We got a pull-back that just touched 3000! Low enough for a fill. But the bounce off that has been rather muted.
How long are you planning to hold this trade? A quick couple of bucks, or something longer term?

I think I've lost my inspiration for forum participation!  :(
I get that sometimes as well, but always end up coming back. I wouldn't say forums are addictive,  maybe more about being to talk to people who actually have a clue what your talking about.

I'm out of it already. It was looking a bit heavy and obviously lacking any oomph on the day and there was little time left to start anything. So i scratched it for a few pips and look to buy lower.
Most of my trades are long positions but my CFD trading is nearly all day trading.

I put my longer term investments in other things more concrete!!  ;D

Same here. I take it you've also had a good day with stocks & shares.

Sorry to hear that

The biggest bugbear I have is the mods who allow trolling, surely it can't be in their long term interest?

Yesterday, the S&P 500 was up most of the session but closed 6 points lower in the end, whilst the Dow fell 0.6 per cent to 25,400, losing 300 points in the last 45 minutes of trading on news of Trumps upcoming press release on China today

S&P500 is moving slowly and steadily upwards,  currently 3124.
3000 mark now looking like a support level, hopefully it can push on from here

Just read this morning that the recent recovery  in the S&P, 39% in 50 days, is the biggest 50 day gain since 1952.

Times suggest  3 reasons, belief that we would  come out of Covid quickly, that  government  support would lead to a swift economic  recovery,  and finally that monetary  policy  would encourage  buying of equities.

Given that the last few days have seen markets fall as people worry about  a 2nd wave of Covid, it would  seem that things  are on a temporary  hold. Hopefully,  not for too long.

A bad day for US markets as country  has its highest  single  day outbreak  of covid cases.

S&P falls 2.4% to 3009 and Nasdaq 2.5%  to 3978

This morning the markets have taken back most of yesterdays gains. I would expect the US to follow suit as I can see no real reason why they should continue rising in general.
S&P500 looks overvalued to me, and is IMHO due a correction regardless.
Interesting to note Berkshire Hathaway were back in the markets paying $10bn for Dominion Energys natural gas assets. This brings BH's share of the US natural gas pipeline business up to 18%.

US markets fell yesterday on the back of further covid concerns and after the OECD said it expected to see US unemployment at around 10.4% through Q4.
S&P fell 1.1% to 3145 and Dow fell 397,  -1.5%, to 25,889. Nasdaq slipped 0.9% to 10,343.
