SA40 Cash


Recommended Posts




What is the best Indicators to use for SA40 Cash ? Currently using Stochastics 5,3,3 but it seems not to be very accurate. Also follow the daily chart combined with signals of atleast 70%. Economic forecasts not a little unriliable.

Hi   no indicator is reliable on it's own, as all are a function of past data. Stoch  533 is a fast trigger type indicator so the signals need to be qualified in some way depending on what type of trades you are looking for (swing or reversal).

If you are trying to swing you need a trend and momentum indicator eg moving averages.

So, in-order (20,50,100), and sloping MA's showing trend and momentum, then wait for a pullback and use Stoch 533 to trigger entry as Stoch drops out of oversold or oversold (20,80 or ?) on pullback to continue with trend. see daily chart.


If trading reversals you need support and resistance levels as well as an indicator to show waning momentum such as MACD and again use Stoch drop-outs to signal entry.


Experiment with different settings for different time frames and remember no indicator will tell you when a bank decides to put in a big order.

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
