Im not 100% sure how this works. Any info is appreciated. I THINK its CFD trading? Meaning that you dont actually buy the STOCK it self, but a contract between u and the bank(/ig/plus500) that gives you a real time quote from the actual stock? Meaning its basicly the same except that you dont own the stock, but if it goes up 10% u get the same 10%? Do you still need to buy x amounts of stock? Or is it more like CFD index trading where you buy 1 contract that gives u x $ as said on the contract? If you need to buy say 10.000 stocks in a company, with 90% gearing (its called gearing yes?) Do you need to get the order "filled"? or is it "buy and sell within 1 sek" like the CFD's on index-trading, where you click a button to buy or sell contracts within seconds..? Hope u guys understand my questions.
I'm trading for 11 months with pretty good success. I never traded metals and forex before, just stocks. Today when gold started to consolidate at the last hour, I decided to scalp short it with a large amount, so I opened 100 lots. I haven't realised, in forex 100 (lots) doesn't mean "100 pcs", because I used to stocks and I went full retard without knowledge. Seconds later, I realised it means 10 million dollars (1 lot = 100.000, and I had 500x leverage). It moved up a bit and immediately I was down £4000. I scared as fuck and rather than closing the position quickly I hoped maybe I could close break even. The market closed, and I waited for the Asian session. The gold popped like never before, and I lost all my life savings (£55000) in less than two hours. (including the 1-hour break between sessions). If I count that I lost all my earnings as well, I lost around £85000. Here is the margin call https://imgur.com/a/XY5m4ZA https://imgur.com/a/VSgmCSs https://imgur.com/pRWl5g9 IC Markets closed my position partially in every 1-2 minutes until I shut it myself at £35. You know the rest of the story. I'm depressed, crying and shouting with myself. Yes, I know I was stupid, thanks. I just wanted to share this with you. Edit: WOW THANK YOU, GUYS! I haven't expected this, but you help me. Many of you asked the same questions, I answer it here: - I live in Europe, and we usually trade CFD's, not futures. - Currency in GBP. - As you can see, this account made on IC Markets. They not just allowing you a 500x leverage, it's the default. - You can ask me why I went against the market. Because gold is way oversold? Because I expected institutions would sell their shares before gold is hitting £2000, leaving retails hanging there. Also, as I said, I wanted to scalp, not riding the gold all the way down. If I had a loss of £100, I would close the position immediately. But when I saw the £4000, my heart is stopped, and my brain just freezes. - I went for a revenge trade with my last £2k, and I don't have to say what happened. I uninstalled the app, and I give up trading for a while. - Again, in the past months, I was cautious, I lost a significant sum in March, but I managed to recover. Made consistent gains, always with SL. This is just an example of how easy is to fuck up everything you did. - I didn't come here for some shiny digital medals. I can't tell about my losses to anyone who I know in real life. I would make a fool of myself. - Anyone who attacking me that it is a scam. Well, think what you want. I feel terrible and the last thing is to answer all the messages saying "You fucking karma whore". I don't give a shit about karma.
