Hello

 

I am new to the site, and I was just wondering if there's any where on the site I can get info on trading UK stocks?

 

Cheers

 

Brian

 

Brian - someone might argue that trading is trading, regardless of what market it is performed on. If that's the case, then the entire forum is at your disposal. If you want to talk UK specific stocks, I don't think you'll find much of that around here at this point.

I know a few members are located in UK (or Europe)...

just look at the box on the right hand side of the post, you can see their location.

 

If you start a thread, I am sure it will get the ball rolling.

Many thanks - I am mainly looking for FTSE 350 stocks to trade at the moment, using the Channel Breakout Strategy. I'm new to the theory and I was just looking for people that might be getting into similar trades so that I can check to see if the orders I place are based on sound technicals. By the way, how are the Browns doing this season (I am a Vikings fan, 34-20 I believe the score was in week 1...)

If you want to talk trading strategy, that is all over this forum. Start a thread, post screenshots and off you go. Again, the instrument being traded is not important. You can post screenshots of the stocks you are trading and others might post other instruments. But if you want to get it going, then you need to start it.

 

PS

The Browns suck this year which a quick look @ espn.com would tell you that. So if you're just looking to take a shot, then you can place me on ignore and I won't offer my suggestions.

Yes, I understand that thanks - my point was that I was just trying to find a peer group to discuss trades on the FTSE 350, but there looks like there's a lot of useful information on this site so I'll take a look and act on your suggestions if I need advice on specifics.

 

Sorry to touch a nerve with the Browns, it wasn't intended as a shot, just a bit of friendly banter. I wont mention the NFL again (especially after the Vikings loss today). Hope you don't feel offended and accept my apology.

Hi

 

I am new to trading. Would like to try day trading eventually but going to have to swing trade for while cause I have very little capital. Traded with IRA for a year or so and turned it over to be done professionally. Going to be reading and learning before I put a good lump sum into day trading.

 

Any good places with a glossary of terms anyone can recommend?

Try investopedia. This should give you a good starting point.

New to the forum. I've had a Scottrade IRA account for 5 years, and the best I can say is that I learned how to not lose my money, But I have yet to make any significant profits tradeing.

 

I'm hoping to find some answers here.

 

Thanks

Bill

Hello everyone,

 

My name is Nick and I'm starting out trading with a mix of fundamental/technical analysis. I'm based in the UK but I would like to start trading on the US stock markets. I've been told it's much cheaper for beginners because of the way the broker fees are structured. Does anyone have any opinions on this? I saw Brian was looking to trade FTSE 350 - are you paying a flat fee per trade?

 

Thanks!

Nick,

 

Which markets are you looking to trade? Stocks? Futures? This will help in getting you info on the broker fees. You might want to check around to some different brokers to get a better feel for the fees. Here's a few that you might want to look into if you are looking into stocks and futures:

 

-Interactive Brokers

-Tradestation

-thinkorswim

-tdameritrade

 

Not saying these are the best or only options. Just a few of the popular names out there. They will all have the fees laid out on their websites.

