hi all,my first post & hopefully not my last.Iam looking at trading the dax using ig market cfd & was wondering if anyone had any horror stories about stop running & any funny business while intraday trading.Have been told that the dealers on duty get paid by the amout of money they take.From my point of view the $1 per point looks inviting.I have trading using very small positions & have noticed the deal thru charts will cut out sometimes if you are taking small scalping trades.Does the ig chart follow the index closely or am i just dancing with the devil??
looking forward to hear from anyone who has used ig markets & index tradind with cfds.

Hi dillym. With IG you're trading their synthetic market. I strongly suggest you trade Dax via its native exchange Eurex.

I'm surprised this thread doesn't have more activity.
I've been trading the DAX live lately and it's quite the animal ! At this stage breaking even to tiny profits
Basically scalping phasing in and out of wins or losses, seems to move very fast at times totally unexpected.
Anything like a swing needs a pattern to wait for.
What are you guys using, patterns / momentum ? I guess the usual sell at resistance buy at support.
Look's like I'll need a bit of input if I want to get any further with this one.
Cheers,

Short DAX 8807 stop 8842
I'm thinking this is an all right place to short but market is running up for some reason pushing into resistance levels.
It's like watching a car crash in slow motion.
Hopefully 8842 is the top of the trading range and its another run down from there ..... :pcorn:

Well so much for a good thing ...
Used the volitile start to the DJIA to get out at 8810, I consider myself lucky. At one stage I was up 10 points. (went down to 8796)
What did I learn .. resistance doesn't always mean "resistance,
I live to fight another day.

Just signed up with IG... Novice here.

I'm mainly looking to short the ASX.

Bit of diversification haha, I've tried forex but it's quite hard to pick and easy to lose money on.

Are CFDs as tough? Are you able to hold positions for a while or is it mainly a day trade thing?

Leverage makes forex hard to hold positions I feel?

Anyway, I'm all ears :p

.......eyes.

CFD's easy or not ...
You can make a small fortune, you just have to start out with a large one.

Whats on your chart, what are your signals ...

Short at red line with 2 lots(8773), still in....

What a move! In line with my Monday high of the week pushing down into Friday from the other thread. Certainly no lack of volatility around lately :xyxthumbs

Cheers Can :)

Exited @ 8503, before it rallied 130 points back up, some huge moves to be had if you can hang onto the reigns :holysheep:

Great Trade Sam.

in a night.
Brilliant.
