    Fantastic thread. Really enjoyed reading the posts - all that emotion; the fear, the elation; we can all relate to this.

    If bank savings become at risk, how safe are clients funds in a trading account?

    Too right - especially when firms like Alpari have this as part of the Terms and Conditions that you have to agree to before opening an account. "I consent to transfer or otherwise pass full title to, and ownership of, Non-segregated Funds (as defined in clause 6.2 of the Customer Agreement) to...

    CMC New Charting Package

    Hi Pete, Nice to see you on the forum - hope you find it helpful. I'm going to contact CMC today as well and close my account with them - the new charts are an absoloute farce (as I mentioned on the Plus+ forum as well). I've been with them for nearly four years now and had no complaints up...

    A new revolutionary trading robot?

    I read on another website/forum that the way they have no losing trades is because they have a huge stop loss - in excess of 500 pips! (Don't think I could live with that sort of drawdown!) :thumbsdow

    Fx 2008

    ISM didn't do much either. I was really hoping that the amount of news yesterday and today would shake things up a bit in the market but nothings happened. I've only had two trades all week - both on GBP/USD (both came in winners - which was nice :clap:) Apart from that it's been a really slow...

    Live Trading Room - with a difference

    LOL, yes I know - that's the only thing I'm finding difficult. :lol: I'm not a morning person at all and it's a wrench having to drag myself out of bed that early - especially now it's dark in the mornings - hope it's all going to be worth it though.

    Leaving PC on all week

    Hi there, I currently tend to leave my pc on during the trading week and don't turn it off - from Sunday night to Friday night. Basically because I want to check my trades as soon as I get to the pc in a morning and don't want to be waiting for 5 minutes while everything powers up and the...
