New Measure feature under Drawings

Recommended Posts

Feature that would allow you determine how much a share has risen or fallen quickly. Drag a line from one point to another and would give you the % difference and also the steps to get there. This feature already exists on many graphs. 


I would really like to see such a feature added, I have to always do a small calculation to get the % and amount difference. This is such a small but very useful feature that i really use a lot.



An example of how this feature works can be seen on https://www.dailyfx.com website on any of their graphs.

on the left hand side there is a ruler and you use Shift+ left click and drag what you need.


the following is a link also to their site with a link to a Tencent graph where this can be tested.

Welcome to the IG community and thanks for sharing your idea.


The measuring feature has been a topic that has come up in the past and it is indeed available on the advanced platform we offer called ProRealTime. This can be accessed through the Tools menu on the IG platform and gives traders access to an advanced and fully customisable platform with over 100 indicators! Below is some more information about it. 





I hope that helps!

    • Hi  For those interested in the Video Gaming industry we recently interviewed the product manager for VanEck Video Gaming & Esports ETF to talk about how the industry will perform as lockdown measures start to ease and what is fueling future growth https://blubrry.com/igtradingthemarkets/74972956/how-investors-can-profit-from-the-growing-video-gaming-and-esports-industry/   Are there any other exciting sectors you would like to see covered on the podcast by an industry expert?
    • Yes I am aware that I have selected the guaranteed stop level as I have been for a while in preparation for when the live account is approved, the live account will have to use a guaranteed stop on each trade, which I think is a good idea as it reduces exposure to risk and the margin required as it is a controlled risk as apposed to an uncapped or un controlled risk. Normally the stop limit on this trade is a minimum of 8 points, in this screen shot it it is set at 30 points which has increased the required margin to $1775, when it is at 8 or 10 the margin would be around $1300. If I set the stop to 139 points the margin will increase to $17,000 or more, obviously blocking the trade with a $10,000 account fund. Thank you for your suggestion,  however it isn't because I have selected a guaranteed stop as I normally do. having given this some thought, I guess if there is excessive price volatility / uncertainty, as there is when the price is at 1.39000 the system sets the GSL very high for protection, the price could easily run away, that being said if it was hit at 139 it would lead to a massive loss, maybe $7000.
