  1. @dmedin It is looking good and I still feel like GE haven't taken enough steps to deal with the allegations i.e. send their lawyers after the accuser. There seems to be a lot of directors of GE going on air trying to convince investors that all is OK, but the investors seem to be becoming more and more concerned. The CEOs purchase of shares gave it a slight sugar rush but that seems to be wearing off.
  2. @Mercury Potentially the trade to focus on would be the contagion i.e. ETFs and funds setup with exposure to GE, but it appears that none really have more than 3% portfolio exposure. https://www.etf.com/stock/GE I wonder what the other potential collateral damage may be.
  3. Hi All, Havent seen any chatter on the GE mystery, keen to get peoples views on this? My 2 cents = the accuser has a huge problem if the allegations of fraud are incorrect, potentially for both market manipulation and for defamation, never mind the legal case GE would take out against his firm. He has also gone to the police with some "evidence", if found to be false he could also be in trouble for filing a false police report. Granted the guy has some skin in the game with a hedge fund, but you have to ask yourself whether the risk reward would justify him from taking such a h
  4. Thanks @JamesIG For orders, have the news feed.
  5. Hi @JamesIG Any idea whether it's possible to add a tape ticker on the web platform? Cheers
  6. Its not having any of it, I am in Demo CFD so perhaps this is where it's going wrong?
  7. Maybe I am daft but I cant find Boeing on the IG platform?
  8. It's taken me over a year of demo account trading to "perfect" a strategy that is proving profitable on a weekly basis... I'm in this for the long run, so really no rush to get into the markets, but I think I am just about ready to enter the "real world". One of the major lessons I learnt over the year (beyond what has already been mentioned above), PATIENCE! Literally sitting watching the ticker for the right time to enter the trade has been key, you may miss a trade or two, but in the long run its pays to see confirmation in trend before taking on the risk. Oh, and when I say a yea
  9. @Caseynotes and @TrendFollower I was pondering the Volume indicator on IGs platform, I assume this is this based on volume of CFD contracts/shares and not a reflection of the market? This seems to be the case with commodities, but when I see the volume of millions of shares I wonder if it is in fact based on the market?
  10. All just completely off whack, showing Hong Kong 50 down 9.5%. I thought the world was ending when I logged on!
  11. Hi IG, There appear to be some issues with the Indices on the Demo account. Cheers
  12. @JamesIG thanks for clarifying! Sounds like good business to me, whats the price per share for IG
  13. Just to add to this, I was under the impression that IG do not take opposite positions from our trades, instead they simply broker them? A slight concern is that if IG are taking the position in the opposite direction, and they control the software... there clearly would be a high level of conflict of interest. Maybe @JamesIG can elaborate a bit on this?
  14. Thanks @TrendFollower and @Caseynotes I have a trading strategy in place that is proving to be good for me in the demo, it relies on momentum and diverging moving averages. I'm never looking for the 20% profits, more so looking for consistency and the ability to reach a target daily/weekly $ profit rate. Thanks again for all your advice on the forum
  15. HI All Just want to give a quick shout out to @Caseynotes and @TrendFollower, after some suggestions on reading materials and research I have managed to develop a trading strategy that seems to be working for me on a higher probability level than what I was doing before. I am still very much trading on Demo but am confident enough to start my "migration" to the real world! I thought a good topic to discuss (and I tried to find a thread with this info already) is a discussion around the trading desk setups that some of our more experienced traders are using. This is purely from a begi
  16. There seems to be an issue with the Demo trading system, its 50 minutes into the marketing and all of the shares seem to be inactive. I've tried logging out and back in a refreshing my browser with no luck.
  17. Hi @TrendFollower and @Caseynotes (chat wont let me tag you??) As always thanks for the insight and details. Do you guys know of any stock scanner like FinViz etc to search through EU and UK stocks? My research only basically says no to this question. The reason I ask is because since you guys gave me some great advice recently, my trading has improved in that I am more accurately spotting trades with a higher success rate. Still not 100% profitable but I think this is down to over trading (trying to force trades and setups). At the moment my pre-market research involves cl
  18. Thank you again for your help @Caseynotes, I'll give there resources a go and will let you know how I get on!
  19. Thanks @Caseynotes My best results have been trading shares and weekly trading (well more like 2-3 days). I found though that my trades would be profitable and within 2-3 days the market would turn and my stop loss would be triggered. I've tried leaving the stop loss where it was placed at the start of the trade and also adjusting my stop loss while trades are profitable. I found that I wasn't losing and wasn't making money, so tried playing around with my Risk:Reward ratios but the higher I adjusted the Reward aspect the more often I would stopped out as soon as the market turned. I
  20. Hi All, I am fairly new to the forum, but have been using the IG Demo system since February this year. The journey has been extremely educational as I have traded various strategies and have learnt a lot from online videos etc. My problem is that I have tested various strategies, sometimes I will knock the ball out the park one week and then the next 3 weeks I will destroy my account following exactly the same strategy. I am seriously looking for a mentor that can help me find a strategy that will allow me to find consistency. There are a host of mentors/gurus out there who
