Demo Vs Live Accounts - Glitchy Web Platform



I've been trialling a demo account for the last couple of weeks and wanted to ask if it's a common thing on a live account that the web platform is always playing up. Here is a list of things that I am constantly finding wrong with the platform:

  1. Blurry candlestick charts that I have to zoom in and out of in order for them to clear up. Sometimes on a new candle (depending on time looking at it, it will flash blurry also)
  2. Trades that I enter just not appearing when I am One-Click entering a position - even when I get the notification in the top right of the screen I have entered a trade
  3. No ability sometimes to add a stop and take limit level by dragging the dotted lines to the levels on the chart I wish to set them at
  4. Not being able to close a trade when I click on it - I get a notification that says the trade doesn't actually exist or the one that does it says it cannot perform that operation right now.
  5. Timeframes I set charts to in my workspaces do not remain on these settings - I constantly have a 1 hour chart that will keep changing to a 5 min when I click away from it and back on it again.

This is for FX trading (I'm not using the account and platform for anything else). I have used different browsers, cleared my cache/cookies/history and even use incognito browser. My internet speed is checked at running at around 44mbps so it's not a connection issue either.

I'm looking for a good reliable FX broker to trade with and whilst I find the quality of other brokers platforms very good, I just don't feel comfortable executing trades on them - IG on the other hand, I am most comfortable using but the issues I continually experience, turns me off thinking about funding a live account.

Is it just demo that this happens on or is it an IG issue?

    • Market data to trade on Friday: Aussie retail sales; US PCE; oil As we crown out the last week of May, Friday will be dominated by US inflation data, Australian retail sales and oil prices. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at key levels to watch on AUD/USD and US crude oil.      
    • The UK government has, expectedly, slapped a one-off tax on oil companies’ profits. Jeremy Naylor looks at the price of Brent and indicates the price of unleaded at various key points along the chart as a relatable barometer. In this context big oil companies have shrugged this off, indeed BP having just risen to a new post-Covid high, but small-cap oil is not so happy as seen in the chart of Hurricane.
