Question: Why the same patterns on different trades?


Recommended Posts

Hi there, I was comparing which markets to trade on the 1 hour time frame, and I've noticed that the FTSE100, Germany 30 and France 40, have all been following the same pattern for the last couple of days!

Why is this? Surely they should be different because they are different markets?

Hi, all the companies listed in the major indices are international and so are linked to the fortunes of the western countries as a whole and especially to the spending power of the mighty US consumer. The S&P tends to lead though an increasing case could be made for Nasdaq and the others tend to follow.

In the Indices thread I've been using Dow as a leading indicator for the Dax for a number of years. The one out of sync has been FTSE ever since the start of the Brexit uncertainty.

Thanks for telling me that. Appreciated.

    • This is the E1 contract from an IG France account. All the best, KoketsoIG
    • Dear @cate, We're sorry to hear you didn't like the new platform. The old platform is being decommissioned, so we recommend using the new one. You can find the same markets by using the search function. For example, when I typed 'crude oil' on both platforms. To select the desired contract on the new platform, simply click on the market you want and then choose from the dropdown menu. The E1 contract is only available for Europe accounts, not UK accounts on both platforms. Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • Hi, I've been holding onto the old platform as long as I could, because I really don't like the new one,  but now it's being decommissioned I'm trying to use the new one finally. ☹️  On the old platform I had a choice of WTI either as a 1 euro or a £1 contract, and the same for Gold. But when I search on the new platform all I get is the  £1 contract as well as an absolute ton of ETFs. It doesn't even say it's the £1 version, it just calls itself "spot gold" which is a bit confusing because it looks as though you might be buying a full lot, not just a mini contract. Can anyone tell me how to find the 1 euro contracts, or are they just not available on the new platform? Many thanks, Cate
