Recommended Posts

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?

    • shocking!!!!!!!!   but not surprised as I was always afraid about stuff getting on to those face masks   
    • 👀  Very interesting article by ZeroHedge on the recent big main stream narrative flip (China lab leak); Why The Davos Elites Just Played The 'Jon Stewart' Card | ZeroHedge ''Now Stewart comes out at this moment to pull his schtick on Colbert’s show to rally the libs to the whole WuFlu, “China Did It To Us” Narrative The Davos Crowd is pushing on us now?  '' ''They’ve pulled out the Jon Stewart card to convince the squishy Millennials that China is our enemy.  Google will now whitewash all references to Ft. Detrick, their October 2019 exercises and all the rest of it.  Remember, Millennials, in general, don’t know anything.  They just Google **** and think they’re informed.''   Here is the comedy show segment (8 min) the article centres on, watch it first.    
    • Sky reports on a new 'outbreak of covid' found during the mass testing of asymptomatic kids. No rise in 111 calls, or hospital admissions, or deaths. So just another outbreak of faux 'cases' then. This is why the mass testing of asymptomatics is a waste of time and nearly every other country is stopping it. The UK keep it up because it's useful to coerce people into taking the jab. They already stopped it for adults, they've been jabbed. There is only a few hours between getting infected and developing symptoms, very few would actually be tested then. Once you have symptoms you are not allowed in a testing station or at school. So most of those 'cases' are false positives, or bad lab work (even the BBC admits that is happening), or most likely people with immunity who have come into contact with the virus up to a month previously and old fragments from the destroyed virus are left in the blood. This virus has been circulation for over 18 months, there can't be many who have not already come into contact with it. But but but variants!!!!!!!! There are already many research papers out that show that immunity works on the variants. Only govt science experts and model makers pretend otherwise.   Meanwhile, continuing studies (if you've been jabbed you're in it) are showing the vaccines to be increasingly unsafe while more and more studies show Ivermectin is safe, cheap and effective against covid and can also be taken prophylactically.   Ivermectin for Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19 Infection A Systematic Review, Meta-analysis, and Trial Sequential Analysis to Inform Clinical Guidelines' Ivermectin for Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19 Infectio... : American Journal of Therapeutics (lww.com)
