  2. hi  This is a splendid idea !!! Well done Happy days
  3. from Reuters - London Stock markets in Europe and Asia rose and oil prices jumped on Wednesday after Chinese trade data cooled concerns over the world's second biggest economy, steadying money and currency markets in Shanghai and Hong Kong. Japan's Nikkei index jumped 2.6 percent and Europe's main markets gained (FTSE) <.GDAX> (FCHI) after China reported exports dipped just 1.4 percent in U.S. dollar terms in December, compared to forecasts of an 8-percent drop. A 4-percent fall in imports was also much smaller than many had feared, but the reaction was not uniformly positive

  6. From Investing.com 1. China stocks plunge again Chinese stocks markets plunged again on Monday, with the Shanghai Composite Indexand the CSI300 Index both closing down more than 5% despite efforts by Beijing to stabilize the market. Last week, the Shanghai Composite lost all of its 2015 gains, falling by 10% in just five days. The rest of Asia also closed down, with markets in Australia and Hong Kong both closing deep in the red. 2. Europe and U.S. markets look to shake off latest slide in China European stocks saw a more steady start on Monday, with Germany’s DAX gaining ground as
  7. hi - part of the the welcome note on the SA based platform still shows this ; "Seasonal opening hours 2015 Thurs 24 Dec - Half day in most markets Fri 25 Dec - All markets closed Sun 27 Dec - Normal opening hours" Happy 2016 all !!!!!
  8. According to Reuters ; SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Oil prices surged during the start of 2016 trading as relations between top crude producers Saudi Arabia and Iran deteriorated, raising concerns about potential supply disruptions, though weak Asian manufacturing data kept a lid on bullish expectations. Saudi Arabia, the world's biggest oil exporter, cut diplomatic ties with Iran on Sunday in response to the storming of its embassy in Tehran. The diplomatic row between the two major oil producers escalated following Riyadh's execution of a prominent Shi'ite cleric on Saturday. Global oil be
  9. From Bloomberg ; Chinese stock trading was halted for the rest of the day after the CSI 300 Index plunged more than 7 percent. Trading of shares and index futures was halted from about 1:34 p.m. local time, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Stocks fell as manufacturing contracted for a fifth straight month and investors anticipated the end of a ban on share sales by major stakeholders. Under the mechanism, which only became effective Monday, a move of 5 percent in the CSI 300 triggers a 15-minute halt for stocks, options and index futures, while a move of 7 percent closes the mark
  10. Mainly from Investing.com ; West Texas Intermediate oil futures are on track to post an annual decline of 31% in 2015, while Brent oil prices are down nearly 36% this year, as oversupply concerns dominated market sentiment for most of the year. Global crude production is outpacing demand following a boom in U.S. shale oil and after a decision by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries last year not to cut production in order to defend market share. Crude oil for delivery in February on the New York Mercantile Exchange inched up 15 cents, or 0.42%, to trade at $36.75 a
  11. hi  - indeed and I am also of te opinion that it will continue to rise... Happy days
  12. hi  - well, it is 4 months later - I also trade EUR against USD and GBP often - the scenario is always unstable and really volatile - I would say a little less volatility when GBP is weighed against the EUR. I can certainly see why this is the preferred trade. There are always activity influencing these three tremendously. Do you trade on strategic or fundemental analysis? I find that the fundemental analysis works best here. Keep your ear to the ground concerning news and announcements and finger on the "submit trade" trigger Today the EUR/GBP is at 0.72634 and the EUR/USD at 1.098
  13. hi  - just for interest's sake - I am eating my words of September hey - the future and unpredictability.......oil is falling like a leaf - I am wondering what the impact of the Paris Climate talks will be on OIL? Happy days
  14. hi  - thank you very much - appreciate it a lot Happy days
  15. As if Gold needs more pressure - not good for Gold Bulls Mostly from Investing.com ; Gold futures fell sharply on Monday, but still stuck in familiar trading range, as market players prepared for the first U.S. rate hike since 2006 later this week. The Federal Reserve is widely expected to raise interest rates for the first time in nearly a decade at the conclusion of its two day policy meeting at 2:00PM ET on Wednesday. The central bank will also release its latest forecasts for economic growth and interest rates. Fed Chair Janet Yellen is to hold what will be a closely-watch
  16. The heading should be " weakly outlook" Most from Investing.com; Oil prices crashed to fresh seven-year lows on Friday, after a bearish report from the International Energy Agency projected that a global supply glut could worsen next year. In its December oil market report released Friday, the Paris-based IEA projected global demand growth in 2016 to slow considerably, widening the gulf in the supply-demand imbalance worldwide. Next year, the IEA anticipates that global demand will grow by 1.2 million barrels per day, down from a previous estimate of 1.8 million. “As inventori
  17. The Sweden 30 Index on the Sprint Market option seems to be unavailable - did the trading hours change or is it inactive for trade (I noticed this from about 2-3 weeks ago) ?? Happy days
  18. here we are - 30 Nov 2015 and at the moment the GBP/USD is ready to fall through 1.5004 - never thought that it would go there - the "big drop" certainly did occur.... happy days
  19. I think the EUR is heading for parity with the USD.....
  20. Does anybody know why GOLD dissapeared from the "Popular Markets" watchlist? Happy days all
  21. hi  - also looking forward to Monday, LOTS of activity expected hey...saw this report early today, from Angus Nicholson, IG Melbourne... ASX The move in metals markets over the past few days has been welcomed by the battered materials sector. The pullback in the US dollar has also been a boost to energy and materials sectors. The good performance of European markets (US markets were closed for Thanksgiving) also helped set the ASXup for a strong start. Good buying for the banks helped the index throughout most the day, but poor data out of China and Japan and a further weakening of the
  22. hi  - just updated the app a few days ago and I must say this is a great help, although I do not trade extensively from my phone, the need arises - last week we had days where the ADSL lines were mucked and I had to execute from my phone using 3G. I do use the Signal Centre, so - it is a great comfort having it on my phone now - thanks for always GROWING and acknowledging needs and improvements to the (already amazing) system. happy days
  23. hi  - yes, I like the " I don't recommend trading like that either - yet if you ever have to or want to, IG can." - well said. Thought I would share this from Angus Nicholson, IG Market Analyst in Melbourne... ASX The banks have helped drive the ASX back above 5200. ANZ ’s American Depositary Receipt (ADR) rose 1.26% overnight pointing to a decent session today on the ASX. Financials had a strong session rising 1%. But almost all sectors bar materials and energy were up on the day. BHP’s ADR was savaged overnight losing 3.5% despite no major moves in the commodities market. The st
  24. hi  - the possibility certainly increased substantially over the past week. I am going to stick to my original "no", the majority FED role players seem dovish and I think they will probably start the year with something like that opposed to end it with a rate hike? Personal opinion - they are creating a hype - and it works, everybody uses the term "FED rate hike" more Happy days
  25. I agree Rich - but confidence seems to be returning? Today the spread between Brent and US is 6.47% - with Brent Crude at $ 49.23 - I would say confidence is growing? Happy days
