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.

    • 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.
