  1. 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.
  2. Hi David, Yes Bed and ISAs are still available, and you would have to call us to do it. Daniela
  3. The pound rallied to a new high after British MP reject leaving the EU with a no-deal. As the rejection passed by 312 votes to 278, the pound gained 2% against the dollar, reaching new highs for the year of 1.3339, as investor's received the no-deal rejection as good news for the future of the British economy. Us stocks rose on Wednesday as strong economic data boosted tech shares. The S&P 500 saw gains for a third day in a row, closing 0.69% higher at 2,810.92. The Dow Jones and the NASDAQ also pushed higher, as they closed at 25,702.89 and 7,643.41 respectively. Boeing shares managed a marginal reverse on Wednesday as they were up by 0.5%, after closing 11% lower on Tuesday as more and more countries ban the disaster struck 737 Max from flying over their air space. Boeing's market value has fallen from $238.7 billion to 212.1 since the fatal crash in Ethiopia in Sunday, as Boeing yesterday announce it had grounded all 737 Max 8 aircrafts as a precautionary measure in response to safety fears. Asian shares were trading lower on Thursday morning as mixed macroeconomic data from China signalled further weakness in its economy. Its industrial output fell to new lows, whilst its retail sales and property investments improved marginally. Brent crude oil futures were trading at a new high for 2019 during the Asian session, as the barrel was priced at $58.38, close tot he highs of November 2018. Prices have pushed higher as a result of continued cuts to production and Us sanctions imposed against major oil produces Venezuela and Iran. Asian overnight: A bearish if unconvincing session overnight saw marginal losses across Japanese, Chinese, and Hong Kong stocks. This came in the wake of disappointing Chinese industrial production figures, which fell to a 17-year low of 5.3%. While we did see marginal improvements in fixed asset investment, the jump in unemployment from 4.9% to 5.3% helped determine the tone. UK, US and Europe: Britain faces one of the biggest challenges of the Brexit journey as both a deal presented by PM Theresa May and a no-deal Brexit have been rejected. MPs will today vote on whether they wish to extend article 50 and be granted extra time by the EU to leave the bloc. If they vote against the extension, the UK will, by default, crash out of the EU on March 29, and even if they do vote to extend article 50, there is no guarantee that the EU will grant the extension. The problem is that there seems to be no alternative plan or solution offered to solve the impasse in Parliament, and unless the British government can assure the EU that they have a plan in place to deliver Brexit in the near future, they will probably be forced to extend Brexit by a much longer period than they wish. For the pound, a longer extension period would certainly be preferable over a short one. The dollar has renewed some short term strength and in turn we are seeing precious metal prices retracing from their recent run. Oil prices have gained following reports of lower inventory being held by US commercial firms.

  6. The Euro was nearing a 21-month low yesterday as the ECB was perceived to be dovish after its speech, ahead of US jobs data to be released today. During Thursday's session the EURUSD hit $1.1176, its lowest since June 2017, as the ECB announced it had pushed back the first rate increase to at least 2020 and announced a new round of TLTRO funding for European Banks. China has reported worse than expected trade data for the month of February. Its dollar-denominated exports fell by 20.7 per cent, much below expectations of a fall of just 4.8 per cent. The overall trade surplus was reported as $4.12 billion, much weaker than the $26.38 surplus expected. Asian stocks were trading lower on Friday after the ECB cut its growth forecasts and initiated a stage of monetary stimulus. Japan's Nikkei hit 3-week lows at 21,102.79, adding up to a 2.2 per cent decline in the past week. The Shanghai Composite was down 4.4% to 2,969.86 and the ASX200 closed at 6,203.80, down by 0.96%. Airbus is unlikely to pay back hundreds of millions of loans it received to develop the superjumbo A380, even after it decided to stop its production. Airbus CEO, Tom Enders, said that governments knew that when financing this project they were putting their capital at risk if the development of the plane was not successful. Airbus decided an early wind-down of the A380 after major airlines like Emirates and Eithad Airways cancelled their orders of the superjumbo. Asian overnight: Sharp declines throughout Asia saw the Chinese Shenzhen composite lose 3%, the biggest one-day fall since October. Growth concerns remain key to this recent selloff, with Chinese trade data overnight providing yet another clue of the impact trade wars are having upon business in the world’s second biggest economy. The huge switch from 9.1% growth