  1. Another old Dante classic, many need to know home truths; 55 min
  2. Good little 10 min video on Pitchfork basics, how to draw them and trade them, entries, stops and targets.
  3. Excellent, well done, hopefully you saved many from walking into a trap but as instagram shows there are thousands of the gullible out there begging to hand over their money. A regular one that comes round like clockwork every 2 or 3 years is the wonderkid who made millions overnight on the FX and is featured in a nation newspaper. Inevitably the frontman has a rich backer who paid for the photo shoots with the hired Lambo, private jet and faked account statements which they pass on to the hapless hack who prints it all up. With that kind of publicity reach potential punters queue up in their thousands to pay for mentoring or signals or whatever at between 2 and 5k a month each. The best part is that when they finally realise they've been had they're too embarrassed to tell anyone.
  4. that's true, a good follow on twitter is GuruLeaks that for years have been outing scammers in what is basically a completely unregulated space. As for providing absolute proof to the constant stream of casual inquiries as to how successful someone is I doubt anyone could be bothered. There is always Nav Sarao of course who made 70 million trading from his bedroom in his mom and dad's house, the US FBI proved that at his court case.
  5. Hi, the mt4 should be set for Net off so just placing a trade in the opposite direction for a partial amount will leave the total running minus the second trade amount. If you are using the mini terminal from the IG apps pack add-ons then if you click on the open trade box you get many options come up including partial close (see pic). You can reset the order panel for each new trade, it just remembers and reproduces the data of your last trade.
  6. Hi, doubt an algorithm could manage that for 150,000 clients simultaneously, i think someone would notice everyone was receiving different prices.
  7. Hi, these false spikes on market shutdown do happen occasionally, they are not usually reproduced on the higher time frames and don't affect accounts or orders.
  8. no one ever learnt how to trade on a demo platform, ever. the demo platform will let you learn how to use the platform and test strategies - that's it. get off the demo and start live trading on the mt4 platform for 10 pence a point as soon as possible because that's when your actual learning will start.
  9. Hi, you can change your stop type after the trade has triggered by going to the Positions tab, find the open trade and click on the numbers in the stop numbers box and there should then appear options and a dropdown box.
  10. I was reminded of this gem of an educational video from years ago but still just as relevant today; 'A Blueprint For Trading Success' 50 min.
  11. Hi, I would agree with most of your post though there are a couple of points, firstly, and not trying to be rude but you must be either quite old or trading something unusual, most floor traders became desk jockeys in the late 1990s when most markets went computerized, though some like the London Metals Exchange stayed floor operated until just a few years ago. You can get all the add-ons you want, either pay £2k a month desk fees at a prop firm or just subscribe and get them at home, prob total about the same. Trouble being is that you need to already be reasonably successful to afford them in the first place. Many people on the forum have said exactly how they trade, many times over in fact, the problem is many people are just very hard of hearing (listening) or just plain hard of thinking, or what they really want is for someone to tell them exactly what to do step by step in real time forever after. Maybe as you say the beginner can't just pick it up and instead needs to go through the whole process. I doubt IG will release the stats of successful traders, they have over 150,000 clients including many professionals and the info is likely to push those who are struggling and whose mental health is already on a knife edge completely into the abyss. 😁😁😁
  12. yeah sure. In a one way auction price can only move in one direction (up), BUT in a two way auction price can move both up AND down. For the last 12 months you have been participating in a TWO way auction. Sorry to be the one to break the news to you.
  13. S&P storming into a very bullish Friday close, strong sign of confidence going into the weekend. Daily chart with monthly levels. (what's bi-polar boy been ranting about, run out of meds again?)
  14. Hi, it seems it can take anything from a few days to, as is stated in the T and Cs, 30 days. I think what has been traded, and closed, and settled makes a big difference.
  15. Dax reaches the pivot, Dow heading that way. H1 charts;
  16. Daily confirmed deaths per million pop 7 day rolling average for the 10 of July; Testing up, new cases up, deaths not up.
  17. Hi, the order preview looks ok; quantity 100 at 100 pence price/share > £100
  18. Hi, the problem is the lack of connection so can't receive IG data. Try clicking on the connection box and rescan servers, if no luck you will need to email the helpdesk. Is it a new account, IG had similar problems a short while ago.
  19. Indices down after Dr Fauci (Gates lackey) tells the US they will have to go back into lockdown. Dax and Dow trip down to S1.
  20. Indices down, Bonds up. Oil and Gold down. Today US PPI. JPY up, USD down.
  21. Hi, not sure what's wrong there, do the order level sliders come up on the chart and what happens if you move the stop up and down? Also if a live account check what happens on demo and if demo account check on live.
