  1. Hello


    Can anyone tell me if the oil price going negative means that the IG price I pay can fall bellow zero?

    For eg if say I have a long position at £1 a point on crude and it was at 2000, I would expect to only lose a maximum of £2000 if no stop loss was set. Does going negative mean it can fall bellow zero?

    This may be a silly question to most but I don't trade oil.

    I have my own post on this today.  Couldn't amend Stop OR Close Trade.  Info was actually missing from the chart.....refreshed the page and the trade was over......at a loss.  It's not the first time it's happened in 12 months either.

    More fool me I guess, but i will be bringing it up with IG as I screen recorded it.


    I think I need to start doing that.

    Did you get an info on this matter?

    No info yet.

    I have got a felling that because I was in profit for Wall st March, they didn't want me to be able to close it and take the money. They are most likely gonna try and manipulate the price to close me out at a loss on Friday.

  4. Hello

    I want to close a Wall st Mar 20 contract, but when I try to close it I get a message " this contract is due to expire. Please open positions in the next contract." I don't want to open a new position, I want to close the current position. 

    Any one know why it won't close. I have never had this problem before.

  5. Hi


    Yes, that's what I think. I have seen a few traders who use youtube etc and they can bet smaller. How can IG grow their customers when the new rules come into force. Smaller bet size will allow them to learn on a smaller account.

  6. Hello


    I am noticing a prompt when I login which is offering the option to change to the professional account from my retail account.

    This is to do with the ESMA thing which is going on at the moment.

    If I changed to a pro account and I decided it wasn't for me, could I change back to a retail account somewhere down the line?


  7. Hello


    I have heard about the EU proposals on a crackdown in the spread betting markets recently, but can anyone tell me how exactly this would impact on a retail trader like myself. I have made a small amount of money trading indices and forex over the past 2 years.


    Would I have to increase my account to keep old trades (that are in profit) open?

    Is it all markets that will be affected or just digital 100's etc?

    Will it only affect new positions which will be opened when the new rules come in to force.
