  1. Commodities seems to move more?
  2. DAX seems to be between a rock and a hard place? I wonder where the max pain is? "Max pain, or the max pain price, is the strike price with the most open contract puts and calls - and the price at which the stock would cause financial losses for the largest number of option holders at expiration." https://www.investopedia.com/terms/m/maxpain.asp
  3. Probably, Dont forget to use a wide stop😉 "To summarize: while the range of returns across 1-year periods have varied from negative 37.0% to +53.2%, the annualized returns across 20 year periods have a much tighter range from +0.5% to +13.2%." https://themeasureofaplan.com/us-stock-market-returns-1870s-to-present/
  4. But he lags the democrats😁 "'Trump’s stock market rally is very good, but still lags Obama and Clinton" "The Dow Jones industrial average has gained about 45 percent since Trump was sworn in nearly three years ago. The Dow was up about 53 percent at this point in Obama’s presidency and a whopping 57 percent in Clinton’s early years in office." https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/12/28/trumps-stock-market-rally-is-very-good-still-lags-obama-clinton/
  5. " You can be a bold trader or an old trader (meaning you can grow old trading and making bits every day, or you can be bold and retire early)." I always thought bold trader meant someone that blow the account and stop trading😉 But could be the other way? More like Jesse Livermore in hes early years 😎
  6. Have you found "the holy grail" trading system?😉 If you are profitable and trade big size IG may have to hedge? " Protection of your codes Encryption of your codes: your codes are encrypted by encryption keys before being sent to the ProOrder server. They are not transmitted over the internet without encryption. In addition, to preserve the confidentiality of your codes, no ProRealTime employee knows all of the encryption codes. Security audits: ProRealTime organizes voluntary security audits on a regular basis and applies recommended action plans to reinforce IT security. ProRealTime internal rules: ProRealTime does not execute orders for itself via the ProRealTime platform or ProOrder technology. Also, our IT charter and our conflict of interest prevention policy require all employees to declare their operations on financial markets, including via ProRealTime and via ProOrder technology." https://trading.prorealtime.com/en/automatic-trading
  7. Dont know, but you could try contact Prorealtime and ask them With v10,3 you cant export a template but maybe with the new v11? But custom indicators and tradingsystem i always export to disk and save a copy so i can import them later if something happens
  8. What about tax in UK I know profit on spreadbetting is taxfree but you have to pay tax on profit using CFD But what happens if you make a loss on trading CFD, can you use it in some kind of deduction if you have other income?
  9. My prediction for DOW the year 2020 (for what its worth) 😎 I think we will see some profit taking in January (maybe 5% or so down to 27 000 ish?) Then straight up to 30 000 in a couple of months (spring time?) Then its time to start worry about the US election and take profit with VIX rising If Trump wins we could get a relief rally and if some democrat wins then its time to prepare for a bearmarket in stocks https://www.cnbc.com/2019/11/13/investors-see-sell-off-if-warren-wins-they-said-the-same-about-trump.html " “they won’t open the stock market if Elizabeth Warren is the next president.” " He also blasted what he views as her anti-capitalist positions, including a proposed wealth tax. “I don’t need Elizabeth Warren telling me that I’m a deadbeat and that billionaires are deadbeats. "
  10. But if you are bull this is great news😁 Its when the last bear give up and starts buying Tesla the end is near for the bull https://www.cnbc.com/2019/08/30/stock-market-a-contrarian-buy-signal-has-been-triggered.html https://www.isabelnet.com/bofaml-bull-bear-indicator-2/
  11. If you are a contrarian, what do you think of this? "Another Hedge Fund Giant Bites the Macro Dust" "In total, hedge fund assets have declined by $77 billion this year alone, the research firm estimates, leaving the industry as a whole managing a smidgen more than $3 trillion. " https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2019-11-21/louis-bacon-another-hedge-fund-giant-bites-the-macro-dust
  12. How do I set up automatic rollover instructions for spread betting or CFDs? You can set up automatic rollover instructions by logging in to My IG, going to the ‘settings’ tab and selecting ‘rollovers’, then following the instructions. Once rollovers have been set up on your account, you will receive a confirmation email.
