New trading platform feedback opportunity

Recommended Posts

This is a shared post from Suggestions


Hi guys, we're looking for a few clients to assist in a feedback session relating to functionality on the new web trading platform. This is open to anyone who has an opinion on the desktop version of our platform, whilst the session would have a focus on two specific functions.


  • New idea for the left hand fly out and questions relating to 'Add to work space' 
  • Switching between specific contracts - e.g. cash / futures etc. 

We're very flexible on this, but would require 20 - 30 minutes of your time and would love to get this sorted next week if possible. As stated above this would ideally be for clients who switch regularly between contracts, and if you trade multiple markets that would be a bonus. It would also be a chance to talk directly to our project managers and research team who deal with our devs and designers on a daily basis, so you would really be having first hand contact with the direction of the IG platform. 


Please either comment below or message me directly and we can get the ball rolling.

Hi James


I would be happy to contribute what I can. My trading is currently focused on a subset of FTSE 350 stocks and FTSE 100 & Wall Street indices. I have been trading for around 18 years and do know what helps and hinders a full-time trader! I use third party charting software but rely very much on IG tick charts to fine-tune my entries and exits.

Hi all - so like  stated the new web trading platform most certainly has HTML5 for the charting. This will be rolled out through the UK market first, and then globally for CFD. 


I'm locking this thread because the original post is now redundant (the request for feedback). Please leave all further feedback via a new post :)

    • Wow. Just look at the volatility. The price action is erratic to say the least. This has happened before on quite a few occasions in the past.  In one hour from my initial post to this post the price action has reversed. It is all about waiting for a clear signal for which direction these indices are going to go in. 
    • So you have to admit this S&P chart is as bullish as you could get, traders have been waiting for the Fed who haven't disappointed, have refused to break lower during that wait and are just staring at that ATH just a short reach away. Barring a war there seems nothing to hold back the continued march onward and upward. Daily chart; 
    • I think we now have the potential and it is potential shorting opportunity on Dow Jones (Wall Street), S&P 500 (US 500) and Nasdaq (US Tech 100) as well as other indices. The FTSE 100 is not looking too good in advance of Brexit. The 'daily' chart is looking rather bearish. The price action is looking bearish. However the price has not breached any of the key moving average indicators as of yet for the US 500. Hence why I am using the word potential in terms of trading opportunity. Some of the ultra aggressive traders will already be short the S&P 500 and other similar indices but if they are wrong the price does not continue downwards then they will be out quickly.
