Hi @PeteWest,

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the price alerts not functioning on both the app and emails. In order to address your issue effectively, could you please send us an email at helpdesk.uk@ig.com?
Along with your email, kindly include screenshots of your alerts page or tab to show the active alerts, and also provide us with the name of your device. This will enable us to investigate whether the problem is related to the app or your account. Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Thank you,

I have been battling with the IG Mobile App Price Alerts and all other notifications not working properly for several years and have had no joy from IG in resolving this issue.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S9 with 4Gb RAM with 1.3Gb free and typically, alerts work for 10 minutes to an hour after a Phone Reset or an Application Reinstall but then stop working again. i.e. There is absolutely no evidence of the Alert being triggered except for when you look under Account->Alerts->Triggered where you can see that it has been fired.

I have been through all possible phone and application settings many times and have contacted IG on many occasions to be told that everything at IG is operational and to check my settings and reinstall the IG App. This mostly used to fix the problem for maybe a week but for the past 3 months it only works for an hour at best.

I have recently found that the problem is definitely related to the IG App Memory Cache.

Firstly I found that using Settings->Apps->IG Markets-> Force Close->Open to restart the application worked the same as doing a Phone Restart and re-enabled Alert Notifications.

I then found that if I did Settings->Device Care-> Memory->Clean Now without restarting the IG App also re-enabled Alerts.

I then installed the Droid Optimiser App and used it to automatically Clear all Application Caches every 5 minutes and the problem effectively disappeared.

So it seems very likely to me that Alert Notifications are impacted by the growth of the application Memory Cache and while I am not a phone app developer, I have 30 years of experience in systems software development and I suspect that there is a memory leak or corruption in the IG App which are of course, the most difficult problems to resolve on any software platform.

    • Here's the next set of TIME CYCLES - I've had these dates on my charts since 2015 ish Please note this is just to show you that the markets are not random and we can TIME them - the AIM of this thread is to SHOW you that dates calculated years in advance can be significant These Time Cycles are not all of them, just the ones I wanted to show you, which are the INTERNAL cycles of a bigger Time Cycle - some will hit and some won't - REMEMBER, lots of active cycles are ALL operating at the same time Notice that there's not a TC for the 2022 high - the reason is that there was one, it's just not part of this series of TC's I'm showing you - Then when we look backwards in 2034, you'll be able to see market price action around the dates and you will KNOW these are not random dates thrown on a chart in the hope of hitting - because If you are ignore the latter dates (not yet shown) in the cycle, then you will come a cropper and when Investments are concerned that will mean LOSING lots of your money I'm still using the screenshot taken in Oct 2020 - Once we complete 2025, I'll update the chart with price data and take a screen shot from then on for the next cycles The THICK BLACK line is the mid-point of the cycle, which in the grand scheme of things "should / is expected to be" a significant LOW point when viewed back in time from 2034! - It WILL NOT be a major low, so don't expect a humungous price crash to it, it will NOT be how you are imagining it in your head right now Notice that most of those cycles are "LINKED" that's because they are the same cycle which repeats THT
    • Non-farm payrolls in focus for Fed’s next move In the US, the focus is on non-farm payrolls for the month of November, due at 1.30pm (UK) today.    Angela Barnes | Financial presenter/producer, London | Publication date: Friday 08 December 2023 10:52 For a few weeks now, the market has been trying to figure out how soon the US Federal Reserve will start cutting interest rates. IGTV’s Angela Barnes has the latest. The US Federal Reserve's decision The big thing that traders are looking out for is the release of the non-farm payrolls report for November in the US. This report will give us a good idea of how many jobs were added or lost and could affect the US Federal Reserve's decision on interest rates. Right now, there's a tool called CME FedWatch that predicts a 90% chance of a rate cut by May 2024 and a 60% chance of a cut at the March meeting. So, if the report shows that not a lot of jobs were added, the chances of a rate cut happening sooner rather than later might go up. The JOLTs report There are a couple of other reports that are giving us some clues. One is the JOLTs report, which showed that job openings decreased a lot and reached the lowest level since March 2021. Another is the ADP survey, which found that private businesses hired 103,000 workers in November, which was less than expected. These reports are making traders pay more attention to the non-farm payrolls data.   People are really interested in the non-farm payrolls report, and you can see that because the price of the US dollar has gone up a little bit. The experts have different ideas about what the report will say. Some think around 100,000 to 275,000 jobs were added, but the average guess is around 180,000. This would be better than October, when 150,000 jobs were added. But keep in mind that around 30,000 workers had come back to work after being on strike. They think the unemployment rate will stay the same at 3.9%, which is the highest it's been since January 2022. And they predict that hourly earnings will have gone up about 0.3% from October and 4% compared to last year. Overall, this report is an important one for traders because it could affect interest rates. It's interesting to see the different forecasts and what they mean for the job market and the economy.       This information has been prepared by IG, a trading name of IG Markets Limited.
