News icon should only highlight current day's news

Hi,

 

I posted some feedback and had it suggested that it might be worth adding it here as well.  If anyone else thinks this is a good idea then please shout and perhaps it will be implemented.

 

My proposal is that the news icon in a Watchlist should only be highlighted if there has been a news item published on that day.  I don't feel there's any point to this feature if it is highlighted for previous days news that you've already read.  I constantly need to open up the news feed to check if there is anything new that I might have missed which is a royal PITA.

 

Ideally, once you have read all current news for a stock, the icon should not be highlighted.   Or perhaps you can click a button to say you've caught up.  A second best solution would be that it is only highlighted on the day if there is news.

 

Cheers.

Hi 

 

Welcome to the IG community! The point you have made I can really see the value in. We do offer the signal centre on the platform that has the icon highlighted when there is a new signal and so having fresh news highlighted I could see as a possibility and for that I would love to the share your idea with the team.

 

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and if you have any other thoughts then do please share them!

This is looking better but I'm still seeing some strange behaviour.  For example, today, my watchlist showed 2 stocks with news items this morning.  Then just now I notice that Just Eat PLC has a news icon flash up and I checked the news flow.  The last item is dated 30-11-2016 16:35, so hardly current.

 

Cheers.

Tim, this is totally buggered at the moment.  Yesterday and today I'm not seeing any news icons on my watchlist but am seeing them on my open positions.

    • This is not an acceptable explanation for me unfortunately, I am fully aware of the need to move spreads and I had accounted for that. Especially at the open of a market, but your spread was totally unreasonable the spread on DEC contracts is already at 130pip standard, to increase it to 400pips and hold it there even after 5 mins of trading. As my execution was a 09:06 the main market volatility had already been accounted for.   So disappointing after 6years being a customer and on a profitable trade as well: 
    • Dear @MB1470, Thank you for your post. Please note that dealing spreads on shares are subject to variation, especially in volatile market conditions or other unusual circumstances.  Market spreads can widen significantly, particularly at the beginning and end of the trading day, and minimum spreads may exist. Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • This morning at the market open on NOVO DEC contracts. On Spread Bet.    the spread moved from 138pips to close to 400 pips? How can this be reasonable the candle is only displayed on a 15-2min time period not on smaller periods. At market open 09:00 ????? How is this even remotely reasonable?
