Time Zone & Trading Hours on US Indices not working correctly


ST

Question

"Display intraday charts of this market: from 14:30 to 21:00 (UTC: 00:00)"

 

I have US indices set as above in PRT charts in order to get cash charts, however, the charts open at 14:00 on the hourly time frame, not 14:30. The 5 min and 15 min TF is unaffected, have n't checked the others. 

 

Could you please correct this?

 

Thanks

Hi Tim,

 

Apologies for the delay in replying, the boards' notification of reply facility is being selective in which of my posts it responds too despite Dan's attempts to resolve the issue. See the other thread if interested.

 

US Indices: I would expect the 14:00 (GMT) candle to open at the 14:30 price and show 30 minutes worth of data. As the US stock markets close on the hour the rest of the hourly candles would show one full hour of data.

 

LSE Indices: Similarly, I would expect the 16:00 (GMT) candle to show 30 minutes worth of data and close at 16:30. The other candles from 08:00 to show one full hour of data.

 

I this is not true then trend lines are thrown out on the hourly time frame, this I have experienced.

A related deficiency in IG PRT charts is that applying the cash hour settings to non-intra-day time frames ticking the box:

 

Apply settings above to non-intraday timeframes (Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly)”

 

drastically reduces the chart real estate. For example, without this ticked, the FTSE100 can be viewed from April 1984 but when applying the intra-day settings to that of cash hours it's only possible to go back to June 2015. It is as important to have the higher time frame candles closing at the same time as the market! Again if this is not true it throws out trend lines. In addition, it is a pain in the derriere to have to keep changing chart settings to re-assess recent price action in the context of the longer term perspective.

 

I hope you can get these issues resolved Tim.

 

Thank you in anticipation of your efforts.

Data Flaws.png

 

This screen shot illustrates my point in my last post above. I have used the FTSE100 as an example. The fibonacci expansion tool was used on the hourly time frame and wthe yellow trend lines were also drawn on the hourly time frame. The above is showing the FTSE100 when dropped down to the 30 minute time frame. At point "a" inside the ellipse the 16:00 candle is the red candle on the left obviously showing 30 minutes of data. The red candle to the right is the 8am opening the following day. It can be seen that the expansion tool terminates below the candle as it is at the low price of the hourly candle i.e. at 17:00 not 16:30 and so distorting the expansion levels! Similarly, the lower trend line is not in the right place because of the same flaw. I hope that makes the flaw in the charts clear.

Hi 

 

The reason for this is actually because on an hourly timeframe the charts can not display a 30-min increment. The same would apply on a 4-hour timeframe as well. 

 

We'll pass this on to IT-Finance to see if there's any plans to change this. Just to confirm, what would you expect to see? Would the first candle be only 30-mins long, or the last candle? 

 

Tim

    • The epidemic in recent years has produced profound changes in people's lifestyles, and many of their activities have started to be developed in the virtual world, which plays an important role in promoting the development of the universe of meta. Games, as an important part of the universe of meta, will be the first industry to gain the benefits , but the following conditions are still indispensable for blockchain games to achieve better development.   - Wallets and Exchanges. Through the use of wallets, game users can truly take control of the assets in the game, and exchanges provide a trading platform and liquidity for these game assets NFT, helping users trade and revitalize their game assets. Wallets are a key application for depositing blockchain assets. Currently, wallets such as Metamask are not enough to support the extensive adoption of block games, and wallets will further advance community drive the popularity of blockchain games.  - Game playability. The biggest difference between blockchain games and traditional games is that gamers are also investors. Many blockchain games have gone out of course, treating all users as investors only and forgetting that the essence of making games is to develop high-quality games that users are interested in paying for. If most people play a game just to make money, and no one is ready to pay for it, it becomes a side-scam. The revenue of the participants of the side scam comes from the money of the people who come later, and if there are not enough people who come later, they will not be able to cash in the revenue, leading to the breakdown.  - Speed and performance. A high level of concurrency is the characteristic of game applications, so Wax, Coinan Chain and Polygon, which are public chains with a high level of concurrency and low fees, have attracted a large number of game developers. In the future, with the maturity of technologies such as Ethernet Layer 2 and slice scaling, as well as the maturity of other gaming public chain technologies compatible with EVM, blockchain games will have a better development and operation environment.  - Cross-chain and interaction. Cross-chain and interaction of game assets will be a direction of future development of metaverse games, and blockchain should be connected and accessible like the Internet. The maturity of cross-chain technology in the future will promote the cross-chain transfer of game assets and NFT, and improve the interaction experience of the system                                                                                     The game should maintain the operation of the project by relying on the payment of some users or selling profitable products, just like the new blockchain game Fairy Cat in 2023, which developed diverse gameplay for players and increased the playability of the game, thus got the recognition of many players. Blockchain games need to work hard on game experience and playability. Token economics is essentially just a kind of interest structure , and even good token economics cannot replace the development, operation and profitability of the project itself. It is believed that with the maturity of the above conditions, more and more game developers and investors will enter this industry and together promote the production of some blockchain games with beautiful graphics, first-class experience and high playability.
    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
