Alert trigger trading -

Recommended Posts

Hi IG,

there is a big problem with the alerts on both the IG platform and Pro real time. There is no- "open close high low" in the alert criteria. It would be a very simple procedure to add these 4 candle aspect to alerts. If someone wants  an alert on, say a candle"close" above a resistance level in a consolidation zone it is not possible with the current IG alert set up. 

Is there any chance IG could add these 4 extremely important criteria to the alert function?

Does any traders out there know of any other platform that offers -open high low close in three alert function?

cheers

In Prorealtime you can choose trigger between 

realtime 

or current bar ckose (time-bars or tick-bars)

    • yes they will be on less charts but I understand your point about the size of the moves in ftse, no harm in trialing them though you might find marking out the immediate prior high and low has more relevance.  
    • Yeah, I keep an eye on volume, that's why it's showing at the bottom of my chart However, I haven't been able to discover a strong relation between volume spikes and trend direction. Sometimes I see orders of the magnitude of 10-20k and the chart doesn't do anything special. Other times you see just average volume and the chart does huge turnarounds. For example what happened at 8.30 with that spike down and then going straight back up and making new highs vs previous candle? All happened on low volume
    • @jameswalker1 my recommendation is trade the demo account to get a better understanding of the costs associated. I traded demo for nearly 2 years before placing my first real trade. It will save you in the long run to get a better understanding of the costs involved.
