    Potentially massive resistance zone has been reached on the Dow, the area between 28,000 - 28,500. If it breaks, then we should see the price move up towards 30,000, but if it holds and falls, then for me this could be the top. I think the remainder of November will give us the answer. Very critical period.

    I have released a project that will most likely be updated once or twice a day, The updates are self explanatory, A list of the most shorted stocks by Institutional Investors in the UK. Split up into how many institutional investors are short on a stock and by the volume and an amalgamated list of of most shorted stocks. https://github.com/tg12/most_shorted_stocks Again this is a series of my own projects. Not affiliated by IG and no guarantees etc. Feedback and comments welcome. Hope you enjoy it.

    Here's a couple of great ones recently, the good old triangle. I traded some of these signals. You can set a position to go short when it drops beneath the lower line and have a stop just above in case it's a 'fake'. If you're really clever you can trade the bounce back up too, and then the drop back down again.

    @Kodiak, That means you must look at your stop loss strategy. If you are trading a strong trend (volatility occurs in all trading assets) and if your stop loss is too tight and you keep on getting stopped out then the winner is the broker not you. If you have selected the correct trend which is strong and you are trading with the trend then you must have an effective stop loss strategy. You may want to revisit your risk management and have a look at position size, how much you are willing to risk on each trade based on your risk tolerance and try and come up with a more effective stop loss mechanism that eliminates this issue but at the same time does not increase your overall losses in your trading account. I must make it clear that it is about trading the strongest trends (which tend to be bubbles, hype, frenzy, speculation) etc. I love those types of trends and one must not fear them but embrace them. They are the trends that will make the biggest profits. The weaker the trend you trade the harder it is to have a sound stop loss strategy as volatility will stop you out. It is how your trading system deals with volatility which will be key.

    I think it would be a good idea to make the IG Labs forum (which is pretty dead) an underforum of this forum. Maybe this will ignite a little more activity in the IG Labs section (this was already discussed in another thread but I thought it is worth mentioning here).

    Hey @JoceHockings @blobface (great name) and @PandaFace I have just had a word with our Corp Actions team on this and they have confirmed it is a relatively complex and difficult question to answer. Each private company has a number of different rules and regulations which are relatively unique to each one - it's very tough to speculate on these things prior to the official 'documentation' coming out. They are just looking into the specifics of this and when I have a firmer understanding I'll of course post back here. One thing which is worth noting is that generally for a stock to be ISA eligible requires that it is traded on a centrally located exchange. Privatisation would have an impact on this, and therefore it may not be possible to contain within the ISA wrapper. On a personal note, and this is purely my opinion, this could just be Musk shooting from the hip. Granted he has done this before (anyone remember the Boring Company tweets?) but still... Again, i'll update accordingly. Apologies for no real clarity in this answer at present.

    The one thing I have realised is that a lot of people are trying to run before they can walk. People are trying to be successful at trading when they have not become successful at investing. For me being a successful and profitable investor by creating long term wealth is the sound foundation that can lead to into trading or other forms of investing. I am going to use this thread to begin discussing my journey as an investor and the good things I did and the bad things or mistakes I made along the way. I have nothing to hide and I want to share real life examples for the IG Community. Of course I hope you can appreciate that I will not disclose monetary amounts or the valuation of my investment portfolio and this is private but will be open and transparent. I will use 'clear and plain' English and where any jargon or complex words or phrases are used then I will try and explain them in a simple manner for the IG Community. @dmedin, I have tagged you into this as you have inspired me to create this thread. Please bear with me and when I have some time I shall commence with Part 1 below. Part 1: Introduction to Creating Long Term Wealth by Investing - Coming Soon

    Yes because they want you to keep your money invested. That is how they make money so they have a vested interest in punters keeping their money in. Yes in a bull market but as soon as things turn nasty (1929 nasty) that strategy fails spectacularly. Unless you believe it will never happen again...? It took 30 years for the stock markets to regain the 1929 highs.

    Not sure what you mean? Looks more like the lower channel line has held and we have a small rally off it so far. Of course it could reverse and breakthrough the lower channel line but that is a perfectly legitimate resolution to a wedge consolidation. Chartists will trade which ever breakout occurs (up or down), just have to watch out for the all to frequent these days fakeouts, which many do attribute to algos.

    Hi everyone, so, those of you following my FTSE - Daily Trades thread may know, I'm looking for new strategies to tackle the market. Was starting to think about this today and made a few thoughts. First one I came up with in the process is the following and utilises 'Andrew's Pitchfork' a rather odd name for a simple principle. Thought Process I was going back to the basics and starting to think about the fundamentals of trading: Buy low and sell high. Or go short high, and buy back low later. So the key of my new strategy has to somewhat depended on these fundamental trading principles. Next I was thinking, looking at a chart, in what region can the price considered to be "low" and in what region would I consider it to be "high". I was looking at a 5min chart and looking at the whole day. I was drawing one line at the low of day, one line at the high of day, those are obviously the extremes where everyone can agree prices are low / high. Then I draw a line right in the middle between the two, where the price is neither high nor low. Then I draw a line at 25% and one at 75% and said, if the price is between the low of day (0%) and 25%, I consider the price to be low. If the price is between 75% and high of day (100%) I consider the price to be high. In between (25%-75%), it's neither high nor low. If I'd somehow manage to always buy in the low range and sell in the high range (or go short vice versa), then this could be a decent strategy. The next problem I was facing is, I've done this analysis on the previous day, where we know high and low of day. How can this strategy work out for future price movements, where high and low of day are unknown. Andrew's Pitchfork This is where the Pitchfork comes in. The assumption I'm making is that if I extrapolate the 4 required levels (low of day, high of day, 25% and 75%) from the previous day to the following day, the strategy still works. This is because more often than not, prices move up and down around a certain level, without breaking away from it and moving onto the next level. (This obviously has to be proven with data - more to that later) The way the pitchfork works is exactly how the 4 required levels are drawn up. The pitchfork is defined over 3 points: High, Low and Mid-point. It then draws 5 levels on the chart: High (100%), 75%, Mid (50%), 25%, Low (0%) So how does it work The way I imagine it to work is the following: 1) Identify previous day's high and low 2) Draw the pitchfork in the chart with aligning its high and lows on the daily high and low. The mid point is exactly in the middle of daily high and low. This draws a horizontal pitchfork in the chart. 3) When the price of the asset falls below 25%, place a buy stop order at the 25% level. Once the price rises again and breaks through that level, the order gets executed. (vice versa with shorting above the 75% level) 4) Stop Loss is right below (size of the spread) the low of the pitchfork. Target is somewhere above 50%-75%. You have at least a 1:1 risk-to-reward ratio. Need to calculate target level by asset based on historic patterns. Does it work? Don't know yet. So far I've manually painted a few of those pitchforks in the chart for the past couple of days on FTSE100, NASDAQ, CL and NG and it seems it works more often than it doesn't. Cases where it clearly doesn't work is when there's a strong move to either direction, aka price breaks-out and moves to a different level than it was the day before. Interestingly when this happens, the strategy wouldn't necessarily always result in a loss, but sometimes the entry conditions would never be triggered in the first place. E.g. if we start the day already in the high region (above 75%) and then never fall below it - no order triggered on that day. On the negative side, huge breakout opportunities are missed with this strategy, so worth looking into a complementary strategy which works specifically for break-outs. Next steps Next, I'm trying to backtest the strategy. Will need to pull a whole lot of data and analyse. Hope to have that done over the weekend. Will update the thread accordingly. Data I'm trying to get: Win ratio, Where's the optimum take profit level, Time of day where this usually plays out (my idea is to hook this in with the ATR analysis I've done and trade this pattern at times of high ATR, aka FTSE, DAX in the morning, NASDAQ, NG, CL in the afternoon) First success First successful example trade taken this afternoon on CL. You see nicely how the pitchfork is drawn on the chart and is derived by the high and low of the previous day. At 14.30 today the price dipped below the 25% level. I set the buy stop order at the 25% level, which got triggered at 14.35. The price afterwards makes a sweep move up to the 50% level, where my limit sell order gets triggered at 15.15. It would've been possible to play it up until the 75% level, but wanted to be safe, without having the data yet. Could've been luck - who knows. What do you think of this approach?

    @dmedin, My IG app on my iPhone seems to be working but the desktop version on my iMac is not. This is very frustrating as when I am at home then I want to use IG on my desktop as the user experience is far greater and superior than on the smartphone. That is for emergencies only! None of my charts are loading up and the website is very slow and 'clunky'.

    Err, day trading? No thanks! His roller coaster can be smoothed out if he switches to longer term trading. Day trading is a roller coaster, that's part of that game, especially intra-day. He is right about his emotional pressures, it is because he is over trading (too many traders seeking to generate massive hits in one go). He is wrong that the way to address this is to go back to a small account as he will not have addressed his underlying emotional issues and trading errors, they will emerge again if he is successful (i.e. his account grows). In the end trading is about accumulating wealth over time not about generating a steady income. The opportunities the markets offer are lumpy so you have to be ready to take advantage when they are offered. A big part of trading successfully is to not trade, most of the time.

    On the 1H and 4H charts the picture looks like a clear break of near term support. Gold and Silver look set to test the next levels (circa 1380 & 1505 respectively). Silver is closer. A break below these levels is a lower low, after lower highs...

    Coining it? Dull it aint. Bitcoin that is. 10% swings, often in a day. Pumping up the price and deflating it like a giant balloon. Price doubled in 3 months. But then again it did lose 70% of it's value in 2017. Definitely not a one way bet. Stability is not the watchword with blockchain currencies. Plus there is little or no rhyme or reason for the swings. Even if there are fewer and less frequent coins being created. Volatility is blockchain's friend. $10 000 BTC, (again?) why not? A $4000 BTC again why not? Glad it's not vegetables or ice cream though. Though it is in China (certain veg) atm. New currencies... so do you trust the ledger?

    Gold has arrived at an important juncture for me but before that looking at that I looked back at the long term charts to remind myself of the big picture. Unsurprisingly there are 2 scenarios (1 up and 1 down), actually a third which is continued consolidation (sideways) because in the big picture Gold remains in a long term consolidation Triangle, which is narrowing. This is significant as at some point Gold will breakout of this Triangle and that will signal the resolution to which of the 2 scenarios wins out. For my money it is scenario 1, a massive Gold rally in concert with a massive stocks Bear as Gold once again reverts to its historic role as a store of value in uncertain times, and do we ever live in such times..! Note under these conditions Gold can, and almost certainly will, go in the same direction as USD. So I am Bullish gold and given all the bullish chatter of late you might imagine I am happy. Alas I remain unconvinced of this rally and will not be so until there is a break of the previous high, around 1347, which we are very close to. Actually I really want to see a break of the upper resistance (LT Triangle line and potential H&S neckline breakout). The short term offers 2 scenarios as well: the first a break of that prior High and turn at 1347, the second that we are currently seeing a wave B turn back down to a final wave C bearish run of the EWT1-2 retrace and a test of the Fib 50% line (also Weekly chart Fib 23%) before the true rally gets going. I am minded to the latter unless or until I see a break of the 1347 high. Technicals: A-B-C retrace could be completed where I have marked Green A at 1266. A break of the 1347 high would confirm. If not then the retrace is a complex version and the market will turn before or at 1347 and drop in a wave C. The form of the rally is currently in an A-B-C, which is not motive, however a break of the 1347 zone will change this set up. There is an un-closed gap around the Fib 50% level. There is a pin bar and inside bar price action formation at the current market area, showing a potential turn once this is resolved. RSI and Stochastic are over-bought. There is NMD on the 4 hour and 1 hour chart at the pin bar high, although we could yet see another test of the 1347 level before this resolves. Note also that we have seen a reverse Death Cross (some call this a Golden Cross) but I would ideally like to see a cancellation of this and then a final cross to cement a rally. This will only occur if we get a big bearish move now followed by a wave 2 retrace turn into a very strong rally. I am not looking to trade the bearish move, I prefer to wait for the Bull rally triggers and prefer to trade this in Silver rather than Gold, the former having remained more subdued. Add to that the Platinum bearishness and I can't yet see a case for precious metals rally. I think we will see continued stocks bullishness for a while, albeit likely to contain a lot of whipsaw action rather than a rocket, which does not support a massive precious metals rally, yet.

    @Bell I see resistance @25350ish on the Dow any higher than that and I think June will be a Bull month, it sounds daft but it does seem to work a little that way, month by month. We may even see the Dow get there tonight and that will be interesting for the rest of the week. It looks like I'll be up late tonight looking for that short especially if the Dow gets to 25350 then pulls back. I trade the Dax but the Dow is the Boss.

