MT4 Live Data Feeds


GorillaForSale

Question

Is there are known issue with the MT4 data feeds recently?  Multiple times the feed has just been freezing... just today, 1 minute before the US open I have an EIGHT MINUTE gap in data.  I have tried switching to alternative data centers to no avail... is this a known issue and is it being dealt with?

can't see any gaps on my  feed.  There has been 2 occasions lately of the live feed being interrupted, Monday at 16:30 for 10 minutes and Tuesday at 16:30 for 5 minutes but haven't seen anything today. The service is usually very good, can't remember the last time there was a problem

Once the data feed reestablishes itself the historical data is filled in, obviously it's most noticeable if you are trading the lowest timeframes where, like just now, at 14:29 I am watching the S&P500 and get 8 straight minutes of no data during the open.

My own connection is fine, I even opened the IG web platform and could see the price updates, but MT4's data feed was dead.

I have seen this happen multiple times this week alone, just wanted to know if this is something that IG knows about and whether is being investigated?

ok that's odd, I see the gap on the time scale of the S&P but there was no connection drop out sound warning and the gaps on the previous days where actual gaps on the chart itself.

Yes! I experienced this approximately 35 minutes ago where MT4 was completely frozen. The platform froze as I tried to close my Sell Positions right before the AUD/USD spike. This resulted in a $174.87 AUD Loss. Have been on hold with IG for over 30 minutes now seeking a refund.

    • Mystiko Network like competitors like Omni are promoting interoperability and scalability in the crypto landscape. However, Mystiko is standing out with seamless compatibility with various L1 and L2 blockchains which they have extended to cross-chain bridges, wallets, DEXs, and other dApps. By eliminating blockchain barriers, Mystiko Network allows users to transfer assets and interact with various dApps more easily. This focus on interoperability goes hand-in-hand with scalability. Plus, their ZK SDK allows developers to build secure and private dApps while reducing costs and simplifying cross-chain transactions. It has successfully raised $29.25 million and have forge backing from industry giants like Samsung Next, Coinlist, Hashkey Capital etc... emphasizes it potential and gives it a firm foothold in the interoperability niche. Mystiko is about to hit another milestone as their token XZK is about to be listed on a Tier1 CEX like Bitget further exposing it to investors! Overall, they are ticking the right boxes and I believe they are a project to watch!
