Market Profile


Dogstar

Question

Hi, I'd like to start using market profile software in my spread betting account but, as far as I'm aware, IG don't offer that on their platform.

I've been told that you can add tools onto the MT4 platform. Is this true and, if so, how would I go about incorporating such third party software onto that platform?

Thanks,

D

Hi, correct, IG doesn't offer the market or volume profile indicators on their web based platform, not sure about the IG Prorealtime platform.

Both are available for MT4 as download indicators free from dozens of online sites that are added to your mt4 indicators folder and can then be added to any chart by drag and drop.

Ask here for more details if needed.

That's great. Thanks for the help. I'm currently using their regular web-based platform off a Mac, but once I've got new PC, I'll try to set it up (I've been told that the vast majority of these add-ons only work on a PC, or they perform much better on a PC). Or am I missing something?

Best wishes,

D

mt4 was written for pc and the hack for mac is just that so you may be right with regards add on custom indicators, I've not used mt4 on a mac at all.

I was contemplating paying for a particular brand of market profile software, which is supposed to be the best, but what's your opinion on the free stuff out there?

The 'pay for' indicators tend to have cleaner written code and more bells and whistles but are not necessarily better.

Below is a fairly basic free one but there are dozens of different ones to try before going to pay for.

Also consider Volume Profile which is very similar but instead of being time based is volume based.

    • Charting the Markets - February 6, 2023 FTSE 100, DAX and S&P 500 tiptoe lower following strong US jobs report. EUR/USD and GBP/USD are topping out while EUR/GBP rallies. And gold, Brent crude, and natural gas head lower, as payrolls strengthen the dollar.                         This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • Natural gas has been in a consistent downtrend over recent months, and Joshua Mahony expects to see this decline continue. Josh therefore favours a short position, with a stop-loss at 2630 and target of 2232. He also looks back at the recent EUR/USD, USD/JPY, aluminium, and USD/CAD trades.

    • What do we now know about the economic outlook given the meetings this week at the Federal Reserve (Fed), Bank of England (BoE) and European Central Bank (ECB)? IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor caught up with foreign exchange analyst Richard Snow, from Daily FX, who discussed the potential continuation of the long EUR/USD trade.
