Indicator windows adjustment

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to the platform so forgive me if i'm missing the really ovious answer to this.

After adding indicators to the lower area of my chart eg. RSI, i can't change the height of or minimise the indicator to leave more of the screen to view the tick chart.


Any help appreciated

Just spoke to to help desk and this seems to be a problem with Firefox browser. When logged in through Chrome, indicators all able to be resized etc.

Thanks for getting back to the Community. We try and make the desktop dealing platform as 'cross compatible' with all primary browsers, however we do generally recommend Chrome as it's the most stable and has a built in flash player which will always be the most up to date version. Some other browsers often require additional plugins. 


Over time we do iron out the kinks, but I would always suggest trying the following:


  1. First try logging out, restarting your browser and then logging back in. A lot of issues are resolved by the ol' turn it off and on again approach as this sometimes clears old erroneous data and performs any system browser, or plugin, updates.
  2. If issues persist, clear the cache from your web browser. Each browser is different but you'll generally find this option in the settings.
  3. If you’re using our classic platform and your charts are blank, try clearing your flash cache. To do this, click ‘delete all sites’ in the website storage settings panel on this page: https://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager07.html
  4. If your layout are not responding, go to ‘layouts’ in the main tool bar then selecting ‘standard/reset’
  5. If these steps do not solve the issue please try using another web browser to access the platform. We recommend Google Chrome, but also support Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
  6. Very finally, and specifically on Google chrome, you may have to allow Flash and make sure it's 'Always On'. In the URL bar where you type in IG.com you should be able to see, in green and on the left, 'IG Group Limited'. Click on here and make sure Flash is set to Always On. 


I hope this helps yourself and others going forwards, but let me know if any further assistance is required :)

    • I think those swings were tradeable with a reduced position size on the Nikkei which tends to respect weekly pivots during European and American trading hours.
    • @dmedin, I don't know the answer but there may be others on the IG Community that are more knowledgable than me or even use EWT both successfully and are hugely profitable applying it. They may be aware of certain assets where the probabilities of using EWT are in their favour due to confirmed historical evidence. There may well be evidence that certain assets adhere to EWT more than others on a historical basis. Of course that does not guarantee that the assets will do so in the future but it just increases the odds and the likelihood of it occurring again.  Just because I don't have the knowledge or evidence does not mean such assets do not exist where the application of EWT would be greatly increase your chances of successful and profitable trades. I personally do not use or apply EWT to my trading and it has not hindered me. I would be interested in knowing which assets adhere to EWT more than others and what the percentages are. For example are there any assets which adhere to EWT historically over 70%? Let us put Natural Gas to one side for the moment as I personally think due to the extreme volatility you would have to be a supreme EWT technician to be able to consistently make profitable trades on Natural Gas using EWT. If you put NG to one side then are there any other assets which say adhere to EWT historically from say 50% - 70% of the time? I do not know the answer but if anyone does know then it would be very interesting and helpful to the IG Community, especially for those who are genuinely interested in EWT and applying it to their trading.  Also for those assets which say do adhere to EWT over 50% of the time how does a trader know that it will so on the next trend, next move up or down, etc? How does one establish apart from a failed trade after the event on whether the asset is going to adhere to EWT?
    • S&P has tested that trend line and is now blasting into outer space.  🥳
