There's perfect money-losing market behaviour for you.  At least six fake breakouts, three on either side.  Enjoy losing money when betting either way :D

FTSE 100 hammers the brakes, comes screeching to a halt and does a massive 180 turn before zooming off in the direction it came from!  (Phew, I wonder if it left skidmarks ...)

Most breakouts of a range fail, most reversals of a trend fail.

Holy smokes, the S&P 500 is back above 3300.  I sold a September 3300 call option a while ago thinking there was no chance of it making money.  Crikes! Just goes to show you should hold on to your options till the bitter end.1317753698_US500_20200811_11_57.thumb.png.c5ea11d20aab3d5733b5a2893abbec54.png

God **** I don't understand these markets 

Headline news British economy suffered record collapse in the second quarter

FTSE rises fast from open¬† and I drop 500 in about 25 minutes!¬†¬†ūüėĖ

Looks like one of the biggest bullish 30min candles in weeks. 

That's it I am staying away from the 'Open', don't know diddlysquat about it

the market is not the economy, the companies that make up the ftse are big internationals and have their biggest market in the US so ftse and dax will follow the US indices which are an expression of future confidence in the US economy and so the US consumer. The UK market is not that important to them.

after I posted that I check the 250, that's much more UK focused I'd imagine. That gapped down

yes, smaller companies. also you are right to avoid the open when there is always turmoil with big volumes going through in both directions, rather wait for things to settle and one way direction to the next level is established.

With higher time frames and looser stops you're less beholden to 'events', this is evidenced by backtesting using a purely mechanical approach and simply following the signals.  Responding to events is a mug's game anyway because there will always be 'unexpected' announcements...

thanks dude, problem is that some news events are quick wins like HERTZ EasyJet,  but Indices I find it difficult to work out

lol I'm the opposite and find it far harder to trade individual stocks.  

Mainly because of the constant gapping.

It has been following the European indices higher, but with a 400 point rise after its close I think some buyers may be setting themselves up for a disappointment.

    • Is this the right place to leave feedback to the tech team? to others in the community, do you know what I am talking about?
    • I have tried to clarify the US share dealing charges with a live chat operative, and they were unable to communicate in a meaningful way. I would like to confirm that, as long as you trade at least 3 times in any given month, that you will only pay charges for the first month. In other words, free US share dealing is on a rolling monthly basis¬†provided you continue to make at least 3 trades every month. Is this correct? The operative was saying that even if you trade at least 3 times every month, that only every alternate month would allow free commission. She also said this was clearly stated on the fees page, which is most definitely not the case. In addition, are the quarterly fees definitely waived if you place these 3 trades within a quarter? Thanks
