I actually use sentiment from one of the algos.

So, it is a problem for me. Bigger than it seems and unfortunately as you said, because it is indicative it shouldn't be used to make any decision. 

It's a problem for me also. IG just need to ensure the numbers are consistent, I don't know which number to believe as the API shows a different number to some of their webpages.

Yeah just because a broker slaps the word 'indicative' on their data gives them a free pass to screw over their retail clients.

That's exactly how it works.

yes, the API shows different numbers. Until one of the sides reaches 80% I don't normally do anything, below that it can change quickly. You can blame the broker but you can't prove it. If we compare it with other sites, is IG's data wrong or the other site's data wrong? How can you actually prove it?

We are on moving sands.

I have just been looking at two pages on the IG site and they show different client sentiment numbers for AUDUSD:
