  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. 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,

Hi I've traded ETF's and ETC's since the early 2000's - Biggest bug bear was quickly finding those products priced in GBP and not USD My charting software has solved this issue Maybe a good post would be to explain the pro's and con's for Leveraged products - holding for long and short term etc and Delta one too

  8. So many "multi level marketing" people, scammers... they go to their bank (or mom and dad) and get a lot of money. Then they go to a car rental (or even private jet rental) and take some photos. What they want is you to follow them on YouTube/Instagram so the platform can feed you ads so they get money when you click on ads.

  9. Hey, Thanks for your post. If your share trading account is open but your CFD account is pending please contact us. It means we need to confirm something with you to get the account opened. All the best.

  10. I think I'm one of those people trying to be clever and think of some new way to trade the markets and your simple system works better. Point proved it might be overly simplistic to you but I wondered if your R/R ratio and method of moving the stop is actually as good as any other method? Our similar to what you'd do in reality?

  11. As usual, interesting and informative. In response to the question "Who gains", would the response be China? They have certainly cleaned up in the Oil markets (mostly). Their economy has thrived where all others have failed. Honk Kong has been effectively silenced. However, one must temper such rash conclusions with more sustained research. It is true the Dragon(China) has awoken and it's only foil; the Eagle (America) is eating itself, much to the Dragons amusement. The virus is also highly contagious,(as Corona viruses are) mutates like an X man and is randomly deadly to those w

  12. 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

  15. Agree with the forecast. US is in the middle of a social storm (which should pass). Suspect 18th Jan may be a big day for social unrest as many Trump supporters and other nationalists may feel disenfranchised and demonstrate, possibly violently, their frustrations with the system. This may appear across the country and be interpreted as a negative.

  16. 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

  19. Some of the above is ultra advanced stuff and I bet 99% of people out there aren't aware of it and more to the fact how it's derived - Do not let that stop you, you don't need to know the advanced stuff to trade profitably and consistently I don't 100% understand markets - I can't tell you what price level a market will stop at - I've yet to meet anyone that can say markets going to hit this exact level then reverse x points and then........ It cannot be done exactly and due to that issue trading and Investment becomes best guess and probabilities take control of things In trading if

  20. Latest PHE data, Prof Yeadon writes; 'In fact, recent PHE weekly reports have shown low to no excess deaths. This is completely consistent with national herd immunity, with local self limiting outbreaks possible but impossible to see a widespread & growing epidemic. Note that official data shows there is no public health emergency due to the virus. I’m not going to get into the whole business of misattribution of cause of death due to untrustworthy PCR mass testing again (yesterday’s thread covered that). Please follow Whitty’s advice & be guided by excess deaths. O

  21. 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.

  26. Never see anyone asking the MSM for their official sources do you... 🐂🦮 No one questioning why we never hear about the R number anymore... Nor the death rate.. First was deaths.. then R number.. then rate of transmission.. and now it's some super intelligent mutant virus... Actual scientists with integrity will support that when an entity mutates, it does so not in an advantageous manner. It is abundantly clear that the majority of people feel safer when stripped of their freedoms. 🐑

  27. 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 ****

  28. Absolutely delightful how people can give a good clap and pat themselves on the back for showing everyone how much of a good, brave person they are being protecting the lives of others by wearing a mask and supporting the down-on-its-knees not fit for purpose NHS. Makes me so proud to be British.

  29. 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

  33. Brilliant ONS web page, you enter your post code and see just how few are the actual covid deaths in your area for this fake 'second wave' and the reason you are currently sitting in lockdown. Bear in mind too that over half will be false positives so half of them probably died of something else anyway. Shame they don't also include the 100 deaths a day caused by denial of health service *, that would make a sweet counterpoint and highlight the complete and total incompetence of our politicians. * one of the irrefutable stats that came thick and fast in Dr Clare Craig's excellen

  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?

  36. Heya, if you open the deal ticket for your stock, under "order type" on the ticket you should be able to select Stop order. If you then select "sell", enter a numbers of shares, and enter a price under "stop level" which is lower than the current market price, your shares should be sold if the market price falls to/below your chosen stop level. I think you can only create stop orders when the market for your stock is open . You'll want to select "Good til cancelled" under "Expiry" too - if you want the stop loss to last more than a day. You should double check this with IG helpdesk

  41. @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.

  49. Hi Yes, that's what I think. I have seen a few traders who use youtube etc and they can bet smaller. How can IG grow their customers when the new rules come into force. Smaller bet size will allow them to learn on a smaller account.
