Can't get the L2 service working

Hi there,


I've signed up for the L2 service and have downloaded the app onto my PC. However, it doesn't seem to be working! I can't get the prices for any market at all - whether I try looking in the dictionary or use the search bar. It appears to be connected - it just isn't working - any tips as to what may be going wrong?

Hi  and welcome to the Community. 


L2 is a shares DMA software which provides additional order types and more complex dealing functionality. You can use it on CFD accounts for shares trading, as well as on Stockbroking and ISA accounts. With this in mind, if you are experiencing issues, please try the following:


  1. Close the platform, restart your PC and make sure you have the latest updates for your system. Double check that you can access the IG platform via a regular browser and that you can bring up the markets and stock you want to trade. 
  2. You need to make sure you have the correct data permissions as well. The reason for this is that the individual exchanges charge for live data. You can make sure your data permissions are as you want them to be via the My IG > Settings > Data Permissions section.
  3. Make sure you have the latest updates installed on your computer including the latest L2 software
  4. Check that you haven’t logged into L2 on an account it doesn’t support (eg spread betting).

If you are still having issues please let me know and I can get someone to contact you directly.

    • Stocks in Asia managed to move higher overall, though weakness in Japan was the outlier. A poor performance from China's trade data raised hopes that some form of stimulus might eventually come to pass in the world's second-largest economy, as the slowdown intensifies. Markets remain relatively quiet overall, as the focus shifts to next week's clutch of central bank meetings. Yesterday's more hawkish RBA may give the Bank of Canada cover to raise rates once again, defying general expectations of a pause.   
    • Early Morning Call: Europe indices hesitant as Australia GDP, China exports dampen mood Australia's economy grew at the weakest pace in a year and a half last quarter while in China, exports shrank much faster than expected in May - 7.5% year-on-year.  Angeline Ong | Presenter, Analyst and Content Editor, London | Publication date: Wednesday 07 June 2023 09:03 APAC overview APAC equity markets were mixed on Wednesday after economic data in Australia and China dampened the mood of investors. Australia's economy grew at the weakest pace in a year and a half last quarter. Gross domestic product (GDP) rose 0.2% quarter-on-quarter (QoQ), easing from 0.6% in the previous quarter. Consumers have become increasingly selective in terms of their spending, privileging essential goods and services. Household consumption rose only by 0.2% in the first three months of the year, contributing 0.1% percentage points to GDP. Back on March 21st, at the end of the first quarter, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) considered that its monetary policy was then in restrictive territory. Indeed, the latest GDP data showed that rising interest rates have started to bite. Minutes after the release of GDP data, Australia's Treasurer Jim Chalmers said inflation was proving more stubborn than hoped for, supporting the recent RBA decisions. Since that March meeting, the RBA has hiked its cash rate twice more, taking it to an 11-year high of 4.1%, and is still saying more tightening may be required. In China, exports shrank much faster than expected in May, by 7.5% year-on-year (YoY). It was the largest decline since January. Imports fell too, albeit at a slower pace of 4%. This is yet another indication that China's manufacturing sector is struggling to recover. This poor export performance reflects weak demand for Chinese goods. Some economists now believe that in that context of global weakness, China needs to rely more on domestic demand. This adds pressure on government to boost domestic consumption. Macroeconomics In the UK, the Halifax house price index stayed unchanged in May compared to the previous month, down 1% YoY. In Germany, industrial production rose by 0.3% in May MoM, after a 2.6% drop the previous month. Are we up for an interest rate hike in Canada? A majority of economists don't think so, but they expect one at the Bank of Canada's (BoC) subsequent meeting in July. The last time the Bank of Canada raised its overnight rate was on January 25. The Bank decided to hold rates at its last two meetings, as it considered borrowing costs restrictive enough to bring inflation down. Canadian inflation peaked earlier than most economies in June last year at 8.1% and has since declined to 4.3% in March. But then we had a rebound in April to 4.4%. The BoC has room to raise interest rates sooner rather than later. Canada's economy has been fairly resilient so far this year. GDP growth for the first three months hit 0.8% QoQ, and the unemployment rate has been stuck at a 49-year low for the past five months. Equities Boeing warned on Tuesday evening it could be forced to slow deliveries of its 787 Dreamliner. The American aircraft maker discovered a new production flaw, and now needs to inspect all 90 jets in its inventory, and believes it will take two weeks to fix each aircraft. The SEC crackdown on the crypto industry is escalating. The US securities regulator issued a lawsuit against Coinbase on Tuesday, the second in two days against a major crypto exchange. On Monday, the SEC targeted Binance, the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange. The two cases are of a different nature. The SEC accused Binance and its CEO Changpeng Zhao of operating a "web of deception". As for Coinbase, the regulator considers it is operating illegally because it failed to register as an exchange. If successful, these lawsuits could trigger a major change in the crypto world, asserting the SEC's jurisdiction over it. So far, the industry's argument is that tokens do not constitute securities and should not be regulated by the SEC.   This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
