This competition is now closed and the thread is locked.

 

The second Contributor of the Month award in December was a success, with a total of £500's worth of gift vouchers and trading books given out. We want to repeat this in January as our way of saying thank you for the Communities continued involvement, assistance, market discussion, and trade idea conversation!

 

The rules are similar to before. We will be selecting our favorite contributor to the IG community based on both the quantity and quality of their posts. This means the winner won’t necessarily be the person who posts the most messages, but someone who has really helped to bring the community to life.

 

 

1st place (the winner) will receive a £200* gift voucher and £50* worth of trading books. ** 

2nd place will receive a £125* gift voucher and £50* worth of trading books. **

 

Ways to increase your chances of being Contributor of the Month

  • There will be a higher weighting to those who answer other Community members questions and receive 'accepted solutions'. If you answer someone else's question, a mod (or the original poster) will make sure the button is clicked. 
  • Posting quality content across a broad range of topics. 
  • Asking question to IG Community, submitting feedback to IG, and generally getting involved!

3rd place will receive a £75* gift voucher.

 

If you're new to IG Community, or trading in general, it may be daunting to post trade ideas and market discussion. We have therefore reserved the 3rd place prize for someone who may;

  • Introduces themselves to the IG Community 
  • Submits feedback on IG's offering (e.g. feedback on our platform, apps, deal execution etc)
  • Asks any number of questions they like (e.g. how to trade, how to use a certain feature etc)

 

 

We’ll be running this throughout the calendar month of January 2018 with the winner picked at the end of the month. The winner will also have the 'Contributor of the Month' badge added to their profile and a special icon next to your name for the proceeding month so all Community members are aware of your contributions. The competition is subject to our terms and conditions.

 

If you have any questions please ask below.

 

All the best

Those who make money from trading are not here for any prizes, but for relief from the trading bore doom  which most good traders know about.

 

The only thing that attracts people to forums, is money (solid trade set ups), lulz/entertainment   and killing bore doom., other than IG related enquiries.

We are not here for prizes , customers /clients want to see quality content, content that be used to  place trades.Unfortunately this site is getting crowded with technical analysis, most of it is unusable, something which will make it difficult to find quality trade set ups.

 

It is heading in the same direction as private forums, where everybody is discussing 50,000 threads of mainly useless misinformation.They are just wasting their time on it. 

 

This sort of competition should aim for prizes with quality content with trade able analysis. This is my opinion on it.

 

This competition is more for the benefit of I G forum , It should be aimed at  what customers required  i.e trading ideas in a trading forum,  it is currently IG's forum for I G.   Why would you see traders wanting to read 40 different topics on technical analysis that can notbe traded by real traders?

Who is really interested in either opinions of others or any subjective technical analysis , profitable trading is very simple, analysis is a form of opinion.The idea is to keep trading simple K I S S without adding any more complexity.

 

I don't look for ideas from I g , and would not take any suggestion  from any anybody else, but I don't expect seasoned skilled traders are here for lessons on technical analysis or price action trends.They can see it on the pro real time charts, without subjective opinions .

 

One person may find opening 50 threads of opinions on his trading style and instruments , that is quantity but not quality. Already it is difficult to find quality threads, without wasting so much time going through quantity.

 

I have already seen two very poor technical analysis threads, that will lose money or lost money, on this forum.Whilst  there are good technical analysis threads, the recent increased activity in poor non  trade able analysis has increased.In the long run traders will lose money, following these analysts, once bitten twice shy these traders will run  from the forum.This is neither in the long term interests of customers or I G , who eventually will lose out on consistent spread income, in the long run.

 

The reason I posted here, is the prizes should be for quality, I am probably not the person who deserves any prizes, but I already see new posters aiming for quantity. we would like to see an improvement in quality.

Wave Cancel invalid level: 1.06985   The "EURUSD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart" dated 5 March 24, offers a comprehensive analysis of the Euro/U.S. Dollar (EURUSD) currency pair using the Elliott Wave methodology. Conducted on the daily chart, this analysis aims to provide insights into the prevailing trend dynamics and potential future price movements within the broader wave structure. The identified "FUNCTION" is "Trend," indicating a primary focus on determining and navigating the existing trend in the EURUSD pair. This suggests an emphasis on identifying and capitalizing on sustained directional movements over an extended period. The specified "MODE" is "Impulsive," suggesting that the current market conditions are characterized by forceful and decisive price movements aligned with the overall trend. This implies a strong and sustained directional momentum in the EURUSD pair, conducive to impulsive waves. The described "STRUCTURE" is "Blue wave 1," representing a specific phase within the Elliott Wave pattern. The analysis concentrates on the development and progression of blue wave 1, indicating a significant upward movement within the broader wave structure. The identified "POSITION" is "Black wave 3," highlighting the current placement within the larger Elliott Wave pattern. Black wave 3 signifies a powerful phase in the upward trend of the EURUSD pair and suggests a sustained directional move. Regarding "DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES," the focus is on "Blue wave 2." This implies an anticipation of the next corrective phase within the Elliott Wave pattern, suggesting a temporary pullback or consolidation after the completion of the impulsive black wave 3. In the "DETAILS" section, it is noted that "Black wave 2 looking completed at 1.06985." This signifies the conclusion of a specific subwave within the Elliott Wave pattern. It further states that "Now blue wave 1 of 3 is in play," indicating the initiation of the next higher-degree wave. The "Wave Cancel invalid level" is set at 1.06985, serving as a crucial reference point. A breach beyond this level would invalidate the current wave count, necessitating a reassessment of the analysis. In summary, the EURUSD Elliott Wave Analysis for the daily chart on 5 March 24, emphasizes the impulsive and trending nature of the market. The analysis anticipates the continuation of the upward trend, with specific attention to the completion of sub waves and the initiation of the next higher-degree wave.

    • In the wake of a brewing conflict between the Nigerian government and Binance, cryptocurrency enthusiasts find themselves on edge, uncertain about the future of their digital investments. Rumors abound that Binance, along with other platforms, might be exacerbating the Naira's devaluation against the dollar, prompting the government to take a hard stance against the exchange. Despite longstanding allegations of wrongdoing, recent events have propelled the government to escalate its actions. The situation has escalated dramatically, with Binance's P2P platform disabled and a staggering $10 billion fine imposed for alleged illegal activities. This punitive measure, coupled with last year's $4.3 billion fine by the SEC, underscores the gravity of the situation. However, skepticism lingers regarding the astronomical sum demanded by the Nigerian government. While Binance has faced regulatory challenges in other jurisdictions, its resilience and market dominance have largely endured. Yet, the potential ramifications of losing access to a key crypto market like Nigeria cannot be ignored. Complicating matters further, the Nigerian House of Representatives has summoned Binance CEO Richard Teng, issuing a seven-day ultimatum for him to address allegations of terrorist financing and money laundering, among other charges. This development casts a shadow over the future prospects of Binance in the country. Amidst the uncertainty surrounding Binance's operations in Nigeria, users are scrambling to identify alternative platforms. While other centralized exchanges (CEX) remain operational within the country, the pressing question remains: which platform will emerge as the most dependable alternative should the situation worsen? https://punchng.com/reps-summon-binance-boss-over-alleged-terrorism-financing/
