Why are forex candles made from the offer? As opposed to from trade data? Do some brokers let you see trade data?

It seems to me that things like volume of offers/bids is completely meaningless.

Sorry if this a personal question and a bit on the cheeky side but hey don't ask don't get.

What is your annual return on trading? and how long did it take you to get there?
If you have a break down of the years that's great.

Feel free to tell me to naff off. Just want some real world answers so I can have some realistic goals long term and possibly some inspiration of whats possible. I am currently dealing with the fact I need to study my ass off for the next 3-5 years :smart: so need some good news!

Thanks

Is there anyway to mass delete ToS watchlists? I have hundreds of useless watchlists, and I have backed up the only ones I want to use. The problem is that the only way I can figure to delete watchlists is by ticking the gear symbol>delete and that would just take an absurd amount of time.

Is there anyway I can just nuke all the watchlists? Even if it means nuking every single setting in ToS...(I've backed up everything else that I want .)

My friend and I are trying to make a list of the possible drivers where we can base our predictions on for the stock charts. So far we have these;

- Past stock charts performance (Patterns/trends)
- News events
- Market bias
- Professionals opinions

Can we add more driving factors that can cause a chart to go uptrending or downtrending and that can help to base our predictions on?

Hopefully anyone can help us add to the list! Thanks very much

Good morning all!

I am looking to get into stockbroking and would like any advice that people on the forum could offer.

A little bit about myself:

I have recently graduated from the University of York with a 2:1 in History. I decided to go to uni to improve my career prospects. All my previous work experience has been in sales and I believe that this work experience, along with now having a degree, would make stockbroking both a rewarding, and realistic career option.

At the start of my search for work I applied for multiple vacancies and was surprised with the positive response I had. I was offered a position at CMB Capital but after doing some research I noticed it was an unregistered firm. They promised to sponsor me to take the exams required to work unsupervised. Naturally, I am highly sceptical that they would provide this training. Regardless, I am completely unwilling to work for anyone who flagrantly rips people off and refused their offer.

Are all unregistered firms bad news? The problem that I have is that I have no stockbroking experience and no real contacts in stockbroking. If anyone could offer advice or help I would be most grateful.

I'm currently looking for a position in London.

Thank you!

Global output of raw corn futures for December delivery fell 1.7 percent to close at $3.72 a bushel on the Chicago Board of Trade. Earlier, the price touched $3.705, the lowest for a most-active contract since July 14, 2010. The price has dropped 26 percent in the past 12 months.

“The growing season continues in nearly perfect form here in the U.S. and in much of Canada,” economist Dennis Gartman wrote in his newsletter. “This relentless bear market shall not end until the nation’s farmers have sold their crops.”

I would greatly appreciate any software that is reasonably priced (not sure if that means anything or is even possible...maybe a few hundred dollars or less?) that has the ability to backtest a wide variety of criteria ( I own a mac if that makes a difference).

It seems the software Ive found is quite expensive and far and few in between...any suggestions, or am I missing something?



Thanks

Jos tarvitset rahaa tavata perusluonteisten menojen kattamiseksi, rahasto häihisi tai ottaa lomaa, olet todennäköisesti pitää saada henkilökohtainen laina – jos et laita ylös vakuuksia, kuten talon tai auton, että lainanantaja voi ottaa haltuunsa, jos oletuksena lainan. Koska lainanantaja ei ole tae lainaan lukuun ottamatta sinun oma maine, joudut korkeampaa korkoa kuin panttilainan laina.

Henkilökohtainen laina on täynnä ansoja. Oikein käytettynä ne säästää huomattavasti verrattuna palkkapäivä lainat, tilinylitysten ja panttilainauslaitokset. Ovat kuitenkin monet häikäilemättömät lainanantajat, jotka voivat kokeilla vuotaa verta kanssa palkkiot ja korkeat korot. Tässä on Miten löytää parhaat personal lainat maksamatta liikaa.

Mikä on minun luotto-Pisteet?

Koska ei ole laittanut vakuuksia lainaehdot perusteella luottokelpoisuuden – luotto historia, tuotot ja mitä muut velat sinulla. Muista tarkistaa luotto historia ja Pisteet mahdollisen epätarkkuuden ennen hakemista.

Pro Vihje: Jos et tiedä luotto-pisteet, tarkista ilmaiseksi luotto seuranta palvelua rekisteröitymisestä ja armon mitätöinti.

