  1. Forced closing for clients who came up with 100% margin is ridiculous. They will force us to take losses on positions that would turn green a couple months later. But let's not forget that IG is NOT a broker, IG is a casino, we are trading CFDs, not stocks. Once the CFD turns against IG they want out of the position and it doesn't matter who is hurting, they just want out. I guess they haven't found anyone to "buy back" the CFDs from them to let us keep our positions, there is nobody willing to take the other side of the trade on our CFDs because our win ratio is too good.
  2. I clicked buy at 32, 3 min later it was at 42 and my target was around 40. So for me it's lost money as that trade was going to be a really big win. I consider it a lost. You consider it whatever you want, for me if I clicked the trade was made, it was refused by IG but I did the trade, it wasn't just an idea.
  3. We all have the same issue, they removed a lot of good stocks, not just meme stocks. This is going to be very costly. And the worst thing you can't even know until it's too late if you can trade or not some stocks. The other day I tried to buy CCIV which was NOT in the list and my order was refused, which cost me a ton of money in gains I would have made. IG thinks only of their own bottom line, not ours.
  4. These kind of public companies are audited often, not sure how often.
  5. IG is a public company, I don't think that they are going bust.
  6. CFD. But let's say you buy a stock with 10x leverage, IG has to buy that stock with 10 times more money than what you have. That money has to come from somewhere. If you hold for a long time they are just blocking money waiting for you to close the position. Retailers have started to hold positions for much longer periods of time now.
  7. That list that was removed was basically everything I was trading. It seems like they tied too much capital for "low" returns on their end. They are using the pareto principle, concentrating on the 20% of products that make 80% of their money. But for me, without those stocks I'm not going to be profitable. Which means I will just stop trading on IG. I think I'm one of those who spend the most on fees on IG, for this year alone I spent more than 10K on fees. The real issue here is retailers (us) we are buying tons of stocks and holding them for too long, which means th
  8. Refresh, that could mean the position is already closed but you still see it.
  9. IG doesn't care about 150 pounds, I made a quarter million in one day the other day and I closed the trade in deep profit. Your trade ticket says buy to open, which means the system thinks you are trying to BUY a stock you don't have. Close with a stop loss.
  10. Why can't you close ? Closing has never been restricted. When the thing is not working I close with a stop loss.
  11. I'm forced on all my other positions ! Now that stock is at 42, I sent my order at 32, 15000 shares ! That's a ton of money lost because of restrictions that were not here last week.
  12. They didn't let me buy it and it's up now, which means I lost the money I was supposed to make. This same stock I traded last week on which I made a quarter million is now not tradable. They removed the good stocks but they are still visible on the interface, which means we can't know what we can trade or not, I was just waiting to click the button at the right time on that one.
  13. I just tried to buy a stock for 15000 shares at 32, now it's trading for 38 ! That's a lot of money lost for me ! This stock that I was trading just last week ! I'm moving to another broker. What's the point in having stocks in your interface if I can't buy them ??
