Chart not working on Chrome for PC

Question

Chart window is opening, but there is no content within it. I have updated my Adobe Flash as per the instructions somewhere in the support pages. The charts still won't load though... any appropriate ways to fix this problem?

P.S. I am in Melbourne. Sounds like I am having a similar problem as experienced by a couple of other members that were in WA recently, but no fix was identified. TIA

I lost chart functionality around 12pm today - is there a current known issue?

 

2 seperate PC's both using Chrome (have also tried Internet Explorer, no better).

Connected via Telstra.

Telstra Mobile shows charts OK on iPhone.
Based in SE QLD

Thanks in advance

Yes, I have read that the finger of IG has been pointed at Telstra in previous posts. I am, however, not using Telstra and makes me wonder where the problem actually lies.

So I've enabled chrome to run flash for allowed websites, and explcitly whitelisted ig.com, but Chrome is still blocking flash and not able to launch charts (BTW, I was able to launch charts yesterday). Microsoft Edge browser is also broken - can't launch charts. And google think they can design a self driving car!!!

 

Update: I launched IG in chrome incognito mode, and when launching the charts, I get a message saying flash is not installed. This is incorrect as I've reinstalled the flash plugin for chrome, and flash works at other websites such as speedtest.net.

 

I'm starting to thing the problem is actually on IG's webservers now. Is anyone able to view the flash charts today on chrome or edge?

Hi koala, Have you tried following Earthalien's advice (a couple of entries above yours)? I had exactly the same problem as you, but found that worked. Here are the steps:

TME - cheers for that. My flash settings don't have the option to allow all sites - I have to select ask first - see screen snippet. And I have added ig.com to the whitelist sites also. I've also restarted chrome (version 62.0.3202.75 (Official Build) (64-bit)).

 

The sooner IG abandons the dead Adobe flash and moves to HTML5 the better for us all. This flash plugin is not working in my Chrome or Microsoft Edge browser - whereas it was working last week.

 

Have you seen any other tips or pointers to try apply to get flash working again?

Yes, I agree, Adobe flash is quite a nuisance, and time for something new.

 

The 'ask first' (or rather 'don't ask first') might be quite important. I haven't experimented with this (don't dare!) as my charts are working OK for the time being.

 

Sorry, but I don't have any other suggestions at present. Hope you can find an alternative solution soon.

 

TME

I've got the exact same issue. Charts haven't been working for 2 days now. Tried on other computer at another location and same thing. IE, Foxfire and Chrome. None work and I've tried everything suggested in the recent threads for the same issue. This is an IG Markets issue. 

 

I'll post another thread to make IG Markets wake up and listen instead of saying it's a computer issue. Something is wrong with their web platform.

I found that disabling both of my ad blockers (AdBlock and AdBlock Plus) in chrome resolved the issue.

I'm having the same problem, I have tried the above solutions and it does not work.

There are some very odd features about this problem

1. Flash works on all other sites that need it apart from IG on my computer

2. It does not work on chrome or edge but does work on my phone through the app

3. If I newly install flash it works, but as soon as I reboot it stops working

 

I don't think it's an IG sever issue as it works on my phone

Can any tech gurus help?

Hi @marksiqi,  most likely cause is site permissions. At the top of the IG browser page in the url click on the padlock icon, click on Flash Allow, not Ask, (may need to go via 'site settings'), then exit and click on the banner prompt to Reload page.

Works for me. Thank you. M

On the chrome browser there will be a small icon that comes up on the right corner at the end of the webaddress, which says that "the site is prevented from setting cookies", click that and when you go to settings menu, take the tick off from the following::
Block third-party cookies
Prevent third-party websites from saving and reading cookie data
 
the next moment you will see the charts, it happened to me for charles schwab charts too.

    • My interpretation (FWIW) is that a small number of winning clients get the money, and IG 'only' keeps the spreads. But if 70 - 80% of clients are long on a market (say), and they turn out to be right (copper, recently) then I don't see how IG could stop from losing money unless it put some kind of real trade on or fund the losses from money made elsewhere (in an underlying market where most clients were wrong)
    • Interesting conversation about HOW IG operate. I have to agree with Larry trading here. IG always say they do not take the other side of the bet. BUT the fact is when you trade with them you are absolutely not in the real market, your money stays with 'Bank of IG' - so far as I am concerned if you lose they win and vice-versa. As Larry said you are placing a trade or a bet against the data feed that IG supply - that's it. There is no one on 'the other side' of your trade. The only time IG put it out to the real market is if their risk model requires that, i.e. everyone is taking one side, short or long. Again as Larry states we are NOT in the 'real market' we do not provide liquidity ! WHY should IG care about matching another client to the 'other side' of your retail trade ? They KNOW all retail traders lose anyway. If I place a 'long' trade on the DAX and lose when spread-betting, where is that loss going, WHERE EXACTLY ? It goes to IG, are you (Caseynotes) saying it goes to the other IG client taking an opposing trade, i.e. someone that went 'short' ? Bearing in mind 80% of retail traders at IG lose WHERE are all those losses going ? ANSWER: TO BANK OF IG.  CaseyNotes says ' IG matches buyers to sellers' that's a nice 'theory' ...again all the money stays with IG as we, the spread bettors, are NOT in any real market at all. You mention CFD's above and how they correlate with SB but again CFDs are not the real market they (brokers) just copy (via data-feed) the cash and futures market. As you correctly say CFDs are taxable for the rest of Europe to trade with.  I have not got a problem - like LarryBoy - about how IG operate, but as far as I am concerned Larry is right, all the trades when SB'ing stay with IG ONLY inc. all the trades / bets placed and monies stay with them. If you loose they win. End of. You can call that 'taking the other side of your trade' ... I personally do not, as it kind of implies that they are 'cheating' their Clients which they are not. Again they do not need to: ALL retail traders lose (80 - 90%).   
    • Hi there To close this off I was advised the Red Cross doesn’t necessarily mean anything.? For me it appeared at the end of every day alongside the company name, when the markets closed but became a green dot when the markets were open. As long as the Red Cross isn’t there on open market time it’s nothing to worry about. Still don’t understand why it’s there at all so maybe it’s not a good sign but IG feel it’s nothing I need to concern myself with. cheers.
