PRT Pre-market Data

Question

Hi, 

I have been using PRT and its really good for trading on the ASX but I am not seeing the pre-market data it's only showing me the previous day until the market opens. I have got live data turned on and have level 1, will I need to get level 2 to see the pre-market data? 
Want to be able to scan for gapping stocks in the pre-market.
Hope that makes sense

There's often a shortage of feedback in here as I'm sure you're now aware.  I've literally just activated PRT so concerned to see so many unanswered questions regarding it.

Did you figure it out?

IG's PRT uses IG data same as the IG web based platform and will only supply Level I data, to get level II data you would need to subscribe to the particular exchange via IG's DMA platform.

I'm just configuring my PRT platform for the US.

Even with L2 streams subscribed, you don't seem to get pre-market date, except for very limited stocks. Seems to be only a few big ones, like Microsoft, Apple, Google, etc.

It seems like if it says "(All Sessions)" in the name, they have pre-market data, if not then they don't. According to this rule, there are only 25 stocks with pre-market data available. Doesn't help a lot. Probably need to use external screeners or screen on market open

yes, the 'all sessions' are US markets IG has selected for extended hours trading, you can see the list here

Nice one thanks Casey.

Bit more than 25 stocks available then, but not by a landmile ;)

    • Hey @dmedin. That news piece is something I long suspected. If anyone can move the market with just one tweet then why shouldn't the cronies profit from it. I'm just surprised this has taken so long to get to the "news".
    • Ok, so I took this approach to the next level. Rather than telling the algorithm enter long at 25% and enter short at 75% levels, I decided to let the algorithm decide itself at what levels its best to enter short or long. This simplifies the strategy and boosts its gains dramatically. Top level stats over 100,000 5min candles: Gain: +1,307% % of winning trades: 60% Starting with a £2000 account, after 1 year and 1 quarter that account would have grown to almost £30k (£28k). The equity curve looks also a lot more stable, too. I resolved the issue with the lot size, this is now a formula. Unfortunately we still have 3 negative months, but overall the max runup is a lot higher than the max drawdown. Overall time in market is only 20%, so there should be the opportunity to run multiple of this strategy on different assets simultaneously to further boost the return. If let's say 3 of these programs could run simultaneously and deliver similar results you could grow £2000 to £100k within about 18 months. Still not as good as the results of the few world-class top traders like Ross Cameron from Warrior Trading, etc but a start nonetheless. The variables which the program optimised are the following: Take Profit for Long Positions: 84 points Take Profit for Short Positions: 70 Points Entry LvL for Long Positions: 23 Points below the low of previous day Entry LvL for Short Positions: 7 Points below the high of previous day Interestingly, it turned out the strategy works best without a set stop-loss, but just to close out any open positions at 21.00 o'clock at night, if not already closed by the take profit rule. I'm gonna simulate this on NASDAQ next. Obviously will need to find out the 4 variables again, as these will be subject to the Index where this is traded.   What do you guys think? Worth a shot this strategy?  
    • Lool, I'm sorry for my first post here, but it's funny :)
