I G forum traders talking to traders

Recommended Posts

On broker forums, there is the risk the broker will market products, into the discussion forums, through various new threads about new products.It is also possible some posters are employed by the broker, to specifically promote new products.


It is also possible, clients are posting about new products they want to see introduced.


With this information in mind, traders should only be influenced by their own analysis and profitability of the trades/systems/instruments they learn on forums.They should not be influenced into trading new krypton currencies that are highly speculative, as a result of new forum threads about these extremely volatile instruments.


Everything is possible in terms of traders being influenced by forum discussions.

Thanks for the feedback. We are as transparent as possible on IG Community, and we'll make sure anyone who works here will have the IG Staff and icon next to their name, as well as clearly indicate in the appropriate section when new things become available (for example Ripple / new trading platform features etc).


But you are very right - personal analysis and a good understanding of your strategy is incredibly important.

Hi James


You are offering prizes for posting, what I see on your forum, adding more sections will improve the forum from trader's point of view and will encourage more visits.


Take a look at trade2win forums set up here:




There are many sections missing, having more sections will impulsively encourage clicks and visits.The curiosity will inspire the cats to click and visit.


You designed this initial forum from Ig's view and bias, as to what section IG i.e you require in the forum.It still gives the impression of a forum for IG.


The following sections are from a trader's point of view and what traders require to see.I don't need I G forum or any forums, but I thought of showing you a trader's point of view.

Will I G ban traders giving a profitable methods, systems, ideas and education?


On private trading forums, If successful traders post free  profitable systems, methods and ideas,  the regular vendors on private forums lose out . Everybody stops buying  their systems, methods and education, so they start attacking the profitable traders,who are giving away good methods etc, who  are banned because the private forum regular educators  can't make money from them.They can't sell any education, because it is freely given away, they don't click advertisements and they make the blind resident forum failures feel guilty of selling useless education i .e scamming.

Who will the private forum educators sell to, if everybody on the forum is profitable,except the regular  failures?.They need learners, failures and new traders to click ads on private forums.The forums get income from ads.

Why should I G ban profitable customers?


I would have thought, I G would benefit by having more customers who are profitable, the more new customers they retain the more execution income I g receive, the profitable and long term customers and increasing customer numbers thorough retention can lead to bigger income year after year.



The private forums prefer trading failures,learners and amateurs.The profitable traders don't fit in with private forums,They prefer the failures to keep clicking ads on private forums.

    • 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.
