I mainly use set and forget option  strategies using I G options on forex , indices and oil.Last two weeks I made 331 ticks profit.Professional traders aim for 25 ticks a week average, so I am pleased.

I think I am qualified to talk about the road to profitable trading.My trading changed when I started set and forget strategies, using daily and weekly options.I can simply buy the options, set the profit target with a cash trade, and walk away from the screen.It bypassed all the psychological handicaps of the human mind.The main problem, in my view, is trading psychology.

 

I have been working on set and forget strategies for years.Anyone can devise profitable strategies, if they know how.A little improvement on the strategy below can make it profitable, I know how, just wait patiently until I have time.

By using options traders can eliminate the problems with stops getting hit etc.

Set and Forget Forex Trading – Keep Your Day Job

 

In the strategy in this link, I had a lot psychological issues with the trade breaking down, if I had employed a set and forget option trade, trading would be easier and more profitable.

Trading psychology is 95 % handicap

I spent many years studying trading psychology.

The evidence is there on forexfactory, there are simple free profitable methods ,2700 systems and techniques , yet 95% fail and disappear.If traders don’t understand the mind ,how it works subconsciously in trading , the traders can not have any plans for the 90% risk of under performance due to psychology.It is with the mind where traders lose in trading due to emotions ,stress , need to be right , subconscious emotional executions ,mind traps , automatic mind in trading , beliefs in trading , subconscious errors , brain command center shutdown during trading , brain freezing in trade executions ,the power the thought , negative wiring of human brain and it’s performance in trading ,meditation , unreality reading of the real market conditions,cognitive biases in trading decisions , mental traps , revenge trading,overconfidence, lack of confidence, benefits of patience and disadvantages of impatient traders , impassivity , self sabotage in trading executions , stress responses , amygdala hijackings ,personality , ego and other psyche characteristics.

I  make profit with set and forget strategies, I  lose on cash trading, that is how brains are designed.I have made more workable set and forget strategies, than you will ever find on internet forums  or internet. Most of the cash strategies , that set and forget , are not workable.

 

Most strategies can be made into option set and forget strategy, provided they are not scalping, the instrument has to be very volatile to make money. 

 

I am doing well with options "set and forget strategies", as I explained in this separate thread.The option spreads and using options makes money, but I  give it all back on cash indices and forex. Yesterday I got chopped out on Dow with tight stops, on FX  all week I got chopped out on tight stops, something that you teach is tight stops.

 

Here are  other option set and forget strategies that  I use .

Last 4 weeks the profit was 508.99 ticks , if I had not traded fx  cash and indices cash where I lost all my profits , the ticks profit would be almost 150 ticks a week only from indices set and forget strategies.

Hello,

 

Can I trade future and options of indices like FTSE, S&P and future and options of stocks like BP, Barclays as well as future and options of forex pairs through IG? Also any idea about minimum amount that I require to take a position for example to buy a FTSE contract at todays/31-Jan-2018 price i.e. £7471 and also to buy a call option of say £7500. Also whats the amount I have to keep if I trader a future and also buy an in the money option of EUR/USD?
Also can all the trades of both future and options be done online or I have to ring customer service?


Many thanks,

trader_1974

So you can trade all options, bar individual stocks, on the classic dealing platform. You will need to phone deal for an individual stock, however once booked to your account you'll be able to seeing running P&L on your desktop or mobile. 

 

If you buy a call and the future there will note be an offset. To get an exact quote in real time (as these things are variable on the delta) please give one of our dealers a call and they can walk you though the calculation.

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG
