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 :)

    • Hey @dmedin. That news piece is something I long suspected. If anyone can move the market with just one tweet then why shouldn't the cronies profit from it. I'm just surprised this has taken so long to get to the "news".
    • Ok, so I took this approach to the next level. Rather than telling the algorithm enter long at 25% and enter short at 75% levels, I decided to let the algorithm decide itself at what levels its best to enter short or long. This simplifies the strategy and boosts its gains dramatically. Top level stats over 100,000 5min candles: Gain: +1,307% % of winning trades: 60% Starting with a £2000 account, after 1 year and 1 quarter that account would have grown to almost £30k (£28k). The equity curve looks also a lot more stable, too. I resolved the issue with the lot size, this is now a formula. Unfortunately we still have 3 negative months, but overall the max runup is a lot higher than the max drawdown. Overall time in market is only 20%, so there should be the opportunity to run multiple of this strategy on different assets simultaneously to further boost the return. If let's say 3 of these programs could run simultaneously and deliver similar results you could grow £2000 to £100k within about 18 months. Still not as good as the results of the few world-class top traders like Ross Cameron from Warrior Trading, etc but a start nonetheless. The variables which the program optimised are the following: Take Profit for Long Positions: 84 points Take Profit for Short Positions: 70 Points Entry LvL for Long Positions: 23 Points below the low of previous day Entry LvL for Short Positions: 7 Points below the high of previous day Interestingly, it turned out the strategy works best without a set stop-loss, but just to close out any open positions at 21.00 o'clock at night, if not already closed by the take profit rule. I'm gonna simulate this on NASDAQ next. Obviously will need to find out the 4 variables again, as these will be subject to the Index where this is traded.   What do you guys think? Worth a shot this strategy?  
    • Lool, I'm sorry for my first post here, but it's funny :)
