  1. still never found a decent UK company version of this site 🤢
  2. ah, gun sling it out with the big boys, make sure you're wearing your brown underpants. 👀
  3. Hi, when trading derivatives on IG you are trading IG's market which tracks the underlying market so IG don't have a non-trading hour mid week. They do though around that time switch from more main stream liquidity providers to er, others, that might cause short term increased volatility and may even cause a spike on the charts which may be seen as slippage if you were opening or closing a trade at that time.
  4. Hi, IG use a variable spread system which also applies to the min stop distance and is determined by the current market volatility. This will determine where you are able to place a new trailing stop and I think it does have a step function to delay the start, play around on the demo, that's what it's for.
  5. @Nexuscrawler & @Hippocampus, Hi, all 'daily funded bets' (DFB) also known as spots have a daily interest charge (or credit). The Futures or Forwards markets are designed for holding longer term and have a larger spread instead of the daily interest charge. If expecting to hold for less than a week the DFB is probably better, if longer than a week think futures. The swaps fees can only be worked out accurately at end of day but some estimates can bee seen for some markets on the platform, see https://www.ig.com/uk/help-and-support/spread-betting-and-cfds/fees-and-charges/why-is-overnight-funding-charged-and-how-is-it-calculated- Options are probably best left til understanding of the general leveraged platforms (DFB and CFDs).
  6. hi, occasionally the demo platform does misbehave, you may find that the problem resolves itself post weekend break on restart Sunday 11pm, if not call or email the helpdesk to get tech to reset for you.
  7. Zerohedge is well known to us here, he's nothing if not consistent 🙂 (since about 2011 if memory serves).
  8. Cross asset returns. 1 week, 1 month, and YTD. (themarketear)
  9. Hedge funds and pension funds shift their money between assets and markets and have stayed away from equities until now during this 2 year period of market consolidation, their analysis looks to be telling them to get back in, if so it will spark a new leg up.
  10. A reminder as to what the start of a bull market looks like and what the start of a crash looks like; h/t to Bostoncharts.
  11. @dmedin 👀 LOOK 👀, get in there quick!! Mike Bellafiore @MikeBellafiore We are hiring traders https://www.futuresmag.com/2019/08/11/top-40-proprietary-trading-firms
  12. Boom boom, that's one of Winston Churchill's isn't it. With regards the first point we have been watching the open interest in these markets for some time now and have noted how historically it's low meaning the big funds have held only a light position throughout the period of uncertainty and have only just recently started to increase their holdings in equities. That is the very thing that drives a new bull run. Sure something might come along and trip them up but in the mean time I'll follow the direction their analysis takes them.
  13. interesting but whereabouts, UK? UK and Ger follow the US lead as they need American consumers to start buying more from the big Dax and Ftse companies before they start to see any upturn.
