Hi, do you have the IG feeds to your mt4. 'File' > 'Open an Account' . (see pic below)

Dear Caseynotes

I am little new with that, I need to do that on the MT4 platform or the MT4 IG plateform ?

regards

no problem, you need to open mt4 so if downloaded from IG there should be IG mt4 icon on your desktop, double click to open mt4 and look in File tab (top left corner) of mt4.

you don't need to connect to metatrader as you should be connected to IG instead,

you seem to have the feed as the chart has opened.

Right click on any where in 'Market Watch' and click 'Show all' (see pic).

no you don't need to connect to metatrader at all, just IG.  So you don't need metatrader's mt4 or their feed, just the ones provided by IG. 

so go back to my first post above and check you have IG's live and demo feed, as per my picture.

to set up IG just click on each feed (live or demo) in turn and click 'next' and follow the instructions. For the live account you will need the info sent in 2 emails from IG, one with your login and one with your password. For demo account mt4 assigns a random one automatically.

metatrader 4 for buy a signal 

just seen you are looking for the metatraders 'signal service', you do that from the mt4 platform, it will have sent you mail, click on the 'Terminal' tab and see pic below

I read all the information but it look like it is impossible from IG to follow metatrader signal, I think IG blocked them

    • yes, with Renko you are changing from time based charts to price based and so remove a lot of noise and smooth out  the price action hopefully giving a clearer picture.
    • The twitter bears are taking a lot of flak at the mo and with good cause, especially the likes of Edgeye and Zerohedge who called a recession in 2015 and were wrong so they just repeat the call every year since in the expectation of being right eventually. Amusingly enough many traders have build this psychology into their trading plan, imagine anyone trying to continually short a bull market for 5 straight years, and yet as I've pointed out for years using the sentiment data of IG clients short/long positions that's exactly what many have been trying to do. Here's the thing, you don't need to guess, a chart will tell you if it's bearish. As Chris in the podcast above says, a market making new all time highs just can't be anymore BULLISH, there is only one way to go. So if the chart lines up with the macro and both are clearly bullish 'buy high and sell higher'. Do yourself a favour and spend the 50 minutes to listen to the podcast, you will learn something.  
    • Final hours of trading put in some bearish candles that may be a precursor to a period of bearish retrace if the 1H channel is broken on Monday.  If it does I will be expecting an A-B-C form retrace that may retest several support levels before a resumption of the long term Bull.  This is an opportunity to buy in lower, but patient is needed, it may take some time to evolve.  I have a cheeky Short in place...
