Where are certain Instruments disappeared?

Recommended Posts

Certain instrument like Digital 100 cannot be seen. And even options. Even though I somehow found Digital 5 Min FX, which i pinned to my dashboard . Cannot find Digital FX 2 Hours.


I hope they are available in the new platform. By the way the new platform is pretty well done.


Well done IG.


Kind Regards

Thank you for trying out the New Web Trading Platform, the digital 100's are limited at the moment compared to the classic platform but options and more digital 100's are going to be added to the new platform in future. 


If you have any suggestions on other changes you would like to see then please let us know.

The new site is just dreadful. Like other users I have wasted a lot of time searching in vain for Options. In my case it's the Options (FTSE) and Options (Germany)


Email today says that later this year the classic platform will cease to be. As I said to the support staff, the new site isn't an improvement for me, it's cumbersome, it's a massive step backwards, especially when the monthly FTSE/DAX options I trade are  no longer there and I loathe it, even the look and feel is a step backwards.


As soon as they stop with the classic platform, it's bye bye IG.

Hi , thanks for the post and sorry to hear you're unhappy with the new platform.


I completely understand your frustration at the ongoing absence of the full product offering, with one of the main markets missing being options.  These are taking longer than expected to roll out to the new platform, but it is of course our objective to introduce them as soon as possible so that a smoother transition can take place for clients from classic to new.  The previous platform would not be phased out until the new platform is fully functional, and I believe our update email is to begin to prepare clients for the fact that at some point in the future they will no longer have access to the classic.


We can also acknowledge that the new platform is a complete change to what you are used to, and may not seem logical at first. However, this is very much a progressive step in terms of how the platform works, the software and programmes it relies and runs on, and the potential for further development.  We are happy to hear any feedback at any point, and the main thread for this can be found here.


Once again, I apologise for the delay in full functionality, and appreciate your patience, and all our clients'.


Thank you,

I agree but for different reasons> My main one is the useless time range for tick charts. I also want to trade options occasionally.

    • Hey @dmedin. That news piece is something I long suspected. If anyone can move the market with just one tweet then why shouldn't the cronies profit from it. I'm just surprised this has taken so long to get to the "news".
    • Ok, so I took this approach to the next level. Rather than telling the algorithm enter long at 25% and enter short at 75% levels, I decided to let the algorithm decide itself at what levels its best to enter short or long. This simplifies the strategy and boosts its gains dramatically. Top level stats over 100,000 5min candles: Gain: +1,307% % of winning trades: 60% Starting with a £2000 account, after 1 year and 1 quarter that account would have grown to almost £30k (£28k). The equity curve looks also a lot more stable, too. I resolved the issue with the lot size, this is now a formula. Unfortunately we still have 3 negative months, but overall the max runup is a lot higher than the max drawdown. Overall time in market is only 20%, so there should be the opportunity to run multiple of this strategy on different assets simultaneously to further boost the return. If let's say 3 of these programs could run simultaneously and deliver similar results you could grow £2000 to £100k within about 18 months. Still not as good as the results of the few world-class top traders like Ross Cameron from Warrior Trading, etc but a start nonetheless. The variables which the program optimised are the following: Take Profit for Long Positions: 84 points Take Profit for Short Positions: 70 Points Entry LvL for Long Positions: 23 Points below the low of previous day Entry LvL for Short Positions: 7 Points below the high of previous day Interestingly, it turned out the strategy works best without a set stop-loss, but just to close out any open positions at 21.00 o'clock at night, if not already closed by the take profit rule. I'm gonna simulate this on NASDAQ next. Obviously will need to find out the 4 variables again, as these will be subject to the Index where this is traded.   What do you guys think? Worth a shot this strategy?  
    • Lool, I'm sorry for my first post here, but it's funny :)
