What is Signal Centre?

  • Alerts you to significant trends or patterns in the markets and highlights the potential opportunities developing

  • When a signal is available for an instrument in your watchlist, a light bulb icon will appear

How do signals work?

  • Direct from two third-party providers, Autochartist and PIA-First, signals provide you with ‘buy’ or ‘sell’ suggestions for selected markets
  • Autochartist’s advanced pattern-recognition technology and PIA-First’s experienced analysts monitor the markets on your behalf, giving you the best of both worlds in terms of technical analysis software and professional expertise

Each signal comes from one named provider and includes concise, actionable research, enabling you to make a quick and informed decision. A typical signal may include the provider’s confidence level.
