Clock on platform

I think the IG platform is great but what I find missing is a simple clock showing minutes and seconds..  This must be an easy thing to implement but would be really useful to have a constant view of the time, especially when you are looking to trade an event at a specific time.

Thanks for your suggestion. 

I will put this forward. Are you looking to have it on the web platform or apps?

Let me know and I will make sure this feedback goes to relevant teams.

Hi Sonia, I am curious about what you say. I usually trade on my Mac, and the time is always shown on the top bar of the screen. I think PCs show the time on the bottom right.

Why would you need that extra clock for?

Apologies for the delay in my response.  In the past using different platforms it shows the time, hour, minutes and seconds as part of the platform.  I also use a Mac but the time only shows when you move your mouse to the top of the screen, also it only shows the hours and minutes.  It is handy to know the seconds too especially when trading a major event. ie 1.29pm, would be great to see 1.29pm and 50 seconds which would mean an event starting at 1.30pm would start in 10 seconds.  I believe it would be a simple, useful addition to the site which could be incorporated on the top bar on the website where it currently shows your P&L.

My suggestion would be on both the app and the web platform, but I understand that the app may not have the space to incorporate the time, so maybe just on the web platform if not possible on both.

I agree, a clock would be useful.

However, I use the updated time on a liquid market in my watchlist to see the time. Prices in S&P500, DJIA etc are updated every second so the last update time is good enough for me (web platform only though as updated time is not an option in the mobile app).

It's the SECONDS that is important, especially for exchange opening and closing time, and also when contract to be rolled over wrt interest charges by IG. Laptops and apps only shows HOURS and MINUTES. IG please consider inserting this feature on both platform and apps. Thank you Sirs.

IG would test it out, I'm sure (they are smart people). Thank you Sirs.

This was one of the first things i noticed that was missing from the IG platform. Coming from T212 (lots of downsides) however, it did have a really useful broker clock so you know what is happening and when they are closing which is not always exactly by your own system clock - this also included market hours for your current market. See attachments.

So yes, an integrated clock inluding seconds so you can see by the second whenyour market is going to open/close etc, along with some display for the market hours for where you are trading

 

So you can se clock in bottom left and market hours in bottom right, both really useful for me at least

Hi, was this ever resolved? I'm new to the platform but i find it really difficult scalp trading without a seconds clock.

Hi @ADZCAP,

I have forwarded the above feedback to the relevant department. It will be reviewed and implemented if possible. It is possible that it takes some time as the development may be working on high priority projects.

All the best - Arvin

Almost end of 2023 and no clock, your platform is awesome but no clock it's sad since 2020, go to see on tradingview to take good idea like 1M 5M 1H 4H D W etc etc .. not in the scrolling menu more easy to use and change graphic time useful when you want to see easy and fast movement in different time. 

Do you think we will have clock before and of decade ???

    • Copper Elliott Wave Analysis - buy the dip strategy is ideal Function - Counter-trend Mode - Corrective Structure - Zigzag Position -Blue wave a of black wave Y Direction - Blue waves b-c of black wave Y Since October 2023, Copper has gained over 8%. Meanwhile, the Elliott wave perspective is looking at this commodity to continue the giant corrective structure it started in March 2022. Copper is expected to resume a strong rally once the current minor dip is subdued by the bullish flow again. But the questions are, where can traders and investors look for opportunities and how strong can the rally from October 2023 go into the future? Let’s dive into our commodity Elliott wave analysis that covers Copper. On the daily time frame chart, from March 2022, when the commodity was trading for nearly $5, we could identify the decline to 3.145 (July 2022 - a 38% decline in just 4 months) as a corrective wave. That fall was wild! However, the bullish response has been corrective and has taken over 1.5 years. As a result, we are forecasting a double zigzag blue wave ‘W-X-Y’ from 5.043 top. Wave W ended at 3.145 and wave X is subdividing into red wave (W)-(X)-(Y). Wave (W) closed at 4.3575 and (X) at 4.52 and (Y) is ongoing. Wave (Y), on its own, seems to be subdividing into black wave W-X-Y. We seemed to have completed wave W and X but Y is in the early stage. Thus, with Elliott wave theory, we have identified the position of the current price in the large scope of the last 2 years' price framework. Let’s head to the H4 chart to see where and how we can find a position. On the H4 time frame chart, after wave X ended, the price advanced in a 5-wave rally. Good response! With the current decline coming out corrective, we will anticipate at least the blue wave  ‘a-b-c’ of Y above the 4.00 medium level. Our focus will now be on how blue wave ‘b’ ends. The further decline for red wave (a)-(b)-(c) of blue b could continue to the 3.72 minor level which is also close to the 70.7% retracement of blue wave ‘a’. The setup will be invalid at 3.65 i.e. price below wave X. In summary, our forecast supports the recovery of Copper to continue further upside. Therefore the current dip is expected to be corrective and stay above 3.65. Buying interest is expected to surge from there.  Technical Analyst : Sanmi Adeagbo
