  1. All red again this morning, S&P500 already in a 86 point range for the day! IG clients generally optimistic, long most major markets: Built using https://www.excelpricefeed.com
  2. Thanks for that explanation, I was thinking more about holding until expiry. I'm building a spreadsheet to visualise how the premiums move throughout the day and in relation to the market...no revelations so far!
  3. Just looking options on IG for the first time... If you buy the 26680 put at 101 then to make money you need the market to drop 246 points (to the strike at 26680) + 101 to cover your costs, so a net drop of 347 points (to 26579) before you start making a profit?
  4. It must be a problem with the Demo system, I am not seeing any daily Wall Street options on Demo, but I can see them on Live.
  5. Thought I would take a closer look at oil. It's the usual story, here is the oil price (orange) vs client long sentiment (blue). As the price dropped from the start of the year clients have been loading up their long positions:
  6. Not much movement around this morning, IG clients still long cryptos and oil, short indices and the USD: Powered by Excel Price Feed
  7. So TSLA up over 20% today. I've just updated one of my spreadsheets, interesting to see how the "upstart" manufacturer is getting close to Toyota to gain the number 1 spot by market cap!
  8. Stock price vs IG Clients % long positions over last few months. As the stock started moving up less clients went long, with a big drop last week as the stock rose even more. And the last few days as the stock has popped higher clients are now shifting back into long positions. At the moment it's up over 3% in the pre-market. Data provided by Excel Price Feed
  9. Lots of red this afternoon, stock indices and the dollar at day range lows. Only winner today is gold: Built using https://www.excelpricefeed.com
  10. S&P500 breaks through 3,300 and DJIA through 29,000. USD, gold and oil flat with cryptocurrencies weaker: Built using https://www.excelpricefeed.com
  11. Not too shabby, about at 32% return over the year...Donald will be happy.
  12. Yep, me too. I am one of those clients that went short as the market went up...looking back going long (and holding) at any point in the past 6 months would have been profitable. Trying to pick turning points is almost impossible, the trend is your friend...easier said than done though as you start to think "it can't possibly go any higher, must drop soon..."
  13. I don't like to hijack this thread, but IG clients have been mainly short for the past 6 months, and more than 2/3rds short since the S&P500 crossed 3000 back in October. As the market goes down clients go long and as the market goes up clients go short:
  14. Equity markets stronger, USD mixed, Gold down, oil flat and cryptocurrencies weaker. IG Clients still short equities, long gold, long oil, and long cryptos:
  15. I can send you the template if you want, you then just need to install the Add-in in order to use the formulas in the sheet for streaming prices. The Add-in is $10 a month: https://www.excelpricefeed.com Here's the current sheet:
