  1. All of my Stop Orders have been cancelled on my ISA account by IG before market opening and I cannot reinstate them. when I confirm the order I recieve a message "The market you have requested is no longer available online". The order is on WPP they have a market cap of £10bil, so not a small AIM company!

  2. hahahaha Spanish is your mother tongue yet you had to look through trying to match the figures in the pictures FFS. You really are a total spoon. 'Unlucky to have you around'?? but you always run away and hide after pretending the thread contains nothing but memes, I can see why now, you can't actually read scientific data no matter what language it in hahahaha. Anyway, here is the original poster (who can actually speak Spanish). The whole thread is very interesting, there's also some great stuff on how masks have been shown to increase

  4. Glad to see the torch of conspiracy burning bright on this forum. Can only speak from a personal and local perspective regarding the virus. I can tell you that the hospital admissions related to Covid in our local hospital has gone from negligible (9 patients on December 3rd) to 19 less than a week later to 60 a week after that to over 200 last week. Numbers are available on the NHS website. I have no other information as I haven't seen my friend since we went into Tier 4, who works in admissions at the hospital for confirmation of said numbers. I occasionally text him but he prefers face to

  5. Hi, on third party platforms (tradingview, prorealtime) you can change the time zone and thereby the candle close to any you want but a broker's has a fixed time zone and candle close which is based on the hours their markets are open.

  6. Hi all, Might anyone know what I can't place any kind of limit order on AML.L, a FTSE 250 company? I could yesterday, just not today, can't work out what's changed. "The market you have requested is no longer available online" for both 'day' and 'good til cancelled' quotes. Edit, this is not CFD/spreadbetting, it's in my ISA when trying to buy real shares. Thanks

  9. Hi, No you can only Buy and Sell shares using the Share Dealing platform. you cannot Demo Share Dealing, However, I assure you, it's the same as CFD or Spread Betting, except it costs you to Buy and Sell but the Spreads are Tighter. I Trade Shares now instead of Spread Betting. The Spreads on Small Cap stock made it impossible to Day Trade. Of course there are downsides such as Tax, but you gotta make a profit first!

  10. I wouldn't say it is all fake, the PCR test worked fine when it was only used on symptomatic people but fell apart (as they should have known it would) when used for mass testing of asymptomatic people. That, along with the suppression of other treatments that have been shown to be affective, as well as the pretence that there is no longer any such thing as herd immunity has meant a forced wait for vaccines. The 2 biggest winners as a result are big govt taking unprecedented powers and big pharma taking unprecedented profits. The WHO have shown themselves to be in China's pocket

This thread is to help those that are struggling to WIN and to BEAT the markets, it will also help you to look at the markets differently and understand what is going on from a technical analysis point of view Now this WON'T be what you're used to - I don't use much TA that you find inside of all the trading books Let's get a few things cleared up right now: I'm a Professional Trader - I trade my own money for a living - I prefer to trade daily charts as I don't need to be stuck glued to a screen all day I've done it for over 10 years, yes I've had bad periods, we all do,

  13. Just come across all your posts THT, very insightful thanks. If nothing else for me it's showed me I'm out of my depth and don't yet understand markets. Perhaps this will encourage me to actually learn from others and not to think I know what I'm doing as clearly I don't. The fact you have such tight stops amazes me but goes to show is possible when you read the markets correctly. Trading is a mad world from the outside looking in.

  15. Hey @ramblers926, The platforms are similar however there are differences. You can have a price from the market maker, a limit order, a stop order or a market order. If you pick a limit, stop or market order you can choose the expiration date: We don't have a demo for an ISA account as it's too hard to replicate in a demo environment. You can open a live non-leveraged account though with no obligation to fund if you want to see the features. With ISAs we have a £24 quarterly fee. If you trade any commission you pay will be deducted from the

  16. and my 2 mates said it was just like a normal flu 🤔 anyway, German data says you have a only 5 out of 10,000 chance of dying of Covid if you are under 70 years of age. 2 questions, how would you ever know if the vaccine was effective, 4 deaths every 10,000? the numbers are so small as to be statistically insignificant. And what about the very real possibility the vaccine will have a lower survival rate than the disease? 🤔

  17. as usual there is no attempt to contradict the ton of govt data and published research material that shows that these measures simply do not work, best just to pretend it's not there and so keep your bbc bias intact.

