"Yes DL, it started to drop on Monday morning but did a quick reverse midday. No doubt its a short term push up as the smart money was focusing on the Fed minutes, due this week. I had not been looking to go long as the news of further rate increases this year would stump any attempt for 1400 but then if war does break out its going to put a fire under precious metals in the short term and could be a game changer for commodities in general."
Looks like it is a breakout attempt that just might succeed IMHO.

I think the fed minutes will be a side story today, the markets will only go one way in the next few hours/days now that trump has confirmed he will be firing missiles at syria and russia attempting to shoot them down
and I have only just realised myself. First up is CPI and its the usual range of 0.1 to 0.3 so we may see a slight relief rally but its hard to tell as we then have the Fed minutes. Now, bear in mind that there is a new Fed chairman and not much new info was released for the first meeting. Obviously, this will reveal the true intent and what to expect in the near term. Any signs that its business as usual may disappoint some.
Indeed, I'll probably stick with IG and if I have to pay the massive margins imposed by ESMA - so be it.....just means I'll be earning less but that's life!
every cloud has a silver lining Mak.....it may not look so good atm....simply because you(or i should say one) will be able to have less positions....and/or smaller positions.....because the trading pot does not stretch as far........
That, i think may well end up being a good thing....and as a result....will lead to more winning trades....
I had a demo account with Alpari, everything was fine, my demo trading going well and I was getting ready to go live with £10k real funds. Then they kept phoning me, pestering me to deposit the £10k. I smelt a rat and kept delaying by saying I needed more demo trading time when I didn't. Two weeks later they went bust!
It's very important that you know who you are giving your money to and that you will be able to get it back again. We take enough risk trading without sharks then depriving us of our winnings.
Hence I moved to IG for spreadbetting and I also have my ISAs with them too..
Claire: Kindly be advised that this is a very recent announcement so we will need to wait and see how things pan out. As we know, there will be no immediate changes applied. We assure that we will notify clients if there are any changes.
SPEND: Okay, so if and when ESMA apply their changes will IC need to conform with ESMA?

Still no crossover for the PStoch, last night it stood at -2 but now we have jumped above the 10sma (24037) its probably closed that gap.
High is 24235 and low is 23716. positives are PMACD (+23) is positive and PTSI (+2). If I see a positive figure for the PStoch tonight and the 10sma curved up plus should we close on a high today - there is potential for further gains this week.
My other worry is an overnight attack on Syria by the coalition - that could be the straw that backs the back.
There seems to be a number of articles today outlining China has buckled and is discussing with the USA a number of issues to reduce the US deficit with China. The sticking point apparently is the unfair support China is giving tech companies.
Lets see but take the DOW for example this mornings move up was quite volatile but its held above the 10sma. We probably should expect another try for the downside where then its worth a punt heading into earnings.
As TF said its worth watching price action for further clues.
Once u send the bank statements it will all be good and then you can withdraw straight into your bank. You should also send them a statement from your bank shpwing all debit card deposists then asknthem to marrying it all up
To clarify, deposits made by 2 UK debit cards and santander credit card. ii (city index) told me withdraw same amount deposited from each card, then send in bank statements for main debit card to withdraw remaining funds (profit).
Santander is rejecting withdrawal as it comes back as a 'refund'
Going forward have removed all cards except 1 and have emailed bank statements
Never had this issue before, trading cfd's almost 9 years.
Has anyone had problems withdrawing funds from ii CFD? I have been making regular deposits using 3 debit cards. ii have told me i cant withdraw back more then I deposited. Been going round in circles for almost two weeks! How do I withdraw my freaking profits?
These are the new FCA rules with any and all providers,.... money laundering rules.
When you deposit from a card you must withdraw to that card or cards the monies originally deposited.
If you want to withdraw funds to another account that is not the account or card of origin you can't until you have satisfied all the funding from origin criteria.
We kow a way around this but we cannot say on this board.
