Drawing lines on Charts



I use the standard IG web-based charting package with Google Chrome on a Mac desktop.

Is it possible to use the mouse and some combination of keyboard controls (like Shift, Cmd etc) to do:

1.  Perfectly horizontal lines between 2 points using the line tool.

2.  Lines between multiple points using the line tool.

......or is the line tool limited only to freehand between 2 points?

Thanks for your help.

Hi @Robby1,

The drawings available on the IG platform are limited to freehand drawings using fixed points. We do offer an advanced charting package called ProRealTime where you are able to perform more advanced drawing functions:


If this looks like something you would like to try out then you can activate ProRealTime for free on your IG demo account for a period of 60 days. You can also find out more about ProRealTime from these links:

    • I used to enjoy playing poker and blackjack at casinos, but my love for gambling turned into an addiction when I started losing more often than winning. It took hitting rock bottom for me to seek help and change my habits. I joined a support group and worked with a therapist to develop healthier habits. Now, I still go to casinos, but I do so with caution and moderation, setting strict limits and avoiding addictive games. I've learned to control my impulses and make smarter decisions when it comes to my finances.
    • Hi @MayorofBelsize and All,  After checking with the relevant team, the integration will be finalized to mid year. It will be a staggered launch so not all countries will get access at the same time. We will confirm the details of the integration and the date by email to all our clients. We apologize for the delay and inconvenience.  All the best, OfentseIG
    • #NZDUSD: Classic Top-Down Setup   🔻NZDUSD is approaching a solid horizontal daily resistance. We see a strong bearish reaction from that: the price formed a rising wedge pattern and a head and shoulders pattern, the support of the wedge and the neckline of h&s were successfully broken.   I believe that the pair may drop. Goals: 0.6237 / 0.622