in exports, to 20.7% contraction certainly grabbed the headlines, with some attributing this move to the impact of the Lunar new year. Meanwhile, the Japanese Yen enjoyed a positive session, gaining ground from the risk-off mood, alongside an improved an improved Q4 GDP figure; rising from 0.3% to 0.5%. UK, US and Europe: Britain is running out of time to secure a Brexit deal if their exit from the European Union is to take place on March 29. The second meaningful vote on the exit agreement is to take place on Tuesday March 12, but MPs are expected to be shown the agreement the day before the vote, which means that crucial talks will have to continue over the weekend as the EU has confirmed no amendment to the backstop has yet been reached. If the deal is unsuccessful in Parliament on Tuesday, MPs will be asked to vote if they wish remove the option to have a Hard Brexit on Wednesday. If a no-deal Brexit is rejected, then MPs will vote on Thursday March 14 whether they wish to extend article 50 and ask Brussels if they can have an short extension to approve an exit deal. Looking ahead, all eyes will be on the US, with the jobs report expected to bring substantial volatility. With the German factory orders already released this morning, the European session is likely to see traders looking towards the overnight session for a lead as they prepare for the jobs report. Also keep an eye out for the Canadian jobs figures, which are released alongside their more widely heralded US counterparts. Economic calendar - key events and forecast (times in GMT) Source: Daily FX Economic Calendar 1.30pm – US non-farm payrolls (February): 170K jobs expected to have been created, from 304K a month earlier. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate is expected to fall to 3.8% from 4%, while average hourly earnings rise 0.3% MoM from 0.1%. Markets to watch: US indices, USD crosses Corporate News, Upgrades and Downgrades SIG reported pre-tax profit of £28.5 million for 2018, up from a £54.7 million loss a year earlier. The total dividend was 3.75p per share, unchanged compared to 2017. Bodycote said that annual pre-tax profit for 2018 rose 13% to £132.2 million, and revenue rose 6.7% to £728.6 million.

  7. Yes, if you are long on the Index you will receive the dividend amount to offset the loss in your position, and you will be debited if you are short, to offset the gain on your position. This is because dividends are zero-sum when trading on leverage.
  8. Hi @yogitree, AML checks are to verify the source of your funds, this is usually requested to clients that are relatively new. We sent an email a while ago where we explained the steps needed in order to do these checks, but we have not heard a reply from you regarding the documents requested, so we cannot proceed with the transfer. In order to proceed, please reply to the email with the documents requested. If you cannot find the email, please contact our helpdesk again and they will be able to tell you the documents I need (i have left a note on your account specifying what we need from you).
  9. On the back of client feedback and to make the platform easier to navigate, we have now made the ‘show’ button easier to find by adding the toggle to the top of the charts. By clicking this button, you will be able to customize the information that appears on your charts. These functionalities were previously available by right clicking on the graph, however due to significant and continued client use they’re now only one click away. Graph features you can add: HLOC: By enabling HLOC data you will be able to see the high, low, open and close prices by hovering over a candlestick on your chart. Drawings: The drawings button will enable you to see or hide any drawing you may have set up. This button will make it easier to work with drawings, as you can hide them all at the same time without having to discard each drawing individually. Indicators: As like with drawings, this button will make it easier to hide all indicators that are selected, without having to delete each indicator individually. Open positions: By enabling open positions on your chart, you will see a line displaying your open position(s) and the level at which it was open. Working orders: Enabling working orders will allow you to see any working orders you may have set up for that market as a line along its trigger price. Position preview: Enabling position preview will allow you to see a visual representation of your trade on the graph as you fill in the deal ticket. You can visit this link to find out more about deal position preview. Timeline: Enabling the timeline will allow you to see, at the bottom of the graph, the range of dates selected to appear on the graph. Price changes: Enabling price changes will show the absolute change, the percentage change, the high, the low and the time frame to which it applies; all shown at the bottom of the graph. Price line: Enabling price line will show a line across the graph where the current price is.
