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.

    • trading US small cap gappers as per ross cameron, here's the thread, what a ******* disaster that was.  
    • sounds like you have been suckered in by that scammer ross cameron of warrior trading 🤕
    • neither SB nor CFD are linked to the exchange unless you are dealing through the DMA platform and even then you are still dealing through IG. you are taking a bet on a move in the market, someone must cover that bet, who? it can only be either another buyer/seller or IG. you can't get filled if no one takes the other side of the bet, WHO? it can only be an other trader or IG and as I've already said it's obviously not IG or you would have got your fill automatically.
