  1. Agree with all comments - I only trade USA stocks - so Tesla (made a bomb on that in Jan till I got a bit too greedy - still out with a great overall profit) and DOW as already trade them at various times in the last 2 months
  2. Agree with this totally - certainly for a newbie sitting on the fence as to action to take
  3. Hi dmedin You post today had me interested and questioning the meaning. Until I checked it out. I see exactly your point now if it had happened where would the world be now? Somebody would else would have 'found' America BUT would they have done? CAn't say But market wise we are trying to 'beat the market' or play with the professionals - foresight and vision and TRUST in trustworthy people is only the way I mainly succeed on here. PS I do not day trade but have done well trading (started 40 years ago. I really like and checked out many of your posts (over the last 6 months) as you
  4. Hi, It is something to do with my settings in Chrome causing the problem - will fix later - have a work around at present by using Microsoft Edge (new version from 2020 which IS superior to old one supposedly)
  5. Hi briefly trying Edge out out and looked ok - but only to solve my immediate problem - have Edge on one screen and Chrome on the second and works fine - will have to look at the set up to fix of chrome going forward
  6. I got to speak to helpdesk for 45 mins yesterday and IT IS a chrome issue - they will fix it later but - as now using Microsoft Edge with FULL capacity - suggest to use this as has excellent reviews as a substitute for chrome - may well do myself. Regards David
  7. Hi The account is functioning on Mobile APP John AND PROVIDING CORRECT UP TO DATE PRICES FOR US SHARES I can verify this by my account on Hargreaves Lansdown - but IG support not answering the phone at the time of post - most unusual. V surprised not reported by anyone else.
  8. Hi I AGREE - it does not open on new trading platform - but before selecting the IG open and look at old platform you can trade - looks like there is a problem there - as IG logo is not correct IMHO. 🙂 Tried calling tech support but no answer at present.
  9. Hi Shaun, There is no time limit - the only consideration on spread betting or CFD is daily interest charges. I am not an expert - but keep trades running for hours to 2 weeks mainly trading the DOW . Holding individual shares - there is no charge only graduated buying and selling costs + FX charges depending on their currency. You will also notice that spreads are much narrower (in your favour ) during trading hours eg UK 8am to 430pm or US 230pm to 9pm (UK times adjusted). Commodities I cannot answer on. Regards David
