AUS200 or ASX200


Recommended Posts

Hello, bit of a noob to IG and trading generally. I just wanted to know if the AUS200 is the same as the ASX200, as the rates appear not to correlate with each other. I have asked on a few finance forums, and never received an answer. Where do I find the ASX200 in IG?  Many thanks,   Chris Morgan

Hi Chris, I'm a newbie so can't help, but can support you 🙂 I also want to follow the ASX200 but IG's Australia 200 values are different to the ASX200. For example today, the ASX200 closed at 5488 as per the asx website. It is also 1 hour after closure, so no delay in this figure. However, checking IG Australia 200 graph with 1 hour intervals, if I go to 3pm, it shows it closed at 5514 !!!  Also, throughout the day, it simply never matched. All I want to understand is whether or not it is the same thing.  Different prices don't worry me (as it is the trend that is important), but if it is something different to the ASX 200, then I need to know. Can someone enlighten us? Please???

Hi Chargrill and many thanks for your reply Yes, thats why I was wondering about the price disparity between the 2, so was beginning to think they were two different things. Amazingly I have posted this question at quite a few different finance forums, and as it required a relatively simple yes or no answer, not one person replied, except your good self, of course.

So I can safely assume there is no ASX200 listing on IG 🙂

Happy trading, and keep safe!!

Cheers  Chris

    • Hi all, Got a successful trade on my demo account.  Looking at NG to continue its upward trend to move back above the 50MA and 100MA and eventually retest 4000. Opened a position at 3825 with stop loss at 3740 and a target of 3965 (not ideal risk/reward ratio sadly). Position opened after moving above the 50MA. Went above the 100MA, fell back, then pumped back above the 100MA during the 7pm high volume spike, I closed the position at 3915 for £225 (£2.50/point).  Upward trend looks to continue setting higher highs and higher low on the hourly since Thursday.
