ProRealTime and other issues....



Hi, Im new to IG and trading in general, when I signed up to this platform I was under the impression ProRealTime was a free and open to use part of the platform, Ive used the platform for over a month now and I cant find or activate this feature in anyway, I cant even see a TAB where I could even activate it, Ive had an open chat window with another IG member earlier today but the chat window froze, also another annoying issue are the charts not showing up, I just get the loading symbol for ever what gives with this platform ?

Why is it all so janky ?

How can I activate ProRealTime please, and its not listed under my IG in the Setting section, not there at all, apparently Im on the new platform not the old one.

How can I make sure the charts function, without having to delete my entire internet history to do so, thats just nuts that this platform cant refresh itself, seriously ?

Any help appreciated, and thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to read this.

Hi @Pauly333

Thanks for reaching out, 

We only offer Prorealtime on leverage/ CFD accounts. As you only have a share trading account you would not be able to activate Prorealtime. Please see details on the below link: 


As for the issue with the charts please try the following troubleshooting steps: 

  1. Log out > Close all browser windows > Relaunch browser and log back in.
  2. Try another browser - Chrome is recommended, however, Firefox/Opera are great alternatives to use for troubleshooting.
  3. Try the browser's incognito (private) browsing mode

Should you not find success from the above please email our IT team with details on helpdesk.au@ig.com

All the best,

    • In this week’s Trading the Trend, Axel Rudolph FSTA looks at the downward trend of the German DAX, going short on the bounce to 12,300, with a stop-loss at 12,940 and a long-term downside target of 11,500. ig        
    • BRITISH POUND TALKING POINTS: GBP/USD was in a difficult spot earlier in September and the problem has continued to devolve. It’s a negative feedback type situation around the UK and the British Pound with a collapsing currency leading to surging bond yields which led to a BoE intervention effort that’s led to more currency collapse. It’s a painful feedback loop that hasn’t yet stopped. Is there hope on the horizon? And is this a problem that will be relegated to the UK, as it has similar hues to problems being seen in Europe and the United States. The current backdrop is messy as bonds and FX are screaming panic and meanwhile, US equities look relatively calm. I discussed this at-length in yesterday’s webinar. The British Pound collapsed last week, or so we thought, only to open our platforms this week to see what a collapse in a major currency actually looked like. GBP/USD has set a fresh all-time-low and perhaps more disturbingly, in the days since, price hasn’t really rebounded much. Sellers are still hitting the pair and now there’s other dislocations that are taking place.   The UK is faced with a similar problem as Europe and the US with extreme inflation. All three Central Banks were rather calm as inflation built through much of last year but this year, as inflation continued to run-higher even after initial tightening efforts, worry started to show given that central bank efforts were not only unsuccessful but also appearing to bring on even more problems.