    @Dantro, By having a stop loss strategy you should know your exit before you enter the trade. Have a look at indicators such as volume (is it increasing along with the price action), momentum, RSI, moving averages, etc. Use all of these and others to help you make an informed decision. Why is the particular asset moving in the direction it is. Use Oscilators for potential entry points when you have identified a trend. What moving averages are you looking at from a time perspective? Even after applying all of the above you can still lose on a trade if your timing is wrong. Trading is supposed to be extremely difficult and anyone who suggests otherwise is wrong. It will require a large capital buffer, patience, discipline, effort, etc. The hardest thing to do as a trader is nothing. Sometimes merely waiting patiently for the right opportunity to trade based on trends is hard if you are 'trigger happy'.

    Recently we have touched on an interesting and oft little know resource that technical and fundamentals traders alike leverage. The US Commodity and Futures Trading Commission issues the positions "commitments" of traders on the exchanges covering a wide range of markets (see link below). https://www.cftc.gov/MarketReports/CommitmentsofTraders/index.htm Now traders will use this in different ways, as with everything in trading there are likely to be several different approached. Here is how I use COT data within my trading methodology. Note that I am a long term swing traders so I am looking for major trend changes to enter high probability/low exposure positions. Note also that a big part of this strategy for anyone doing it is to be contrarian when it makes sense (i.e. bet against the herd at the end of the trend as they pill over the cliff!). I am using Gold to illustrate this as I have been actively using it to inform my Gold trading, especially when I went Long in Sept & Nov 2018 (see my Gold and Silver Rally thread for the history on that one if you are interested) The bottom line on this is quite simple. When the the Non Commercials are heavily net one way or the other, based on historical swings and peaks and this occurs where my technical analysis is showing a turn I get ready to go the opposite way. most of these Non Commercials are trend followers and have to be in the market, where as retail traders can sit it out and wait, this is our one big advantage. The chart below shows annotations of where the Non commercials have been peak Long when the market turns down and vice versa. Food for thought. PS I use the combined Futures and Options data set.

    @Nelsy-Boy, In my experience if the price of an asset moves with low volume then it is a 'weaker move' against when the price of an asset moves on high volume which to me represents a 'stronger move'. The volume tends to go with the trend. To me it shows how much conviction traders have on the trend in play. A word of caution here @Nelsy-Boy. Volume can be manipulated to make it look like there is higher volume to attract trades. I am not sure if you have come across the Volume Price Trend (VPT) Indicator? It shows the strength of the price change and the price direction of the asset in question. I am sure if you look this up then you will find plenty of material on this. I personally tend to look for an increase in volume when trying to identify trends both on the upwards and downwards. If I see volume increasing as the price is increasing / decreasing then it is telling me that the trend is getting stronger. There are other indicators to consider but this is just one of many that can go into the 'basket' before making a final assessment / conclusion on whether the trend is strong enough to trade. So to answer your question, in my personal opinion, more times than not if the price moves a big chunk higher with little volume then this is not as positive as if the price moved with higher volume. So to summarise below: Price moves upwards / downwards on low volume = Potential weaker move / trend Price moves upwards / downwards on higher volume = Potential stronger move / trend

    Afternoon all, below is from JPM - (3rd party, not advise, usual caveats apply): Jeff Simmons view on EURUSD given midterm outcomes ** Republicans keep Senate and lose House - Assuming we get an as-expected outcome, it is unlikely we get too much activity in the markets, although the USD could sell off a bit at the margin simply on the back of any possibility of the GOP keeping both chambers being removed from the equation. I would not expect such a selloff to exceed 50bp, and very likely it would be a good bit less than this barring any micro-overshoot in thin Far East trading conditions. Republicans to manage to hold on to the House & keep Senate - we would likely see a fairly sharp reaction higher in the USD, perhaps 1-1.5%, as the “Trump Trade” is revisited. Needless to say, such a move would be nothing like what we saw in late 2016, but I would expect 1.1300 to be seriously challenged in eur/usd and most likely broken. Betting markets have this House outcome as roughly a 35% probability, so the odds are not so remote as to not have at least a small element of risk premium for this outcome in the markets already Overall View - We remain tactical usd bears for the time being, with an obvious sense of caution and right-sizing around this event. The levels and overall positioning remain sufficiently convincing though to hold some exposure. In the Euro, 1.1440/60 remains important, and in my mind a close above this area is required to get the idea of an imminent break of 1.13 out of the current narrative.

