Hi,

 

The Pro Real Time platform does not use auction prices , however I will pass on your feedback to the Pro Real Time team to consider having this implemented in the future as this could benefit other clients stategies. 

 

Thanks for getting in contact

Hi. I also see this as an issue. Because the real (after auction) close prices are not used, all % change values on all screens/charts are also incorrect. As an example, I am currently looking at the price for BIL. All my trading platforms show that the price is up 1.63%, but PRT shows this as 1.41% - because it uses yesterday's close price before the auction, for the calculation. Showing that the % change is 1.41% is simply incorrect. I have raised this issue a loooooooooong time ago. So, I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you.

 

While we are on PRT, here is another one for you - not sure if you've noticed...

 

All the timestamps for all the trades in the tick-by-tick list are incorrect - out by etiher one or two hours, depending on daylight savings. It always shows the London/UK time - and there is nowhere where you can set/change this. This is a huge oversight in my opinion, and also detracts from the product.

    • yes stops are a different story, though I might use prior swing levels for targets I prefer stops to be closer to the entry but appreciate their are many schools of thought. Some like very wide stops because getting direction right is easier than getting the exact entry place right so a wide stop provides leeway. I prefer to just get out early if price turns against and just keep looking, sometimes it takes a couple of bites before getting it right. Probably depends on how much time you have to keep watching the chart.
    • I tried fundamental analysis for years and its was pointless from a trading perspective (well for me anyway). long term investment sure . It takes ages and market just doesn't do what it says on the tin.  I see that many pro traders just focus on a few stocks for their whole career, maybe that's the way to go. Hard to know  Although it seems that everything is equally difficult. I never try FX as I know diddlysquat about that.     I have given up reading books, sick to death of those cherry picked charts and all the fluff like "trade at the start of trend" How the *** are you supposed to know with any degree confidence  that a trend is starting ? The $64,000 question which they all skip over.  Also the other usual  one is that "markets only trend of 20% of time". I could never understand that. Change the time frame and you can find trends  everywhere. 
    • Ha yes, yesterday's S&P candle looks a bit different from when I last looked last night. Dow bull flag on yesterday's high. FTSE and S&P daily. Dax and Dow H1 charts;
