Hi - I have had a look at your account and can see that you have a Limited Risk account. This means that unfortunately you can't sell to open options trades as the risks are theoretically unlimited. You can still buy puts and calls however, so please select that option and you should see the buy / sell buttons become clickable.

Hi - thanks for the reply. When was the last time you logged out and back in? I have just checked and we only have the 2450 Call and Put online at the moment, not the 2425. Please try the log out process, or by checking if you can on the 2450.

Thanks for the reply.

I logged out today 4 times.

I checked 2450, 2500 and different strikes. Also I checked other tools, the situation is the same, the buttons are not active :(

Hi ,

 

From the screenshot it looks like  is correct, it is a connection issue or possibly a firewall problem. The Pull data is a type of offline mode that ProRealTime switches to if connection is lost to the ProRealTime server, if connected the Pull data should display as Push+. 

 

You can try this link to configure your firewall, it may resolve the problem.

 

Configure Firewall

 

Thanks

Anton

    • I think those swings were tradeable with a reduced position size on the Nikkei which tends to respect weekly pivots during European and American trading hours.
    • @dmedin, I don't know the answer but there may be others on the IG Community that are more knowledgable than me or even use EWT both successfully and are hugely profitable applying it. They may be aware of certain assets where the probabilities of using EWT are in their favour due to confirmed historical evidence. There may well be evidence that certain assets adhere to EWT more than others on a historical basis. Of course that does not guarantee that the assets will do so in the future but it just increases the odds and the likelihood of it occurring again.  Just because I don't have the knowledge or evidence does not mean such assets do not exist where the application of EWT would be greatly increase your chances of successful and profitable trades. I personally do not use or apply EWT to my trading and it has not hindered me. I would be interested in knowing which assets adhere to EWT more than others and what the percentages are. For example are there any assets which adhere to EWT historically over 70%? Let us put Natural Gas to one side for the moment as I personally think due to the extreme volatility you would have to be a supreme EWT technician to be able to consistently make profitable trades on Natural Gas using EWT. If you put NG to one side then are there any other assets which say adhere to EWT historically from say 50% - 70% of the time? I do not know the answer but if anyone does know then it would be very interesting and helpful to the IG Community, especially for those who are genuinely interested in EWT and applying it to their trading.  Also for those assets which say do adhere to EWT over 50% of the time how does a trader know that it will so on the next trend, next move up or down, etc? How does one establish apart from a failed trade after the event on whether the asset is going to adhere to EWT?
