Exclude Sundays from ATR on IG charts?


I suspect that the Average True Range (ATR) indicator for IG Forex charts is calculated including Sundays. The True Range (TR) of a weekday  is not reflective of the TR during the 3 hours of Sunday trading.  Can Sundays be excluded from the ATR calculation on IG charts? A period of 10 for calculating ATR  would better reflect recent daily volatility than the current default 14.

    • Look at the enormous divergence on the RSI
    • Here's what I'd be looking for if Germany was open right now.  Since it's the weekend, we'll see a different picture when it reopens. Hourly time frame   How it looks on the daily time frame.  RSI and MACD aren't positive yet, they're headed that way though.
    • I bought some Gilead shares on Friday morning (UK time) @ around £64. Since then the price has gone down I was making a loss at  market close time @ 10:00. I just checked the chart on IG this evening and it is showing the closing price as $74.09. Am I seeing things(Wishful thinking:)? If so can someone please explain why it is showing the latest price as $74.09?
