I actually use sentiment from one of the algos.

So, it is a problem for me. Bigger than it seems and unfortunately as you said, because it is indicative it shouldn't be used to make any decision. 

It's a problem for me also. IG just need to ensure the numbers are consistent, I don't know which number to believe as the API shows a different number to some of their webpages.

Yeah just because a broker slaps the word 'indicative' on their data gives them a free pass to screw over their retail clients.

That's exactly how it works.

yes, the API shows different numbers. Until one of the sides reaches 80% I don't normally do anything, below that it can change quickly. You can blame the broker but you can't prove it. If we compare it with other sites, is IG's data wrong or the other site's data wrong? How can you actually prove it?

We are on moving sands.

I have just been looking at two pages on the IG site and they show different client sentiment numbers for AUDUSD:

    • Yes I agree Guru, giving current examples is a good way of doing it! I have been trading for over 20 years and in the last 11 years I found myself mainly trading DAX (Germany) 40, because it is the easiest and most profitable. Which market do you find easiest to trade, Guru? Does anybody else find DAX easier to trade than other markets?  I am interested in hearing other traders' experiences.
    • Source: Coingecko  Source link: https://www.coingecko.com/research/publications/2024-q1-crypto-report The cryptocurrency sector has experienced significant growth in 2024, driven by events like Lugano city's acceptance of crypto payments and the approval of the Bitcoin spot ETF. The industry's market cap reached a record high of $2.9 trillion, with $1.1 trillion added in Q1 alone. Bitcoin surged to a new peak of $73k, surpassing its previous ATH of $68k. Top centralized exchanges like Binance, Bitget, OKX, and Bybit saw substantial growth, with Bitget particularly excelling in derivative trading. Bitget's open interest exceeded OKX's and ranked closely behind Binance and Bybit. Spot trading volume surged from $29B in January to $95B in March, elevating Bitget to the top 7 spot in the spot market and maintaining the 4th position in the derivative market among major centralized exchanges. While other exchanges also witnessed significant growth, Bitget's standout performance has made it the focal point of industry attention. What are your impressions of these findings?
    • DogeDay always brings back memories of 2019 when my friends were diving into Dogecoin and joining farming activities. That's why I'm excited to explore the Bitget DogeDay giveaway event. Plus, with tomorrow's BTC halving, the excitement is doubled!
