    IG MT4 and trading 5 day week charts.

    Hi @Hiren, as with any MT4 you are stuck with the timeline set by the broker, the alternatives are to switch to the Prorealtime platform which does allow switching to US time zone and so cuts out the UK 2 hour Sunday candle as does the web based TradingView platform which you could use for charting while using the IG MT4 for dealing. Sounds like you might be on the Nial Fuller course, not too many others see it as much of a problem, you might lose some patterns compared to the 5 day chart but also gain others.

    On the daily charts and Nikkei sets the pace continuing on the upward leg so looking for Dow to follow and Dax to tackle resistance at 11048. Ftse has got itself up over the 6850 resistance level and will attempt to use as support for a push higher. ECB rate decision 12:45 and another boring Draghi presser at 1:30.

    Yah! can now post twitter vid content not just youtube stuff (probably could for ages I just never noticed), just in time for this speeded up graphic of the Daily Treasury Yield Curve Rate change 1990 - 2018.

    Actually now you mention it where is the 'report post' tab? I know there used to be one but can't see it now, I can see the 'share this post' icon tab top right corner but there is nothing next to it.

    China to cut US car tariffs from 40% to 15%- EMEA Brief 12 Dec

    Tory leadership contest is on and it's today, MP polling starts at 6 pm, result expected around 9 pm. Neither Ftse or GBP seem to care, as yet.

    Nikkei continuing the rally overnight, Dax and Ftse looking to clear immediate resistance while Dow hoping for a run up to 24805.

    ESMA Fail

    ESMA admits more retail traders lost money after the introduction of the leverage cap than before, so the exact opposite of the primary intended effect. But not to worry, we're fine says ESMA. https://www.leaprate.com/forex/regulations/esma-admits-more-retail-cfd-traders-lost-money-after-leverage-cap/

    Platform freeze 10/12/18

    Hi @Sunny Days, which platform and about what time? Didn't notice anything on mt4.

    Potential 'Long' Gold Trade

    Best of luck @TrendFollower

    Potential 'Long' Gold Trade

    The 1243 was the resistance level to beat since mid October and having finally got through looked to retest that level yesterday and looks to be using that level for support today. Daily chart;
  12. That's ok @RWw, took a bit of figuring out but we got there in the end, I too went down to that 1 hour and saw how that outsized Wed 23:00 candle was going to affect the day candle a different time start between the two platforms seemed the only explanation.

    Big V reversal in the Dow yesterday positions Dow and Dax to challenge the recent highs today while Ftse and Nikkei left looking a bit confused. 1 hour charts;
  14. OK, so if the discrepancy is on mid week bars as well it must be due to the time zone difference. MT4 set to UK time while the web platform is set to Western Euro zone. The MT4 daily bars are opening 00:00 UK (01:00 Euro). Maybe @JamesIG, can check and look to get the MT4 reset to match the web platform.

    Market impact

    Wondering why can't find IG Group Holdings PLC on the platform? Interesting chart though >
  16. Interesting background story on the Arrest of the Huawei CFO (daughter of the founder) and possible future implications. Huawei may have broken not only US sanctions but UN sanctions as well and being dependant on 92 core suppliers 33 of which are US companies any sanctions placed on Huawei as a result could bring down one of China's leading international companies. https://www.scmp.com/week-asia/opinion/article/2176891/dont-ask-why-us-acted-against-chinas-huawei-ask-why-now

    Delete item from watchlist

    Hi @joneskl, if you are meaning the web based platform you can't delete from any of the IG Watchlists but you can from any watchlists you have created yourself.
  18. Hi @Hematite, might be worth resetting the demo server by clicking on 'Open an Account' from the 'File' tab. see pic below. If demo is greyed out should reset automatically or click on demo to refresh ping.
  19. Hi @RWw, ok, so to clarify, in your IG cfd web based platform chart pic above all the Sunday bars are missing, same in your IC Markets mt4 but not in the IG mt4 (first post). So the difference is presumably related to being on European time zone where IG web based platform and IC Markets mt4 leave out the Sunday bar but the IG mt4 platform does not. The pic below is from my cfd web platform (demo) UK time zone that have the Sunday bars included.

    Dow poised at monthly chart support level so the others will be watching carefully what happens next, minimal movement on Sunday. Dax retesting the Friday close and low on the European open.
  21. Hi @h7, am on both web platform and mt4 and not experiencing any problems thus far.
  22. Hi @RWw, what you are highlighting is the difference between demo and live and weekend. Demo is not a mirror of live, it has it's own separate feed. Demo is a test bed for technicians that brokers allow clients to use to practice on, weekend is a derivative add on incorporating futures pricing and so not comparable to live or demo. Below are the screen shots for the same period for the web based platform live and mt4 live, and they are identical.

    Do Fib levels work? - yes - I mean no. Like all other technical analysis they work fine except for all the times they don't. Of course you can help the odds by adding some extra non Fibonacci numbers like 50 or 87. Or you could always add another level of probability for confluence, say a coin flip for example, so if in doubt flip a coin whereby heads = yes and tails = no. It really all comes down to how many others are looking at the same thing as you, will there be enough to turn a prediction into a self fulfilling prophecy? But there is another way. I like to sail and know that I need to be constantly aware of the ever changing force of the wind. Too much and the boat gets knocked down, too little and you are becalmed, so I make sure I'am always ready for either. I know that change can and will happen at any time so if wind dies down I add more sail, if it picks up I furl some away, simple. Can I predict when these changes are going to occur? - not really, I could take a guess but that's not very efficient. Certainly it may be advantageous to have an idea when/where there might be an increased chance of change but best just to be ready and react when needed, it's a far more efficient and less stressful way to get to where you are going.

    Order Rejected

    Hi @daveyboyjock, not sure which market or platform or account type you are referring to but if you only got a partial fill on the first order and the second was rejected and if this was on the unleverged shares platform it may be simply that there were none more available at that time.
