Here is a link to some good analysis




anylysis at i g


I don't use current analysis thoughts or beliefs in my trading.I use a supports entry system, where I buy at support levels.The resistance  levels  are used for short trades


Daily options Method
This method uses  daily options .Every cash trade is hedged with options , if long cash I buy a long put at the money or near the money is bought ,with a maximum risk of 30 ticks /usually aim for 20 or 10 ticks.It is important to manage this risk with options  as options limit risk, and because profits are expected to be small like 20 ticks.

short positions
if short cash , buy a long call at the money or near the money is bought ,with a maximum risk of 30 ticks /usually aim for 20 or 10 ticks


Weekly method 
The starting risk on weekly options is 60 ticks .Every cash trade against weekly options is hedged with options , if long cash a long put at the money or near the money is bought ,with a maximum risk of 60 ticks /usually aim for 40 or 30 ticks.It is important to manage this risk , because profits are expected to be small like 40 ticks.

Daily Method single options.I may change this daily method to buy only options occasionally.
Sometimes there will be opportunities to buy options for 12 ticks , In place of doing hedged trades .

This method is long biased and aims to buy at supports , supports do get broken in the short term , but the options enable the trades to be kept open for the rest of the day .There several types of supports including horizontal, diagonal , channel and trend line .The stock market indices are long biased.During trends I trade diagonal , channel and trend line supports.

I look for support areas to buy call options.

Professionals manage risk


Professionals focus on limiting risk and protecting their capital. Amateurs focus on how much money they can make.


IG's options allow me to limit risk, as an example price falls 500 ticks,  I don't use stops, with a 30 tick cost put option on daily,  my risk is limited to 30 to 40 ticks..After deducting the option cost, my profit  can be several hundred ticks  if  I  decide to run my profits.




Here are open trades on a live account showing real trade examples

I have just closed the trades on dax for 20 tick profit  


See below




Why do I post ?


Successful profitable trading is boring and I am bored most of the day  I mean 99 % of the time.I place my trades and have nothing to do all day.



Professional traders  find trading is boring , because they rarely trade  and are usually bored with the market.The market rarely offers them good exciting trading opportunities ,they don’t exist everyday or every week in the markets , they are sitting bored.

I have been profitable  for 6 months , but I am still trying to master the intraday mindset, to be able to follow  my method with discipline  and stress free.I have been on training course just try only to follow ,this type of trading and not be sucked into non method trades.Last week twice I got sucked into non method trades in eur/usd, as a result I have deleted currency charts from my platform.


The method I use is very good and profitable, the issue is the mindset which I am programming and training at the moment.I am going to trade larger amounts like 10  to £100 per tick and higher, once the mindset is ready.The method is scale able because IG  can cover their much higher risks in the market. 


I am not bored at the method, instruments I trade (Dax and Dow), I am bored because once you put on a trade, there is nothing to do until the market moves, gives you your profit or you close the trades and start again.


Trading this is very easy, I am training the mind, to be able to trade this method subconsciously without mistakes.Making option decisions, without thinking and automatically will not be easy for another trader.Until a trader has practiced this type of trading for months on demo , he will not see the whole picture.There are different types of strategies I use on different occasions.


Profitability is not the issue, money is not the issue, it is the enemy within that is the scary.This type of set and forget trading reduces the risks of psychological demons being aroused.

