Share Dealing Charts "Last Traded Volume"



Hello. I'm using the desktop based share dealing account. When I display a chart for any given stock, with the time interval set to Daily, and add Volume from the Technical tab, I get the typical volume bar chart at the bottom. When I use the pointer to hover over one of the bars I get the volume information displayed as "Last Traded Volume" with the volume figure.

But the volume figures provided seem very low compared to daily volume information for the same stock from other sources e.g. Investing.com. 

So is the "Last Traded Volume" exactly what it says i.e the volume of the last trade on that particular day? If so how do I get the total volume for the day and not just the last trade?

Many thanks for your help.

Hello @Caseynotes. Thanks for this reply. I'll refer to the post you quoted and continue there as I have some similar volume discrepancies.

@The_Alnchemist,  on another thread somewhere I also saw an IG reply that was saying that due to the mixed sources of data they used to collate volume that the final data point may be delayed and I've noticed this before, you may find the final volume profile has changed on Monday. Just checked the spread bet chart for Kier Group, see below.

Thanks for your help @Caseynotes. The volume for the 14-Jun on the IG platform did indeed go up this morning but there's still a mismatch in the volume profile for the two highest bars either end of the last 2 weeks. The volume figures provided on the IG platform and Investing.com (left & middle window) are quite different with those provided by IG much lower. Although not exactly the same the volume figures provided by Investing.com and londonstockexchange.com (Middle and right windows) are quite similar.

I'm not sure what the volume figures provided by IG are or where they come from.

    • 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.
