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

MSP

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.

    • Everyone, it seems accepts the result of the recent  US elections, except the President and half of the GOP.  Convinced of his own meritless delusions of fraud and other voting chicanery, he now pursues a policy of obfuscation, denial of service and general spite while mad dog Giuliani and even madder Sidney Powell pursue laughable cases in various courts in the vainglorious expectation that 6 million perfectly legal votes will somehow be annulled/ cancelled and cease to  exist. This is not to be, though the only realists in the GOP are keeping their own counsel on the subject, thereby enabling the Presidents' persistent delusions. That's the problem when you believe your own propaganda, it is easy to become confused with reality. Apart from hiding rotten fish behind the radiators of the White house and carving his name on the Resolute desk, soon to be ex president Trump is doing his best to make the transition for "sleepy" Joe as difficult as he can. This includes a tacit refusal to provide more stimulus.  He has instructed Steve Munchkin to end funding for various emergency programs to the tune of $438 billion., thereby hampering the incoming Treasury secretary before he/she even walks through the door. This has rightly upset Jerome Powell who has the interest of the US economy as his overarching priority. Unfortunately, the President is unmoved by the needs of the American public as he feels they have betrayed him.  Why reward treachery? Trump is known for his heartless ardour when crushing those he deems as unworthy, which in this case is the American people as a whole, overcome as he is with nihilistic zeal.  Playing golf while ignoring a health crisis , at the same time as full denial in the face of outright defeat, does not an effective president make. Indeed, might I venture his very legacy as president and future GOP kingmaker hang very much in the balance, indeed may have been irretrievably  lost. Like Trump, lost with nowhere to go. Though he will surely be welcomed in Turkey, Russia, not to mention North Korea.  The markets really want to break higher and gap up to new ATH's but Trumps intransigence, denial (of Covid and the election results) and general spite ( no new stimulus)are causing a state of intermarket bearish divergence, with the SP and Nasdaq refusing to break into new ATHs(all time highs).  I guess we will have to wait until he is forced out come 20th Jan.
