Hi everyone


A new feature I really like in the platform is that your tickets and charts are saved.  This is really useful if you want to have a deal ticket prepared ready for a good entry exit point.


Similarly this applies with charts.  Chart settings are saved and your charts are saved in the chart tab.


If you want to view your tickets and or charts then you need only click on the tab and you can select an individual ticket or open them all.


I like to have tickets for particular markets open to guage market depth and this is a really easy and quick way of doing this.

Hi all


Probably old hat by now, but the "tear off" (open in new window) option on Charts is a favorite of mine because I drag it to another screen while examining data and deal tickets on the platform.


I also find the "Autochartist" and "Trading Central" in "TOOLS" very helpful in chart pattern recognition and analysis respectively.


My personal favorite is the super fast "binary" SPRINT Markets, I am a little addicted to it by now....


Happy days

I know it sounds old fashioned but I really like the fundamental news I get when utilising the Economic Calander.

I especially appreciate the Dividend Payments section around reporting time. (like right now) as well as the Company Earnings details.


Thanks IG.

I also particularly like the signal centre alerts.  I like that you get the grey lightbulb to indicate that a particular signal is forming and then you get the yellow light bulb when it is time to trade.  This makes it visually very easy to identify trading opportunities.


When you click into the signal alert, you are taken straight to the signal centre where you can view the signal and also deal straight onto the market.  Makes things very quick and very simple.

If you could both send me a private message letting me know if you would like the gift voucher or would prefer the option to make a donation to Unicef.


Thanks all for taking part, and keep an eye out for any new competitions!

    • 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.
