Hi Dan 

 

While I'm not a recent member, I thought I'd reply - if I was a new member I'd like to know the existing members - plus I'd presonally like to know some of the older members better.

 

I trade the ASX, primarily using binaries, a day trader, trade full-time.  My own ideas, my own account.  Live in Australia. 

Cheers.

Hi Dan,

 

In the same spirit as zero, I'm new here and consider myself a novice trader. I use the Elliott Wave principle to determine any trading decision and use IG's platform to spreadbet.

 

I spend a lot of time analysing and labelling charts and, if I have a wave count I'm confident in , I'll trade , whatever it is. However my main focus recently has been GOLD, SILVER OIL and EUR/USD . I'm based in Surrey, UK.

 

I like this forum although it would benefit from more contributors. Early days though eh?

 

Looking forward to sharing and gaining more knowledge this year and wishing good luck to all

Hi my name is T.  I have been trading for the last 3 years.  Mainly on equities and Forex.  The advice I can give is capital presevation and Patience.  I use a few tools to determine which shares to deal with but am cautious to research the financials of the company and how their shares have done over the last 5 years.  I tend to look at the 'defensive' sector shares and try to stay away from the high volitility (mining) shares.

 

Please reach out toi me as I have a few questions for your guys

Hi Dan

My name is Sarb. I trade on spread betting, mainly forex. I also have a share dealing account and a shares ISA through which I trade predominantly UK equities.

I have some experience of working with Equities and fixed Income at an Investment bank. And have recently been able to focus full time on trading.

Hi Dan,

 

It's almost a year now since i started using online platforms for trading. I have been looking at the markets long time before so i decided to dive in and that's exactly what i did. At the moment i believe i have reached the bottom and my equity curve stopped falling. I tried multiple markets but i am mainly focusing on the FTSE short and medium term. My strategy is not far from profitable, i believe it just needs time and lots of self education.

All of this while working a full time job in the oil industry in Aberdeen.

 

Cheers,
Radu

Hi to all,

I'm Dave and trade mainly shares, tend to stick with FTSE 350 as I find good volume oportunity trades in this market. Been trading for around last four years in my spare time with mixed results, Trade my own rules and plan and use the sharescope/sharepad platform for my research. Did trade forex early on but did not work for me so stick with shares.

Hiya Dan, I manage my own and our family ISA and SIPP portfolios. So, I am basically an investor not really a spread-better but I do take oaccsional bets on SP%00, Ndx, Dax, Dow and of late UK mining sector. I find IG range of instruments, ProReal Charts and its List feature the best available among the providers. I have been with IG for last 6-7 years.

Hi Dan, hi everyone,

 

I'm also Dan... I'm very new to trading, having spent my career to date as a helicopter pilot.

 

Having dabbled with stocks, I've recently started trading the FTSE100 and GBP/USD - I'm trying to find my niche, so at present I'm experimenting with scalping/day trading/swing trading, using mostly technical analysis with an awarenss of the fundamentals & market sentiment. I'm also trying out options strategies, based upon the underlying's volatility.

 

I can afford to be experimental as I have recently switched to a demo account whilst I build my knowledge and experience - as I'd like to move into trading full time in a couple of years time.

 

I'm British, but currently living in Italy.

Hi

 

I've been playing with SB on Forex for about a year now, on and off. I've found I'm very good at letting losses run and closing winning trades too early, :smileysad: but found that the best way for me is to set a trade and then not watch it. :smileyhappy:

 

I've had some success recently with the Signals in IG so going to explore that a bit more. Would be interest to know the success people have had with that approach.

    • In this week’s Trading the Trend, Axel Rudolph FSTA looks at the downward trend of the German DAX, going short on the bounce to 12,300, with a stop-loss at 12,940 and a long-term downside target of 11,500. ig        
    • BRITISH POUND TALKING POINTS: GBP/USD was in a difficult spot earlier in September and the problem has continued to devolve. It’s a negative feedback type situation around the UK and the British Pound with a collapsing currency leading to surging bond yields which led to a BoE intervention effort that’s led to more currency collapse. It’s a painful feedback loop that hasn’t yet stopped. Is there hope on the horizon? And is this a problem that will be relegated to the UK, as it has similar hues to problems being seen in Europe and the United States. The current backdrop is messy as bonds and FX are screaming panic and meanwhile, US equities look relatively calm. I discussed this at-length in yesterday’s webinar. The British Pound collapsed last week, or so we thought, only to open our platforms this week to see what a collapse in a major currency actually looked like. GBP/USD has set a fresh all-time-low and perhaps more disturbingly, in the days since, price hasn’t really rebounded much. Sellers are still hitting the pair and now there’s other dislocations that are taking place.   The UK is faced with a similar problem as Europe and the US with extreme inflation. All three Central Banks were rather calm as inflation built through much of last year but this year, as inflation continued to run-higher even after initial tightening efforts, worry started to show given that central bank efforts were not only unsuccessful but also appearing to bring on even more problems.
