $62.81 per barrel. Brexit tensions resumed on Tuesday as Theresa May offered to work with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to ensure support for her deal, sparking outrage amongst the Conservatives, with some of its members branding the move as collaborating with "a known Marxist". As a result of Mrs May's attempt to try and resolve the political deadlock, Sterling was up 0.1% against the dollar. Asian overnight: Asian markets have seen widespread gains after a report from the FT was released that stated that almost every issue had been resolved in US-China trade talks, with the only sticking point coming on how the deal will be implemented and enforced. Talks between the two sides continue today in Washington, with further progress likely. The Chinese PMI recovery continued this morning, with the Caixin services PMI jumping from 51.1 to 54.4; the highest level in over a year. Elsewhere, Australian retail sales and trade balance both improved markedly, providing a boost for the Australian dollar. UK, US and Europe: British Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to ask the EU for another short extension as she tries to work out her deal with opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn. This move has upset hardline Tory Brexiteers as Mr. Corbyn wants to implement a Customs Unions, which would keep the UK tied in with the EU in the future. Looking ahead, a busy day sees the all-important UK services PMI reading released in the morning, with eurozone retail sales following shortly after. In the US we have the ADP payrolls figure and ISM non-manufacturing PMI reading, with the day finishing off with the release of the latest US crude inventories. Economic calendar - key events and forecast (times in GMT) Source: Daily FX Economic Calendar 9.30am – UK services PMI (March): index expected to weaken to 51 from 51.3. Markets to watch: GBP crosses 10am – eurozone retail sales (February): sales expected to fall by 0.6% MoM. Markets to watch: EUR crosses 1.15pm – US ADP employment report (March): 165K jobs expected to have been created, down from 183K last month. Markets to watch: US indices, USD crosses 3pm – US ISM non-mfg PMI (March): index to fall to 58.7 from 59.7. Markets to watch: US indices, USD crosses 3.30pm – US EIA crude inventories (w/e 29 March): stockpiles expected to fall by 2.7 million barrels. Markets to watch: Brent, WTI Corporate News, Upgrades and Downgrades Stagecoach said that strong trading and progress in its UK rail business had lifte performance, and as a result it expects an improvement in its earnings per share for the year to 27 April 2019. Topps Tiles reported a 0.2% rise in like-for-like revenues for the 26 weeks to 30 March 2019. However total revenues for the period were £108.8 million, down from the £109.4 million of a year earlier. AA suffered a 62% fall in pre-tax profit for the year to 31 January, to £53 million, but revenue rose 2% to £979 million.

  14. A three-year legal battle has concluded with the EU enforcing stricter copyright laws that could affect the business models of tech giants like Google and Facebook. The new reform plans to protect artists and publishers whose work has been widely spread on the internet, by making the tech firms responsible for detecting and removing content that infringes copyright law. Google will has been very critical about the new reform saying that it will restrict freedom of expression, as its video-sharing platform YouTube will be one of the most affected by these changes. Google shares were down 0.63% at the close of Tuesday after the new laws were announced. Trading in Australasia was mixed during the Wednesday session. The Nikkei 225 closed 0.23% lower mainly driven by a 4% percent drop in Nissan shares, the ASX 200 closed 0.01% higher and the South Korean Kospi closed 0.15% lower despite a recovery in Samsung Electronics pushing it higher throughout the day. There was a positive close in China as both the Shenzhen and the Shanghai composite closed 1% and 0.85% higher respectively. European stocks are expected to be mixed at the opening of the trading session on Wednesday as they struggle to find direction amid lingering fears of a US recession, whith the FTSE and the DAX expected to open slightly higher while the CAC points to a lower open. Oil prices were slightly lower on Wednesday as an industry report showed a rise in output in the US, but the losses are expected to be capped as issues with rolling blackouts in Venezuela continue to disrupt supply from the region, pushing prices higher. US crude futures fell 9 cents to $59.85 and Brent was down by 12 cents at $67.85. Metal prices are trading marginally higher this morning despite a slightly firmer dollar Asian overnight: Another indecisive Asian session saw losses in Japan offset by gains in China, Hong Kong and Australia. The NZD dropped overnight after the RBNZ warned that they could cut rates soon in response to slowing economic growth. Given the fact that the FOMC dot plot now points towards zero rate hikes in 2019, we are clearly seeing a more dovish central bank outlook offset some of those growth fears. UK, US and Europe: Today’s focus will be on the UK, with a host of indicative votes taking place in parliament. British MPs prepare to vote on their preferred Brexit options as the Prime Minister is still trying to get backbench Tory support for her deal. The options put forth by the Speaker are likely to range from cancelling Brexit altogether to leaving the EU without a deal. The ability to converge on any single form of Brexit is going to be key, although any such measure also has to be able to pass through the EU which makes the task even tougher. Global equity markets have rebounded in the near term, although recessionary concerns remain, in part fueled by the inversion of US yield curves, which are said to be a precursor to contracting economic growth. South Africa: The firmer dollar sees the rand back near its weakest levels of the last month. Economic calendar - key events and forecast (times in GMT) Source: Daily FX Economic Calendar 12.30pm – US trade balance (January): deficit to rise to $60 billon from $59.8 billion. Markets to watch: USD crosses 2.30pm – US EIA crude inventories (w/e 22 March): stockpiles fell by 9.6 million barrels a week earlier. Markets to watch: Brent, WTI Corporate News, Upgrades and Downgrades Imperial Brands expects revenue at the upper end of guidance despite warning that first half reveneus will come under pressure. Sports Direct has proposed a takeover for Debenhams, worth 5p for each share, a 127% premium to Tuesday’s closing price. The offer requires the acceptance of Mike Ashley becoming CEO.

  15. Dear Elias, We are having issues with our DEMO platforms today. Clients are unable to open new positions, and the system seems to be adding positions that the client has not opened and these cannot be closed. The incidents team is looking into this and we are trying to resolve it as quickly as possible, but for now those positions cannot be closed. This issue is only happening on DEMO accounts.
