    What is the average age of a consistent trader?

    I'm with TWI on this one. Although age is not relevant to trading, having the security through savings, investment's and alternate income streams is relevant and this is more likely accumulated through age. Trading just becomes another potential income stream rather than the route to riches.

    Anyone need any help?

    My understanding is that pips predator is a trade signal software system to generate high probability trades based on technical indicators like macd and stoch's. This is coupled with guidance on trade management. Alpesh is quite entertaining and flamboyant (some might say arrogant) particularly...

    I'm sure FXX has a good handle on his lot and will plough his own furrow. Back to the thread.

    Made a few.... bit muted though. My analysis was that Dutton was unpalatable for the voters and they would turn to a compromise candidate. No surprises really as most politicians down under are spineless reptiles.

    Don't want to derail FXX excellent thread but worth watching for a relief rally in ASX and AUD if someone like Julie Bishop/Scott Morrison (vs muppet Dutton) gets leadership of Liberal party in current turmoil.

    Brexit and the Consequences

    Unless you live in Australia. Current leadership shenanigans make British politicians look professional.

    There is currently a leadership spill. PM likely to be deposed. If you google it you will have plenty of news. From the fundamental viewpoint Aus has unstable Govts at leadership level. No PM has served a full term since about 2007. At the macro level bad for external investment and at micro...

    No...but I have made some coin on the political shenanigans in Aus, shorted ASX and the Aussie. Pathetic shower :thumbsdow, can't get their noses out the trough and they are about the best paid in the world btw and the least educated if you can bear to listen in to a "debate" in Parliament...

    Couple of things to be aware off; CFD Tax implications - in the unlikely event of making a decent profit, you may be liable for tax. If you do not provide your tax details, TD365 may apply a withholding tax. (Note: You may also be able to offset losses against your tax liability as well)...

    Thanks. I have used financial juice (free) with its feed....not bad imho. Gives you a feel of the squawk even if a little delayed so you can watch price reaction. Also keeps you company...sad I know unless you have budgie, gerbil or dog etc as trading can be a lonely pursuit!

    Good comments and I agree about broker.. the amount of requotes in and out and platform "freezes" leads to intense angst particularly when trying to cover in profit! (I did trade full time for a bit whilst on "sabbatical". I am in a full time job atm and hence don't trade the news because you...

    Thank you for answering.. interesting insights and I like the blended approach to the trade. Do you trade in anticipation of the news or off the reaction? 20 pip hard stop is impressive given the volatility that often accompanies these events. Nimble fingers required!

    Hi FXX, quick question if I may....how do you place your stops trading the news? Mental or physical... interested because I often watch markets actively going both ways.. just before release and after. Easy to get stopped out even if you are correct in the overall direction. Tricky.....

    Hi FXX, a word of encouragement on your excellent postings. Firstly, I have been using fundamentals far more now to influence my trade decisions and importantly staying in a trade, however I don't really trade the news per se, have had some modest success trading currencies recently which eluded...

    Thanks for commenting FXX. At face value you may be correct but Aus has a very distorted economy and there is a real chance that this may de-couple from the overall global recovery for the reasons covered earlier. As for military spending, again distorted, main spending is on new platforms for...

    I've shorted the Aussie from 0.7660. The AU GDP data is distorted and lagging imho...current events with banking royal commission and Govt trying to prop up economy with defence spending etc is a warning sign. I don't see much upside beyond 0.7700 and think that an domestic (...
