trading volumes ?

Question

My search didn't bring up an explicit answer as to whether trading volumes are somehow visible in the web based dealing platform?

 

Not even clicking on "Market Data" reveals that information, although most people would consider trading volumes as fundamental market data, wouldn't they?

If you add the 'volume' indicator you should see what you're looking for. If you are looking for more detailed information, as casey said, please check out the L2 offering (however this would only be for stocks and shares). You can use the L2 info to get time and sales etc, and market depth.

Hi;

New to IG market and trying to set up chart through watchlist. I have added volume indicators & can see all other volume bars except the current period (latest bar). I am able to see price/candle move though. Is it delayed by IG or only available with higher level subscription ???

 

Thanks

Hi @MSP007  not sure which platform or time frame you are looking at but on the new platform and on the weekly chart I've noticed the the current volume bar isn't displayed while on the daily it is. Remember though that the current volume bar will start at zero and gradually progress though the course of the time period and can only be used for comparison once closed. Trying to use an unfinished volume bar for comparison will be very misleading.

Thanks Caseynotes;

Yes I am using new platform and clarifying about daily and intra day mins charts. But now i understand that i would only be able to see finished bar. 

Just a query on another topic: For market depth and traded volume/price, do I need to register for DMA (for the exchange)???

Thanks

Hi @MSP007, that is correct, market depth comes with the Level II data package as opposed to the normal Level I. Level II is only supplied to a CFD account so UK clients taking advantage of the tax exempt spread betting platform would need to change if wanting market depth input.

Depending on what assets you are looking to trade and so which exchanges you are looking to receive data from there may or may not be a charge for the market depth data, a quick call to IG should provide the relevant info.

See link for the LII platform manual in pdf form.

    • yes, with Renko you are changing from time based charts to price based and so remove a lot of noise and smooth out  the price action hopefully giving a clearer picture.
    • The twitter bears are taking a lot of flak at the mo and with good cause, especially the likes of Edgeye and Zerohedge who called a recession in 2015 and were wrong so they just repeat the call every year since in the expectation of being right eventually. Amusingly enough many traders have build this psychology into their trading plan, imagine anyone trying to continually short a bull market for 5 straight years, and yet as I've pointed out for years using the sentiment data of IG clients short/long positions that's exactly what many have been trying to do. Here's the thing, you don't need to guess, a chart will tell you if it's bearish. As Chris in the podcast above says, a market making new all time highs just can't be anymore BULLISH, there is only one way to go. So if the chart lines up with the macro and both are clearly bullish 'buy high and sell higher'. Do yourself a favour and spend the 50 minutes to listen to the podcast, you will learn something.  
    • Final hours of trading put in some bearish candles that may be a precursor to a period of bearish retrace if the 1H channel is broken on Monday.  If it does I will be expecting an A-B-C form retrace that may retest several support levels before a resumption of the long term Bull.  This is an opportunity to buy in lower, but patient is needed, it may take some time to evolve.  I have a cheeky Short in place...
