Finding a market symbol/code in the new platform.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

The new platform seems missing the Market Information tab in the old platform. Where can I find a market symbol/code in the new platform? Example, the code name for Singapore Index is SGI.

 

Thank you very much.

At the top of the left side bar you will see the word "Search".  Click on that and type it in there.

No, it just shows the full name, for example, Singapore Index, not SGI.

What I mean is I know the full name, such as Bitcoin USD, where can I find the symbol name of it (BTCUSD)?

Thank you.

If you right click on any market in your watchlist you can see the 'Market Data' button (as below).

Hi,

Yes, I could find the market data, but it doesn't have the code name of a stock.

Hi - going to the above location will provide the stock tickers in the top tab (as highlighted below). You can see an example of this with Lloyds Banking and Tesco (LLOY and TSCO both on the LSE). Although I appreciate it isn't ideal, this is a bit of a work around. Alternatively you would have to use this web page PDF under the 'Find a Share' header, or a 3rd party service.

Hi,

The tab seems inconvenient but the website is useful. Thank you.

    • I think those swings were tradeable with a reduced position size on the Nikkei which tends to respect weekly pivots during European and American trading hours.
    • @dmedin, I don't know the answer but there may be others on the IG Community that are more knowledgable than me or even use EWT both successfully and are hugely profitable applying it. They may be aware of certain assets where the probabilities of using EWT are in their favour due to confirmed historical evidence. There may well be evidence that certain assets adhere to EWT more than others on a historical basis. Of course that does not guarantee that the assets will do so in the future but it just increases the odds and the likelihood of it occurring again.  Just because I don't have the knowledge or evidence does not mean such assets do not exist where the application of EWT would be greatly increase your chances of successful and profitable trades. I personally do not use or apply EWT to my trading and it has not hindered me. I would be interested in knowing which assets adhere to EWT more than others and what the percentages are. For example are there any assets which adhere to EWT historically over 70%? Let us put Natural Gas to one side for the moment as I personally think due to the extreme volatility you would have to be a supreme EWT technician to be able to consistently make profitable trades on Natural Gas using EWT. If you put NG to one side then are there any other assets which say adhere to EWT historically from say 50% - 70% of the time? I do not know the answer but if anyone does know then it would be very interesting and helpful to the IG Community, especially for those who are genuinely interested in EWT and applying it to their trading.  Also for those assets which say do adhere to EWT over 50% of the time how does a trader know that it will so on the next trend, next move up or down, etc? How does one establish apart from a failed trade after the event on whether the asset is going to adhere to EWT?
