  1. Morning all! I have noticed recently that KIID files are not linking to the correct information. For example: KIID file for "Physical Rhodium ETC" displays information on Euro stoxx 600 and sometimes a Not found error! KIID file for "Ishares Automation and Robotics" displays information on MSCI EUROPE EX CW, a Subfund of the SICAV.BNP PARIBAS EASY Many more examples, but just wondered if this is a known problem? Previously the correct info would display. Thanks in advance.
  2. Greetings. In the past year I was buying "VelocityShare 3x Long Silver ETN" shares listed in the USA. Then a few weeks ago I tried to buy some more, but found out that I could only close my position (sell shares) and was unable to buy anymore. I called IG and they told me this was because I was a retail client, and not a professional client, and the new regulations meant that I could not purchase said shares unless I was a professional client. My question is, where is the sense in applying new ESMA rules to Shares? In that, I am buying the shares out right, there is no leverage or borrowing? Or am I missing something? Thoughts/guidance welcome! Thanks in advance.
  3. Evening peeps. Generic question here on margin requirements. I trade using guarantee stops. When I try to open a position say on Horizon Medical Marijuana ETF, the ticket says the MINIMUM Guarantee stop is 12.5%. So far so good. However when I try to open the position, it fails, because the margin required (non guarantee stop) is actually 25%. Why bother stating the minimum guarantee stop is 12.5% when the system will only allow me to open a position with 25% margin using Guaranteed/Non Guaranteed stops? Any info appreciated. Thanks.
  4. Evening peeps. I have an ISA account with IG. When searching, the search engine yields results which are not eligible for ISA tax wrapper. This can be quite annoying especially after transferring funds into my ISA account to realise I cannot buy the shares listed. For example, Velocity Shares 3x Long Gold ETN Velocity Shares 3x Long Silver ETN Is it possible just to include ISA eligible results in the ISA search engine? Cheers!
  5. Evening peeps. Have a question regarding guarantee stops. There was a time when moving a guarantee stop in a profitable position on a spread betting instrument, would release equity, or at the very least, release the original stake. I have positions on Horizon Medical Marijuana ETF, and would like to release equity by moving my Guarantee stop. Looks like this is not possible, so the only way is to sell, and then buy back in. When did this happen and why? Now the funny thing is, I am able to release equity on Spot Gold positions to the point the bet becomes zero risk. Any info appreciated. Cheers!
