Ask The Trader
Got a burning question? Can't work something out? Confused about what instrument to trade or something strange that's happened on a particular trade? Ask The Trader!
Our Ask The Trader section gives you access to TIC members who are Active Traders and are willing to share their experience and help. Any successful trader's had a load of questions as they learn the ropes and no matter how experienced you are there are always new situations and new questions.
We'd like to encourage anyone to throw a question out there. But of course a similar question may have been answered already, so have a look below to see what questions and answers have already been addressed.
Here's how it works:
- Click here to go to the Ask The Trader Question Submission Form.
- There's no fee required to Ask The Trader but you need to be registered on the TIC site first. If you're not logged in already you'll be asked to Log In or Register first. Check out our Membership Information for more details.
- Once you've submitted your question our Active Traders will see it and be able to submit answers.
- Also, bear in mind that you could get a few answers from different traders.
Most of the research I have been able to find using the GMMA is dated. Does anyone still use the GMMA bands, especially for ES and Euro day trading? If so, can you direct me to a link? Thanks!
I enjoyed Kevin's talk at the Money Show in November last year - it was clear and precise. It was obvious Barry knew a lot about his topic and I went away excited that it was possible to outperform the stock market.
So recently, I started to follow his example; the FTSE has been rising this year so step 1 is easy!
I've been in touch with Kevin and emailed the following (below) to him. Kevin kindly asked me to post it on this page as others may be interested too. I would appreciate your input.
Been a while. How are you keeping?
I am a new trader trying understand how the market works. I have read several books and attended some free trading seminars but I still feel that I have some gaps in my knowledge. I don't have very much money to start trading with so I don't want to rush into the market until I feel that I have a chance of making the right decisions.
Happy New Year Traders
I am in a dilemma at the moment and could really do with some external thoughts/guidance as I've thought myself around in circles on this one.
For those of you who don't know me, I trade my own account intra day and have been doing so for approx 5 years.
I would like to start a discussion on the virtues and pitfalls of going long the VIX index via either VIXS (London Stock Exchange) or VXX (New York Stock Exchange). I am interested in any experience anyone has had trading these ETFs.
The following article is a good reference:
While living in London (GB) - working full time - what time and which currencies should I try to trade at the beginning (even in demo account). I am off from work till 7.30 or 8.30 in the morning and after 6-7 PM GMT.
It seems every platform has its own language to create formulas and conditions to backtest. I am willing to learn a new skill but where should I start?
Does the DEMO version of MT4 allow backtesting?
Which platform offers both enough historical data and backtesting capabilities?
I spent the whole day with the free version of ninja trader...just to discover they don't have enough free historical data...I have to subscribe (pay) esignal or similars...
Any input would be much appreciated.
Should I think about buying software or use one of the free versions available from brokers?
