daily change numbers are wrong

Recommended Posts

I mentioned it a few years ago and got the response that IG is doing it the correct way.

However, today is a fine example when the daily change in the dashboard is completely wrong, because it is based on the closing price vs opening price, rather than yesterdays closing price:

LPD went down 7.4% today and every other source agrees with that yet the IG dashboard says 0% change? How come?

Interesting, but which IG dashboard has 0%, the chart says -7.49% but is showing no candle at all for yesterday (0%)?

That's a screenshot from my dashboard yesterday after market close. It states the price as 2.5c, which is in agreement with other sources.

The same today, the IG dashboard fo my account shows LPD +3.85% (or 0.1c up) with a closing price of, wait: 2.5c ! Hmmm, that's the same as yesterday's closing price.

I see this market has gone 'closing trades only', seems to be very low in liquidity.

I'm not sure how liquidity would affect the math. IG and every other bank has a closing price, but it seems IG is using the opening price to determine the daily change. This leads to reporting different numbers compared to other banks at the end of the trading day.  It's not just this stock.

    • I like the fact that the analysts focus purely on money and profitability without getting too political.  That's what we want to see.  (After all, why are any of us here except to make money ...)
    • I just notice Nick Radge is also on number 178, I've not listened to this one but could be useful for anyone looking to build a new system. 178: The Blueprint: Create a simple trend following system w/ Nick Radge https://chatwithtraders.com/ep-178-nick-radge/
    • Gold apparently.  Anything with 'mass public participation', i.e. anything that a lot of other traders are applying EWP to.  I'd be very surprised to see anyone who has been using any kind of TA successfully for 10 years come on this board, after all 'why should they' lol when they can sell analysis for a living instead of giving it away for free.
