PRT charts not being corrected



For the past two months or thereabouts I have been reporting flawed charts using the email facility in the ProRealtime software. Only one of the many charts that I have reported has been corrected. Listed below is just a fraction of the charts I have reported. You will see that some have been reported twice but to no avail!


UK Stocks 


3rd April: CHG


27th May: RSW 

13th June: RSW

14th June: JLT, FEV

22nd June: CRDA


US Stocks


8th May: CBOE

9th May: MRCY

15th May: ZION

20th May: CTSH

30th May: CBOE


12th June: AXP

13th June: CAT


20th June: PG

23rd June: CBPO


This is the bunch of US stocks I reported yesterday i.e. 24th June: ARMK, ARW, BLL, FNF, FBHS, PAC, HAS, IPGP, MCD, MHK, NEE, PKG, SSNC, STE, TRU, WCG, YUM


My focus is on the US and UK markets, I estimate the percentage of stocks with charts with flawed data is at least in double digits. Far beyond the "one or two that escape the net" as has been previously postulated or as you have articulated " Due to the large number of instruments we offer we sometimes do miss some errors on charts." I understand that the same flawed data powers the new IG charts too! On that basis, I find it incredulous, almost bizarre, even surreal that so much work is going into developing the new charts when IG does not have a reliable data feed!! It seems very much like the cart is being put before the horse. In the context of any developments to the charts where indicators are a derivative of price (are there any that are not?) the old IT adage is very appropriate, "garbage in, garbage out" 


Before I finished this post I thought I would go through the Dow Jones Industrial Index or Wall Street in IG speak to see how many defected charts would be revealed. The following is the result of that exercise:




More than half, i.e. 16 charts out of 30

The DFB chart of Mitie(MTO.LSE) is showing a long wick to the downside today on the one minute candle. The candle low is showing a misleading 272.5, whereas on the LSE's chart the candle is much different in form and is showing a low of 287.1




The spread on the current DFB is just under two points.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
