Closing only: Market unavailable to open - Rapeseed

Question

Hi all,

 

I get messages now and then particularly on commodities,  'Closing only: Market unavailable to open'. How do I know when they will reopen?

 

Thanks,

 

Justin

Hey - so some markets such as rapeseed are not very liquid, and further more have a very small (if any) interest from our client base. For this reason we are looking to set to closing only and remove. Which markets are you looking at trading and what sort of size and I will be able to look into the specifics of each for you.

Thanks James, I am trying to trade all commodities including rapeseed. For the moment only at minimum stakes. I'll juts take each market as it comes.

    • For me your stop is large, I use close to the minimum for the market. But I think same applies. I think basically I like tight stops because you can't lose too much but when you win hopefully you win big relative to that. I've been using a 4:1 reward/risk ratio for example.  When I started out I thought the likelihood of pulling this off given how close the stop was to entry was unlikely but actually it does happen fairly often. The issue I have is that I average a win every 4 trades so essentially make nothing in the end but that's just my mean, I have a massive standard deviation that I need to get way down i.e. increase win rate if possible before this is useful. So for me I think I need better timing signals to enter and I enter too readily without really using indicators to help me. To be honest though what I've found which might be obvious to most is that if the market trends for a period of time it's much easier to make money. When it isn't it's very difficult, the problem is you often don't know when it's not trending to a large enough degree until you're in it and then you need to know to take some time and return later. Like sailing with a strong wind and then all of a sudden it's doldrums.
