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?

    • Some excuse is needed for a pullback ...
    • The spike down in indices in the last hour was the same ol' trade war news, China stating they are less optimistic than the US and feel they have been mislead by recent talks where they felt they had agreement over a rollback of tariffs that the US now say is not the case. After 18 months of this you should be use to it by now. 
    • Dax, Nikkei and FTSE100 remain below recent (past 2 weeks) turning points and we have seen an interesting recent bearish candle in play on US large caps, a potential spike and retrace back down, which could signal rally exhaustion.  In the case of the Dow and Nasdaq this occurred with an overshoot of the 4H chart rally channel and in the case of the Nasdaq also the Daily and Monthly long term resistance trend lines (overshoot and quick retrace being a particular signal of an exhaustion phase).  In the case of the SP500 this has occurred with a hit right on the Daily resistance trend line and rejection, so far at least.  As I have mentioned before: with volume relatively weak and seemingly in a down trend; and with COT net long positions weak and weakening (not what one would expect of a breakout rally); and with Gold/Silver rallying; and with NMD at the turn points on all markets and as USDJPY has also taken a similar bearish hit; the odds of a bearish phase are good and the risk reward is decent. I am already Short Dax and FTSE100 off the previous turns but money where my mouth is this time on SP500, as the exposure is tiny, I am Short off the hit and turn on the daily trend line with tight stops just above.
