4hr chart times on UK Stocks


Recommended Posts

Hey folks...

 

Just need to clarify for my own piece of mind...

 

I've recently come to IG to trade stocks but I'm used to trading only FX up until now, mainly referring to 4hr charts.

 

With FX I check at 6am, 10am, 2pm, 6pm, 10pm.

 

Just realised that these aren't going to be the same times with stocks are they?!?!

 

UK Stock market opens 8am, so 4 hr charts will form a new candle at 8am, 12pm, 4pm, until close with a small 30min candle up until 4:30pm? 

 

Is this correct?

Hi 

 

So like you said the shares candlesticks will start when the markets open (for example 8am on the UK markets) and then quote in 4 hour candles until the last 30 minutes. 

 

FX will reset at 10pm each night. This falls in line with the underlying market and relates to the 5pm FX close in NYC. Candles therefore will trade in 4 hour tranches until the close.

    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........  
    • Yeah........ so that happened ...
