Spikes in US "all session" stocks

Question

20160723_004529 (800x450).jpg20160723_004734 (800x450).jpg20160723_004745 (800x450).jpg 

 

I spoke with IG twice in the past there is a problem with US stocks "all session". I don't know how they allow it to happen.

I changed the settings to opening hours in US but the daily charts still have spikes. about 30-50% is affected. I uploaded a bad picture but still ok for proof. VISA, Haliburton, Disney...etc

 

Daily Charts on FX are misaligned, opens and closes UTC instead of following the currency opening hours

 

I was waiting for somebody to compete with IG, wasn't anyone so far but recently Saxo Markets just showed up.

 

Do you guys have these problems?

 Hi 

I checked my Disney chart (Daily) - it looked fine in both PRT and IG charts.

I would attach it so you could see it but I'm not sure how to attach charts to messages :(

Hi

 

What time settings do you have them on?

I changed couple of time settings but still some spikes, beside chart looks weird with gaps.

 

Thanks for reply

I used the daily time period with 200 units loaded - the same as in your images above :)

Hi  and .  Macd  is right, your chart should look like this (this one Visa inc) 

To post screen shot to the forum see pic 1.

Try 'help' - 'tech support' to send a message to IG tech explaining the problem, you can also send screen shots to them but google 'screen shot' first to see how to take one.

    • Hi all, I used very tight stop losses which means for example like today the min stop requirement moved from the standard 4 to 12 points. This basically prevents me trading while this is in place. It's a frustration but is it a bad thing? Perhaps I should take the view that the market is too volatile and just wait it out. Some would think though that this is the right time to be trading.

      Answering my own question i was charting off a spot chart and interpreting that data onto a futures contract....major newbie mistake do not do what i did. First lesson for me is trade the charts i am using to inform my decision making. second lesson, do not use spot charts to trade futures- i feel like a right numpty.

But the interesting thing is that he estimates the IFR (infection fatality rate) at the low end of 0.4%.
