Where are certain Instruments disappeared?

Recommended Posts

Certain instrument like Digital 100 cannot be seen. And even options. Even though I somehow found Digital 5 Min FX, which i pinned to my dashboard . Cannot find Digital FX 2 Hours.

 

I hope they are available in the new platform. By the way the new platform is pretty well done.

 

Well done IG.

 

Kind Regards

Hi 

 

Thank you for trying out the New Web Trading Platform, the digital 100's are limited at the moment compared to the classic platform but options and more digital 100's are going to be added to the new platform in future. 

 

If you have any suggestions on other changes you would like to see then please let us know.

 

Thanks

Anton

The new site is just dreadful. Like other users I have wasted a lot of time searching in vain for Options. In my case it's the Options (FTSE) and Options (Germany)

 

Email today says that later this year the classic platform will cease to be. As I said to the support staff, the new site isn't an improvement for me, it's cumbersome, it's a massive step backwards, especially when the monthly FTSE/DAX options I trade are  no longer there and I loathe it, even the look and feel is a step backwards.

 

As soon as they stop with the classic platform, it's bye bye IG.

Hi , thanks for the post and sorry to hear you're unhappy with the new platform.

 

I completely understand your frustration at the ongoing absence of the full product offering, with one of the main markets missing being options.  These are taking longer than expected to roll out to the new platform, but it is of course our objective to introduce them as soon as possible so that a smoother transition can take place for clients from classic to new.  The previous platform would not be phased out until the new platform is fully functional, and I believe our update email is to begin to prepare clients for the fact that at some point in the future they will no longer have access to the classic.

 

We can also acknowledge that the new platform is a complete change to what you are used to, and may not seem logical at first. However, this is very much a progressive step in terms of how the platform works, the software and programmes it relies and runs on, and the potential for further development.  We are happy to hear any feedback at any point, and the main thread for this can be found here.

 

Once again, I apologise for the delay in full functionality, and appreciate your patience, and all our clients'.

 

Thank you,

Hannah

I agree but for different reasons> My main one is the useless time range for tick charts. I also want to trade options occasionally.

    • Hi everyone,  so, those of you following my FTSE - Daily Trades thread may know, I'm looking for new strategies to tackle the market. Was starting to think about this today and made a few thoughts. First one I came up with in the process is the following and utilises 'Andrew's Pitchfork' a rather odd name for a simple principle.   Thought Process I was going back to the basics and starting to think about the fundamentals of trading: Buy low and sell high. Or go short high, and buy back low later. So the key of my new strategy has to somewhat depended on these fundamental trading principles. Next I was thinking, looking at a chart, in what region can the price considered to be "low" and in what region would I consider it to be "high". I was looking at a 5min chart and looking at the whole day. I was drawing one line at the low of day, one line at the high of day, those are obviously the extremes where everyone can agree prices are low / high. Then I draw a line right in the middle between the two, where the price is neither high nor low. Then I draw a line at 25% and one at 75% and said, if the price is between the low of day (0%) and 25%, I consider the price to be low. If the price is between 75% and high of day (100%) I consider the price to be high. In between (25%-75%), it's neither high nor low. If I'd somehow manage to always buy in the low range and sell in the high range (or go short vice versa), then this could be a decent strategy. The next problem I was facing is, I've done this analysis on the previous day, where we know high and low of day. How can this strategy work out for future price movements, where high and low of day are unknown. Andrew's Pitchfork This is where the Pitchfork comes in. The assumption I'm making is that if I extrapolate the 4 required levels (low of day, high of day, 25% and 75%) from the previous day to the following day, the strategy still works. This is because more often than not, prices move up and down around a certain level, without breaking away from it and moving onto the next level. (This obviously has to be proven with data - more to that later) The way the pitchfork works is exactly how the 4 required levels are drawn up. The pitchfork is defined over 3 points: High, Low and Mid-point. It then draws 5 levels on the chart: High (100%), 75%, Mid (50%), 25%, Low (0%) So how does it work The way I imagine it to work is the following: 1) Identify previous day's high and low 2) Draw the pitchfork in the chart with aligning its high and lows on the daily high and low. The mid point is exactly in the middle of daily high and low. This draws a horizontal pitchfork in the chart. 3) When the price of the asset falls below 25%, place a buy stop order at the 25% level. Once the price rises again and breaks through that level, the order gets executed. (vice versa with shorting above the 75% level) 4) Stop Loss is right below (size of the spread) the low of the pitchfork. Target is somewhere above 50%-75%. You have at least a 1:1 risk-to-reward ratio. Need to calculate target level by asset based on historic patterns. Does it work? Don't know yet. So far I've manually painted a few of those pitchforks in the chart for the past couple of days on FTSE100, NASDAQ, CL and NG and it seems it works more often than it doesn't. Cases where it clearly doesn't work is when there's a strong move to either direction, aka price breaks-out and moves to a different level than it was the day before. Interestingly when this happens, the strategy wouldn't necessarily always result in a loss, but sometimes the entry conditions would never be triggered in the first place. E.g. if we start the day already in the high region (above 75%) and then never fall below it - no order triggered on that day. On the negative side, huge breakout opportunities are missed with this strategy, so worth looking into a complementary strategy which works specifically for break-outs. Next steps Next, I'm trying to backtest the strategy. Will need to pull a whole lot of data and analyse. Hope to have that done over the weekend. Will update the thread accordingly. Data I'm trying to get: Win ratio, Where's the optimum take profit level, Time of day where this usually plays out (my idea is to hook this in with the ATR analysis I've done and trade this pattern at times of high ATR, aka FTSE, DAX in the morning, NASDAQ, NG, CL in the afternoon)  First success First successful example trade taken this afternoon on CL. You see nicely how the pitchfork is drawn on the chart and is derived by the high and low of the previous day. At 14.30 today the price dipped below the 25% level. I set the buy stop order at the 25% level, which got triggered at 14.35. The price afterwards makes a sweep move up to the 50% level, where my limit sell order gets triggered at 15.15. It would've been possible to play it up until the 75% level, but wanted to be safe, without having the data yet. Could've been luck - who knows.   What do you think of this approach?        
    • just to add to bigdeal's reply SBs can be either cash/daily funded bet or futures/forward which have a separate chart accessed from the dropdown box next to the chart title. for cash/dfb there is no expiry but you paid an overnight interest fee, this charge does not apply to futures/forwards which have a larger spread instead. see pic.