Plain english warning about CFD trading, just something I wish someone had told me
tl;dr - trading CFD's is the equivalent of drag racing your drunk mate down the freeway into oncoming traffic. No self respecting adult would bother with them, CFD's are for cocaine-snorting thrill-seeking morons (like me apparently) who have no respect for risk management. Don't gamble with your savings. What are CFDs CFD's are 'Contracts for Difference'. Very simply, if you have a trading account with the right permissions you can trade in CFD's. Why are they dangerous Because say you trade $250, on a normal trade (ie stocks etc) if the price falls by 10% you lose $25, which sucks but isn't world ending. CFD's are NOT like that - they are 'leveraged' which just means that if you put up $50 your exposure is many many many many times larger than that EXAMPLE You buy 50 contracts on a stock that is trading at $100 a share.The stock then drops $10 in value.Your exposure is (50 * 100) = $5,000 BUT because your 'margin' is only 5% of that, the initial amount you put up is a mere $250. So to illustrate: Stock Trading Initial Investment - $250 Value drop - 10% Loss - $25 CFD Trading Initial investment - $250 Value drop - 10% Loss - $5,000 Closing remarks These things are illegal in the US for a good reason. CFD's are for suckers, don't listen to anything that you hear to the contrary. EU regulators say that 76% of CFD accounts lose money. Let me say that again, 76% of these things lose $&*#ing money. If the odds at the casino were 1:4 there is no fkn way anybody would go. When you trade CFD's you are essentially just gambling but with WAY WAY worse odds.Cited: https://www.iexpats.com/76-of-cfd-traders-lose-money-on-their-deals/ You can't make long investments with CFD's, they aren't a long-term strategy and they are not part of ANY investment strategy with a reasonable risk profile. Please don't make the mistake I did and get sucked into trading them, it's stressful as hell and it is pure bravado driven bullshit. Stay safe out there folks, times are nuts Edit 1: Formatting got stuffed up
[Discussion] Theory for why the SF1000 is this bad, and why Binotto does NOT deserve to be fired just yet
Hello everyone, I'm back This time instead of ranting shitting on Ferrari, I've had a week to think and I'm just going to write down some thoughts I have about the current Ferrari situation, and I'm curious to get everyone's opinions on this. What else can we do before the race weekend starts right? The question on hand is very simple. 'Why does this year's Ferrari suck this bad?' In the comment section of this post we discussed reasons for why Mercedes has dominated just about every regulation change, but we didn't talk in depth about Ferrari. Now, I'm not talking about the general "Why is Ferrari not winning titles?" question, because that question has been answered many times over. Ferrari is inefficient, don't have the best engineering talent (Merc poached just about the best from every team over the years), and arguably don't have the corporate desire to actually win in the same way Mercedes does. I'm more curious about the pace (rather lack thereof) of the SF1000. Yes, we know Ferrari as a team is not as well run and organized as Mercedes, but how could they have built a car this bad? A car that barely makes it into Q3. Right off the bat, let me fully and entirely acknowledge that yes, the size of the pace drop is purely due to the illegal as fuck engine being neutered by the new monitoring initiatives. According to some sources, the Ferrari engine is allegedly ~40-45HP down from the Mercs and ~10-15 down from Renault and Honda. There is absolutely zero doubt about that and anyone who's still stuck on the "high drag tho" reason is just fooling themselves. All Ferrari engine teams don't just suddenly eat crow over a winter. However, questions about the SF1000 popped up way before it ever hit the track. It seemed like the design team simply stuck some downforce generating bits on the SF90 and called it a day. And then the same car showed up to Austria, almost 6 months later than the car unveiling. Ferrari have a history of throwing the towel early to work on future regs. Take a look at the 2017 Ferrari. They did exactly that. They completely abandoned the 2016 car to focus entirely on the 2017 car. And they succeeded by any metric. It was a massive step up in performance, giving them a car capable of winning the title (Yes the TP was Arrivabene and we love attributing the entirety of the car's performance to the TP, but pretty much the entire team from 2017 is still at Ferrari today. Including Binotto himself. So the Ferrari aero team nailed that aero reg change. (You could make the argument that actually it was James Allison designing that car, but I'm not as sold, as he left very early. Either way, basically the rest of the team bar Allison remained) You're Ferrari. You lost 2019. Hell, you lost every single season during the hybrid Era. Internally, I'd bet Ferrari is convinced Mercedes is winning because they had a head start on 2014 (rather than due to org structure advantages) and have subsequently been 2 steps ahead of everyone else (and there's actually solid evidence this is indeed the case. Merc is known for starting development