Display in USD?

Question

Hey,

 

I'm in Australia and I'm looking at getting the platform to display charts etc in USD to match up with triggers I have signed up to receive. Is it possible to have the platform display in USD?

 

Regards,

 

Stevencr00k.

Hi , thanks for the post and welcome!

 

Which market charts are you looking at exactly?  You can change the base currency of your trading account to be USD, but not how the underlying market is priced.  So for example, if you are looking at the ASX, this will always be quoted in AUD, but currency pairs will be quoted in the second named currency (eg AUD/USD is quoted in USD).

 

If you can specify what you are looking to do then we can see if we can help!

 

Thanks,

Hannah

Hi , thanks for your post.

 

If you'd like to change the base currency of your account, you'll just need to contact our helpdesk.  They'll confirm you don't have any open positions and that if you have a balance, you're happy for it to be converted at the spot rate plus 0.3%.

 

Thank you,

 

Hannah

Hi  - please send an email request from your registered email address to helpdesk@ig.com with the following info

 

Name

Date of birth

Address

Account (specifically - e.g. if you hold 2 CFD accounts let us know which one)

Base currency change from >> to

 

We should then be able to get that sorted pretty quick.

    • As good as Litecoin has been in the first half of 2019 it has been just as bad in the second half of 2019. It has literally given back all the gains. Those traders who trade both 'long' and 'short' will have made money on the move upwards and then also made money by shorting on the move downwards.  It is difficult to anticipate how Litecoin will do over the coming month but I think it is likely to take the lead from its father in Bitcoin. 
    • $200 will be an important and psychological price area. If this is breached then Bitcoin Cash could easily go down to the $140 price area. This would be a big blow to the bulls and also damage confidence in the asset.  Bears will be enjoying the move downwards and should be profiting from the current trend and price action.   
    • So after a break upward yesterday morning was followed by a pullback for the indices with the usual trade dispute back and forward plus an escalation in the Hong Kong protests with a stand off between students and the police plus the US senate getting involved to stir things up. Looking at the Dax and Dow charts there was a 9am break upwards followed by a reversal, some might say that was a stop run but they are usually not much more than 20 points or so, some might say it was an exhaustion bar on the Dax but exhaustion bars are on the end of a run up or run down not 8 days into a flag. Inevitably some will say it's the beginning of end of the world (again) but it looks just like your average pullback to me. Looking at the bottom chart compares 2 different assets with 2 similar looking charts, they should be because one is the Dow index while the other is one of the main Dow constituents, the funny thing is that one of the charts 'the crowd' are perpetually heavy on the short side while in the other they are perpetually heavy on the long side 🤔
