Hi James

Can you first put your own house in order? Before moderating clients comments here

There is no customer service what so ever at your firm.

I am on the look out for another provider, and will be updating the community shortly. So far they are leagues ahead of what is at IG

I have to say I too am a bit worried by this. God knows there are enough public open access forums and quite frankly they are a bit 'wild west'. With some 19,000 IG clients already signed up to the forum I think the main aim should be to promote new posters and not worry about 'quality' posts but instead encourage simple honest discussion.

Doesn’t bother me if the mods are signing off first. TF, yeh I think that’s a by far fetched. 202925, lol someone’s bitter. 

Maybe happy medium and only allow newbies to post in the new section? 

Yep 247 trader, just really had enough of their customer service and general attitude towards retail clients.

Of course quantity doesn't define if something is good or not but I see no reason to introduce a quality bar, that's more likely to put people off rather than encourage engagement, that's why I would prefer to see any promotion directed toward simple honest discussion. If the forum is light and fresh that's more welcoming and the more worked on, more thought out posts that take longer to produce will come from those who wish to produce it. I like to post anything that interests me, it's quality value is for other's to judge and it's not my worry one way or the other.

Thanks for your input chaps. I have restricted discussion to only adding comments to existing threads for the asset and trade talks, and guests won't be able to start new discussions (apart from allowing new threads on the 'New' section).

As previously stated all comments will need to be signed off before they are posted. If there is an obvious lack of value I shall reject the comment, however hopefully we will see a slight uptick in conversation. 

After a week we can review. There are a number of options we can have (e.g. restrict guests comments to only the 'new' section as mentioned above, or be more stringent in the sign off process). 

I personally think it's worth exploring, however yes - we need to (and will!) keep a very close eye on it. 

As always future comments, feedback and thoughts appreciated.

Another couple went last night. I don’t k ow if politicians leaving on ‘principle’ is something to be commended, however the cynic in me think it’s cowardly and for their own personal gain...

johnson for example. Slippery fish with a PM bid coming in soon?

Lots of outrage on twitter (and in the papers) against May who was against Brexit from the start, complaints of betrayal as the deal really means we stay in the EU but with no voice.

Maybe if all the brexiteers who pushed for and campaigned for it would stop quitting and actuallystep up for once it wouldn’t be quite so bad...

No problem @Caseynotes - for those interested the EMEA brief and video are here. Well worth a watch I think...

With the resignation of two UK cabinet members outside a reshuffle for the first time since 1982, what are the implications for markets of the political uncertainty, and how much longer can Prime Minister Theresa May last? Peter Dixon, global financial economist at Commerzbank, tells IGTV he believes that the high-profile resignations could paradoxically unify May’s Cabinet.

New YouGov poll shows May's 'favourability' sinks to an all time low as leave voters abandon her.

After the resignations the cabinet might be right behind her but rebellion from everywhere else is not far away. There have been rumours today that the 1922 committee have received close on the 48 letters from conservative MPs needed to spark a leadership contest.

    • 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. USDOLLAR (DXY) WEEKLY PRICE CHART – APRIL 28, 2022 {{THE_FUNDAMENTALS_OF_BREAKOUT_TRADING}} What is your view on the US Dollar – bullish or bearish?   Apr 28, 2022 | DailyFX Nick Cawley, Strategist
