Autochartist Signals


Recommended Posts

Beware

I've already raised this with my premium client manager a few weeks ago, but I thought it would be worth flagging up an issue that I've seen over the last couple, here.

I'm an experienced and profitable trader, so I haven't been too badly hurt, but I've noticed that Autochartist signals, particularly on EURUSD are all over the place for the last month or so. This morning they issued both a Long and Short signals simultaneously, less than two hours after IG's European Session email was sent, which gave an Autochartist Long signal on this pair. As far as I can see, market conditions hadn't changed to justify a short signal. This is now a fairly regular occurrence. At other times, their signals offer a Risk/Reward ratio that are so poor that not sane trader should take the trade.

Please be careful when looking at these signals, folks. It could get very expensive.

yes, always had to keep an eye on the risk reward as the computer that generates the signals doesn't seem to care, has been that way for years.

Computer generated signals generally kind of stupid and needs a "brain filter" to be profitable

The signals Autochartist produce should be used as a scanner to alert and then its time to take a close look and then decide if its something interesting 

and also look for emerging signals

as an example i saw this inverse head and shoulder on USDJPY 240 min emerging but i dont trade forex so i did miss that one

TBH they just throw any old sh!t at you, in the hopes of getting you to trade.  I'd do the same if it were me.  90% of all these retail mugs are going to lose their shirts anyway.

    • Charlotte, we keep seeing the message that's it's small caps that have been withdrawn. It isn't.  For example, Hikma has a market cap of £5.2bn and is in the FTSE100. How do we know which other companies IG might decide to do the same to? We are also told that it's due to exceptional client demand. In that case, limit new opening positions (buy and sell). Why should we long-term clients suffer due to this?
    • Hey,  I completely understand your frustration and I will pass it onto our senior team as well as the exposure desk.  The decisions has been made but I'm so sorry for how it's impacting your trading. With exceptional client demand in the equity space, we have reviewed our 12000 leveraged markets and decided to withdraw less than 1000 small cap equities, after a review of associated returns on these markets. We will continue to support these markets for Share Dealing, where that product is available. Sorry again for this inconvenience.  All the best 
    • Hey @SunnyD, Thanks for your post,  If you buy a future contract it usually has a slightly larger spread however you're not  subject to overnight funding like you are for cash price/ DFB.  You will not be charged 20 pts per night it's just the initial 20 points spread when you open the position. If you leave it there (and have enough on your account to cover your margin) there aren't any other fees.  Just as a heads up the April contract actually expires in March. You can find details on the platform in the get info section:  All the best
