Loss of LSE non-order-book data feed

Question

I trade mainly SETSqx (Market Maker) stocks on AIM, but since yesterday the graphs & trade data is not updating. This is apparently caused by LSE's third-party provider making some sort of major change that will take a month to resolve:

Is there anything you can do to help improve the situation? How about at least feeding the daily and weekly charts you provide with opening and closing values?

 

Otherwise - as someone who relies on charts (on the Android App) constantly for my trading - I'm flying blind here!!

Is nobody else furious about this, you've right, it makes SETSqx a bloomin nightmare. I've got open positions and rely on charts, volume and price action for my trading decisions. It's absolutely outrageous and we had no warning. This loss of service is totally unacceptable and if IG had prior warning I hope they are ready to meet claims. Regards

    • I found a really good trade / market, waited until 2.30 when it opened to place the trade. Immediately placed the trade, then straight after I noticed the spread split had been increased to 10... I was p*ssed, I was in £112 deficit immediately. I'm going to wait it out, it must become a good trade, maybe that's why the commissions become high?... I hope so anyway.
    • Hi Can anyone please explain how I can place a limit trade out of hours. Nabtrade let me do it, but I cant figure IG out. cheers, Jimmy  
    • Ok folks , let's be honest here .  I am pretty sick of all the BS that goes around forums and youtube people claiming they are making millions  when the reality is they are sitting at home in their pants frantically checking IG every 3 seconds to see if the hole they dug themselves into getting any smaller. Up 50 quid and all of a sudden they are trading experts or nostradamus. Me: Up 15% on my share dealing but in reality its because its a bull market and I bought months ago. Spread Betting is about £1500 loss in 2 months  mainly because I am more wrong that right, rather than foolish trading. Although I did have a massive c@ck up by leaving a position open overnight and losing 900 in one go). Learnt what a guaranteed stop is after that!  My aim is just to break even by Christmas, learn a lot and by then assess if I can make a modest living from Swing / Day trading. I can dedicate  most of time to this as I am not working now.  Modest being 20% annually At this stage I am doubtful. I have read a lot, made a pile of notes but I am convinced most is just hot air /fluff, authors cherry picking charts and rehashing ago old indicators to show that they are experts, or **** out their training courses Still I will pursue it  for the next 6 months and make a final decision. At least now I am sensible with stops, never more that 1% on a trade and no more losses than 5% of current portfolio a month. Thus max possible loss is 26% in 6 months
