Add to that the fact that i am already making money trading, enough to live on, and i have a 8 month...

    Post your Losing Strategies Here!

    Has your EA turned evil? :twisted: Are your moving averages conspiring against you? Is your stop loss always in the wrong place at the wrong time? I'd love to hear from any of you who have very badly losing strategies, particularly if they have been 'proved' to be awful through real live...

    Turtle Strategy- for daytrading?

    I am writing this on the assumption that a lot of people will have heard/ read about the Turtles and their strategy. Anyway, i just wondered if anyone has tried applying similar rules to a daytrading/shorter term strategy? e.g. The turtles used a 20 day breakout strategy- and a 55 day breakout...

    USD/JPY breakout

    Just wanted to post a trade setup i am looking at that looks as though it may be a good one. I don't trade currencies that often but this one looks good. A nice triangle formation going on here, at a guess i'd say the price will break downwards. When it does it has some way to go before it...

    FTSE chart in IGIndex not working?!!

    Is anyone else having problems seeing the FTSE chart through IGIndex today? It's not printing any bars for this morning at all. Tried restarting the program but no luck. Also, when you try to scroll the chart sideways it zooms in or out instead. Really strange. Daily chart is OK though.

I want something a bit more realistic and also that can take into account trading costs (spreads). I am looking at this at the...

    Good spreadbetting experience? Post here!

    I've read so many posts lately of people complaining about Spreadbetting companies and how awful they are, how they requote constantly, take their money, close their accounts, make errors in the SB companies favour, the list goes on... I want to now hear from anyone who has had a POSITIVE...

    Anyone use very tight stop losses successfully?

    I have seen in some threads here that some people use very tight stop losses, perhaps around 10 points or so (or less). Is anyone here producing good success rates with such tight stop losses? Obviously it depends very much on how long you hold the trade, if you are a scalper or hold your...

    Guaranteed money on FX forwards?!

    I came across the following comment on the Capital Spreads thread (comment by capitalspreads themselves):- "I also know a guaranteed way to make money on SB FX forwards (but dont ask because I am not going to tell anyone, it is not difficult to work out) but you would have to put up quite a bit...

    Why is everyone long on vodafone?

    Whilst looking at different spreadbetting firms i came across The home of Financial Spread Betting Interestingly, they publish on their page the percentage of people going long/short on their accounts for various positions. The site says that 98% of their customers are long on the Vodafone...

After just 'playing' around for a while i'm now starting to seriously study the market and learn as much as...
