I didn't expect such a Sudden drop today but it was a welcome opportunity to buy a few more.

I thought that IG had said they we not making a big thing of crypto as was all the small punters playing it who can go lose their 500 quid stake with plus 500 , my experience of people I have met who are trading it is they were either working on it for years and have made millions or they have been suckered into in the last few months and have less than a single bitcoin and expectations to make a fortune....the spreads seem huge so I am sure Plus 500 and ig will be making healthy profits .

Raffles - unlongable means they already have an outsized position and do not want to add more risk. A good indicator of the overweight long is that they pay an annualised 17.5% for short positions held overnight. As much as anything shorting cryptos is a potential income play. On the flip side the interest rate for holding long positions is a lot higher. (I can't remember exactly, I'm not interested in that direction, 25%?)

They hold 20% of all open contracts on CME.Unlongable for the likes of you and me but think they let some big players into these things firstI've been very happy to short crypto anyway :)

Eh ? My experience has been that for most of the past year cryptocurrencies have been "unlongable" through IG Index so I struggle to see they ever were a big source of business.

Yep agree IG are very big in crypto and one of the easiest places to take a position - well done to them. It was interesting their trading platform took a long time to come up Tuesday morning probably trying to sort out all the liquidations and margin calls.Agree they profit from volatility but not black swans (think back to CHF EUR which went badly wrong). Maybe this week wasn't quite black Swan enough to impact themESMA is the next watch out. Share price nearly back to the level before this was announced now

And then lost it all! From the chart you can see in 2011 it went from about 19 to about 6, and in the few months from Aug 2015 to Jan 2016 it also lost 3/4 of its value. The big gains only came from after that, and even more so from mid 2016. So in the first 5 years the gain was 50%, i.e. 11 to 16.

The XIV ETN began trading at the beginning of December 2010 at approximately $11.04 per share. Between December 3rd, 2010 and January 12th, 2018 the price of XIV had risen by $133.71 to $144.75. This represents a 1,211% gain in eight years. Essentially an investor multiplied their money by 11x in that time frame

privileged - I would be a bit surprised if anyone used IG for an XIV short volatility strategy. IG themselves might take a hit, but I bet they get it back from people going long vol at the top. In general the only people that can make consistent profits from long or short vol are the service providers who collect the contract decay come what may. Anyway, I imagine the spreadbet providers are making hay at the moment with cryptos and a sharp turn in the equity markets. I bet plenty have been caught on the wrong side of the dollar in the last month too.

I doubt there is a lot of forced liquidation, we are still not that far from all time highs in most markets and vix related product will be heavily margined and a tiny tiny fraction of business, in general volatility which has been lacking recently will be very good for business.

Return to lots of volatility must be making plenty of profit for IG this quarter..

Pete re crypto trading volume - probably but might be worth checking out PLUS IG reported 18k customer first trades in 1H Jun- Nov 17 In the similar period July - Dec 17 PLUS added 192k new customers (depositing) Sequentially for 2017 PLUSs quarterly new customers were 2016 22-29k/quarter Q1 17 22k Q2 17 32k Q3 17 42k Q4 17 150k! Cryptomania Edit - Paul - posts crossed - agree PLUS/IG different models re customers

No - they said Crypto only attracted low value customers who could not pass their on boarding requirements so they are not going for new Crypto clients rather aiming for high value "professional" clients.

Thanks toyin, I'll take a look at that next time I want some sport, good luck. Meanwhile back with nose to the whatever, I've repurchased those I sold this morning, not made a fortune but it'll pay for an evening out :)

Excellent report. I have just added on the pull back to yesterday's price. Their move away from partners reduces risk and cost. Interim dividend up 2.8%. Regulation is overhanging the share price of course, but by too much in my opinion. Whether I am overly optimistic will become apparent over the course of time!

gbh2 If you open a ticket and tick the "force open" box it will run a long against a short and vice versa. All the best
