IG charts are not playing ball tonight. Must be a glitch, but gaps look small anyway.

I think Aud/Usd the only one worth having a go at as it has the largest gap ( only 20ish) but a small spread.

The Advanced Charts on IG seem to be working fine, bearing in mind that there's a £30 charge for the month to use them but is refunded if you place so many trades in that period (can't remember how many - five?).

Basic IG charts are still not dispalying gaps on most!!

Struggled to find 3 x 20 pip gaps but giving up until 10pm now as IG basic charts are stuck it seems.

Bugger, just ditched EURO/GBP for a -7,

Still sticking with USD/CAD though as looks like it might be turning.

Should have stuck with Slopius advice and not got in so early.

I'm on advanced charts by the way which would explain why I'm seeing some gaps and others aren't

Re: Trading Gaps

With IG chart probs I'm giving it a miss this week.

More so though cause I've had a 'few' beers and alcohol and trading should never be mixed!!

Good luck to those that do

Re: Trading Gaps

Right I've ditched the other gap trade now as well for about -9 as it's obviously not going my way. I'm also likely jumping out too early but not going to risk it and cutting now. I think the gaps were just too small really to be trading them. Live and learn for next sunday.

Not a great start to the week, I'm about 16 pips down already. Bugger.

Hopefully next week will be a good one and I'll get my pips back tomorrow.

See you all tomorrow.

Just grabbed a few pips from AUD/USD. I applied Mark's rule of targeting a quarter of the gap and doubling that value for my SL, and it's all over already with a positive result.

Thanks Slopius_jim for pointing this stuff out originally.
