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 

 

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?

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.

    • Just recently, I wrote an article about how a Solana blockchain art project (Artrade) is helping artists raise their earnings and even further transforming their physical works into RWA essentially NFTs. With that in mind, I came across Rarible, a marketplace that focuses on digital art and NFTs and the similarities of the platforms caught my attention. Rarible allows artists to sell their creations as NFTs, essentially digital certificates of ownership and cuts out middlemen, connecting artists directly with buyers. Beyond trading, Rarible offers a somewhat user-friendly interface for creating NFTs, even for beginners.   The platform unlike Artrade is built on the Ethereum blockchain and uses its own token, RARI, for governance and rewarding active users. In the long term they seem building with the goal of becoming a DAO in the future While it’s still early days, I have no doubt Rarible offers a unique approach to buying, selling, and creating digital art, and the recent listing on Bitget will further expose it to new communities and potential investors.     Do you think RARI's approach will be sustainable as a marketplace for NFTs?
    • Soybeans Elliott Wave Analysis  Function - Trend  Mode - Impulse  Structure - Impulse for (5)  Position - Wave 1 of (5) Direction - Wave 2 of (5) Details - Wave 1 of (5) completing with a diagonal. Wave 2 bounce is emerging before the price turns downside for 3 of (5). Invalidation now at 1226’6. Not much has changed since the last update.   Soybean Price Analysis: Elliott Wave Perspective Signals Continued Downward Trend   In the realm of commodity trading, Soybean has recently undergone a significant downturn, marking a nearly 7% drop since March 21st. This decline appears to be part of a broader trend that commenced back in June 2022. However, before this recent descent, there was a brief period of respite characterized by a corrective bounce starting in late February.    Delving deeper into the price action, an Elliott Wave analysis sheds light on the intricacies of Soybean's movement. The daily chart's decline since June 2022 reveals a corrective pattern, delineated into waves A-B-C, as denoted by blue annotations.   The initial wave, labeled as Blue Wave 'A', terminated at 1249 in October 2023, exhibiting a distinct diagonal pattern. Subsequently, a modest rebound ensued, marked by Blue Wave 'B', which concluded at 1398 in November 2023. However, the ascendancy was short-lived as the bears regained control, manifesting in the ongoing development of Blue Wave 'C'. This wave, evolving into an impulse wave, has currently progressed to wave (5) following the completion of wave (4) in March 2024.   Zooming in on the H4 chart, a granular analysis reveals the sub-waves of wave (5). Wave 1 of (5) concluded with a diagonal structure, followed by a corrective phase as the price undergoes a temporary upside correction to complete wave 2. Despite uncertainties regarding whether wave 2 has fully concluded or will undergo another upward leg, the overarching trajectory remains clear – a downward break is anticipated to continue wave 3 of (5), leading to further downside movement.   In light of this analysis, the prevailing sentiment favors sellers, who continue to assert dominance over the commodity market. As long as the price remains below 1226’6, the outlook remains skewed towards further downside potential, with the possibility of reaching the lowest price point since November 2020.   In conclusion, the Elliott Wave perspective offers valuable insights into Soybean's price dynamics, signaling a continued bearish trajectory in the near term. While short-term fluctuations may occur, the broader trend suggests that sellers are likely to maintain control, shaping the commodity's price action in the foreseeable future.   Technical Analyst : Sanmi Adeagbo   Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
