  1. The MT4 Strategy Tester can be used to manually test indicator based strategies in fast forward, it can also test trading algos (EAs) that produce an end of test report. Click on the Strategy Tester icon in the Tool bar. Select Indicator or EA test. Choose the indicator you want to test from your Navigator list, choose the market and the time frame to test on and then press Start. A new chart is created with the chosen indicator installed.
  2. Quite a good little video (10 min) looking at trading supply and demand and is very similar to the way I like to trade. So initially looks at the key S/D areas or levels then highlights micro S/D levels to swing trade with trend as price travels from one key level to the next.
  3. Dax taking a closer look at R2 while Dow considers R1;
  4. not if the country continues it's slow awakening after the virus shutdown and Seattle protesters realising that if you shut out the police you shut out all services.
  5. if you are allowed the option should be listed in your My IG > Accounts or Settings, will depend on the info you gave on your original application.
  6. Hi, I pointed this out in another thread. On the left is VWAP (Volume Weighted Average Price) period 20 close price. On the right is Volume Weighted Moving Average (VWMA) period 20 close price (available on the IG platform). They can be made to behave differently but it seems to depend on the price calc (open, close, avg etc) https://www.investopedia.com/articles/trading/11/trading-with-vwap-mvwap.asp
  7. to keep markets running 24/5 the broker needs liquidity providers for all markets not just FX, the broker is not necessarily market making at all and they can hedge any way they want.
  8. FTSE and S&P daily. Dax and Dow H1 charts;
  9. Overnight Indices trip down then up on China talk concerns. Oil, Bonds and Gold down. Today PMIs all day. EUR up, CAD down
  10. not really, we are called retail traders for a reason, we are involved in the retail market and not the wholesale market because we're too small to participate, we're reliant on brokers to trade through (not with). Brokers give us access to markets we would not normally be able to trade on but we can only trade the prices that the broker can offer. The broker is dependent on prices from their liquidity providers, the broker may aim to 'track' an underlying market but are limited to what is actually available, sometime a broker will stop a market (their market) simply because they are not able to quote reasonable prices.
  11. yes but the metaquotes mt4 is using metaquotes feed not a brokers feed, you can't use it to trade on, the problem is that your computer seems to be blocking IG's feed. IG's address is; mt4.ig.com:443
  12. It would be interesting to know how many bad first posts are stopped by the moderators compared to the number of posts that are not seen because by the time they are checked and ok'd they are re-inserted way back in the forum order. They only started doing the checks because 1 company kept on signing on and placing ads on the forum. Seems a shame that many first posts are not seen and so not replied to.
  13. 20 min video on 3 common price action mistakes from Rayner Teo. (see how it works 😉)
  14. this doesn't seem to have anything to do with technical analysis? it looks to be just an advertisement for someone selling a trading course.
  15. Hi, no IG doesn't hook up to Tradingview, you could take a look at the IG Prorealtime platform package.

    US OIL

    US Oil still stuck at 40.60. Daily chart;
  17. S&P at 3100. Daily chart;
  18. there shouldn't be a block on IG, perhaps it is because you are trying on a work setup that is causing the problem.
  19. yes you should be able add a broker feed to any mt4 by clicking on the 'add a broker' and selecting from the dropdown box or typing in IG's address as it is displayed in the pic (IG is 443).
  20. was about to say Dax was looking for an excuse to break through the PP and then it did.
  21. but IG has over 100,000 clients, they've not singled you out and are studying your stop positions but someone else might be. I've not looked at your charts but to describe a classic short squeeze. If a big player wants a lot of buy contracts around a certain low a good way to get them without constantly bidding the market up is to first force price down to trigger stops below the low and then start buying them up, sure they lose a bit forcing price down but with all those contracts back on the market and now in their possession the gains from a big move up will more than compensate the initial loss. So yes there are stop hunters out there but it's not likely to be your broker.
  22. https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/1274660709301800962/pu/vid/1280x720/D2R3JSMpC79Ccz71.mp4?tag=10
  23. ok, you are not getting the feeds for some reason, both should have a green check not red; try a re-scan from the connection box bottom right of the screen;
  24. FTSE and S&P daily sits below the monthly R1. Dax and Dow H1, Dax waits at the daily pivot, Dow looks at it from below and is not too sure.
  25. Over the weekend Indices, Oil and USD down. Gold and Bonds up. AUD up, JPY down.