on future cars insanely early because it's clearly they're going to win by mid-late season usually). Considering all of the above, there's also one year of regulations left, in the final year of no budget cap spending. Wouldn't it make perfect sense to throw absolutely everything at the new aero regs? To get the kind of early Mercedes-style advantage which carries through multiple seasons? And there's some evidence Ferrari did exactly that. The SF1000 is literally the 2019 car with a few extra bits of downforce attached. I know Ferrari is a meme, but they're not that stupid. It would also explain why they seem so lost currently. Another key point is that engine development costs are NOT included in the future budget cap. Which means, in theory, Ferrari can go balls out on 2021 aero for one season, and have time to catch up with the engine later, as it's not affected by the budget cap. I know the staff and facilities are already in place so it's not like they pulled engine staff onto the aero team, but they may have received priority in other ways. (An aside question, I understand FIA is limiting the number of engine upgrades a team brings, but not the size of the upgrade right? How would this help save costs if a team can just spend the same amount of money on the engine and then bring a bigger update at season start?) Now, I have no idea if any of this is true. But logically speaking, this seems to fit the events that we know happened well. In chronological order-
Ferrari decides to throw absolutely everything at the new 2021 (at the time) regulation overhaul
They learn their engine will be castrated
They design the SF1000 by adding downforce (whether they knew their engine would be neutered doesn't really change anything). At this point Ferrari has no intention of allocating any resources towards the SF1000, as evidenced by the fact that they didn't bring any upgrades to Australia, and then brought the same car to Austria some 4 months later.
Coronavirus hits, everything gets shut down. Ferrari learns in the middle of lockdown that 2021 reulations are posponed until 2022.
They suddenly realize they will be racing with this car for two seasons, and scramble to understand why the car was bad during testing. Note that, Binotto said "our concept fundamentally sucks and our direction changed" very late, weeks before the Austrian GP. Why did they wait this long if they knew they had issues in Barcelona?
They scramble to come up with upgrades to the car, which they don't even have ready by Austria. Their pace turns out so bad, they realize they cant limp around as the 5th best team for two years, so switch back to working on the SF1000.
I'll add that this pattern did not appear in any of the other mid-large teams. Yes Corona hit Italy particularly early, but this would have only taken away 1-2 weeks at most from Ferrari relative to the other teams. We also saw that in testing, every other team seemed to make significant progress while Ferrari literally brought the SF90 with a few extra bits. Mercedes, RB, Mclaren brought (relatively) massive evolutions on their previous cars while Ferrari didn't. So to summarize, this is the current position of Ferrari (if this theory holds).
Ferrari have made a LOT of progress on their 2022 car design after dumping all of their resources into the reg change, just like they've done numerous times in the past.
Something fundamentally broken with the current aero design, and arguably the entire aero program. (Aka their CFD program sucks and their designs don't perform on the track like they do in CFD).
Worst engine on the grid
Now what Ferrari really needs to get out of this mess is a re-org to mimic the Mercedes structure. This is the highly political Ferrari we're talking about, so, let's face it, that has no chance of happening. Now, of course, without a doubt Binotto is responsible for this, and probably does deserve to be fired. However, if Ferrari want to turn this ship around their best chance out of this mess probably IS Binotto. CFD issues need to be solved before 2022. And the person/people who are the most likely to solve these issues are the very people who caused them in the first place, because they are the people who best understand them. Binotto is also an engine specialist by trade, so even though he's ultimately responsible for the dirty tricks of 2019, he's the cleanest dirty shirt in the hamper in terms of who might actually put the right pieces in place to fix the engine. Bringing in a brand new TP right now would be a nightmare, unless it's one of their own and no current Ferrari department heads fit the bill particularly well. It's also possible nobody at Ferrari knows what they're doing and they just suck. But to suck to such an extent that spending ~$450 million gets them an SF90 with a few bits of downforce seems extreme even for Ferrari. They've never sucked this bad in history IIRC. TL;DR- Ferrari probably already committed balls deep to the 2022 regs, and even though Binotto is ultimately responsible for Ferrari being as shit as they are now, he's likely their best bet of getting them out of this shithole. Ferrari needs stability. Especially now, with the entire team structure changing due to the budget cap, and this many fires that need to be put out.
