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.

      Risk? No, thanks: Markets have given a resounding “nope” to all varieties of risk overnight. Equities have been slogged on Wall Street, following to a sluggish day in European markets, that saw the FTSE drop 0.2 per cent and the DAX shed 0.85 per cent. Here it looks like this is the convergence punters have been calling: US shares are playing a rapid catch-up with their global counterparts. The losses are piling up. The NASDAQ has been hit the worst in the North American session led by falls in FANG stocks. At time of writing, with about half an hour left in the session, the losses for that index are hovering around 3.00 per cent. That’s not to say the picture is any prettier for the other major US indices: The S&P500 is down just-shy of 2 per cent, and the Dow Jones is much the same.

      The havens: Typically, US Treasuries have maintained their bid. The yield on US 10 Year Treasuries has dipped to 3.05 per cent, while the yield on US 2 Year note has fallen further, down 3 points to 2.77 per cent. The markets are scrambling for safety once more as volatility spikes again: the VIX is up to about 21, and that is ample reason for investors to bail-out of equities. The US Dollar is suffering from the drop-in yields, and the Japanese Yen is accepting the safe-haven bid, along with the EUR, which is eyeing off 115 again, supported by (slightly) diminished anxiety around the Italian fiscal crisis. Of course, the Australian Dollar and New Zealand have pulled back, trading at 0.7290 and 0.6840, respectively, although it must be mentioned that commodity prices are holding well enough.
