Dow Index


Recommended Posts

Well this is my first real post and it turns out to be a request


I use the spreadbetting part of IG for indices, in particular Wall Street


Previously, IG would include the Dow in their "Levels to Watch" article each day, this has now been replaced with the S&P 500.


How can I encourage IG to comment on this index again?

Hi Mr Jakes,


There is a suggestions section on the main community page where you can communicate directly with IG people and the rest of the users.


Also there is an active US markets thread where the Dow is discussed regularly.  As an FYI, we had a discussion on the merits of the Dow vs the S&P500 in which people seemed to prefer the S&P because it is the biggest market and much more diverse than the DOW (30 large caps only).  See also a Thread on the Russell 2000 small cap market as a trend setter.


When you explore the community threads and actively participate in the discussions I think you will get a lot of benefit on your chosen markets.  If no one is talking about something you are interested in then start and thread and see if it generates any interest,


Good luck and welcome,

Hi Mercury


Thanks for such a prompt response


I did see the suggestions section, however I thought that was more for amendments to the trading platform than the various education and tips articles


With regard to the US Markets thread I will wander over there and have a look.


Thanks for all your help

This fall below major resistance  may trigger a further fall


You need just support resistance indicators  , to watch these levels

Hi oilfxpro


Thanks for the heads up


This drop has earned me a few pounds and I am looking for a further drop


I am learning more about alerts and the variuos tools available to us and I hope to take advantage of those when I know more


Thanks again

You can draw your own levels on pro real time


If you use mt4  , you can have these tools made   for around   $500


The ready made ones   are not good  


My own set of custom tools  cost   $5,000     (It saves 1 hours daily and energy   or  250 hours a year)


or get some free ones  on the net  for mt4




The free ones are ok  , but  you need more accurate  and reliable  tools   for drawings

    • Dear All, On the September 22 I could not sell Presto automation stock $PRST.  I have reported that to IG helpdesk, had multiple calls etc. It is not obvious where this process is going and I need my refund money ASAP. I have sent the screenshots etc.
