Logarithmic charts in basic charting (not the paid one)

Years and years ago before updates to the igmarkets internet dealing page/portal, it used to have logarithmic charting as an option on the charting options within the charts individually.  Would be noice if that option was re integrated to the basic charting.  Since i think log charts give a better representation of long term trend lines.. :-)

Welcome to the community! Thanks for your feedback,  we are always grateful for any and all feedback. I will be sure to pass on the point you have raised to the charts team as I am sure there may be others that would benefit from that.


You may be pleased to know we offer an advanced platform called ProRealTime that is very much designed for those that are looking for an advanced and fully customisable platform. More information can be found about it from the link below and one of the features of it is having a large array of price and candlestick tools and settings and one is to change the charts to logarithmic scaling. You can access this platform from the 'Tools' menu in the IG platform.




I do hope that helps and if there is anything else I can do to be of assistance then please let me know and I will be more than happy to help!

Agree that logarithmic charts should be available to all users.  Most other online brokers, even those with really terrible charting packages (Netwealth, CMC standard), do offer logarithmic charting as a basic option.  It's simply a checkbox that is ticked for linear or logarithmic.  Should be standard offering from IG.

Welcome to the IG community! I am quite interested to see the demand for the logarithmic charting. As a result I have passed on your feedback to Manager who is responsible for the IG charting offering and I hope that we may see this as an option in the future.


I hope that helps!

    • #USDCAD: Important Breakout   USDCAD broke and closed below a solid horizontal demand cluster on a daily. The broken structure turned into resistance now.   Probabilities will be high to see a bearish move from that. Goals will be 1.356 / 1.346 For Additional confirmation use: the best mt4 indicators
