Audible notification for stops hit (suggestion #2)


Recommended Posts

The web platform generates an audible notification when positions are opened by the system but not for positions closed. I've never seen a platform behave that way. You have no way of knowing if a stop is hit unless you happen to be looking at the notification panel. It's a nuisance to be constantly checking when you are trying to get on with other things. 

Also, it would be helpful if the sounds for opening and closing of positions were different.

Hi Mondrian, just in case you don't know. There are audio notifications for entries and stops in Prorealtime. Female or Male default voices say stuff like "Buy at market executed" for stops/targets it says "Sell/Buy Limit executed, exit with {Gains/Loss}". You can also use your own audio files.

Hope this helps.

PS: This is a great idea and would be cool to see it implemented in the web platform.

Thanks, I've been trialing PRT. Like it but the lack of tick volume on FX could be a problem.

These advanced features are also available in TradingView and rather than try to add them to their own web platform the best idea would be for IG to allow the use of TradingView to trade with IG.  (Exposing APIs and other such fancy things 🤓 )

    • This is not an acceptable explanation for me unfortunately, I am fully aware of the need to move spreads and I had accounted for that. Especially at the open of a market, but your spread was totally unreasonable the spread on DEC contracts is already at 130pip standard, to increase it to 400pips and hold it there even after 5 mins of trading. As my execution was a 09:06 the main market volatility had already been accounted for.   So disappointing after 6years being a customer and on a profitable trade as well: 
    • Dear @MB1470, Thank you for your post. Please note that dealing spreads on shares are subject to variation, especially in volatile market conditions or other unusual circumstances.  Market spreads can widen significantly, particularly at the beginning and end of the trading day, and minimum spreads may exist. Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • This morning at the market open on NOVO DEC contracts. On Spread Bet.    the spread moved from 138pips to close to 400 pips? How can this be reasonable the candle is only displayed on a 15-2min time period not on smaller periods. At market open 09:00 ????? How is this even remotely reasonable?
