Why IG limited my live account? How is this industry working?



Hello everybody,


I am a customer of IG for more then 2 years now. I'm a full time trader and trade different markets. Since last year i developed a strategy for trading the Digital 100s 5 minutes market for EURUSD and GBPUSD. My accuracy on this strategy is over 85%. Since i started to use my strategy and trade Digital 100s i have made consistant profits on a weekly basis. Recentelly because i was doing constant profits IG limited my account and now i can't trade anymore Digital 100s. Now here is my question IG and you better come with a explanation to what i am asking. Why would you limit my account and not let me to trade? Why do you even offer Digital 100s? If a trader just like me trade and loose money everything would be fine, and he/she would be able to trade without limitations,correct? But if a customer/trader like me makes consistant profits that's bad for company pockets and you put a limit in my account not to be able to trade anymore!!! Why? How is this industry working? This is not fair and i will not stop here! I will go to all regulatory bodies from Uninted Kingdom if IG does not do something regarding this! For what even IG offer brokerage if i get limited because what i'm doing constant profits?

As from the 1st of August 2018 IG will no longer have Digital 100's available to trade due to European Securities Markets Authority (ESMA).  So no matter if the UK leave the EU we still have to comply with their rules.

I guess the only answer to this is to find a broker outside of EU authority - the USA perhaps?

Tbh 85% success isn’t that difficult from a binary perspective. That’s the whole point... if you’re bidding on a digital 100 when it’s priced at say, 90/95 that’s basically saying there is an HUGE likelihood of it becoming right and settling at 100. You can bid 20 times at this level, statistically you’re going to win 19 of those times, but you only need to lose once and you’d have lost the same amount as those 19 wins...

interested on the reply tho

    • 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.
