1 hour charts

Question

Hello everyone

I was just wondering if anyone can tell me how i can view 1 hour charts for time periods older than 12 months.  I can bring up 1 day charts from all the way back to 2010 on the platform but not 1 hour charts.

Thanks

Don’t think you can. But with that said... why would you want to fit that on one screen? 

You can scroll back tho by click - hold down - dragging.

Thanks for you reply.

I don't want to fit that on one screen, in a similar way that you can scroll back many years on the day charts i would like to be able to do that too on the 1 hour charts....

Hi @Titus, I believe the time periods on the platform each have an allocation of data amount that can't be exceeded however historical data can be downloaded for backtesting in other formats if that is what you are trying to do. There is an example in this video;

No, unfortunately not.  I tried that before posting my question.  I've even scrolled back on the day charts to say 2 years ago and then clicked on 1 hour charts and it jumps you forward to the live price screen

You can increase the amount of historic data for each chart in the Prorealtime platform but on the IG web based platform the number of units for each chart is fixed. (see pic).

    • 'Trading only 50 times a year limits your P&L' 'Trading 500 times a year lets you exploit your edge' Pretty much goes against all professional wisdom on the subject of trading.  'The more you trade, the more you lose.'
    • Just listened to the Jack Schwagger podcast.  Typical BS: Stick to the rules and be disciplined! Except when it stops working - then change the rules! Know the market!  Limit your losses!  Analyse every trade - that will help prevent you losing!  But everyone loses throughout their career!  It's all about losing less frequently!  Blah blah blah ... In other words, 'To hell with this ... I'm going to get rich by writing a book instead'
    • I wonder what Britain's cannabis policy will be with a big Conservative majority and we've kicked out all the foreigners and sold the NHS to Donald J. Trump ... Do you think Priti 'Bring back hanging' Patel cares about those kids that need medical marijuana, let alone people who want to peacefully smoke in the privacy of their own home?  No chance
