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.

    • Surprising US PMI drops contrast with Europe’s gains in services, pushing EUR/USD higher as markets recalibrate economic outlooks and monetary policy expectations.   Source: Getty   Forex Euro Pound sterling European Union Inflation EUR/USD Written by: Richard Snow | Analyst, DailyFX, Johannesburg   Publication date: Wednesday 24 April 2024 07:28 Flash PMI data provides unflattering US outlook, Europe improves German and EU manufacturing remains depressed but encouraging rises in flash services PMI results suggest improvement in Europe. UK manufacturing slumped well into contraction, but also benefitted from another rise on the services front. It was the US that provided the most surprising numbers, witnessing a decline in services PMI and a drop into contractionary territory for manufacturing – weighing on the dollar. EUR/USD rises after us PMI shock EUR/USD responded to lackluster flash PMI data in the US by clawing back recent losses. The euro attempts to surpass the 1.0700 level after recovering from oversold territory around the swing low of 1.0600. The pair has maintained the longer-term downtrend reflective of the diverging monetary policy stances adopted by the ECB and the Fed. A strong labour market, robust growth and resurgent inflation has forced the Fed to delay its plans to cut interest rates which has strengthened the dollar against G7 currencies. The surprising US PMI data suggests the economy may not be as strong as initially anticipated and some frailties may be creeping in. However, it will take a lot more than one flash data point to reverse the narrative. If bulls take control from here, 1.07645 becomes the next upside level of interest followed by 1.0800 where the 200 SMA resides. On the downside, 1.06437 and 1.0600 remain support levels of interest if the longer-term trend is to continue. EUR/USD daily chart     Source: TradingView EUR/GBP surrenders recent gains EUR/GBP rose uncharacteristically on Friday when risks of a broader conflict between Israel and Iran subsided. In addition, the Bank of England’s(BoE) Deputy Governor Dave Ramsden stated that he sees inflation falling sharply towards target in the coming months, sending a dovish signal to the market. Today the BoE’s chief Economist Huw Pill tried to walk back such sentiment, stressing that the bank needs to maintain restrictiveness in its policy stance. He did however, echo Ramsden’s remarks by saying the committee is seeing signs of a downward shift in the persistent component of the inflation dynamic. EUR/GBP appears to have found resistance around 0.8625 and has traded lower after the PMI data, even heading lower than the 200 SMA. A return to former channel resistance is potentially on the cards at 0.8578. Prices settled into the trading range as central bankers mulled incoming data and the prospect of a first rate cut appeared a fair distance away. Longer-term, the ECB is on track to cut rates in June, meaning sterling will extend its interest rate superiority and is likely to see the pair test familiar levels of support.

    • Interpreting the Financial Report of Tesla Financial analyst Mark Stefanski delves into the latest financial data from Tesla. Despite the first-quarter revenue of Tesla declining by 9% year-on-year, marking the largest drop since 2012, Mark Stefanski believes this reflects the pressure on the entire electric vehicle industry in cost control and market expectation adjustments. The disclosed data of Tesla shows its revenue dropped to $21.3 billion, and its gross margin also decreased from 19.3% to 17.4%, indicating increased cost pressures. Investment Strategy and Risk Management For investors, Mark Stefanski suggests that while the short-term performance of Tesla may suffer setbacks, its long-term investment value remains. The stock price of Tesla surged in after-hours trading following the release of the financial report, indicating market optimism about its accelerated plans for more affordable electric vehicles. From the financial report of Tesla, it is evident that vehicle deliveries in 2024 may significantly decrease compared to 2023, and cost reduction measures are currently being actively pursued. This news serves as a warning signal to investors, indicating potential challenges for the future growth of Tesla. Although Tesla is typically seen as a leader in the lithium industry, its stock price has already surged by 42% this year, causing market astonishment and reminding people of the severe challenges of the industry.
