AUDUSD 200 MA on daily charts

Question

Hi,

Can you please explain to me please why the IG 200 MA on the daily is in a totally different position than that of the trading view chart.

Am i suppose to go off the Ig chart? because i cant use the same strategy on both when i play this trade as they are totally different.

 

Please see attached for charts

Thanks

Hi @Dom271, the difference will probably be down to the tradingview chart being FXCM and doesn't have a Sunday candle whereas the IG charts do have one so the periods won't be exactly the same.

I would like set up a trade based on the rebound from the 200MA but im not sure its a smart move when i look at the 200 MA on IG. Even the friday candle on both charts are not aligned. trading view touch resistance whereas the IG has smashed through it. Your thoughts on that?

If you're looking for the MAs to match try playing around with the IG periods, the pic below has the sma set to 240. The bars don't quite match on the two charts either so check the tradingview chart time zone is set to GMT +1.

    • 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.
