Recommended Posts

They're closed and next candle says 16th of May, we wasn't warned about the market closing, I've got positions open...

IG shuts down all the platforms every Friday evening (UK time) for platform updates and maintenance and opens again Saturday morning for crypto.

you really need a price line each for bid and ask on crypto charts;

always a bit of  a shock seeing minus 36 points on entry 😳

82% of IG clients long Bitcoin, bound to be a lot of 'long squeezing' before the price inevitably shoots up again :D

BTC has gone very illiquid approaching the halving event (the 210,000 block expected to be layed down tomorrow). So price may well fly about for a while before settling down.

    • Volume profile, depth of market, orderbook, VWAP, VPVR, VPSV... all the basic things needed which for some reason are disabled.. seems odd that you don't want your clients to see this information? Even FXCM, OANDA, Pepperstone, ICmarkets, FXPRO & many more not listed all allow you to see this and have access to this vital information. ProRealTime v11.. It's about 2 years overdue now... frustrating not only having out of date features but more so when trying to back test things as it's limited on v10.3 to a maximum of 100k units.. that means with every day passing, I lose a day's worth of data.. PRT v11 allows you to have 1m unit backtest.. Also.. Custom, multiple take profits.. allow me to set a desired amount, for example.. ** points or **% at 10 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 20 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 30 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 40 pips away from entry.. Have a look at cTrader.. they do a perfect example of this, in advanced take profit section.