    • Q: How can I experience the Fairy Cat metaverse? A: Debuting in January 2023, Fairy Cat is one of the most popular crypto metaverse games. While earlier games (World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Destiny 2) either precede blockchain technology or have not integrated it into their games at all, more recent metaverse iterations - such as FairyCat - integrate metaverse games and blockchain platforms. These so-called "crypto metaverse" games use blockchain technology to achieve encrypted in-game cash, play-to-earn (P2E) and non-fungible tokens (NFT), decentralization and other functionality to bring extraordinary benefits to metaverse games. relevant impact. You don't need to be a crypto expert to play this innovative game, although a little crypto knowledge is helpful to take advantage of all the functionality of FairyCat. Start exploring Fairy Cat: 1. Go to the Fairy Cat website to learn more about the game's currency models, then download the Metamask wallet. 2. Start earning money by opening the game in the Metamask wallet browser. At this point, the game will connect to your wallet account. Don't worry that this game will steal your wallet balance, because it doesn't need your account authorization data, it just needs your wallet data. 3. Once you are in Fairy Cat, you can go through a money transfer tutorial to learn the basic controls. Then you can earn money in the following three methods: Method 1: Adopt a cat to help you find treasures, and you can make profit after selling the treasures. Method 2: Synthesize an LV1 elf cat through 5 elves, and then sell the LV1 elf cat to earn money. This can be understood simply as using 5U to earn 10U (50% probability), and you can buy items to increase the synthesis rate. Method 3: Invite your friends to play the game. After your friends earn money, you can also get commission income. The income is very high.
    • HI,  Please if any IG supporting staff can answer the questions below? 1. in the upcoming AMC/APE vote on 14 March 2023, can shareholder that hold AMC and APE at IG able to make a vote? I also have AMC and APE at IBKR and they did send out a notification to inform me that I can do proxy vote. Will IG do the same? 2. the upcoming vote is to determine APE covert back to AMC then do reverse spilt. Last year after APE issued, IG staff told me that they have to move APE to share dealing account from my ISA account as ISA is not eligible to hold APE (which is completely unbelivable, my APE at AJ Bell and HL are still sitting in ISA account). Anyway, if the conversion and reverse spilt is going to happen, will IG move my APE back to ISA account for the corporate action? Many Thanks
    • The epidemic in recent years has produced profound changes in people's lifestyles, and many of their activities have started to be developed in the virtual world, which plays an important role in promoting the development of the universe of meta. Games, as an important part of the universe of meta, will be the first industry to gain the benefits , but the following conditions are still indispensable for blockchain games to achieve better development.   - Wallets and Exchanges. Through the use of wallets, game users can truly take control of the assets in the game, and exchanges provide a trading platform and liquidity for these game assets NFT, helping users trade and revitalize their game assets. Wallets are a key application for depositing blockchain assets. Currently, wallets such as Metamask are not enough to support the extensive adoption of block games, and wallets will further advance community drive the popularity of blockchain games.  - Game playability. The biggest difference between blockchain games and traditional games is that gamers are also investors. Many blockchain games have gone out of course, treating all users as investors only and forgetting that the essence of making games is to develop high-quality games that users are interested in paying for. If most people play a game just to make money, and no one is ready to pay for it, it becomes a side-scam. The revenue of the participants of the side scam comes from the money of the people who come later, and if there are not enough people who come later, they will not be able to cash in the revenue, leading to the breakdown.  - Speed and performance. A high level of concurrency is the characteristic of game applications, so Wax, Coinan Chain and Polygon, which are public chains with a high level of concurrency and low fees, have attracted a large number of game developers. In the future, with the maturity of technologies such as Ethernet Layer 2 and slice scaling, as well as the maturity of other gaming public chain technologies compatible with EVM, blockchain games will have a better development and operation environment.  - Cross-chain and interaction. Cross-chain and interaction of game assets will be a direction of future development of metaverse games, and blockchain should be connected and accessible like the Internet. The maturity of cross-chain technology in the future will promote the cross-chain transfer of game assets and NFT, and improve the interaction experience of the system                                                                                     The game should maintain the operation of the project by relying on the payment of some users or selling profitable products, just like the new blockchain game Fairy Cat in 2023, which developed diverse gameplay for players and increased the playability of the game, thus got the recognition of many players. Blockchain games need to work hard on game experience and playability. Token economics is essentially just a kind of interest structure , and even good token economics cannot replace the development, operation and profitability of the project itself. It is believed that with the maturity of the above conditions, more and more game developers and investors will enter this industry and together promote the production of some blockchain games with beautiful graphics, first-class experience and high playability.
