What's your favourite part of the trading experience?


Recommended Posts

Cheer up Dmedin, it could get worse.. You could be shorting the Dow. Or voting for Trump. As for revenge trading, simply give it a miss, over trading same. Losing money is a fact when trading, just as making it is. Suicidal dispression? Never. Desperation? Methinks not.  Believe in yourself, she'll be alright mate (as the kiwis say). 

Take a break and clear your mind. Walk or swim or just go somewhere conducive to relaxation. Give screens a miss, then come back, trust your instincts and rationale and knock some trades out of the park. Rage trading is bad for the body, soul and wallet. 

Don't forget to relax and take time for yourself.

You forgot to add a 6th option:

6) Looking for attention from other traders with sh*t posts

 

A very apt description of yourself, Mr 'I don't look at charts but I develop algorithms that ask questions of themselves because that is obviously far easier' :D

So have you been sitting on your 4rse all day letting your algo rake in the money while I've been sweating my guts off trying to trade and sharing most of them on the forum for other people to fade?  Then you come on here and answer one simple question about API keys and then tell me that I'm sh!t.  Well aren't you the big man who knows it all :D

I've been posting my history all week.  Go ahead and post your wonderful algo written in C# so we can all get rich. :D 

Not interested in any of your fancy-schmany 'advanced risk management' library or algorithm cr4p.  I know my limitations.  And if you're not interested in charts then feel free to f*k off.  :)

Post a spreadsheet with your trades from this week, let's see how you have lost money. With times, markets and sizes, let's see if that cry is based on anything worthy.

 

Who the f*k are you to sit there and issue me with orders?

F*k off mate.

And I said already, I am not interested in your pish.

I'm shy and don't speak like this in real life BTW.

Your personality is very well defined in many articles. There is one big reason behind Facebook's usual way of creating a user in an online forum. People speak very differently when they can't hide behind a username. If you had to use your real name you wouldn't insult like that. You have shown yourself in many posts over the years, don't worry, we know who you are.

To be fair to him - I went through a really bad period in the 2000's where everything I looked at turned out to be utter **** - my personality is that of precision, exactness etc and it took a lot of years to overcome this with markets being as they are and I did rather rudely challenge people claiming this and that - so I can see where he's coming from

That being said there's no excuse for some of his posts and comments

In your case I would call you a c*nt to your face.

Since you're Swedish.  :)

1) Because it works and more importantly 

2) Because it annoys the hell out of you

I get more satisfaction from #2 than I do from the money #1 creates

1) Losing money

2) Feeling of desperation

3) Revenge trading/overtrading

4) Crashing into suicidal depression

5) Staring down the barrel of the gun

For me it's No 2 :D 
In life you either need inspiration or desperation. As I don't have any inspiration in me, desperation it is :D
One day I will make it. Say that again. One day I will make it.
Until then, oh that desperation gives me chills every night

Also why is everyone so angry at dmedin? - Without him the forum would be empty and fun-less.

You should thank him for keeping it going after all. So thanks pal 🙏

actually more people would contribute if they felt they could express an opinion without some ignorant little troll jumping up and down insulting and flaming them at every opportunity.

The perpetual negativity in the face of any evidence to the contrary gets extremely tiresome and leads people to better trading forums where the moderators actually take an interest and stamp out blatant flaming.

I don't think so, Tom.

Still waiting to see some of your trades, BTW.

    • Hey @pravid17 I hope you're well.  In the leveraged trading industry there are brokers who don't hedge client's exposure and brokers (like ourselves) who do hedge client's exposure.  In a perfect world the exposure of short clients would net off the trades of long clients however this is not always the case. Our hedging model allows us to take an exposure in the underlying market for the remaining exposure which doesn't offset - This way we don't need to hedge every trade, worry about profits of our clients and results in lower costs for hedging in the underlying market (commissions, interest etc.). So say 60% of IG customer exposure in the ASX was long and 40% of exposure on the ASX was short. The 40% would net each other off but there's a remaining 20% of customers who need to be hedged to cover their positions. We go into the market and hedge this.  We make our money primarily through our spreads and overnight funding  with other fees making up a small proportion of our revenue. I would like to remind also that IG is regulated by several bodies globally, including top-tier regulators like the UK's FCA, Germany's BaFIN, Australia's ASIC - This should be quite reassuring from a dealing execution and transparency perspective.  I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other question 
    • A survey from Reviews.org, which featured 1000 Americans, found that as many as 1 in 4 US subscribers may quit the service in the next year.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 23 September 2022  There was an interesting breakdown, but the main reason was affordability. Only 18% said they would move to a cheaper competitor. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the numbers. Netflix subscription woes Netflix Inc (All Sessions) could be in for a rough time ahead over the next 12 months if a new survey is anything to go by, which was conducted in the US. Out of the 1,000 adults that took part in this survey undertaken by Reviews.org, around 25% of those that were covered said that they would be cancelling their Netflix subscription within the next 12 months. Now, it says with that 25% of US subscribers to Netflix considering leaving, not to join a competitor, but mostly because of pressures on household bills. This is how it is split: rising cost of subscriptions - 40% inflation - 20% a lack of content - 22% spending more time on the services of others - 18% So you can see, a minority said they were going to other services, such as those provided by Disney Plus or Amazon Prime. The cost of Netflix has risen dramatically this year as its basic plan increased by 11% in January and its other plans by 20% to 25%. Now these were the first price increases for three years, so that itself is relatively new for a lot of subscribers. Netflix share price Let's take a look at the Netflix share price. You can see on the far left hand side of this chart the COVID lows at $290.39. We saw a whacking great increase there of 141% to the top and the record high in Netflix shares back in November 2021. And that was when subscriptions were rising, people were paying more for their services, and it was all humming beautifully. And then all of a sudden people started questioning the numbers of streaming services they were undertaking with some deciding to withdraw from Netflix. All of a sudden the big drops started coming through with profit warnings and sales warnings. We've recently hit a new low of $162.50. Since then there has been a little bit of an increase. We're currently trading at $232.75, but we are down by a margin of 1.75% in today's session, which reflects this news that we could well see a relatively large drop in subscribers for Netflix in the US within the next 12 months.
    • Market data to trade the week of 26 September: Nasdaq; NXT From the economic calendar next week IG technical analyst, Axel Rudolph, picks up on a short trade on the Nasdaq around US inflation data. Meanwhile, despite another light week of corporate data, Axel picks out the chart of Next plc (NXT) as an interesting trade to think about.
