  1. They have a few other 'special reports' https://www.ig.com/uk/special-reports
  2. Also here which is interesting https://www.ig.com/uk/special-reports/best-trading-books
  3. that wasn't your original reason for outrage. You were going on about trading on 'insider information' of sorts, which I just showed you was complete nonsense. as a completely separate point, completely unrelated to anything you were originally talking about, yes, money in American politics is disgusting, and I think the whole system is rotten from the core out. That has nothing to do about a politicians financial advisor selling 0.6% of her portfolio prior to the market sell off. If you don't pick your battles on who and how you moan, people start to pay less attention to you. Easily refutable statements like what you originally stated actively harm the more important ones...
  4. whilst I understand its 2020 and everyone feels a need to be constantly outraged on headline "news" pieces without really stopping for one moment to think, you should still go that extra mile and try and use your brain. On top of that, She sold $3m in shares. Shes worth $500m. These are probably big numbers which you're outraged at, but if you think someone who was really trying to sell on fears of an economic recession and the impact of covid19, don't you think they'd sell more than 0.6% of their net worth...? It's the same as you having £1000 invested in the stock market, and selling off six quid. EDIT: Not republican, but quite enjoy sanity and facts. #votebernie
  5. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70I7a_jN6VM What companies have high cash reserves which are going to be needed once this is resolved? Who has decent dividends and decent cash flow who are going to get through this? We DONT want cash strapped non-necessities - leisure, hotel, restaurants, retail etc.
  6. you're right IV is huge - just look at the VIX, its absurd. sell far dated buy the dailys
  7. very intersting and useful. thnkas EDIT: but like you said - i thought there was danger for children/babies and the elderly?
  8. GUYs cover yourself! looking at indices both US and UK think about buying a put. I go fo dailies as they're so much cheaper as expiry is close (we're all day traders aren't we). On the FTSE this OTM put is 53.6 points. Basically 50 quid to cover yourself if you're already long. Maybe i should make a new thread
  9. It’s not ideal that’s for sure but what can ya do or saxo offer but god **** thur platform is ****
  10. Check their balance sheet then rethink what you’ve just said... heck just check the website bit under The first tab about Your money
  11. You can trade these over the phone givw them a call
  12. Step 1 - buy daily puts at the start of the session 1% out the money (basically above the line on the platform) step 2 - profit *nb: vast over valuation of stocks required and exponential growth on nCoV deadly virus V useful discuss....
  13. Guess they need the whole number of shares on share platform?
  14. interesting. the whole data feed thing with the new platform is so poor tho and complex. We really want to just flick it on in the platform - or see delayed prices for example. Also ETF's aren't great. You want to search for SPY - the most liquid and heavily traded ETF in the world and you get this why in this order? I have to go 5th one down to find it (and even then that's only because I know the rough price of it at the moment. Anyone else would go for the top one, which is a weird Australian dollar version? and god know about all the rest...
  15. errr yes you're right. Do you have any working orders or open positions taking up margin? On the plus side it's now 0.89 to open so you've saved yourself 10%
  16. you can short on spread betting and CFD trading ? or I can.
  17. buy daily puts! the benefits of options. takes the emotion out of it. nicely sets up the trade for the da.y
  18. investment webpage is full of this stuff, https://www.ig.com/uk/investments/news/investing/2018/03/27/how-compounding-works-to-supercharge-your-investments but then the share dealing platform doesn't allow automatic dividend reinvestment.
  19. Don't fall for it. Don't try and catch a falling knife. Manage your risk - use stops and guaranteed stops for the love of god if you're looking to hold stocks over night or ANYTHING over the weekend. If you're in to intraday trading think about options (my thing of late - check post history if you want) which manage risk when buying and stop you chasing losses. Get those alerts and notifications set up on your phone. Diversify a portfolio with some defensive stuff as well. Read read read read read the news people. Take a step back. Think about it. Actively say you're going to cut the emotion. ONLY THEN make your trade. Never risk more than you could lose. Any other things which would help? Lets share over this economic mardi gras...
  20. Would anyone find it useful if they post their market and the direction and I put an option to it...? NOT ADVICE!!!! Just may be interesting
