Since I have a day off from my regular job, I thought it would be fun to show you have you can trade CFDs. I recorded all my trades today and broadcasted it live on Workplace (you can see the entire video below).
I spent some time looking through my favorite assets on IG.com: DAX, Dow Jones, US Tech 100, & Gold. I saw quite early that we were in a sideways moving marketing, and that a trade would take significant time. I ended up with buying gold. Within the first hours, the trade looked quite good. When I went back to prepare myself for the Unemployment Rate numbers released 14:30 CEST, I didn’t think that gold would take such a beating as it did. I ended up with closing the trade and was down $2000+, I saw quickly that US indexes where rising and I bought Dow Jones rapidly. I earned $4300 quite fast and decided to take profits and end the trading day. You can read more about the unemployment numbers from US here:
