We've seen a lot of new members join recently so why not introduce yourself below! I'm Dan and I'm the Community manager. It's my job to ensure things run smoothly, and we also have a team of moderators on hand to help.

 

Let me know with a post below what markets you're interested in, what you trade and how you trade it.

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

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.

    • 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.
    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