LONG TIME lurker, first time posting. Profitable trader here wondering how I’d give something back to this community without saying, “buy x company at $1 and sell at $1.2”, or giving up the secrets of my strategy. I’m from a banking/arbitrage trading/risk analysis family...would anyone be interested in information around those areas in regard to day-trading? EDIT: I’ll have a bit of a write up tomorrow and stick it up here. Thinking I’ll post something on the arbitrage topic first as that’s probably the most interesting/provocative. EDIT2: Alright, here goes. Instead of an arbitrage specific write up I want to talk about something else first—inspired by TheLoneComic’s comment. This is just what came out when I sat down to write. If it’s well received I’ll keep writing. This will probably be most beneficial to beginner traders with small capital and individuals struggling with stop losses...I can also go into more detail on this post, I’m typing this up within the time frame I have. Arbitrage traders (also my background) don’t think the world of day traders as individuals—or at least ALL the traders I know don’t. Saying that, the trading world as a whole LOVE day-traders. The brokers do as they get commissions and everyone else does as 80-90% of you lose your money to the swirling pool of money in the market. This dislike or “looking down the nose” isn’t all warranted, I’ll admit, but the trading world has to be filled with many losers—many of whom, unfortunately, are just average Joes or Janes trying to free themselves from the wage-cage. This is a noble pursuit but most people shouldn’t, or don’t, require leverage to be profitable and are in fact endangering their capital by doing so—not to mention cutting their career short. This probably the most mind-boggling aspect of the typical day-trader. The term, “trade within your means” springs to mind. The main point of contention within my arbitrage world is those hung up in the world of technical analysis and how reliable it actually is. Keep in mind these are firms with super-computers that execute and exit trades in the blink of an eye, searching all day across entire sectors for price disparity. There’s little room for human error and emotion...Arbitrage companies are incredibly profitable for this reason. I don’t really want to get in a debate over TA as I know how emotionally invested people are in it. I do want to get beginners to rethink how they buy and sell. I will say this, broadly speaking, TA subscribers tend to mistake their success on patterns when the real winner is discipline and strategy—that’s why I like to read this sub. if you don’t have these you will lose...the same is true for all areas of business. We could easily transplant these people into any industry and I’m sure they’d thrive. I believe there’s a missing link in the arsenal of the day-trader. Particularly for the beginner. And this missing link is combining Share Trading and CFD trading. This is a powerful stepping stone for those who want to wade into the rough ocean of CFD. Especially because it will help you better understand risk management and price movement. I’d like to propose a strategy to the 80-90% of strugglers and losers—not the disciplined with sound strategy as they don’t need much help. I believe this is a far better way to enter into the world of trading and will give you a better understanding of leverage and when/how to better utilise it. First, we’re going to start trading within our means, as protecting our capital is vital. We’re going to do this by combining Share trading and CFD trading. Specifically, we need to look for markets wherein there’s no restrictions on trading both CFD and buying shares outright. This means you’ll also need a broker that allows you to do both. Next step is your strategy, PLEASE NOTE, you’re still going to develop your own strategy and work on your discipline so spend plenty of time on this...the only thing that is going to change is how you BUY/SELL. Don’t mean to do this to you all but I’ll have to leave this one as a to be continued...I’ve run out of time and will continue later today should there still be interest. EDIT 3: I’ve got another short period here to continue on. I would like to share what I believe is the true value in leveraging for a day-trader and I’ll tie it in to where I left off. My algorithm will spit out roughly 20 strong trades a day across many different markets. Some of these trades will require being open for several days, weeks, or even a month (I know, this takes them outside the realm of a “day trade”). Herein lies a risk of capital being tied up in multiple long term holds and open positions. Two things here on why I like to actually use buying stocks as a DT strategy: brokers usually charge you a fee to leave a position open over multiple days...this cost adds up—especially if like me you set a price target and don’t exit a trade until it is hit. And secondly, clear stop loss positions are not always clear. So my solution was to just BUY shares of the stock, commodity, or ETFs if I’d projected the trade to be longer than a day or if I couldn’t find a solid stop-loss point (please note my average