They also have the date of GE completely wrong. GE are reporting 30th AM. Not the 25th. You're welcome IG. I must admit I am also extremely stumped at the misses by AMZN and GOOG, think this is what you were getting at with "What was the market thinking". Will be interesting to see what happens with ^IXIC (US Tech 100) tomorrow. It's been trading in a very clear descending channel on the 4 hour charts for a while now and is at the bottom of that channel currently at the time of writing. However myself and a lot of others were thinking a killer AMZN & GOOG earnings would get the Bull by the horns but it looks like it could tank. Seems like the easiest move is down at the moment for the Nasdaq. So either it will bounce off that channel and continue in the range or we're going to see a break to the downside. I'll be watching it closely and will likely enter a position once the market open carnage has calmed and a clear trend is in place. ?
Whilst I appreciate that IG is a broker and does need to make money. The fact that 79% of retail clients lose money should mean their business is very profitable. However, I am getting pretty sick of seeing a stock that I want to day trade on my scanners only to find that this market is in close only mode, unavailable to trade or something similar. I understand that IG are not the only ones, Suretrader do this in a little less blatant fashion by removing leverage for these stocks however my main point is my first one. Why am I not able to trade the stocks that I want to trade? It's doing my head in and means I then need to go to other brokers that I have with a much worst platform. Whilst I love the IG trading platform, the basic fact that 79% of their retail clients are losing money means that they should be able to stomach this cost for those that are more experienced. Any thoughts? Would love to hear from IG directly about this one. ?
