PRT V12 Bugs



I have been using PRT for the past 15 years or more, indeed I was partly responsible for introducing many of my clients to the platform in 2007. So, I suspect like many others using ProRealTime (PRT) V10.3 charting platform were more than happy with it. So simple, so easy to use. I had a look at V11 and decided some time ago that I wouldn’t change to it until I had to. Then shock of shocks, Friday’s login I knew I wouldn’t see V10 anymore.

V12 took most of Friday to find my way around. I’m old school so I don’t need any fancy gizmos to aid my trading. Now I find that even the simple stuff has lots of bugs. I sincerely hope that someone has been working over the weekend (PRT HQ in France) to at least straighten out some obvious programming issues.

In the older version (V10), if I wanted to configure something I could click a button and up popped a box with easy to alter item, periods, colour, lines, etc. click another button and save the changes. Now with V12 I find that some of the items changed do not hold the requests, e.g. take a straight line, yes you can alter the thickness, but ask it to hold a new colour and it stubbornly stays the same colour (yes, I have discovered how to configure something and make it stick and now I have to type in what to call the change, why? There’s annoying number of items that refuse to stick. Take the text box, it will not hold the requested border colour, there’s lots more bugs I could mention, but you get the gist. Worst of all despite saving all the work I did on Friday none of it has not been saved, so I’m back to where I was when I first logged in on Friday 01-12-23. I won’t be doing all that again in a hurry until I know the platform has been reprogrammed, I’ll trade elsewhere for now!

I can’t believe that PRT would release such a major overhaul of this previously excellent programme without testing it to distraction before the release date and why change something that was once so easy? If it ain’t broken don’t mend it! Maybe you’re expecting IG clients (et-al) to do that for you.

Finally - IG, why were we not told of this imminent change in advance? Fortunately, I take screen shots every day, so I do have hundreds of trading examples from the past. I thought we - your traders - were your valued clients? It doesn’t feel that way.

Hi @shaggy99 -

I totally agree with you.  PRT 10.3 is what I still use.  You can get back to 10.3 by clicking the "previous versions" part of the button instead of simply clicking through to v12.  It seems you need to keep the old launch app installed as the new one does not seem to be backward compatible.  For now we are still being offered both previous versions but I see no advantage in going to v11 because candles fade to near invisibility when the chart is zoomed out past a couple of clicks.  This makes a historical chart useless.  So I'm not surprised that v12 is a complete shambles. 

If anyone from IG reads this, could you please take some time to interact with this thread with a view to making the charting better, possibly by finding a better alternative to IG charts than PRT?  IT-Finance (PRT charts) seem to be getting worse with each new version of their platform.

    • ARTFI's mission to make high-value art accessible through fractional ownership and NFTs is a fascinating concept. Let's explore other projects breaking down barriers in the art world and bringing ownership to the masses. ARTFI offers some unique features beyond just fractionalization: Focus on Blue-Chip Art, their concentration on established artists attracts high-net-worth collectors and increases investment potential. Industry Endorsements, supports from prominent figures adds credibility to the platform. So, is ARTFI your one-stop shop for owning a piece of an iconic painting because they are listed on Bitget? Maybe or maybe not. There are other options, and the art market itself is evolving alongside NFTs. What do you think? Is ARTFI a revolutionary force in art ownership, or just a trendy gimmick? Have you explored any other fractional ownership or art-related NFT projects? Share your thoughts in the comments!
    • Mystiko Network like competitors like Omni are promoting interoperability and scalability in the crypto landscape. However, Mystiko is standing out with seamless compatibility with various L1 and L2 blockchains which they have extended to cross-chain bridges, wallets, DEXs, and other dApps. By eliminating blockchain barriers, Mystiko Network allows users to transfer assets and interact with various dApps more easily. This focus on interoperability goes hand-in-hand with scalability. Plus, their ZK SDK allows developers to build secure and private dApps while reducing costs and simplifying cross-chain transactions. It has successfully raised $29.25 million and have forge backing from industry giants like Samsung Next, Coinlist, Hashkey Capital etc... emphasizes it potential and gives it a firm foothold in the interoperability niche. Mystiko is about to hit another milestone as their token XZK is about to be listed on a Tier1 CEX like Bitget further exposing it to investors! Overall, they are ticking the right boxes and I believe they are a project to watch!
