New "Go To" feature on the new web platform charts

Recommended Posts

There are a number of ways you can submit feedback to IG. There is a section in the new web trading platform, comments and suggestions on IG Community, tweets, emails, in phone conversations with our trading services reps, and a number of other methods such as feedback forms, one-on-one sessions, webinars and seminars etc. This continue client feedback has been instrumental in guiding our development with charts and the new trading platform. Some examples include;

 

  1. Improved customisation on Pivot Points in April 2018
  2. Hide or change the color of the background grid in Feb 2018
  3. Indicator alerts in Oct 2017

 

The new 'Go To' feature

 

A feature which has been requested a number of times over the last few months is the ability to hone in on a specific date on a chart. With that said, I am very happy to inform you that the charts team just released a new “Go to” feature on the new web trading platform. 

 

What does it do?

This feature will allow users to search for a specific date (and time) on a chart in a few simple clicks. The charts will then automatically centre on the searched date/time requested by the user.

 

This feature can be found on the platform by clicking on the calendar icon shown in the top level menu and then by selecting “Go to” where a date can be specified. A date and time can be searched for if you are using a time interval smaller than a day (e.g. 1 hr).

Hey all

 

Since yesterday afternoon you are now able to see where on the charts is the candle/point in time that you searched for. This information showing the date/time will stay on the screen a few seconds before fading away.

 

This I believe makes the feature much more robust, useful and easy to use.

Hi 

 

you should be able to access the new platform on the page after IG login, (not sure if it's available in all countries yet).

Hi  - I don't believe we have had any other reports of this happening, but please let me know a few more specifics (and possibly a screenshot of what you're seeing). E.g. which charts are you looking at specifically (which asset), are you on Android or iOS?

Hi  I'm experiencing a similar problem via chrome on my laptop (across all assets) - IG helpdesk replied overnight saying they've had  others have notified IG of this - IT are working on this. tbh, the charts are pretty much unworkable at the moment

Thanks  for the screenshots. As you suggested there is a known issue on desktop/laptops caused by a Chrome bug which we are aware of. I just wanted to also let you know that I've spoken to the product owner of charts and he's confirmed that they are looking to release a fix today (or possibly tomorrow) if everything goes ok. 

 

In regards to the previous posts referencing fat candles on mobile, this doesn't seem to have been reported so please drop us a screenshot or email it to the helpdesk along with the above requested specifics and we can have a look into this.

Just to confirm this fix has now been rolled out (for the 'fat candle' issue). You may have to log out and then back in again to resolve this on your individual machines. If you are still having issues please clear your cache and try again. Let me know. Cheers.

 

*NB: this only applies to your dealing platform. Public pages such as those found on the website (for example https://www.ig.com/uk/marketanalysis/ig-commodities/gold or other 'Market Data' pages) will not have a resolution on the charts for a couple more weeks due to the roll out nature of those pages.

    • Hey @dmedin. That news piece is something I long suspected. If anyone can move the market with just one tweet then why shouldn't the cronies profit from it. I'm just surprised this has taken so long to get to the "news".
    • Ok, so I took this approach to the next level. Rather than telling the algorithm enter long at 25% and enter short at 75% levels, I decided to let the algorithm decide itself at what levels its best to enter short or long. This simplifies the strategy and boosts its gains dramatically. Top level stats over 100,000 5min candles: Gain: +1,307% % of winning trades: 60% Starting with a £2000 account, after 1 year and 1 quarter that account would have grown to almost £30k (£28k). The equity curve looks also a lot more stable, too. I resolved the issue with the lot size, this is now a formula. Unfortunately we still have 3 negative months, but overall the max runup is a lot higher than the max drawdown. Overall time in market is only 20%, so there should be the opportunity to run multiple of this strategy on different assets simultaneously to further boost the return. If let's say 3 of these programs could run simultaneously and deliver similar results you could grow £2000 to £100k within about 18 months. Still not as good as the results of the few world-class top traders like Ross Cameron from Warrior Trading, etc but a start nonetheless. The variables which the program optimised are the following: Take Profit for Long Positions: 84 points Take Profit for Short Positions: 70 Points Entry LvL for Long Positions: 23 Points below the low of previous day Entry LvL for Short Positions: 7 Points below the high of previous day Interestingly, it turned out the strategy works best without a set stop-loss, but just to close out any open positions at 21.00 o'clock at night, if not already closed by the take profit rule. I'm gonna simulate this on NASDAQ next. Obviously will need to find out the 4 variables again, as these will be subject to the Index where this is traded.   What do you guys think? Worth a shot this strategy?  
    • Lool, I'm sorry for my first post here, but it's funny :)
