Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site, but if you were able to move the battery cable by hand, you either need new terminals or you need to tighten them.

Hi David they are tight but I shook the cable and it started
Expert:  david craig replied 3 months ago.

ok, check the power wire that goes into the fuse box, make sure its tight

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
ok I never check it its raining he now so I will tomorrow any other things i make need to check
Expert:  david craig replied 3 months ago.

if you can move the battery cable and it started, obviously something is loose. check the wire I mentioned along with the negative battery cable where it connects to the engine block.
