  1. Try sell some puts DOW 30K June 😁 on demo 😉 'Black Swan' index flashes yellow: Wall Street is not scared https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-stocks-options/black-swan-index-flashes-yellow-wall-street-is-not-scared-idUSKBN1YG0EG
  2. Read this https://www.investopedia.com/articles/optioninvestor/03/021403.asp "For example, if an at-the-money call option has a delta value of approximately 0.5 - which means that there is a 50% chance the option will end in the money and a 50% chance it will end out of the money - then this delta tells us that it would take two at-the-money call options to hedge one short contract of the underlying. In other words, you need two long call options to hedge one short futures contract. (Two long call options x delta of 0.5 = position delta of 1.0, which equals one short futures position). This means that a one-point rise in the S&P 500 futures (a loss of $250), which you are short, will be offset by a one-point (2 x $125 = $250) gain in the value of the two long call options. In this example, we would say that we are position-delta neutral."
  3. VIX (ig-style) and DOW Not that i am holding my breath waiting😁
  4. Think i read somewhere that the volume on DAX CFD was from FDAX, is this correct? "Our multi-venue technology combines prices from primary exchanges like the LSE, with MTF data from BATS Chi-X Europe" https://www.ig.com/uk/pricing-execution
  5. In Prorealtime you can use bid ask colorstyle and show all three at the same time
  6. And if its possible, trade barriers using prorealtime
  7. Limit orders on options would be nice😎
  8. DAX Weekly and Daily Correction time? Enough is Enough?
  9. As long as the bullmarket keep grinding higher all is well But in a bearmarket when "everybody" will sell funds and sell bull ETF and buy leveraged bear ETF then we will see how it plays out? Probably some change in regulation and ban on shortselling? "“In the Russell 2000 Index, for instance, the vast majority of stocks are lower volume, lower value-traded stocks. Today I counted 1,049 stocks that traded less than $5 million in value during the day. That is over half, and almost half of those -- 456 stocks -- traded less than $1 million during the day. Yet through indexation and passive investing, hundreds of billions are linked to stocks like this. The S&P 500 is no different -" "but the exit door is the same as it always was." https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-09-04/michael-burry-explains-why-index-funds-are-like-subprime-cdos
  10. " Big Trades Trading in ETFs usually accounts for about a quarter of the daily volume in U.S. stock markets, but that can leap to nearly 40 percent on some days. These spikes typically coincide with surprise events or policy changes" https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2018-growing-etf-market/?srnd=etfs " 'Big Short' investor Michael Burry is calling passive investment a 'bubble.' He's not the only finance luminary sounding the alarm." https://markets.businessinsider.com/news/stocks/investors-that-have-spoken-out-against-passive-investing-2019-8-1028485512#carl-icahn1
  11. Would it be possible to add more weekly options on indices? (same as FX) At least current week and next would be fine
  12. Be careful with short positions Have a feeling that this could pop to the upside? Maybe some Trump twitter or something else?
  13. Still waiting for someone with experience to start a thread on optionstrading 😉 Could be interesting and educationally Remember a oilguy? in ythe past that did some trades but he? stopped for some reason? And i think Caseynotes did som trades also?
  14. A bought option (call or put) can only go down to zero (never negative) If you have 1000 free margin and buy a call for 100 you have 900 free margin left until you sell or the option expire If you sell the option (before it expire) at 200 you have 1200 and if you sell for 50 you have 950 When the option expire (you should look it up in info) two things can happen, either it expire worthless at zero or with some kind of value that IG credits the account Best thing to do is using demo to learn how it works before risking any money
