IG and TradingView Charts Different


Lydia285

Question

Hi,

It seems that the charts on IG Web Platform vs. TradingView are quite different. 
See photo. Both taken at the same time.

- For charting on Tradingview, what should I use to be as accurate as possible? Example: FXCM / Forex.com / Oanda charts?
- Which candlestick countdown timer does IG platform follow?

Hi, there are a number of differences that will cause charts to look different.

The accurate chart to use is the broker's chart you are trading with, those are the prices on offer to you, no 2 brokers will offer the exact same prices at any one moment, they all track the underlying market but none can offer you the exact exchange price, all brokers source their prices from an array of different liquidity providers. 

The platform itself will handle data differently and will not look exactly the same as the broker's chart for the broker's data  Tradingview is displaying.

The time zones also cause the charts to look different, the other 3 brokers are US based while IG UK uses GMT (+1 in summer) while IG Australia uses Australian EST and I think IG US uses US Chicago. The time zones are stamped by the broker and can't be changed except through a third party platform like Tradingview or Prorealtime.

Different brokers also have different weekly opening, IG opens on Sunday evening so IG markets have 1, 2 or 3 hourly candles on a Sunday which creates an extra day and so both the price and indicator data will project differently onto a chart.

Hope this helps.

    • Hah, can't believe they censored out the word d@mn.    
    • Interesting chart of Scandinavian all-cause deaths in 24 month periods shows no covid effect at all. The winter of 2019/20 was mild with fewer seasonal deaths than ususal but then the novel coronavirus was released and the deaths that would have occured during winter occured in April instead.  This is why so many countries are showing no real increase in all-cause deaths per year. It also shows that the covid death numbers are fake and are rebranded deaths from other causes. The vast majority of people who catch covid have mild or no symptoms at all, for those with symptoms the infectous stage only lasts 10 days max. From then on you have natural immunity. If you've had SARS-CoV-2 anytime over the last 17 years you will have T-cell immunity, if you have been in contact with covid-2 this last year you will also have covid-2 antibody immunity. Push the myth that covid can be spread asymptomatcally, mass test asymptomatic people with a test that is designed to detect old dead viral RNA that their immune system has destroyed and when the test shows positive pretend they actually have covid. We are constantly in contact with viral material, with an effective immune system we deal with it and don't get sick. Testing people who are not sick you will find old viral material if they came in contact with the virus up to a month previously, same if you apply the test to someone who has died.  Counting these people as covid 'Cases/Deaths' is a fraud and is done to boost the numbers and perpetuate the climate of fear. No return of freedom for you until you're begging for health identity cards, oh - and may as well add finance and energy usage details while we're at it.   .
