Trade Idea of the Month Badge


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,


I would really like to encourage people to share their trading Ideas here in the Community.

No one gets them all right. 

The ECB killed off a lot of great trades last week so even when you're right you can be wrong.

It's the reasoning behind the trades that we can all benefit from if people are willing to share.


Come on people lets make this space the best we can.

I totally agree - would give a double thumbs up or double like if I could.  I was almost going to start a topic today wondering/asking why no one posts actual trades.


I'd be surprised if someone has such a fine edge to their trading system that sharing trades would erase their profits, so it must be something else.  Maybe most people don't actually trade?

Hey  & ,


I think this would be a great way to get members to share trades ideas and actual trades. How would you envision the prize being awarded - single best trade idea or maybe cumulative trade suggestions over the month? Whoever received the most likes on their trade idea/ideas would win?

Another idea to perhaps add to the original - maybe there could be a joint community demo account where people can post trades?

Could be anonymous, or just with a comment here on the forum "I posted xxxxx trade". 

The login etc. could be given to community members so it is not hijacked ? 

Market opening so will think about this topic more during the day.

Hey Dan,


I would do it as a single trade.

I don't want to discourage people from contributing further trades if the 1st one doesn't work out.

Likewise I would not want excessive amounts of trades in the hope one is right.

A balance needs to be found.


A bit of thought needs to be put in to this.


The objective though is to have as many as possible contributing.


I would also like IG analysts to be involved. The great call on the nf payrolls last Friday is a case in point.

The irony? of this thread is that the people discussing it are most likely those who will participate and already do participate.  So ?


It would be interesting - perhaps not the best but interesting - to see if it was to be a majority decision for the best trade based on the number of likes.   Technically you'd go for dollar value - but then you'd have to stipulate how many contracts traded.  That could be good as it could indicate how certain the trade is (for the "suggestor"). 


A few things too - like is a good trade one that is over in 5mins - gives you the rest of the day off?  Or frees up margin for more trades.  Or is the best one a low volatility one that can be set and forgotten?


Hmm!  But perhaps that can all come out in the wash if it is just based on likes?

Hi all,


I think that as  said, we should base this off the single best trade over the month, but as to how we quantify this, and what rules apply, that could be another discussion in itself! However, I do think we need to get this right first time for it to work, and greatly appreciate your input already.


My thought is to run with the trade idea that gets the most likes, as it is often difficult to compare the success of trades across the different types of markets we offer.


All thoughts welcome...

    • The #meme hype surrounding #Solana may have slowed down with the emergence of the Ton network, but it seems that the enthusiasm for Solana is not fading away entirely. While new networks like Ton are gaining attention, Solana has previously generated significant interest and wealth for investors. However, there are concerns about scammers exploiting the Solana network with various honeypot and rugpull schemes, leading some traders to explore other chains like Base and Ton. Despite the rise of Ton blockchain, a new Solana meme project associated with Pepe the Frog has started to gain traction. One such project, LandWolf, has already amassed over 5,000 active Telegram members and 5,000 Twitter followers, indicating early interest and community engagement. The project aims to unite Pepe fans with the broader crypto community, offering a unique value proposition. LandWolf's ability to secure listings on top-tier exchanges like Bitget showcases the developer's influence and the project's potential. Some enthusiasts have already dubbed $WOLF as the biggest meme coin on Solana, highlighting the ongoing interest and excitement within the Solana ecosystem.
    • Meme coins are cryptocurrencies inspired by internet jokes, like Dogecoin. They're inherently risky due to their extreme price swings. While some meme coins remain purely for fun, others are trying to develop actual uses in gaming or finance. These high-risk, high-reward investments often attract "degenerates" (or "degens") who chase quick profits by jumping into unproven projects without much research.   The potential for massive returns with meme coins can't be ignored, however. Dogecoin's 9800% surge in 2021 exemplifies this. A $100 investment could have turned into a life-changing $9800. This experience highlights the potential regret of focusing solely on "safe" investments with lower potential returns.   Taking inspiration from this, some experienced investors are now allocating a small portion of their portfolio to latest meme coins.one of the latest is Miggles listed on Bitget. This strategy allows them to potentially benefit from future bull runs while limiting their overall risk.
