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,

 

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

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.

    • The Core of William Mason's Investment Philosophy At the heart of William Mason's investment approach is a keen understanding of market dynamics and an unyielding commitment to empirical research. Mason believes that the key to successful investing lies in identifying and following market trends through a systematic, data-driven approach. His system uses a combination of trend lines, moving averages, and other technical indicators to pinpoint optimal entry and exit points, thereby maximizing investor returns while minimizing risk. Market Analysis and the Current Financial Landscape As we navigate through 2024, the global financial markets present a complex tapestry of opportunities and challenges. Mason points out that despite the apparent volatility, there are underlying patterns that, when understood, can lead to profitable investment decisions. For instance, the performance of Berkshire Hathaway illustrates a less volatile yet highly rewarding opportunity in the current market environment. Berkshire’s stock has demonstrated strong returns with less volatility compared to the S&P 500, making it a prime example of how solid, fundamental investing pays off, especially in uncertain times. Diversification and Risk Management A critical element of Mason’s strategy involves diversification and meticulous risk management. By analyzing companies like Berkshire Hathaway, which holds a diversified portfolio across several robust sectors including insurance, energy, and technology, Mason illustrates the importance of investing in entities with strong fundamentals and diverse revenue streams. This strategy not only shields the investment from sector-specific downturns but also positions it to capitalize on multiple growth avenues. William Mason: Advocating for a Smarter Investing Future Transitioning from theory to practice, William Mason not only devised robust investment strategies but also moved to fill a significant market gap by developing a user-friendly stock trading app. This platform caters specifically to Australian investors, providing them with tools and analytics similar to those used by professional traders. By democratizing access to sophisticated investment resources, Mason aims to empower everyday investors to make informed decisions based on real-time data and comprehensive market analysis.
    • AUDJPY Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart,     Australian Dollar / Japanese Yen (AUDJPY) Day Chart   AUDJPY Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend                             MODE: impulsive as C                             STRUCTURE: red wave C                             POSITION:  blue wave Z                           DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES: black wave C                     DETAILS red wave B of Z looking completed, now red wave C of Z of B looking started . Wave Cancel invalid level:97.779     The AUD/JPY Elliott Wave Analysis for the Day Chart provides an overview of the current market trend and likely future developments in the Australian Dollar/Japanese Yen currency pair, utilizing the principles of Elliott Wave Theory.   Function The function of this analysis is described as "Counter Trend." This indicates that the current wave structure represents a corrective move against the primary trend. Counter-trend movements often suggest a retracement or a temporary shift in market direction.   Mode The mode for this chart is specified as "impulsive as C." This mode denotes a stronger directional movement within the Elliott Wave structure, indicating that the current counter-trend may contain a significant shift or wave progression.   Structure The structure is identified as "red wave C," which typically indicates the final stage of a corrective pattern. This aligns with the function of the analysis, pointing towards a potential transition from correction to a new impulsive phase.   Position The position within the broader Elliott Wave structure is "blue wave Z." This position implies that the current pattern is in a complex corrective phase, potentially consisting of multiple interconnected corrective waves.     Direction for the Next Lower Degrees The analysis suggests that the next lower degree trend is toward "black wave C." This provides a directional cue, indicating where the trend is likely to head following the current wave structure.   Details The analysis mentions that "red wave B of Z" appears to be completed, suggesting that a key part of the corrective cycle has ended. This is significant because it denotes the beginning of a new phase, specifically "red wave C of Z of B." This structure could represent the start of a more substantial movement within the current Elliott Wave pattern, indicating a shift in momentum.   The "Wave Cancel invalid level" is listed at 97.779. This level is crucial for understanding where the current wave structure might break down. If the market moves past this point, the current analysis could be invalidated, requiring a new interpretation of the Elliott Wave structure.   In summary, the analysis outlines a transition in the AUD/JPY pair from a corrective phase to a potentially more impulsive structure. It provides key points to watch for traders and analysts, indicating possible changes in market direction. The critical invalidation level gives traders a boundary for risk management, serving as a guide for trading decisions and strategy adjustments.         AUDJPY Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4 Hour Chart,     Australian Dollar / Japanese Yen (AUDJPY) 4 Hour Chart   AUDJPY Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend                             MODE: impulsive as C                             STRUCTURE: red wave C                             POSITION: blue wave Z                           DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER DEGREES: red wave C (started)                     DETAILS red wave B of Z looking completed, now red wave C of Z looking started . Wave Cancel invalid level:97.779                                                       The AUD/JPY Elliott Wave Analysis for the 4-Hour Chart provides insights into the current market trends and future projections for the Australian Dollar/Japanese Yen currency pair using the Elliott Wave Theory.   ### Function The function of this analysis is identified as "Counter Trend." This suggests that the current market structure is moving in opposition to a broader, larger trend. Counter-trend movements often signal corrections or retracements within a larger trend.   ### Mode The mode described in this analysis is "impulsive as C," indicating that the ongoing wave pattern is impulsive and represents a final phase of a correction. Impulsive waves generally signify more substantial and direct price movements within the Elliott Wave structure.   ### Structure The structure for this analysis is noted as "red wave C," indicating that the market is in the final phase of a corrective cycle. This structure aligns with the counter-trend function, suggesting a more substantial correction in progress, possibly signaling the beginning of a new trend or the resumption of the broader trend.   ### Position The position within the Elliott Wave cycle is listed as "blue wave Z," indicating a higher degree of complexity and possible combination patterns. This is part of a larger structure that often involves multiple corrective waves interconnected in a larger pattern.   ### Direction for the Next Higher Degrees The analysis points towards "red wave C," indicating that the current impulsive phase could lead to a broader continuation of the trend, suggesting a transition from correction to impulsion.   ### Details The details provided in the analysis indicate that "red wave B of Z" is looking completed, suggesting that a key part of the correction phase has ended. The analysis identifies that "red wave C of Z" is likely beginning, which represents a more substantial impulsive movement in the current cycle. This is a potential signal for traders to watch for continuation patterns.   The "Wave Cancel invalid level" of 97.779 is crucial. This level acts as a boundary; if breached, the current Elliott Wave pattern becomes invalid, necessitating a re-evaluation. This invalidation level is critical for traders and analysts as it guides their risk management strategies.   In summary, the analysis describes a complex Elliott Wave structure, focusing on the transition from a corrective phase to a more impulsive one. It underscores significant points for traders to watch, indicating potential directional shifts in the market.   Technical Analyst : Malik Awais Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!      
    • I am a little puzzled about the claim of the DAX being an easy market to trade. Moreover, thank you for the charts examples, but I am skeptical about that too. I am too old in this game to believe any claim made on an historical piece of data. But please do give me some more pieces of hard tangible evidence that the DAX may be an easier market than let's say the Dow or the S&P. I can allow for my mind to be changed. In the mean-time I believe that trading is a minefield, and I am never careful enough. The DAX is no exception as far as I am concerned. All the best
