Redraw chart to keep specific limit/spots on Short Time-spans in View

Recommended Posts

Good evening,


I have an idea for the Charts on the new platform - this might be something that is already possible. Apologies if so.


I personally use Limits & Stops quite often, so I like seeing them quite clearly on my chart as it nears a particular target or, stop. 


Often enough with short time frames (Ticks,or Seconds) the chart moves out of the 'window' after you've left the chart alone for 5-10 minutes. 


As a result, This often forces me to zoom out my chart range where I can once again see my "Limit Line".  Another technique I use is switching from Tick to Hourly, then back to Tick - which would re-calculate the graph nicely. 


If there was an option to consistently refresh a chart to keep a specific limit in view. This saves me having to keep micro-managing small chart windows, as points draw either further away or closer to a point. 


Another term I could explain this would be Snap chart to present vs limit line.


I understand that a Chart can have multiple positions & limits, which is why I'm expanding the suggestion to re-draw the chart to keep a specific limit line in view.    


I hope this doesn't sound too silly!





P.S. If a Moderator does read this, if this could be moved to Suggestions forum under Using IG Platforms & Charts. It would be better placed there!

This request is actually quite a popular one, we have received a number of requests for a feature that would disable Autoscroll, similar to what MT4 has.


I will send your suggestion to our developers to consider for future updates, I can definitely see the use of having this feature on small timeframes.

    • Apropos of market abuse, it must be good to play golf with Orange Fury and place your bets before the tweets ... Unknown actors may have made billions from the turmoil Donald Trump has created in the markets through erratic tweets, shoot-from-the-hip foreign policy, and the trade war with China, according to a new report. A Vanity Fair deep-dive into stock market activity has uncovered several instances where advantageous trades were made suspiciously close to market-moving events.   https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/mystery-traders-made-1-8bn-191335812.html
