Thanks for your reply. I didn't get any email with the password, I was just using my existing password. Is there any way to reset the MT4 password through the website?

the 2 emails might be a day apart, if you need to reset the password for your live account it can only be done via email (the same email account IG has on record for your account).

IG's mt4 platform account login  has 5 digits for the live account and 6 digits for demo.

I got a 6 digit number for my live account & the server address in the email of: mt4.ig.com:443

I have tried that & the IG-LIVE in the pull down menu but to no avail.

6 digits should be for demo unless they have changed it just recently.

mt4 > File > Open an account > highlight account type (demo or live) and click next

Hi, the problem is the lack of connection so can't receive IG data. Try clicking on the connection box and rescan servers, if no luck you will need to email the helpdesk.

Is it a new account, IG had similar problems a short while ago.

Many thanks  Casenotes, Now my live account can connect.  But still there are two problems, As shown below: (1) no chart , (2) only live account, no demo account.  image.png.d83d3b5a8d20d1a7156fff93fe44b6f9.png

Hi, the charts should re-start live with a close and restart mt4 or just close the default charts and click add a chart, if you want more markets just right click on marketwatch and click 'show all'.

Not sure why the demo feed is not coming up, not seen that problem before, try rescan servers but you might have to download metaquotes mt4 for demo and use IG for live. You don't need to fund the account until you actually want to place trades.

ps @CharlotteIG can you please remove the pic in the post above with the live account number.

    • In the news; - oh dear never mind, it's all good data;  'A Turkish Prof, Zafer Kurugöl has said on TV that they have "accidentally" vaccinated babies with covid vax (adult dosage) and will publish the results (of their accidental experiment). He was also member of the Scientific Committee at Pfizer's Scientific Research Competition.' Professore Notte Botta @note_bot_ Pfizer’in Bilimsel Araştırmaya ve Genç Araştırmacılara Desteği Devam Ediyor | Pfizer Türkiye     'Newly reported deaths in Hawaii have risen 1,740% in the past two months despite one of the longest mask mandates in the world & overwhelming compliance…so I have to ask once again why Ron DeSantis did not mandate double masking & spend more time promoting vaccinations there.'  IM @ianmSC         Cases in South Korea have been at record high levels for nearly 3 months now despite 99% mask compliance, mask mandates and fines for non-compliance, so it’s always nice to hear politicians and experts keep pushing more mask mandates & forcing masks on 2 year olds.  IM @ianmSC   .
    • Ei Robsy, unfortunately nothing apart from the comment above. you? any more luck?
    • yes, and as everywhere else did nothing but harm;     'Type 2 diabetes in children appears to have doubled during the C-19 pandemic, data from two new US studies suggest, with the lead investigator of one saying she was "surprised by the staggering increase in cases of type 2 diabetes .. severity of presentation."
