I don't suppose they want to be taken seriously as finaincal bookies! maybe someone has given them a bloody nose and they took there ball away! Its a shame because I was making some money there - how was anyone else doing? To be fair I'm ont so keen on fixed odds anyway - binaries are my bag.

 Apr 19, 2007, 8:31pm #3 Joined Apr 2007 try trading out of a fixed odds position with 5 secs until the market closes. If you don't have to use a calculator i'll eat your hat. binaries are the way forward.
 Apr 19, 2007, 8:42pm #4 Joined Dec 2006 I do not understand. Are you maintaining that there is a difference between the two products in terms of risk exposure or simply stating that you prefer the price quote method to be in binary format rather than fixed odds? Please elucidate. Thanks - NQR __________________ Ex nihilo, nihil fit.

Clearly there is no underlying difference, buy if one is in profit it take a bit of calculating to work out the stake to lay if off (ie. close it with a reverse bet), since the stake is not p/p but your £ risk.

I've been trading on this too. I called their customer services department and asked where the Gold and Silver markets have gone. Apparently there is a problem with the exchange on which these products trade (Chicago Board of Trade) and they should be back up as soon as the exchange fixes the problem at their end.
