  1. Is anyone else having problems opening charts on their mobile app? Hi there, I think it'd be nice to have a feature to close a position at market at a specific, customizable time (for example 21:59:59, just before spreads widen in the DAX). Would be useful for intraday traders that want to close positions at stop/target/close of underlying market without having to be at the screen.

  3. Please could some one explain why there is access to an MT4 platform when you log on to the web account but you can not close or open trades or is there something wrong with my computer? I tried to close a bad trade the other day by logging in through the IG website into MT4 I was not allowed to close the trade and resulted in my account being margined "Your order was rejected!!!!"
  4. In the email from IG about the ESME changes, they talk about a "slightly amended 50% margin close out rule". I was wondering if James or anyone else from IG has more information for us on that? An example of what it will mean would be great.
  5. Indicators alone do not make trading signals. Each trader must define the exact method in which the indicators will be used to signal trading opportunities and to develop strategies. Indicators can certainly be used without being incorporated into a strategy; however, technical trading strategies usually include at least one type of indicator.
  6. Interesting video on scalping. It shows the video recording of a live trade that was turned into an educational video for trainees at a prop firm. The trading takes place on the price ladder with a running commentary and explanations by the educator having debriefed the trader. The trader was looking to scalp 20 tick with 248 Lots but midway through an unscheduled breaking news event plunged the trade deep under water. The educator explains the traders rationale on how he set about trying to save the trade. Not for the faint hearted and certainly a 'don't try this at home' unless you really know what you are doing.
  7. There are many heath benefits of automating trade signal indicators.They provide you with precise signals based on automated trading analysis.These are designed by a real trader. Sitting at a desk takes 10 years off a trader's life, the healthy option is to automate and live a much healthier life.Enjoy the 10 pence a point trading and trade from your yachts.
  8. Day trading success rate is <1 % of traders make any money,according detailed searches on google, by searching for success rate of day traders.Scalping is even riskier, because the scalper risks more and takes small profits.Would the trader not be better off, trading longer term and swing trading?
