PRT charts not being corrected


For the past two months or thereabouts I have been reporting flawed charts using the email facility in the ProRealtime software. Only one of the many charts that I have reported has been corrected. Listed below is just a fraction of the charts I have reported. You will see that some have been reported twice but to no avail!


UK Stocks 


3rd April: CHG


27th May: RSW 

13th June: RSW

14th June: JLT, FEV

22nd June: CRDA


US Stocks


8th May: CBOE

9th May: MRCY

15th May: ZION

20th May: CTSH

30th May: CBOE


12th June: AXP

13th June: CAT


20th June: PG

23rd June: CBPO


This is the bunch of US stocks I reported yesterday i.e. 24th June: ARMK, ARW, BLL, FNF, FBHS, PAC, HAS, IPGP, MCD, MHK, NEE, PKG, SSNC, STE, TRU, WCG, YUM


My focus is on the US and UK markets, I estimate the percentage of stocks with charts with flawed data is at least in double digits. Far beyond the "one or two that escape the net" as has been previously postulated or as you have articulated " Due to the large number of instruments we offer we sometimes do miss some errors on charts." I understand that the same flawed data powers the new IG charts too! On that basis, I find it incredulous, almost bizarre, even surreal that so much work is going into developing the new charts when IG does not have a reliable data feed!! It seems very much like the cart is being put before the horse. In the context of any developments to the charts where indicators are a derivative of price (are there any that are not?) the old IT adage is very appropriate, "garbage in, garbage out" 


Before I finished this post I thought I would go through the Dow Jones Industrial Index or Wall Street in IG speak to see how many defected charts would be revealed. The following is the result of that exercise:




More than half, i.e. 16 charts out of 30

The DFB chart of Mitie(MTO.LSE) is showing a long wick to the downside today on the one minute candle. The candle low is showing a misleading 272.5, whereas on the LSE's chart the candle is much different in form and is showing a low of 287.1




The spread on the current DFB is just under two points.

Above, I was referring to the one minute candle at the open although that should be obvious to those looking at the chart.

I have looked at three LSE stocks so far including the one above and the have all been affected by the bad tick on the open. The other two are ANTO and SPX.

    • All this is is a new different strain of a Coronavirus as Caseynotes says (a coronavirus is just a common cold type virus) - it's killing people who can't cope with it, most of the population will be able to cope with it, but if say 5% don't then that's 3 million dead The government don'[t want the bad press of letting 3 million people die, they also can't cope with the effect that would have on the hospital infrastructure in the UK - hence the lock down It's worked, but we can't hide, it will get us all infection wise at some stage now or in the future just like the Flu - then its a lottery whether you survive or die from it - the only way to get rid of this is to have a 100% shut down of everything globally (which is virtually impossible) to stop the spread and let the virus wipe itself out by not being able to reproduce The governments not helped the situation from its action as people will expect protection going forward - at some point the economy and money will decide what the government does

There will be around 30,000 deaths next year no matter what you do. We know this because the 5 year rolling average of excess deaths from respiratory infections is 30,000 a year, these types of viruses have killed off the old and weak every year for hundreds of thousands of years. As we've seen, lockdown can't prevent it and nor can a vaccine, these organisms mutate too fast. you are being played.   Meanwhile, back in reality;
