Easy PRT fault that IG have not bothered to get fixed yet

Recommended Posts

IG PRT has a fault, which I have brought to IG's attention weeks and weeks ago.

They thanked me for bringing it to their attention and added this can be fixed with a simple pin.

But nothing has happened yet.

 

I had often thought that IG's service and commitment to quality was usually second to none. -

 

When scrolling through PRT lists (manually set up and pre-set watch lists to trade) there is a pin in the corner, so you can pin your watch list on top of the charts.  This enables you to scroll through your watch lists using the down arrow key on your keyboard very quickly to eyeball each chart and move on quickly. This is how lists should work.

 

But with the list created from the Pro Scanner the pin has gone missing. This means that as you eyeball each stock generated by the scan you have to tab back through your open windows to your generated screened list in order to  move down the list to view the next stock.

 

I would like to use the Pro Screener every day but this slows the process right down and with a generated list of 50 stocks it is a right pain in the fingers and I often think, sod this I can't be bothered and miss out on trading opportunities.

 

I believe this is a simple fix and this shows a lack of commitment to quality by IG.

 

Thank you

 

Jason

Hi Jason,

 

Is the pin on the Lists window - I don't see it on mine?

 

Can you upload a screenshot?

Hi ,

 

Sorry to hear about the issue you are having with regards to pinning your watchlist on the platform. I would be glad to have this investigated further for you.

 

So that I can quantify this for the ProRealTime team do you know when this feature you noticed was missing and with that they can identify what could have contributed to the problem you are having such as if they released an update.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

    • This is my 2% swing file on the FTSE100 Index: Thought I'd show this as its messy! As you can SEE - there are multiple 2 higher lows that just did NOT work for one reason or another - this is why money management is crucial However, when it did work - the results were (profit target of 240pts, stop of 25 pts = 9.6R) If 1R = 2% of account then you're up 19% in 4 trading days Now the smart ones of you, will be asking yourself "How often does this happen in a YEAR on a DAILY chart?"  The answer is go and look - This is the water, I've led you to it, it's now up to those that want to win at this game to investigate Oh and YES, there are many more ultra simple trading methods in a year on a daily chart with these sorts of R profit value returns - the SP500, Nasdaq100, FTSE250, FTSE100, EURUSD etc etc etc all produce OPPORTUNITIES per year that return you 100%+ and nearer 300% PER market - Nothing more than a swing file on your charts! NO Indicators, No Moving Averages, just RAW price action I think for this thread I'll leave it there - If you can't prosper with these ultra simple methods then you're doing something massively wrong and if you go back and check the rules to success that i started this thread with, you'll be messing up on 1 or more of them - REVISIT them and learn them The one thing i will say is "To win big in the markets, you have to do what most others aren't doing - WD Gann showed me in his works the 2 Higher Lows / Lower Highs trade set-up, he wrote about it 100+ years ago! Along with many others that produce mega returns from the markets - I'm willing to bet very little is published out there on this subject" If you go down the Gann route - contact me - it is fraught with bad information and works, this is because people devote a lot of years to researching Gann and when they get to the end and realise they can't work it out they still publish the sub-standard work they have been researching, which then clogs up the trading literature world and after reading 10 so called Gann books and getting nowhere people then form the opinion that Gann is a load of tosh - I was one of those people back in early 2010's, then I did something most others wouldn't bother doing, I decided to research and discount it all myself I can tell you for a FACT: That Gann angles WORK  Time Cycles WORK Price Retracement and Expansion ratios WORK But only if you use them correctly, in the right context and conditions Why did the SP500 Index stop dead in March 2009 @ 666pts?  Back in the 1900's WD Gann wrote of the "Gravity Centre" or the 50% level - there lies the answer Good luck on your trading journey, most f you are going to fail because you're not applying the keys/rules to success - this is another fact. Here's a little bonus material Gann Angles chart for you If you KNOW the Time Cycle date and a simple Gann 1x1 angle falls onto THAT date (to the day) then you can be quietly confident that price is going to reach said 1x1 Gann angle within a few days of the date! The KEY is knowing Time Cycle dates - the ones above AREN'T the Time Cycles Gann mentions in his works THT
    • Here's another 2 LOWER highs
    • Simply basic price patterns can make you an absolute fortune in this game - look at the one above on GOLD! This is 100% why I advocate using swing files - you get to see the market in a different perspective  The chart is UK: WWH - the spread is way to wide to trade this  The 2 high Lows trade to the left of the chart, worked, but you'd of broken even on the trade at worst - This is WHY money management is crucial in this game! There's nothing special to this trading method - It's also an Elliott Wave (EW) method too, but often if you employ strict EW rules you wouldn't take the trade. TIP: If you have software that can search for Elliott Waves, then set it to look for Wave 4's  the blue W4 box on my software tells me that price is in the perfect price AND time zone for a EW 4 If price CLOSES below the #3 low then it would CONFIRM a bearish swing low  For simplicity all we want is for price to validate the trade by trading LOWER than #3 and we'd be in the trade Again simple money management rules - Stop = 25% of the 50 period ATR (20pts) / once up 2 x risk (40pts) stop goes to break-even +0.1 to ensure some sort of profit and then protect 40% of any open profit  Opportunity, excellent R profit potential, excellent risk management = As good as it gets, doesn't guarantee a wining trade though
