I'm happy to announce that you can now add drawings to the indicator study area both on desktop and mobile of the IG charts. This new functionality has been developed on the back of client feedback submitted to Community, from within the dealing platform, and directly with our Trading Services and client facing teams. If you have any other requests, please add them in the comment section below and we'll make sure the charting dev team and product owners see them.
You can now draw on indicators
For instance, get more insight from your RSI indicator by drawing a trendline directly on the study area. The ability to draw on these indicators, such as MACD and volume, opens up a number of new options for technical analysis. Trends, for example, can add granular insight into market dynamics and can help improve the accuracy of your TA and strategy.
But that's not all...
- added the measure tool to the mobile charts and made it persistent on your screen so that it does not disappear when you tap or click away.
- improved the usability of the charts so that you cannot move your drawings by mistake when moving your charts sideways. To move a drawing, you would need to explicitly select it first.
- improved the general rendering performance of these drawings.
Coming very soon!
- we've added the option to activate or deactivate the snapping on the candles. This should be rolled out around mid October.
All the best and happy trading
