Serious PRT bug happening every day


Recommended Posts

I have been using IG for many years and there is a bug which used to happen occasionally last year but now happens every day this year which will affect thousands of your clients many of whom will be blissfully unaware especially if they use candlesticks on the charts.

 

There are 3 or 4 major UK shares on spread betting DFB where PRT time incorrectly plots and reports a pre 8am plot seconds before the market opens.

 

Worldpay, TUI AG and Paddy Power Betfair are the usual 3.

 

 The data in the extra plot is garbage, not an auction price and means that the opening time and price (the most important plot of the day) and all indicators relying on these are wrong for the rest of the day!

 

Note these plots do not appear on your own in house charts just PRT and from the FTSE100 shares it is only the same 3 or 4 shares which means they cannot be traded.

 

I have tried to raise this with your IT department but have been fobbed off so posting here in public is almost a last resort.

 

I am a big fan and loyal to IG but please no waffle excuses or fobbing off - just a date when this serious problem will be fixed.

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi

 

We have asked IT finance this question before based on the screenshots you had sent to us. IT finance replied that the data they use is the un-modified version of the feed, this is something they cannot change. You can perhaps specify your trading hours for the LSE feed however this would limit your historical data by a considerable amount.

 

We would be happy to query this matter with IT finance again if you have any new data on the issue.

 

Thanks

Anton

Thank you for your reply but it is nonsense with respect as the pre 8am plots would appear on ALL shares.  The problem just affects the same 3 or 4 shares every day and the data plotted is wild and spurious.

 

It is simply a bug.  Please stop fobbing me off.  

 

Note even when the trading hours are adjusted to be >=8 am the plots still appear and mess up the indicators for the whole day.

 

Interestingly enough the bug did not happen today for the first time all year ...maybe somebody has quietly fixed the bug or maybe a very helpful gentleman in your South African office who I spoke to yesterday managed to get IT Finance to fix it.

 

I will monitor the situation and feedback if the bug re appears.  Thank you for your assistance.

    • Asian-Pacific stocks traded mostly flat to start the week, with light weekend newsflow focused on geopolitics. In Europe, equity futures point to a lower open after gains on Friday. The calendar this week focuses on inflation , with Japan kicking off the world tour of price data today. This is followed up by US PCE data on Wednesday, German CPI on Thursday and then the eurozone reading on Friday. While today begins quietly on the earnings front, UK earnings crowd the rest of the week, taking over from the US as reporting season there enters its final weeks.   
    • NZDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day  Chart, 26 February 24 New Zealand Dollar/U.S.Dollar (NZDUSD) Day Chart NZDUSD Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION:   Trend MODE: Impulsive STRUCTURE: Blue wave 1 POSITION:  Black wave 3 DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES: Blue wave 2 DETAILS:black wave 2 looking completed at 0.60363 .  Now blue wave 1 of black  wave 3  is in play. Wave Cancel invalid level: 0.60512 The "NZDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart" dated 26 February 24, provides a comprehensive analysis of the New Zealand Dollar/U.S. Dollar (NZDUSD) currency pair on a daily timeframe, employing Elliott Wave principles to discern potential market movements. The designated "FUNCTION" is "Trend," indicating the primary objective is to identify and capitalize on the prevailing market direction. In this context, the focus is on capturing impulsive waves that define the strength and persistence of the overarching trend. The specified "MODE" is "Impulsive," signaling a market environment characterized by strong, forceful, and directional price movements. This suggests that the current phase in the market is conducive to identifying and participating in the primary trend. The described "STRUCTURE" is "Blue wave 1," denoting the specific wave within the Elliott Wave hierarchy. Blue wave 1 represents the initial phase of a larger impulsive move, typically marking the beginning of a new trend. The identified "POSITION" is "Black wave 3," indicating the current position within the broader Elliott Wave pattern. Wave 3 is often the most dynamic and extended wave in the sequence, reflecting a powerful surge in the direction of the dominant trend. In terms of "DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES," the analysis emphasizes "Blue wave 2," suggesting the anticipated corrective phase following the completion of black wave 3. The "DETAILS" section notes that "black wave 2 looking completed at 0.60363. Now blue wave 1 of black wave 3 is in play." This suggests the conclusion of a corrective phase (black wave 2) and the initiation of the next impulsive move (blue wave 1 of black wave 3). The "Wave Cancel invalid level" is set at 0.60512, serving as a critical reference point. A breach beyond this level would invalidate the current wave count and prompt a reevaluation of the analysis. In summary, the NZDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis for the daily chart on 26 February 24, indicates a continuation of the impulsive move, with blue wave 1 of black wave 3 in progress. Traders are advised to monitor the unfolding of blue wave 1 and consider the invalidation level at 0.60512.       NZDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4 Hour  Chart, 26 February 24 New Zealand Dollar/U.S.Dollar (NZDUSD) 4 Hour Chart NZDUSD Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION:   Trend MODE: Impulsive STRUCTURE: red wave 3   POSITION:  Blue wave 1 DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES: red wave 4 DETAILS:red wave 2 of blue wave 1 looking completed at 0.60512 .  Now red wave 3 of blue wave 1  is in play. Wave Cancel invalid level: 0.60512 The "NZDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4 Hour Chart" dated 26 February 24, presents a detailed analysis of the New Zealand Dollar/U.S. Dollar (NZDUSD) currency pair using Elliott Wave principles. The focus is on a 4-hour chart, allowing for a more granular examination of price movements. The identified "FUNCTION" is "Trend," indicating that the analysis aims to capture the prevailing direction in the market. This suggests an interest in identifying and riding the impulsive waves that contribute to the overall trend. The specified "MODE" is "Impulsive," signaling that the current market conditions are characterized by strong, forceful, and directional price movements. Impulsive waves typically indicate the primary trend's strength and persistence. The described "STRUCTURE" is "Red wave 3," highlighting the current position within the larger Elliott Wave pattern. Wave 3 is often the strongest and longest phase of the Elliott Wave cycle, representing a powerful surge in the direction of the dominant trend. The designated "POSITION" is "Blue wave 1," indicating the specific wave within the Elliott Wave hierarchy. Blue wave 1 represents the initial phase of the larger trend cycle and marks the beginning of a new impulsive move. In terms of "DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES," the analysis emphasizes "Red wave 4," suggesting the anticipated correction or consolidation phase following the completion of red wave 3. The "DETAILS" section notes that "red wave 2 of blue wave 1 looking completed at 0.60512. Now red wave 3 of blue wave 1 is in play." This indicates the conclusion of a corrective phase (red wave 2) and the commencement of the next impulsive move (red wave 3 of blue wave 1). The "Wave Cancel invalid level" is set at 0.60512. This level serves as a crucial reference point, beyond which the current wave count would be considered invalid. In summary, the NZDUSD Elliott Wave Analysis for the 4-hour chart on 26 February 24, suggests a continuation of the impulsive move, with red wave 3 of blue wave 1 in progress. Traders are advised to monitor the unfolding of red wave 3 and consider the invalidation level at 0.60512. Technical Analyst : Malik Awais
