charts not working

Question

Charts on PC have not been working since Friday. Tried using different browsers - Chrome, Firefox and IE. Re started PC and modem. Re loaded Flash.

 

Tried a different PC at a different address, same thing.

 

Any ideas?

Hi 

 

There is a known issue that our Western Australia clients that use Telstra have been experiencing issues. This is a Telstra issue and has unfortunately meant that apart from giving troubleshooting advice, we are unable to resolve the issue. 

 

 If you are using Telstra, do your charts now work?

 

Thanks,

Hi,

I am also in WA and having the same problem with charts not working on my desktop. I'm with iinet so it goes beyond Telstra.  Charts work fine on my iPhone which is also with iinet, but via optus net.

I think the problem with charts not working is a windows update. When at home my iPhone uses wifi to connect to the web and IG. The charts work fine in the phone. Therefore it is the Program that has a clash with the update at the end of May. It is most frustrating. Please take another look at it.

Hi,   I'm in Sydney and have been trying for what seems about a month now with not being able to see charts.   This followed after a windows update and tried advance settings and resetting adobe flash player numerous times, sometimes rebooting in between but nothing has worked.  Had hoped another windows update last week would fix the issue but it hasn't.   

 

Have also tried chrome but have the same issue.  I work long hours and really don't feel like hanging on the phone with Telstra while they try settings as I have enough problems with them and the internet dropping out etc.

 

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Hi   IG closes all platforms Friday evenings about this time (after week end US market close) for several hours for their own general save/update/maintenance, the platforms will come back by Sat morning (UK time) and go live trading (most markets) Sunday evening.

Hi

Sorry, but it's not an issue of trying to look at charts on weekends as I don't even try then.   It's the fact that when I log into IG of an evening that charts don't come up.   Admittedly I possibly haven't tried for a month or so as I've given up for the time being but was trying a couple of times a week for months and seeing nothing.

 

Frustrating as I would often spend a couple of hours most evenings looking for trades.   I'm not saying it is an IG issue as even though I've been able to verify that I have the current version of the flash player as I tried a couple of weeks ago to do a Telstra Speed Check on data download rates it doesn't work and tells me I need to have flash player loaded.  Then tried the Oomla test and it worked there so maybe they don't use flash.   Either way there is some type of conflict with my computer and Flash and my computer is a HP and barely 1 year old.

 

regards

Hi   This problem with Telstra (Australia) carrying IG data has been going on for years and has affected traders in Syd, Melb and Perth but seems to be a specific Telstra problem and does not seem to affect any other countries or any other carriers. Check  's post not far down this thread to go through possible remedies.

Any other Australian traders who have solved this problem please advise.

I have never had chart issues with IG on Telstra mobile. It the last 3 trading days they don’t work any more.

 

You can’t just ”blame Telstra”. If they were 1% of users fine but not when they are the largest carrier.

    • 1) It would be really helpful to be able to change a stop loss from normal to guaranteed stop in the online trading platform. Currently we can only do that on the mobile app which is ridiculous because the online trading platform should be having more features than the mobile app. 2) Allow us to set limit (take profit) for partial position size. Example if I buy 5 contracts of AUD/USD at 0.7150. I would like the option to be able to set take profit for 3 contracts at 0.7170 and 2 contracts at 0.7190.   
    • Hi Folks, The platform advertises that you need to place three or more trades in the previous month to avail of the free trading on US stocks (no $15 commission) for the subsequent month. However, even with that commission fee gone you're going to have to pay IG for the currency conversion each time. You're going back and forth between buying and selling, GBP to USD to GBP ...this will equate to a lot of money. So, you've realised the above and to avoid this really ridiculous and expensive merry-go-round you turn on multi-currency feature, right? In your head you think:   "I want to exclusively trade US stocks, I've waited one month (you'd have rathered to just pay IG and not need to wait), made more than three trades on that currency merry-go-round, I am happy to pay the reasonable quarterly fee to IG from here on in and keep the account as USD while availing of their most advertised feature, the commission free trading on US stock market". The new month arrives and you can have a great time trading on the US stock market with your dollar that doesn't keep eating away at any trade profits with each buy and sell. However, the next month arrives and menacing commission fee is back! But you traded at least three times last month, what gives? Ah! But you used the multicurrency feature, and this means on the subsequent month you will not be eligible for commission free trading. You're back to square one. Your choice is to either pay IG the fee for every conversion in every trade or prevent this and keep the respective currency but also you must pay IG a commission.    Anyone else experience this? I'm hoping I'm completely wrong, but contacting the helpdesk seems to confirm this ...
    • IG need to provide a stock screener, live scanner for volume/price movement, pre-market data,  and rapid execution for private traders and rebate fees for trading view as they do for PRT, with traders who trade frequently. One can be ambitious and ask IG to provide a free platform like thinkorswim as Ameritrade does with current news stream  - again a free rebate for access to Benziga or similar with rebates linked to the amount of trades.  The money spent on IG TV perhaps can be spent somewhere else towards provision of some free resources to private traders/investors.  The IG tv is a serious issue - do IG really think that IG TV add any value?  Access to financial publications/sites might be a better thing.  The effort of IG to provide its own academy, advice etc is and always will probably a poor quality duplication.  Please learn/borrow from American brokers and now that their commission charges are Zero.  PRT - Can that be downloadable.  The web based form just slows everything down and very clunky and the charts are not elegant at all.  They have a community and they do develop or help develop some strategies. We do not want to lose them. But a live screener /scanner please.  I just realised that I do not even know if IF IT team even reads these comments or prioritise any of the suggestions. Please get rid of your IG TV investment, it is very annoying. And yes VWAP/anchored VWAP please on the charts. Give the private investors some of the rebates too. Is Charlotte, finally providing our redemption by talking these to the right eyes and ears! Overall, IG really is not that bad given others at least for UK investors. Perhaps just a less spread and less of that dreaded, sudden declaration that this stock is only for close and you can not open new position. I think that and the liquidity  excuse is lame unless IG is beholden to a particular market maker or IG somehow gets it in a very large position by itself.
