Volume Bars instead

Question

Hi,

I am new to the IG trading platform and could do with some help please.

How do I put the volume indicator as bars?

I have a line graph at the bottom of my chart, which I assume is the volume indicator??

When I click on any other indicator, it appears on the chart. And then when I click it again, it disappears.

This is not the case with the volume indicator... nothing happens when I click that... and I'm only assuming the indicator at the bottom of my chart is volume.

It may not be. 

* File attached

 

Thanks in advance

Hi @Nowler,  no, the line graph at the bottom is an extended view of price, you can hide it by clicking on the small arrow down icon at the bottom of the chart (see pic). The volume indicator should appear by clicking the volume tab along the top.

I was thinking that it didn't look right :)

Thank you very much!

 

However, when I click the volume button, nothing happens.

But does when I click other indicators..

 

EDIT:

It works now that I reduced the TF to daily instead of monthly.

Not sure why that would make a difference, but it now works on monthly.

 

Thanks for the help!

    • 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.
