PRT charts after dividend adjustments

Question

PRT offers on their version of platform the functionality to adjust the equity/stock charts for dividends. Why can't IG's version of PRT offer the same? I am using IG CFD PRT charts with real time data on US stocks.

Thank you for bringing this up Applet

 

This is just another one of IG's offering of PRT chart inadequacies.

 

Not being able to adjust for dividends distorts support and resistance levels. As this has a cumulative affect the distortions are magnified over time. This will affect the vast majority that uses technical analysis in their trading, most use support and resistance, don't they?  So if you wondering why your stops got hit or your take profit order did n't then take a look at an adjusted chart and you may find the answer why! 

 

I rest my case m'lud.

Hi

 

Unfortunately not all of the ProRealTime features are available on the IG version, some would not be possible to add either ,because on the premium version you would receive  data that is not provided by IG as opposed to the IG ProRealTime where you are doing analysis on IG data. I am not sure where ProRealTime gets the data from or how it would be applied to the charts but unfortunately this is not something we can offer at the moment.

 

On the IG charts we offer Economic calendar that will display when there was a dividend payout on what the amounts were, maybe you could find that data useful.

 

Thanks

Anton

    • “Thus he calculates – somewhat frighteningly – that we will have 50,000 new infections a day by mid-October and 200 deaths a day a couple of weeks later.   I think Covid 19 is about twice as infectious as influenza. But the interesting thing is that he estimates the IFR (infection fatality rate) at the low end of 0.4%.
    • more on how the testing is producing mostly false positives (see recent posts above). (5 min vid) https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/1307761963359850497/pu/vid/960x540/g-mofIwfyGLa9KK4.mp4?tag=10
    • LOL - My mental maths ain't great, but i drew the same conclusion watching the press conference yesterday Trouble is 98% of the population will do as 98% of traders do - just accept the rhetoric and sound bites
