Hi @Slater,  the IG daily candles start at 00:00 (12 am),  that appears to be the same on the UK Yahoo Finance charts. A difference will occur weekly when  IG shuts down at 10 pm Friday for system updates etc and restarts at 4 am Saturday (crypto only) whereas the Yahoo charts continue straight through.

Hey Casey, to me it seems Ig has two bars  for yahoo one bar but I’ll check it out. So open at 12 midnight and when is the close ? I have been getting stopped out due to not entering closer to the close. 

Thanks for the help

@Slater,  looking closer at the Yahoo chart it has a couple of weird features, it has a date range tool and an interval tool so if you click on 1D on the range tool the chart auto changes to 1 minute intervals so I would leave the range bar alone and just use the interval drop down box. Also time doesn't flow, it seems to update itself minute by minute and even then seems to be around half a minute delayed, that's why the Yahoo chart has many gaps compared to the IG chart.

The IG bars are continuous so the daily bar close is 11:59:59 and the new day bar starts 1 second later at 12:00:00 (except on Friday evening as mentioned earlier).

Thanks Casey, getting used to this takes time that’s for sure, and this forum is not easy to navigate. 

So do you get paid to help or am I going to be annoying after a while?

    • Good article (new) on strategy planning and testing from Steve Burns. https://www.newtraderu.com/2020/10/25/how-to-create-backtest-and-optimize-a-trading-strategy/ "A trading strategy is the process used to enter and exit positions in a market based on quantified signals on when to buy and sell. A trading strategy will have trading plan to express a methodology that defines a trader’s return goals, risk tolerance, and time frame. A successful strategy should have an edge expressed in how trades are entered and managed to maximize gains and minimize losses."
