Upgrade to 10.3 PRT

Question

Alternatively "downgrade" to PRT 10.1, which is far superior to 10.2.  Let's hope that the next version is not as "unnecessary" as the current one.

The problem with ProRealTime seems to be that it is web-based.  There is no need for that approach.  Check out Sierra Chart.  Simple, economical, versatile....  It is simply incomprehensible why anyone with a business to run (IG for example) would ignore what Sierra Chart offers.  I need to say here that I have no interest in Sierra Chart beyond the fact that I have used it and that I wish IG would make it available, either in conjunction with or in place of, PRT.

Hi all

 

I just wanted to provide an update on this. We're aiming to begin the rollout of 10.3 early next year. We know how much anticipation there is around this update, so we're working hard to make sure we can bring it to you as soon as possible. We're working with IT-Finance to make sure this update also includes some of the features you have asked for.

 

When it's launched, we'll first add it to demo accounts before enabling it on live accounts, just to make sure everything works as expected.

 

I'll keep you updated here when we have a clearer date. To be notified via email of updates right away, subscribe to this topic.

Hi all

 

Just to update you on the progress of the 10.3 rollout. We're pleased to say the rollout to demo accounts has almost completed. If you have a demo account, you can access the PRT 10.3 right now.

 

We're bringing it soon to your live account too. We're aiming to have this switched on by late Feb, early March. This could still change depending on feedback and testing, but we're working hard to bring this to you as soon as possible.

 

If you have any feedback on 10.3 in your demo account, let me know here.

Hi TimP

 

Why the change of the orderbox in "associate order to alert" window?

 

In the first beta version there was options for stop/trailing stop and target (the trailing stop didn`t work properly i think?)

https://www.prorealtime.com/en/images/features/features_10_3/popup-features-10-3-2_c1476112324c.png

 

but now the stop and target has disappeared and its looks like the 10.2 version

 

 when the live version is here i hope we can get the version with stops and target?

(and if possibly to choose between stop/ trailing stop/ guaranteed stop)

 

This associate order to alert is a useful thing when leaving the computer for a while but whitout stops its a risky thing

Hi all,

 

I am pleased to announce that 10.3 has been released to all countries with an overwhelming amount of positive reponses. Naturally we want to keep on going from strength to strength and so with that in mind please do continue to share your thoughts on what we have and ideas of what we could do.

 

Many of the new features have been based on your feedback and those that did not get added have already been passed on for consideration in the next version.

 

Thanks again for all your support and as always keep those ideas coming!

Prorealtime is a great tool and one reason why i trade with IG

 

For improvements i have two suggestions

 

1) More data to backtest on (same as in premium version) so we can use the coming walk forward optimization better,

its a bit annoying to have to open a new account through prt just for this

 

2) Guaranteed stop would also be useful (at least for trading manually with prt)

 

 

3) yes i have a third also, same minimum lot size as in metatrader to make it easier to use strategies with variable lot size when auto trading

to elaborate on the 3 suggestion (automated trading)

 

what i mean is instead of buying say 1 lot at one level it would be possible to average up and down and add to a position with the same risk

 

and use strategies like this one without risking to much

https://www.prorealcode.com/topic/pathfinder-swing-ts/

 

and it would be easier to try new strategies on a live account instead of demo

Is anyone else experiencing problems with the time zone of PRT? Previously, if I didn't want trades to be placed on Monday before 10am, it worked. These days, the time zone seems misaligned.

Hi   Not sure if this relates to your problem but remember US went onto summer time last week while GB doesn't switch till the end of this month hence the US and GB markets are an hour out of sinc till GB clocks go forward.

    • 1) It would be really helpful to be able to change a stop loss from normal to guaranteed stop in the online trading platform. Currently we can only do that on the mobile app which is ridiculous because the online trading platform should be having more features than the mobile app. 2) Allow us to set limit (take profit) for partial position size. Example if I buy 5 contracts of AUD/USD at 0.7150. I would like the option to be able to set take profit for 3 contracts at 0.7170 and 2 contracts at 0.7190.   
    • Hi Folks, The platform advertises that you need to place three or more trades in the previous month to avail of the free trading on US stocks (no $15 commission) for the subsequent month. However, even with that commission fee gone you're going to have to pay IG for the currency conversion each time. You're going back and forth between buying and selling, GBP to USD to GBP ...this will equate to a lot of money. So, you've realised the above and to avoid this really ridiculous and expensive merry-go-round you turn on multi-currency feature, right? In your head you think:   "I want to exclusively trade US stocks, I've waited one month (you'd have rathered to just pay IG and not need to wait), made more than three trades on that currency merry-go-round, I am happy to pay the reasonable quarterly fee to IG from here on in and keep the account as USD while availing of their most advertised feature, the commission free trading on US stock market". The new month arrives and you can have a great time trading on the US stock market with your dollar that doesn't keep eating away at any trade profits with each buy and sell. However, the next month arrives and menacing commission fee is back! But you traded at least three times last month, what gives? Ah! But you used the multicurrency feature, and this means on the subsequent month you will not be eligible for commission free trading. You're back to square one. Your choice is to either pay IG the fee for every conversion in every trade or prevent this and keep the respective currency but also you must pay IG a commission.    Anyone else experience this? I'm hoping I'm completely wrong, but contacting the helpdesk seems to confirm this ...
    • IG need to provide a stock screener, live scanner for volume/price movement, pre-market data,  and rapid execution for private traders and rebate fees for trading view as they do for PRT, with traders who trade frequently. One can be ambitious and ask IG to provide a free platform like thinkorswim as Ameritrade does with current news stream  - again a free rebate for access to Benziga or similar with rebates linked to the amount of trades.  The money spent on IG TV perhaps can be spent somewhere else towards provision of some free resources to private traders/investors.  The IG tv is a serious issue - do IG really think that IG TV add any value?  Access to financial publications/sites might be a better thing.  The effort of IG to provide its own academy, advice etc is and always will probably a poor quality duplication.  Please learn/borrow from American brokers and now that their commission charges are Zero.  PRT - Can that be downloadable.  The web based form just slows everything down and very clunky and the charts are not elegant at all.  They have a community and they do develop or help develop some strategies. We do not want to lose them. But a live screener /scanner please.  I just realised that I do not even know if IF IT team even reads these comments or prioritise any of the suggestions. Please get rid of your IG TV investment, it is very annoying. And yes VWAP/anchored VWAP please on the charts. Give the private investors some of the rebates too. Is Charlotte, finally providing our redemption by talking these to the right eyes and ears! Overall, IG really is not that bad given others at least for UK investors. Perhaps just a less spread and less of that dreaded, sudden declaration that this stock is only for close and you can not open new position. I think that and the liquidity  excuse is lame unless IG is beholden to a particular market maker or IG somehow gets it in a very large position by itself.
