Index trading is easy and contradicts what this video below suggest.Most gurus in trading are non traders, they know nothing about real trading.They talk nonsense!

Index trading is very difficult.  Indices move very fast and a winning position can turn into a big losing one in just an hour or two.  that's part of that attraction - obviously because its an index there are a lot of stocks that make up an index. An index is giving you a measure of sentiment in the market. A company can go to zero but that's unlikely to happen to an index.

You have been going around in circles for the last 2 years on this forum 'system hopping', claiming to be a total success while always being disingenuous to all other posters. And it turns out that over the last 2 years you have amassed an account totalling a 'self confessed' £1000  while claiming 20 - 30 % profit a week.

 

Do you perhaps see that some might find this incongruous?

'There is evidence on the site showing indices trading can profitable'

You could just look at hedge funds and investment institutions which are profitable via indices trading. With regards to the site there are only 2 weeks of a trading journal which is not long enough to say there is evidence of profitable trading.

If you have back tested it then why do you start with an account of £1000 and not £10,000?

 

Have you had a recent buy at support trade? Recently you've mentioned a retracement trade which didn't work out. Have you also back tested the retracement trade and is it also profitable in the long run.

 

I don't understand why you traded a different set up if you know buying at support is profitable.

a)most back testing is useless, because of psychology.An understanding of trading psychology is required, to know why most back testing is useless. Back testing does not always cover everything , about the trader and his own mindset.I had to approach this trading with caution, using a small account and increase the account, if all is OK.I am hoping to go to a £50 k account soon.

 

This subject is huge, to learn more

b)I don't need to  back test trend retrace strategy on the indices,  a look at weekly charts  will show how retraces eventually rebounds from the retraces or dips. I look at losing trades as part of a series of option trades entries, if one fails it is the profitable ones that matter.Just allow   1,000 ticks draw down  may happen in a bear market.It is all about taking risk

 

c)Buying at supports is not always profitable, sometimes I miss the support trades, in which case I will use trend based entry.

Casey"You have included the word 'profitable' in the title while offering no statistical analysis to back the claim. Clearly spurious".

 

 

Last week I  started trading stupid forex, it lost me 20%  whereas  indices made 40 %, so net profit was 20 %.I have now stopped trading forex.From my own experience and huge experience, I  have always found indices trading profitable.If it is profitable for me, it is profitable.

How many years should I show profitable results for, before I can call it profitable?I suggest your people at trade city provide audited certified accounts for proving forex is profitable, in the meantime I will claim it as profitable.

    • Hi @greenscorpio1000 Thanks for reaching out.  You can use the platform to check how much the daily charge would be. You can add the Swap bid (Rate used to calculate your overnight funding) on the platform by searching Cocoa- London >> Right click on it and add to Watchlist >> Add the Watchlist to your Workspace.  Once this is done, click on the three lines next to 'Market' on the top left and add Swap bid/Swap offer to view the expected daily rate. You simply take this rate and multiply it by your size to estimate the daily interest payment on your account.  Overnight Funding = Bet Size x Rate  Negative number is a charge Positive Number is a credit Using an example with the figures shown in the above screenshot, if you are short London Cocoa with  bet size GBP2, your overnight funding will be GBP2 x -2.36 = -GBP 4.72 charge We have an example on How we calculate Overnight Funding for Commodities on our website. This will give you a clear indication if this will be a credit or a debit in your account.  All the best, OfentseIG    
    • We are moving into ‘nonfarm payrolls Friday’ and the potential for volatility is significant after a broad mix of preceding employment statistics. While the employment report can certainly spur the markets like the S&P 500 and Dollar to action, traders should keep tabs on growing warnings from the IMF and Fed officials.   Full article on DailyFX