position size is $15,000-$20,000 per trade so I don’t need the leverage to make money). I could write a whole essay on hedging, as it can be very powerful when combined with this method correctly. It’s roll to play is so important that I will have to divulge more at some point...maybe in a future post. I use leverage mostly to hedge and play some short game while I’ve got my longer term, bigger plays in the ground. Leverage is not a method I use for playing large positions for quick money. I think this is a far better attitude for beginners as the emphasis is always going to be on price targets and exit points, risk management, and money management/allocation. More to come. EDIT 4: To summarise my viewpoint, those seeking to enter the world of trading should first learn to share trade and hedge. Learn to walk before you run. Not only will you gain better experience, be more controlled and methodical, be less frustrated and have a lower chance of bottoming your account, you’ll also have another weapon in your arsenal for when you decide to use leverage. Learning this skill will also allow you to understand when you can increase your stake/risk. Some parts of this have been left a bit vague due to either time constraints or they require a thread/discussion of their own for further explanation. If there is anything I need to dive into a bit deeper please let me know. I’d like to post another thread on hedging and a “turning $1000 into $2000” play-by-play if such things are allowed? Also thinking about posting some of my algorithm’s picks, price entry, and price target. I like discussing such things but don’t have a very wide circle outside of work to share with at the moment.
Binary Options Recovery: Scammed Traders, Fake Brokers, and Funds Recovery
Following the “permanent temporary” measures against binary options and CFDs (contract for difference), the body in charge implements its own set of limitations that simply forbids regulated houses to offer such product in the UK, hence increasing the risk of pushing retails traders towards illegal brokers and outright scams. Fortunately, a new solution is now available to UK traders via a new United Kingdom Financial regulatory ruling. More scrutiny from UK banks about financial transactions, even to binary optionsIn short, banks will have to take more responsibility about the financial transactions they facilitate. This new ruling should lead to the creation of a new code of conduct that will help defrauded people to have their funds recovered by their bank, unless it is proven they acted recklessly. As a popular Financial blog puts, it, “It is likely that should a bank or credit card company be either impersonated by a fraudster in order to gain money, or trick a client into depositing, and the bank allows the transfer, a client will be able to take recourse. The broad protection should kick for many online scheme and scams, whether it is fake investment companies, fraudulent binary options brokers or those scammers who promise to help you recover your stolen funds…only to steal from you once again. On the other hands, it means the banks will be more likely to forbid transactions to legit businesses, such as reputable cryptocurrency exchanges or honest smart options platforms. The regulating bodies and financial institutions are taking a number of measures to prevent financial fraud. Binary options trading, in particular, is being controlled with a greater degree of robustness to protect the unwary general public being drawn into a situation where they suffer financial losses. Many hundreds of people around the world are targeted each day. ![img](prwn4ha2ecf51 " ") Frequently they are novice investors who are unfamiliar with the markets and do not recognize that the so-called trading platform and its way of working are actually bogus. The individual only realizes the extent of the fraud when eventually when the fraudsters finally decide that there is no more money to be had and shut down the account and promptly vanish without trace. Spotting Fraudulent Binary Options Broker Some lawyers in the financial fraud division are very familiar with the pattern of behaviour demonstrated by the fraudulent brokers and the distress caused by their dealings with inexperienced investors. There is a track of record of recovery in relation to financial fraud and has a number of strategies and tactics to compel the fraudulent broker or associated financial service providers to restore funds to those who have been deceived. Needless to say, the fraudsters are accomplished at hiding their tracks and frequently there are myriad inter-connected limited liability companies, often some are registered in different countries, with some dormant and some active. It is hardly surprising if the complexity of the situation results in a failure to discover a single person who can be challenged and held accountable. However, there are various channels financial fraud lawyers use when attempting to retrieve money for clients and each avenue is investigated. Whilst an individual may be alarmed and confused at the prospect of navigating through the complex structures that have been deliberately