Share Dealing Charts "Last Traded Volume"



Hello. I'm using the desktop based share dealing account. When I display a chart for any given stock, with the time interval set to Daily, and add Volume from the Technical tab, I get the typical volume bar chart at the bottom. When I use the pointer to hover over one of the bars I get the volume information displayed as "Last Traded Volume" with the volume figure.

But the volume figures provided seem very low compared to daily volume information for the same stock from other sources e.g. Investing.com. 

So is the "Last Traded Volume" exactly what it says i.e the volume of the last trade on that particular day? If so how do I get the total volume for the day and not just the last trade?

Many thanks for your help.

Hello @Caseynotes. Thanks for this reply. I'll refer to the post you quoted and continue there as I have some similar volume discrepancies.

@The_Alnchemist,  on another thread somewhere I also saw an IG reply that was saying that due to the mixed sources of data they used to collate volume that the final data point may be delayed and I've noticed this before, you may find the final volume profile has changed on Monday. Just checked the spread bet chart for Kier Group, see below.

Thanks for your help @Caseynotes. The volume for the 14-Jun on the IG platform did indeed go up this morning but there's still a mismatch in the volume profile for the two highest bars either end of the last 2 weeks. The volume figures provided on the IG platform and Investing.com (left & middle window) are quite different with those provided by IG much lower. Although not exactly the same the volume figures provided by Investing.com and londonstockexchange.com (Middle and right windows) are quite similar.

I'm not sure what the volume figures provided by IG are or where they come from.
