Your Poll vote matters:

Hello IG Community! We are working towards making IG trading platform charting developments better to provide a good user trading experience.

Why? We strive to provide our clients with the best charts, therefore your feedback is important to us and we will pass on your feedback to our development team. 

We would appreciate it if you could take part in the poll as we are continuously working on adding more chart features to our IG trading platform to make your trading experience better. 

 

Charts request options:

Please read the information on all the options below and then vote on what you would like IG to work on offering next.

1.      Add indicators/tools

Whether you’re interested in forex trading, commodities or share trading, it can be helpful to use technical analysis as part of your strategy – and this includes studying various trading indicators. Trading indicators are mathematical calculations, which are plotted as lines on a price chart and can help traders identify certain signals and trends within the market.

There are different types of trading indicators, including leading indicators and lagging indicators. A leading indicator is a forecast signal that predicts future price movements, while a lagging indicator looks at past trends and indicates momentum.

 

2.      Timeframes

A timeframe in trading can refer to any designated unit of time in which trading takes place. Typically, forex timeframes will be measured in seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months or years. You will choose the timeframe that is most suited to your trading strategy.

 

3.      Customise indicators/tools

Once you’ve applied your indicator to a chart, right-click on the indicator itself. From here you can edit values, colours and styles.

 

4.      Drawings

You can edit drawings, the values, by right-clicking on your drawing. You can also duplicate or delete drawings in this way.  

 

5.      Backtesting

Backtesting will run a trading strategy against historic data for an instrument, and give you a detailed report on how it would have executed trades. Apply indicators & trading systems then create a new strategy or modify an existing one. 

Backtesting is one of the most important aspects of developing a trading system. If created and interpreted properly, it can help traders optimize and improve their strategies, find any technical or theoretical flaws, as well as gain confidence in their strategy before applying it to the real world markets.

At a glance on day charts it's hard to see where one day ends and the next starts, simple solution, shading.

also useful to have free form drawing/writing within drawing tools. e-g if I want to draw a cup and handle or wave drawing, at present there is no tools for it.

PLEASE add a visual display of entries and exits on the chart for reference. its been years that we ask for this basic but extremely useful feature and it still hasn't been implemented.

I've seen Josh Mahoney refer to a standard deviation channel that looks useful but is not within the standard chart package (from what I can see anyway). Could you add this please?
