Zut alors Peregrin Took, I could save myself a lot of money ūüėģ

Quote

From a psychological perspective it was¬†Freud¬†who made the first serious contribution to the psychology of gambling by claiming that gambling was a repetitious substitute for¬†masturbation. He argued there were many parallels between the two behaviours including the importance of ‚Äėplay‚Äô, the exciting and frantic activity of the hands, the irresistibility of the urge, the intoxicating pleasure, the repeated resolutions to stop the activity, and the enormous feelings of¬†guilt¬†once the activity was completed.¬†

She started out as a trader and ended up getting a proper job as a career coach / psychoanalyst lol.

Notice that EVERYONE abandons trading as soon as they can possibly find something better.

Towards the end she talks about a Manhattan psychoanalytical outfit 'curing' schizophrenia by talking.  That is not a mainstream view ... she is quite possibly a chancer and a quack.  But a well-paid one no doubt.

I lost my nerve today.  If I had kept my stops where they were and let the trades run I would have made money.  (Except on the Nasdaq, which reversed sharply, but that has turned into a shorting opportunity on the day - so probably will get the money back.)

Here we go, I've got enough mojo back to try again next week :)

Helping people to cope with schizophrenia with talking therapy yes, CURING it I don't think so.

You only in your second year? Lucky you

Call me when you're beyond year 3 and still not making bucks - then we're talking :D 

 

You think I should try another year and continue to be a cash cow for the winning 5%? :)

a new IG reversed account 

When the trader click on buy IG sell and when the trader click on sell IG buy

Like this, trader click on buy and set a stop but IG change to order to sell short with a take profit at the same place as the traders stop

IG lives off desperate, gullible, greedy punters like me.  There's a well-known secret in the financial services industry, and it is this: the only people who consistently make money are the brokers, advisers and other Shylocks and middle-men who take home enormous commissions, fees and salaries :)

The stock market is the cancer of international financial capitalism that is bringing the world to its knees and putting us all into debt slavery.

    • Thank you for the reply. This may not be the case, the market clearly says it is closed when I try to place a trade. Effectively meaning I am unable to trade outside of the hours specified!
    • Apple‚Äôs recent stock weakness marks a divergence with other members of the Magnificent 7 and the broader Nasdaq 100. Source: Bloomberg ¬† Indices¬†Shares¬†Apple Inc.¬†Artificial intelligence¬†Price¬†iPhone Written by:¬†Chris Beauchamp¬†|¬†Chief Market Analyst,¬†London ¬† Publication date:¬†Friday 01 March 2024 13:26 AI Efforts in Question Apple's¬†stock fell below $180 on Thursday for the first time since early-November, underperforming the broader market. While the¬†S&P 500¬†and tech-heavy¬†Nasdaq¬†indices posted solid gains, Apple¬†shares¬†slipped around 1%. Source: Google Finance The decline comes as doubts loom about Apple's artificial intelligence (AI) initiatives. Rivals like¬†Microsoft¬†are delivering strong earnings growth tied to burgeoning AI technology. This was highlighted by Tuesday's report that Apple is discontinuing its decade-long electric vehicle project. Back in 2017, Apple CEO Tim Cook called the autonomous car endeavour the "mother of all AI projects." Stock Underperforms Broader Market So far in 2024, Apple shares have dropped 3%, trailing the S&P 500's 7% gain and the Nasdaq's 9% climb. Despite its long-term market-beating returns, Apple has recently lagged the S&P 500 on 6-month, 1-year, and 2-year timeframes, according to FactSet data. After spending most of 2021 to 2023 as the world's most valuable public company by market capitalization, Apple surrendered that crown to Microsoft in January. Microsoft's sales and profit growth have far outpaced Apple's, which posted negative growth in its 2022 fiscal year ending last September. AI Investment Hints but Details Lacking At Wednesday's shareholder meeting, Cook suggested Apple is "investing significantly" in generative AI. He said more specifics will be announced later this year. UBS analyst David Vogt predicts Apple's first major AI launch will come in June at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. iPhone Sales Weakness Looms In addition to AI uncertainties, expectations for weak iPhone sales growth continue to weigh on Apple. iPhones accounted for 58% of Apple's total revenue last quarter. Some See Positives in Car Project Halt Some analysts see a silver lining in the halt of Apple's electric car plans. It enables the company to refocus AI talent on nearer-term products with greater market potential. To Morgan Stanley, it also shows Apple's "cost discipline." Apple analyst rating LSEG (formerly known as Refinitiv) data shows a consensus analyst rating of ‚Äėbuy‚Äô for Apple with 10 strong buy, 17 buy, 13 hold and 2 sell ‚Äď and a mean of estimates suggesting a long-term price target of $201.41 for the share, roughly 16% higher than the current price (as of 1 March 2024). Source: LSEG Technical outlook on the Apple share price The Apple¬†share price¬†continues to precariously weigh on its $180.30 to $179.25 support zone which consists of the January-to-February lows. A fall through and daily chart close below this area looks increasingly likely and would lead to levels being reached which were last traded in early-November with the 3 November low at $176.65 representing the first downside target. Apple Daily Candlestick Chart Source: TradingView Further down sits the $174.49 August low below which key support can be spotted between the September and October lows at $167.62 to $165.67. Were the $180.30 to $179.25 support zone to hold, though, a rise and daily chart close above last week‚Äôs high at $185.04 would need to occur, for a recovery off the support area to gain traction. In this scenario the Apple share price would trade back above its 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at $183.90 and target the 55-day SMA at $188.50. This will continue to favour a fall through support at $179.25 to take place as long as the Apple share price continues to trade below last week‚Äôs high at $185.04. ¬† ¬† This information has been prepared by IG, a trading name of IG Markets Limited.
