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.

Well great news the bug did not appear again today so that is 2 days in a row.

 

I hope this means that the bug has been permanently fixed.  I will continue to monitor.

 

Thank you.

    • The Covid Hoax continues. Everything centers on the PCR test and it's deliberate misuse. A PCR of 25 cycles identifies the infectious with a minimal amount of false positives, the more cycles you do the more false positives are included. Fauci himself has said 35 cycles and above most results are false positives for infectious material. Western countries are running the PCR test at 45 cycles which is mathematically known to give 90%+ false positives. Govt and health officials know this. Groups in Portugal have joined groups in Italy and the UK in starting legal action against the fraudulent misuse of the PCR test used to justify continuing lockdowns and social restrictions. Meanwhile new research from the US finds: “All of this points to no evidence that COVID-19 created any excess deaths. Total death numbers are not above normal death numbers. We found no evidence to the contrary,”  Just as has already been found in many other countries (see recent posts above for data from Sweden and Ireland).  https://web.archive.org/web/20201126223119/https://www.jhunewsletter.com/article/2020/11/a-closer-look-at-u-s-deaths-due-to-covid-19  
    • Doh! Maybe I should have thought it through a bit more aha. Not been having much luck instraday atm, so was going to try and take advantage of moves that last multible days, and so was wondering about overnight charges. But like you said, it's proably cheaper than the spread anyway. Cheers
