Bad Ticks on PRT Charts


ST

Recommended Posts

Many PRT charts (and the basic charts , although I tend not to use those) have bad ticks. This results in candles displaying huge spikes/shadows/wicks (call them what you will) which throws out all the indicators one might have set up. In these circumstances any meaningful technical analysis is rendered useless. I come across some every day.

 

 What is the best way to inform you through the internet so that you can fix them?

 

1) Email help desk

2) Email through the technical help in the charts

3) Using the Feedback facility in Market Research

4) Using this thread

5) or some other means

 

The chart I wanted to use today that needs fixing is PGLC - Pershing Gold (US Tech)

 

Could you also add the chart for KGI - Kirkland Lake Gold - TSE. This one comes up on the spread bet platform but no PRT chart.

 

TIA

Hi @ST,

 

Firstly, thanks for bringing these to our attention. Whilst we do try to maintain clear charts for analysis purposes, sometimes some spikes do slip though.

 

If the spike is on the IG charts, please use the feedback button, as that comes straight through to the technical support desk. For any on ProRealTIme, please can you drop our helpdesk an email (helpdesk.uk@ig.com), and this will get escalated to our technical team.

 

I'll raise a ticket for the PGLC chart now. Also, to confirm, you can view the Kirkland Lake Gold chart on IG, just not on PRT?

 

Thanks,
Dan

Thanks for your prompt reply Dan and your response to my request!

 

I will use the help desk email in future for reporting PRT charts with bad ticks

 

Yes, an IG chart for Kirkland Lake Gold does load up and it is fine, no bad ticks.

 

Thanks again

The staff at IG WERE acknowledging and correcting the numerous faulty charts I was reporting - quite often on a daily basis - through the chart emailing facility. Disappointingly, having charts corrected is becoming less reliable.

 

Let's face it, it should not be required for a customer to have to constantly inform of faulty charts! The integrity of data is paramount in this industry and any company recognising this would have people to ensure this is maintained to the highest of standards!

    • Hey @pravid17 I hope you're well.  In the leveraged trading industry there are brokers who don't hedge client's exposure and brokers (like ourselves) who do hedge client's exposure.  In a perfect world the exposure of short clients would net off the trades of long clients however this is not always the case. Our hedging model allows us to take an exposure in the underlying market for the remaining exposure which doesn't offset - This way we don't need to hedge every trade, worry about profits of our clients and results in lower costs for hedging in the underlying market (commissions, interest etc.). So say 60% of IG customer exposure in the ASX was long and 40% of exposure on the ASX was short. The 40% would net each other off but there's a remaining 20% of customers who need to be hedged to cover their positions. We go into the market and hedge this.  We make our money primarily through our spreads and overnight funding  with other fees making up a small proportion of our revenue. I would like to remind also that IG is regulated by several bodies globally, including top-tier regulators like the UK's FCA, Germany's BaFIN, Australia's ASIC - This should be quite reassuring from a dealing execution and transparency perspective.  I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other question 
    • A survey from Reviews.org, which featured 1000 Americans, found that as many as 1 in 4 US subscribers may quit the service in the next year.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 23 September 2022  There was an interesting breakdown, but the main reason was affordability. Only 18% said they would move to a cheaper competitor. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the numbers. Netflix subscription woes Netflix Inc (All Sessions) could be in for a rough time ahead over the next 12 months if a new survey is anything to go by, which was conducted in the US. Out of the 1,000 adults that took part in this survey undertaken by Reviews.org, around 25% of those that were covered said that they would be cancelling their Netflix subscription within the next 12 months. Now, it says with that 25% of US subscribers to Netflix considering leaving, not to join a competitor, but mostly because of pressures on household bills. This is how it is split: rising cost of subscriptions - 40% inflation - 20% a lack of content - 22% spending more time on the services of others - 18% So you can see, a minority said they were going to other services, such as those provided by Disney Plus or Amazon Prime. The cost of Netflix has risen dramatically this year as its basic plan increased by 11% in January and its other plans by 20% to 25%. Now these were the first price increases for three years, so that itself is relatively new for a lot of subscribers. Netflix share price Let's take a look at the Netflix share price. You can see on the far left hand side of this chart the COVID lows at $290.39. We saw a whacking great increase there of 141% to the top and the record high in Netflix shares back in November 2021. And that was when subscriptions were rising, people were paying more for their services, and it was all humming beautifully. And then all of a sudden people started questioning the numbers of streaming services they were undertaking with some deciding to withdraw from Netflix. All of a sudden the big drops started coming through with profit warnings and sales warnings. We've recently hit a new low of $162.50. Since then there has been a little bit of an increase. We're currently trading at $232.75, but we are down by a margin of 1.75% in today's session, which reflects this news that we could well see a relatively large drop in subscribers for Netflix in the US within the next 12 months.
    • Market data to trade the week of 26 September: Nasdaq; NXT From the economic calendar next week IG technical analyst, Axel Rudolph, picks up on a short trade on the Nasdaq around US inflation data. Meanwhile, despite another light week of corporate data, Axel picks out the chart of Next plc (NXT) as an interesting trade to think about.
