  1. Will this Bitcoin Future be available on IG ? If it will be i hope it will mean more capacity to actually trade, as i see so many of us are struggling to open long positions atm using the current listing.
  2. Thanks for sharing. I am just getting going myself with automated trading and back testing a few strategies. In order to use the API into IG do you have some special API client ? I am personally using PRT to get going but will probably switch to python once i get everything established.
  3. Agree - Is it not possible to start your own Thread here ? I don't seem to be able to do it myself but was wondering if that was because i was a new forum user. Anyway, i will PM you , perhaps we can swap some ideas.
  4. Ran into the same problem as tried to place multiple trades on Bitcoin the last two days and IG are not taking any new long positions as they have reached their maximum exposure. On a day when Bitcoin is up 20% in 1 day today / +2500 points, its frustrating. What i think is even worse is the way the minimum stop loss went from 80 pts to 200 pts then to 500 pts in 1 day , i don't agree with this and seems to me a way for people to add more risk to their positions. The spread already increased to 100 pts which is fine but i dont see why the min stop needs to be so large. Right now im just watching the money go by as BTC advances today. Whats funny is my wife, who i am just teaching to trade, traded it in her Demo account and made really great profits. Well done honey!
  5. Surprised there are not 100 replies to this thread. I have read all the above and my favorites are : 1. Trend Following by Michael Covel - Get this on Audible as this include around 20 live interviews with Trend Following CTAs at the end and i found these interviews even more valuable than the book itself. 2. The Complete Turtle Trader by Michael Covel 3. Trading In The Zone by Mark Douglas - Follow this up with the 2 hour you tube interview with Mark Douglas and this is a real gem. 4. Market Wizards and New Market Wizards - Both Gems 5. Chat With Traders Series - YouTube - Not a book but podcast interviews with real traders. 6. Trend Following Interviews (Michael Covel) - You Tube - Not a book but podcast interviews with real traders.
  6. Great - That works now. Had to use units on the graph to modify the back test time frame. For some reason if you chose some other time frame in the back test configuration window itself it doesnt work. You must set the graph to the time frame and in units. To clarify further if you set the graph to anything other than units i dont think this works for back testing , only for the chart display. So if you want to back test play with the unit size and you should get there . Thanks Yohan
  7. Hi Team, No matter what i do on Pro Real Time i only get 2 years of back test data ? Back test data only goes as far back as 2nd October 2015, i have tried setting a date and also using the chart areas which changes as normal but once i run the back test it reports my dates always from 2nd October 2015 to current date ?? Please advise. Yohan
