  1. What formula or method do you use to plan your Take Profit/Limit in number of pips? Curious to hear everyone's methods.
  2. Technical Analysis features in the API. I'd like to be able to query Support and Resistance Levels
  3. That would make sense as March was a HUGE deleveraging event. So alot of positions would have been liquidated.
  4. Anymore details, It might help us help you.
  5. My program dumps trades here for those who are interested. https://github.com/tg12/trading_algo_logs_info
  6. haha good point! It's been a long road but to be fair this was never where the bulk of my investments were, This was more of a hobby and beer money thing for me and a good way to learn thing and showcase my portfolio and talk about it to others. Anyway if you wanted to take a look this is where my algo dumps logs for trades. https://github.com/tg12/trading_algo_logs_info - This is a simple algo that looks at 3 day downtrends and SMA and puts trends on accordingly. https://github.com/tg12/most_shorted_stocks That is where the FCA by law has to publish a list of institutional investors that hold short positions. This downloads the spreadsheet that is updated at 3PM every day and then does a tally up. There has got to be some information useful in there somewhere.

  7. Yeah pretty much me exclusively. Check my post there’s some links on there. Can’t post much on here because on mobile. **** community page won’t work on Chrome on the desktop anymore.
  8. True, that’s why I wrote my own 😎😂 it’s taken me 4 years to fine tune mine and I have no intention of selling any of them.
  9. woah! Easy chaps (I presume) ... I just talked about my algo idea. Each to their own. I agree I have faced issues with a lot of things in Python. Some resolved by the IG Helpdesk but it works for me. Anywho. I will prepare a github repo with my code if anyone Interested. Perhaps people can contribute to the idea. I just wanted to see if anyone though it was a feasible idea
  10. Hi, I have been experimenting alot with the IG Index API. I find it easy to use. I have recently been toying with ideas for different algo's. I find the idea fascinating. Anyone got any thoughts on this from a mathematical point of view? Or anyone else interested in this stuff? Three consecutive down days 3 day SMA If the current price is below that 3 Day SMA then sell (There is a reason for the fundamental drop) if the current price is above the 3 Day SMA then Buy (It's held steady, There is support for it) I've coded this and testing it as we speak. If anyone is interested I will post on Github Link to Github Page Example Output. https://pastebin.com/tf26EMG6
  11. Why? You got hacked? They probably wont be able to recover anything.
