  1. Hi everyone, I have a question? I am looking for live streaming up to date news like Bloomberg or CNBC; is there any other stations I can tune into? has to be via the net though? I do like to listen to Bloomberg and CNBC at the closing bell and during the day to keep up to date and possible trades looks. However, when you listen to Bloomberg on the net, now you only get half an hour before they want a subscription.... Regards Trev
  2. Good morning, Can anyone shed some light on this subject, please? So I have switched to Aussie CFD account however I have noticed when buying stocks I get charged a commission of £10 per trade and I will be liable for tax as well. So what are the benefits compared to spread betting and CFDs? Hence why I am with CFDs now is because Aussie account does not offer spread betting, will they be bringing that option in soon? Regards Trev
  3. Are very good question as I will be opening an Aussie account soon? I guess the advantage is lower margins overall... Let me know. TreV
  4. You mentioned that Primark making lame excuses about the weather, but is the market slowing do you think..?
  5. Hi sorry to **** in? Are you seeing a down-turn in retail? and let us not add the brexit to the dish?
  6. I was worried as no one else had the spikes? As you can see I have clearly marked out the 2 jumps hope this helps. Sorry for once again for added previous pictures with too much info. I know how to do export now.
  7. Thanks for that James sorry about that should have seen it before I sent. I am on a mac so when I take a screenshot and go to tools crop is not highlighted? any ideas?
  8. Yes will do sorry about that, silly me..
  9. Hi and welcome to IG. well, spotted buddy. I noticed the same thing happened on all indices at 9pm?? tonight: TheDOW moved over 200 pips within 10 mins? spiked up then down? Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanx Trevbeats.
  10. You bet, and Netflix flew up yesterday after getting my tooth pulled from the dentist lol....closing positions down in pain was a task...itm yay....
  11. Scalping but with homework in hand and not to greedy seems to work. And as for the swinging lol, that is just great when it pulls the right way. But that been said, "sound like Josh now" Careful trading and following trends is safer. What is your strategy again now Cassynotes? What the heackers caused this to spike tonight mate?
  12. Hi to all, So I have been doing quite well on buying the dips on shares and of course doing the right research on each trade as well. The ones that lost was a small percent of the risk which is good for the account. Plus the margins are much doable and you can move your stops closer to the price to lock in profit whereas forex on some trades has a higher spread. So as for the forex, let's say currency, more risk, and much more volatility can = higher risk. example: Buy the dips in Netflix, atm Netflix is running down fast, but it always seems to go back up, just got to know when that happens. Nice to hear some feedback and your views on this subject.
  13. Knockouts are good for one thing only, short-term positioning...I left FTSE on for about a couple of days, and it stopped me out, so if it's about 80 pips at £20 its a lot of dosh gone...You can close out whenever you wish..So work with your R/R strategy.
  14. Yes, I think you can do this Gabwilliams, as its a form of hedging.. but much better as your not in the trades until the position is hit.. But be careful as it could swing into both of trades if you not monitoring the charts..
  15. Who says scalpers don't make money? The key is : I think is not to be too greedy in scalping.....
  16. Hi, Can you really see the eur/usd go down to 1.15? I have not seen this low ?
  17. I guess it is because you can cover any losses if it goes the wrong way. I have two positions on GBP/USD at 128.32 down about 80 pips atm. But with the knockouts, you can open with a slightly higher position. How you doing atm . You on a demo or gone live yet..
  18. be careful tho as the stops are much higher!
  19. Hi, all Well, it is here the wonderful Esma rule.. Thank you, Europe so glad you are making it much harder now for the small retail trader and what I heard it is to wipe out binary option, so why interfere with the proper traders that are doing it the correct way? I hear its on a time trial for 3 months? Can any help with this question, please? If one was to open up and account what would be the right balance to play with without getting stopped out? Cheers TreV
  20. It's ridiculous PF I have been Informed it's a 3-month trial? and Why?
  21. Ok thank you, Wow, I bet this can cause frustration when executing trades. Slippage I have not actually seen as yet? I might have seen a couple of times candles jump and leave a gap, is that slippage Casy? As for executing this means for sell and buy? So when you are about to sell or buy, it does not do in that second? Sorry for the questions on this but it's new to me like you say.
  22. If we did move down under like you say, would you recommend ICMarkets, seems to be the next best thing to IG as it looks a safe bet to trade with? I can't see why we can not use the overseas IG's? Trev
  23. Hi Rich, I was looking at there site today. So you can say all good and safe? I did ask them to ring me today so I can set up a demo account before going live as it will take time to get used to there platform. Are you trading with IC Markets Rich? It's a **** shame that these margins have going to the stars I don't want to leave IG but can't do these silly margins which will be enforced upon us! Trev.
  24. Hi me again, When you say the execution of trades is not as smooth, there is slippage when going live. I do not get that from the demo platform,,,,is there a difference to the live platform then? Trev
  25. Great wise words Casynotes thank you. My risk and rewards are very set in place. I take it you did the same type of strategy start small and build up? He Is the thing Esma is now forcing that upon us? And you are so right the account will take a long time to build with trades due to high margins. I think Ig know they have lost the battle with Esma, as this would hit the company hard will they survive now? Trev.
