MT4 NY Daily Close



I have moved back to IG and was surprised NY Close on MT4 daily bars was not available. It is quite common on MT4 at other dealers/brokers/spreadbetting companies.  When will IG offer the option to use GMT+2 (NY Close)  MT4 charts?   Thanks.

I have spoken to our head of integrated trading platforms and he has confirmed that we need to have our timings match UK time for transparency, and that the time stamp on the MT4 offering needs to match our internal server which manages orders. Unfortunately we won't be offering this functionality in the short to mid term.

Thanks for quick reply James.  I am at a loss on whatever transparency IG needs over other spread betting companies offering GMT+2 as well as GMT-5, and GMT on spread betting MT4 accounts.   I wonder how they fulfil the requirement? Not that it matters I suppose; if I want then I will have to go back to them.  I really wanted to use IG again but if IG are unable to offer what is available elsewhere....   Thanks again.

    • Hello @SillyMilly I think you are referring to purchasing crypto for holding, like people who buy gold or silver as a store of value, while @MongiIG and @ArvinIG are referring to the activity of "trading" since IG is a trading platform, i.e. for those who want to buy and sell assets as a mean to make a profit. In that sense they are right in pointing out that the FCA (the Financial Conduct Authority (UK)) which is the main governing body for the financial sector (I believe) has ruled against the activity of trading cryptocurrencies for non-professionals. I think perhaps due to the very risky nature of trading in crypto, which are prone to extreme volatility. Having said all that, you can purchase crypto through an exchange. I am not sure if there are any legal restrictions in the UK, but I doubt it. I suggest you do a Google search for "Crypto Exchanges UK". Good luck
