  1. Actually the Yahoo data is present for some stocks but not all. There is data for VOD but not CNA and CPI, for example. Edit: actually I was looking at Vodaphone USA.
  2. Anybody know where I can view the strike prices and expiry dates for UK stock options? I see Yahoo has an 'Options' tab which provides this information for US stock but is blank for UK stocks.
  3. I am quite interested in what is going on in the Bund this morning, fortunately when I attempt to place an order I see the below message: Closing only: Market unavailable to open Anybody know why?
  4. What is the best way to connect with developers with IG API experience for a piece of work?
  5. Whatever sell call price I selected and enter stake the margin requirement is the same. Is that not odd?
  6. Hi, I have had a read of the below article on options: https://www.ig.com/uk/glossary-trading-terms/option-spread-definition It states "sell a call with a strike of 150 for a £2.50 premium (which you receive)." When I enter my stake in the order window my margin (minimum of £407.57 for a stake of £1, a little too much to place a test trade), which I assume is my risk, is calculated but I don't see anything about the premium due for selling the option. Is the article an accurate reflection of how the IG options work or is it more general? Can anybody point me to some documentation explaining how short calls are actually managed by the platform? Thanks