    Hi. So as you know Bitcoin Gold was a hard fork of Bitcoin which occurred during the crypto boom. At the time it was somewhere within the top 10 and therefore offered on the platform. Since then it has seen a significant sell off and now settles somewhere in the top 30. Whilst we offer crypto, we are not a crypto broker and therefore aim to offer only the most liquid and popular coins in this asset class. Over the few months we offered it we had little to no interest (short of people closing their positions). Furthermore liquidity is terrible, hardly any exchanges offer it on an institutional dealing level, and price feeds etc are limited. This is the same as when we need to pull Stock listings on the leverage platform, generally after they see a significant sell off and fall into the same issues as above (liquidity, interest, pricing etc).

    Yes its a fairly humdrum company and I suppose diversification could help, or indeed it could fit as part of a portfolio for a wider group. I definitely think it is a safe bet, albeit boring, but should be fine over time. And pays a decent dividend in the meantime. Perfect for a SIPP or somewhere for a long term hold, imo.

I've not seen this monthly web magazine before and it looks very interesting, the next article after 'Cut Your **** Losses' in a interesting piece on volatility box trading plus skimming through there is lots of interesting TA too, and not solely about FX. Their web site is worth a look as well (second link) https://content.yudu.com/libraryHtml/A43egz/Englishedition39/reader.html?page=30&origin=reader http://www.fxtradermagazine.com/

    Recent move down filled an unfilled gap . Looks like a bit of consolidation / accumulation there. Two things on my mind :- 1) Sky takeover is now sorted & ITV has always been talked about as a bid target : 2) ITV is talked about bidding for another company which carries a bit of debt - if they were to go down that route, they would have to raise some cash to do it ( rights issue maybe ) - So two opposing situations to consider !!!

    Hi @TrendFollower and @Caseynotes (chat wont let me tag you??) As always thanks for the insight and details. Do you guys know of any stock scanner like FinViz etc to search through EU and UK stocks? My research only basically says no to this question. The reason I ask is because since you guys gave me some great advice recently, my trading has improved in that I am more accurately spotting trades with a higher success rate. Still not 100% profitable but I think this is down to over trading (trying to force trades and setups). At the moment my pre-market research involves clicking through all charts on EU 50 and FTSE 100, so probably not very efficient! PS I have found some success in trading channels, MA cross overs/divergence and direction of Bollinger bands and placement of the share price in the Bollinger band. So I am looking for a scanner that can potential provide me with the basic filters (trade volume, volatility ratio etc) and then I want to scan for cross overs etc. Thanks as always!

    Hi If you are destroying your account within three weeks you are doing somthign wrong. Like placing positions way to high, and not allowing enough of a risk:reward margin. I would recommend going through the IG educaiton, especially in respect of calculating risk reward, because this should drive your position size. There is a course here on money management and risk:reward https://www.ig.com/uk/learn-to-trade/ig-academy/money-management all other courses are available free at IG Academy >> https://www.ig.com/uk/learn-to-trade/ig-academy You'd be wise to have read these first, and digested the information here. Also, why not post a few trades you are thinking of placing, and inviting the forum to discuss. I've setup a thread here where I am encouraging people to post quick trade ideas There is no absolute right or wrong. I get some right, and also some wrong too. But the key point is limiting exposure and knowing when to get out if a trade doesn't go to plan or the investment case changes.

    Yes - guests can post on Community, however all posts need to be verified by a moderator. We look out for posts which look spammy or don't add value, but if a post futhers the conversation, providers an alternative point of view, adds value, offers thanks, or is interesting then we will 'approve it' and let it show publically. Absolute priority is given to quality over quantity, however in my opinion over the last couple weeks this option for guests to post has been beneficial and added value to the community. Interested in others thoughts.

Dear Ms Champion, Thank you for your emails dated 24 June 2018, and your previous email of 7 June 2018, relating to ESMA decision 2018/796. Please note that our Decision 2018/796 contains detailed explanations of the rationale of our measures. Should you wish to read it, our decision is available in the Official Journal of the European Union (here https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=OJ:L:2018:136:TOC ). We note that your email refers specifically to the possibility to claim for damages in relation to the product intervention measure that ESMA adopted under Article 40 of Regulation (EU) No 600/2014. Please note that the remedies available against a decision of ESMA are set out in Chapter V of Regulation (EU) No 1095/2010 (available here: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/PDF/?uri=CELEX:32010R1095&from=FR). If you are uncertain of your rights under this Chapter, we would encourage you to seek legal advice. Kind regards, ESMA At least I managed to get heard by them.
