Trying to understand where each data set is derived from as candle open close positions and volume QTY patens are different for the same instrument and time scale  at  the same time stamp for each.

ig platform spread bet, ( OTC Contracts ?)

ig platform share dealing ( Exchange shares)

PRT thru IG Spread bet (?)

PRT thru IG share dealing (?)

 

As these differ one may show increasing volume and another showing decreasing volume for the same time stamp.   Candle opens can be different even different colour to  the other data source.  Obviously each difference would cause a different trading reaction / thought.

 

To test set up each version so you can see all live on the same  time scale and watch closely.

    • This is not an acceptable explanation for me unfortunately, I am fully aware of the need to move spreads and I had accounted for that. Especially at the open of a market, but your spread was totally unreasonable the spread on DEC contracts is already at 130pip standard, to increase it to 400pips and hold it there even after 5 mins of trading. As my execution was a 09:06 the main market volatility had already been accounted for.   So disappointing after 6years being a customer and on a profitable trade as well: 
    • Dear @MB1470, Thank you for your post. Please note that dealing spreads on shares are subject to variation, especially in volatile market conditions or other unusual circumstances.  Market spreads can widen significantly, particularly at the beginning and end of the trading day, and minimum spreads may exist. Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • This morning at the market open on NOVO DEC contracts. On Spread Bet.    the spread moved from 138pips to close to 400 pips? How can this be reasonable the candle is only displayed on a 15-2min time period not on smaller periods. At market open 09:00 ????? How is this even remotely reasonable?
