Discrepancies in today Wall Street Cash index

Question

Hi, may I ask is there a system glitch in IG for Wall street Cash index as Dow closed 27492 at 5.01am and the Dow  Futures was 27424 but IG Wall street at 5am is 27487, at 5.01am is 27454. Rightfully it should reflect the same value without any gap during the transition of market closing. 

There is a wide gap of 30 points difference (attached screenshot from the IG.)

Observed that the current points difference between Indices and Indices future of Dow 30 at Investing.com is 68 points (attached the screenshots from Investing.com)

Please kindly advise. Thanks!928722068_Screenshot_20191107-062442_IGTrading.thumb.jpg.011d0ad159944cfb47c24beeae4eacda.jpg

Hey @Cheerywalnuts, thanks for your post. 

The movement on the cash price was the dividend adjustent for Wall st. Adjustments are made 21:00 GMT, (so 5am Singapore time). We post the expected dividend adjustments on the community on 'Our Picks'. The Wall St adjustment that evening was posted as 32. 6.

    • Integrate v.11 of PRT with IG. Why are IG still using PRT v.10.3, when v11. which contains many significant improvements, was released over a year ago?
    • 1 last post - couldn't help myself!!! Simple 1 x 1 Gann Angles projected from the high/low price points - I'll admit that this is ultra advanced trading stuff here, the message here is two-fold The markets regardless of what you think or have been told are NOT random, they HAVE no choice but to work out a pre-set course according to their growth or decay Gann Angles are far far better at identifying support/resistance levels - BECAUSE the market or specifically price action is NOT 2D, we can clearly see price conforms to a grid system movement - that ain't 2Dimensional! You could blindly trade those gann angles if you have the right level of expertise and knowledge of them - look at the blue circles - price rallied then fell back to them and bounced pretty accurately, they won't all work and the highest swing high is under threat at which you can't project further levels from Again here's the secret of success - you could of skewed the R value into your favour by having a 20/25pt stop underneath, trailed a stop and made fantastic R value returns Gann said over 100 years ago "Markets are financial points of force and that EVERY low/high is connected to another low/high point of force in the FUTURE, as well as in the past" As you can clearly SEE - he was absolutely right - very few people look at the markets right, when you do you see things completely differently to most other traders/investors There's some real science behind markets moves - I might do a post in future months as understanding what is actually going on helps you see through the fog and makes things a bit clearer  I'll admit I've studied Gann for years and it is not easy, it is very hard to grasp - he hides hidden messages in his course that can throw you off for months and when you to apply his methods some just do not work
