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  - 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.

    • Comcast / Disney bidding war ends - EMEA brief 20th July
      The Comcast / Disney bidding war for 21st Century Fox ended yesterday with the former pulling out of the race. Comcast have stated they are still planning on pursuing Sky. Asian equity markets pushed higher overnight over a volatile trading session as the Chinese yuan bounced off a one year low. Trump showed displeasure towards the Fed's hikes, criticising policy and highlighting concerns on the potential impact of rising interest rates on the US economy causing the Dollar to sag.

      The losses seen in some of the Asian markets are expected to continue in Europe, with small drops for indices expected. Canadian CPI is the sole macro point of interest, while on the earnings front General Electric and Schlumberger report figures. The US dollar will also be in focus after President Trump commented that further rate increases could derail the economic boom in the US.

    • Market Screening for Dividend Opportunities
      This article will also look at IGs market screening tool and attempt to come up with some ideas the stocks that could be bought on the basis of the dividend they offer. It seems a good time to at least begin starting to look at stocks that pay a good dividends (begin creating a Watchlist maybe?)  but crucially stocks that also seem capable of continuing to pay that dividend.

      The reason for this article is the markets have been a bit turbulent lately: there are various geopolitical events on the horizon (which could trigger panic in the market) but also because with stocks trading near all-time highs it may be more prudent to look for stocks that pay in income (dividend) rather than stocks for future the growth potential. And lastly the previous stock market crash was 10 years ago. That in itself is not a sign of doom, but history repeats, eventually. 😉
