  1. I've had probl;ems all year with Live and demo and for the last month also like everyone else. I'm down about £350 over the year thru the inability to Close a Trade or Amend a Stop. Today the charts froze for 20 minutes. I had 2 charts open on the same instrument and both on the 2m. Both showing Bid price. Candles different on both, P/L showing different than what's on the chart also. Manually refreshing every 2 minutes or so, only for it to have been closed at a loss again. Currently on the phone to IG for 30 mins and counting. I'm expecting the usual. Restart computer, refresh empty cache, check internet, computer problems, not enough power, ram etc.etc.etc.
  2. I lost my nerve on Nova for an overnight position. I was already under £200 with a £400 account, and got a Margin Call, but it returned to only have me under £100. I left it overnight. I had a target price of $12 and I was in at $10. I was filled with too much doubt and got out of the trade for -£80 and lost £20 on another trade. So then I'm at £300. I had every faith in Nova going up, and just before the bell I had my finger over the Buy button, but held back.. Pre-market next day was up to $15........Missed out of £500. then I was so down, blew another £200 in 2 days leaving me with only £97. Placing micro trades I'm up to £118 today, but really feeling the loss this time as It was right there at my fingertips...Big Sigh.....
  3. I've somehow lost you on FB pal, not really sure why........ I took a heavy loss on Novavax just before the spike up and almost blew it all. still in the game. I never was quite sure of your half, but it's clearly working out. Well done!
  4. There is a minimum of £100 to withdraw and minimum Deposit of £250.
  5. Hi, tried logging in just now and a very unfamiliar window popped up in plain Roman Numeral Text. Big Bold title..: Are your Detaisl up to day... No other information about why or why other than saying Legislation requires......... All my info, name address email is there, etc.... Very random very odd. Anyone else had this today?
  6. Half blown. Can't take another hit like today....Could be all over for me this week.
  7. Hi, I'm sure this is just another gap in my knowledge, but I have a trade running over the weekend that had a Stop in place...I've opened my chart today and tried to move the Stop and now it has disappeared and I can't place another on the chart....The market is closed as it's US. Can anyone explain to me the Stop behaviour after hours please? or point me to the relevant info? Retail Platform.
  8. Well done pal.....I think you've done a great job of working thru your strategy and come a very solid result. I personally have the opposite problem where I let my winners run Too Long, often coming back to Break Even...OR too tight a Stop. However, I have an average of 1:4 PL, but I'm 30/70 on my winning Trades.... I went Live 3 weeks ago with £500 and managed to stay in the game at above or below this level. I could have literally grown the account to double in the first week, but didn't take the profit. What I've figured is that because I'm trading with a small account, I'm not recognising the Profit when it's there. What I mean is, I might only be trading at 24ppp, so £10 profit isn't lighting up my eyes....where as it's often 1:4 PL. I'm currently Long on Novavax but had a Margin call on Friday before Market Close... I'll know today If my account is Blown!
  9. No idea....I Day trade Scalping. I'm in and out in seconds or minutes....Don't have the time to check... It's basically a failed system that hasn't improved since I've been using it for 12 months..... As clearly pointed out by other forum users, I'm a fool to still be using it.!
  10. You assume what is happening is not by design.....on the surface your advice and reasoning is sound...... But underlying it all is the fallacy that it was working OK in the first place. The gains represent the absolute corruption of the world..... The only way the Indices figures could be true is if we were all wealthy and secure.......and clearly, we're not. the world is imbalanced by not only Capitalism, but the corruption of Capitalism in light of Fiat Currency and a non- Gold backed system.. Globalism cannot go on......It's quite simple on paper!.
  11. This^ The world Capitalist Globalist economy failed well before 2008....it's just took that long for it to effect.....that last 12 years is the delayed reaction. It needs to come to an end!
  12. I understand that pal. I too have have doubt while shorting for the same reason; like I'm adding to the problem and bringing it all down...But it's a house of cards anyway....maybe it needs a strong breeze to rebuild it..... the economy can't continue. 2008 happened and it's taken 12years for anyone to realise. Either way, you've done well to get your coin back. I've literally made a 20% loss on my account again. Old habits of not following Trends (as discussed here). Even now on the FTSe, i keep giving it back expecting it to bounce and return to Resistance.....Everytime it takes another sum.... A reset is still good though. Time to find the bottom on a few good stock. I've a watchlist in place.
  13. Can anyone tell me for the Love of God, when Trading Stops on the FTSE???? AND where to find such information int he future? Thanks
  14. Never mind, it was Suspended thru Volatility....would be nice to know that on the screen. Go Green Candle Go!
  15. Anyone get Phunware charts up? I have a Long position open....Now reporting Market Closed!!
  16. I was about to look for the number but seems I'll be wasting my time. I've had two charts change the Stop loss on me in two days.......Only for 5 mins to pass and realise the positions have closed at a loss, even though I've moved my Stop above my Buy in, or to Break Even.........
  17. I have my own post on this today. Couldn't amend Stop OR Close Trade. Info was actually missing from the chart.....refreshed the page and the trade was over......at a loss. It's not the first time it's happened in 12 months either. More fool me I guess, but i will be bringing it up with IG as I screen recorded it.
  18. As in title not only can I not move my Stop lower to limit risk, I also cannot Close Trade. I moved my Stop lower and let it go. It stayed there for about 3 seconds, then the screen refreshed and the Stop went back to where it was. Not only this, I then couldn't Close the Trade......I also need to constantly refresh the page to see Candles moved against me and Volume data that was missing. My Open Ticket position is now missing from the chart so who knows where it is!!! I've been stopped out without any knowledge on screen......as of 13.34pm
  19. I don't know what to do myself I can't amend my stop in a running trade. I move it, it stays there for a few seonds then goes back to where it was!!!!! Maybe I've missed something in the Academy lessons?
  20. Problem with Live Retail here too still. Manually refreshing every minute or two to see volume and candle movement.
  21. That Halt took a few quid off me
