IG MT4 and trading 5 day week charts.

Recommended Posts


So I'm on a course and the tutor wants to know if my MT4 platform (IG) is able to do 5 day week on the charts. Does the IG MT4 platform do this?

Sorry to ask this, I have no clue on where to find it as I'm very new.

Many thanks.

Hi @Hiren,  as with any MT4 you are stuck with the timeline set by the broker, the alternatives are to switch to the Prorealtime platform which does allow switching to US time zone and so cuts out the UK 2 hour Sunday candle as does the web based TradingView platform which you could use for charting while using the IG MT4 for dealing.

Sounds like you might be on the Nial Fuller course, not too many others see it as much of a problem, you might lose some patterns compared to the 5 day chart but also gain others.

    • Natural Gas remains 'the monster of the monsters', it requires no leverage and a lot of patience: lately formed a triple bottom, likely to test a previous support at 6400 and higher, it is a challenge for for those preferring CFD trading, especially for professionals trading high leverage! Otherwise can double, triple or more the equity and wipe out the account as well in a short period of time. It has no limits or previous time to count on, on any chart available! During the good days CAN tumble or spike up 7 -8% in a matter of seconds! IG remains the best for challenging the Natural Gas financial instrument!
    • It’s been a rocky start to the year for Bitcoin, but experts still say it will hit $100,000 — and that it’s more a matter of when, not if. Bitcoin on Thursday dipped below $20,000, falling down nearly 5% over the last 24 hours. This is the second time the largest crypto has fallen below $20,000 this month and it still remains under pressure, according to Edward Moya, a senior market analyst at OANDA. “Bitcoin is struggling to hold onto the $20,000 level,” he says. “If Bitcoin breaks below the recent low around $17,500, there isn’t much support until the $14,500 level.” The latest crypto market crash was spurred by momentary de-risking from Wall Street as many investors are feeling pessimistic about the economy amid surging inflation, a shaky stock market, and rising interest rates. The crypto market has increasingly tracked the stock market in recent months, which makes it even more intertwined with global economic factors.
