adding / modifying Moving Averages


I am a newcomer to IG.

Where can I find information on how one sets out (and edits) moving averages on IG Charts?

Click on the 'Three bar chart' symbol which is for indicators at the top of the charts. In there you will see different moving average indicators such as:

  • Moving Average
  • Weighted Moving Average
  • Volume Weighted Moving Average
  • Exponential Moving Average

For example, if you select 'Moving Average' then you will see MA 20, 50, 100 etc. If you click on this then you can select your timeframe for the moving averages and add accordingly.

I hope this helps.

    • The bulls are coming back: APAC brief 21 Jan
      The bulls are coming back: Traders received the greenlight to jump into risk assets on Friday. It culminated in a substantial jump across global equities and a certain “risk-on” attitude to trading. The impetus was arguably more technical than fundamental. The boost in sentiment in being attributed mostly the leaked news that Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin was planning to lift US tariffs on China. Whatever the motive, nefarious or simply untrue, that story was quickly denied by the White House. However, it signalled enough to the market that progress was being made in trade war negotiations. That extra fuel to this recovery’s fire supported a push above very significant technical levels in Wall Street indices, attracting buyers and further validating the view that the December sell-off is behind us.

      The stock market’s biggest fan: There’s one market participant who is apparently willing that notion to be true: US President Donald Trump. The US President obviously uses the stock market’s performance as a measure of his success – rightly or wrongly. And over the weekend, amidst the very many Tweets that were Tweeted by Trump, this one outlined his view on the US economy and stock market: “the Economy is one of the best in our history, with unemployment at a 50 year low, and the Stock Market ready to again break a record (set by us many times)…” Quite a pledge to make – and one markets participants aren’t going to take too seriously. Regardless, it does provide a perversely comforting story for markets, to know that the US President is wishing this market higher.
