  1. you are welcome, I'm afraid the demo platforms for both mt4 and the web based have not held up well lately with this mad market volatility.
  2. Hi, click on the connection box (bottom right corner) and rescan servers then go to File > accounts and scan demo for a return ping.
  3. I am getting a return ping for the demo feed. File > open an account.
  4. Flu is not like Ebola or Aids, flu requires herd immunity before it will go away, otherwise it just waits for people to come out again or for summer but will then come back again next year. Screening tests show most who test positive are asymptomatic while diagnostic testing shows the majority who show symptoms experience a normal flu type reaction, by far the majority of severe cases are in the over 70 age group or those with underlying conditions. The big difference is the death rate which is 10 times normal flu which is why the vulnerable should be protected and isolated while herd immunity is acquired.
  5. Reminder that the death toll from common types of influenza in the US range from 80,000 to 120,000 per year. The WuFlu death toll for the US currently stands at around 400.
  6. yes I agree, it's an outrage Hamas spends all aid money to fund terrorist attacks instead of spending it on the people they are supposed to represent.
  7. Oil, Gold, USD and Bund daily charts;
  8. IG Dax spread dropped down twice since the Frankfurt open and now stands at 6 points.
  9. S&P and FTSE weekly. Dax and Dow H1 charts;
  10. Indices gap down again over the weekend and IG have again upped the spreads. Dax currently 12 points pre Frankfurt open.
  11. Good to see the wpr obos arrows and the hama indicator there, could be well worth looking at a Renko chart, will need to eye ball backtest different sizes to suit the market though. Here is a 4 point Renko on the current btcusd chart which might be a bit small as the bricks can be laid down a bit too fast for btc.
  12. the 'doubt' is there in bucket loads with regards your generalisation.
  13. you are confusing 'investing' with 'trading' again.
  14. Not necessarily, some prefer not to trade on time based charts at all. Mutli-time frame analysis is essential but tick based or Renko type charts smooth out the chop as the candles are laid down as per volatility rather than time so they might resemble a H1 chart at certain times or a M5 at others.
  15. New UK Govt list of people with existing medical conditions who should protect themselves by staying at home, they should add to this list everyone over the age of 70. These are the people who need protecting not ordinary younger people who, if they catch WuFlu, will not need hospital treatment because their symptoms will be no worse than ordinary flu in over 99% of cases. The US Govt directed total shutdown of all service businesses is predicted to lead to an 8% drop in US GDP for the 2nd quarter as well as mass bankruptcies. Repeat throughout every western country.
  16. Isolate and look after the old, allow the rest of the herd to gain immunity.
  17. As I've pointed out before if I posted a chart without the time frame you could not guess which time frame it was. All charts look similarly 'choppy'.
  18. If your target is just 20 points then a 7 point spread rather than the normal 1 point is significant but the other factor is the reason for the increased spread and that is increased volatility which means any move is more likely to run further than during times of normal volatility so an increased target should be considered.
  19. The reliability of signals is constant no matter the time frame, what differs is the duration of the move the signal indicates, shorter duration on a shorter time frame and longer on a longer time frame.
  20. Still can't quite work out why we are deliberately destroying the economies of every first world nation because of this flu virus. Yesterday I went shopping at the local mega supermarket where the shelves were all well stacked and I happily mingled with well over a hundred people doing our shopping but I'm not allowed to go to the local pub (avg 20 people) or the local gym (avg 20 people). The latest stats on US cases I saw was on Friday night where it was reported 99% of cases were classified as mild (normal flu like symptoms) and 99% of deaths were in the over 70s age group. True the death rate for WuFlu is higher than common flu currently 1% vs 0.1% in most western countries. Italy is looking like an outlier compared to the rest at this stage and no one seems sure what's going on there. Also is the fact that most of the US cases are in just 2 large cities with the rest of the country relatively unaffected. For example the state of Arizona has 7 million people and is now in total lockdown because of the death of 1 person (over 70 years old with an underlying medical condition) and people are starting to ask why? The WuFlu cases are still nowhere near the number of normal flu cases where a week off sick is all that's needed for over 99% of sufferers. I understand the use of containment in the prevention of the spread of a disease but also know that if triggered too early has no affect other than causing bankruptcies and despair, my heart bleed over selfies on twitter of Sam Smith in tears all alone in his 11 million pound mansion ­čś¬. In less than a week of lockdown some commentators are claiming it a great success because the infection rates are continuing as before (not rapidly expanding) hmmm. None of this seems to fit together unless there is something huge we are not being told.

  23. Hi, if you are a registered professional client who's margin requirement is usually 0.5% then yes that may have been raised due to high volatility. This happened once before about a year ago for some UK related markets due to Brexit related problems when the professional requirement was raised briefly to 3.5%.
