  1. Interesting article out today. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-04/blain-when-crunch-comes-markets-will-freeze-and-every-corporate-bond-planet-will-be Which one do you think it is ๐Ÿ˜‰
  2. Good idea! It's like buying coffee stocks in the winter ๐Ÿ˜‰
  3. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-02/bitcoin-slumps-below-10k-cme-futures-interest-soars-record-high People are clinging to hope, Whilst others are fighting to get to the exit. It's stuff like this that makes life exciting ๐Ÿ˜„
  4. https://github.com/tg12/SuperSmoother_example Some code for you to play with based on the Friedman's Super Smoother! Enjoy ;-) ๏ปฟ
  5. TA doesn't work with Crypto because the volumes are all fake and it's based on FOMO.
  6. This **** really needs reporting to the FCA and IPSO. https://www.ipso.co.uk/
  7. Rumor on the straz is that there is another dump coming along. 70-80% fall in price in the next 3 months. What with volume stuffing going on across most if not all major exchanges. People are pumping ... to dump. Bitcoin is a massive contrarian indicator to the real economy and look what's happening with stocks, There has been a melt up over the last week in stocks and for good reason too!.
  8. This is a prominent question for me also as a heavy user of the API, I feel that the documentation for this is lacking (On the API side) What do we need to set in the API to be able to hedge? I presume the first trade we would need to set Force Open to False, Then the hedge trade Force Open to True? However... [Constraint: If a limitDistance is set, then forceOpen must be true][Constraint: If a limitLevel is set, then forceOpen must be true][Constraint: If a stopDistance is set, then forceOpen must be true][Constraint: If a stopLevel is set, then forceOpen must be true][Constraint: If gua
  9. It's one of those Psychological things. There's lot's of books on Trading Psychology.
  10. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-03/it-begins-multi-billion-hedge-fund-blocks-redemptions Shorts are getting slaughtered today.
  11. Nice. Although a bit of professionalism wouldn't go a miss on an investment forum.
  12. Could literally be anything. Probably a stop loss too tight. But that was just the first answer from my crystal ball.
  13. Good Question, So The top is the NUMBER of Institutions holding short positions. The Bottom is the PERCENTAGE of capital. So ONE trader might hold an extraordinarily large position as an example, That would make it into the list. However multiple institutions might hold small percentage of trades making it into the list also. That's why I do a summary. The summary is an intersection of the lists to make sure that they are shorted by many and the percentage is high also. One trader might not necessarily be right but if multiple traders hold a lot of positions you can bet your dollar that it is
  14. This argument is as old as time itself. There is no right answer. Time, Discipline and proper money management are the three big things for me. It's took me almost a decade to become profitable. I know what my turning points were and what certainly helped with me. The two biggest helps were the Naked Trader and Stockopedia. Worth it though. Fascinating Subject if you get into it, Not just a get rich quick scheme. Albeit a shameless plug I release some of my trading algorithms I have played about with for free so people can take them, use them, change them and do what they like with
  15. There would be no dividend from the FTSE100. The FTSE100 is made up of the top 100 company's in the UK. Perhaps if you have share's in one or more of them you might be due a pay out. Check here. https://www.dividenddata.co.uk/dividend-payment-dates.py?m=ftse100
  16. Red means it would be down on the day, Green would mean its up on the day.
  17. Interesting thread, I've not read all of it granted BUT all I can say is this. If you are treating it as a get rich quick scheme then you are the fool. If you are doing it to learn it and make a good go of it and put the work in then it can be rather rewarding and you can have alot of interesting conversations with people along the way. I have been doing lots of investing over a decade and I still thoroughly enjoy it the same I did when I first started. Sure I have had some frustrating moments but just ask anyone who has not had a frustrating day in their life. Check my Github page
  18. Hi, Yes you are right. So I have made some minor tweaks to it, I count up the highest volume and highest number of investors and say pick the top 10. If the companies intersect both lists they are shorted multiple investors and a high percentage of their fund is short, They make the bottom list that is the summary list at the bottom. I am working on putting this into the API it automatically trades (shorts) for me on IG Index. Github is just just really a file-store for the purpose of this project. I am just using it as a central store so nothing special about Github in that
  19. I have released a project that will most likely be updated once or twice a day, The updates are self explanatory, A list of the most shorted stocks by Institutional Investors in the UK. Split up into how many institutional investors are short on a stock and by the volume and an amalgamated list of of most shorted stocks. https://github.com/tg12/most_shorted_stocks Again this is a series of my own projects. Not affiliated by IG and no guarantees etc. Feedback and comments welcome. Hope you enjoy it.
  20. I have released a Python fully automated Litecoin trading system, The idea is that the barrier to entry is quite low. A fun project for anyone wanting to get into trading Crypto or learning the IG Index API or programming. Take a look, It's free and open source and building on some of my other successful projects with the IG Index API. It is in no way affiliated with IG Index but a fun project that people can use to build up on. Take a look. https://github.com/tg12/F.A.L.T
  21. Scalping would by nye on impossible with IG. Even using the API it would be difficult.
  22. I am no stranger to criticism online but alas I do not let it deter me, I have some loyal followers and some interesting cool people behind me. I put out what I think. People are free to ignore it. People get pissy when there is money at steak.
  23. It took me a while to become ultimately profitable.
  24. Aye, Can do that. To be fair I mainly do stocks. I run a Discord group and Reddit thread to discuss trading/coding with the IG Index API.
