Orders showing on IG charts

Question

Hi all,

I use IG charts in preference to the PRT. In the last few hours they've developed a new feature - which is one of the things I dislike about PRT which is why I don't use them. My orders are being displayed on the chart with great big red squares and blue circles right on top of the current candle making it hard to see what's going on. I often have a couple of pending orders and they're creating a complete mess. Also hard to read the chart with my own lines of support and resistance, and the daily pivots,  when the orders are showing as massive horizontal lines across everything. I tried to get rid of the lines and only succeeded in changing my pending orders, which was a bit alarming. Have been through the preferences and checked that I don't have "deal through charts" enabled, but can't see any way of getting back to how things were before. 

I hope this isn't a new permanent "feature". Horrors!

Thanks,

Cate

I've found it! Sorry for the question! (If anyone else is worried by this, the answer is on the charts. Click on "deals" and there's now the option to "show open positions" and "show working orders".)

Thanks guys. Happy trading!

    • S&P 500 Record Breaking Reversal – True Reversal or Sheer Volatility? Jan 25, 2022 |  John Kicklighter, Chief Strategist. Full article on DailyFX Chart of S&P 500 200-Day SMA, Volume and ‘Tails’ (Daily) Chart Created on Tradingview Platform       Chart of S&P 500 with Net Speculative Positioning of IG Retail CFD Traders (Daily) Chart Created on DailyFX
    • Usually, when the markets are heading into major event risk, conditions settle in respect of the deep potential that lies ahead. That doesn’t seem to be the case for markets to start this week ahead of the FOMC decision. What should we watch and expect?  
    • GOLD, XAU/USD, FOMC, TREASURY AUCTION, YIELDS, TECHNICAL OUTLOOK – TALKING POINTS Gold prices gain overnight on haven flows as Wall Street volatility persists Strong 2-year Treasury auction helped push yields lower, 5-year auction eyed XAU/USD establishes support at former area of major resistance as prices rise Gold prices held firm overnight despite a US Dollar that was charged on safe-haven flows amid a volatile New York trading session. US stocks managed to close in the green after a late-day rally, marking an impressive intraday turnaround. The broad risk aversion and volatility was the likely driver for bullion prices. A healthy amount of buying in the Treasury market also helped gold by pushing yields lower across the short-end of the curve, while longer-dated yields trimmed losses as stocks rebounded. Bullion is sensitive to Treasury yields, as the metal is a non-interest-bearing asset. Treasury rates have risen sharply since early December, boosted by increasingly hawkish Federal Reserve rate hike bets. However, those rate hike bets may have become too aggressive. An overnight auction of $54 billion in 2-year Treasury notes was met with strong demand on Monday in the United States. The auction saw the highest demand seen since early 2020. That suggests the hawkish bets calling for nearly four Fed rate hikes in 2022 may be overdone. This is a good sign for gold as higher demand for bonds raises the price. Bond yields fall when prices rise. Bullion traders have a busy week ahead, with the Federal Reserve’s policy decision set to cross the wires on Wednesday. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell may push back on some of the aggressive market pricing on rates during the post-FOMC press conference. Markets are currently pricing in nearly 100 basis points of hiking, which is likely more than the Fed is comfortable with currently despite the recent hawkish shift among even more dovish board members. Later this week, the Fed’s preferred inflation metric, the personal consumption expenditures price index (PCE), is slated to drop. Analysts expect a reading of 4.8% year-on-year in the core segment of the price index for December. That would represent a small increase from November. It would also be prudent to keep an eye on the 5-year note Treasury auction tonight to help gauge overall bond demand. Another strong auction could help drive down rates on the shorter end of the curve. That would likely bode well for gold prices. GOLD TECHNICAL FORECAST Gold prices rose from a newly establish level of support, which served as resistance numerous times going back to July 2021. The next target for bulls is likely the November high at 1877.15. The RSI oscillator is in neutral territory, while MACD strengthens. Prices may require a bit more consolidation before the next big push higher. Alternatively, a move lower would aim for a quick show of support from the former resistance level.
