  1. I don't understand why @IGCharlotte doesn't often reply when tagged, or why other representatives of IG don't bother to address issues raised on here.
  2. If a client buys a DFB contract dated 2029, which most of them are, how is it legal and/or FCA compliant for IG to end the contract earlier by forcing clients to close prematurely even when their accounts are not on margin call? The premise of the trade is that IG takes the equivalent underlying position and funds it with the daily interest charges so why is it not able to hold the position open indefinitely?
  3. @CharlotteIG I'll keep asking this question until it finally gets the courtesy of an answer. Why don't you lay out these options in the same intuitive format as the commodity, index and FX options already available on the platform? Also, why not list them under "OPT" with those others?
  4. Is it a spread bet or a CFD? If the latter you will need to make a "negligible value claim" to HMRC for CGT purposes to crystallise the loss in the appropriate year to off-set or carry forward against current/future gains.. No idea how you get IG to wind up the position. as possibly the shares could trade again cos Americans are weird like that with bankrupt companies. Isn't it "closing only" so you can get a token USc 2.5 by selling?
  5. @CharlotteIG Also please note that in the pop-in-from-the-side display, before you click "Add to workspace" the strikes and PUT/CALL designator are visible for Tesla but completely absent for Beyond Meat except briefly on mouse-over.
  6. @CharlotteIG I'll keep asking until this question gets answered. Why don't you lay out these options in the same intuitive format as the commodity, index and FX options already available on the platform? Also, why not list them under "OPT" with those others?
  7. For you to buy then an intermediary has to sell. That leaves them short and having to try to hedge their position or be left exposed.. Ask yourself what intermediary would want to put themselves in that position?
  8. @CharlotteIG Why aren't these laid out in the same logical easy-to-understand format of commodity, index and forex options, seeing as the template is already there. And why on Earth not have them listed under the "OPT" menu?
  9. As usual - no comment from IG as to whether they might introduce this or why they haven't previously.
  10. @CharlotteIG Can we have an answer please. There are several other unhappy posters on another thread.
  11. If you want long exposure to Bitcoin you could consider buying Microstrategy Inc as a kind of proxy call option seeing as they have a policy of hoarding Bitcoin, but they have run up a lot recently despite Bitcoin retracing significantly from its recent high, so allow for a delay effect. I would try to value the company with and without the Bitcoin stake to get an idea how much fluff is in the price, cos if everyone suddenly dumps their Bitcoin at the same time it could end up being a virtual asset that is virtually worthless.
  12. A log scale would have been interesting too, plus a comparison with silver.
