Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Brand New trader

Hi Big Mike and fellow traders still on demo account and made some gains and some losses, I live in the UK would love to speak to other UK traders on tax, leverage and other stuff. No idea how all this works. Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated. Also anyone using Traders hideout platform, so far I love it.

Spread betting seems to be favorable among UK traders because of the tax benefits , compared to regular trading.

Leverage is a no-brainer to me. I trade CFD's & forex , lot sizes there are tiny . If I want more
or less leverage I adjust my lot amount. In futures trading that's different.

I never use more than 1% risk on any trade , that's it.
