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.

    • and so suddenly, within the last few days; - Vit D finally gets govt recommended. - Invermectin finally gets approval. - HCQ now suggested as a treatment instead of being banned. - WHO finally revises PCR test to reduce huge ratio of false positives.   With all these much cheaper treatments now available it's lucky for big Pharma then that all their vaccines have already been bought up for the next few years. 🙄   .  
    • Interesting snip from Parliament TV.  NHS staff are now full on the Lateral Flow Test twice a week but still waiting for public LFT mass testing roll out. Asymptomatics testing -ve on LFT will not need a PCR and therefore an end to the PCR false positive pandemic. Govt claim to have several hundred million LFT kits, not sure why the holdup. First 15 min discusses LFT efficacy. https://parliamentlive.tv/event/index/c435f728-b042-4293-a877-42812aa90dee
    • Thanks for the post.  I would be interested in understand the costs associated with the relevant ETF. Do they carry the same sort of fees as one would expect from investing in the fund directly (management, performance, early exit etc.) or are they limited to the usual dealing costs - commission, SDRT? Also, for my clarity, we are talking about fund which may be issued by large investment managers (e.g. Blackrock - iShares, Baillie Gifford, PIMCO etc.) which are traded on the LSE
