Now that we're all being treated like children who can't be trusted to make our own decisions. . . . .


Recommended Posts

. . . . . .does anyone know if there's any way get around the imminent ban on trading crypto assets?

I've been quite succesfully using the Crypto 10 index as I was reluctant to pile everything into a single cryptocurrency that may or may not see widespread adoption. Does anyone know if there's anyway for a UK resident now to trade these assets other than buying them directly? (I'm not eligible for "professional" status).

 


 

Oh and if anyone from the FCA ever reads this - reign in your egos and stop treating adults like children. All you ever do is make my life more difficult.

The Crypto 10 index shows a spread range between 30 to 40 points plus a margin factor of 50%!!

Are you not better trading another index? 

I hardly see the point of trading that crypto index when there are much cheaper options available. 

What makes that crypto index that interesting?

Possibly. I can't see the future. But I've had good results with that index recently, and I think it's a technology with no where to go but up over the long term.

 

I agree the margin being asked is eye-watering, but I'll take that over not being allowed to trade it at all.

I don't really understand the all out ban. Why not just regulate more. For example force people to start on demo. They have to prove profitability over a set period of time on that. If they do that they can open a live account but can only deposit a small amount e.g £5k if they make money over a period of time lift restrictions and let them do what they want. If they go to zero take them back to demo or stop them completely on that particular platform. A ban just seems like a lazy option as it costs to build a structure like this and manage it.

    • IG's "Trade of the Week" video (26-Apr) suggested going LONG on GBPCAD. After I'd put on a small position I read your post on CAD strength. I wished I'd seen your post first  I was stopped out within a few days.
    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........
