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.

    • Well Bitcoin broke $8k and is currently around the $7.5k price area. It is not looking good at all.  It seems my $6.3k - $6.6k price area which I think could be the bottom or this specific downward move looks more likely now. I mentioned this price area on Monday (a few posts above) and now I think unless there is some serious buying or spectacular news followed by some serious pumping and short covering then Bitcoin is heading towards this price zone. 
    • There are many different ways to trade and applying or adopting trend following principles is merely just one such way. Trading more frequently does not guarantee any more success but it can increase the chances of making more losses if you do not have a robust trading system that is based on a sound trading plan. Trend following does not have to involve regular or frequent trading. That is the beauty of it. You can merely wait until you identify a trend which you wish to trade. Of course they will not all be successful as the trend could reverse sharply against you, it could be a false trend (looks like a trend but not) or simply the volatility could stop you out.  Day trading really is for full time traders in my personal opinion unless you have an expensive automated system which has been tested rigorously or you are an exceptional trader which can consistently make profits on most days without gambling, hoping or relying on luck.  Trend following suits me based on the time I have available to trade. I accept it is not for everyone but I believe all trading includes an element of trend following. Just how much depends on your trading style and methodologies adopted. 
    • The 20, 50 and 100 DMA curves on the 'daily' timeframe are sloping upwards which is extremely bullish and this trend has been very nice indeed.  When I talk about 'Strongest Trending Assets' in my other threads then I am suggesting those that a lot of traders do not spot but they exist and are available not only to trade on IG's platform but one must be able to spot and identify them.
