Price Ladder

Recommended Posts

Most prop firms use Ladder based trading software which displays bids/ask and past volume trades at that level for mostly futures via CME. Some forex firm displays the orders on same Ladder like Dukascopy .Is it possible for IG to give this feature.

Hi 

 

Thanks for sharing the idea! Ladders/DOM panels I have traded on in the past and find them very useful. They are particularly useful for clients that are scalping or those who want a more interactive trading experience. Although we do not offer such a tool at the moment it is something I would like to see and so I will be sure  to pass on this suggestion to the team that are responsible for dealing improvements. 

 

In the meantime there is ladder that is available on the ProRealTime platform that works in the same way but without the level 2 market depth. 

 

I hope that helps!

Hi .  There is currently an 'order book' but without the level 2 data I'm not sure how much value it is, just another way of seeing your own orders, not the markets. I may be missing something though.

Check out the setting tab bottom right. (ps, that preset QTY of 20 was a mistake, must remember to fix if I ever actually use this).

If i click on my platform this link it displays order ticket mabe ive messed up the settings

after your response i went on and looked at L2 Forex Direct Ladder so something good came out for it even if it was not what im looking for

 

youre right im interested in orders going through like Futures Forwards.

 

FXCM displays client volume and has On Real Balance volume indicator which is less than what Market Delta displays using Futures instruments.

 

similar thing for spread bet would have been useful to see volume going through so that volume price action strategies can be implemented in spread betting. hopefully in future

 

Thanks for looking into this for me.

, that's right, no level 2 data (market orders), the buy/sell columns will only display your orders on the IG version so not much use really. You used to get market depth on a FXPro demo account but not sure how accurate that was.

IG has a level 2 data service but it seems only for CFDs not spread betting accounts. I hope this changes in the future, also, IG says they hope to have volume data soon too.

Realised I said market orders meaning orders in the market so I meant limit orders in the market not actual 'market orders' sorry for the confusion.

    • Start the conversation The US election is scheduled for Tuesday 3 November 2020, when all 50 states and Washington DC will cast their votes. The vote spans six different time zones, so the first exit polls will be available at around 11pm (EST) when West Coast voting closes. In the UK, that will be around 4am (GMT) on Wednesday 4 November 2020. The election is likely to create opportunities for traders, with price movements expected across a range of forex pairs, indices and commodities in the run-up to polling day. Volatility related to the election could continue until congress certifies the result on Wednesday 6 January 2021, or even until the winner is inaugurated on Wednesday 20 January 2021. What should traders expect to see during the US election? All US markets tend to experience increased volatility in the run up to a presidential election, including USD forex pairs, indices and commodities. That’s because many investors will attempt to lock in positions before the result is announced – using polls to gauge public sentiment. The aim is to take full advantage of the price moves that occur when the country’s political direction is confirmed. At the top level, early indications suggest that the following could be on the cards if one of these two main candidates win: Donald Trump A Trump win could see an escalation of the trade war, potentially causing problems for some US exporters and having a negative impact on the value of the dollar. However, this effect could be offset by reassurances that tax cuts and deregulation will continue – boosting the US economy. Joe Biden A Biden win could see tensions in the trade war cool, providing a boost to US exporters and the dollar. However, these effects could be offset by tax increases for high-income households, and more limited deregulation.   How will markets react to the different candidates? Market commentary by IG Senior Market Analyst Joshua Mahony Stocks Markets hate uncertainty, and historically the perception has been that a new president might bring policies that could be harmful for stocks. This happened in 2016 when analysts were confident that a Trump presidency would spark a market collapse. But, we are now seeing that same fear creep in as people consider a Biden presidency and the potential uncertainty it could cause. Biden is openly more left-leaning, and his policies are expected to be geared towards human needs rather than those of investors and traders. This sentiment isn’t helped by suggestions that Biden would reverse Trump’s tax cuts, and it is likely that markets will rise alongside the potentially increased chance of a Trump victory as we approach the election. USD The value of a currency is supposed to reflect the health of an economy and its future prospects. Many are expecting Biden to be less focused on the markets than his Republican opponent, so the dollar could weaken in the event of a Biden victory. However, this effect could be offset if Biden is able to improve relations between the US and China after years of market anxiety. In this scenario, it would be the Chinese yuan which may benefit the most, with the trade war having sparked huge upside for USD/CNH. Keep in mind that if the wider markets fall on a Biden victory – including US stocks and indices – the dollar would likely rally in the short-term to reflect a risk-off move as investors turn to USD. Gold The prospect of a more expansive fiscal policy under Biden, and from a government which is happy to embark on substantial spending programmes, could provide a boost to precious metals. There’s a caveat here too, because in the past precious metals have also followed the same patterns as the stock markets during times of crisis. So, any collapse in equity markets that may come from a change at the White House could drag gold lower in the immediate period. Plus, while Trump has finally seen the kind of stimulus he would have hoped for, a Biden win could result in a more substantial stimulus package if the Democrats gain a foothold in Congress.   How are you trading?
