Advertising links on IG forum +scams on forums

I was banned, as a customer of IG with a trading account going over many years.I have never sold anything on forums, I never will.Advertising on I G forums is prohibited, to pass this rule, links are posted to sites, under the disguise of teaching/educating /I G customers.At the site linked on I G forum, paid education and courses is being offered to I G customers.Many I G customers are highly intelligent people, they are observing charlatan behaviour on the forum, it is important these links to other paid sites are not posted here.


Forums are marketing sites,where everyone gathers to market their waes,directly or indirectly, subliminally and intentionally to lead I G  clients to their own forum  sites, where rebates are offered to the poster of the links.


I am now going  to post the posts where the forum is being misused, for indirectly advertising sites that sell education,trading courses  and other merchandise.Like minded traders don't come to IG forum,to have their time wasted by links to other sites selling education etc.If a poster can not post  any original stuff from their own charts, they should refrain from from copying and pasting .copyright material from other sites, under the pretence of educating IG customers.I G customers like myself do not to visit these links and only to find an educational course being offered, for a price..


I post my own original charts and do not post links to internet marketeers.I develop my own EAS, I post my own charts and their performance.


Casey has been posting links to many paid sites, where money is being asked for services, it constitutes advertising for rebates or  direct benefits. We don't know who owns these sites, if it is Casey or his friends, we will never tell.I G do not want a situation, where a client is scammed on these sites, as a result of these links posted.I have many cases, where clients have had thousands of dollars lost on internet scammers and forums scamming.


All the forums have had their own scams.Ig customers should be careful of internet scammers.


Lots of talk over at forex factory that the famous Jacko (mentor/trainer and trader) has run off with several 100 thousand in a fund he established from loyal ff.com followers...(shades of T2W's very own wasp?) 
Here are Casey's links to sites, in fact a search history of Casey's post will show  over a hundred links to advertising other  sites.
Cutting and pasting content is also illegal, it may breach copyrights.
We have seen many more of these links,there are hundreds of them, these are contravening the I G community guidelines for advertising.
It is not that difficult to post your own charts, explaining divergences, or in work case post links to Stockcharts, the charts and all the education is provided free, without selling any education.
In this search on stock charts , a trader can get all the knowledge for free.
In casey's case it is to advertise his own sites
It does not take a lot to post divergences on a chart as follows, rather advertise on I G forum.This has been reported to IG moderators.Customers do not want to come to this forum,  to read links posted to advertise to u.s.Subliminal advertising is advertising.

Here is an example of your direct advertising in PM's on the forum, your claim of innocence is false.


Then to say that the greater crime is to post links to genuine free educational material that may contain an ad for some of the author's other services is astonishing.


Banned again (now 8 out of 9 forums and counting), you should have a think about what it is you are doing wrong instead of just blaming others.

I was banned by IG for for 2 days but what about the hundreds of posts and links, that you have been posting on this forum?These are direct advertising,it constitutes a breach of service of the forum.


What about hundreds of posts with links to the same sites, your friend's sites?

I have never sold anything or advertised any sites,I have never approached any IG customer for selling any products to I G customers.I was approaching an internet marketer, to hire an internet marketer, somebody who is good at internet marketing.


We have had a recent report that you have tried to push goods or services via private message. Please be aware this is a breach of our ToS and therefore we will be banning your account for a period of 2 days. After this time your account on Community will be active again.

The moderators have got it wrong.I never offered any EAS for sale.I was looking for internet marketers.


Advertising on IG forums  is still an offence.

This sets a precedent, under educational pretence, to post links to the same sites.These can be owned directly or indirectly by poster.

    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
    • Investing in stocks can be a great way to grow your wealth over time. However, there are different approaches that investors can take when choosing which stocks to buy. Two of the most popular approaches are growth investing and value investing. Growth Investing Growth investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are expected to grow at a faster rate than the overall market. These companies are often in industries that are growing quickly, such as technology or healthcare. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies will be able to generate higher profits in the future, which will lead to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of growth investing is that it can potentially provide higher returns than the overall market. However, it is also riskier than other investment strategies, as these companies often have higher valuations and more volatile stock prices. Value Investing Value investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are undervalued by the market. These companies may be in industries that are out of favour or have recently experienced challenges, but they have strong fundamentals and a history of profitability. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies are undervalued and that their true value will be recognized in the future, leading to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of value investing is that it can potentially provide lower risk than growth investing. However, it may also provide lower returns in the long run, as these companies may not have the same growth potential as companies in the growth investing category. Comparing Growth and Value Investing Growth and value investing are two different approaches to stock investing, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Growth investing can potentially provide higher returns but is riskier, while value investing can provide lower risk but potentially lower returns. An investor may choose one approach or a combination of both. A portfolio that contains a mix of growth and value stocks can provide a balance of potential returns and risk. Conclusion Both growth investing and value investing can be effective ways to invest in stocks. The key is to understand the potential risks and rewards of each approach and to choose the one that aligns with your investment goals and risk tolerance. Analyst Peter Mathers TradingLounge™ 
    • I am a beginner, and I must say, there are a lot of rules to the trading game that one must abide by if they want to be successful.   Here, the writer mentions several basic rules for day vs swing trading.  However, I find that often times, the reasoning for these rules is not as  obvious for a beginner as it may be for an expert.   The 'why' factor if I may. For example, why must you have a large capital to trade with as a day trader? Because your positions must be large so that a small change in price will be augmented and turned into a large profit. Also, with such high risk, the margin will be specially high, given the trader is taking up large positions at a time.  Without a large amount of capital, positions may be forced to close due to funds being below margin requirements.  When this happens, you can expect to lose tons of cash, fast.  I learned the hard way. All the best, David Franco
