How to run multiple charts on 3 screens

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I am running the following configuration.


1 x 29" ultrawide with 2x 24" wide screens directly below.


I want to have multiple of the same charts open so that i can see different time periods. On the new IG platform for spreadbetting i can only see the option to have multiple charts in 1 window opposed to splitting this across monitors like the old CFD version. 

Not only does this make the charts really hard to read but means that with several indicators running there is just way to much going on to even try start technically analyzing the data.


Can anyone advise how i can have multiple windows of the same chart open so i can see them accurately?

Hi   There are two ways, one is simply to click on the side frame of tab and drag (elongate) the whole window across the multiple screens as you can on MT4,


create 3 'My workpace' windows then from the drop down box next to my workspace label select 'open in new browser tab' then drag each workspace  to a screen.

    • 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 :)
