News icon should only highlight current day's news


Recommended Posts

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.

    • They caused me a loss of £10k as I was long and planning to keep my trades. Anyway, looks like the SEC is going to go after them and to be honest I'm glad because I found it extreme on us small investors to lose all our money because they delisted xrp. https://coil.com/p/XRP_Productions/SEC-Sues-Crypto-Exchanges-for-Delisting-XRP-and-Hurting-Innocent-Investors/VfGRw237d        
    • As you rightly say, based on their decision making affect on existing customer positions, faith in IG being a decent ethical organisation is shattered - I would never have thought a company who had such a good reputation and project such s customer inclusive approach could **** its loyal customers on this manner; please email their Compliance department if not already done in case of future litigation
