New Platform


cate

Question

Hi! I find myself by default on the horrible new platform, which seems more like a mobile app. It used to be optional but I can't find a way back to the old one. Just asking if anyone knows of a way of doing that. Would appreciate any suggestions! Thanks!

Hi cate,

 

you can still use the best classic platform - when you open the dashboard there is a blue tab with open new platform, next to it is a drop down menu with a down arrow - right click on this and you can open prorealtime and the "old" platform. IG are becoming a rather pathetic outfit - hiding the only platform that works and selling our details in their new privacy policy. And if you don't like it they will take their ball away - sums them up this year............................

Hi  thanks for your question regarding how to switch between the new web trading platform and the old 'classic' platform. Thanks also to  for his assistance and direction which I can see you've found useful. 

 

I'm sorry to hear that you don't like the new web trading platform. The classic platform has been an important part of clients online dealing experience for a number of years, however it is a bit of a legacy option with different functionality bolted on as/when it was required. As with all technology we have decided to update our offering with a completely new, build from the ground up, offering which should be a staple part of your online experience for a number of years to come. 

 

I understand that sometimes change takes some getting used, and although we've tried hard to accommodate and please everyone with the upgrades, I'm aware that this won't always be met for all clients. We have continued to take on board any suggestions and feedback from clients via the top right hand 'Feedback' section (on the platform), all call or email feedback, IG Community, and specific one on one sessions for those who wanted to participate in shaping the new platform. This will of course continue whilst we roll out the online offering to the wider IG client base. 

 

I would suggest having a look at a few areas which may help in the transition. Although you can currently change between the new / old platform to provide as smooth a transition as possible, there will come a point when it will be decommissioned and turned off. 

All the best and I hope this helps.  you may find the following Community post useful in regards to your views on our new T&C's and Privacy notice, and if you would like one of our senior sales trades to give you a call to discuss this in more details please let me know or contact our helpdesk at a time convenient to yourself. I assure you we are not selling your personal details.

    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
    • Investing in stocks can be a great way to grow your wealth over time. However, there are different approaches that investors can take when choosing which stocks to buy. Two of the most popular approaches are growth investing and value investing. Growth Investing Growth investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are expected to grow at a faster rate than the overall market. These companies are often in industries that are growing quickly, such as technology or healthcare. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies will be able to generate higher profits in the future, which will lead to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of growth investing is that it can potentially provide higher returns than the overall market. However, it is also riskier than other investment strategies, as these companies often have higher valuations and more volatile stock prices. Value Investing Value investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are undervalued by the market. These companies may be in industries that are out of favour or have recently experienced challenges, but they have strong fundamentals and a history of profitability. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies are undervalued and that their true value will be recognized in the future, leading to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of value investing is that it can potentially provide lower risk than growth investing. However, it may also provide lower returns in the long run, as these companies may not have the same growth potential as companies in the growth investing category. Comparing Growth and Value Investing Growth and value investing are two different approaches to stock investing, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Growth investing can potentially provide higher returns but is riskier, while value investing can provide lower risk but potentially lower returns. An investor may choose one approach or a combination of both. A portfolio that contains a mix of growth and value stocks can provide a balance of potential returns and risk. Conclusion Both growth investing and value investing can be effective ways to invest in stocks. The key is to understand the potential risks and rewards of each approach and to choose the one that aligns with your investment goals and risk tolerance. Analyst Peter Mathers TradingLounge™ 
    • I am a beginner, and I must say, there are a lot of rules to the trading game that one must abide by if they want to be successful.   Here, the writer mentions several basic rules for day vs swing trading.  However, I find that often times, the reasoning for these rules is not as  obvious for a beginner as it may be for an expert.   The 'why' factor if I may. For example, why must you have a large capital to trade with as a day trader? Because your positions must be large so that a small change in price will be augmented and turned into a large profit. Also, with such high risk, the margin will be specially high, given the trader is taking up large positions at a time.  Without a large amount of capital, positions may be forced to close due to funds being below margin requirements.  When this happens, you can expect to lose tons of cash, fast.  I learned the hard way. All the best, David Franco
