Can i ask for wall street futures, i can clock in short and long for the same time? and multiple shorts & longs?

Hi, the futures charts are from the arrow and dropdown box next to the name on the wall street cash (spot, dfb) chart.

to enter trades in opposite directions you need to select 'Force Open' on the deal/order ticket.

meaning to say, if first transaction i go for "long" and i decided to keep "long" .. for second transaction i should click force open then go for "short", then i should see 2 opposite contract on my position page right?

yes that's correct. Force open, also known as Hedging mode allows the 2 opposite trades to continue running.

If you select Net off then 2 trades running in the opposite direction will cancel each other out.

If you were sure of market direction and have a long trade open but the market then reversed you could force open a equal sized short trade and with both trades running your PnL would be static, then when the market reversed back up again close out the short hedge position.

For IG platform, all indexes are futures right, are there any actual index for us to spot for play?

Hi, no the DJIA is the underlying market for IG's cash (spot/dfb), the Dow futures are separate markets with different prices (see the alternative Dow charts from the dropdown box next to the Dow name on the chart).

    • Market Breakdown | WTI Oil, EURUSD, GBPNZD, EURAUDHere are the updates & outlook for multiple instruments in my watchlist.1️⃣ WTI Oil daily time frame️The market is trading in a long term bearish trend .After the last sharp bearish movement, the market is steadily recovering.Ahead, I see a major horizontal supply area.Probabilities are high, that the next bearish wave will initiate from there.2️⃣ EURUSD daily time frameAfter a breakout of a solid daily resistance, the market is preparing for its retest.Watch carefully the underlined zone and look for buying opportunities from there.3️⃣ EURAUD weekly time frameThe pair is currently approaching a weekly horizontal resistance cluster.Taking into consideration, that the pair is quite overbought, probabilities will be high to see a pullback from that4️⃣ GBPNZD daily time frameThe pair is currently retesting a broken neckline of an ascending triangle . As we discussed earlier, the trend line of a triangle and its neckline compose a contracting buy zone now.Chances will be high that the next bullish wave will initiate quite soon.For Additional confirmation use: Divergence Indicators
    • #CHFJPY: Classic Bearish Setup 🇨🇭🇯🇵   🔻CHFJPY has nicely respected a confluence zone based on a horizontal 4H resistance and a 0.5 retracement of the last bearish impulse.   The price formed a double top pattern on that and broke its neckline.   Probabilities will be high that the pair will drop lower soon. Goals: 141.172 / 140.363
