Traders have to follow above site in first post.




Index trading is easy and contradicts what this video below suggest.Most gurus in trading are non traders, they know nothing about real trading.They talk nonsense!




Index trading is very difficult.  Indices move very fast and a winning position can turn into a big losing one in just an hour or two.  that's part of that attraction - obviously because its an index there are a lot of stocks that make up an index. An index is giving you a measure of sentiment in the market. A company can go to zero but that's unlikely to happen to an index.

You have been going around in circles for the last 2 years on this forum 'system hopping', claiming to be a total success while always being disingenuous to all other posters. And it turns out that over the last 2 years you have amassed an account totalling a 'self confessed' £1000  while claiming 20 - 30 % profit a week.


Do you perhaps see that some might find this incongruous?

'There is evidence on the site showing indices trading can profitable'

You could just look at hedge funds and investment institutions which are profitable via indices trading. With regards to the site there are only 2 weeks of a trading journal which is not long enough to say there is evidence of profitable trading.

If you have back tested it then why do you start with an account of £1000 and not £10,000?


Have you had a recent buy at support trade? Recently you've mentioned a retracement trade which didn't work out. Have you also back tested the retracement trade and is it also profitable in the long run.


I don't understand why you traded a different set up if you know buying at support is profitable.

a)most back testing is useless, because of psychology.An understanding of trading psychology is required, to know why most back testing is useless. Back testing does not always cover everything , about the trader and his own mindset.I had to approach this trading with caution, using a small account and increase the account, if all is OK.I am hoping to go to a £50 k account soon.


This subject is huge, to learn more 


Most back testing is useless





b)I don't need to  back test trend retrace strategy on the indices,  a look at weekly charts  will show how retraces eventually rebounds from the retraces or dips. I look at losing trades as part of a series of option trades entries, if one fails it is the profitable ones that matter.Just allow   1,000 ticks draw down  may happen in a bear market.It is all about taking risk


c)Buying at supports is not always profitable, sometimes I miss the support trades, in which case I will use trend based entry.

Casey"You have included the word 'profitable' in the title while offering no statistical analysis to back the claim. Clearly spurious".



Last week I  started trading stupid forex, it lost me 20%  whereas  indices made 40 %, so net profit was 20 %.I have now stopped trading forex.From my own experience and huge experience, I  have always found indices trading profitable.If it is profitable for me, it is profitable.




How many years should I show profitable results for, before I can call it profitable?I suggest your people at trade city provide audited certified accounts for proving forex is profitable, in the meantime I will claim it as profitable.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