    • Date : 10th December 2019. FX Update – NZD & GBP remain Bid – 10th December 2019.NZD & Sterling The New Zealand Dollar posted a fresh four-month high versus the Australian Dollar, while NZDUSD and NZDJPY saw two-day highs. A shift in RBNZ policy expectations and an associated rise in NZ yields have been underpinning the kiwi. The 10-year US T-note yield advantage relative to the NZ 10-year yield has narrowed by some 15 bps since late November. It is expected that this trend will taper out at some point, as RBNZ monetary policy is historically sensitive to movements in the currency. The longest rallying kiwi pair is the NZDCAD which is now in its 29th day and 280 pips (4.6 x ATR) north of the key 20-day simple moving average, 19 days over the 50-day moving average and 6 days over the important long term 200-day moving average and psychological 0.8600. Next Resistance is R3 and the upper Bollinger band at 0.8750. MACD and RSI both remain positive.Elsewhere in the forex realm, most dollar pairings and associated cross rates have remained in narrow ranges, holding within respective Monday ranges in thinned-out year-end conditions. EURUSD has remained particularly directionally challenged, seeing less than a 10-pip range during the Asia-Pacific session until the entry of the London interbank market. USDJPY managed a 12-pip range. The stellar US jobs report of last Friday has had little lasting impact on the Dollar. Markets seem non-committal, partly due to seasonal considerations and partly amid a certain anxiety ahead of the weekend’s deadline for the US to hike tariffs on a further $160 bln worth of Chinese goods. A delay in this deadline is possible, if a phase-1 deal fails to come to fruition, while an implementation of the new tariffs would mark an escalation in the trade war and cause a significant risk-off response in illiquid year-end global markets.Sterling has settled after rallying yesterday, unaffected by the slight dip in GDP and the worse than expected trade balance, Cable holds the 1.3150 pivot point. Markets have factored in a Conservative victory with an outright majority at Thursday’s UK general election, based on public opinion polling, though political pundits have been stressing that undecided votes are making this election tricky to call. Polls have suggested most undecided voters are people who voted for Labour in 2017, suggesting there is a possibility for an unexpectedly strong showing for Labour, however, the surge in tactical voting to prevent a Johnson majority is difficult to calculate, and there have been no clear signs of this. The key YouGov MRP opinion poll will be updated later today; last time (November 27) it predicted a Conservative majority of 67 seats.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Date : 9th December 2019. Events to Look Out For Next Week 9th December 2019. *Following the OPEC meeting this week and the  surprisingly strong US payroll data, three interest rate decisions are scheduled next week. Other than Central Banks, the event of the week is the UK Parliamentary Election on Thursday. Monday – 09 December 2019 * RBA’s Governor Lowe speech (AUD, GMT 22:05) – Due to speak at the AusPayNet Summit, in Sydney. Tuesday – 10 December 2019 * Consumer Price Index (CNY, GMT 01:30) – September’s Chinese CPI is seen unchanged at 0.7% while the PPI figure is expected to decline further to -1.2%. The overall reading for CPI is estimated to post a gain up to 2.9% y/y. * ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 10:00) – Economic Sentiment for October is projected at -27 from the -22.5 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The overall Eurozone reading though is expected to decline slightly further to -33.0 from -22.4. A lower than expected outcome, ties in with the stagnation in market sentiment at the start of the month. Wednesday – 11 December 2019 * Inflation Rate (USD, GMT 13:30) – A 0.2% November headline CPI rise is expected with a 0.2% core price increase, following respective October readings of 0.4% and 0.2%. As-expected gains would result in a headline y/y increase of 2.0%, up from 1.8% last month. Core prices should set a 2.3% pace for a second consecutive month. We expect an up-tilt in y/y gains into Q1 of 2020 due to harder comparisons and some lift from tariff increases that should leave gains in the 2.4% area, which may help ease concerns about persistent inflation undershoots of the Fed’s 2% objective.  * Interest Rate decision and conference (USD, GMT 19:00) – The FOMC is widely seen on hold even after the robust payroll data, with no shift in rate policy for the foreseeable future. Indeed, the data validated the pause and left policymakers in a state of Fed Nirvana, at least for now. Fed Chair Powell will reiterate the economy and policy are in a “good place.” There is little risk of any downside “material changes” in the outlook anytime soon given the solid path for jobs growth. And, GDP will likely continue to modestly outpace the official Fed estimates, just as a benign inflation trajectory caps risk of rate hikes from the Fed as well. Hence, the focus will be on the Fed’s quarterly forecast update (SEP) and Chair Powell’s press conference.  Thursday- 12 Decemmber 2019 * Parliamentary Election – Brexit will be a focal point with the December 12 election. While the Conservative party with a working majority is the clear odds-on favourite outcome of the election, the outcome of the general election is by no means a sure-fire certainty, however, especially in light of the predictive failures of pollsters and betting markets at elections in the UK and elsewhere in recent years. * SNB Interest Rate Decision and Conference (EUR, GMT 08:30) – The central bank is widely expected to keep policy settings unchanged as ongoing uncertainty on the global growth outlook, along with weakness in the Eurozone economy, support the view that the central bank’s negative interest rate and the threat of ad hoc currency interventions remain necessary to keep the franc under control, and prevent inflation from falling. The central bank has kept the door to additional measures open as it keeps a close eye on geopolitical trade tensions and Brexit developments. * ECB Interest Rate Decision and Conference (EUR, GMT 12:45 &13;30) – Lagarde’s first press conference. The “risk” is that it will be equally uneventful as her testimony before the European Parliament. It is very likely on Thursday, to be confirmed that: The ECB remains ready to act again and tweak all its measures if necessary, but has already done a lot and now needs to keep an eye on the side effects of the very expansionary monetary policy, while politicians need to do their bit to support the economy.The ECB won’t be reducing the degree of stimulus any time soon and we effectively see the central bank on hold through next year, unless there is a major change in circumstance. Friday – 13 December 2019 * Retail Sales and Industrial Production (USD, GMT 13:30) – A gain is expected up to 0.3% November for both the retail sales headline and the ex-auto figures, following a 0.3% October headline with a 0.2% ex-auto figure. There’s considerable uncertainty, however, given seasonal distortions around the holidays, especially including Black Friday and Cyber Monday swings, and with six fewer shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
