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.

    • Source link: https://bitcoinist.com/three-factors-indicate-that-the-bgb-token-could-reach-5-in-2024/ Current BGB price: $1.06 This content is not financial advice. Readers are advised to conduct their own research before investing and only invest what they can afford to lose. The crypto industry rewards patience and is not the quick-rich platform many perceive it to be. Profiting in crypto requires knowledge, strategy, time, and patience. Those seeking quick profits often end up losing their funds. Many cryptocurrencies have experienced significant price surges in recent years. This content focuses on BGB, the native token of the Bitget exchange. Launched on July 26, 2021, at $0.058, the token has seen remarkable growth, increasing over 1500% since its launch and 184% in the past year. The prediction of it reaching $5 in 2024 is based on its impressive utility and appealing tokenomics. Comprehensive details of its use cases can be found in its white paper: https://img.bitgetimg.com/video/BGB-whitepaper-EN.pdf?locale=en BGB has shown incredible growth in the past year, breaking several all-time highs (ATH) and setting new ones. In 2024 alone, BGB has broken its ATH seven times, reaching $1.48 on June 1st, 2024, solidifying its acceptance among investors and traders. Ecosystem developments aimed at rewarding users further enhance its global adoption. Products like PoolX, which rewards stakers with new crypto, have seen huge adoption. Other products like Launchpool, Launchpad, Super Airdrop, and Flexi Savings make holding BGB worthwhile. Bitget's user base expanded from 20 million to 25 million users in 2024 alone, indicating significant growth. As the exchange continues to grow, it's logical that BGB adoption will increase, potentially leading to further price surges. With more use cases emerging, a $5 target seems feasible given the token's performance over the past year. However, remember to do your own research. What do you think?
    • Scrolling through Bitget's Twitter feed today, I stumbled upon something interesting: the upcoming listing of the BLAST token. A quick search revealed a project with some intriguing features, particularly its focus on native yields for ETH and stablecoins. This Layer 2 solution built on Ethereum seems to address some major pain points in the DeFi space.     By leveraging the Shanghai update, it offers auto-rebasing for ETH and T-Bill yields for stablecoins, all while aiming to reduce transaction fees significantly. Plus, it boasts a team with a solid track record and backing from well-respected investment firms. So, what do you guys think? Is BLAST the next big thing in DeFi, or is it just another layer 2 solution in a crowded market? With the token listing soon on Bitget, I'm curious to hear your thoughts on its potential impact on the crypto space.  
    • Ethereum's popularity is undeniable, but its congested network can be frustrating for users due to slow transaction speeds and high fees. Layer-2 solutions like Blast aim to tackle this by offering faster, cheaper transactions without compromising security. Blast takes things a step further by providing native yields for both ETH and stablecoins, simplifying the staking process for users. Similar solutions like Polygon and Arbitrum also offer scalability benefits, but Blast's unique yield generation and focus on bridging real-world assets to DeFi set it apart. This creates an environment where users can earn passive income while enjoying the advantages of a faster and more affordable network. Blast's native token is set to be listing on Bitget June 26th, this could further increase its visibility and adoption within the DeFi community The competition in the layer-2 space is fierce, each platform vying to become the go-to solution for smoother DeFi experiences. What are your thoughts on Blast and its approach? Share your experiences with other layer-2 solutions and let's discuss the future of scaling Ethereum.
