ASX Index


Zero

Recommended Posts

Sorry for not posting here yesterday on close.  Lost my internet again in the morning, and finally got it back on today - pathetic hey.  It has cost me a bad loss today (smart-phone day trading is not possible - tough lesson to learn) which will take months to make back. 

Not to mention the missed opps. over the week.

 

I also found out that IG's restrictions on me aren't as what I was led to believe, (they're worse) and are making me reconsider my time here.  I only found out accidently (ie. due to being let down by IG), which could have cost me another bad loss. 

 

I am looking around anyway.  Don't let the ASX thread die...

Hi Zero,

I have been looking for someone else who trades the ASX200. I stumbled on your thread this morning. I am not much good at blogging but I have been trading Futures and Forex for years. Now my temperament is better suited to the first 2 hours of the ASX200 and FTSE where I basically scalp and don't hold long term. Have my charts set up for the Open now and will be ready for the FTSE at 5pm. If you feel there is a common interest , let me know. Regards. Jim

Hi  , sorry to say that  hasn't posted for a number of weeks now after he posted that he was having unspecified problems with IG changing some aspects of, and placing some restrictions on his account trading binaries. Looking back through the ASX thread it seems to me that some of his posts on the matter have disappeared (except the one where he praised IGs efforts in trying to resolve the matter, hmm). Sorry can't help further, hopefully someone else will pick up the thread.

Shout out to ZERO!

 

Where are you mate?

 

The ASX like the other Indexes look like they want to go higher.

 

A daily reversal to the upside on Tuesday is a strong indicator imo.

 

Must be a few shorts out there given it's May.

 

Might see the market melt up from here and cause some pain to those shorts.

 

Just saying.

 

Cheers,

 

JB.

It has certainly been risk on since the daily reversal to the upside last week.

I've gone long GBPJPY today.

Will be interesting to see how the S&P500 deals with the previous top around 2110. Indications for now are higher.

 

Happy trading.

 

Cheers,

 

JB.

Hi Jim,

 

Me Too, I only trade the ASX & FTSE opening, usually the first two hours. Sometimes I dabble on the HSI if the conditions is right. I mainly use statistics to back my trading. PM me if you want to share any trade idea. Currently I'm looking for someone to develop something to automate this.

ASX200 the thing i trade the most  . Lets see if we can fire this thread back up  .  My volatility model is mildly bullish but with no conviction . Historically  (seasonally) first 15 ish days in march are flat to down  so my MO will be to short pops with a little more vigour than BTFD  . Follow the bias filter and trade hardest with the short term trend . Respect downside  breaks with more conviction on fading upside breaks  .   We are at/near 12 month highs so top end of the range in the TF i trade , No surprise if Feb high isnt broken till last week march/early april   . With all datasets i tend to ignore the outliers  which Mar '20 qualifies

This was a very interesting thread back in the day, Zero was an out and out binaries option trader (still is, with another broker), run foul of IG's 'rules' and forced out, no joy with a complaint to ASIC. His contributions are sadly missed by many, esp Oz traders.

    • Hello @SillyMilly I think you are referring to purchasing crypto for holding, like people who buy gold or silver as a store of value, while @MongiIG and @ArvinIG are referring to the activity of "trading" since IG is a trading platform, i.e. for those who want to buy and sell assets as a mean to make a profit. In that sense they are right in pointing out that the FCA (the Financial Conduct Authority (UK)) which is the main governing body for the financial sector (I believe) has ruled against the activity of trading cryptocurrencies for non-professionals. I think perhaps due to the very risky nature of trading in crypto, which are prone to extreme volatility. Having said all that, you can purchase crypto through an exchange. I am not sure if there are any legal restrictions in the UK, but I doubt it. I suggest you do a Google search for "Crypto Exchanges UK". Good luck
    • Hi I would like to buy a few gold sovereign coins to keep for a couple of years or so then sell on later in the hope of beating hyper inflation I was told not to buy them online or mail order because the postage is very expencive and I was told to buy them in person I live in Manchester, UK. Surgestions please on where to look if considering buying. Buying somewhere that is safe so I know I am getting real gold and somewhere that dose not charge an extortion on broker fees? I was also told to avoid jewelers has there transaction fees where extortion   Thanks
