wildshot: Too true muzmanoz. Not sure if Energeticbacker is the same person behind the InvestorsChampion user name who used to constantly spam these ADVFN boards promoting their website which I'm not inclined to use. I lost even my faintest risk of an interest in their analysis when they posted here a few months ago that they were surprised IG held their dividend at the same level as before. As I pointed out this had already been signalled in previous company announcements. Just goes to show how "in-depth" analysis Investors Champion must perform. I'm inclined to block Energeticbacker from my feeds.
muzmanoz: Not a great sell for investors champion when you can't post about the right company.
garycook: Hargreaves Lansdown.One of the best,but you have to pay for quality,Dividend paid on payment day,and around 12 Noon Interactive Investor even better the dividend is credited to your account before the market opens on payment day.DYOR
jimbals: Spitting B -I agree with you as I have been involved with IG since it started. I have bought some through Spreadex as I cannot buy through IG being an investor with them. I have no spread bet shares as I am very apprendsive re the Stockmarket - my only position is Gold, which is doing well.
jimbals: Market volatively can be of benefit to IG- you can either go long or short on any share but there are risks involved. Any investor who is or has been,long on airlines,cruise lines, retailing, etc and not hedged could be faceing large losses.I wonder if IG has any major bad debts because of this extreme volatively occuring now
american idiot: Taken from Plus500 Q1 trade update today Group revenue for the three months ended 31 March 2019 was $53.9 million (Q4 2018: $154.8 million) Average revenue per user Q4 2018 $1,523 Q1 2019 $550 As mentioned in my previous post here, the effects of ESMA are probably far more reaching than first thought. Firstly, CFD + Spreadbet providers will have lost bucketloads of customers as a result of increased margin requirements within ESMA. Some customers will have just walked away completely. Secondly, those customers left will no doubt continue to struggle with higher margin requirements, less liquidity in the market as a result of less participants, less volumes trading which for me resulted in a commission rate increase which then compounds the struggles further and there you have it. ARPU gets hammered as customers struggle. (The case with me) I remember 15 years ago there were a fair few more CFD providers than there are now. Markets were bouyant and wannabee traders / investors wishing to have a crack at CFD trading were aplenty. This is definately no longer the case in my opinion nowadays. The likes of E*Trade were a big gun back in the day and now in the UK are long gone. I suspect some of the smaller peers to IG will disappear at some point leaving only the strongest left. IG are very much the best in the business at what they do and longer term I've no doubt they will benefit from this.
american idiot: Without a doubt IG are the best in the business at what they do. The service I receive from my account manager is absolutely excellent. I am a premium client. I've been with IG for 15 years with a CFD account.(as well as a spreadbet & ISA account) In the height of my speculating I was easily turning over £10m volume per month. Now, I am lucky if I can buy / sell more than 1 position per day. I have an Aussie IG account (as well as my UK account) and plenty of cash on account / margin cover so my problems are nothing to do with ESMA. The problems for me are lack of volumes. Increments of 0.02p / 0.05p means volume is ok but its all around the same kind of price meaning making a worthwhile profit is extremely difficult. There also seems to be a lot LESS actual humans trading nowadays with far more algo bots spread all over Level 2 screens than there was a decade ago. As a result of lack of opportunities, my volumes fall, IG increase their commission rate for me which just compounds the problem which results in my trading grinding to a virtual halt and me looking to do something completely different with my savings. I think the likes of IG under-estimate the effects of ESMA going forward. If my current volume declines are anything like other IG retail investors then IG will warn on revenue / profits just like CMC and PLUS have recently. Instead of IG going down the mature stockbroking road they should think again of offering sports betting to clients. This industry has grown rapidly over the past decade and would fit in very well with their spreadbet business. hTTp://uk-spread-betting.co.uk/ig-index.html#
jimbo123elf: Can't access the webscast on their investor website. Couldn't access it live yesterday, and can't access the recorded version today. Is it just me? I have registered my email. Still won't let me in.
american idiot: Woodhawk, Good enough or stupid enough ? I would imagine the majority of small investor would fail on point 2 of IG's criteria. Investment portfolio: You are required to have a ‘financial instrument portfolio’ (defined as cash deposits and financial instruments) of €500,000 or more. Acceptable instruments include cash, stock portfolios, stocks and shares ISAs, trading accounts, mutual funds, and SIPPs. Managed company pensions, non-tradeable assets, property, luxury cars, or physical gold are not acceptable. ................ I have far more than 500k Euro in overall assets but unfortunately I am not stupid enough to have that amount in cash deposits or financial instruments. I have my assets tied up in property so I get some kind of return on investment. This of course doesn't count.
edmondj: zangdook, It may be the underlying IT platform a variety of brokers use, I forget the name but it was cited e.g. in association with dividend/cash transfer delays at the tanfastic Barclays 'Smart Investor'. I quite despair at the state of modern online broking compared with a decade or so ago.