set up to confuse, Financial fraud lawyers are usually quite familiar with strategies fraudsters use, and frequently can steer a course to the recovery of some or all of the lost money. https://preview.redd.it/daa505b3ecf51.jpg?width=600&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b27aa7697b0bf1afbd238964166ce40c693db2e3 The step of last resort, legal action, is understandably daunting for a person who often has lost significant amounts of money to the fraudulent brokers. It is fully understandable that such a situation will leave the victim decidedly risk-averse. There have been experiences with class actions against the fraudulent brokers and has developed links with litigation funding organizations in order to offset the risk in respect of class actions. The lessons that can be drawn from the experiences of those individuals who have had the misfortune of losing their investments to fraudsters are to be extremely cautious. Always consider every offer or investment for at least 48 hours before making a decision, a genuine broker will understand the caution that a new investor will view a proposition. All investments carry a risk and anything that promises a return on your initial investment seems to be significantly higher than normal it is almost certainly not to be trusted. Do not allow yourself to be hurried into a decision, it is highly unlikely that an authentic broker would try to rush you into an investment, especially if you demonstrated reluctance; their reputation would suffer by such behaviour.

I hope this is an appropriate place to ask about CFD's, i know a lot of you guys are American and do no have access but I'v been struggling to find the right place on reddit to ask that isn't going to just make memes and call me bad words. I have used CFD's (possibley incorrectly) in the past to buy short positions on stocks where it was not available typically. I mostly buy ETF's that i intent to hold for the next 30+ years until retirement and it seems to me that there would be no down side in just buying the CFD instead of the stock. Using the CFD i can buy 10 times as much shares for the same amount of money, it will be free from capital gains tax (In the UK) and i can trade in the after market. I thought some downside might be that I would not receive dividends but googling immediately says that you will receive dividends ( which doesn't make a lot of sence to me) Im not planning on moving everything over just yet, but it seems to me that the balance of using CFD's comes from day trading and not from holding very long positions without expiration dates. I just seems to good to be true, which normally means it is, surely this is what everyone would be doing. Please inform me of something I may have missed. Why would I buy stocks when i can buy a CFD.
Why Beginners Should Avoid Leverage and Where to Direct Their Attention
The temptation to trade on margin can be quite overwhelming for beginners. Especially if you've entered into the trading world through watching others making huge gains. There are better places to direct one's energy in the journey to profitability. The reason to avoid leverage is because, for small-cap investors, it's a near certain way to lose your capital and get completely frustrated with the trading experience. Put it this way, there are too many factors fighting against you in the market for you to be profitable as a beginner fresh off paper-trading--especially if you're only employing technical analysis as your strategy. [please note it is not impossible but it is incredibly rare] We should be asking ourselves why we want to expose beginners to significantly more risk whilst they only have the resources and knowledge of an elementary small-cap retail investor. We should be encouraging another journey that will teach all the lessons of live trading whilst reducing their risk. We wouldn't encourage a friend to search for a home to buy or rent outside their means, nor would we search for a vehicle that we couldn't afford to run...so why should we trade shares that we can't afford to buy? "To make money!?", you may retort...but think about this, there is a way to trade within our means that will make us money and will reduce our risk exponentially. Is it unreasonable to say, that our positions in the market should reflect our knowledge, skill, risk tolerance, and experience? The best place for beginners to direct their energy is in share trading. The principles of Day Trading can still be applied through Share Trading. You can still develop your DT edge and strategy, you can still set market entry and exit points, you can still trade live. The primary difference being significantly reduced risk. If you treat it as if it was a CFD account you will increase the longevity of your trading journey--potentially all way to your trading goals. This method will aid in building solid risk management, self-control, and strategy implementation. I am more than happy to explain in greater detail how these set ups would work and operate. I want to see more beginners succeed in the trading world...the ratio of losing traders is far too high and the advice is often too complex.
