IG requests traders’ opinion about Economic Calendar
The IG team is considering bringing the Economic Calendar into the dealing platform and improving certain functionalities.
Clients of online trading major IG Group Holdings plc (LON:IGG) are invited to voice their opinion about the Economic Calendar.
The IG team is looking at bringing the Economic Calendar into the dealing platform and improving certain functionalities such as alerts and automatic notifications. Now traders have a chance to have their say and help build out functions within the dealing platform.
In case you’d like to say what exactly you’d like to see in the calendar, you may submit your comments via the IG Community. For instance, you can say what functions you use on other websites.
Speaking of trading platform enhancements, let’s recall that shortly after enabling traders to add % Range to watchlists, IG has introduced a deal position preview functionality to the web trading platform.
The feature is automatically enabled on the new dealing platform. To disable it, traders have to right click on the graph and select Position Preview from the “show” dropdown.
When filling in a deal ticket, new visual features will appear on the graph. When the direction (buy or sell) is selected, a shaded area will appear above (if buying) or below (if selling) the current price. This area will display the price the market needs to touch to profit from the transaction. The shaded area will not start from the price the trader executed the trade at, as the market needs to move in trader’s favour by the size of the spread before being at break-even.
