  1. Hi all, I opened a small spread betting position on Lloyds stocks, to get used to it as I normally trade Forex. I set a trailing stop loss just inside profit as price rose. When the market opened this morning, price dropped and my trade closed at a loss at a loss of £5.43 (not a great loss but when I increase positions I'd like to know I'm being safe). It seems like a large difference for slippage, or maybe I set the trailing stop up incorrectly. Is here any way somebody can look at the trade to explain what happened? Thanks!

  3. Hi all, Today at US market open it was a minimum of a pound a point to trade NIO. At the same time it was 0.6 for another person. Then a few hours later it was 0.5 for me and then 0.24 while it was still 0.6 for my friend. Why does the min per point change and why would it be different for two people? Many thanks
  4. hi all, I've been spread betting on forex for a few months. I've been using mt4 for the last month using small money as I learn. I generally use 0.10 per point which is equivalent to 10 pence per point. I've been upping the amount as I learn, and won a few trades at 0.50 per point. Then a really good opportunity presented itself and I decided to go for £1 per point. Here is my problem. With a 2 point spread, 0.10 puts me at - 0.20p when I open a trade. 0.40 puts me at -0.80 when I open a trade etc etc When I tried to do £1 per point ... inputting 1.00, it opened me at - £
  5. I have open positions which are not editable. The system shows profit and loss rising and falling but says I have no open positions. Is this likely to translate to the live platform?
  6. Thank you. I'll have a good look. I appreciate the help.
  7. Hi all, I have just come over from Trading 212 where I could open a CFD on shares...Boeing in the case of my example here and closed it a few minutes later with a small loss or profit and I would have just paid the spread etc. Is it different here? I just opened a test CFD on two Boeing shares just to see how it all works, and was willing to lose the few pounds if it went the wrong way. Having closed it on a very small profit (I asked if scalping was okay here and they said yes - just this morning on this forum) I discovered two charges, one for £11.94 and one for £11.93. I'm as
  8. Thanks so much for the quick answer. I really appreciate it!
  9. Hi all, Just a quick question before I make a deposit. Is scalping allowed on CFD's on IG? I'm coming from Trading 212 where the rules state a deal must be open longer than 5 minutes. I'm not a huge trader yet - I enjoy doing small deals that take a few seconds or minutes, in which I either lose or gain a quid or two - or even a few pence on each deal. Also, I see the minimum deposit is £250. Does that mean I have to keep that £250 in my account at all times or can I withdraw some of it and still keep my account open? Many thanks!
