[LOCKED] New around here?

Hi, have been trading for about 5 years, on and off, mainly currencies. It's hard but satisfying when I get it right. Still learning in that I haven't made any money, in fact I have net lost. 

 

This will change.

 

I am looking at CCI, support and resistance and differing timeframes as my guide. D1, H4, M30 and M5

 

Am interested in systems and programming pro realtime to screen for precise conditions. Maybe eventually automated trading, but that seems a long way off.

 

Cheers

Hi and welcome every one. I am also a new user to the IG platform and, from what I can see, it is one of the better platforms out there.

 

I have been using a few different platforms, and have not found one as good as this one. I would be interested to know how many South Africans are on this platform.

 

For all the new guys that have joined, take time line and read as much as you can so that, you can have a good understanding of how markets work.

 

You need to follow the major world markets, this includes major news events et cetera. Once you get comfortable you can develop your own trading strategy.

 

IG from what I have seen has some great videos on YouTube and their website as well as some pole full re-sources for you to get started.

 

If I can be of assistance to anyone please feel free to shout.

Hi everybody

 

My name is Hadi. A beginner in every sense here. Unfortunately I am extremely busy so I cant use this tool too much and already envy you.

 

I am an oil and gas consultant and the reason I am here is because I know huge potential of oil and gas company these days.

 

I am trying to use CFD but it is a nightmare to me as I cant replicate the costs properly in my excel sheet. and I dont understand few terms like margin?

 

I am living in Edgware, London, and I can offer a nice chat about oil and gas business, a drink or lunch for anybody who has some spare time to show me how he/she is using CFD properly.

 

My email is hadi.parvizi@gmail.com

 

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

hadi

A few of thoughts that just randomly popped into my head on reading your post  :

 

  1. Margin is basically the coverage you need in your account for any position (spreadbet or CFD) that you open.  You also pay leverage cost each day your position is open, you are basically taking out a loan to make the trade, hence the term leveraged trading.  The IG site offers a number of learning areas where such things are explained much better and more accurately than I can
  2. Some people on the forum are interested in Oil and there are some threads on this where your insights would be most welcome but it is a hard market to trade as I'm sure you will be aware of so random thought #1 is consider other easier markets in addition to Oil.  While it is normal for people to gravity to what they know (or think they know...) this may not turn out to be the best strategy.
  3. Why CFDs?  I have used CFDs for individual share trading because they mimic actual share trading in that you buy a certain £ value of shares.  CFDs are taxable (also means losses are allowable for tax return) whereas spread betting, being classes as betting (correctly in my view) are tax free.  I have found that spread betting is easier to comprehend as a vehicle for indices, commodities contracts and FX.

Good luck and please do contribute as much as possible to the debates on the forum.

Hi Dan,

I am very new to IG and investing.

I decided to take a punt on Fastbrick Robotics (FBR ASX) as my 1st dip in the water. Please so far as I have made 347% on my investment with I hope still more to come.

If I am wanting some advice on certain shares from the community where is best to post?

Cheers

Hi guys

Glad so many of you have joined. Firstly, you can get a lot of information on CFD's on the Internet, YouTube and the iG markets website.

 

Secondly, feel free to start a thread in one of the sections regarding the stock or share you want an opinion on.

Hi My Name is Craig

 

Just thought I'd introduce myself. I studied in South Africa. A farmer originally. Studied accounts and honors managements and investment accounting in South Africa. Currently living in London. Working as a model so I have allot of time on the shares. Trying to build so good strategies.

 

They say the best way to learn is trial and error but I think that's tough in trading so I hope I can learn from others and there experiences here.

 

Hope to hear and find out what strategies are going around.

 

Have a great week trading

Hey Craig there is a lot of strategies on trading that non work all of the times. The best strategy is to try a few with very small positions and see for yourself what suites you and the time and money on your hand. You have to try it at least over a dozen times to get a realistic results.

Hi I'm fairly new to trading. So much fun! Wish I'd discovered it years ago. I only trade the SA40 at the moment and so far have managed to hang on to my initial investment! I really hope to one day make this a full time occupation!

This analysis provides an in-depth look at COST's price movements using the Elliott Wave Theory, helping traders identify potential opportunities based on current trends and market structure. We will cover insights from both the daily and 4-hour charts to offer a comprehensive perspective on COST's market behavior.   * COST Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart* In our Elliott Wave analysis of Costco Wholesale Corp. (COST), we observe an impulsive trend characterized by a motive structure. COST is currently positioned in wave 5, specifically in wave {iii} of 5, indicating an upside move. After successfully completing the triangle in wave 4, COST has finished wave {ii} of 5 and is now poised to move higher into wave {iii}.

The analysis suggests an upside continuation into wave (iii), with an awareness that current wave (i) and (ii) might be a more conservative count as wave {iii} and {iv}. This suggests that if the market confirms this alternate view, COST could target equality of wave {iii} vs. wave {i} at $900. Traders should be prepared for potential adjustments in the wave count and watch for consolidation or corrective patterns that might precede further upward movements.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!

    • Alpha Trade breaks through the liquidity dilemma of 2024 In 2024, with the continuous enrichment and increase of market trading strategies, and the wave of international politics and interest disparities, the volatility of gold and the Japanese yen has also shown significant fluctuations. In this environment, we will find that more and more retailers are conflicting with investors, generally involving trading violations. One of the major reasons for this conflict is that retailers lack liquidity or cannot fully meet the frequency of investor strategies, resulting in a large number of sliding points or even negative values, which is the least desirable situation for industry development. As a leading global liquidity provider, Alpha Trade provides ample liquidity services to retail institutions and high-quality customers in the market through partnerships with dozens of banks, investment banks, and non banking institutions. For some special strategies and trading varieties, we still customize a tailored liquidity plan through the combination and optimization of liquidity plans, providing the most practical guarantee for customer profitability. And because we are located in data centers in important financial cities around the world, we have always been able to provide customers with stable and fast quotations. Thanks to our good market depth, we can also serve market customers with huge transaction volumes well, allowing them to better gain their market share. The expertise of Alpha Trade will undoubtedly bring another technological revolution to the Asian region, achieving more professional level investment clients and obtaining substantial returns in the market.
