Sentiment data


Guest oziebloke

Question

Guest oziebloke

I use the client sentiment data for my trading, but I'd like to have the pairs I follow on a single page.  

Is there a way I can access that data from a feed to make my own customised page?  More specifically I'm after the trading activity data, so I can see the sentiment for the last hour. 

Thanks.

Hi, the IG sentiment data can be retrieved via IGs API or an easier option might be this page but it only shows daily (or weekly) change though it is updated regularly  throughout the day.

Do you find that when you use IG's client sentiment data that you make correct trading decisions and trade in the right direction of the trade?

Hey @oziebloke- The sentiment is the way IG clients are trading. Do you think it might be useful for the IG sentiment to be on the platform, potentially somewhere on the ticket? 

@Caseynotes- If you have any thoughts on this let me know. It would be great to have as many opinions on this as possible.

It's interesting sentiment and I do like to take notice and would like to see it on the ticket, it's a bit of a double edged sword though, do you go with it or be contrarian and go against it. If it was updated quickly enough it could also be used as something like a volume indicator which due to the way it's collated can be a bit laggy which is why tick volume is often more useful than real volume (number of trades rather than size of trades). Would be interested hearing other traders thoughts.

I will have a look what we can do. But as you mentioned it needs to be updated, which I can check how often that can be done. Further to this it is just IG sentiment, not sentiment for all traders.

Thanks @CharlotteIG,  I'm thinking I've only seen brokers offer there own retail trader positions and it has seemed to collate well between different brokers so I would assume IG's own data would be sufficient and easier to collect and display, probably more timely as well.

Exactly, and it's not anywhere as useful as the hedge fund/institutional investor sentiment indicators, which are hard to find and would be a fantastic value add alongside open interest and put/call ratios (but there's no chance of us getting them in the platform)

Too many 'dark pool' swimmers. The best available is the COT weekly update which I was thinking of adding a more comprehensive one in Monday's Daily Dashboard thread.

If its only IG's client sentiment then we would first need to know how good IGs traders are compared to the rest :D

Then we could either specifically trade against it (if IG traders are ****) or go with it (if they are the best).

It's best to get a feel for what everyone else would want on the platform so thank you for getting back to me. If you do have any other ideas that you feel would help with your trading, let me know.

The Commitments of Traders reports is the best one (IIRC - I'm going off something I've read :D )

I saw an IG or DailyFX article recently that had a diagram for 'institutional investor sentiment' vs. retail client sentiment on Bitcoin.  It would be very useful to be able to access this information from within the platform, and not have to surf away to a different website to get it.

The COT data is published once a week (Friday at 8:30), I'm looking for a user friendly format that I can include in thread on Mondays.

Hi @oziebloke

We’re always looking for ways to improve your experience on our platform. That’s why we’re considering new ways to enhance your journey before you place a trade.

As such, we’ve designed a brief poll to understand which market and pre-trade analysis you find useful – as well as any additional features or improvements you’d like to see on our platform.

Your input will help us determine the type of tools you’d like added to the market details section of our client sentiment indicator.

Your opinions directly affect the improvements we make to our platform, so head over to the poll to cast your vote now.

The poll closes on Friday 29 July 2022, so be sure to submit your vote before then.

    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
    • We have to wait until Friday to find out if the UK economy skirted a recession.   Richard Snow, foreign exchange analyst at Daily FX, tells IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor that after the third quarter contraction of 0.3%, there is a risk around the incoming data for the fourth quarter. Here he discusses GBP/USD as a trade to go short. But what if GDP comes in slightly higher? Richard says that is likely to be largely academic and that he believes the short trade will prevail.

    • Breaking News - US NFPs Surge to 517k vs 185k Expectations, Unemployment Rate Falls to 3.4% Feb 3, 2023 | DailyFX Nick Cawley, Senior Strategist Source: Bloomberg   US DOLLAR (DXY) PRICE AND CHART ANALYSIS US NFPs smash expectations in January. US dollar picks up a bid. Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 517k in January, and the unemployment rate fell to 3.4% according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Hourly earnings also beat expectations. Last month’s NFP figure was also revised higher from 223k to 260k. ‘ Job growth was widespread in January, led by gains in leisure and hospitality, professional and business services, and health care. Employment also increased in government, partially reflecting the return of workers from a strike.’     The Federal Reserve hiked interest rates by 25 basis points at this Wednesday's FOMC meeting, a move fully expected, and priced in by the market. Fed chair Powell, while continuing to stress that further rises are data dependent, added a new word to his FOMC vocabulary, disinflation, sending the US dollar lower and risk markets sharply higher. Powell said that it is a ‘good thing that disinflation so far has not come at expense of labor market’, adding that ‘this disinflationary period is in early stages’. While chair Powell will still keep tightening monetary policy to break the back of inflation, financial markets are now pricing in just one more 25bp rate hike at the March meeting before a pause in Q2 and Q3, while rate cuts are now seen in Q4. FOMC Hikes Rates 25 bps as Expected, Leaves Open Further Hike Expectations The US dollar (DXY) picked up a bid post-release rising around 60 cents to 101.90 US DOLLAR (DXY) DAILY PRICE CHART – FEBRUARY 3, 2023     What is your view on the US Dollar – bullish or bearish?
