trading volumes ?


lithium

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.

I have a similar question. I was comparing volume displayed in IG and yahoo finance and Trading view. Yahoo finance and Trading view display the same volumn 26.03 million. However, IG displays 2245259. There is a big gap between the two.

Here is the stock:

    • In a world where gaming is one of the most used forms of relaxation, a good number of projects have evolved to give gamers an immersive experience alongside passive earning opportunities to earn from. Through time, there has been a plethora of crypto gaming projects. With AxieInfinity being its progenitor, we have witnessed expansive growth with how certain projects have extended its tentacles. Currently, one of the projects that has caught my eye is $NADA. The project is one of the pioneer gaming models on the Hedera Blockchain Network. Primarily, it seeks to be used in blockchain based NFT mobile games where the latter and metaverses are interconnected seamlessly. Most of the games it is associated with have considerable pedigree in the global market. In a bid to let users earn seamlessly, NADA looks to allow players earn tokens through game play thus projecting gamefi. In the exactitude of real world use-cases, the token can be used for purchasing in game items, et al. Deducing from all of its features, it is incredibly worthy to note that the token has good use cases and tokenomics. In recognition of this, reliable platforms like Bitget have expressed intent to list it along a significant number of activities to earn from, depositing the token is even opened on there already. Conclusively, I'll love to hear your thoughts on this new model? 
    • Blockchain and gaming complement each other nicely. Their fusion has enabled real rewards for gamers, something that traditional games don’t offer. What’s more, BlockchainxGaming effectively manages the ownership and transaction history of game characters, items, etc, enforces property rights, promotes transparency, stability, reliability and improves fun. As blockchain and NFT-based games continue to drive the game market's growth, the hunger to play more and earn more deepens. Nada Protocol is proposing a blockchain technology and ecosystem with customized structure that will fuse with the global mobile game market and NFT blockchain game market, satisfying game players’ cravings with a more immersive mobile game experience where they can own and trade the items they earn from the game. NADA focus seems to be centered around creating a fun blockchain gaming ecosystem that adds the value of economic activity to the pleasure of gameplay. One of the most significant of its core features is a buzzing marketplace where users can conveniently find the items they want and trade them with other users. Much of the activities in Nada marketplace is controlled by NADA token, a reward-type token built on the Hedera network, and currently building up liquidity to list on Bitget. What’s your thought on this fast-growing game and its chances to carve a niche for itself in the competitive gaming world?
    • Thanks very much, @KoketsoIG. I hadn't discovered the drop down menus - it all makes much more sense now! It's odd about the E1 contracts - it must be a new change, because I'm in the UK and I currently hold some of the E1 positions that I opened a few weeks ago. Anyway, at least now I understand what's going on. I'll try not to bother you with too many questions as I get used to the new platform! Best wishes, Cate
