Why do you need to see the ticker? 

I use tickers in the search and it works. That’s all they’re useful for. That and having to display info in a restricted area.

Yes it would be useful, because you can quickly cross-reference what you're looking at on other websites that use the ticker name.

@dmedin, I completely agree. I've spoken with them about adding the tickers back into the new web platform and will keep you updated.

+1000!!!  Please add on all lists and screens, can't believe it's not there. I'm new to this site, I want to use it, but feels risky not having them. It's a simple/unique way to identify you're looking at the right stock!

We've now added news codes into the new platform:

Yes ticker symbols next to the company names or at least an option to swap to tickers,  Would also like the see them added to the history reports for easier data transfer into journal platforms such as Edgewonk.  As there is no Profit / loss statements available for the share trading platform, only CFD's.

Can you add a column for code.exchange in both the Orders and the Positions windows?

So the columns in the Positions window would be:

  • Code
  • Market
  • Quantity
  • Avg Price
  • etc

First of all - great platform! Love it to bits with few small exceptions, like the tickers (or the lack of them).

It's great that one can get a ticker of a company but they are well hidden while they could be one of the easier available pieces of information IMHO. I totally agree that anyone into stock 'talks tickers', company name is secondary so it would be great if there was at least an option that allowed one to chose what they want to see. I would rather have the name hidden away in the 'info' tab than the ticker.

The same for open position, orders, watch lists, etc, could we have a ticker as one of the possible columns? It makes life soo much easier.

If there's another post/request of this kind, my apologies, this one is the first one I've found on the subject and it seems to be still active :)

It has been over 1 year since this issue was raised. Are we to conclude that IG Markets simply to care about their customers' feedback?

But we want the ticker shown in the line along with the P&L data.  Some ETFs have very odd names in the IG system comapred to their real names, so when you have a large profile of investments it becomes impossibly teadious to do as you have suggested.

Most platforms like CMC Markets and others put the ticker in the line data as a column.

Hi all,

I'm using the online IG platform and one thing which is greatly missing is... TICKERS!! How come a trading platform don't have tickers?! PRT and all trading platforms on the market have tickers. Traders speaks with tickers, not company names. So please could you add tickers ASAP (as soon as possible)... you see TICKER!! I need SPY, I need AAPL, I need NVDA, MSFT and so on. And I'm sure I speak for everyone else. 

I've searched on platform options, forums, etc and couldn't find anything about tickers. So if there is a way to have tickers could you tell me where to allow the option. And if not, could you ask your technical team to allow them quickly?

I agree I could use PRT as there are tickers on theirs but there are things that I don't like, like it doesn't show the amount of money used from balance when purchasing a stock unlike IG platform, so you go a bit blindly and i don't like that.

Thanks and sorry for the rant but needed to say it.

Cheers! 

Yes .... !!!! I am absolutely sick of drilling down for tickers when it should be front and centre.

    • I want to believe that, even if we had viruses for many years and we lived with them like nothing happened, this one is killing more people than it should. At least is what reports are saying. That is why countries are forcing lock-downs. Think about that a lock-down is going to extend the furlough policies all over the world again. I don't think a government want to pay that money out to citizens if they don't have to, and companies are going to have to close business for good if we have a second lock-down everywhere. I agree with the statement that we had many corona-viruses before i.e. common flu, but why now governments are taking these draconian measures to force people into a quarantine? If we had the same dangerous viruses always around why are they now locking people at their homes. Did they not care about people before? I think the virus is way more deadly than they tell us and that is why people are not really that scared of it. If we had all the information that is available to professionals we would be really scared and people would lock themselves without waiting any government to tell them. My wife is Chinese and I get their news first hand. They are not reporting what is really happening since the very beginning and it is really hard to trust the Chinese government  on anything related to this virus. They still have the problem there, they keep locking entire cities down for short periods the minute they see anything. It is not reported here in the news but every week they lock people down at their homes.  This virus is really nasty and if locking people down is going to stop it, let's do it. 
    • I agree with 99% of this - the current strain is virtually exact to a strain found in 2012 by a group of Chinese scientists, then when 6 of them died from exposure the virus was sealed and sent to Wuhan I challenged David Icke  to prove the excess deaths were'nt excess deaths, from the info I looked into I'm satisfied the virus is genuine and I'm probably one of the worlds biggest sceptics  From a lock down point of view I'd of thought the perfect place to test out compliance of mass herds would be the USA - hasn't happened strongly enough for me to be concerned but it shown those that could create such circumstances how compliment most people are.  
    • Corona virus has been with us since forever we just never mass tested before. There are no extra deaths this year than any other and it's the same unfortunate types who die of corona virus every year (over 80's with pre-existing conditions 90% of cases). Corona virus is always circulating in the population most people being completely unaware and asymptomatic, herd immunity is built and the virus mutates or dies out. Tests just show you have been exposed to the virus at some stage which could have been months ago and you were most likely asymptomatic. Vaccines don't work for corona virus because they mutate very quickly which is why there is no vaccine for the common cold (a corona virus). And why flu shots don't work very often because they are based on the previous years dominant strain not the current year's (the mass manufacturing would be too late). Covid 19 has already been mutating and the last studies I saw several weeks ago confirmed that as usual a particularly nasty strain becomes less deadly with each new mutation. Another 30,000 people will die next year from respiratory infections as it's the 5 year rolling average (covid 19 or not), weather it'll be covid 19 next year or another strain no one knows but they will keep the covid ball rolling anyway. So all in all it looks like lockdown til the end of time.
