  1. BTW, I very much agree that back testing and live demo testing and live small lot testing really helps to develop strategy confidence and sets mental discipline and psychology. It also helps build up the account so that you can take larger position sizes with funds from the market rather than from your bank account. I struggled for years to find a way to back test strategies as it takes a very long time to do that manually. I recently discovered FXDreema. It's a logic tool which takes a little getting used to, but there are many instructions and videos to help. You use it to build your strategy as a set of logic steps and then the tool writes it as a coded EA robot for you which you can then run in either MT4 or MT5 in the strategy tester on historical data or on live data. No coding skills required, and you can get a free MT demo account through IG. This has significantly improved my trading. I highly recommend it. You can even use fxDreema for free for limited robot sizes.
  2. I move to breakeven when I get to 1R profit and then I follow price with a 1R gap. This means that I often get breakeven and also don't often get as much as is available in the market as I can be stopped out at lower profit levels. However, I regularly get 2, 3 R and sometimes much much more. Though I suspect I am more of an intraday trader and scalper than you, and this method protects my capital for another day. One thing I have been experimenting with is following price using the Parabolic SAR. 1H works well for intraday and swing trading I find. So, for example, when you got to 6R in your trade, you could move your stop closer to the price using either a fixed distance or the PSAR (or other indicator) and then still be in a position, and a profitable one, leaving yourself with the chance for the market to go on and hit your 8R target. By the way, I think 6 R is a very good trade. Congratulations on it.
  3. Hi, I am considering opening a Pro Real Time account. Before doing so I would like to use it as a Demo account. If I open a PRT Demo Account, do I still incur the £30 per month charge?
  4. Can you please post the swiss blue chip price
  5. This really is an unfortunate situation. It may well be just a capacity problem or other technical glitch, but the fact that I cannot find a message from IG to explain the situation is really galling and upsetting. I don't trade big and I rarely make money, but its my fun lockdown hobby and I would prefer to do that on a stable, reliable platform with clear customer service messaging when things go wrong. AM currently opening demo accounts with other regulated providers.
  6. On multiple occasions, after I have moved my stop loss towards the price to achieve breakeven or lock in some profit, the IG platform publishes the acceptance notification and then subsequently deletes the stop loss altogether... not just move it to a previously established position, but remove it all together! Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Is it an known issue? Has it been raised with technical support and is there anything being done about it?
  7. Hi, Did you ever get an answer on this? I was just wondering the same thing. Something like the F12 button on Meta Trader would be good.. and so simple to implement.
  8. It's a nice way to track performance over timeframes. Saves me having to pull historical data and plot my own charts. I can think of a few ways to add features, in addition to making it available on all platforms as previously requested. How about: - Ability to compare respective periods across months, quarters and years. Sometimes a particular time of year/month/week is more performant than others... would be good to see and analyze that at a glance. - Ability to personalize by adding ones own draw down and draw up levels - Ability to click a point on the chart a jump to the specific trade(s) that led to a tick up or tick down.
  9. The second the ECB press conference finished, and I entered my trade, suddenly the IG system stops displaying market data. Status page says everything is operational, but not for me. What is going on?
  10. The news feed on my trading views has not updated since the 24th August. Any idea how I can get it to restart?

    I see your long bias is paying off this week. The news tells me that the refined copper production outlook by Rio Tinto has been cut recently. So a potential shortage of supply. Do you think this is the reason for the recent surge upwards
  12. Am just trying to better understand my performance with the trade analytics tool and was wondering how often does the tool update with closed positions?

    Or maybe it is the even more special ship and inverted cup pattern.
