New share dealing platform - what do you want

Recommended Posts

Had an email on the new platform today for share dealing. Looks good and same as the spread betting one so that’s a good start. Good charts and whatever. 

but I thought it would’ve a good idea to see if we can create a wish list for the new platform for share dealing? 
 

ill start....

Automatic dividend reinvestments! DRIP functionality is a must.

The ability to have two separate instances of two different trading platforms in two different tabs of my browser.

Right now if I navigate to the new share dealing platform in one tab, my spread betting account in the other tab automatically redirects to the new share dealing platform also.

Totally unnecessary.

A deal preview tool like they have on Tradingview. Unlike our preview, it remains on the chart so you can see where you are against the original plan. It looks a bit like the measurement tool but makes 2:1, 3:1 etc easier to see.

Would like a full Level 2 functionality (albeit a premium paid for service) as there are very few platforms in my opinion that have a decent GUI on UK Level 2 (IG CFD Level 2 is limited to select securities) . And the ability to invest in funds (not just Investment Trusts). This is one of the reasons I donlt have an ISA or SIPP with IG as they don't allow you to buy OIECs

Will be good if the daily profit / loss can be seen in (my positions). Also will be good to see change during the day. (Up or down)

Thank you for this feedback. 

All of these comments have been sent to the developers. I will get back to you as soon as I have a response from them.

This is a great idea - the new platform will have future iterations coming, so it would be interesting to hear what you need, and why?  The more context we have to understand what is needed, the more it helps us build the right thing. Please do keep the suggestions coming.

investment webpage is full of this stuff, https://www.ig.com/uk/investments/news/investing/2018/03/27/how-compounding-works-to-supercharge-your-investments

but then the share dealing platform doesn't allow automatic dividend reinvestment.

The positions panel shows the P/L, P/L %, and P\L GBP.  Is this what you're after, or are you looking for an 'overall positions P\L" to show? 
As for change, if you mean % change per position, then we are aware of that one. If you mean something different, please do clarify so I can add it to the request list.  
Thank you

If you could provide some detail about what you don't like, that would be really useful. Tell us what is missing/wrong, and why? 
Thank you

L2 is available on the new platform, which can be turned on via MyIG (dashboard), Settings, and Data Feeds. 
It shows up on the ticket like this (attached). 
If this doesn't meet your needs, please do tell us more about what you need and why, so we can add this to our request list for improvements.  
Thank you

Can you let us know what it is you don't like. You will still have access to the old platform using the dropdown next to 'Share dealing' on the MyIG page, whist you learn how the new platform works (we appreciate it's quite different to the old platform).

interesting.

the whole data feed thing with the new platform is so poor tho and complex. We really want to just flick it on in the platform - or see delayed prices for example.

Also ETF's aren't great. You want to search for SPY - the most liquid and heavily traded ETF in the world and you get this

why in this order? I have to go 5th one down to find it (and even then that's only because I know the rough price of it at the moment. Anyone else would go for the top one, which is a weird Australian dollar version?

and god know about all the rest...

New Platform:

- visually unappealing - tried to be too clean with minimalistic design but makes everything difficult to access.

- No simple access to information on stocks and shares e.g. RNS announcements / news

- screens constantly closing and having to be reopened to view markets

- inability to quickly move graphs and aspects of screens.

 

In simple terms - scrap the new system.

Hey, developers asked why you wanted both open. Is it simply to have the ease of flicking over to another tab and accessing the other account rather than constantly changing between the two?

Yes that's right.  I might want to be dealing in shares and spread bets at the same time 🤠

@dmedin unfortunately it's not something they can do. 😞 

We have added FTSE100, cable and Wall st (data only) on share dealing (some of the most traded on leveraged) in hope that one of these markets are something the trader has on so can keep an eye whilst dealing on non-leveraged.

Suppose I can open PRT for share dealing, or something like that.

Also, the moment you open up another account, all the pop out windows - eg say charts, prices etc that you have nicely arranged on your desktop disappear. So to flick between trading accounts is not that easy as your trading layout keeps being deleted each time. Doing it once a day is acceptable if slightly annoying but any more and it becomes restrictive on your trading activity.  There is no way to save the dealing platform layout with automatic chart windows open up OUTSIDE the browser window each time you login.

Few ideas:

  • Open/close positions from chart
  • Dividend automatic reinvestment
  • Daily P/L
  • Transparency on FX cost when dealing in other currencies in the "History" tab - my account is in £ and when I buy shares in $ I don't see any commission, but I end up paying a variable FX cost. That should be clearly visible, not incorporated in the total transaction amount.
  • Trailing stop loss 
  • Ability to reorder watch lists on the left menu
  • Show stop/limit orders on chart
  • Ability to remove sections in the left menu (i.e. not interested in cryptocurrencies)
  • In the "history" section I see value always negative even when I'm selling (which should money in, not out). I guess this is a bug.
  • Adding funds and more stock markets (i.e. Italy missing)

Most of those points would be solved giving access to share dealing to PRT.

I think you have done a great job, needs just some fine tuning.

Trailing stop losses please.   I have no idea why share dealing companies don't set this up as a a standard feature.

I have L2 enabled but I cannot see the market depth for any equities as you mention above.

    • Integrate v.11 of PRT with IG. Why are IG still using PRT v.10.3, when v11. which contains many significant improvements, was released over a year ago?
    • 1 last post - couldn't help myself!!! Simple 1 x 1 Gann Angles projected from the high/low price points - I'll admit that this is ultra advanced trading stuff here, the message here is two-fold The markets regardless of what you think or have been told are NOT random, they HAVE no choice but to work out a pre-set course according to their growth or decay Gann Angles are far far better at identifying support/resistance levels - BECAUSE the market or specifically price action is NOT 2D, we can clearly see price conforms to a grid system movement - that ain't 2Dimensional! You could blindly trade those gann angles if you have the right level of expertise and knowledge of them - look at the blue circles - price rallied then fell back to them and bounced pretty accurately, they won't all work and the highest swing high is under threat at which you can't project further levels from Again here's the secret of success - you could of skewed the R value into your favour by having a 20/25pt stop underneath, trailed a stop and made fantastic R value returns Gann said over 100 years ago "Markets are financial points of force and that EVERY low/high is connected to another low/high point of force in the FUTURE, as well as in the past" As you can clearly SEE - he was absolutely right - very few people look at the markets right, when you do you see things completely differently to most other traders/investors There's some real science behind markets moves - I might do a post in future months as understanding what is actually going on helps you see through the fog and makes things a bit clearer  I'll admit I've studied Gann for years and it is not easy, it is very hard to grasp - he hides hidden messages in his course that can throw you off for months and when you to apply his methods some just do not work
