Market depth data


Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me understand why i am not seeing any market depth data for some shares? For example, the pic below is what i see for SThree plc (STEM) in my share dealing / isa account.

I am seeing market depth for other shares, so it is just a case that there is no market in this share? I find this a bit strange given that it is listed on the main market. Is it some sort of bug in the trading platform?

Hi, market depth data was only added to the web based platform a year or so ago, previously was only on the DMA platform. When IG started the rollout they said it would be gradual and initially there were only a few stocks that had it.

Maybe @CharlotteIG can check and update as it is an important feature.

There were no known issues with this order book yesterday and as long as you have L2 data enabled you should have seen it. 

If the issue still occurred today let me know and I will get our technical team to investigate. 

All the best

Thanks, Charlotte.

The situation has not changed - I am still unable to see the market depth data for STEM.

I have checked my settings and believe i have L2 enabled.

This is not the only stock.

Hi Charlotte,

There has been no change and i am still unable to see the market depth data for a number of shares, one example being STEM.

When is this likely to be resolved?

Thanks.

Still no change.  Still unable to see market depth data for a number of stocks, one example being STEM.

Is anyone looking into this? When is this likely to be resolved?

Hi @CharlotteIG

I dont know if you have seen any of my messages above, but just to confirm that there has been no change in the situation and it has been three weeks since the issue was raised.

Grateful if you could provide an update and advise how much longer this is going to take to resolve.

Thanks

    • Hi, Can anyone tell me what is it called when the broker stops any clients buying on a particular commodity/stock/indices etc.  To close a position you have to call IG.  
    • Yes. IG does trade against retail traders. IG also has a lot of institutional traders. If your are trading low volume stock or Singapore CFD equities, the dealing desk will manually lock your order for a good 30 seconds so that you cannot delete nor change the order price level for the 30 seconds when they there is another bigger clients want to unload.  I have been locked this way as many ast 4 times in the past and cost over SG$10,000 loss. When I called IG, it said the dealing desk manually lock my orders with an excuse they are putting my order on hold so that they hedge it on the Exchange. In the first place I trade CFD and CFD is internal market within IG environment and our trade does not affect the market. It is highly irresponsible to lock our order. My complaints to IG for compensation via calls and emails all went without any positive response and the replies from them are as stated above. CFD market is internal market and our order should not be touched by dealing desk at all time even if there is no liquidity to fill our order then our order should just be left unfilled. At no time our order should never be locked by Dealing desk. To me this is day light robbery. Secondly, IG has deployed internal algorithm to hunt your hard stop losses and also filled in your limit order with a spike to the dot before immediately move in the opposite direction big time. Thirdly, some time IG platform will freeze and unable to re-login back when you are in a trade. This made it extremely dangerous when we cannot see the price action on the chart. This had happened to me a few times. Fourthly, nowadays even if your platform freeze or has other problem on your trade, call to their dealing desk during US market opens 100% of the time no support or dealing desk will pick your calls. My phone was kept ringing for 30mins or more and many different days. This is again does not speak well of the kind of support IG gave clients. The only attraction I use IG is the ease of use of their trading platform. These kind of  underhand tactics above are played out in IG on daily basis which made our day trading very difficult to win. It is very visible if your trade the small time frame how IG's manipulations are done.     The above comes from someone who trade daily with IG for the past 3 years. I am even considering to stop trading through IG because of the above under hand tactics. Sometimes
