  1. Hi, I'm not using PRT but I know it does have an extensive array of indicators as standard and also has a large community of amateur coders who have written hundreds of additional indicators for free download that can be added to the platform. https://www.prorealcode.com/library/
  2. yes this is all true though don't forget the market already knows each of those points and did make adjustments due to them at the time. Whether those adjustments were on the correct scale remains to be seen and so far the market has chosen to believe that the affects caused by the virus spread will be relatively short term. You can be sure that if new news undermines that forecast the market will be quick to respond though do you really want to front run that possibility, probably not though the need for caution is always present, especially for long hold positions. The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) (an assessment of the average price to ship raw materials) has raised eyebrows for a few weeks now and is interesting and always worth keeping an eye on. See the longer term chart below which doesn't show the recent down turn which, as you say, is probably down to virus connected concerns.
  3. Bespoke @bespokeinvest 1m Fridays have been a terrible day for equities this year, but at least we have Monday.
  4. Might be a little too late even for a scalp on Dow especially as it's got a couple of serious support levels just below and there certainly is no headlong rush for the door pre long weekend.
  5. or just checking where the buyers are hanging out?
  6. Hi, that's a glitch on the demo platform for some reason I'm afraid. Not seen on the live platform.
  7. don't worry MMT is coming so fear not, in the meantime I've got the Dow covered, what could possibly go wrong?
  8. ha, but I thought those guys spent millions on research and computer modeling etc.
  9. Hi, yes IG operate a variable spread system plus a set increase for out of hours trading so probably need to use the average for any strategy backtest and restrict to normal hours only. Backtests will only give an approximation of how the EA might perform live so if it passes a backtest the next step is a trial on a live account with minimum position size. Not to many EA users on the forum at the moment so hopefully you can draw a few out with your posts. Best of luck.

    US OIL

    challenging near term resistance;
  11. Big funds play catch up. "Hedge Funds buying equities en masse"
  12. FuturesTrader71 @FuturesTrader71 PSA: Not all risk is the same. Playing with stops or doubling down in trading moves a trader into the High Probability, High Impact category.
  13. S&P already made a new all time high today, got a hurry on as it's a bank holiday weekend in the US and can't hang around all day 🙂 may see some selling this afternoon as a 'just in case' play but if the market continues up into the weekend will tell you the bulls are max confident for the near term. Dax and Dow not far behind, Ftse remains uncertain.
  14. Overnight Indices and Bonds up. USD and Gold down. Oil mixed. Today Ger GDP 7am. EU GDP 10am. US reatail sales at 1:30pm.
  15. Hi, in addition to the above what they are really talking about is at times of higher than normal volatility there may be slippage. It used to be that disreputable brokers would happily pass on slippage if it worked against the client but slippage can work either way and they would pocket any gain if it worked in your favour. What IG are pointing out is that they will pass the not only any loss but also any gain if actual price is better than the current price when you hit the buy or sell.
  16. from FOX business news 'China under reporting' see below.
  17. ok, sounds like a demo glitch but an odd one, not heard before. if the trade is still on in the positions tab perhaps see how it plays out or just close it but if happens again I would call the helpdesk and see if tech can check your demo account for you.
  18. Interesting monthly chart. Brannigan Barrett @Trader_Bran 44m #eurgbp has been stuck in range since 2016. If #BorisJohnson is able to open up the spending taps in 2020, you can expect to see us trading below 83c support after the UK budget announcement #trading
  19. Interesting weekly chart; Aksel Kibar, CMT @TechCharts 5m #SOUTHAFRICA #TOP40 benchmark held well over the past weeks. Indices, equities that hold well during volatile periods can emerge strong one the momentum returns. I see a possible breakout opportunity on SA index.
  20. it's ok, the nhs gave him a face mask and a fist full of aspirin 😃
  21. and keep taking the meds.
  22. I also noted yesterday that the UK 'super spreader' was discharged from hospital after just a few days?
  23. interesting, I pointed this out this morning, so looks like caused by govt action rather than the virus suddenly exploding. John Robb @johnrobb 6m A new spike in Coronavirus cases.... This latest spike is also likely related to recent efforts to forcibly round up people convalescing at home.
