The basic functionality of showing your win/loss and your total losses (or winnings) over multiple time periods is greatly appreciated.  No need to download a gazillion spreadsheets and calculate it all manually.

is that all, mine just says 'not enough history to view analytics' (as i'm using mt4).

No ,don't use that account now.Back on the UK one 

@CharlotteIG Is this rolled out for everyone 

Unless ,its technically not a UK account anymore ..When the brexit 31st Oct deadline was approaching my account was migrated to IG Europe  so I could still trade in the event of a hard brexit

Analytics make it easier to validate your trading system and prevent false hope leading you towards bankruptcy. 

I would say use analytics to make sure your system actually works before going live but this function is not available on the demo platform yet so find something else until it is.

In retrospect I should have spent my first 12 months on the demo, but it takes a great deal of self-discipline to be about to do that and I admire anyone who can manage to resist the temptation to bet real money for 12 months or more.

nearly but not quite. the point is you should have been collecting data the whole time. rather than just punching BUY SELL on demo you would have been better off trialing your rules based strategy (not the average basic platitudes based one) on a live average market that allows MICRO  trading size. (mt4)

With real data you can then evaluate what works for real rather than hopes and dreams on demo and so build from a solid base.

The IG's analytics looks fine, but not that useful. Thinking from a trader's perspective in designing these types of system could go a long way. In my view these are the must have for a good trade analytics feature:

  • Currently basic stuffs like custom date is missing, and analytics does not provide much info. I believe these will be added because these are the most basic stuff.
  • Probably the most important and useful addition would be to have the ability to UPLOAD a Chart Image and put a note for each trade.¬†This feature would take this to a new level as there are no proper software that allows this making it dfficult to keep journals.

Thank you for the feedback.

I will let the project manager know your points. It is in the testing stage at the moment so the project managers are looking for feedback on IG analytics.

yes, fully agree, I expect this to be added to but traders who currently use nothing at all but a hope and a prayer can start seeing early on that their system isn't working and so start making amendments instead of drifting on for months getting nowhere.

Custom date and adding pics would make that process easier to do.

It makes it easier to see how much money you've lost and that is very potent.

We're not offering trade analytics on MT4, just CFD, FSB and forex. 

The project manager informed me of some options they're looking into going forward. Do keep in mind that these are not definite but I wanted to share the future options they're considering: 

  • Ability to tag individual trades
  • We're discussing¬†showing a chart of the underlying during the lifetime of the trade
  • Chart your PnL over time
  • The ability to drill into markets to see a trade by trade breakdown

Trade Analytics is awesome! 

 

What would be cool would be if IG added a measure of how I'm doing relative to all IG Traders. For example:

Win Ratio 67 % followed by "THis is in the Top 25% of IG traders)

    • The "best" percentage of your investment portfolio to allocate to cryptocurrencies depends on your individual financial situation, risk tolerance, investment goals, and time horizon. There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as what's appropriate for one person may not be suitable for another. Here are some considerations to help you determine the right percentage for your situation: Risk Tolerance: Cryptocurrencies are known for their price volatility. Consider how comfortable you are with the possibility of significant price fluctuations. Generally, if you have a lower risk tolerance, you may allocate a smaller percentage to cryptocurrencies. Financial Goals: Your investment goals play a crucial role in determining your crypto allocation. Are you investing for short-term gains, long-term growth, or a specific financial milestone (e.g., retirement)? The time horizon for your goals can influence your crypto allocation. Diversification: Diversification is a risk management strategy that involves spreading your investments across different asset classes. Diversifying your portfolio can help reduce risk. Experts often recommend not putting all your funds into a single investment, including cryptocurrencies. The specific percentage you allocate to crypto should consider the diversity of your overall portfolio. Knowledge and Research: Your understanding of cryptocurrencies matters. If you're well-versed in the crypto space and have confidence in your ability to evaluate and manage crypto investments, you might allocate a higher percentage. However, if you're new to cryptocurrencies, it's wise to start with a smaller allocation until you gain more experience. Financial Situation: Consider your current financial situation, including your income, expenses, and existing investments. Ensure that you have an emergency fund and meet your other financial obligations before allocating a significant portion to cryptocurrencies. Regulatory and Tax Considerations: Be aware of the regulatory and tax implications of cryptocurrency investments in your jurisdiction. Tax laws regarding cryptocurrencies can vary significantly, and it's essential to comply with them. Asset Allocation Strategy: Many financial experts recommend following a structured asset allocation strategy based on your risk tolerance and investment goals. This strategy might suggest a certain percentage for different asset classes, including stocks, bonds, real estate, and cryptocurrencies. Regular Review: Periodically review and rebalance your portfolio to ensure it aligns with your goals and risk tolerance. Cryptocurrency prices can change rapidly, so your allocation may need adjustments over time. Ultimately, there is no universally "best" percentage to invest in cryptocurrencies. It's a highly individual decision that should be made based on your unique circumstances and objectives. It's also important to conduct thorough research and consider seeking advice from a financial advisor or investment professional before making any significant changes to your investment portfolio.
