    What about your trades?

    while you've been sat there wasting your time the market just dropped 100 points and is still going. you should look and listen.

    I currently have an issue moving from My IG Dashboard screen to any of my live or Demo accounts. When I click on "Open New Platform" button I'm redirected to a page which fails to load any data. The webpage keeps getting stuck at - https://demo-deal.ig.com/wtp/

    Can someone please advise. 


    Hi did you try the fix on this page, new platform about half way down,

    No wonder so many 'successful traders' make their money from selling training courses

    google says there are around 10 million traders world wide and you've probably heard of around 50 educators selling trading courses 🤔

    Ah, until I square the position you mean? I bought the securities quite some time back so they've settled already

    there is a short video on this page linked below on the share dealing platform which shows the headers 'available to withdraw' and 'available to deal' which has a dropdown box which gives more info.

  5. "Stanford University's disease prevention chairman slammed using statewide lockdown measures as a response to the coronavirus, saying they were implemented based on bad data and inaccurate modeling."

    “For people younger than 45, the infection fatality rate is almost 0%. For 45 to 70, it is probably about 0.05%-0.3%. For those above 70, it escalates substantially.”

    Huge wild swings up and down = no trend to follow = lose money

    er, are you referring to the eminently tradable recent medium term range? 


    take a look at the video in the last post of the technical analysis thread (trading support and resistance revisited).

    Ay, me too, Tom Bombadil, me too.  😼

    Always start with a look at yesterday's candle, the colour, ohlc. Expect continuation of colour, if blue expect resistance (yesterday's high) to be challenged (the low if yesterday's candle red) continue with the continuation bias until the daily pivot is overcome.

    One of the key components of the intergovernmental fear campaign to promote COVID lockdowns – was dubious computer modelling. Initially, these were referred to as “The Science” by ****-sure politicians and public health officials. The press quickly fell in line with this groupthink. Any dissenters were roundly attacked and deplatformed. As their mission crept on, it became clear that these models were ever only masquerading as ‘science’.

    I am trying to place an order so it will open when marker opens as usual , however it doesn’t let me place the order saying “ market no longer available online “ what does it mean ? Is it that that stock can’t be trade on the platform again ?

    Hi, probably temporary and usually means something unusual is happening or about to happen with the stock, does it have a phone symbol instead of a green dot next to the name? if so means telephone trades only.

    Can someone tell me what "Wall Street (data only)" means in the Popular Markets?

    Is it a combination of the futures of Dow, S&P and Nasdaq, or what?

    Thanks in advance.


    Hi, not a 100% sure I think it means in general that the data is not from a live IG feed and is either delayed data or last received data if the market is closed for example. 

  11. Worries about the second viral surge are misleading, yes as more people emerge from lockdown and mix and with the massive increase in testing there will be an increase in new cases found but the death rates are not increasing at the same rate, unwell 86 year old males can only die once it seems and that was in the first wave, all the accumulated data shows that the under 45s have an almost zero chance of dying of Covid 19 (see research papers linked in posts above).

    Incidentally there is no test for Covid 19, only for covid type viruses which include most other flus as well as the common cold.
