  1. I almost can't type the words for how stupid I am to still be here. I've lost a small fortune of my balance since i joined IG and not all of it is down to my failed Trading. I can't see the charts to open or close positions. I can't get thru on the phone and receive no replies on email. Yet I keep putting my money down. Someone **** shoot me already.
  2. This actually makes a lot of sense lo.. I've never considered simply Shorting on reversals. haha. Simple when you think about it.
  3. As usual a very thorough feedback breakdown there Daniel. Very impressive. I'm pretty sure you're only a few steps away from success. Looking forward to your next report.
  4. Let's hope this is the end of it then.
  5. Hi, My Share dealing is going far better than my Spread Betting. I put about £800 in share dealing to see if I could notice a difference. However, I made some rash trades early on. Then, the my account grew on Virgin from $16 to $28 where I took the profit. I grew the account to £1200, but it came down to £1000 as I sold other Stock. I added another £400 to make a total on £1400. I've bought and sold so many times I've given a lot of profit back in commissions. On the whole, I'm where I started. £800 +£400 = £1200. My account is actually @ £1245 as of now, but is down 13%. Total Book cost is £1445. Spread betting the same I'd be wiped out already. I think Fine Tuning on Share Dealing is far more preferable and wise than learning Spread Betting and actually losing. Since November, here's what I've seen and missed. Virgin Galactic @ $6.50 went to $42. I bought after the drop at $16.50 and got out @ $25 Velocys Plc at 2.5p and missed it go to 16p. Got in at 6.5p on the pullback and back out again @ 10p. Novavax @ $7.50, got out at $10 only for it to go to $15 overnight then on to $170. FML! This week i was in Fusion Antibodies @100p, it opened up next day and I got out at 50% profit, only to watch it go to 150%. So yeah. Share dealing is sooo slow compared to Spread Betting. It's too difficult to get in and out quickly. The platform is limited. I've not been able to put a Stop in place before I place the trade. I'm literally looking for a workaround now. I'm also looking at other platforms to use.
  6. Check your internet. No-one else is having a problem. Must be your end.
  7. I've been watching Nokia for a couple weeks. Went to Buy shares just now. Rejected. Why don't they put this on the ticket in the 1st place?????
  8. I know. I question my motives every day to no resolve. ha
  9. It's a good question that I've not found and answer to. I remember vaguely last year a stock went from 3 to 15pts spread!!! It was a Bad Day. As I was getting in and out of the trade, i was being stopped out immediately because of the fluctuation...
  10. Hi, I've not encountered many issues at all with slippage. Sure it happens at times of huge volatility, so if you're Day Trading off the Bell, it's more likely to happen then. Also, Too Tight of a Stop can get you out prematurely more often than not while Spread Betting as the Spread can be considerable and variable. If I place a Stop it's usually 2x the Spread OR 2x the Spread below or above the SR lines. However, this being said, it depends on your Strategy also. In 18 months of Day Trading or chart analysis, I've encountered slippage once on an Uber Drop last year.
  11. ...If you could also ad the VWAP too, and the ability to search thru the shares list by % moved that would be great.
  12. Hi, Charlotte. Can I add to this and ask why I can't add a Stop/Sell order on Powerhouse Energy Group in in my Share Dealing account? Thanks. I also can't remove my Limit/Take Profit from Supply@ME Capital PLC. Spread Betting.
  13. Can anyone tell me why I can't put a Stop Limit Order on some of my Shares?
  14. THIS IS **** INSANE! My Stop Orders have disappeared too! WTF!
  15. This isn't a threat, it's simply a mission statement. I'm looking for a new broker and platform. This is a joke! I've lost almost a 1/4 of my capital to platform issues over the last 18 months. I've another thread open asking why I can't remove my Limit from my open position.
  16. Hi as in title. Have i missed something in the 18 months of trading? It's possible. I've had this a few times in my time here with IG where I've prematurely taken profit and the trade has closed, even though I've removed the Limit beforehand. I've either set a Limit to take profit, Moved it or tried to Delete it, but I get a message saying i can't. I can't remove a Limit/Take profit from my chart.
  17. Announced on Twitter. Sorry for Problems. All sorted now!
  18. hahaha, now my % has gone missing from my Portfolio stats.................................................Throws hands in the air!
  19. Ah man I think there's something in the air. I feel it in my bones. I'm cashing my chips in and getting out of Vegas!
  20. Erm...............................Where's the US Indicies? 😮 It's back at 15.12 hahahha WAdaFERK
  21. Several countries already officially in Recession. this could be the big one. Get your bags ready............If you can access the **** charts that is!
  22. As soon as US opened it went down. I've been on all morning!
  23. Nothing is loading. Not even IG itself. Everything else is fine. If they DO load, they've defaulted AGAIN, but charts won't load. WTF is going on now? Don't tell me....It's my end!! Have I called? ****....Why would I do that? to be ignored. To tell me to check my internet? Why the hell am I still here???????