Jos sinulla on hyvä luotto, luultavasti saat henkilökohtaisen lainan kunnon korko nykyisen pankistasi. Jos sinulla on vähemmän kuin täydellinen luotto, ei taipuvainen "ole luotto tarkistaa" tarjoukset. Payday lainanantajat usein kohtuuttomia hintoja ja usein voidaan välttää.

Hello,

I am relatively new to trading and I currently am paper trading with relatively amounts of capital - about $4000. I have an average 6 mo volume criteria of 2 million. 2 million was quite arbitrary, but I did feel it made sense as it provide the potential for power behind a move.

I am employing a trading range strategy and just started my screen tonight. It seems if I lower my average volume requirement to 100K to 200K I get some cheaper stocks that would allow me a greater reward/risk ratio (that still fits within my risk criteria).

My question is...how important is the quantity of volume as a screen criteria...I understand volumes role with price, and that seems relative to the equity; but should I be avoiding stocks that have a volume less than.....?

Thanks

Hi,

I'd appreciate some of your suggestions on this. I've always kept a close eye on the major indices, principally the SPX but also the QQQ and IWM. With the high correlation between stocks and the major indices I tend to let the averages bring down good stocks and I buy oversold conditions and lighten up on the way up. It works for the most part but I'm also missing a lot of good moves. I tend to lighten up too early too and then miss a lot of the action. A good example is now. I sense we're at the upper end of the range and went to cash a while back. I'm very hesitant at putting money to work on the long side. My view is that once a short term correction is underway all stocks, even the best, will come down and that's the time to buy.

So here's my question. Can many of the best stocks defy the averages and continue their uptrend even during a good selloff? Am I looking too much at the indices? Or are all stocks so correlated nowadays they pretty much all act as one? I don't mean one day wonders but more extended moves. Thank you in advance! :clap:

I am looking for an efficient, permanent virtual trading platforms with access to the FTSE 250 and, if possible, to other European equity indexes and the USA as well.

Ideally I would need a real time feed but other time periods would be acceptable

Is anything out there? Can you help?

Thank you.

Hi Guys,

I was wondering what actually is the essence of trading?

I read this article that said;

Want the essence of swing trading in two sentences?

In uptrending markets buy weakness as it returns to strength. In downtrending markets sell strength as it returns to weakness.


I would add to this that you also have to pick the best stocks on the market and predict the charts/trends as perfect as you can (at least be right at 50% of the times. thanks malaguti!). So now you know where the charts will go to, then you can follow the above rule. Yes right? Any opinions on this? Very eager to learn from other views!

Does anyone now if the Archimedes system is a winner - or is it just another way of losing money slowly.

IDSUD (ALIDS.PA) is a very little known french compagny with a fantastic hidden asset : a 2.6% share in "La Francaise des Jeux (FDJ)" which holds lottery in France.
FDJ offers good visibility and is a real cash machine. It is not a private compagny : France has 72% of the shares and the other 28% belongs to small compagnies that helped organizing lottery in France decades ago.

France was about to put 22% of FDJ on the market in 2008 then in 2010 but financial crisis stopped that. Anyway, few weeks ago, some newspapers hinted that the process is now on track and very close.
IDSUD immediatly jumped from 35 to 50 euros because people who knows the value of this stock started to buy. Yet, the best is to come...
Why ?
FDJ has been estimated at 5 billions euros in 2008. Since then sales soared by 30% as well as earnings.
In 2010, an economist even said in "Les Echos" (main french economic newspaper) that FDJ could be estimated as much as 10 billions.
IDSUD has 950 000 shares (among them, 50 000 are currently in the hands of the compagny itself) and a market capitalization around 47 millions euros.
The compagny has no debt and the FDJ stake can be valuated between 130 and 260 millions !

And, as a bonus :
- cash balance is around 10 millions, no debts
- IDSUD owns a beautiful building in Marseille downtown (evaluated around 10 millions)
- IDSUD also holds two minor compagnies dealing with tourism and gold selling

This is a very attractive stock, ready to explode when definitive news on FDJ privatization will be announced (I believe this summer) as it will shed light on the real value of its assets...

Hi all
I am now using a 30 minute time frame and so to fill in the gaps a bit I thought a new thread much on the lines of the old one but without the silly constrictions of the old one.
So - no rules, just post what you are comfortable with, any sl or tp or chat is a bonus.
