Guest rachelbarnes

Question

Guest rachelbarnes

Hi, I was wondering why all the analysts that I watch on DailyFX(provided by IG) use a different time zone on their charts on the platform TradingView. I also use trading view sometimes but would like to be able have a daily close at the NY close on the Deal platform, ive tried looking for an answer but cant find. Thanks.

Hi @rachelbarnes, a platform's time zone is dependent on your broker's data feed. I think IG only has UK time and Australian eastern for the Australasian region.

Very few platforms incorporate the facility to change time zones, Trading View is one but I don't think IG has a hook up with them to deal through. The ProRealTime platform, which IG does provide (with conditions), also has the function to change time zones .

The most inept part of the IG plattform is the neglectful part of showing the time zone that is in play for the Signals info and the time shown on the graphs. It is beyond logic as to why such vital information is not shown. Its like showing a measurement without defining whether it is metres yards centimeters millimiters or some other unit. 

How can such a vital bit of info not shown in a plattform expected to operate in the 21st century. This is just unacceptable and one cant trade with this plttform as a result of this missing info.

Having the option to have all the info in the same time zone is what is absolutelly necessary here not to mention that the date along with the time needs to be shown.

Having played with it for a year now I cant bring myeslf to trade with this plattform because of this time and date issue. The irony is that it is such an easy thing to apply to this otherwise briliant platform, so come on IG get to the 21st century now.

    • Does anybody know the BIL (SPDR Bloomberg 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF) equivalent with a GBP currency hedge? I want the interest yield but I don't want the currency risk.
    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
    • Investing in stocks can be a great way to grow your wealth over time. However, there are different approaches that investors can take when choosing which stocks to buy. Two of the most popular approaches are growth investing and value investing. Growth Investing Growth investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are expected to grow at a faster rate than the overall market. These companies are often in industries that are growing quickly, such as technology or healthcare. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies will be able to generate higher profits in the future, which will lead to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of growth investing is that it can potentially provide higher returns than the overall market. However, it is also riskier than other investment strategies, as these companies often have higher valuations and more volatile stock prices. Value Investing Value investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are undervalued by the market. These companies may be in industries that are out of favour or have recently experienced challenges, but they have strong fundamentals and a history of profitability. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies are undervalued and that their true value will be recognized in the future, leading to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of value investing is that it can potentially provide lower risk than growth investing. However, it may also provide lower returns in the long run, as these companies may not have the same growth potential as companies in the growth investing category. Comparing Growth and Value Investing Growth and value investing are two different approaches to stock investing, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Growth investing can potentially provide higher returns but is riskier, while value investing can provide lower risk but potentially lower returns. An investor may choose one approach or a combination of both. A portfolio that contains a mix of growth and value stocks can provide a balance of potential returns and risk. Conclusion Both growth investing and value investing can be effective ways to invest in stocks. The key is to understand the potential risks and rewards of each approach and to choose the one that aligns with your investment goals and risk tolerance. Analyst Peter Mathers TradingLounge™
