    Why kick anyone out? Why can't we just enjoy the spectacle of someone completely blowing an account? Besides, it would be educational for noobs.

    Haven't tried binaries for years, but whatever the strat it must be a worry that you're trading a market entirely created by the bookie, who can apparently reject any trade they don't like, either instantly or in retrospect if by some miracle they make a fat loss.

    IG Index

    Knowing exactly how much you stand to win or lose is an advantage, but in all other ways aren't you just completely at the mercy of the bookie?

    IG Index

    TBH, I've never understood the point of binaries from the punter's side of the fence. Isn't it effectively the same thing as an underlying index but with a larger spread?

    IG Index

    The thing I don't like about SB providers is the way that they still take any opportunity to grab extra pennies from punters by having T&Cs allowing them to move the goalposts, even though they would still make huge profits just by relying on the clients to lose money because the odds are...

    Great. They can move the goalposts at any time. No wonder Stuart Wheeler is so rich.

    Serves them right, unless you think SB's should have a T&C clause stipulating that they reserve the right to cancel any trades resulting in a client making a profit.

    The All New Not Scammed for £75k Thread

    It didn't when I first opened an account with them ten years ago and accidentally opened a position ten times the intended amount, even though it was obviously a mistake by referring to previous account history.

    The All New Not Scammed for £75k Thread

    It would be interesting to know if any client has ever had losses returned due to a T&C clause.

    I find that remark deeply offensive. Most of us are proud to be complete t**ts. R. Charnock (Mrs)

    Why would all the bucketshops share data, and what sort of data are you meaning? I think most SB-ers will probably try most of the providers eventually, to find one they like rather than being anything to do with pro or non-pro.

    If that's supposed to make us feel sorry for SBs, it didn't work.

    No, there's a definite aroma of rat and fish around here.

    Scammed for £70,000 by IG Index!!

    It just goes back to what's been said already. If someone opens an account and seems to take wild punts, the SB rub their hands with glee and let it pass, knowing that the odds are hugely in favour of the mug client blowing his/her account. But if by some chance the punter has a string of wins...

    It's impossible to say whether any trades over such a short time were lucky or not. Besides, traders of any level of expertise of 'professionalism' will have wins and losses. Possibly IG is suggesting that the IP address had previously been used by someone else?

    You only need to do the elbow test (no musical experience necessary).

    That'll be a good enough reason for T2W to delete the thread.
