Thanks for posting these @Caseynotes

I use my own dashboard which I have built in Excel with streaming prices from IG (using my Add-in).

It gives me a quick visual overview of various markets (Excel data-bars are brilliant!), I can see that stocks are down, fx flat, oil down etc and how markets have moved comparatively.

I can also see where markets are now compared to their high-low (range) today which I find quite useful.

@andysinclair, brilliant, looks good and easy to see at a glance what's going on.

Always useful to have a gauge as to what the overall market situation is as to whether the feeling is for risk on or risk off but it's also useful to see which markets are moving and which are flat. If a market is active I'd expect it to continue to be active regardless of direction til proved otherwise and same for flat markets.

So combine the two (active/flat & risk on/off) and you can narrow down particular markets of interest and likely direction.

Overnight Indices up, Bonds, Oil and Gold down. See Ger indy production (m/m) just came in at minus 1.7% instead of the plus 0.1% expected but Dax doesn't seem to care, it knows it's future is tied up with the US data.

US NFP day today at 1:30pm and 180k expected, don't forget the ADP nfp on Wednesday came in at a big miss of only 67k v 137 expected.

    • I havent traded EURGBP for a while so it may well be normal activity - maybe some sort of algo running between 22.00-22.30. For no apparent reason the spread moves to 12 pips wide (from 0.9) and swings erratically. Take a look at the IG 1 minute chart here with a corresponding chart from TradingView (FXCM feed but they were all the same) at the same time.  The chart I share is 1m and mid price so with that in mind this action would have swept all stops above and below the high 8698 and 8686 by a further 6 pips so call it a 25 pip range of 8680 and 8705 it what was for all intents and purposes a quiet market (EURUSD had a 6 pip range at this time and GBPUSD had a 8 pip range) Luckily I saw it and pulled my stop and left in my Limit - need less to say my stop would have probably been hit at 80, and of course my Limit at 8700 whilst swept, was not triggered as the spread was 12 pips not the usual 0.9 pips. Very odd action - I can only assume algo driven - but definitely not in the interest of the trader...
