I found out by trial -and-error,  thesolution to the  'technical issue' !   (Which the technical help did not know ! )      You have to convert any balances into your base currency  and then you can move amounts of your base currency  to wherever you want.  If you want to use your funds in their new home in a different currency you must then convert them again.    That means if your base Currency is say UK£  and you have a balance  of US$ in one account  and you want to use it to buy a US$ denominated holding  in another account,  you have to Convert the Dollars in Account One  into your base UK£.    Then you can move UK£ from Account One to Account Two.   Then in Account Two  you must convert your UK£ back into US$ and then you have dollars to what it was you wanted to do in US$.     In fairness, I thought I would lose a bit of a fee or spread on each conversion,   but, unless I was just lucky with the way the currencies moved, while I was mucking about,  IG did seem to do each conversion at the same UK: $ Rate.     What it does mean is that if you change your mind about whatever you wanted to use your US$ to do,  you must decided in which currency you wish to hold your balance while you wait

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
