IG Chart support - different time frames different HLOC

Question

There seems to be a discrepancy in price information on different timeframes with some charts. Most notably between the daily & 5 minute charts for a number of stocks. I've noticed it happens a lot with stocks that trade on very low volume for the most part. As an example I've posted screen shots for AXP. On the daily chart the high for Wed 18th July is displayed as 10369.50, however on the 5 minute chart for the same day the price never reaches that level (in fact it barely even breaches 103).Daily.thumb.jpg.98f09c2ade109ab7f2a912362c9739d4.jpg5min.thumb.jpg.459b79dd78a4806382ac9543051dd009.jpg

Hi @Jack Gardiner

My HLOC data is different for AMEX on 18th July, does yours still look as in your screenshots?

It could be that it was showing incorrect data at the time as in your screenshot and has since corrected.

Cheers,

Will

Hi,

It does not appear to have changed for me.

It should be noted that I am using the demo account at the moment as I am still fairly new to the platform. I have still to verify my account with my proof of ID etc. So I can't see if this is isolated to the demo.

There are a number of other stocks with similar issues albeit very low volume that I could show. I was alarmed when something so widely traded as AMEX seemed to be displaying incorrectly.

Thank you for your time.

Jack

Hi @Jack Gardiner, the live platform doesn't have the discrepancy and you are right to suspect the demo platform. It should be noted that though demo platforms do mirror the live the demo platform is really designed for tech research rather than be just a straight copy so discrepancies do sometimes occur.

Thank you for clarifying this issue, I had begun to suspect as much. This doesn't affect 99% of the assets I am trading so it's not a big deal for me. I enjoy most of the features on IG and when I feel ready trade in real money will look forwards to opening an active trading account. You have put my concerns to rest.

Thanks again,
Jack

    • Integrate v.11 of PRT with IG. Why are IG still using PRT v.10.3, when v11. which contains many significant improvements, was released over a year ago?
    • 1 last post - couldn't help myself!!! Simple 1 x 1 Gann Angles projected from the high/low price points - I'll admit that this is ultra advanced trading stuff here, the message here is two-fold The markets regardless of what you think or have been told are NOT random, they HAVE no choice but to work out a pre-set course according to their growth or decay Gann Angles are far far better at identifying support/resistance levels - BECAUSE the market or specifically price action is NOT 2D, we can clearly see price conforms to a grid system movement - that ain't 2Dimensional! You could blindly trade those gann angles if you have the right level of expertise and knowledge of them - look at the blue circles - price rallied then fell back to them and bounced pretty accurately, they won't all work and the highest swing high is under threat at which you can't project further levels from Again here's the secret of success - you could of skewed the R value into your favour by having a 20/25pt stop underneath, trailed a stop and made fantastic R value returns Gann said over 100 years ago "Markets are financial points of force and that EVERY low/high is connected to another low/high point of force in the FUTURE, as well as in the past" As you can clearly SEE - he was absolutely right - very few people look at the markets right, when you do you see things completely differently to most other traders/investors There's some real science behind markets moves - I might do a post in future months as understanding what is actually going on helps you see through the fog and makes things a bit clearer  I'll admit I've studied Gann for years and it is not easy, it is very hard to grasp - he hides hidden messages in his course that can throw you off for months and when you to apply his methods some just do not work
