Make it Complete: Add Heiken Ashi and Renko Indicators to the web platform

Recommended Posts

The web platform is not complete if these two indicators: Heiken Ashi and Renko candle sticks are not included. I would suggested they are included urgently.

Thanks

Hi Ose,

 

Heikin Ashi and Renko candles are available in advanced charts. Click on the spanner near the top left corner of the chart next to "Price". In the resultant box click on the drop down menu next to "Style" on the right side of the box and choose the candle style you require including HA and Renko.

Hi   The advanced charting platform is ProRealTime in the drop down list. Be aware there is a charge at the end of the month if you use it but don't make at least 2 round turn trades during the month. Even just a couple of quick scalping in and outs will do.

That's interesting.  IG will charge us £30 per month if the value of our trades are 'very low', I presume that means under £30 a month.  Does IG need to get more than £30 per month from you in spreads to make it free?

The irony is that PRT lacks some features of the web platform, in particular tick volume which is an absolute dealbreaker.  Overall PRT is much faster and fully featured, but again, placing orders isn't quite as intuitive as the web platform.  We need 'one platform to rule them all'.

That was written long ago and IG have tightened up since then, I think PRT from PRT is around £40/month though IG will be getting a discount job lot price.

Not sure what you mean by 'faster', I doubt the actual price feed latency is better on PRT though maybe chart loading might be?

Yes the chart loading seems to be much faster on PRT Java client than the HTML5 platform.

Might be related to the number of charts you have up on each platform, in spite of overall computer cpu and memory, do you have a lot more running on the IG platform?

added: and the overall number of indicators running on each platform.

I use the IG platform much more extensively for actual trading.  I find PRT to be clunky, and I don't like that it relies on Java.  Since I'm not coding algorithms or backtesting I don't need to be using it so much (although I plan to learn more about that).  It does also look nicer.

All platforms (in my experience) will start to slow up depending on how many open charts you have and how many indicators each is running. Though total computer memory and cpu does make a difference the platforms themselves seem to have their own limitations keeping up max speed for tasks such as loading new charts.

Hey all - please note that we have just released H-A candles. 

More information on our new Heikin Ashi candles in the following two links 

Community: https://community.ig.com/blogs/entry/571-heikin-ashi-candles-on-ig-charts/
IG.com: https://www.ig.com/uk/trading-strategies/what-are-heikin-ashi-candlesticks-190807

 

I liked the clear, straightfoward explanation on the IG.com article.

It did however leave me asking the question, what's the downside of HA candles vs regular ones?

    • I think that was in reference to the different strategies as in a mean reversion system with smaller targets needs more trades than a trend following system that is longer term.
    • 'Trading only 50 times a year limits your P&L' 'Trading 500 times a year lets you exploit your edge' Pretty much goes against all professional wisdom on the subject of trading.  'The more you trade, the more you lose.'
    • Just listened to the Jack Schwagger podcast.  Typical BS: Stick to the rules and be disciplined! Except when it stops working - then change the rules! Know the market!  Limit your losses!  Analyse every trade - that will help prevent you losing!  But everyone loses throughout their career!  It's all about losing less frequently!  Blah blah blah ... In other words, 'To hell with this ... I'm going to get rich by writing a book instead'
