    FX spot is excluded from Volcker

    So are country denominated bonds (i.e. UK gilts), and a few other stuff

    It still doesn't make sense.

    It had an exclamation mark followed by a question mark. This means a good if possibly flawed move, in chess notation.

    Let me rephrase this for you in simple/standard English so that you should be able to understand..

    I did some online trading and lost £200, before i stopped trading, and cashed in my stock. The markets move with erratic and at many times counterintuitive flows, so plus many investors make money by selling online videos, on how to beat the market.

    For example the candlestick method i mentioned earlier, where you can track a stock's performance by the highs and lows that share has previously reached. And it can go quite deep. But rather than plunge head first in to the murky world of trading stock market derivatives, i have decided to follow my dad's advice and quit while i am ahead, so to speak. is this clearer for you now??

    Thank you, that makes more sense. I always use technical analysis when scalp trading currency pairs, along with some fundamental knowledge of what's going on across the globe. Trading using technical indicators like trend lines, RSI, simple moving average, candlestick patterns and other techniques has been the most useful method for me.

    Would you say that you're running at a profit or loss overall, since you started trading??
