IG Trade Analytics


Recommended Posts

As I trade on the MT4 platform (which has it's own analytics) I don't have any trades to analyse on the IG platform so nothing comes up at all not even a blank data set. Could anyone post a pic showing what analytics IG offer, blacking out any personal data, to start a discussion on the best use of what is available from IG, how it could best be used and possibly improved in the future. Thanks.

Hey ya, here is that screen shot...  its basic...  but a step in the right direction

Thanks, above is an example (lifted off the net) of the mt4 trade analytics you get with the mt4 platform so IG still have some way to go but most importantly the basics are there for quick strategy testing.

Any strategy needs to be tested over a number of trades (20 - 50) before it can give back data as to if it's going to be viable or not. The IG stats give just enough to be able to VERIFY a strategy, just having a set strategy is not enough, it needs to be tested before risking too much money.

Even though the IG analysis is quite basic, it has been excellent in helping me define/verify my strategy for trading...  Even thought I have only been using it for probably a month, it has helped me tighten up on my trades and has been incredibly useful in removing the "emotional" aspect of trading...  Running completely by the numbers I suppose lol... still got some ways to go, but for the moment, it is good enough for me....  I will look at some more in depth analysis eventually, so some of this conversation has peaked my interest in looking into some other tools

you're right it is good enough to help develop a workable system. 

So count 20 trades and note the score, is it positive or negative, do I need to make major changes or maybe some small adjustments. Keep comparing every 20 trades to refine your system, keep note of what has been tried, what worked and what didn't. 

Don't be tempted to abandon a test before the 20 trades are up, you may have just hit an unlucky run, you need the average over a reasonable sample size to know.

    • HI,  Please if any IG supporting staff can answer the questions below? 1. in the upcoming AMC/APE vote on 14 March 2023, can shareholder that hold AMC and APE at IG able to make a vote? I also have AMC and APE at IBKR and they did send out a notification to inform me that I can do proxy vote. Will IG do the same? 2. the upcoming vote is to determine APE covert back to AMC then do reverse spilt. Last year after APE issued, IG staff told me that they have to move APE to share dealing account from my ISA account as ISA is not eligible to hold APE (which is completely unbelivable, my APE at AJ Bell and HL are still sitting in ISA account). Anyway, if the conversion and reverse spilt is going to happen, will IG move my APE back to ISA account for the corporate action? Many Thanks
    • The epidemic in recent years has produced profound changes in people's lifestyles, and many of their activities have started to be developed in the virtual world, which plays an important role in promoting the development of the universe of meta. Games, as an important part of the universe of meta, will be the first industry to gain the benefits , but the following conditions are still indispensable for blockchain games to achieve better development.   - Wallets and Exchanges. Through the use of wallets, game users can truly take control of the assets in the game, and exchanges provide a trading platform and liquidity for these game assets NFT, helping users trade and revitalize their game assets. Wallets are a key application for depositing blockchain assets. Currently, wallets such as Metamask are not enough to support the extensive adoption of block games, and wallets will further advance community drive the popularity of blockchain games.  - Game playability. The biggest difference between blockchain games and traditional games is that gamers are also investors. Many blockchain games have gone out of course, treating all users as investors only and forgetting that the essence of making games is to develop high-quality games that users are interested in paying for. If most people play a game just to make money, and no one is ready to pay for it, it becomes a side-scam. The revenue of the participants of the side scam comes from the money of the people who come later, and if there are not enough people who come later, they will not be able to cash in the revenue, leading to the breakdown.  - Speed and performance. A high level of concurrency is the characteristic of game applications, so Wax, Coinan Chain and Polygon, which are public chains with a high level of concurrency and low fees, have attracted a large number of game developers. In the future, with the maturity of technologies such as Ethernet Layer 2 and slice scaling, as well as the maturity of other gaming public chain technologies compatible with EVM, blockchain games will have a better development and operation environment.  - Cross-chain and interaction. Cross-chain and interaction of game assets will be a direction of future development of metaverse games, and blockchain should be connected and accessible like the Internet. The maturity of cross-chain technology in the future will promote the cross-chain transfer of game assets and NFT, and improve the interaction experience of the system                                                                                     The game should maintain the operation of the project by relying on the payment of some users or selling profitable products, just like the new blockchain game Fairy Cat in 2023, which developed diverse gameplay for players and increased the playability of the game, thus got the recognition of many players. Blockchain games need to work hard on game experience and playability. Token economics is essentially just a kind of interest structure , and even good token economics cannot replace the development, operation and profitability of the project itself. It is believed that with the maturity of the above conditions, more and more game developers and investors will enter this industry and together promote the production of some blockchain games with beautiful graphics, first-class experience and high playability.
    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
