Off quotes


MW86

Question

Tried to adjust my stop loss on my position in the FTSE this evening via the MT4 app and desktop dashboard and every time I try too I receive a message “off quotes”. 
 

I have a decent internet connection (100mbps) at the time of writing this, and the MT4 terminal in the bottom right hand corner shows 45769/67KB. 
 

what’s going on? Is anyone else having issues?

I've been attempting to open new positions for AUD/USD for the last 30 minutes and has been resulting in the same issue. Jumped on the computer and same thing. 

Anyone know how to fix this?

Same problem with my MT4 account on the SP500. Tried modify, tried close, all off quotes. Going on for the past hour. Got an email from 'admin' saying they are working on closing the order.

Can anyone give me any assistance with this please? :)

Hi, the numbers in your connection box  (45769/67kb) are showing an awful large number of dropouts (67), my mt4 platform has been running constant for near 12 hours today and I have 12. You should hear a ding dong sound alarm on dropout and reconnection and there is usually only a second or 2 between them.

The 'off quotes' notice would also point to a problem with connection to the server, if happens again try a click on the connection box and click rescan and select a new data centre. If persists may need to email tech at the IG helpdesk.

Hey! Thank you for your response :)

The number 67 sounds a lot but my MT4 platform has been running 24 hours a day for the last 20 days straight on an Azure VPS. Is that number still quite high for that time period?


I could still place new trades last night, but any existing trades I wished to edit in any way would display the Off Quotes error. I was able to edit them at around 2am this morning, but at the time it was very frustrating.

Ok that’s great, next time it happens I’ll be sure to try what you’ve mentioned.

ah no, probably not that high for 20 days 24 hour a day.

if you were still placing other trades then the server should be ok, you weren't trying to place stops too close to current or such like? note the min distance is variable depending on current market volatility

when you say 'desktop dashboard' is that for the Trade terminal rather than the Mini terminal?

Yes sorry, the main trade terminal used on a Mac or PC. 
 

Yeah I thought that might have been a reason, but it didn’t matter what I tried it just kept giving me that error. 
 

Thanks for your help with this and if it happens again I’ll try what you’ve suggested. If it fails again I’ll contact IG.

    • The new month kicked off with several stock market indices hitting record highs on Thursday. Japan's Nikkei Average, the S&P 500, and the Nasdaq all closed at fresh record peaks. The gains were buoyed by tech stocks like NVIDIA and Advanced Micro Devices. Stock markets are in an upbeat mood after US inflation figures came in line with expectations on Thursday. This helped shape forecasts for the timing of future Fed interest rate cuts. It extended the ongoing global equity rally and also pushed Treasury yields lower. The DAX also reached a new all-time high on Thursday. Europe opens today waiting for inflation data that should indicate inflation is moving back toward the 2% target. This comes after data showed inflation dropping in countries like Germany, France and Spain thanks to lower energy and food prices. The ECB has maintained record-high interest rates since September. Also on the calendar today is the US ISM manufacturing PMI.   
    • Cocoa Elliott Wave Analysis - 1 March 24 Function - Trend Mode - Impulsive Structure - Impulse Wave Position - Blue wave ‘iv’ unfolds Direction - Blue wave ‘iv’ in progress Cocoa has been a standout performer in the commodity market over the past two years, exhibiting a robust upward trend since September 2022. During this period, Cocoa prices have surged by an impressive 170%, following a discernible impulse wave pattern. Examining the daily chart, it is evident that the current rally, which commenced around the 2200 mark, is approaching its final stages. The completion of black wave 5 marked the conclusion of blue sub-wave iii at 6500. The recent downward movement indicates the emergence of blue sub-wave iv. Based on projections, blue sub-wave iv of 5 is anticipated to progress towards the significant level of 8000. A closer inspection of the sub-waves within blue wave iv reveals a potential three-wave decline, as depicted on the H4 chart. This decline from 6500 is forecasted to retrace towards the Fibonacci levels of 5489-5174. Additionally, the critical trading level of 5000 serves as another pivotal area to monitor for potential support should the ongoing dip breach the aforementioned Fibonacci zone. However, it's essential to note that the development of the wave 5 impulse pattern would be invalidated if prices were to fall below 4354. In summary, adopting a strategy of buying into the dip appears to be the most prudent approach for traders interested in Cocoa. The focus will be on purchasing opportunities towards the end of blue wave iv of 5, particularly if there's a bullish reaction observed at the identified price support levels. This analysis underscores the potential opportunities within Cocoa's current price movement and provides a framework for traders to navigate the market effectively. By incorporating Elliott Wave principles, traders can better understand the underlying market dynamics and make informed decisions to capitalize on future price movements in Cocoa.
