ASX Index


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.

    • Hi   I had 2 long positions that were opened. I did not put any order to close them ie I was just leaving them opened without stop loss any the profit target . But suddenly they were closed this morning? Why?
    • Yes - there was a consolidation action of 1 for 1500 of these securities : https://www.sharesmagazine.co.uk/news/market/LSE20210504170819_3963598/GraniteShares-3STS-Reverse-split-Consolidation I've been on chat and on the phone to IG - they've done the consolidation, but still not updated the correct prices, which should of course also rise by ~1,500 on a ceteris paribus basis (all things the same). At the time of writing this, TSLA has dropped a further 2.4% today, so these securities ought to have risen ~ 7.2% (3x short TSLA) on the day.  The IG person I spoke with this evening promised me he would check with the relevant team and revert. My call was very late in the day (after 6pm) so I trust that they will have this resolved in the morning. If not, I do suggest calling again. 
    • Hey all,  Unlike some other brokers IG do not trade against clients and don't benefit when our clients lose. We hedge the same way as the majority of our clients (so if 60% were long and 40% were short we would hedge those 20% long that aren't covered).  We have no benefit when traders lose. We make money from spread and commission so if anything we want out traders to win so they will continue trading with us.  Unfortunately I can't be account specific and if you believe something is wrong on your account please reach out to us as I can't assist with this.  If you have any questions on this please let me know by quoting my response.  All the best,  Charlotte
