Christmas Day - can this be removed from the charts?

Question

My charts are showing Christmas Day which has no data and is making charting useless as the data is shifted by one day and trendlines won't make sense. Is there a way of removing Christmas Day from the charts (4hr and lower timeframes)? Or does IG have to do this for all charts? Surprised this was not taken care of...

Tough one - gotta **** out those days when markets were closed and therefore change the X axis.

they do at weekends tho so I assume it is actually possible!

After speaking to our tech team unfortunately we can't remove those days during which the markets were closed.

Thanks James. But that means that charting and even technical indicators are useless with IG charts when there is a day when the markets are closed. Everyone else excludes such time periods when there is no data. Why include them? Doesn't make sense at all.

just turned on the EMA to a chart and the lines flat lined between the close and open. Doesn't this mean that it had no effect? If the closed period was effecting indicators then it wouldn't be perfectly horizontal.

Am I right in my thinking?

For intraday charts eg 4hr, if you draw trendlines you'll see that it doesn't work. Yesterday's data for example lies outside the down trendline when it shouldn't. Leads to wrong conclusions.

    • Integrate v.11 of PRT with IG. Why are IG still using PRT v.10.3, when v11. which contains many significant improvements, was released over a year ago?
    • 1 last post - couldn't help myself!!! Simple 1 x 1 Gann Angles projected from the high/low price points - I'll admit that this is ultra advanced trading stuff here, the message here is two-fold The markets regardless of what you think or have been told are NOT random, they HAVE no choice but to work out a pre-set course according to their growth or decay Gann Angles are far far better at identifying support/resistance levels - BECAUSE the market or specifically price action is NOT 2D, we can clearly see price conforms to a grid system movement - that ain't 2Dimensional! You could blindly trade those gann angles if you have the right level of expertise and knowledge of them - look at the blue circles - price rallied then fell back to them and bounced pretty accurately, they won't all work and the highest swing high is under threat at which you can't project further levels from Again here's the secret of success - you could of skewed the R value into your favour by having a 20/25pt stop underneath, trailed a stop and made fantastic R value returns Gann said over 100 years ago "Markets are financial points of force and that EVERY low/high is connected to another low/high point of force in the FUTURE, as well as in the past" As you can clearly SEE - he was absolutely right - very few people look at the markets right, when you do you see things completely differently to most other traders/investors There's some real science behind markets moves - I might do a post in future months as understanding what is actually going on helps you see through the fog and makes things a bit clearer  I'll admit I've studied Gann for years and it is not easy, it is very hard to grasp - he hides hidden messages in his course that can throw you off for months and when you to apply his methods some just do not work
