Two Time frame Charts


Guest Johnny12

Question

Guest Johnny12

Using the IG platform is it possible to view the same pair across two different time frames across two different screens?

I have two screens and would like to view a pair on one side in a 4 hour chart and on my other screen on the 1 hour chart. I can get two browsers up but if i change the timeframe in one it changes the other one too automatically.

hi, you can open the whole platform again in a new  browser window by using a 'in incognito' window is one way around the problem.

I think there's a nicer way than what @Caseynotes suggested. If you use multiple screens, you can "tear-off" charts or even put a workspace in a separate browser tab. Then you can just drag whatever you want to a 2nd screen.

Does that make sense?

Yet again I think you need to have recourse to RealTimePro to make this work.

BTW, the RTP platform for me 'feels' different from the Web platform.  I see things differently when using it, even the P/L is different.  Anyone else feel that way?

The IG Web platform is pretty naff, and even the IG analysts don't use it.

IG, as a courtesy to your users you should make RTP access free for all and not have the cheek to charge for it when your web platform is so wonky.

But some might say that you can't make the perfect platform because there will always be compromise. Platforms then are aligned in to 2 groups, the emphasis being on either dealing or charting. The IG web based platform is designed for dealing first and foremost while the ProRealTime and MT4 platforms are chiefly designed for charting.

Having used them all I think IG should consider taking up MT5 to incorporate stock trading and drop PRT altogether.

I have found the best thing to do is just open up the practice account in another window and use that to draw on the H1 chart. Then just have my main screen with my live account and the D1 charts

    • The mischievous amphibian who became a meme legend? Well, meet Apu, his wide-eyed, optimistic cousin, taking the internet by storm – and now, perhaps, the world of finance. Apu, also known as Peepo or Helper, is a kinder, gentler Pepe variant. Tired of the often-scammy memecoin scene, Apu (or rather, Apu's devoted community) decided to create something different: $APU, a "fairly launched, fully transparent coin" built by and for "all frens." Here's where things get interesting. $APU's narrative is one of resilience and community power. Fueled by the cryptocurrency community's enthusiasm, $APU was initially launched with the best of intentions. However, the dream took a nasty turn when the original developer pulled the rug – a disheartening scenario for many crypto enthusiasts. Today, $APU stands as a testament to community empowerment. It's a beacon of hope for projects facing similar challenges, a reminder that collaboration and resilience can transform setbacks into stepping stones. It's also worth noting that another community-driven memecoin, $MASSA, recently found a home on the Bitget exchange. Could this be a sign of things to come for $APU? What are your thoughts? Does Apu's story inspire you? Can a memecoin truly become a legitimate force in the volatile world of cryptocurrency? Share your thoughts and predictions in the comments below!
    • The price shown on the graph is the price after the IG's fee taken. That is the reason for discrepancy.
    • I am a relatively newbie. I have seen similar and also have seen automated closed position has a loss though the close price I have set was above the price I have bought. After about 6 months with a lot of mysterious losses though my closing price was above the opening price, I discovered this was because of the amount charged for opening/closing a position. This is right below BUY and SELL boxes on the right in very small font. This amount vary from  0.9 to 33 or more depending on the level of trading at the time you open or close. It also happens (god knows why it is set to be so, except that the trader is not watching) when there is a lot of buying and selling going on, like an important news has suddenly been out and the result was not the market expected. As a result, I delete all my automated BUY/SELL values before I stop trading for the day. Remember, the the software is set up to favor the IG, not the retail seller. That is why 70% or more end up in loss.
