IG is busy annoying me



Having traded Oil for £0.25/pt since the margins changed a few weeks ago they have changed the size yesterday to £1/pt WITHOUT any prior notice or communications. I know that I am most probably the smallest fish in their tank but a bit of common decency from them wouldn't go amiss and will be looking at to move my account to a competitor soon.

@JamesIG due to personal circumstances I am not allowed to have a Spreadbetting account and can only trade in a CFD account . I have logged a call and had a few emails from IG but nothing has been resolved so far.

I've just checked and can see that you should now be able to get 0.25 of a £1 contract (i.e. the equivalent of 25p per point movement) on both Brent and US Crude oil. 

I believe this should have resolved your issue and brought those minimums back in line. 

EDIT: it also looks like we have resolved the instance of UK clients having EUR contracts on their accounts. Let me know if this isn't the case.

Hi - let me just look into this for you. If any other clients are experiencing this please let me know by adding a comment below.

Put simply, a UK CFD clients shouldn't have access to Euro denominations. Whilst you can change this via the following drop down, there should be consistency between the minimums. We'll investigate this but as above - any additional accounts would be useful. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

    • 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.
