Hi RS. Yes Im still around. Mainly involved with the motor trade but still like to play the markets with a combination of positions and hedging. Less hassle than cars providing you can get it right more often than wrong and tax free of course. Fortunately Im one of the 5%. Good luck
I did not return to the old site. I look in but rarely post. It became ridiculous because of one poster. It has improved and there are a couple of decent posters but most are just gamblers.
I closed my account with Cap Spds when LCG took over. The charts were poor plus they were doing things I did not like. Managed to find another way of connecting with Talking Forex but that has now stopped.
I don’t know any other SB offering free Talking Forex.
Still trading with mixed success. I intend to change my system in 2017 to less screen time and longer time frames.
I just opened an account with Intertrader, its like the original Caps platform and they do provide squawkbox although its not the Forex one and I feel not as appropriate either, but still covers major announcements etc.
Took a few trades with them around FOMC last night and execution was pretty good.
There was an occasion when I didn’t get the price it said on the ticket whilst market was moving fast. (Market jumped 8 points or so as I pressed the button, ticket was still showing the old price but the transaction went through at the new price).
They do offer decent IT Finance charts though and even their basic charts do the job and visually better than LCG/Caps.
