So we may as well continue our trials with the Ftse, I've kept away from this and gbpusd for a long time since the brexit made them very difficult to read but never the less I need another live market to play on. 

To recap we are looking to the first hour of market open to try to identify the session high or low, from there we are using the 14 daily average of the average true range to set a target for the day. So it's a bit like the London Breakout Strategy but we are not looking identify the breakout but rather looking to identify it's base. The easiest way to keep score is to let IG do the leg work by simply placing a long call or put on demo.


LT bull, MT neutral, ST bear/neutral. ATR is currently 52 points.

So looking at the chart and rather annoyingly ftse seems to be already taking off to the upside, before the eur open even, but we'll stick to the rules that I'm making up as I go along for er ... reasons.

Currently we are looking at a session low of 7338 which is the value area low and a ATR target which coincides with R1.

An hour into the London session and Ftse is already at the proposed target set this morning so I may have to re-think my 'rules', any suggestions?  The reason for the 1 hour wait was that I've seen stats (somewhere, long ago, probably made up) that the session low or high is in within the first hour after open some 75% of the time. 

The base did look sound and the chart was short term very bullish well before the Eur open so perhaps should have just pulled the trigger on the off in such a situation.

Ftse looking to break up through 7369.

Yes, Ftse trying to follow Dax which is trying to push down through the large bear candle bottom put in at 9:30 yesterday evening but Dow not bothered at the mo and currently has support at today's point of control (red dash).

It's setting up similar to yesterday which saw dax and ftse turn around and follow dow up after the US open.

    • Centralized exchanges are often more popular than decentralized exchanges due to their user-friendly interfaces, ease of use, and protection against scams that can occur when interacting with various dApps on decentralized platforms. Navigating decentralized exchanges (DEXs) can be complex, which adds to the appeal of centralized alternatives. While DEXs offer several ways to earn passive income, such as staking, centralized exchanges have also introduced various opportunities for users to earn in a simpler and more straightforward manner. Some notable products that have proven efficient and beneficial for users include Launchpool, PoolX, Shark Fin, Range Sniper, Dual Investment, and others. Personally, I favor PoolX and Launchpool because they provide rewards on an hourly basis and the entry barrier is quite low for everyone to take advantage of. Shark Fin, Smart Trend, Range Sniper, and Dual Investment cater to investors with different investment goals and risk management preferences. One reason I particularly like Shark Fin is that it guarantees investors' capital while offering significant returns. All these products are available on the Bitget exchange, providing users with opportunities to earn passive income, especially in uncertain market conditions. I am interested in learning about other products you guys use to earn more crypto on centralized exchanges. Let's discuss
    • Hello IG Team @KoketsoIG Could you please provide a definitive update on the status of the TradingView integration? Many of us have been eagerly awaiting this feature for nearly two years, and it’s becoming increasingly frustrating to not have a clear timeline or concrete information. Many users have already expressed their concerns and the inconvenience of having to switch between brokers due to the lack of this integration. This delay has even caused some of us to move parts of our trading activities to other platforms that offer seamless TradingView integration. We understand that technical challenges can arise, but considering the significant time that has passed and the fact that smaller brokers have managed to implement this feature, it's perplexing why a company of IG’s stature is still unable to provide it. If there are specific technical hurdles or a projected timeline, we would appreciate transparency on these matters. The ability to trade directly from TradingView charts is a crucial feature for many of us, as it significantly enhances our trading efficiency and overall user experience. If this integration is not feasible in the near future, could you kindly inform us so we can make informed decisions about our trading strategies and platforms?
