  1. Thanks for the post. I would be interested in understand the costs associated with the relevant ETF. Do they carry the same sort of fees as one would expect from investing in the fund directly (management, performance, early exit etc.) or are they limited to the usual dealing costs - commission, SDRT? Also, for my clarity, we are talking about fund which may be issued by large investment managers (e.g. Blackrock - iShares, Baillie Gifford, PIMCO etc.) which are traded on the LSE

  2. 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,

  3. Hi JLZ You need to investigate the company issuing the said ETP's - There's lots of different ones out there, some buy real assets, so use "synthetic" tracking etc - they are 100% legit but you have to be certain they won't go bust Key considerations as you are investing real money into the ETP are: Is the ETP safe in terms of going bust Is you ISA/SIPP/DEALING account provider safe I've traded these products for decades - as long as the ETP provider does not go bust then normal investing/trading risks apply - I've just literally this afternoon taken profits on a Na

  5. 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

  6. Hi, I saw this article recently on crypto ETPs, as the FCA has banned leveraged crypto trading in the UK recently might this be an option for crypto traders in the UK in the future and your views as to suitability to trade if so?

  9. umm, just to drag you back to reality for a minute. All through Sept, Oct, Nov and Dec we were told of new covid strains sweeping through the country causing a massive rise in cases overwhelming the NHS (again), ICU's were over run. That was why we were placed in ever increasing lockdown tier levels until finally full lockdown where we sit today. As the data sets came in I posted them Sep - Dec and they showed no such thing was happening, the cases number was exploding because of the increasing mass testing of asymptomatic people was producing record numbers of false positives. 111 a

  10. once again you're not really saying anything, just the usual waffling. I'll answer my question for you seeing as you can't or won't. Yes they were by the PCR so many were misdiagnosed not that it really matters because any real pandemic will cause more excess deaths and that's not happening except where there was appalling mismanagement such as the UK that shutdown it's health service to everything other than covid. Govt minister details exactly how accurate the PCR test is ... (short clip 1 min).

  11. Lesser significance on the lower time frames. Plenty of traders trading predominantly US markets prefer to use the US time zone to look for candle patterns on the daily charts (pin and engulfing candles for example). IG's vol is derived more from IG's own data and UK and Euro exchange data. Overnight vol is predominantly from the Asian market which typically lower than the London or the US session.

  12. I'll try to be concise: Dent was in 2010 calling for the mother of all stock market crashes - so were Elliott Wave International in fact EWI have been call for a massive collapse since 1986! Some of what he says is accurate - deflation for example - the reason QE has not caused inflation is because it was issued in a deflationary cycle The crash he talks about won't happen - I listened to dent and EWI back in 2010 and I choose to do my own research as other things i was investigating suggested the opposite to what they were both spouting Read my Time Cycles page, it explai

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Listen Trading is really really hard but the SIMPLEST systems probably work best - in this game being smart or ultra clever is a hindrance I've been EXACTLY where you're at right now - you need to remember ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING has already been thought of, tried and tested - absolutely everything There's one big positive here - at least you're thinking, most don't even do that Re the NEW MOON method - I made the rules up in about 5 seconds - so I have not nor will I back test to see if more optimum stop money management placement would be better - I think over the past 10 years

  16. 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.

  17. 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?

  20. 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.

  23. When I try to "add an account" and then click on SIPP, I get the message below. Does this mean that new clients can't yet open a SIPP account? Do you know when the new SIPP solution will be available? "Add account - IG SIPP - Coming Soon - A new way to invest for your retirement is coming soon. We will let you know as soon as you can open an IG SIPP."

  24. So why was I emailed offering this knowing I didn't have a spread betting or CFD account? Shockingly misleading.

  25. If you really really really want to be able to trade effectively for a living then you HAVE no choice but to follow the rules - BUT, there are some "rules" that can be ignored! That does not mean doing absolutely everything that you read about in the guides, manuals or books - Hell man, the ONLY time I've had a Trading "Journal" was when i was back testing and testing a presumed trading method - so that I could work out expectancy etc - I do NOT keep a trading journal, I know from the trades I've taken whether I'm up or down - I KNOW my methods work because i went through the pain of test

  26. I have just moved from the UK to Spain, I am British but now have residency in Spain and live here all year round. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. Thanks for your post. You're correct the referral scheme should not have been advertised to traders who don't have a cfd/ spread betting account which we have not restricted. If however, you only trade on a share dealing account but have a cfd/ spread betting account you will see the promotion. Your friend but not breach any T&C and they need to fund and trade on a leveraged account. This is for the UK scheme.
