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...

    • In the wake of a brewing conflict between the Nigerian government and Binance, cryptocurrency enthusiasts find themselves on edge, uncertain about the future of their digital investments. Rumors abound that Binance, along with other platforms, might be exacerbating the Naira's devaluation against the dollar, prompting the government to take a hard stance against the exchange. Despite longstanding allegations of wrongdoing, recent events have propelled the government to escalate its actions. The situation has escalated dramatically, with Binance's P2P platform disabled and a staggering $10 billion fine imposed for alleged illegal activities. This punitive measure, coupled with last year's $4.3 billion fine by the SEC, underscores the gravity of the situation. However, skepticism lingers regarding the astronomical sum demanded by the Nigerian government. While Binance has faced regulatory challenges in other jurisdictions, its resilience and market dominance have largely endured. Yet, the potential ramifications of losing access to a key crypto market like Nigeria cannot be ignored. Complicating matters further, the Nigerian House of Representatives has summoned Binance CEO Richard Teng, issuing a seven-day ultimatum for him to address allegations of terrorist financing and money laundering, among other charges. This development casts a shadow over the future prospects of Binance in the country. Amidst the uncertainty surrounding Binance's operations in Nigeria, users are scrambling to identify alternative platforms. While other centralized exchanges (CEX) remain operational within the country, the pressing question remains: which platform will emerge as the most dependable alternative should the situation worsen? https://punchng.com/reps-summon-binance-boss-over-alleged-terrorism-financing/
    • 2024 has been a good year for crypto traders with signs of a bullish market prevailing. For the first time in 3 years, we are witnessing BTC set a new ATH repeatedly. If you endured the prolonged bear market of the previous years, you deserve these gigantic green candles! In addition to BTC's incredible run, several alts have broken out nicely; Ai, memecoin, GameFi projects and so on have spiked. Most notably in the month of February is the run of CEX tokens. According to Foresight News, centralized exchange tokens boast of a widespread price spike in February, based on data from ICO Analytics. Standing tall amongst many is BGB with 62% increase, while ASD, BNB, and KCS witnessed gains of 45%, 33%, and 22% respectively. As a BGB holder myself who’s been holding since June 2023 at an average price of $0.45, it’s been an incredible journey. I’ve witnessed it smash its ATH over again, the latest coming in February when BGB set a new ATH of $1.15. Aside the juicy ROI, BGB usecases have been a flex for me, granting me access to exclusive events, like Launchpads where I’ve also managed mouth-watering gains from my participations. BNB had a remarkable run in the last bull cycle, sadly I missed out having sold mine for peanuts. If you said I’m stoked to right my wrong with BGB this time, you wouldn’t be far from the truth!  Which CEX token(s) are you keenly observing?
