FTSE 100 Question

Hi all,

Just a quick question.

Yesterday the FTSE decided to fall relatively rapidly at 15.15 and again at 16.00. If I learnt (and obviously got access to) Level II information or a real news feed rather than the one from IG, would this have helped determining whether this was going to happen?

Currently I just trading off of 1 min, 5 min and 1 hr candlestick charts with MA20, 50 and 100.

Any thoughts?

Cheers,

Dean

Re: FTSE 100 Question

personally i never got the hang of level 2. my gripe with it, which is a personal preference is that is sucks you and makes you trade a lot (over trade). that said many full time traders trade just off order flow and nothing else (maybe not so much in the futures though).

Bakedbean started this thread Thanks guys,

Just out of interest, is there anywhere I can get a list of upcoming news that would concern the FTSE.

Just a point in the right direction would be very beneficial.

Many thanks,

Dean

Re: FTSE 100 Question

IG econ diary is ok , but there is a bug in it , where by it doesn't always list all the releases in the correct time order (caught me out a few weeks ago). To solve this I enter todays date in the "to" and "From" date filter, works ok then.

Others I use are :

Bloomberg : http://www.bloomberg.com/markets/ecalendar/index.html , US only though (remember to set the correct time zone)

Others are from the usual forex sites like Forex factory , DailyFX ( http://www.dailyfx.com/calendar/ ) and FXStreet ( http://www.fxstreet.com/fundamental/...esf=03/31/2010 )

Theres a pretty comprehensive one at saxobank (maybe overly comprehensive sometimes ?)
