Question

Guest Hallgente

Who at IG is responsible for Pivot Point generation on ProRealTime charts please?  I'd like to ask some questions relating to the misleading pivot points generated in ProRealTime on the All Sessions markets.

 

Thank you

Hi Anton

 

1. It seems ProRealTime added functionality to Pivot Point generation in the past but neither IG or ProRealTime announced it or made it obvious for an oldie like me.  Nuff said.  Anyhow........... the functionality added permits the times the HLC values are captured to be user defined.  Here's a screenshot in case you're not familiar..  http://my.jetscreenshot.com/16785/20171227-gnzf-56kb

 

2. Your previous comments about changing ProRealTime charts to particular timezone settings doesn't sound right for anybody trading or monitoring positions Indices, stocks, commodities and forex on a regular basis.

 

QUESTION - For the user defined time settings for Pivot Point calculation as shown in the screenshot above, please can you confirm that the values are captured off your book at the user defined times only Monday through Friday and not off your charts/database of your All Sessions markets on days other than Monday through Friday.

 

Many thanks

Hi James

 

A) Daily Pivot Points - For the DFB markets of FTSE, DAX and Wall Street (DJI):as available in the chargeable professional charting package ProRealTime:

 

A1. What days of the week do you collect values to calculate daily pivot points?

A2. What exact time of each trading day timestamp do you use when collecting the High, Low, Close values/data necessary to calculate the daily pivot points?. 

A3.. Please can you state whether the timestamp used in the calculations is local time for the applicable market or some other universal timestamp.

 

B) Daily Pivot Points - For the DFB markets of all USA All Sessions stocks as available in the chargeable  professional charting package ProRealTime:

 

B1. What days of the week do you collect values to calculate daily pivot points?

B2. What exact time of each trading day timestamp do you use when collecting the High, Low, Close values/data necessary to calculate the daily pivot points?. 

B3.. Please can you state whether the timestamp used in the calculations is local exchange time or some other universal timestamp.

 

Thank you

Hi 

 

In Prorealtime the answer to allot of your questions would depend on your timezone settings in Prorealtime. Right click on the chart and go to "custom trading hours" to see which settings you have in use.

 

A1: Pivot points would be calculated based on the candles visible on your chart, from that same trading hours section you can either include or exclude weekend data.

 

 A2: Trading hours are also set from the same section mentioned above.

 

B: You would set up your trading times from the custom trading hours section, each category has its own settings so for instance shares UK and shares US would have their own individual time zone settings. 

 

If you have any further questions then please let us know.

 

Thanks

Anton

    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
    • We have to wait until Friday to find out if the UK economy skirted a recession.   Richard Snow, foreign exchange analyst at Daily FX, tells IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor that after the third quarter contraction of 0.3%, there is a risk around the incoming data for the fourth quarter. Here he discusses GBP/USD as a trade to go short. But what if GDP comes in slightly higher? Richard says that is likely to be largely academic and that he believes the short trade will prevail.

    • Breaking News - US NFPs Surge to 517k vs 185k Expectations, Unemployment Rate Falls to 3.4% Feb 3, 2023 | DailyFX Nick Cawley, Senior Strategist Source: Bloomberg   US DOLLAR (DXY) PRICE AND CHART ANALYSIS US NFPs smash expectations in January. US dollar picks up a bid. Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 517k in January, and the unemployment rate fell to 3.4% according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Hourly earnings also beat expectations. Last month’s NFP figure was also revised higher from 223k to 260k. ‘ Job growth was widespread in January, led by gains in leisure and hospitality, professional and business services, and health care. Employment also increased in government, partially reflecting the return of workers from a strike.’     The Federal Reserve hiked interest rates by 25 basis points at this Wednesday's FOMC meeting, a move fully expected, and priced in by the market. Fed chair Powell, while continuing to stress that further rises are data dependent, added a new word to his FOMC vocabulary, disinflation, sending the US dollar lower and risk markets sharply higher. Powell said that it is a ‘good thing that disinflation so far has not come at expense of labor market’, adding that ‘this disinflationary period is in early stages’. While chair Powell will still keep tightening monetary policy to break the back of inflation, financial markets are now pricing in just one more 25bp rate hike at the March meeting before a pause in Q2 and Q3, while rate cuts are now seen in Q4. FOMC Hikes Rates 25 bps as Expected, Leaves Open Further Hike Expectations The US dollar (DXY) picked up a bid post-release rising around 60 cents to 101.90 US DOLLAR (DXY) DAILY PRICE CHART – FEBRUARY 3, 2023     What is your view on the US Dollar – bullish or bearish?
