    Potential 'Long' Gold Trade

    @Caseynotes, From a fundamental perspective there will be supply/demand implications. So output from SA is declining. Add uneconomic uncertainty and then price action / trends and you have a 'perfect cocktail / storm' for an aggressive trend and price behaviour upwards. I accept it does not always play out like this due to speculation, contrarian moves and aggressive short selling creating intense volatility but the potential is there for a major move upwards in Gold.

    Potential 'Long' Gold Trade

    US Global Investors @USFunds 12h South African gold output fell the most in six years, with production declining 31% from a year earlier. For many decades the nation was the world’s top #miner by a wide margin. Get our weekly recap of the #gold market tomorrow afternoon: ow.ly/UpaX30nMJr2

    Hi @scorpione, have a look at this IG educational page, https://www.ig.com/uk/options-trading and see follow on pages (see pic).

    Well there’s your answer. Seems odd and doubt were getting the full picture regarding this...
  16. Hi @Marte, IG specialise in brokerage rather than analytics though they do have company info and analysis and it does dig deeper if you have an account and are logged in. For pure company background information you are probably better off with an exchange web site such as the LSE or a specialist analytical site such as https://uk.tradingview.com/symbols/LSE-BARC/ for example.

    @PandaFace While respecting the privacy of the kind staff member who helped me this is the reason: "this is a business decision by the dealing desk who determine these things. I cannot expand on the reasons why we have come to this decision. We reserve the right to be able to restrict size as part of the terms and conditions you agreed when opening the account." A little odd. A mega company like IG worried about my three trades. Wow. I feel special. Yet I am going to complain and fight it. It doesn't seem right hey. Now you know how they will treat you. Be careful …. Jess.

    Bitcoin - Price Behaviour

    It seems Bitcoin is going to go for that psychological $4000 mark which it has failed to break through on the past couple of occasions. The fact that Bitcoin has not dropped and is trying again makes me wonder whether it may do so once the US markets open or overnight and possibly during the weekend. When I used to trade Bitcoin a couple of years ago the amount of big moves that came during the weekend was staggering. It got to a stage where I had to leave a long position open on Friday 10:00 pm to reap the rewards on Sunday night when the market re-opened. The trading times have changed since then but a I noticed quite a few very big moves occurring during the weekend. I do not advise traders to leave positions open overnight or take on such large risk but that is what I had to do as otherwise I was missing all the big weekend moves. Of course it went wrong on a couple of occasions so it was a very high risk play and 'gapping' was a serious issue but I no longer trade Bitcoin in that way anymore.

    Smart Money - Precious Metals

    Palladium is performing strongly on the upside and has been since August and September 2018. August 2018 was also when the Gold upward journey began. It is all about identifying these breakouts and assessing how strong these trends are by monitoring the price action.

    US 500 - Potential Shorting Opportunity

    The longer the US-China trade talks continue and the longer the matter is unclear and lingers on, the major US markets will not begin a major sell off. This will only happen once the US-China trade deal is confirmed. Up until then there will be plenty of buying, speculation and anticipation driving up US indices at at the very least sideways. The major shorting opportunity that some of us here on IG have been waiting for can only begin once the positive news is out of the way. Still no trend reversal or confirmation via price action to initiate a 'short' trade from a trend following perspective.

    selling one share

    Given time of day you posted I assumeit was because the market was closed... either try when the market is open, or even better maybe call in and see if there is an option to get a commission free trade seeing as this seems like a minor annoyance and unlikely issue. Would assume you set a limit order to sell (for example when you have 10 shares) but the price only came down to your level and had liquidity at that point for 9. Or failing that user error and you only typed in 9. either way worth an ask as could save yourself a few bucks.

    Potential 'Long' Gold Trade

    @OceansJess, In terms of trading Gold you may wish to start off by just monitoring the price action of Gold. Just live and breathe the price behaviour of Gold so that you are fully in tune with it. Identify what happens on days it goes down and what drives it to go up. Then try and look at how you would enter and exit such a trade. What would be the better entry points? Look at oscillators and see if you can use them to try and execute better entry points. Also at the same time try and understand the fundamentals for Gold. Understand the supply and demand of the hard metal and the production and mining of Gold. Research Gold's historical performance and establish how it has reacted in the past. This by no means is a guarantee that it will behave the same going forwards but you get a more rounded knowledge on the asset to help you make an informed decision on whether to trade it, invest in it or neither.
  24. The AUD continues to trade lower following the Chinese ban of Australian coal to its Dalian port. The ASX has benefited for the weaker exchange rate as it is trading at its highest level since October. Trump yesterday tweeted about not inhibiting technology from coming to the US with specific references to 5G networks implemented by the Chinese firm Huawei. This suggests a softer stance towards the Chinese firm which recently saw governments stating they would no longer allow the company to be involved with their infrastructure upgrades. Brexit woes have continued as more conservative members have warned they may rebel against the party in order to stop a no-deal Brexit. Amendments for Wednesday the 27th include a vote on preventing a no-deal Brexit and a vote to delay the deadline at the end of March.

The search engine Baidu gained over 4% yesterday as they beat earnings estimates by 18c per share Asian overnight: A mixed affair in Asia saw Chinese and Australian gains despite losses throughout Japan and Hong Kong. The US-China trade war remains the hot topic, with Donald Trump now scheduled to meet with the top Chinese negotiator, Liu He. Fears over the rejection of Australian coal in China has not been allayed, with coal miners understandably losing ground over the course of the session. UK, US and Europe: Looking ahead, the focus remains on the eurozone, with the and final CPI and German Ifo business climate figures expected to bring euro volatility. Meanwhile, the afternoon sees Canadian retail sales followed by appearances from a host of Fed members. Crude traders will be keen to watch for the Baker Hughes rig count figure too South Africa: After a soft close for US markets overnight, Index futures out of the region are starting to rebound this morning as are Chinese equity markets. US China trade talks continue today, while the UK is expected to ask the EU for an extension on the Brexit deadline. It is an otherwise light calendar, in terms of scheduled economic data. The dollar has softened slightly to aid gains in commodity prices. The rand has managed to claw back further strength and trade back below the R14/$ mark. Tencent Holdings is down 0.6% in Asia, suggestive of a similar start for major holding company Naspers. BHP Group is 0.4% lower in Australia suggestive of a flat to lower start for local miners.

    Nice example of why Support and Resistance is the King of indicators. Below is my Dow chart from December 4th where 26069.6 made it's first appearance as a struggling young H4 resistance level, over time he worked his way up through the ranks to become the Weekly resistance level. That hard work and diligence has paid off as yesterday he received the recognition so rightly deserved when he was tagged and saluted to the tick. Brings a tear to the eye.

    @zala I found that too. It seems the demo doesn't seem to show the digital 100's. But they come up on the new platform live account. Seems like the dealing desk can just do what they like. I am going to be restricted forever. Three trades and I am put on 0.63 contracts. What's the point of staying as a client. There is no way to challenge it and no explanation is given - or has to be given apparently. Nice. Thanks for the short time on the forum peoples. You have been most kind and helpful. Cheers Jess.
