Ever had one of those days when it was better to stay in bed? When everything one touches turns brown and squidgy? Oil is readjusting and having a moment of clarity and the price is falling, currently 7.7% off it's Monday Am high. Is this simply profit taking or is it Hedge Funds  simply cashing in their considerable chips and seeing what happens next? Result is market is quietly falling. This has woken a few to the excesses of market exuberance in other markets and prompted more cashing in. Naturally this morning (very early) I managed to make a double whammy of errors of judgement. Firstly I bought when I should of sold (self inflicted error due to mis-click), secondly I sold when I should of held (common mistake). Bye bye last weeks profit. Despite reading the market and  mostly understanding it, I still managed to conspire to self sabotage. Therefore, some days, it's better to stay in bed, side step the day, go for a walk, feed fish, relax. Anything but try and make more money. Just putting it out there.

    • I call it a wash and rinse - it happens often at swing lows and swing highs, as they are the obvious place for stops to be placed at, the "science" of the markets means that these places are often hit because of what the market HAS to do to move.    
    • No the share dealing account is subject to tax. You will need to make a seperate application for an ISA and it will appear.
    • Hello, my 2 pence worth, On markets like the FTSE it would be good to have an option to switch off the simulated candles, I.e only between 0800 and 1630 being displayed.  The trading out of hours is not for me and I find it quite tiresome having to trawl through the charts of simulated candles. Second pence worth, When IG tv launches it brings up a box over the deal ticket and has on numerous occasions caused me to miss the moment to place trade, Same when a trade is closed due to hitting limits or stop losses. I either have to manually  click on the X to close before I place a trade. Really really frustrating. Apart from this I am happy with IG and the service I have received to date. I am not on IG's payroll lol