  10. Hi there, thank you for posting your question. Funds are the funds you have added to your account and they will change when you realize profits and losses. There is also a figure called Equity, this is your funds plus or minus your gains or losses (if you were to close all of your positions, this would be your total value). Margin is the funds that a tied up that allow you to keep your current positions open. Available, is the spare funds you have at your disposal to open new trades, taking in to account the margin that is being taken up for your current open positions. In other words, your available is your equity minus your margin. If you have no open positions, your margin should be 0 and your funds, equity and available should equal the same amount. In regards to leverage, it will depend on the market you are operating and the country you are contracted to. For countries under ESMA, retail clients will have the following leverages: 30:1 on most forex pairs, 20:1 on major indices indices,starting leverage of 5:1 on shares, 20:1 on most commodities and 2:1 on cryptos. To calculate your overall account leverage, you would need to calculate a weighted-average of your positions on each market. In some countries like Australia, leverage can be up to 200:1. You can visit the next link to find out more about our different leverage levels: https://www.ig.com/uk/compare-our-leveraged-trading
  11. Hi @rwolst, due to new regulations that came in to force, we can no longer offer most US ETFs to retail clients in ESMA regulated countries. This is probably the reason as to why your orders are getting rejected.
  12. Hi @ChrisDrain, as @cryptotrader has mentioned, uk shares are traded in pence rather than pounds. Therefore you bought the share at £5.057 and if you had closed out at £5.15, it would have realised a gain of 9 pence per share, which amounts to a profit of £13 for 140 shares.
  13. Hi @OllyB777, yes you are correct. When dealing on shares, there is a commission for entering and exiting the trade, both on CFD and Share dealing. These charges are taken from your account when you open the position and then when you close it. As you mentioned, there is also an overnight funding charge on CFDs and a borrowing cost if you are going short the share. You can find our charges and commissions on the following links. CFD: https://www.ig.com/uk/spread-betting-cfds-charges Share dealing: https://www.ig.com/uk/investments/share-dealing/costs-fees
  14. Hi @JShaw, we do not actually reset demo accounts but you can apply to open a new demo with a different email address.
  15. Weak retail figures in the US have spilled over to most major stock markets, with European stocks set to open lower this morning. The 1.2% decline in retail sales for the month of December, the biggest drop in almost ten years, have brought new fears that we are facing a global economic slowdown. The DJIA closed 104 points lower at 25,439.39, the S&P 500 closed 7 points lower at 2,745.73, whilst the Nasdaq managed to close in the positive with a gain of 6.6 points at 7,426.96. China's lower than expected inflation figures for the month of January have only added to ongoing concerns of a global slowdown in growth. China's consumer price index came in at a rise of 1.7%, lower than the expected figure of 1.9% polled by Reuters. These lingering concerns about the future of growth had most of China's stocks trading slightly lower on Friday, with he Shanghai composite down 0.62%, the Hang Seng index down 1.64% and the Shenzhen composite largely flat. Following the Chinese stocks, the Nikkei 225 was down 1.23% and the Topix was 0.88% lower. Donald Trump has reportedly agreed to sign a spending bill to avoid a second US government shutdown but it comes hand in hand with declaring a national emergency to receive funding for his Mexican wall in order to stop the "national security and humanitarian crisis at the border". Oil is continuing its three month rally as Brent crude oil prices have hit a high for 2019, above $65 per barrel. The West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were trading at around $55 a barrel, 0.6% higher than its previous settlement. This price rally is mostly due to OPEC cutting production in a bid to tighten market conditions and increase oil prices. Asian overnight: An overwhelmingly negative end to the week in Asia has seen sharp losses across Japan, China, and Hong Kong. Australia provided the one flash of green on an otherwise red session. Part of this pessimism comes as the US-China trade talks draw to an end once more, with a major breakthrough seemingly likely today. On the data front, Chinese inflation fell sharply to 1.7%, from 1.9%. Meanwhile, Japanese industrial production remained in negative growth for December. UK, US and Europe: Looking ahead, the UK focus remains in play, with the latest retail sales figures hoping to escape the downturn seen in yesterday’s US figures. In the US session, markets will be closely watching out for any announcements as the US-China trade talks draw to a close. Also make sure to keep an eye out for the latest Empire state manufacturing survey, Baker Hughes rig count, and Michigan consumer confidence data. We are also expecting to see Donald Trump call a national state of emergency in a bid to build his wall. On the UK side, we saw Theresa May lose yet another vote in parliament, making it even more difficult to gain any concessions from the EU. Economic calendar - key events and forecast (times in GMT) Source: Daily FX Economic Calendar 9.30am – UK retail sales (January): expected to rise 0.6% MoM. Market to watch: GBP crosses 1.30pm – US Empire State mfg index (February): index to rise to 6 from 3.9.
