  1. Whilst you can trade certain currency pairs, we don't offer physical delivery (i.e. you wouldn't be able to withdraw) any Chinese Yuan.
  2. Currency risk which way? If you're betting £1 a point then there isn't really any currency risk between that trade and your base currency (i.e. the currency you will be settling the trade in). Your profit and lose will tick in GBP so GBPCAD isn't an issue. There would only be a currency risk (when referenced against your base currency of account) if you're trading the CFD which is denominated in USD or CAD currency - depending on the listing. Only then would a GBPCAD / cable hedge be required.
  3. exactly that - the order type is only important for how you buy the shares in relation to it's price point. If you're looking to 'buy and hold' as a strategy then you can use use either order type.
  4. thanks for the feedback - I'll make sure to pass it on to the charts team. Whilst we don't have the SD Channel option, we do have the regular SD indicator which may be of interest.
  5. If you were to click the three line menu and 'open market in new window'... You can then see the epic in the top URL
  6. Thanks for sharing tehka - interesting idea.
  7. Nice idea thanks for sharing. I'll make sure to give this a watch.
  8. Unfortunately daily statements can't be turned off as it's a legal requirement for us to send them out whenever there is a change to your account. The only thing i can suggest is setting up a rule in your email client to automatically move them to a specific folder if you so wish. With that said, its worth keeping an eye on them so you're fully aware of what is happening on your account.
  9. An index price quoted by the exchange is a indication of the sum of the constituents within that group - it is not an asset you can trade. For example you can't 'buy a FTSE index'. To get a price you can trade off, IG will take the direct feed from the underlying futures exchange - for example the FTSE futures - and make a fair value adjustment to bring it back to a more accurate spot price. This means stripping away any dividends between now and then, and taking off interest. This means there will always be a discrepancy with the highly publicized index price. Alternatively you can always trade the Futures price on our platform which is a direct feed from the corresponding Futures exchange
  10. We have this tool which may be of use https://etfscreener.ig.com With US ETFs it's worth remembering that there may be some which you can't trade (based on your personal circumstance). That screener should show you all the ones we currently offer. If you would like one which isn't on the list, let us know and we can look to add.
  11. Yes that's correct - it'll be the same.
  12. thanks for the update @who - I'll certainly flag the demo account for a passive review just to make sure there isn't an underlying issue. All the best, and always feel free to reach out if something isn't performing as expected.
  13. At it's most basic level (with a caveat that this is an indicator for educational purposes and there are more complexities such as internal risk limits etc) if you were to short £1/pt of a UK listed company, and you were the only one who was looking to short that company on the IG platform, IG would look to go to market to short 100 shares in that company and hedge your position. IG offer you the opportunity to not own the underlying shares, however we do not bet against you and therefore would hedge your trade in the underlying market.
  14. I guess the most simple answer could be the reason here (as this isn't expected behavior and we haven't had other reports of this) but are you logged in to the same account on both devices? Can you check but making sure these two locations marry up? (MyIG on desktop and account number on mobile).
  15. great thanks for the context - we'll reach out to the team behind it and let you know as soon as we have an answer. If there are others who are using this feature and it's causing MT4 to crash - please let me know by commenting on this thread.
  16. Is this in relation to the following? Assume ASX? In it's simplest form, your open position would be exactly the same amount up - i.e. £180 better off.
  17. Hey casey - I've passed this on to @TimP who is reaching out directly to those who own the plugin. I don't think we've had other reports outside this thread so it does seem a strange one and not related to MT4 specifically. I imagine I know the answer, but would you like a call RE: basic troubleshooting on MT4?
  18. Below gives a snapshot answer to recession worries. Due to the recent trade war events, Goldman now estimates a cumulative drag on GDP of 0.6%, including a 0.2% drag from the latest escalation.

  19. Hey folks - let me get our Trading Services IT team on this. Apologies the thread slipped past this morning.

  23. Heikin-Ashi candles are now available on the IG trading platform for both desktop and mobile. This feature has been one of the more highly requested additions to charts as these types of candles are commonly used by traders looking at identifying trends visually without the need of complex analysis. How can I see Heikin-Ashi candles on the IG dealing platform? Turning on Heikin-Ashi candles is simple. If you want to see these candles; Simply open the main menu by right clicking on the charts Navigate to “Types” and bring up the second menu list Select “Heikin-Ashi” - the candles will appear straight away How are Heikin-Ashi candles different from regular HLOC candles? You can read more about what Heikin-Ashi candlestick are on IG.com, but to see a simple visual on the difference and how these could be used for identifying possible trends, just check out the charts below. Both charts are the same time fame on the same asset, one with regular candles and the other with Heikin-Ashi candles.

  24. Beat me to the notification! I will be updating all those who have queried this tomorrow - both on and off Community.
  25. Sorry this one slipped by - I don't believe this is on the roadmap, but I'll certainly feed it back to our developers.
