  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 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.

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.
  16. Hi David, Yes Bed and ISAs are still available, and you would have to call us to do it. Daniela
  17. 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. Economic calendar - key events and forecast (times in GMT) Source: Daily FX Economic Calendar UK Parliament to vote on whether to seek an extension to Article 50 7am – German CPI (February, final): CPI to be 1.6% YoY.

  20. 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%.

  21. 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.

  24. 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.
