New York close charts

Question

I currently have a spread bet account with IG and the strategy that I want to use requires me to have New York close charts. Namely, charts which allow me to trade five 24 hour periods each week without Sunday bars. Is this possible  with IG?

I attach an example of what I mean.

Many thanks

Hi, you can set NY close times using IG's Prorealtime platform (see advanced platforms). 

The Sunday candle really just adds or subtracts from any weekend gap, the bigger problem is skewing indicators such as pivot points and moving averages but then, as IG is one of the largest service providers, they are still effective as so many are using them.

    • IG group is pretending as a reliable Forex broker but my experience with the broker proved the contrary.  I have opened an account with them and deposited some money. Only after started trading I came to know that they imposed all sort of restrictions on the trading account. I found that I could not open a trade without mentioning a Stop Loss and a Take profit. And the margin got increased each time when I increased the stop loss distance.  They are calling it a Limited account. I contacted their help desk and explained them I am using a strategy for which I do not use STOP LOSS. They said I have to prove my financial strength by submitting my bank statement or any document which proves that you are strong enough to lose money by trading. I told them I am using my own money and they don’t have to worry about my loses. If I do not have money, I could not invest money for trading. I told them I have Forex trading account with two more major Forex brokers and by using my strategy I am winning the trades without fixing Stop Loses. It all went to dump ears and they insisted me to send them my  bank statement. I sent them the bank statement but they started insisting me to send them copies of other documents for incomes and assets. I thought why do they ask me to prove my financial strength to trade with them using their platform and also the trades are not free. They are also benefited by my trades. Even then they did not take action to remove limitations on my trading account. In fact I am using a trading strategy in which I keep on increasing lots and trade distances by opening pending orders. When they keep on increasing margin, I am unable to open new lots and the trade is getting disturbed. Also some of the Stop loss positions get triggered and the equity get reduced unnecessarily. I explained those idiots about how I trade and how the limitations on my account act as a real hindrance for my successful trading. I would like to ask you what right a Forex Broker got to impose unnecessary restrictions on a client’s trading account as the money he uses to trade is his own and not from their family property. I explained them my problem and asked them to free my account from all the limitations at my own risk but they are not ready to do so. I really curse the moment I decided to open an account with IG the Idiots Group.
    • Hello, IG offers ProRealTime which comes with an excellent built in scanner.  You can easily drag & drop scanning settings or get right down to easy to understand programming, with excellent programming help from other users at Prorealcode.  The prorealcode offers many who write code for free & they can be used for scanning as well as auto trading if you feel brave.  Be wary with any auto trading, in my opinion as they show good results in back testing but in reality can be Very different.  ProRealTime also has a built in feature which allows you to scan for markets at support & resistance and much more.  I am very grateful for IG providing this for free for only 4 trades a month. https://www.ig.com/au/trading-platforms/prorealtime
