  1. On multiple occasions, after I have moved my stop loss towards the price to achieve breakeven or lock in some profit, the IG platform publishes the acceptance notification and then subsequently deletes the stop loss altogether... not just move it to a previously established position, but remove it all together! Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Is it an known issue? Has it been raised with technical support and is there anything being done about it?
  2. Hi, Did you ever get an answer on this? I was just wondering the same thing. Something like the F12 button on Meta Trader would be good.. and so simple to implement.
  3. It's a nice way to track performance over timeframes. Saves me having to pull historical data and plot my own charts. I can think of a few ways to add features, in addition to making it available on all platforms as previously requested. How about: - Ability to compare respective periods across months, quarters and years. Sometimes a particular time of year/month/week is more performant than others... would be good to see and analyze that at a glance. - Ability to personalize by adding ones own draw down and draw up levels - Ability to click a point on the chart a jump to t
  4. The second the ECB press conference finished, and I entered my trade, suddenly the IG system stops displaying market data. Status page says everything is operational, but not for me. What is going on?
  5. The news feed on my trading views has not updated since the 24th August. Any idea how I can get it to restart?

    I see your long bias is paying off this week. The news tells me that the refined copper production outlook by Rio Tinto has been cut recently. So a potential shortage of supply. Do you think this is the reason for the recent surge upwards
  7. Am just trying to better understand my performance with the trade analytics tool and was wondering how often does the tool update with closed positions?

    Or maybe it is the even more special ship and inverted cup pattern.

    Strangely though, I think the chart pattern is an Elliot Wave airplane chasing an inverted cup and handle. I imagine that everyone will be able to see that and will all follow it's trading expectancy, and thus a continued sideways movement will result.

    Looks like a close below the up trend support, but holding above yesterdays low. For me, I will look for a close below 6227 before attempting a short, just as you also conclude.

    Copper looks like it is in a very interesting place. My thinking... Demand is dropping as factories are slow to get back to work and GDP is falling in the major economies. On a positive note, demand in China, the biggest market, would appear to be coming back. On the supply side, mining has help up during the response to Covid_19 and supply seems strong. Lower demand, higher supply and price at a 2 year high... perhaps a correction is due. I am considering a short position and will start thinking about an entry level.

    Interesting analysis. I wonder if AUD can maintain its strength given how low the Australian interest rate is. With no carry trade benefit and the economy in the biggest contraction for the last 30 years, I feel it does not currently offer a good expectation of return. However, as you say, it is very buoyant. Maybe the speculative market is mistaking general dollar weakness for risk on sentiment.
  13. Currently you cannot short certain stocks because around the world the various stock markets, central banks, government authorities and regulators banned shorting unless you actually hold the underlying asset as part of dealing with negative market volatility during the Covid-19 crisis. These rulings apply regardless of what instrument you trade. To short one of these controlled stocks you have to demonstrate that you hold the actual stock and are actually hedging, not shorting. If you look on the internet, you will find that each country and stock market lists those companies that cannot be
