Hi, IG opens their platinum and palladium market same as the indices so opens at 11pm Sunday and closes 10pm Friday though I think both are currently 'close trades only' with Plat being 95% long and Pall being 100% short.

Would you be able to expand on what 'Closing only: Market unavailable to open' means?  How do you trade Palladium on the IG platform?

The 'closing only' notice in this case is likely due to the extremely unbalanced short/long positions and IG have reached their max risk tolerance for the market and will not take on new positions until some held have been closed, this might take minutes or days. I've not looked recently to see if the closed only is still in place.

    • For me your stop is large, I use close to the minimum for the market. But I think same applies. I think basically I like tight stops because you can't lose too much but when you win hopefully you win big relative to that. I've been using a 4:1 reward/risk ratio for example.  When I started out I thought the likelihood of pulling this off given how close the stop was to entry was unlikely but actually it does happen fairly often. The issue I have is that I average a win every 4 trades so essentially make nothing in the end but that's just my mean, I have a massive standard deviation that I need to get way down i.e. increase win rate if possible before this is useful. So for me I think I need better timing signals to enter and I enter too readily without really using indicators to help me. To be honest though what I've found which might be obvious to most is that if the market trends for a period of time it's much easier to make money. When it isn't it's very difficult, the problem is you often don't know when it's not trending to a large enough degree until you're in it and then you need to know to take some time and return later. Like sailing with a strong wind and then all of a sudden it's doldrums.
