  1. Breaking News: COVID-19: 'Major incident' declared in London due to hospital pressure https://news.sky.com/story/covid-19-major-incident-declared-in-london-due-to-hospital-pressure-12182329 Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has declared a "major incident" in the capital due to rising coronavirus cases threatening to overwhelm hospitals. City Hall said growing infection rates are "putting immense pressure on an already stretched NHS", with the number of people on mechanical ventilators up by 42% - from 640 to 908 - in the week up to 6 January.
  2. I'm seeing problems with the Demo API in fact I can't even logon, either through my own application or on the API Companion. I have reset my username and password and created a new API Key, all to no avail. I suspect the demo systems is experiencing some sort of outage, can somebody from IG check please? cc @CharlotteIG
  3. Where is the evidence for this? Just because the value of Bitcoin has risen recently does not mean it's a bona fide currency. I think it's a speculative bubble, the price is going up because people are bidding prices up simply because they think it will go higher.
  4. I don't believe you can trade US stock options with IG.
  5. I'm done with this thread. You don't respond to the points raised by anybody who doesn't agree with you. I'll leave you to it, you can post your memes and theories that go against practically all the medical and government advice out there. If you're right then this must be the biggest and most sophisticated conspiracy (with the most participants across all walks of life) in the history of the world.
  6. There are a multitude of reasons why the death rate in the 2nd wave is less than the 1st: many of the most susceptible died in the 1st wave, we understand the virus more now so have more effective treatments to prevent death, younger people make up a larger percentage of the case etc. More reasons here: https://www.ft.com/content/b3801b63-fbdb-433b-9a46-217405b1109f Community immunity would also mean less cases. Cases in Sweden, however, are on a par with other countries at the moment: Also, even if your fortunate enough to not die there are a multitude of long term health
  7. Not looking too good in Sweden at the moment: Source: https://www.ft.com/content/1e0ac31d-5abf-4a18-ab3e-eec9744a4d31
  8. Sorry, it was not directed at you, I just quoted what you said.
  9. Can't we keep this forum meme free? I come here for trading/markets discussion. It's turning into Facebook with all the conspiracy theories, memes etc!
  10. All stock indices in positive territory today, S&P500 at all time high: Built using https://www.excelpricefeed.com/
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Stock indices looking strong this morning; USD weaker: Powered by https://www.excelpricefeed.com/
