  1. The key is having a tested system that you know works over a number of trades, so then a losing trade just doesn't matter. But to be able to do that you first need to build the system, stick to the system, and keep a record of your trades. If the record of your trades shows the system doesn't work then you need to start over til you find one that does. The other course of action is just to keep shooting from the hip til you're all out of bullets.
  2. Once you gain confidence working in the new environment (live) then you will slowly start increasing size.
  3. Dow punches straight into R2 on the US market open while Dax still languishes below the pivot, the correlation really has broken down for now.
  4. I hope you are right, I don't recall anyone posting a similar 131 error message problem before on the forum, I'd also send the helpdesk an email if you haven't already done to request tech staff look into the problem.
  5. Hi, have a look at this page; https://www.earnforex.com/blog/handling-ordersend-error-131-in-metatrader-4/
  6. Developing a systematic approach counters the adverse affects of emotion; anxiety, stress, greed and fear. You really only need to be good at just one strategy. I never heard of anyone lasting who relied on their feelings, it's just not consistent because feelings are a rollercoaster of emotions.
  7. Dow retesting the all time high from overnight but lacking real drive at the mo, it took the US market open to provide the push yesterday.
  8. I've added these 2 links to this thread as they are pertinent to the subject of making a plan and how to make a plan. https://medium.com/@cryptocreddy/building-a-trading-system-where-to-start-e96381c28c2f https://medium.com/@cryptocreddy/anatomy-of-a-trading-plan-36388a9d85bd Both of which are taken from this series of Study Guides https://docs.google.com/document/d/15c3rN15rkXldY8Te3GDG4NG7noaaoikydOoZQlElwXw/preview?pru=AAABaf3_sQE*PXVDTaKtvm5VtQcvpBug2w
  9. Hi, there are no binary options available in EU countries due to EU regulations. If you have an Australian account here is a link to the digital options details page, see the 'notes' section for additional details. https://www.ig.com/au/help-and-support/cfds/fees-and-charges/what-are-ig-s-digital-100-cfd-product-details If in any of the other countries that do have 100s check this list linked below and select. https://www.ig.com/uk/compare-our-leveraged-trading
  10. EU indy prod figures better than expected but still fairly dire, Dax not impressed, currently range bound. m/m 0.9% against 0.2% expected y/y minus 0.5% against minus 1.5% expected.
  11. Interesting and yes did see gold returned but due to the lack of any stop loss the account was being driven into serious trouble by the algo, there should have been some escape mechanism triggered long before and I was wondering whether something had failed in the algo.
  12. Looking to retest recent resistance at 11803 after support found at 10958. H4 chart;
  13. Heading back up to retest the recent high 60.97 off resistance turned support at 60.28. H4 chart;
  14. Gold heading up to test recent resistance at 1409 off recent support at 1404. H1 chart;.
  15. Hi, IG lists these NZ stocks, but as stated below you could phone the dealing desk and ask though IG has restrictions on company size for their listings. http://www.marketdatasystems.com/content/files/Stockbroking Share List.pdf
  16. Dow resting on R1 after a hard climb up during the US and Asian sessions while Dax is still pulling it's boots on. Dax made little effort yesterday and the burden of a sagging EU economy is really weighing. EU indy prod figures at 10am.
  17. Thank you @pipe_wrangler, I do endeavour to push the boundaries in all the fields you mention and more. I've found that when trying to convey a theme which is new to the recipient repetition is boring and usually ignored and sometimes a more interesting tack is helpful.
  18. Hi, if you have logged straight onto the old platform the problem is likely site permissions, click the padlock icon in the address bar, select settings and check Flash to 'Allow' (not 'ask') then exit settings and click on the 'Reload Page' banner. The new platform only displays leveraged accounts as yet and can be accessed from the 'My IG' dashboard.
  19. Dow sails on leaving the weaker hands behind, after Powell's testimony to congress the July 31st rate cut seems assured and nothing major on the calendar before then to upset the cart which all probably means it's time to put the crash helmet on.
  20. Indices Gold Oil Crypto up, Bonds USD down. Chart Copper bottoming out. China data 8am, EU indy prod 10am, US PPI 1:30pm.
  21. Just noticed we got our retest of the top of the spike and has since tested lower.
  22. And there is plenty to learn, unfortunately many think you can learn it all from the charts but that's just not the case, you need a framework that can be applied to the charts. I have recommended this before in the Technical Analysis thread because over the years it is the most concise and up to date learning packages I've seen. Of special importance are the bottom half articles that make up the Study Guide section plus the video on Order Flow from the Lessons section. https://docs.google.com/document/d/15c3rN15rkXldY8Te3GDG4NG7noaaoikydOoZQlElwXw/preview?pru=AAABaf3_sQE*PXVDTaKtvm5VtQcvpBug2w
  23. Yes, major news events can cause very sudden and major disruption to order flow, they can cause sudden reversals and start new long term trends. They are times when spread widens, volatility increases and liquidity can dry up which is why many retail traders avoid trading around them altogether. You should certainly know when they are due, I check the econ calendar every day and try to point out the major ones in the daily dashboard thread in the mornings.
