Tear off Charts Lost - Flash Issue


Thinker

Question

I found this morning when I logged on to the "old" platform of IG that the ability to have "tearoff charts" has been completely lost.  On 12 January 2021 when flash stopped operating I found that the charts in the "market data" window also stopped operating but I got around this by using the "tear off charts".

 

When I rang IG technical and platform help it was clear that the chap did not know what flash was or that it had reached end of use and was barred from operating (which I found utterly extraordinary given that the whole world is unable to use flash and it was a flash based program).  When he checked with the technical department and then when he got back to me he was somewhat unclear in his response but in the end I gathered that due to some error on the weekend platform maintenance this wasn't operating at the moment.  I don't think that this is good enough.  This sort of basic things should not occur.

 

In addition, the normal charts within the platform window are clearly also not operating properly as if you scroll up or down within them which would normally extend or reduce the time.,  The entire platform window moves up and down.  It is quite frankly, a mess. 

 

If you do try to open a tearoff chart you get the message "Sorry! Flash Player is not currently installed. To display IG charts, you need at least Flash Player version 11.2.0".  Of course as I have said above flash doesn't exist any longer.

 

Also, I find it a bit rich that with the lead up time of about a year and now over 5 weeks since flash ceased operating that the charts in "market data" have ceased operating.

 

Don't for a second suggest that I should move to the "new platform" because that is out of the question.  I attempted to do that and fully set it up but then found when the market was open there was no DMA.  I then reverted to the old platform.

 

This needs to be fixed as a matter of urgency and given that I raised it at 9 o'clock this morning and it is now 4 PM I don't think it's good enough that it has not been fixed.

 

Would you please get onto it straight away.

    • Week ahead 12/12/22: Fed, BoE, ECB decisions With little or no corporate data we focus in on central bank decisions at the Federal Reserve (Fed), Bank of England (BoE) and European Central Bank (ECB). IGTV senior analyst, Joshua Mahony, discusses trades around the volatility index, the VIX, EUR/USD and the S&P 500.      
    • Charting the Markets: 9 December FTSE 100, DAX 40 and CAC 40 regain lost ground ahead of US PPI data. EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and AUD/USD look to continue their bullish two-month trend. And gold and natural gas edge higher but oil prices keep falling.         This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD look to continue their bullish two-month trend EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD look set to continue their bullish momentum, with recent worries cast aside for now.    Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 09 December 2022  EUR/USD continues to push higher after recent pullback EUR/USD has seen a more upbeat tone over the second half of the week, with the dollar strength seen on Monday and Tuesday fading to give way to another push higher for this pair. Markets appear to be in a state of flux, with inflationary concerns reemerging in the wake of last Friday’s jump in US average earnings. Today sees the release of the US producer price index (PPI) inflation figure, bringing potential volatility if we see factory prices head higher. China certainly has little to worry about on that front, with both consumer price index (CPI) (1.6%) and PPI (-1.3%) well below target thanks to cheap Russian fuel and lockdown restrictions. For EUR/USD, we would need to see a move back below the $1.029 swing-low to bring about a fresh bearish signal after two-months of upside for the pair. Until then, the bulls remain in the driving seat. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD pushing back into key resistance GBP/USD also saw a somewhat downbeat start to the week, with the pair heading lower from the crucial $1.2293 swing-high resistance level. That August high provides a crucial hurdle up ahead for bulls, with a push through that point bringing expectations of another leg higher from here. The uptrend in place over the course of the past two-months has brought expectations of further upside unless we see that ongoing pattern of higher lows end. With that in mind, a bullish view holds unless the price falls back below the $1.19 level. Keep an eye out for the UK consumer inflation expectations figure released at 9.30am this morning. Source: ProRealTime AUD/USD struggling to maintain recovery pace AUD/USD has similarly been attempting to regain ground today, with the gains seen across EUR/USD and GBP/USD failing to carry through here. This could signal a potential waning of the bullish momentum, with the fact that these pair have been slowing in their ascent of late serving to highlight the potential for another bearish reversal in the near-future. That would tally up with what is happening in equity markets, which have shown initial tentative signs of a turnaround before long. With that in mind, watch out for a break back below the $0.664 level to signal a bearish turn for this pair. Until then, the uptrend evident over the past two-months does remain in play.
