IG Community forum structure idea

Recommended Posts

Hi James


The crypto and forex should be separate sections, possibly with subsections for technical analysis, systems and methods, general analysis without trade set ups.Information should be easy to find.


Same applies to Indices with subsections for technical analysis, systems and methods, general analysis without trade set ups.


The trading strategy section needs separate sections, to enable users to seek information easily.


Only pointing this out .

Hi  - thanks for the proposed ideas. I will certainly look into separating crypto given how popular it has been over the last few months, however this will probably take a couple of weeks to implement. I shall also look at the other points going forwards. Thanks for the suggestions on how to make the community better! 


If anyone else has any idea please let me know in the comments section below.

Hi James


I have created a sketch site to give you an idea for changes.The menus at the top relate to 

1)trading systems method

2)technical analysis

3)Fundamental analysis


5)Ig academy

6)Weekly analysis

7)option trading

8)risk and money management




The menus in the middle relate to indices trading, there should be separate sections for forex, options, crypto, stocks, commodities and investments etc. If you look at indices menu , it is so clear and sticky.Some of these trading related sections don't require solutions and accept.Solutions and accept is for I G clients who have I G related query.


Traders are less likely to bother with trade ideas, this is due to uncertainty of performance in the future and lack of track records of idea providers.Trade ideas are less likely to generate profits for traders and IG in spread income, but give traders profitable systems , they are more likely to trade them , make profit and provide I G with consistent spread income.


Here is the sketch site.

Hi james 



Can you allow IG forum site to upload excel sheets.The only place to upload excel is to free wordpress sites.You consider this as spam, therefore this forum should be providing excel upload facilities.



Here are excel sheets with all the losses for this week and trades, excel with all trades here.

Hi James 


You need to give a separate section to PIA signals .This is a commercial enterprise in a forum for traders, where other traders are discussing their trades. It is not a forum to show  signals to generate  trading volume for I G.


Have it where the weekly signals are  posted on I G , I do visit them.

Professional signals is subjective , professionals make money from trading (that is their profession) not from selling signals , technical anylysis and paid running educational sites. Most likely amateurs "those who can do, those who can't teach or sell road maps of the trading gold".

There is problem both for the image of the forum, one that I G uses it's forum to market it's products, which is not  true. The second issue is the signals are going to influence many members into trading these, as a result I G  may get more income from spreads.


Thoughts become reality, any thoughts they present will become reality.I saw some of their signals , they need improving .

No doubt some will get upset by the disruption to their long held view that everyone else is always wrong. I welcome the input  especially when it comes from someone with twice the experience and 10 times the education than that of the pretend professionals who would prefer a clear run at suckering the unsuspecting and not having their stall undermined by well thought out and demonstrably better contrary analysis.

Hi all. Thanks for the recommendation on which posts should / shouldn't be included in the general day to day postings. After an internal conversation I think for now we will not be taking any action, however sentiment has been noted. 


I believe that if other Community members are happy with it, along with the fact that each post is clearly noted as being a PIA post, doesn't promote or link to an external site and doesn't breach our terms of service or community guidelines, then it's ok. I hope it induces trade discussion ideas among members, educates from a TA perspective, and also increases awareness of a part of the IG platform.

Hi  (and  in a separate post) - crypto has now be moved out from regular FX. I won't be sub categorising these message boards until there is significantly more interaction. Let me know if you can see any posts I have missed on my manual process.

    • 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.
