  1. The add chart is a very useful feature as the snapshot tells much about why the trade was entered (good or bad) but more useful if it was recorded to look back at over time. One day recording only would not help longer term traders so more suited to day traders and no collective data or running totals is the big draw back. The diary in it's current form would be helpful to filling out a spreadsheet at end of day. On a spreadsheet most input is by dropdown boxes or auto calc, I only add the entry, stop, exit price and comments manually.
  2. Pump and Dump on crypto exchanges. https://www.financemagnates.com/cryptocurrency/news/binance-suspends-withdrawals-trading-bot-hacked-users-accounts/?utm_content=bufferb84f1&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buff Pump and Dump in action. https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/81qkxp/when_you_are_trying_to_buy_the_dip/
  3. Thanks , Yes, withdraw it because no one is using it when no one knows it exists. I did find the diary page (search 'trading diary') but not sure how it works. It doesn't fill historically so presumably it must be running to auto fill? And does it save data one day to the next? Apart from adding comments it's not clear how to add a chart. Do you remember which tutorial you saw it being used on? IG could do more to publicise the diary though it seems basic as is it could prove very useful with a little more development and even eventual progression to a full MyFXBook type journal.
  4. Hopefully the ECB rate decision and presser will give it a kick one way or the other. The problem being that it's likely to be the presser that has most influence and lasts about 45 minutes during which there can be a lot of whipsawing until a final direction is decided.
  5. Hi Never knew they had this so thanks for the post, people have been asking for something like this for years so I presume it's fairly new. Can't find any links to show how to use it, perhaps you could post a link to where you saw it on the tutorial? I can see how to add a note but nothing else. I use an excel spreadsheet to auto calc a running total of win/lose strike rate to compare with my overall risk reward ratio after listing trade entry, exits, stops, comments and charts.
  6. Hi , as a work around you could use this pivot point calculator to give the levels to then plot on your chart. https://www.earnforex.com/pivot-points-calculator/
  7. Dax is looking to break out up past resistance this morning having climbed above the 100 and 200 MA. A break out could lead to a considerable move higher. Dow is also tight against resistance.
  8. More strange goings on at cryptocoin exchanges. Rumours of Binance hack this morning, investigation ongoing. https://btcmanager.com/bitcoin-price-below-10000-regulatory-fears-rumors-of-binance-hack/
  9. Down nearly 10% on the day, the big slide was on the 4 pm bar, but can't find that big spike up at 12 noon on any of the exchanges nor is anyone on twitter reporting it from other brokers. Ah, I see IG didn't let it stand, the spike up has been removed from the new platform chart.
  10. Jon Boorman tells of lessons learnt after 30 years of trading/investing. http://www.broadswordcapital.com/things-ive-learned-last-30-years/
  11. Wonder it that was a precursor to ADP NFP?
  12. Odd, I wonder if that figure will stand on bitcoin? Dax only spiked 90 pip, bitcoin 680 on the new platform. That is a lot of stops on shorts taken out.
  13. Bitcoin, dax and US dollar spike on no news.
  14. Hi , going by this previous thread multiple log ins should be possible but may be affected by temporary issues, keep trying, perhaps could look into it again? https://community.ig.com/t5/Platform-and-App-Technical/Multiple-Logs-In/m-p/22756#M852
  15. The Cohn news helped the trade to target but it was already well on it's way. Pity the IG staff having to call a trade every Monday morning (at circle A), looked better when attacking that resistance at B, after breaking resistance the obvious target was C. Being more short term if I was in this trade the initial target was good (1341) and if there was a determined push through bar then stay in, but the level was recognised and price turned back so I would have been content to get out and look for a possible re-entry. For a longer term trader the daily chart shows good potential for continued gains if the 1341 level breaks.
  16. The gold long reached initial target before pulling back, will be interesting to see if price can break 1340.9 and target 1361 - 1365 prior highs.
  17. Having broken through resistance noted in the previous post from this morning Gold now looking to test 1340.9
  18. Indices futures markets on the rebound as trade war risks lessen and prospects of a deal with North Korea. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-03-06/futures-surge-nuclear-trade-war-threats-fizzle
  19. GOLD long. Having got off on the wrong foot Monday now looking to break through resistance into clear space.
  20. Big drop on the 1 hour chart seems to indicate a second rejection at the 11700 level and a search lower for support.
  21. Ok, so it's an order to open rather than an open position which is why you get the message 'no open position to close' so instead of looking in 'positions' tab need to look in 'orders' tab to cancel the order. I am presuming that is a screenshot from a phone but you must have used a computer to load it here, so if you can't find the orders tab on the phone use the computer to locate it and cancel. The orders tab is directly below the positions tab on the left hand side of screen.
  22. Note the broker ratings, 13 say 'hold', only 2 say 'sell' and 1 gives it a 'strong buy'. The chart says 'if it's going to bounce from anywhere it should be here'. https://www.ig.com/uk/marketanalysis/ig-shares/capita-group-plc-CPI-UK
  23. Hi see pic below for closing in IG's new and old platform. The problem may be to do with whether you have the '1 click' trading checked or not.
