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!

    • For me your stop is large, I use close to the minimum for the market. But I think same applies. I think basically I like tight stops because you can't lose too much but when you win hopefully you win big relative to that. I've been using a 4:1 reward/risk ratio for example.  When I started out I thought the likelihood of pulling this off given how close the stop was to entry was unlikely but actually it does happen fairly often. The issue I have is that I average a win every 4 trades so essentially make nothing in the end but that's just my mean, I have a massive standard deviation that I need to get way down i.e. increase win rate if possible before this is useful. So for me I think I need better timing signals to enter and I enter too readily without really using indicators to help me. To be honest though what I've found which might be obvious to most is that if the market trends for a period of time it's much easier to make money. When it isn't it's very difficult, the problem is you often don't know when it's not trending to a large enough degree until you're in it and then you need to know to take some time and return later. Like sailing with a strong wind and then all of a sudden it's doldrums.
