  1. This is the key for me. It doesn't matter if you have more losers than winners, what really matters is how you manage your risk.
  2. This is a very good article explaining the what Covid-19 actually is and how we can fight it: https://www.economist.com/by-invitation/2020/08/10/nicholas-christakis-on-fighting-covid-19-by-truly-understanding-the-virus
  3. It's a problem for me also. IG just need to ensure the numbers are consistent, I don't know which number to believe as the API shows a different number to some of their webpages.
  4. I don't trade off it, I use it to compare markets, download and analyse my trades/positions etc. I would rather build my own view in Excel than use the watchlists on the web platform.
  5. Stock indices looking strong this morning; USD weaker: Powered by https://www.excelpricefeed.com/
  6. Has anybody from IG had a chance to look into this? I am still seeing mismatches, also between the dailyfx website and the IG website. For example the S&P500: 59% short: https://www.dailyfx.com/sp-500 50% long: https://www.ig.com/uk/marketanalysis/ig-indices/us-spx-500
  7. The question was about spreadbetting not CFDs. CFDs are quite different and like you point out do have an exchange rate factor if the instrument is quoted in a currency different to your account currency.
  8. The NASDAQ is not really a USD asset, it is an index. When you spreadbet on the NASDAQ you are betting an amount of GBP per point move in the index. There is no GBPUSD conversion to take into account. The amount of margin required is based on how much (GBP) per point you bet. See here for details: https://www.ig.com/uk/help-and-support/spread-betting-and-cfds/fees-and-charges/what-are-igs-indices-spread-bet-product-details
  9. This doesn't correspond to what is published on the ONS website. Excess deaths this year are much higher than the past 5 years average (top two lines): From https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/bulletins/deathsregisteredweeklyinenglandandwalesprovisional/weekending28august2020
  10. Hi, I've built an Excel Add-in which makes this very easy. You can also download your transaction and activity history: https://www.excelpricefeed.com/userguide/positions-trade-history-download-excel-ig-index Here is an example of live positions in Excel using the Add-in: I hope this helps.
  11. I've built an Excel Add-in which you can use to easily download watchlists as well as other account data, prices etc into Excel. For example, here is one of my watchlists that I have downloaded into Excel: It uses a simple Excel formula so each time I refresh the sheet the data is updated automatically. https://www.excelpricefeed.com/userguide/watchlists-ig-index I hope this helps!

  13. Equity indices all positive this morning, especially the DAX and CAC (I suspect following agreement on the EU support package). GBP stronger, EUR little changed: Powered by https://www.excelpricefeed.com
  14. It's working for me on Live but not on Demo.
  15. I am now seeing this problem as well (it was working for me last week). The /gateway/deal/accounts endpoint is returning a server 500 error: {"errorCode":"error.client.accounts.list.generic-error"} It is broken on both the demo and prod API. @CharlotteIG Can somebody at IG look into this as a matter of urgency? Thanks.