The big boys promote stuff to the public and are most likely the professionals providing the supply so be careful of that fact - Even old Warren Buffett bigged up Silver years ago whilst he was dumping his holding! I'm not a fundamental Investor - Here's my thoughts from a slightly differing angle that may help you: EVERY market works out to cycles, I can't work out Golds cycles because it was only freely traded since 1970's and I need decades of price data to accurately pick out the dominant cycles, BUT...... I do have the stock market and UK Bank of England Base Rate price dat

  21. The data is there, prove it wrong, no one gives a s**t about you 'think might' be the case. 1/ Yes I know the PCR produces false +ves, I've been providing the data to prove it for months. 2/ Yes I know, I've been providing the data to back that up. 3/ wrong, the ICU data is there, prove it wrong (population increase adjusted). Population adjusted the flu death spikes of 1999 and 2000 were higher than for covid-19 so covid is really just a bad flu. People are dying daily because that's what happens every day (1,500). The numbers for this winter excess deaths is normal.

  22. It's not science if it can't be proved wrong if it is wrong. That's how it works. YOU linked the weekly death stats from ONS for 2020, the first chart uses the weekly stats from ONS for 2020. Here's a tip, find the correct data set from the different sets list in the spreadsheet you already have in front of you and check that the data points match/or not on the chart. (weekly death report). FFS how hard can that be??? Do the same for the ONS 2019 data. That's it. But no, pushing to get cancelled what you don't like the sound of is much easier. ABSOLUTELY ****

  23. I don't give a **** what you want, this may come as a shock but it's not my job to do your searching for you, if you are disputing the data look it up for yourself and prove it, not really that difficult, but it looks fine to me judged on what I know so am happy to stand by it until/if it is actually is disproven. it's easy enough for someone to sit on their @rse and just keep pointing the finger over and over but that's not really how things work.

  25. increase in covid labelled cases were not leading to increased hospital admissions and deaths, as stated previously they did in the first wave but not this second (fake) wave. The current increase happens every year at this time and the numbers are in line with previous years so blatantly nothing to do with covid, if it was related to covid cases the numbers would above the average not below it. The chart did indeed dispel the fake news that covid patients were overwhelming ICU, they just weren't. I gave you feedback, your own linked data showed you were wrong in your conclusions.

  26. This is just admissions via A&E. Most hospital admissions do not come via A&E. In the same report COVID-19 admissions towards end of Dec. via A&E are approx. 300 per day https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/948470/EDSSSBulletin2020wk52.pdf However, overall hospital admission for COVID-19 around the same time are around 3000 per day: https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/details/healthcare Therefore A&E admissions are accounting for only 10% of COVID-19 total hospital admissions. It is incorrect t

  30. FOLLOW THE MONEY List of SAGE members with their fingers in the pie. Spoiler Alert: it's practically all of them. Pathologists recently pointed out that during the first wave in April Deaths closely mirrored Cases but that relationship completely broke down after the introduction of mass testing asymptomatics. It's unlikely Drs are suddenly misdiagnosing Deaths so the problem must lie with the Cases data. The medical 'experts' in SAGE must be aware of the history of the PCR test and the ease with which it has triggered pseudo epidemics in the past (see NYT article li

However you can find them online on your account via a web browser and perform the following sequence: Live Accounts -> Statements -> Trading Statements -> Annual -> 2020 Then downloading the 2020 gives the consolidated tax certificate for 2019-2020. Hope this helps, Regards jawdrops

  33. take a look at the Prorealcode website, It's a page dedicated to building indicators and screeners for Prorealtime. It's certainly more advanced then the generic screener that Tradingview offer.

  34. Thanks THT, I'm looking for a scan that scans the whole stock market (for example a crossover on any FTSE100 company on 5 min chart), rather than scans what you set up to scan on your system - I will be there til next year doing that. Does ProRealTime allow for this generic type searching / scanning / screening?

  39. HI UG support, I have an Austrlian IG share account, and like to participate in the TALGA ASX:TLG share purchase plan as I own Talga's share in my share account with IG. It looks like I have to signup with In Talga's registry Automic: https://investor.automic.com.au/#/signup in order to purchase the share. It is however asking me for the HIN, which i understand IG operates under a Custody model, so I am not able to provide the HIN. So how can I participate in TALGA's Share Purchae Plan? Thank You

  40. I wonder as other forex provider provide your the option select leverage of your choice, like. 1:200, 1:300, 1:400, 1:1000 etc. Is there any option within the IG Markets where an investor can change the leverage ratio of his/her choice.

  42. @shardymo Not sure if you got this resolved in the end but just wanted to mention - I had a similar question/problem just now. ISA share dealing accounts don't have an "order" button in the ticket and I was trying to submit an out-of-hours limit order on the "deal" tab which kept failing with a "the exchange is currently unavailable" message. Turns out it was because I was using a GBP value amount; the issue resolves when I use a number of shares instead - and the order goes through and shows in working orders.

I was spread betting in the UK which is tax free and I wish to continue trading over here. I have both a UK and a Spanish bank account and I wondered if I can keep spread betting with my money being paid into my UK account or if I have to set up a CFD account and start paying tax out here in Spain. Please let me know the best way to proceed.
