  1. FTSE and S&P daily still unsure of direction. Dax and Dow checked higher to the daily pivot earlier this morning before backing down towards S1.
  2. Not much movement over the weekend. Indices and Bonds mixed. Oil down and Gold up. Today Ger consumer prices at 1pm. Watch out US NFP this week on Thursday and US July Bank Holiday Friday. EUR up, USD down.
  3. ‘The lockdown is causing so many deaths’ Dr Malcolm Kendrick on the disastrous response to Covid-19. Few would disagree that the UK’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic has been a shambles. We are now in the 14th week of a three-week lockdown and excess deaths are among the highest in Europe. But while the received wisdom is that lives could only have been saved by locking down harder, earlier and for longer, the benefits of lockdown remain unproven, while the costs of lockdown are starting to mount. Dr Malcolm Kendrick is a GP and author of Doctoring Data: How to Sort Out Medical Advice from Medical Nonsense. spiked caught up with him to get his take from the frontline. https://www.spiked-online.com/2020/06/26/the-lockdown-is-causing-so-many-deaths/#.Xvb4uRFDEOI.twitter
  4. HAHAHA, on the mandatory wearing of face masks ... "Not compulsory. Exempt if you have a health condition. And that can be anxiety, claustrophobia, severe distress about wearing one, asthma etc. Most of the disability awareness groups have cards on their websites that are acceptable." Thrive & Seek Co. @ThriveSeek
  5. Hi, is there a reason you must have a tab?, you can do all this on the platform, add text and drawings, then right click on the chart and select Export chart and a copy is sent to your Downloads folder from where you can move it to anywhere on your computer.
  6. Interesting insight into Nasdaq's repeating 5% corrections near the end of the vid 'understanding auction imbalances' just posted in Technical Analysis thread.
  7. Interesting 25 min video on understanding auction imbalances using market and volume profiling. Uses these tools to mark out areas for retest.
  8. Hi, see market data by hitting the 3 bar icon top left corner (see pic below)
  9. so continuing this real life farce we step from the absolute need for the 2 mt social distancing law (protests are exempt except protests against the social distancing law) to the face mask requirement law, see below the Govt info on the usefulness of face masks published previously, expect that to change soon.
  10. IG is not sending the demo feed to new accounts (old accounts not affected) must be related to the info notice you received, all you can do is send a email to make sure they are aware that the problem has not been completely fixed.
  11. this allows you to open an 'un-docked' deal/order ticket or an un-docked chart so you can move them around and place them anywhere.
  12. Stochastic as a trend and a trigger indicator. Stoch 96 (green and purple) rising or moving sideways in overbought shows an up trend so looking for long entries only. Stoch 96 descending or moving sideways in oversold shows a down trend so looking for short entries only. Stoch 14 K (blue) cross up over D (red) is the trigger signal for long. Stoch 14 K crossing down under D is the trigger for a short.
  13. That is just an on-chart stochastic (smoothed) instead of it being in a sub window.
  14. FTSE and S&P daily. Dax and Dow H1;
  15. Indices and Oil up. Gold and Bonds down. Today Lagarde speaks at 8am. NZD up.
  16. Hi, no without the demo feed you can't do anything, seems the problem has not been fully resolved by IG tech.
  17. Why levels are so important for trading.
  18. 'price per point' would imply a cfd platform but in order to sell contracts you don't hold the broker needs to find someone to lend them to you, if no one is willing to do so then no deal.
  19. Hi, if you login to IG first then open the Academy you bypass the reg page.
  20. Seasonal flu: death rate around 0.1 percent. The flu strikes every year, but no two seasons are exactly the same. Global deaths annually: between 291,000 to 646,000 Trusted Source; https://www.healthline.com/health-news/how-deadly-is-the-coronavirus-compared-to-past-outbreaks#Seasonal-flu Covid 19: death rate around 0.1 percent. As of June 23, 2020, Belgium had the highest rate of coronavirus deaths among its population in the European Economic Area at 84.9 deaths per 100,000 population. The United Kingdom has the highest number of confirmed coronavirus deaths in Europe, which is also an incidence of 64.1 deaths per 100,000 people in the country. https://www.statista.com/statistics/1111779/coronavirus-death-rate-europe-by-country/
  21. "Locking down an entire country ... cost you up to 3% of GDP per month, so even the richest nations on the planet cannot afford another two, three months complete lockdown". - UBS
  22. Monte's rather erratic daily report. Thursday; https://www.ig.com/content/dam/publicsites/igcom/Dubai/files/education/IG's%20Daily%20Market%20Report%2025-6-2020.pdf
  23. Hi, did you see this page shares section with worked examples, some points. minis at 3%, 3 days worth on Fridays, US Libor rates. https://www.ig.com/uk/help-and-support/spread-betting-and-cfds/fees-and-charges/why-is-overnight-funding-charged-and-how-is-it-calculated-
  24. so two concerns, price freeze on the web based and possible covert throttling on the PRT. I remember 2 cases where IG said they didn't like the way someone was trading and implemented a size cap on their trades but that was completely open and very much of the 'and we don't give a **** if you don't like it' nature.
