Now into my seventies, I gave up paid employment just before my 50th birthday, to trade UK stocks from home instead. It worked. But because I began with FAR less capital than most advisers considered necessary, leveraged spreadbets played a significant role for me. Once I passed 65 and my pensions kicked in, I was able to ease back from using leverage, but still make the occasional spreadbet.

Hi, I am a new trader. Hope to learn from so many smart people here. I have traded shares before but I have to admit the wide range of CFD products in IG.com is really huge and overwhelming. Please can you teach me how to become rich and successful like you?

Hi, I am new to IG Trading. Just a query about buying shares... can I select buying at market or at a price until filled?   My system is excluding me buying at a price until filled, just at current day. I am buying Australian shares.

Never seen this before, So Hi...Been "Retail Trading" for over a decade, In the last few years concentrated heavily on automation with the REST API that IG Provide. Very good stuff. I release a lot of code for free for people to use. It's not that hard to find if you want a look, I am not into self promoting. If people are looking they will find it. Annoyed by the ESMA regs imposed upon us last year so focus on Stocks alot more now.

Hi,

I am JeForceX from Singapore!

1. Let the Community know something about your trade history. Have you ever traded before? If so, what did you trade? What are you interested in and do you have any trade ideas for the future?
I used to be an Equity Trader before transforming into a REIT Investor over a period of 5 years. Used to make my trading decisions solely based on Fundamental Analysis and paid a considerable amount of "Tuition Fee" to "Mr. Markets". I am presently trading Forex, Commodities, and Indices on the IG Web Trading Platform.

2. How do you make your trade decisions? Fundamental or technical analysis?
After learning about Technical Analysis, I started to look at the markets from a different perspective. As of today, I make my trading decisions based on Technical Analysis while taking into consideration probabilities Fundamental factors which could affect my trading plan.

3. What do you want to get out of IG Community? Education, trade ideas, help?
I seek to become a Consistently Profitable Trader through education and discussion with members of the IG Community.

    • Hi @GRINSA @joejones1905, Unfortunately this function is not available in the share dealing accounts. You can access your daily statement to see at what price level you bought or sold shares. I will forward your feedback to the relevant department. Thank you - Arvin
    • Video presentation from Dr McCullough who has been posting on covid since the start. Reveals some truly concerning information on the current situation re; covid and the vaccines. - Looks at independent safety oversight (none). - Treatment protocols early and late (officially there is still no early treatment) - CDC reporting (misleading systematic asymmetrical bias) - Delta and legacy alpha data (99% of cases are now delta) - Major conflicts of interest. Really horrifying that this worldwide trial with intended 100% participation has no safety oversight at all, there is no one to stop it as the data on the vaccines is increasingly disturbing. Scientific, covers the important points of many research papers, fast paced but clear and pointed. The most important video I've seen on covid and the vaccines, covers a lot of ground, absolutely must watch. (1h:50min) Pub'd 24 Sept 2021.   The Covid testimony of Dr Peter McCullough – Part 1: Cancelled for telling the truth - The Conservative Woman  
    • I'd go with that - I'm working off the Interaction of the Interest Rate cycle and the Stock Market cycle - Stock turned Inflationary from a cycle perspective late 2016, from deflationary which started 2000, for that 16 year cycle everything deflationary has happened and the action to try to create inflation - Robert Pretcher (Elliott Wave International) wrote "Conquer the crash" in 1999 - although he is/was wrong on the stock market outlook, the rest of the book was pretty much spot on from a central bank/economic aspect tackling deflationary pressures etc From a cyclic point of view the stock market cycle from 2000 basically repeated the 1929 crash cycle, x cycles back in the same stock market cycle - last time BoE Int rates were depressed for 22 years was from 1929 until 1951 which coincided with said stock market cycle  We've a generation of people who think Interest rates are always this low! the shock should be in the property market and especially anyone with a Buy to Let Investment property that has got a bad/poor yield as well as mortgaged to the hilt - they'll more than likely see negative returns once taxation and costs running it are taken into account, which will be good for FTB's as they'll have a nice supply of affordable housing stock to pick from as the rise to normality for Int rates should then cause a dip in the property market (possibly)  Different rules apply to the markets during deflationary and Inflationary cycles and you find that central banks aren't on it in terms of getting it right which is why they got caught out in 2003 / 2009 and now with Inflation to which they [BoE] should react to Inflationary pressures by raising rates even though we all know for some time Inflation has been occurring Fun times
