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.. :-)

Hi 

 

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.

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.

Hi  

 

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!

    • Corn Elliott wave analysis Function - Trend  Mode - Counter-Trend Structure - Expecting Impulse Wave  Position - Wave 2 Direction - Wave 3 Details - Wave 2 may not drop inside the 419-413 support zone where we expected it to end. Perhaps it has been completed with the surge to 438’4 and the subsequent corrective response. Wave 3 is probably in play and will be confirmed by the breach above 438’4. However, a double three corrective pattern into the zone is still likely. So we need an important impulse break upwards to confirm wave 2 has ended. Between 26 February and 13 March 2024, Corn gained over 12%. However, that’s merely a 17% recovery of the April 2022-to-February 2024 sell-off. Thus, there is still some way upside to go. From the Elliott wave perspective, it seems the current recovery will extend higher into the 22-month sell-off. By projection, the price might correct up to 571-623 Fibonacci retracement area. Today’s commodity blog post intends to show traders how to gain from this bullish corrective cycle. On the daily chart, from 824, we identified a corrective decline from April 2022 down to 394 in February 2024. Ideally, an impulse wave should follow to break above 824 in the long term. However, in this case, we will consider a 3-wave corrective bounce at first, and if the price supports, an impulse later. Currently, the price is in blue wave ‘A’ of blue wave ’1’ (both circled). We expect either to start with an impulse wave. On the H4 time frame, we can see the sub-waves of the current bounce better. On the H4 chart, a rally from 394 has completed the first impulse - wave 1. This is an indication that we may be right with the expected strong corrective rally or a long-term bullish impulse. From the end of wave 1, wave 2 has emerged and is quite debatable in the way it’s being structured. We expected wave 2 to end in the 419-413 key support zone. However, it appears wave 2 has ended with an expanding flat pattern. Flats can be quite tricky and can quickly transform a different pattern. Two ways to confirm wave 3 has started: 1. price breaks above blue wave ‘b’ of 2 high and  2. an impulsive break above 438 If the price confirms the end of wave 2, we should see wave 3 between 492 and 515 or maybe even higher. Thus, there’s more room to the upside for buyers to explore. However, if wave 3 is not confirmed, a further dip into the 419-423 or even lower shouldn’t come as a surprise.

    • Fears of a wider regional conflict in the Middle East weighed on market sentiment overnight, though a higher open is expected for the Dax. This flight to safety was triggered by news of an Iranian strike on Israel with hundreds of drones and missiles, raising concerns over potential Israeli retaliation. Safe-haven assets like gold and the US dollar strengthened, though the Japanese yen weakened to a 30-year low against the dollar, highlighting that interest rates remain the primary market focus despite geopolitical risks. Oil prices dipped in Asian trading as the risk of Iranian retaliation was already priced in last week. While the US has stated it will not take part in a counter-offensive against Iran, the volatility index remains near five-month highs, reflecting heightened market nervousness. Any further oil price increases could add to inflationary pressures, complicating central banks' efforts to control rising consumer prices. This week, markets will closely watch US economic data releases, including retail sales and comments from Federal Reserve officials, for clues on the monetary policy outlook amid persistent inflation concerns. The US earnings season is also underway, with mixed results from major banks getting the season off to a lacklustre start.
