Hello

I am new to trading and this community.

I just registered with IG and downloaded the MT4 platform.

I want to trade in Dow Jones and German Dax but I cannot find German Dax in the Market Watch under Indices.

How to I add this Index?

Kind regards

Hi You probably figured it out by now but if not DAX is called GER30 on MT4.

It would be interesting to know how many bad first posts are stopped by the moderators compared to the number  of posts that are not seen because by the time they are checked and ok'd they are re-inserted way back in the forum order. They only started doing the checks because 1 company kept on signing on and placing ads on the forum. Seems a shame that many first posts are not seen and so not replied to.

    • 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.