Very rookie question but wasn't sure where else to look. I hope I'm not breaking rule 2, but if so I apologise. I'm 19 and have some money to spare, about 500-600GBP. I've been keeping an eye on markets for a while now, discussing with friends, family, uni colleagues, doing research in my free time, paper trades etc and have decided that I want to get into the investing world. As you can see, I don't have much, but thought that there's no better way to learn more than to get involved myself without risking too much. I'm in the UK and have found looking for a broker rather difficult. I've found brokers that have wide range of assets available that I'm interested in but higher commission (especially relative to the amount I've got to invest) and then vice versa. Right now I've settled on opening an account on trading212 as it's "commission free" trading, has a broad base of stocks/ETFs and even CFDs on assets (thought I don't see myself using them much, if at all), UI that I find works for me, fractional shares and will soon have an autoinvest portfolio management feature. (Im still open to other feedback and suggestions from own experience). While I recognise that I'll be susceptible to a perhaps larger spread and nothing is truly free, this does seem my best option so far. This is where my issue arises however. The stocks and shares ISA will mean that capital gains will not be taxed. However right now I have no income as I'm currently a full time student that is very thankfully supported by my family. Therefore I won't be susceptible to capital gains tax as I will most definitely not be exceeding the capital gains tax free allowance of £12,300 in the UK. Either way I won't be taxed for gains on stock investment (more on that in a second). Additionally, trading212 has no fees on an ISA, another attractive quality. But, if I want to start investing and, taking a long term view, hope to continue to contribute up to this limit in the future amongst various ISAs, stocks and shares being one of them, is it good to start a stocks and shares ISA now so that I don't need to liquidate assets and purchase again in an ISA (as the broker I'm looking into using doesn't have switching between investment account and ISA). Is there any downside to me starting the stocks and shares ISA now? Is there any reason not to? I do not have any other ISAs open, only savings in a bank account, albeit not much. Also, although I'd have an account free from capital gains tax, would I still be subject to capital gains tax in the US on US stocks and ETFs? I'd assume so? I've read that investing through an ISA would reduce the rate but I haven't found much of a clear answer. Open to any and all feedback. Again, apologies for the rookie questions.
Hey everyone, I've been interested in trading and have been reading/watching videos for a while now but am still left with a couple of questions: - The country I live in charges 0.35% tax on every stock you buy AND sell. For instance: you buy 5 stocks at 20 USD each for a total of 100 USD then you pay 0.35 USD of tax on this transaction. Same thing if you sell. This means I would need to make at least 0.70% profit (not including other fees) to make a profit. Would it still be interesting to go into swing/day-trading knowing that the profits will be lower? A good thing to know is that options (and also futures and CFD's) are not subjected to this taxation, so I was thinking that this might be a better option ;) for me. -This brings me to my second question: Are there any courses that I can follow that will give me the greatest chance in succeeding in the long run? There seem to be a lot of courses online but I find it difficult to find one with good reviews where I know my money will be well invested. Thanks for the time and feedback!
Hi All, Just started trading on INVEST with real money, it's been an exciting day! A few of my positions have finished at market close 2-6% above my buy-in, and so I was just wondering whether it's possible to set an automatic sell action for tomorrow that is perhaps c. 1% above my buy-in for stocks such as TSLA, which I feel HAS TO plummet, at least a bit, some time soon... By this I mean (for e.g.): I buy XYZ stock at £100 Stock rises to £150 I set sell point at £120 Stock jumps to £170 I consider buying a new pair of shoes from Russell & Bromley Stock drops to £120 and automatically sells whilst I was browsing for those shoes I return to T212 and see XYZ is now at £90 I feel relief that my automatic stop netted me £20 instead of losing me £10, and buy knock-off shoes from Argos instead ...I know this feature exists for CFDs, but was wondering whether it does for INVEST and, if so, how to set it up? Many thanks in advance!
