Hi

Just thought I would start a new topic for discussion of any of the above.

With the exception of some plain ETFs, all high risk.
Not advocating anyone to get involved.

VIX 21.88 short. Dec 19 expiry ( rollover option )

I am still very much learning with this.

Last 3 trades worked, will not be too troubled if this one fails although would prefer a profit of course.

No wonder posters have left in droves.

No wonder investors are choosing other brokers.

Do the kids who run the IT here actually know anything about investing or trading.

That my rant for the day.

Question regarding Crypto
Specifically Bitcoin

I dont know whether this figure is right or wrong but its widely floated acknowledged.
Mining / production cost of Bitcoin is over $4500.
Current going price is well under $4000.

So, the fall continues - as its now pointless
Is it worth shorting Bitcoin if its going all the way down ?
Higher spreads - what if IG stops all trade midway to zero ?
Would I have protection ?

Its up to people to decide whatever is easier to read topics with fewer in-depth replies.

I like that trade. There are so many products to use: Futures, Options, ETFs weighted or not. Problem for most people it is a bit like being given a F1 car - it needs to be driven on simulator, before, going live. For me, personally, I have come to the conclusion that Options suit me better than futures. With Options, the zero sum game mean that I don’t look at the screen constantly. That, however, means developing a new mindset. It seems more like an educated gamble (I hate gambling).

For many of you just keeping an eye on VIX gives you a heads up in a change of market conditions. We have a very low volatility for a few years (sub 10), but, now we are above 20. If that doesn’t fall back pretty quickly it might suggest a change in market personality.
