IG Community forum structure idea

Recommended Posts

Hi James

 

The crypto and forex should be separate sections, possibly with subsections for technical analysis, systems and methods, general analysis without trade set ups.Information should be easy to find.

 

Same applies to Indices with subsections for technical analysis, systems and methods, general analysis without trade set ups.

 

The trading strategy section needs separate sections, to enable users to seek information easily.

 

Only pointing this out .

Hi  - thanks for the proposed ideas. I will certainly look into separating crypto given how popular it has been over the last few months, however this will probably take a couple of weeks to implement. I shall also look at the other points going forwards. Thanks for the suggestions on how to make the community better! 

 

If anyone else has any idea please let me know in the comments section below.

Hi James

 

I have created a sketch site to give you an idea for changes.The menus at the top relate to 

1)trading systems method

2)technical analysis

3)Fundamental analysis

4)Psychology

5)Ig academy

6)Weekly analysis

7)option trading

8)risk and money management

 

 

 

The menus in the middle relate to indices trading, there should be separate sections for forex, options, crypto, stocks, commodities and investments etc. If you look at indices menu , it is so clear and sticky.Some of these trading related sections don't require solutions and accept.Solutions and accept is for I G clients who have I G related query.

 

Traders are less likely to bother with trade ideas, this is due to uncertainty of performance in the future and lack of track records of idea providers.Trade ideas are less likely to generate profits for traders and IG in spread income, but give traders profitable systems , they are more likely to trade them , make profit and provide I G with consistent spread income.

 

Here is the sketch site.

Hi james 

 

 

Can you allow IG forum site to upload excel sheets.The only place to upload excel is to free wordpress sites.You consider this as spam, therefore this forum should be providing excel upload facilities.

 

 

Here are excel sheets with all the losses for this week and trades, excel with all trades here.

Hi James 

 

You need to give a separate section to PIA signals .This is a commercial enterprise in a forum for traders, where other traders are discussing their trades. It is not a forum to show  signals to generate  trading volume for I G.

 

Have it where the weekly signals are  posted on I G , I do visit them.

Totally disagree, this is a welcome addition to the forum, more personal and with deeper explanation of the thought process involved than the signals service alone can provide. 

 

Once again oilypro gets off on telling everyone what they need and what they should be doing.

Professional signals is subjective , professionals make money from trading (that is their profession) not from selling signals , technical anylysis and paid running educational sites. Most likely amateurs "those who can do, those who can't teach or sell road maps of the trading gold".

There is problem both for the image of the forum, one that I G uses it's forum to market it's products, which is not  true. The second issue is the signals are going to influence many members into trading these, as a result I G  may get more income from spreads.

 

Thoughts become reality, any thoughts they present will become reality.I saw some of their signals , they need improving .

No doubt some will get upset by the disruption to their long held view that everyone else is always wrong. I welcome the input  especially when it comes from someone with twice the experience and 10 times the education than that of the pretend professionals who would prefer a clear run at suckering the unsuspecting and not having their stall undermined by well thought out and demonstrably better contrary analysis.

Nobody said they should not post , they should be posted in separate section for IG's free  but paid by I G  signals service.  The weekly trades are not posted in the forum , which are similar.

At the moment we have at least 3 threads on Euro Yen, only one shows the trades.The rest are analysis and opinions.

Hi all. Thanks for the recommendation on which posts should / shouldn't be included in the general day to day postings. After an internal conversation I think for now we will not be taking any action, however sentiment has been noted. 

 

I believe that if other Community members are happy with it, along with the fact that each post is clearly noted as being a PIA post, doesn't promote or link to an external site and doesn't breach our terms of service or community guidelines, then it's ok. I hope it induces trade discussion ideas among members, educates from a TA perspective, and also increases awareness of a part of the IG platform.

Hi  (and  in a separate post) - crypto has now be moved out from regular FX. I won't be sub categorising these message boards until there is significantly more interaction. Let me know if you can see any posts I have missed on my manual process. 

 

Cheers

    • Financial Anarchy: one of the main fallacies of Bitcoin. You are that independent holding bitcoin that anytime you want to buy it or sell it have to go through an exchange using your full identity. With all sort of passports and ids checks. Let's not forget that the main goal of many bitcoiners is to amass as much of the correlated fiat currency as possible. With the romantic topic of becoming a blade runner paying in SHA-256 hashes to other elite individuals you watch how your virtual coins grow in value, that value that is established in that so-hated fiat currency. The happiness of a bitcoiner comes with the grow in price of that coin in the exchange. The more coins of the fiat currency they get from their bitcoins the happier they are. So it is all cyberpunk literature with a bit of TAZ philosophy, but bitcoin is no more than a very volatile "financial product", unfortunately , and since I am surrounded in IT departments by bitcoiners I am so tired of listening to people excusing themselves for choosing this overhyped movement over any other FX pair or metal. I understand that people want to get rich quickly and that is why they chose bitcoin, but they want to get rich by grabbing more and more of that fiat currency that they hold in the bank accounts. So let's be honest with ourselves, let's cut the rubbish and call it like it is: Greed on a very volatile market.  
    • The Fed wants to ban it or tax it. No central government likes crypto as its a form of financial anarchy. 
    • Very good point, Casey. They see Bitcoin and want to emulate it, or in the case of the Fed try and ban it. Bitcoin and Crypto have DEMAND. A Euro backed or $ backed crypto may not have them same demand, but will also be seen as currency. Crypto's lack of provenance (political and geographic) is a major USP. The market normally wins as governments know too well.
