Hi, min position size should be  0.1 as is in the link below, is there any message pop up?

Yes it says "off quotes", further info I am trading from my mobile phone on my mt4 account and I opened a 0.10 post on as well as 0.50 and it still gives me an off quote message

ok, that message usually refers to a connection problem;

check your mobile connection,

also check the mt4 connection rate and number of dropouts (see  pic 1 bottom right corner of mt4), the dropouts number should be only around 2 (the number after the / ) and the rate should be high (thousands).

Check the IG server, in mt4 'File' > 'Open an account' pic 2

also you can click on the connection rate box and choose a different data center.

Let us know how you got on.

not sure, your currency trades must have been on demo as the live account only goes as low as 0.1 for both currencies and indices so I still think you need to look at the live feed connection.

    • yes stops are a different story, though I might use prior swing levels for targets I prefer stops to be closer to the entry but appreciate their are many schools of thought. Some like very wide stops because getting direction right is easier than getting the exact entry place right so a wide stop provides leeway. I prefer to just get out early if price turns against and just keep looking, sometimes it takes a couple of bites before getting it right. Probably depends on how much time you have to keep watching the chart.
    • I tried fundamental analysis for years and its was pointless from a trading perspective (well for me anyway). long term investment sure . It takes ages and market just doesn't do what it says on the tin.  I see that many pro traders just focus on a few stocks for their whole career, maybe that's the way to go. Hard to know  Although it seems that everything is equally difficult. I never try FX as I know diddlysquat about that.     I have given up reading books, sick to death of those cherry picked charts and all the fluff like "trade at the start of trend" How the *** are you supposed to know with any degree confidence  that a trend is starting ? The $64,000 question which they all skip over.  Also the other usual  one is that "markets only trend of 20% of time". I could never understand that. Change the time frame and you can find trends  everywhere. 
    • Ha yes, yesterday's S&P candle looks a bit different from when I last looked last night. Dow bull flag on yesterday's high. FTSE and S&P daily. Dax and Dow H1 charts;
