Unstable Demo Platform


TraderX100

Question

I have been using the demo platform for some time and have experienced difficulty with stability of charts on all instruments and timeframes. A chart will display correctly until I click on the SELL or BUY buttons, at which point the chart collapses. I then expand the chart by stretching the vertical axis, which rectifies it. This problem delays action to trade because I normally look again at the chart prior to execution. Then when I click "Place Deal" the chart collapses again. This is quite annoying, but more importantly I could not put money at risk with this delaying / distracting factor at play. It is also very annoying to say the least, as I spend too much time correcting the chart. I have sent an email to customer support but they did not reply. It may be a fault with my PC. One way or another I would appreciate any advice from members who may have experienced this issue. Suggestions on how to fix it most welcome.

Many thanks,

Mike

Hi @TraderX100 Mike,

Thank you for sharing the screenshots. The chart is zooming out to display the your order level, limit and stop. As the limit is far from the current price it needs to zoom out to be visible.

You can remove the feature "Position Preview"  by right clicking on the chart > Show :

I hope that it helps !

All the best - Arvin

Today I tested IG platform on my second PC. It has exactly the same issue described in my first post. Both are modern computers, running on Windows 10 and software kept up to date. Therefore, I have to conclude that the problem is with IG.  Also, IG failed to answer my email so maybe this problem is by design, because it is a demo account. If this is so then I do understand why and will accept that explanation but thus far, nobody at IG has clarified the matter. 

Yours confused

Hi @TraderX100,

Thank you for your post. 

Our Demo platform is running on a different server as our Live Platform.

Could you please advise on which market you are facing this issue. If possible could you please attach a screenshot?

Thank you - Arvin

Hi @ArvinIG,

Thank you for help with is issue. As requested please see two screenshots of Nasdaq 5m. The first shows the normal display and the second shows the collapsed display after clicking Sell. The same thing happens when I click buy or sell or execute the trade so that I am constantly fixing the screen by stretching the chart back to normal. This issue occurs on all instruments and timeframes. 

With thanks

Hi @ArvinIG,
The same fault occurs on my IPad Pro 4th edition, which is only 2 weeks old, so the evidence strongly suggests the unstable displays are created by your servers and not my computers. I hope this assists your investigation. Since there are no other reports of this issue by IG Community members , I have to conclude it is unique to me.

Kind regards

Mike

    • Hey @pravid17 I hope you're well.  In the leveraged trading industry there are brokers who don't hedge client's exposure and brokers (like ourselves) who do hedge client's exposure.  In a perfect world the exposure of short clients would net off the trades of long clients however this is not always the case. Our hedging model allows us to take an exposure in the underlying market for the remaining exposure which doesn't offset - This way we don't need to hedge every trade, worry about profits of our clients and results in lower costs for hedging in the underlying market (commissions, interest etc.). So say 60% of IG customer exposure in the ASX was long and 40% of exposure on the ASX was short. The 40% would net each other off but there's a remaining 20% of customers who need to be hedged to cover their positions. We go into the market and hedge this.  We make our money primarily through our spreads and overnight funding  with other fees making up a small proportion of our revenue. I would like to remind also that IG is regulated by several bodies globally, including top-tier regulators like the UK's FCA, Germany's BaFIN, Australia's ASIC - This should be quite reassuring from a dealing execution and transparency perspective.  I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other question 
    • A survey from Reviews.org, which featured 1000 Americans, found that as many as 1 in 4 US subscribers may quit the service in the next year.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 23 September 2022  There was an interesting breakdown, but the main reason was affordability. Only 18% said they would move to a cheaper competitor. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the numbers. Netflix subscription woes Netflix Inc (All Sessions) could be in for a rough time ahead over the next 12 months if a new survey is anything to go by, which was conducted in the US. Out of the 1,000 adults that took part in this survey undertaken by Reviews.org, around 25% of those that were covered said that they would be cancelling their Netflix subscription within the next 12 months. Now, it says with that 25% of US subscribers to Netflix considering leaving, not to join a competitor, but mostly because of pressures on household bills. This is how it is split: rising cost of subscriptions - 40% inflation - 20% a lack of content - 22% spending more time on the services of others - 18% So you can see, a minority said they were going to other services, such as those provided by Disney Plus or Amazon Prime. The cost of Netflix has risen dramatically this year as its basic plan increased by 11% in January and its other plans by 20% to 25%. Now these were the first price increases for three years, so that itself is relatively new for a lot of subscribers. Netflix share price Let's take a look at the Netflix share price. You can see on the far left hand side of this chart the COVID lows at $290.39. We saw a whacking great increase there of 141% to the top and the record high in Netflix shares back in November 2021. And that was when subscriptions were rising, people were paying more for their services, and it was all humming beautifully. And then all of a sudden people started questioning the numbers of streaming services they were undertaking with some deciding to withdraw from Netflix. All of a sudden the big drops started coming through with profit warnings and sales warnings. We've recently hit a new low of $162.50. Since then there has been a little bit of an increase. We're currently trading at $232.75, but we are down by a margin of 1.75% in today's session, which reflects this news that we could well see a relatively large drop in subscribers for Netflix in the US within the next 12 months.
    • Market data to trade the week of 26 September: Nasdaq; NXT From the economic calendar next week IG technical analyst, Axel Rudolph, picks up on a short trade on the Nasdaq around US inflation data. Meanwhile, despite another light week of corporate data, Axel picks out the chart of Next plc (NXT) as an interesting trade to think about.
