JESS ........TWO BARKS FOR BUY     ONE BARK FOR SELL   ???

That is the 50% retrace for  the Dow and S&P. 

It's the opposite, I don't think I'm cut out for day trading.  I still would have been better off keeping a position open from Christmas, even now.  I zoomed out to the day chart and the overall pictu

I thought you were successful at trading short time frames.

For me multiple time frame analysis is more of a solid approach than hopping from one “indicator” to another. I am most profitable scaling in and out of a swing trade.

Good for you?

Are you just showing off here then?  Because I haven't seen you post anything useful?  Unless you think a daily chart with a two-hundred moving average is useful in some way?

Folks, IG have 250,000 clients and two people - Andrew and I think the wee diminutive Sw3dish **** - have posted something indicating that they've made some money recently.

That's a potential two out of 250,000 who aren't losing money.

Please, feel free to chime in and share your success story (you don't have to share your methods).

The French index dropped 0.43% between posting the first and second charts and the last daily profit figure in the trade analytics was entirely from scaling out of a long and a short on the Dax.

I also had a >1 return at one point this year in my trade analytics.

Come back and show me a >1 return over a period of five years or more and I'll be impressed.

The arrow shows where you should have entered the trade, but if you're asleep or doing something else - tough t!ts.  What you going to do about it, except sit out the entire move?  Another reason why buy and hold is simpler and more effective :)

    • Hi   I had 2 long positions that were opened. I did not put any order to close them ie I was just leaving them opened without stop loss any the profit target . But suddenly they were closed this morning? Why?
    • Yes - there was a consolidation action of 1 for 1500 of these securities : https://www.sharesmagazine.co.uk/news/market/LSE20210504170819_3963598/GraniteShares-3STS-Reverse-split-Consolidation I've been on chat and on the phone to IG - they've done the consolidation, but still not updated the correct prices, which should of course also rise by ~1,500 on a ceteris paribus basis (all things the same). At the time of writing this, TSLA has dropped a further 2.4% today, so these securities ought to have risen ~ 7.2% (3x short TSLA) on the day.  The IG person I spoke with this evening promised me he would check with the relevant team and revert. My call was very late in the day (after 6pm) so I trust that they will have this resolved in the morning. If not, I do suggest calling again. 
    • Hey all,  Unlike some other brokers IG do not trade against clients and don't benefit when our clients lose. We hedge the same way as the majority of our clients (so if 60% were long and 40% were short we would hedge those 20% long that aren't covered).  We have no benefit when traders lose. We make money from spread and commission so if anything we want out traders to win so they will continue trading with us.  Unfortunately I can't be account specific and if you believe something is wrong on your account please reach out to us as I can't assist with this.  If you have any questions on this please let me know by quoting my response.  All the best,  Charlotte
