*Noob Alert*

Erm, what's the difference between DXY on TradingView and the Dollar Basket on IG? Apart from the price that is.

I can't find DXY or USDX on IG, so what do I use to check the $ price instead of going over to TradingView each time?


The price is not exactly the same because Tradingview use the broker Oanda's prices for their currency charts while IG use their own, the charts are not exactly the same because Oanda use the 5 day week while IG opens on Sunday so have 6 day candles per week. But both Oanda and IG's prices are both based on the underlying market so should be very similar.

ahhhhhhhhh ok. Thanks, Casey.

Well seeing how important USD is and even though the price action is very similar... Which do you think its the better option for accuracy?

Or, if one trades solely in IG using the dollar basket would be the sensible option? 

accuracy to the underlying isn't the whole story, all brokers are trying to offer the best prices from the liquidity providers, you can only trade this through a broker, but which broker gives better security, lower spreads, better prices etc, IG are a heavy weight in the industry, you seem to have already chose them (so have I).

    • I am yet to explore the app, but knowing the exchange for its innovativeness and user centeredness, i am optimistic it will further enhance users experience. I'm gonna check it out and also refer some colleague of mine to explore the earning opportunities it comes with.
    • I'm thrilled about my recent purchase of JTO tokens on Bitget, and I see them playing a pivotal role in shaping the future of Jito Network. The innovative features and capabilities offered by JTO tokens indicate a promising trajectory for the network. With its decentralized nature and robust technology, Jito Network has the potential to revolutionize various industries, especially in the realm of decentralized finance (DeFi). The transparency and security provided by JTO tokens are impressive, and I believe they will contribute to the network's widespread adoption, establishing it as a key player in the blockchain space. As the Jito Network continues to evolve and gain traction, my investment in JTO tokens seems poised to become an integral part of a transformative journey in the world of decentralized technologies.
    • H4 Time Frame: Made an interesting observation. Looks like gold is in "Cycle Pattern #2"... Daily Time Frame: Gold is currently challenging cyclical support - an important level, a closing below would suggest a further decline, unless price creates a bearish reversal by immediately closing back inside the cycle. If this happens, we will have a low or temporarily low in place.
