Is any of this stuff actually important?

Nope ... they're still going to lose lots of money from day trading.

Why would that be? Check through the posts above, the morning direction calls have been accurate and the targets have been hit and not used any of the 'stuff' some seem to think should be in the Academy as though it was an essential prerequisite to trading. Does time scale or which indicators you use actually matter, seems more important to develope the skill to read multi time frame chart structure and understanding what the candles are saying than anything else. Price is always just looking for support or resistance, that's what a market is.

Using data from Sunday (rather than Friday) for the pivots as it was a reasonable sized candle and the market seems to be respecting the levels. Dow sitting atop the pivot and looks to have it well in control. Dax powered straight up to R1 on the London open, the next target is Friday's high and daily chart resistance level 11989 (orange) then round number and R2 12008.

Following on from this morning's post Dax  took out 11989 and just missed R2 before falling back to R1. Dow made a stab for R1 but missed though remains above the pivot, US market closed today so may be a quite afternoon ahead.

Only a complete numpty (or someone who knows which way they're going to go, like Donald Trump) trades the indices just now ... up and down and up and down ... why lose money?

If you can chart read and find the right levels you can see ahead, from this mornings post price pushed through R2 for Dax and R1 for Dow, but Dow has been held up at the H4 chart resistance level (blue dotted line) and as Dax is often well correlated to Dow (which is why I post them side by side) Dax is held up as well.

So we await to see if the buyers or sellers are victorious at 26365 Dow.

Some really filthy chop on the Dax yesterday just couldn't make it's mind while Dow just cruised on ahead, could be concern on UK leaving on a no-deal and/or over EU GDP figures today at 10am q/q 0.2%, y/y 1.1% expected but might be optimistic.

Both starting over the pivot this morning so after a test of support will be looking for resistance targets above then all stop for the US NFP at 1:30pm.

stay tuned, still digesting, there is an awful lot of data in the report so not unusual to be a mixed bag, the headline number was down but the average hourly earnings was a beat 0.4% when 0.3 expected, still no real move in either direction in Dow yet.

Looking to climb higher though may see a check of support first. The big problem for indices this week is the Fed rate decision Wednesday next week, the expectation is for a rate cut but will they really do that if the indices are making new highs, or to put it another way is the expectation of a cut enough to push into ATH's.

Both have pushed down through the pivot looking for support, the long, med and short term are all bullish so not anticipating a deep correction and there are plenty of levels where buyers might step in. As in the indices thread we may be due a short period of consolidation so thinking more range play than trend ride until the picture becomes clearer.

Dax continues to make steady gains Dow was more cautious yesterday but both start above the pivot on the London open having already tagged R1. As is often the case may check for support before attempting higher.

27000 is a psychological level for the Dow, so I expect to see some resistance at this level, Opportunity for a quick scalp/swing, if you guys are into these kind of things..

yes, around that level was the early July high resistance and then provided support once broken all through the rest of July.

Apropos of Trump making the Chinese 'play by the rules' ROFL, here is Sh!t for brains trampling over the Fed's supposed neutrality yet again.

If the Donald wasn't a billionaire he wouldn't get away with any of this.

Yes, lower the interest rates below zero, and refinance loans. That man makes me laugh..  ..out loud sometimes. The bank refused me when I asked for that deal.

ok that's interesting - a big rally into the close on Dow, a sure sign of real bull strength.

    • 1) It would be really helpful to be able to change a stop loss from normal to guaranteed stop in the online trading platform. Currently we can only do that on the mobile app which is ridiculous because the online trading platform should be having more features than the mobile app. 2) Allow us to set limit (take profit) for partial position size. Example if I buy 5 contracts of AUD/USD at 0.7150. I would like the option to be able to set take profit for 3 contracts at 0.7170 and 2 contracts at 0.7190.   
    • Hi Folks, The platform advertises that you need to place three or more trades in the previous month to avail of the free trading on US stocks (no $15 commission) for the subsequent month. However, even with that commission fee gone you're going to have to pay IG for the currency conversion each time. You're going back and forth between buying and selling, GBP to USD to GBP ...this will equate to a lot of money. So, you've realised the above and to avoid this really ridiculous and expensive merry-go-round you turn on multi-currency feature, right? In your head you think:   "I want to exclusively trade US stocks, I've waited one month (you'd have rathered to just pay IG and not need to wait), made more than three trades on that currency merry-go-round, I am happy to pay the reasonable quarterly fee to IG from here on in and keep the account as USD while availing of their most advertised feature, the commission free trading on US stock market". The new month arrives and you can have a great time trading on the US stock market with your dollar that doesn't keep eating away at any trade profits with each buy and sell. However, the next month arrives and menacing commission fee is back! But you traded at least three times last month, what gives? Ah! But you used the multicurrency feature, and this means on the subsequent month you will not be eligible for commission free trading. You're back to square one. Your choice is to either pay IG the fee for every conversion in every trade or prevent this and keep the respective currency but also you must pay IG a commission.    Anyone else experience this? I'm hoping I'm completely wrong, but contacting the helpdesk seems to confirm this ...
    • IG need to provide a stock screener, live scanner for volume/price movement, pre-market data,  and rapid execution for private traders and rebate fees for trading view as they do for PRT, with traders who trade frequently. One can be ambitious and ask IG to provide a free platform like thinkorswim as Ameritrade does with current news stream  - again a free rebate for access to Benziga or similar with rebates linked to the amount of trades.  The money spent on IG TV perhaps can be spent somewhere else towards provision of some free resources to private traders/investors.  The IG tv is a serious issue - do IG really think that IG TV add any value?  Access to financial publications/sites might be a better thing.  The effort of IG to provide its own academy, advice etc is and always will probably a poor quality duplication.  Please learn/borrow from American brokers and now that their commission charges are Zero.  PRT - Can that be downloadable.  The web based form just slows everything down and very clunky and the charts are not elegant at all.  They have a community and they do develop or help develop some strategies. We do not want to lose them. But a live screener /scanner please.  I just realised that I do not even know if IF IT team even reads these comments or prioritise any of the suggestions. Please get rid of your IG TV investment, it is very annoying. And yes VWAP/anchored VWAP please on the charts. Give the private investors some of the rebates too. Is Charlotte, finally providing our redemption by talking these to the right eyes and ears! Overall, IG really is not that bad given others at least for UK investors. Perhaps just a less spread and less of that dreaded, sudden declaration that this stock is only for close and you can not open new position. I think that and the liquidity  excuse is lame unless IG is beholden to a particular market maker or IG somehow gets it in a very large position by itself.
