I'm not too fussed about indicators, price and volume is really all I need.  A selectable moving average on the volume indicator would be a good inclusion.  The charting platform also needs to be more responsive, I'm still having issues where price is not displayed correctly on some stocks.  You often need to select another time frame and then revert back to daily chart to trigger the correct price/day.  I have provided many videos on this error to IG Support, and it remains an issue across multiple OS and web browsers. 

The alert selection process could be improved.  Something like what Tradingview offers, draw trend line/horizontal line or select MA and right click, select alert type.

The biggest thing IG Share trading platform is missing IMO is advanced order types.  Many users that swing trade like myself do a lot of their work out of market hours.  You determine your entry criteria, choose your stop loss level.  Currently a buy stop can only be set when market opens.  The ticket window should offer users a buy price/stop loss/take profit.  OCO (one cancels the other) orders, trailing stops etc,  Reduce only orders,  It would certainly make trading other markets much easier. 

Another improvement would be ticket management, currently users need to clear their stop loss orders before hitting Sell in the positions window to populate your total shares in the ticket window.  It would be handy if the sell button could trigger the stop cancelation to make execution quicker and easier.  A percentage slider would also make trading easier.  Users could slide or select 25%/50%/75%/100% buttons to buy or sell order executions to quickly sell or buy partials. ***picture provided as example***

Please also provide 2FA from Google or Microsoft,  security needs to improve.

    • Gold makes fresh #Leg 1 to the downside while electing the MAJOR bearish reversal of 1836.10. The nearest bearish reversals starts at 1814.10 and presents the current trading range.
    • Following on from with the NETW chart above showing the Gartley: Its VITAL for you to take the geometry 1 step further - you can wing it without, but to really nail things down, it would be prudent to understand and KNOW geometrical relationships  I've worked out all the geometrical relationships for all the ratios So for example If a market retraces to a 61.8% level and a ABCD is working out, its highly probable that the CD leg will reach 161.8% of the AB leg from C - that's because 1.618 and 61.8% are linked intrinsically - 61.8% is the INVERSE of 161.8% Take the NETW chart: Price retraced to exactly 50% level - this is NOT a Fib number its ratio related to the SQUARE - from the chart below have a stab in the dark of the number % that 50% is the Inverse of.............................................. That's right 200% - Once you know these ratios, you no longer have to scratch your head wondering why a market does things at certain levels Look how the market reacted once it balanced the prior main retracement of 50% at the 200% level - obviously important! Thought these markets were meant to be random????????????????????????????????????? The expectation would be a rally upwards from that zone THT
    • Hi @Irsa Welcome to the community and thanks for reaching out.   Different types of leveraged products The majority of leveraged trading uses derivative products, meaning you trade an instrument that takes its value from the price of the underlying asset, rather than owning the asset itself. The main leveraged products are: 1. Spread betting (UK only) A bet on the direction in which a market will move, which will earn more profit the more the market moves in your chosen direction – but more loss if it goes the other way.   2. Contracts for difference (CFDs) An agreement with a provider to exchange the difference in price of a particular financial product between the time the position is opened and when it is closed. For more information on our leveraged products please kindly visit this link: What is leverage in trading and spread betting vs CFDs   All the best - MongiIG
