Is anyone investing?

My returns seem good so far - better than good actually....

Longer term views?

Anyone any ideas on best place to invest with buy and hold strategy?

Likewise anyone spread betting Bitcoin... the stop seems really big - obviously because of the volitility....

Any views appreciated.

Looking at Mareno as something to hold for a year or two. It's a new and interesting trend, but small investments as we have no idea how this will flourish or be shutdown

Ethereum flash crash last night. Big sell off > slippage > cascade of stops taken out > flash crash.

ETH $317 to $0.1 in seconds. Then quick recovery.

From Tally sticks to Cash to Altcoin on Blockchain. Could this coming revolution mean the demise of the Fed and all central banks.

 

Potential blockchain applications seem to be spreading too, if it can be tagged, it can be blockchained. Middlemen the world over should be quaking in their boots.

I would be interested to hear opinions regarding the companies sudden increase in Bitcoin spreads to 20 points.

I have noticed this too. Maybe IG are trying to maximise their profits and at the same time due to tight range bound price action minimise the chances of its customers profiting from their trades.

 

The spread was 10 when I started trading GBP Bitcoin. It then increased to 15 and now it is 20. This means the more you increase your trade amount the bigger your starting loss. If there are not any big moves then it if more difficult to profit.

 

Tight Range Bound Performance + Increase in Spreads = IG Benefits

    • Hey @dmedin, our analysts did a piece on this yesterday you might be interested in.  https://www.ig.com/uk/news-and-trade-ideas/what-will-happen-to-the-premier-oil-share-price-after-the-electi-191210
    • They are expecting a good Christmas and will be opening a new robotic 🤖 warehouse in 2021.  So it looks good for a wee long.  🐮
    • When looking at these markets and the trading behaviour of the average retail trader it seems to me that many don't really understand the market they are trading, there are also psychological factors that influence decision making to the detriment of trading success. If you are not confident in your understanding of the market then you are solely dependent on technical analysis but TA is not a given, it can only play out if assisted by fundamental and macro factors, those factors currently point to bull continuation. So the US major indices are routinely hitting new all time highs, the retail trader thinks they need to sell the high in order to buy back lower (buy low sell high right) so the retail trader (the crowd) are constantly trying to pick the tops (and patting themselves on the back thinking they are being contrarian). The positioning data of IG clients tell us this is exactly what's happening. Every time price goes higher the sell position ratio increases, when price is falling in a down trend the buy position ratios go higher. So clearly this is all wrong, when price is continually rising you need to buy high and sell higher. You buy breakouts or pullbacks, you should not be looking to sell a bull trending market at all. So why do they do it? The market is too high (no it's not), it must be the bears turn (wait and see first), but I need to sell the highs, the saying says so (no, you're not an investor), the chart is looking 'toppy' (just no), the TA is pointing down (doesn't matter without fundy and macro assist). An understand of a market comes with experience, until it does stick with the basics and look for longs in an uptrend, don't try to second guess the market and end up constantly fighting against it.
