  4. Hi Martino. I can certainly help with some. Opening level - The price at which your trade was opened at. Current level - The price at the current time as given by the market. The price change of the instrument, usually on a daily basis but you can get it over longer terms. i.e the stock has risen 4% today from it's close price yesterday. Running profit/loss - The difference you have from opening to now. If it's gone up and you are long profit, If it's gone down and you are short profit. Deposit required - Regulations dictate the margin required now in the
  5. This happens ALL the time, Especially to newer traders. Look anywhere on the internet and you will find countless examples. There's loads of ways to combat this. Don't use Guaranteed Stops, Setting an appropriate Stop Distance for your trade. It comes with practice my friend. Don't trade round NFP day unless you really know what you are doing etc.

  9. This would be a good little project to develop with the API, When the spread drops alerting tool.
  10. Is that the Granary Bread Coin or the Wholemeal coin? 🤣🤣🤣
  11. Calm down everyone, I can assure you that any losses you incur would not have been down to IG. You should always practice good money management!
  12. https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/news/teesside-news/sirius-minerals-could-handed-government-16859137 Presented without comment. Could be a good boost for those of you who are in SXX.
  13. You are only allowed 10 sessions on the streaming API if I remember rightly. Check you are not going over that. How are you managing your connections in your code? Do they go down cleanly?
  14. However much you want it to be, Per point. It's up to you to set your budget.
  15. I have extensive experience working with the IG Index API. Infact I love doing it. Checkout my various projects on Github https://github.com/tg12/FAIG - Flagship project, But there are alot of other little scripts on there for other purposes. I run my short stocks on almost exclusively. and also https://labs.ig.com/ The documentation and support is top notch. What kind of thing do you want to do?
  16. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-08-24/copper-plunges-115-week-low-global-macro-deteriorates Could be.
  17. Honestly, If you are trading on any Trump tweets you are doing something seriously wrong.

  19. Obviously, When the law suits hit when they eventually get the planes back in the air.
  20. Yeah try the API if you want it. https://labs.ig.com/rest-trading-api-reference/service-detail?id=530 If you want something I could code it up.
  21. No music, All my trading is automated these days on a server in the cloud. Or at least 99% of it is. I do like to have a bit of excitement now and again.
  22. Posted this over else where. Lined up perfectly for a rally! https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-08-07/goldman-sees-gold-rising-1600-or-even-higher-escalating-trade-war-1 It literally needs a bit of a nudge from some bad news, So we are on track for 1580 this week at least.
