  1. Yes I know those too well!! Back to square one I think for me. Thanks for the pointers again @TrendFollower and thanks @andysinclair.
  2. Apologies if this is in the wrong section.... Looking for recommendations on courses/tutoring etc to learn trading basics, I’ve been reading loads, watching numerous videos, YouTube anything and everything basically and all I’ve managed to do is lose 15k in 3 months! Unfortunately my pockets aren’t bottomless and I would like to try and start earning some of that back, I do seem to do ok then all of sudden it’s gone and back down well beyond what I started on. Any pointers as to where to look with a more interactive teaching would be very much appreciated.
  3. I am indeed in the SW, yes I have learnt now not to trade from my phone or on the IG platform but use PRT. If I set up trailing stops on there they then show as trailing on the IG app, but still can’t set them up on the app.
  4. UK based myself as well, using PRT I get trailing stops but using the new IG platform I don’t seem to get trailing. Strange how I can on one but not the other, haven’t had chance to test it yet as I’m still not managing to shake off my losing streak ☺️

    Crude Oil (WTI)

    Yep caught me out and I certainly felt that one!
  6. I’m on spreadbetting and on the deal sheet or orders it only allows none, normal and guaranteed.
  7. Although I have this turned on it doesn’t appear to give me that option, is there something more I have to do to use this function?
  8. Both simple MA and EVA are used, do have volume on which I do take note of when entering to look for increased activity will add RSI in to the equation to help. There I think lies the issue, I need to learn some patience and not expect it to happen instantly, stop losses are usually added but struggle to get them trailing although that is set on the app. Thank you both for the excellent advice! I need to rethink my strategy and start small, as this isn’t ever supposed to be my main income any profit is profit and allows me to stay in the game a little longer.
  9. Looking for a few words of wisdom from the seasoned traders, I have been playing at being a trader now for only around 3 months. Thinking I know it all and It can’t be that hard I went in headfirst and lost a few ££££s, realising maybe I should actually put my Uni education to some use I then started to read a little and lost more money! Now I have been reading a lot more and have taken note of various threads on here with regards to different strategies such as trend following, scalping etc and now I’m losing slightly less money. My question is with regards to the various indicators which I have been trying to employ like the Boolean and MA indicators, as I understand it they basically work on the principle of if it goes over the MA line in either MA or Boolean then you hedge your bet on that direction. I have been doing this but more often than not it does stay in the direction and I lose money, is this the normal case and it’s just a case of working the averages or am I doing something completely wrong? Then secondly how do you know when to jump out, I seem to leave early then watch it carry on up for ages. This leads to me getting trigger happy jumping back in just to have it reverse and yes lose more money! Any help and pointers would be most welcome even if it’s links to where to read more .
  10. Is there an issue with the App, numerous times now I have had trades close with a loss even though on the charts its showing well within stop limits?
  11. My apologies James I thought I had logged in. Hopefully have now! I have attached a couple of screen shots for references.
