Question on the auto pivot TA


Scotteyy

Question

Asked on the FX exchange thread however received no reply so hopefully one of the IG team can answer me here. Can you plot daily/weekly/monthly pivot's all at the same time?Switching between can be tedious. Also is it possible to ignore Sundays data? As this seems to mess with the pivot system as it calculates based on the 3 hours the market is open on Sunday.

Hi, not on the IG web based platform, you can on the IG MT4 platform where you can reload multiple indicators with different settings and many have a 'ignore Sunday data' setting.

Such a shame. MT4 is so ugly and confusing to use. IG is just great to look at, but this is my only problem. I can avoid the sunday data by just using sundays pivot points. I guess i'll just have to plot weekly pivots each week...

sure mt4 looks a bit dated but is still the most popular platform on the planet because it can do so much.

The problem with Sunday's shortened daily candle is that it mucks up the calculations for Monday's pivot points so an indicator that will ignore the Sunday candle and use Friday's instead gives the true PPs for Monday.

You can draw your own lines for Monday from a PP calc web page by imputing Friday's OHLC (or just use mt4 😉)

If MT4/MT5 could overcome the limitation of not being able to handle shares I would use it ...

PRT does similar things but it's only free under certain conditions and it is also very dated-looking.

MT5 is the platform upgrade from Metaquotes to trade shares.

Yeh I tend to just use sundays pivot points as thats based off fridays data and price does seem to react to it. I may get into using MT4, I have it downloaded, it just looks confusing :D I do wonder why IG can't just make it an option to allow daily/weekly/monthly pivots all at the same time, doesn't seem like a monumental task.

Because they can turn around and say 'you can do that in PRT'.

I've no idea what their business objectives are with the web platform but they don't seem to have any interest in making it feature-parity with PRT.

there is no 'one size fits all' platform, most platforms can be divided into made with the emphasis on dealing or made with the emphasis on charting, take your pick or use both, there is nothing to stop you having 2 platforms open at once.

TradingView seems to have the best features of all three combined.

yes but then you are into the realm of pay for subscription platforms and need to compare with the likes of Sierra Charts and PRT premium to name just a few. so a reminder then that you are using a free broker giveaway platform, it does all the basics and should be good enough for most but if you are looking for more then they are out there.

    • In the decentralized future, collaboration is key. Builders shaping the next wave of gaming, entertainment, finance, and community spaces require blockchain infrastructure that's scalable, cost-effective, and adaptable. They seek an ecosystem where creativity thrives, and support is abundant. This is where SAGA comes in. With its recent listing on Bitget exchange, its native token is gaining significant traction, signaling growing interest in SAGA's mission to empower Web3 builders.
    • The cryptocurrency industry has undergone substantial growth in recent years, largely fueled by centralized exchanges. However, with this growth comes a responsibility to adhere to regulatory standards. Recent revelations have cast a shadow over BingX, a prominent cryptocurrency exchange, as it has been found to be facilitating transactions for Iranian users in defiance of US sanctions. This blatant disregard for regulatory prohibitions, which are in place to combat terrorist financing and illicit arms procurement through crypto channels, raises serious ethical questions. The decision by BingX to engage with Iranian clients despite the associated risks and legal constraints has sparked concerns about the judgement of its management team. Of particular concern is the lax enforcement of Know Your Customer (KYC) verification, allowing users to withdraw significant sums without proper identity authentication. Inevitably, regulatory bodies such as the DOJ and SEC will seek explanations from BingX regarding these breaches. The repercussions of such inquiries are likely to be severe, with users already expressing alarm and initiating mass withdrawals. Beyond regulatory scrutiny, BingX's actions threaten its reputation and long-term viability. By flouting US sanctions and disregarding regulatory compliance, the exchange risks damaging its integrity and credibility. As BingX navigates this ethical quagmire, the extent of the fallout remains uncertain. What are your thoughts on the potential implications of these breaches for the exchange?
