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 had 2 long positions that were opened. I did not put any order to close them ie I was just leaving them opened without stop loss any the profit target . But suddenly they were closed this morning? Why?
    • Yes - there was a consolidation action of 1 for 1500 of these securities : https://www.sharesmagazine.co.uk/news/market/LSE20210504170819_3963598/GraniteShares-3STS-Reverse-split-Consolidation I've been on chat and on the phone to IG - they've done the consolidation, but still not updated the correct prices, which should of course also rise by ~1,500 on a ceteris paribus basis (all things the same). At the time of writing this, TSLA has dropped a further 2.4% today, so these securities ought to have risen ~ 7.2% (3x short TSLA) on the day.  The IG person I spoke with this evening promised me he would check with the relevant team and revert. My call was very late in the day (after 6pm) so I trust that they will have this resolved in the morning. If not, I do suggest calling again. 
    • Hey all,  Unlike some other brokers IG do not trade against clients and don't benefit when our clients lose. We hedge the same way as the majority of our clients (so if 60% were long and 40% were short we would hedge those 20% long that aren't covered).  We have no benefit when traders lose. We make money from spread and commission so if anything we want out traders to win so they will continue trading with us.  Unfortunately I can't be account specific and if you believe something is wrong on your account please reach out to us as I can't assist with this.  If you have any questions on this please let me know by quoting my response.  All the best,  Charlotte
