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.

    • Everyone, it seems accepts the result of the recent  US elections, except the President and half of the GOP.  Convinced of his own meritless delusions of fraud and other voting chicanery, he now pursues a policy of obfuscation, denial of service and general spite while mad dog Giuliani and even madder Sidney Powell pursue laughable cases in various courts in the vainglorious expectation that 6 million perfectly legal votes will somehow be annulled/ cancelled and cease to  exist. This is not to be, though the only realists in the GOP are keeping their own counsel on the subject, thereby enabling the Presidents' persistent delusions. That's the problem when you believe your own propaganda, it is easy to become confused with reality. Apart from hiding rotten fish behind the radiators of the White house and carving his name on the Resolute desk, soon to be ex president Trump is doing his best to make the transition for "sleepy" Joe as difficult as he can. This includes a tacit refusal to provide more stimulus.  He has instructed Steve Munchkin to end funding for various emergency programs to the tune of $438 billion., thereby hampering the incoming Treasury secretary before he/she even walks through the door. This has rightly upset Jerome Powell who has the interest of the US economy as his overarching priority. Unfortunately, the President is unmoved by the needs of the American public as he feels they have betrayed him.  Why reward treachery? Trump is known for his heartless ardour when crushing those he deems as unworthy, which in this case is the American people as a whole, overcome as he is with nihilistic zeal.  Playing golf while ignoring a health crisis , at the same time as full denial in the face of outright defeat, does not an effective president make. Indeed, might I venture his very legacy as president and future GOP kingmaker hang very much in the balance, indeed may have been irretrievably  lost. Like Trump, lost with nowhere to go. Though he will surely be welcomed in Turkey, Russia, not to mention North Korea.  The markets really want to break higher and gap up to new ATH's but Trumps intransigence, denial (of Covid and the election results) and general spite ( no new stimulus)are causing a state of intermarket bearish divergence, with the SP and Nasdaq refusing to break into new ATHs(all time highs).  I guess we will have to wait until he is forced out come 20th Jan.

A trading strategy will have trading plan to express a methodology that defines a trader’s return goals, risk tolerance, and time frame. A successful strategy should have an edge expressed in how trades are entered and managed to maximize gains and minimize losses."
