Web Platform Questions


UN1234

Question

I am currently doing some testing of the web platform and have some questions:

  • 1:

    Charts in one workspace reset time to weekly if I change to a different workplace. Is there a way to disable that effect? Obviously I want the candles and charts to stay at the area and in the timeframe I left them (this kind of unwanted reset also happens every logout-login).

  • 2:

    If it is impossible to avoid that timeframe change with workspace switching, I notice there is a specific option to open a workspace in different browser tabs. Can having different browser tabs for different workspaces on the same account cause any problems with sync, security etc., or is it intended to work that way (I have had problems with that on other platforms in the past)? Same workspace across 2 different tabs do not update changes automatically on both, not sure what would happen...

    3:

    Each chart in a workspace can be split, but is there a way to display different assets/pairs/CFDs etc. in each such window? It seems I can only split the same asset/pair etc. into different timeframes, but not add e.g. EUR/USD & EUR/GBP in one split chart?

  • 4:

    Is there a targeted zoom function, or just the in-out buttons?

    While using zoom in/out with a mouse scroll wheel, is there a way to enable/disable a kind of 'maintain chart position'? (default is obviously not maintaining)

  • 5:

    Movement on the web chart seems to have 2 'modes': sometimes it allows me to move freely as I click a random area and move the cursor around, but other times it will only move strictly horizontally or strictly vertically, even though I am seemingly doing exactly the same movement with my mouse. Is that an intentional difference that can be triggered, or a glitch?

  • 6:

    When trying to click on the time or price scales, to compress or stretch the price and time, how it responds seems to depend on how far/close you are to the center/top/bottom/edges. Is there a way to make that response consistent, i.e. when clicking the price or time line and moving the cursor up/down it will always respond in the same way?

  • 7:

    Is there a separate risk/reward tool that can be placed on the chart, independently of the buy/sell menu?

  • 8:

    Can the toolbar be customized?

  • 9:

    Can the chart background color be chosen, aside from just light mode vs dark mode?

    Can the 'price line' / last value line color be chosen?

  • 10:

    Is there a built-in screenshot tool?

 

Thanks.

Hi, for saving layouts right click on the chart and select 'Layouts' though it should also auto save.

there is an issue with using different time frames if not using the split screen function.

You can an add multiple charts to a page by using the minimise tab (top right) and manually resize and re-position the charts on the page.

zooming is by the mouse wheel. 

the risk and reward is auto calculated on the deal/order ticket.

there is only light or dark modes as yet for background colour.

for screenshot tool right click on chart and choose 'export chart' and a copy will be placed in your downloads folder.

sorry but don't understand the other questions, the platform is still relatively new and there are new additions added frequently and the tech staff are always keen for feedback and suggestions.

There needs to be enough interest for a feature to get implemented (making a business case, something to add to year end assessments and help towards getting a bonus), I asked for the ability to choose a background colour some time ago but it's still either white or black.  Some people think black is easier on the eyes, but it burns my eyes to a crisp and makes me go almost blind.  Sigh.   Surprised you didn't notice the ability to 'export chart', there's your screenshot tool.

    • I have traded £/$ option for a few years but wondered if anyone can tell me why IG option prices fed from UBS Bank have drastically departed from the Black Scholes Pricing model recently, which it used to conform with? Whilst this is an OTC mkt IG have informed me in the past that they "follow" BSM pricing, which they used to do by and large but now:. Example: £/$ Sept 13100's: Call Option mid: 31. Put Option 510. BSM pricing model price on £/$ Sept 13100's:  Call Option 71  Put Option 343. Thanks.
    • DAX 40 showing first signs of possibly soon losing upside momentum Last week’s lows are line in sand for short-term uptrend. Source: Getty Images   Indices Shares Market trend DAX Stock market Candlestick Written by: Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London   Publication date: Monday 20 May 2024 15:51 In the medium- to long-term it pays to invest in stock indices when they hit record highs Last week the DAX 40, among several other international stock markets, hit a record high close to the minor psychological 19,000 mark before consolidating. But is now the right time to buy into the rally? Even though many investors are getting increasingly nervous, after all US stocks hit a new record high 23-times so far this year, historical analysis shows that investing when the stock market is at an all-time high is a medium- to long-term profitable strategy. According to an article written by IG Chief Market Analyst Chris Beauchamp “the US stock market hits new all-time highs more frequently than one might expect, with new records being set in 30% of months since 1926. On average, 12-month returns following an all-time high have been 10.3% above inflation, better than the 8.6% for periods not at new highs.” He also states that “the impact of avoiding the market after new highs can be severely detrimental to long-term wealth creation.” Data from Schroders shows that an investment in the US stock market in January 1926 would have created a 7.1% annualised return by the end of 2023. But is now the right time to buy into the Dax 40 rally? Last week’s new all-time high in the DAX 40 has been followed by a bearish ‘Dark Cloud Cover’ on the Japanese daily candlestick chart which promptly took it down to last week’s low at 18,628. On the front month June DAX 40 futures contract an even more bearish “Engulfing” pattern was formed. This in itself is not an issue but if a daily chart close below the 18,628 low (18,708 for the June DAX 40 futures contract) were to be made this week, at least a short-term corrective move lower is likely to be seen which could then be used to jump on the DAX 40 medium- to long-term bullish bandwagon at lower levels. Daily DAX 40 Candlestick Chart Source: TradingView The fundamental reason for such a possible retracement lower rearing its head could be triggered by Federal Reserve (Fed) commentary over the course of this week with perhaps some members re-iterating the “rates higher for longer” scenario and pushing back rate cut expectations. DAX 40 technical outlook From a technical analysis perspective, the fact that on the weekly, daily and hourly candlestick charts negative divergence can be spotted, does increase the odds of a minor top being formed in the current strong DAX 40 bull market. Negative divergence occurs when a new high on the underlying asset, in this case the DAX 40 hitting a record high last week, is not being accompanied by a higher reading of an indicator, such as the Relative Strength Index (RSI). When this happens, in more cases than not, at least a short-term correction against the trend usually takes place. In the current DAX 40 example such a bearish scenario would only become confirmed if at least a daily chart close below last week’s low at 18,628 were to be seen (18,708 on the DAX 40 June futures contract). Weekly DAX 40 Candlestick Chart Source: TradingView If this were to happen, the late-April high slightly above the 18,200 mark, the 55-day simple moving average (SMA) and October-to-May uptrend line at 18,140 may present a better medium- to long-term buying opportunity for investors than current levels.
