IG Survey and ProRealTime Functionality

Recommended Posts

I recently filled in a survey regarding the IG platform services and broadly speaking I am quite satisfied, hence I am still using the service.

 

However, since filling it in I have found some areas which I would definitely like to see added to the IG platform functionality:

 

1. Upgrade ProRealTime to v.10.3

 

2. Add the 'export DDE' function to the IG ProRealTime offer - there are a number of things this would enable me to do in terms of calculations that I would like to complete but am currently unable to do unless I can export the data into a spreadsheet, I understand this is possible in other platforms.

Hi 

 

The v10.3 is something that we are very much looking forward to and we expect to see this in the new year. It is hard to be more specific as there has to be various tests done by ourselves as well as ProRealTime to ensure a seamless integration of the new features. Although it is their platform it is our pricing that is fed through it and so that has to be no error of translation to this. With that said many of the changes are expected to be cosmetic and so this testing process should be relatively short. 

 

With regards to the DDE export function this is something that has been passed to the charts team as feedback and we may offer it at some point in the future, however the relationship with have with the exchanges that we get equity pricing from stipulates that the data is not to be able to be exported. Again I hope this is something that can be reviewed in the future. 

 

I hope that helps!

    • Hey @dmedin, our analysts did a piece on this yesterday you might be interested in.  https://www.ig.com/uk/news-and-trade-ideas/what-will-happen-to-the-premier-oil-share-price-after-the-electi-191210
    • They are expecting a good Christmas and will be opening a new robotic 🤖 warehouse in 2021.  So it looks good for a wee long.  🐮
    • When looking at these markets and the trading behaviour of the average retail trader it seems to me that many don't really understand the market they are trading, there are also psychological factors that influence decision making to the detriment of trading success. If you are not confident in your understanding of the market then you are solely dependent on technical analysis but TA is not a given, it can only play out if assisted by fundamental and macro factors, those factors currently point to bull continuation. So the US major indices are routinely hitting new all time highs, the retail trader thinks they need to sell the high in order to buy back lower (buy low sell high right) so the retail trader (the crowd) are constantly trying to pick the tops (and patting themselves on the back thinking they are being contrarian). The positioning data of IG clients tell us this is exactly what's happening. Every time price goes higher the sell position ratio increases, when price is falling in a down trend the buy position ratios go higher. So clearly this is all wrong, when price is continually rising you need to buy high and sell higher. You buy breakouts or pullbacks, you should not be looking to sell a bull trending market at all. So why do they do it? The market is too high (no it's not), it must be the bears turn (wait and see first), but I need to sell the highs, the saying says so (no, you're not an investor), the chart is looking 'toppy' (just no), the TA is pointing down (doesn't matter without fundy and macro assist). An understand of a market comes with experience, until it does stick with the basics and look for longs in an uptrend, don't try to second guess the market and end up constantly fighting against it.
