IG Markets Launches Autochartist Chart Pattern Recognition Tool


Following the trend of all brokers offering the Autochartist tool to their clients, IG Markets is doing the same.

In June 2009 GFT added Autochartist, in September 2009 it was eToro and in November 2009 it was Alpari UK. Something is working right at Autochartist as they seem to sign deals with many of the leading brokers.

Autochartist also lists CMS Forex, FXDD, Forex Club, Citi and InterbankFX amongst its clients.

This is the PR:

CFD Trading company, IG Markets is pleased to launch Autochartist, a chart pattern recognition tool that monitors the markets on your behalf. One of the greatest features of the package is that it has a straightforward, user-friendly web interface and plain English instruction manual, making it easy for clients to recognise chart patterns.

Key Facts:

  • Autochartist is a chart pattern recognition tool that monitors the markets on your behalf
  • Autochartist automatically alerts you when emerging trends indicate potential CFD trading opportunities
  • IG Markets is the first CFD provider to offer this technology in Australia

Autochartist offers a powerful range of functionality which traders can customise to fit their needs. Clients can create personalised searches to identify 16 different types of chart pattern, or 4 types of Fibonacci pattern. The technology can be used to scan all CFD markets that IG Markets offers including indices, forex, shares, energies and metals.

Mr Tamas Szabo, Chief Executive Officer, IG Markets says “We are thrilled to be the first CFD provider in both Australia and New Zealand to offer this seamlessly integrated web-based chart pattern recognition tool. Our evidence suggests that CFD and forex traders are particularly keen adopters of charting analysis, and this tool should be of great benefit to them. Autochartist is available to all IG Markets clients, free of charge, on our award-winning PureDeal platform.”

“One of the greatest features of the package is that it has a straightforward, user-friendly web interface and plain English instruction manual, making it easy for clients to recognise chart patterns and use them to guide their CFD and forex trading decisions, even if technical analysis is unfamiliar to them. The technology can also alert you when emerging trends indicate potential trading opportunities in your selected CFD or forex markets, hence providing the benefit of freeing clients from the time-consuming process of scrutinising and analysing charts.”

With the help of Autochartist, clients can:

  • Anticipate and react to the elements of trend, support and resistance patterns
  • Use emerging patterns to take a proactive approach to dealing
  • Identify the best pattern alerts using Quality Indicators
  • Capitalise on indecision and confusion in the markets by interpreting non-trending patterns.

“IG Markets is committed to offering clients the very best trading tools to help them with their CFD and forex trading, consistently offering great value through market-leading software and quality pricing. We are thrilled to be able to launch this exciting new feature,” Mr Szabo said.
