PIA chart and autochartist



hi can someone help with the timestamp on those charts ,.when they are published because the on the signal screen they show up after the trade is already made and levels seems to be already accomplished,  so whats the point of getting signal after the fact or half way thru the fact.. i understand its a moving target but the published time stamp and uploaded time is too far apart,

Hi, are you referring to the community discussion surrounding the PIA posts, or the signals given on the IG Dealing platform as shown below? The ones in the platform have a shorter time frame so they're posted on IG as and when they are published by the third party providers, whilst the discussion points posted on Community are of longer time frames (for example weekly and monthly) and therefore aren't as necessary to push to the minute. These posts are also manually written so it takes a little longer to post.


The below, for example, was taken at 11.16, 6 minutes after the time stamp publish date.

Hi James 


Could you please explain  why the signal entry price on charts is 15525  at 06.23.The published time is 0.623.

Entry level is 15485.


There is a discrepancy of 40 pips .This a fraudulent , deceitful act , unless you can provide more information.Here are the charts with evidence.I may be wrong.


This is really pathetic and sick.

Hi all. As with all things, if you do not understand something or would like further information of how a particular product works, please feel free to ask. Please note the following:


  • These are passive limit orders to open and have not been triggered at the time they are posted. As you stated, these would not be beneficial if they were simply posted in hindsight. 

Using the below (as shown on the IG platform) this particular trade went through the following actions.


  • Trade idea was posted at 06.23am - it explicitly states that "we look to buy" which is a forward looking statement. 
  • The trade isn't triggered until 08.10 when the market moved to the previously specified level.
  • 11.50 and the trade was closed out basis the pre-defined stop level. 

Any question, please ask.

IG, our clients and our principal firm at the time received every trade idea (including medium term) via email and so all of our calls can be verified.


During Q3 2017, we chose not to produce any medium term ideas so as we could improve our medium term model.


We are now directly regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and so are now also answerable directly to our regulator.

    • 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.