With Bitcoin Suddenly Surging, Canaan Stock Is Also Going Up Today
In reviews about degiro I've seen: "The lack of markets and investment types, does mean however, it is better suited to ‘buy and hold’ investors, rather than active day traders." I also heard some people say that degiro "might not be ideal for daytraders". What does this mean in particular? Is the first sentence refering to that you can't trade CFD's and forex? What do "markets" and "investment types" mean in that context? I guess my baseline question would be: Can I just trade options during the day, and take advantage of degiro's relatively low transaction fees, while also holding some stocks/etfs on the side for a bit longer? Or is there a caveat/catch to it (and is this not the best broker for a dutch beginner, like myself)? Because from everything I've researched degiro looks like a damn good option, but these reviews are giving me some doubts. Thanks a lot for reading
Okay fellow autists, time for some DD. Mesoblast is a world leading stem cell company. After a decade of fuckery they finally have something to show for it. In April they announced that 83% of Covid-19 ARDS patients survived in a compassionate use program in New York, verse 12% survival of those that didn't receive treatment. The trial was only 12 people, but they have used the stem cells in a few other hospitals and its always the same result - they actually fucking work. The FDA fast-tracked a phase 3 trial for 300 people, and interim trial results could be released any day now, but expected around early July. If they mirror the results from the compassionate use program, MSB could blast to $20 based on the size of the potential market by the end of July. Check links below, but some people are calculating $200-$300 share price within a few years, putting them at a higher market cap than CSL. If that's not enough, they are gonna be added to the ASX200 this week which means fund managers will be buying this shit up like there is no tomorrow. On top of that, they have other phase 3 trial readouts any time now for Chronic Heart Failure and Chronic Lower Back Pain, which are huge markets as well. Basically these stem cells are magical and can be used on basically anything. Now is the time to board this rocketship before it takes off. Your wife's boyfriend will LOVE you for buying this. Also, if you wanna get extra saucy, you can buy cfds on MSB through CMC with 1:500 leverage. Think of all those fucking tendies. Not convinced?

Why Beginners Should Avoid Leverage and Where to Direct Their Attention
The temptation to trade on margin can be quite overwhelming for beginners. Especially if you've entered into the trading world through watching others making huge gains. There are better places to direct one's energy in the journey to profitability. The reason to avoid leverage is because, for small-cap investors, it's a near certain way to lose your capital and get completely frustrated with the trading experience. Put it this way, there are too many factors fighting against you in the market for you to be profitable as a beginner fresh off paper-trading--especially if you're only employing technical analysis as your strategy. [please note it is not impossible but it is incredibly rare] We should be asking ourselves why we want to expose beginners to significantly more risk whilst they only have the resources and knowledge of an elementary small-cap retail investor. We should be encouraging another journey that will teach all the lessons of live trading whilst reducing their risk. We wouldn't encourage a friend to search for a home to buy or rent outside their means, nor would we search for a vehicle that we couldn't afford to run...so why should we trade shares that we can't afford to buy? "To make money!?", you may retort...but think about this, there is a way to trade within our means that will make us money and will reduce our risk exponentially. Is it unreasonable to say that our positions in the market should reflect our knowledge, skill, risk tolerance, and experience? The best place for beginners to direct their energy is in share trading. The principles of Day Trading can still be applied through Share Trading. You can still develop your DT edge and strategy, you can still set market entry and exit points, you can still trade live. The primary difference being significantly reduced risk. If you treat it as if it was a CFD account you will increase the longevity of your trading journey--potentially all way to your trading goals. This method will aid in building solid risk management, self-control, and strategy implementation. I am more than happy to explain in greater detail how these set ups would work and operate. I want to see more beginners succeed in the trading world...the ratio of losing traders is far too high and the advice is often too complex.

The above "actually" means the following: If it happens that your trading account is empty, but your CFD platform can not close your trades immediately and the price continues to run against you, your trading account may theoretically go down (a very rare scenario, which occurs only in extreme market movements, but can not be excluded at first).
