    Trading should be complicated

    I found it flakey entering orders- I had one or two 'accidents' that were costly and the platform froze on occasion -it killed my Dell laptop in the end. I'm not obsessed with money and as I am an older gent I only seek additional income, and have never scaled up, trading using about 1/4 of...

    Trading should be complicated

    Cannot realistically trade options online in the UK- SAXO bank have a platform but they have yet to roll out multi-legged strategies. IB is too ugly for me- I quit with them some years ago. For analysis I use CME's Quikstrike tool nad for markets I use Investing.com. I get direct to market...

    Trading options platforms

    I didn't think IG had options trading for 20 years, I gave up on them as they asked for fees too. I only trade via a proper broker direct to market. But hey whatever gets you a living.

    Trading options platforms

    Mike8man you are confusing IB with IG - you cannot trade options on IG, it's hopeless as you take a 50% haircut

    Trading options platforms

    I found IB unreliable and the Greeks were a bit off compared to other calculators-but each to their own. Didn't think IG were still doing options -the spreads make it impossible to make sensible money

    Trading should be complicated

    NVP there is a lot of goodfre stuff on options from the US- a bit rubbish for UK retail sadly-maybe because we are not the 78% that lose money

    Trading should be complicated

    Never heed my own advice- this morning around 10:00 am Mrach FTSE 7100/7000 put ratio spread- buy one 7100 for every 2 of the 7000s that are sold. this was a debit of 4-now worth 10. Grrr £400 gets you £1,000

    Rollout effectiveness

    never sell naked. Period. Again.....NEVER sell naked-selling puts in a stock is ok until you have to catch that falling knife and after 2 years of your stock at 30% of the buy price you close out. Maybe there are a few good safe stocks, and in the UK we are prevented from trading options on junk...

    Trading Courses

    Why the heck would you try and day trade stocks? I'm talking about the UK here. you'd be lucky to see a 1% profit on a daily basis-take out the bid/ask spread and comms. Even spreadbetting is risible-that's why IG is a FTSE100 company and 99% of its punters live with their mum. Forex spreads are...

    How good are you at trading - just be honest

    I have a precise timeframe, entry and exit points, rinse and repeat- works 100% of the time. Do I take the trades? Of course not- I dick around with everything else and then realise I'd forgotten my 'banker'

    forex is for trading, stocks for investing-you need leverage to trade stocks, otherwise you will spend £5,000 to make £20

    Rollout effectiveness

    you ned to roll OTM that is the point- so you sacrifice future trading by rolling down and into the next month, and so on. Equity options are painful- it is really stupid to sell them naked as a stock can do ±6% in a day

    Brexit and the Consequences

    the EU could fall apart after Brexit- if other nations see us doing ok. The Euro is a dangerous experiment and has served Germany well, while crushing other member states. It is indeed a right pickle- smug Cameron had no idea how out of touch Wetmonster is. People are sick of losing their...

    Brexit and the Consequences

    I asked for a response from Michael Gove about the Steve Baker evidence- nothing,nada.zip to date. The Maybot had my respect until that clip showed her to be a traitor.
