Signals of commodities

Question

The signals of commodities are often not usable. The entry, stop and limit prices are to small. Spot Gold and Silver are giving question marks instead of these prices inside the demo account. Who knows what is wrong here?

HI @HansBaas,  concerning the multiple of price (x100 ect) you don't need to worry about that, it is just a different notation like shorthand. US oil is in US dollars so 68.4 is $68.40 and for points on the IG charts it's 6840.0 but it's all meaning the same thing. If you are interested in the trade click 'add to workspace' for a better view of the chart and the signal information`, if you decide against taking the trade just delete the chart and move on to the next. If you wanted to take the trade and click 'copy order', it would have filled out the order ticket correctly.

Concerning the   ??  These signals are generated by computer based on chart patterns, if the pattern breaks down the ?? is saying wait, the pattern may reassert or just forget it. The Autochartist signals I think will just withdraw the signal if it's not triggered rather than put ?? 

Hope this has helped.

Hi @HansBaas,  I just had a look at gold signals, there are 2 for this morning, one at 4:10 am which has already surpassed it's entry point. The second at 6:45 am loaded no problem.

Could it be that you are trying to load too late and so getting question marks in the boxes?

Actually I've not looked at signals for a long time and had not noticed the 'copy order' function before, it auto loads the order ticket leaving you to set size and click 'place order', that's pretty cool really.

if you can add a screenshot @HansBaas next time this happens that'll be really useful. And a note of the exact time. 

Thanks.

Thank you for your replies:

It is now 17:52 MET.  It concers the PIA-first signals. In the live-account I see these commodities-signals:

Oil: the signal must be multiplied by 100

Silver: the signal must be multiplied by 100

Gold: the signal is good

Copper: the signal must be multiplied by 10000

In the demo-account:

Oil: the signal must be multiplied by 100

Silver: the signal is ??

Gold: the signal is ??

Copper: the signal must be multiplied by 10000

Greetings Hans

(I have attached two screenshots, Oil from live-account; Silver from demo-account)

    • A (relatively) settled session - APAC brief 12 Dec
      A (relatively) settled session: It’s been a soft day for global equities. With almost exactly two-hours to go in the US session at time of writing, another modest rally has apparently been faded by traders. Indications are that Wall Street will close lower. If proven true, this will punctuate a mixed day for Europe, and quite a solid day for the Asian region. The former found little impetus to be bid higher, while the Asian session showed the ebullience of diminishing trade tensions. Scanning the major indices, volumes were up compared to their 100-day average, however were slightly down when compared to their 10-day and 20-day average. It reveals a market that is more settled than what it has otherwise been seen during the global share-market correction – but remains vigilant and prepared to turn at the sight of bad-news.

      Global growth: Given price action in last night’s trade was relatively more subdued, traders and analysts seemed able to take the clearer air to reflect on current market drivers. The theme that’s popped up consistently in the last 24 hours can be crudely articulated as “downside risks to growth”. It was a theme adopted by ECB President Mario Draghi during his press conference following last night’s ECB Meeting; and it was also referenced by PBOC last night in relation to China’s economic fortunes. It bears repeating: October, November and December in markets have been characterizes by bearishness, of course. However, the causes throughout this period have shifted. What was initially a sell-off catalysed by fears regarding higher US interest rates has transformed into one driven by fears about slower global economic growth.

    • What’s making headlines - APAC brief 13 Dec
      What’s making headlines: There’s an hour and a half to go in the US session and global equities are up. Let’s assume they finish that way – there is plenty of room for clarification (and rationalization) late-on, if need be. Traders have taken the new green shoots in the trade-war and spun them into a positive narrative. Sure, the old green shots lay trampled below the new ones, but perhaps this time around the positivity will be given a chance to thrive. The other story hogging headlines in the financial press is the vote motion UK Prime Minister May’s leadership of the Tories. Market confidence has been shaken by that development, but as we wake-up this morning, the balance of opinion seems to be suggesting that May will win the day.

      The data side-show: Politics is driving markets still, which is always dangerous – it’s often a distortionary influence on prices rather than a revealer of fundamental facts. However, the fundamental economic data that was handed to traders overnight supported their optimism. Arguably the most significant release for the week, US CPI figures delivered a bang-on forecast number. If you’re a bull, locked in an environment where there exists fear of a global economic slowdown on one side, and fears about higher global interest rates on the other, a moderate outcome to any data-release is welcomed. Fundamental data last night was light otherwise, with US crude oil inventories the next most important release. It overshot forecasts, but still showed shrinking supplies, which boosted oil prices and (at the very least) didn’t detract from the bullish sentiment.
