Question

Hi... This is an ProRealTime (PRT) question, which I've gravitated over to.

I'm using 2 time frames on on the FTX (5 mins and Daily) and would like my entries to go across both charts.... EG drawing a long term trend line(s) on the daily, and daily pivots on my 5 min chart....and would like to show the long term trends when I use the 5 min chart.... can you advise please?

Cheers,

Mark

Hi Mark (),

 

Welcome to the IG Community. I've just moved your post to our Charts section, as it seems more relevant here.

 

It's definitely possible to show lines you have drawn on the Daily timeframe on lower time frames. In the Options menu of the PRT toolbar just select Platform options - General, and then there is an tick box for 'Lines displayed on inferior time units'. This will add any new lines you draw to all lower time frames. Regarding the Pivot Point settings, when adding these to the 5 minute chart, there should be an option for the Period. If you set this to 'Daily', it will add the Daily pivot points to your 5 minute chart.

 

I hope this helps, but do let me know if you have any difficulties with enabling these options!

 

Thanks,
Tim

    • By the way if its a system you want to demo or try, I trade US 500 and Russell Long only, with no stops, I would not trade with no stops for gold, oil etc but am happy to do it on US indices as nothing recovers as quickly as US markets, so if I am wrong i just hold it until it goes in profit again, when I am wrong I wait until market recovers, so sometimes when market has gone against me I have to wait 4 -8 weeks before it recovers but this way means no drawdowns only overnight currency charge which is minima. You need to trade wihin your accoutn to do this as you need to make sure your balance is big enough when you get it wrong. You could try it on IG demo account  to see if it worked for you.
    • Yes your balance needs to be above 0, that's your most important number don't fall into the trap of thinking if its above 0 you can put trades on, you can but your balance needs to be big enough that if they go against you, you are still above 0, if not you get messgage from IG to add funds to your account or IG will take you out of trades, so if you had a trade you wanted to keep on it would now be taken out as a loss as funds in balance are in minus. You need a big enough number left in the balance column that if your trades go against you you can still hold if you want to.
    • Now all Musk has to do is buy BTC again and re-ramp for another shed load of profit.....
