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.

    • Ive been with IG for many years and whilst sceptical, and wary of the many bad vibes and rumours that come IG,s way  I have up till now  fended them off. However, I have to say that a recent couple of trades stopped out by large spikes have questioned my loyalty. GBPUSD was stopped out 19/11,  22.43 at 12938 ? 8 pips above charted price ??   USDCAD was stopped out on 18/11 22.05 at 13227, the highest price by any other broker platform was 13216 ?? 10 pips above !! I have emailed IG, but not heard a thing.  I think I am beginning to share most peoples views over this broker  
    • As good as Litecoin has been in the first half of 2019 it has been just as bad in the second half of 2019. It has literally given back all the gains. Those traders who trade both 'long' and 'short' will have made money on the move upwards and then also made money by shorting on the move downwards.  It is difficult to anticipate how Litecoin will do over the coming month but I think it is likely to take the lead from its father in Bitcoin. 
    • $200 will be an important and psychological price area. If this is breached then Bitcoin Cash could easily go down to the $140 price area. This would be a big blow to the bulls and also damage confidence in the asset.  Bears will be enjoying the move downwards and should be profiting from the current trend and price action.
