It only displays the IG logo in the center of the screen but won't open the trading platform when I click on "open platform".

not sure what's happening there. The web based platform opened for me earlier this morning and again just now with no problems.

Hi I AGREE -  it does not open on new trading platform - but before selecting the IG open and look at old platform you can trade - looks like there is a problem there - as IG logo is not correct IMHO. 🙂 Tried calling tech support but no answer at present.

I have an open trade running and I can't open trading platform. The new platform won't launch. Old platform wants me to verify my information and takes me around nowhere. I tried to launch prorealtime but it won't launch either. I don't know what to do.

I can verify this by my account on Hargreaves Lansdown

V surprised not reported by anyone else.

Mobile now working for me too. I also managed to launch prorealtime but it won't show my open trades. Mobile does. I wonder why the trading platform on website isn't working though.

Hi, still no problem for me, take a look at some problem solving ideas on this page (for new platform about half way down)

https://www.ig.com/uk/help-and-support/charts/ig-charts/why-are-my-ig-charts-not-working?ref=FlashPDLeverage

Thanks, it helped. Looks like I have a Chrome problem and not an IG one as the new platform worked just fine on firefox just now. It's the chrome that needs fixing, thanks a lot.

https://deal.ig.com/wtp/ still won't open for me. - FIX WITH MICROSOFT EDGE USE

I got to speak to helpdesk for 45 mins yesterday 

 and IT IS a chrome issue - they will fix it later but - as now using Microsoft Edge with FULL capacity - suggest to use this as has excellent reviews as a substitute for chrome - may well do myself.

Regards

David

what does 'full capacity' mean, someone told me there was an 'Edge Chromium' but when I looked on the MS web site it said I already had Edge but it didn't seem any faster to me playing around for a day?

It's got the same underlying engine as Chrome and yet strangely it doesn't perform as well for me as Chrome does.  Firefox is worst of all (possibly because it blocks all the cr@p that wants to track your every movement)

Hi briefly trying Edge out out and looked ok - but only to solve my immediate problem - have Edge on one screen and Chrome on the second and works fine - will have to look at the set up to fix of chrome going forward

I haven't had any problems using Chrome.

Hi,

 

It is something to do with my settings in Chrome causing the problem - will fix later - have a work around at present by using Microsoft Edge (new version from 2020 which IS superior to old one supposedly)

I had the same IG logo screen and problem too.

But works fine if I use Edge. 

I noticed the problem with Chrome came soon after I rejected a strong recommendation by Microsoft to adopt Edge as the default web browser. Maybe Microsoft has somehow interfered with the Chrome but I have no proof to back it up.

Same here on Wednesday 8th July. The problem is still unresolved. I tried clearing the cache - did not solve.

Hi @David30b @dmedin @Caseynotes,

We found that it was a problem for all users who have BitDefender installed, it creates extensions in certain browsers such as Chrome, Firefox and Safari which then blocks the New Web Trading Platform from loading up. The easiest way to get around it when using chrome is to type chrome://extensions/ in the URL field, then disable the BitDefender extensions. 

Our developers are working on a permanent solution as it may happen after every BitDefender update. 

Hope that helps.

Anton

    • GBP/USD and EUR/USD come off their recent highs while EUR/GBP consolidates Outlook on EUR/USD, EUR/GBP and GBP/USD as they consolidate post European PMI data.    Axel Rudolph | Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Thursday 06 October 2022  EUR/USD consolidates below parity EUR/USD’s near 5% rally from its $0.9536 fresh 20-year September low faltered just below parity amid weaker than expected Eurozone purchasing managers index (PMI) data which continues to point towards a possible recession. The cross thus slid back to its two-week support line and may soon revisit the $0.9855 late September high. Further down minor support can be found around the $0.98 mark and also at the 3 October low at $0.9753. In case of the minor support line holding, parity may be revisited. Slightly above it the 55-day simple moving average (SMA) and the February-to-October downtrend line can be spotted at $1.0025 to $1.0038 and are likely to cap the upside this week. Source: IT-Finance.com EUR/GBP consolidates post weak Eurozone PMI data EUR/GBP has been trading in a less volatile fashion than last week when it shot up to its £0.9283 two-year high on the back of the UK’s mini budget which introduced the biggest tax cuts in 50 years. Following the government’s partial U-turn on Monday, EUR/GBP slid to this week’s low at £0.8649 before consolidating amid weak Eurozone PMI data and while awaiting UK construction PMI data. Further sideways trading seems to be at hand with minor resistance sitting at the £0.8787 mid-September high. If overcome, the 26 and 28 September lows at £0.8853 would be next in line. Below the recent low at £0.8649 lies the mid-September low at £0.8626 and the 55-day SMA and early September low at £0.8587 to £0.8567. Source: IT-Finance.com GBP/USD consolidates below this week’s high made close to $1.15 GBP/USD’s 11% rally from its all-time low at $1.035 following the UK governments largest, by some seen as unfunded, tax cuts in 50 years, seems to have stalled marginally below the $1.15 mark. Monday morning’s U-turn on the abolishment of the UK higher earners 45p tax rate cuts, only saving of around £2 billion out of a £45 billion fiscal loosening programme, and Wednesday’s decision by the Chancellor of the Exchequer Kwasi Kwarteng to freeze tax thresholds, which in three years’ time will deliver an extra £41 billion amid high inflation and rising wages, have not helped the pound which has so far slid back to $1.1228. GBP/USD now trades below minor technical resistance seen between the 7 and 16 September lows at $1.1351 to $1.1406 while immediate support below $1.1228 can be found along the two-week support line at $1.1178.
