The Contributor of the Month for January RESULTS

Recommended Posts

The Contributor of the Month for January is over! I would like to thank everyone who contributed this month to help bring the Community to life, and apologies about the later than usual confirmation to the winners. This is the third time in as many months that we've given away £500 worth of prizes (over three places), however it will be the last competition until further notice. For those who are unaware, you can check out the original post here.


Hopefully the more veteran members here will have seen activity and discussion increase over the last few months on the back of this, and we hope this will continue as we slowly integrate Community into the wider IG ecosystem. 


small.pngAs before, the decision making process was a tricky one. We didn't want to focus purely on post count, and instead we were looking for the Community member who helped bring the community to life. This would include posting interesting trade ideas, helping others, answering questions, and adding interesting rich media such as picture, videos, and links. 


1st place goes to  who has continued to provide a good post count, especially on cryptocurrencies, and viewership of the forum. He authored 13 solutions, accepted 18, and had a 'Likes to Post Count' ratio (i.e. how many likes received / post count) of 0.294.


2nd place goes to  who is a long term community member who authored 7 solutions, accepted 1, and had a 'Likes to Post Count' ratio (i.e. how many likes received / post count)  of 0.203.


This month the 3rd place was slightly different and reserved for someone new to IG Community. This doesn't necessarily mean someone who joined in the month of January, but someone who may have posted for the first time, or significantly increased their post count and involvement over this period. In this instance  with his 'Leverage ETF risk parity portfolio' post, inclusion in the ESMA discussion, and comments and questions on some other posts in the forum, is the winner. 


Thank you very much to everyone who participated, and I'm sure you'll all join me in congratulating the above winners.

If  and  can let me know which trading books they'd like (either via private message or adding a comment to this thread) I'll get this sorted. I'll send amazon vouchers to the emails associated with your live accounts so please make sure these details are up to date. Thanks :)

    • 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.
