i am doing scalping on Russel 2000 on 20 April 2022 at 10:16 pm Singapore time.

To my surprise in a few occasions my chart is FROZEN...   the buy sell tick is still ticking and number changing but the chart is frozen for about 6 minutes between 10:10 to 10:17 pm !!

Luckily the profit loss number are changing and i quickly closed all my positions..  but the chart is frozen for about 6 minutes !!

What is happening ?   Is IG chart not reliable anymore ??

A matter of perspective, I guess. I look at it this way...

After thinking about this some more I think you are right about apps running in browsers. Looks like the IG web platform is written in JavaScript using a well-known framework.

Makes sense to think of it was an app. 😊

A client trading platform must be running somewhere in order for a person to execute trades on the broker-dealer's trade server. In browser trading, the app (platform) my be hosted on the broker-dealer's data server, but the website loads in the trader's browser.

In contrast, a desktop MT4 platform (or a broker-dealer's ih-house platform) is hosted on the trader's local machine and communicates directly with the broker-dealer's data server and trade server. There is no browser involved. As a side note, broker-dealers offering MT4 generally have a separate trade server dedicated to MT4.

I would think there wouldn't be much difference in terms of the messages which are sent between the app in the browser and a MT4 client?

e.g. both would communicate with the broker's server such as sending request messages for price bar info to display and sending execute messages for buy/sell orders.

    • Ever feel like you're stuck in crypto traffic? Slow transactions and outrageous fees are the bane of using blockchains like Ethereum at their core (Layer 1). These networks can only handle a limited number of transactions per second, causing major congestion during peak hours. The result? Frustratingly slow processing and expensive fees for users.   But wait, there's hope! Layer 3 rollups are here to revolutionize the game. Imagine them as express lanes built on top of existing bypass roads (Layer 2 solutions). Layer 2 already helps by alleviating some of the traffic on the main highway (Layer 1). Layer 3 rollups take it a step further, adding dedicated express lanes to these bypass roads for super-fast processing. This innovative approach tackles Layer 1's congestion by distributing the workload across multiple layers, ultimately leading to faster, cheaper, and more scalable blockchain applications.   While specific layer 3 implementations are still under development, some projects are paving the way. Immutable X (IMX token) built on StarkNet (a Layer 2 scaling solution) and dYdX (DYDX token), a decentralized exchange on StarkNet, are both exploring layer 3 rollups to achieve even smoother transactions. Keep an eye out for zkLink Nova, a major player in the scalability game. This cutting-edge technology leverages the strengths of existing solutions to deliver groundbreaking performance. Backed by leading crypto institutions with over $23 million invested in the zkLink ecosystem, zkLink Nova is generating serious buzz ahead of its ZKL token listing on Bitget. Get ready for a smoother ride on the crypto highway!
