Charts not working

Question

I can not get the basic chart to work.  I just installed the latest Javascript but still no go.  I remember last time I used IG Markets, a couple of years ago, I spent hours working this out.  I can't believe they haven't made the process easier by now.

Hi   be aware IG shuts down most platforms for a few hours at about this time at end of week for  maintenance/save/update. That may be the problem.

Hi  - we haven't had any other reports of charts not working, however like  stated we do routinely turn off full platform functionality over the weekend for maintenance etc. If your charts still aren't working then I believe it would be something isolated to your machine or set up, however the following troubleshooting methods may help. 

 

  1. Open your chart in a different web browser.  For example, if you usually use Windows Explorer, try Google Chrome. We recommend Chrome as a default browser. All the support below relates to Chrome, however different browsers may have different methods.
  2. Make sure that you’ve allowed ‘Flash’ for the IG.com website. Simply right-click on ‘IG Group Limited’ in the address bar, and select Flash > Always allow.
  3. Clear your cache and browsing data. You should usually be able to find this under the ‘settings’ or ‘history’ section in most browsers. On Chrome, click the options button in the top right-hand corner, and then ‘more tools’ and ‘clear browsing data’. Make sure to tick the first three boxes, and then click ‘clear browsing data’.
  4. Please clear your Flash cache by clicking on this link and selecting ‘delete all sites’ in the website settings storage panel towards the top of the screen.
  5. Please make sure that your Flash player settings are correct, depending on whether or not you have a 32 or 64 bit computer. This link will provide you with the correct software.

Hello James!

 

I've just tried it on Chrome (again) and charts are not working. That's most likely because I'm on MacOS which doesn't support for Flash for many reasons.

 

When are you going to provide charts in HTML5?

 

BY the way, the market data page doesn't work properly, either. There is no scaling available.

 

 

Regards,

Max

I am in the same position as several others here - I have tried everything suggested but still can not access charts.  I do not have an indefinite time available to sit at the computer and it seems difficult/impossible to get help from the supposed support team.

It works now after I installed Flash Player for Mac from the Adobe site. Make sure you only allow Flash for specific, trusted, sites.

 

HTH.

    • So US indices have been climbing higher (albeit a red day today). Trump needs the US stock market to blossom in order for him to say that it is a lot higher since he became US President.  So what happened to the wall he was going to build? This was one of the key pledges he was making during his election campaign. It is no different to Boris Johnson saying with confidence that the UK would leave the EU on 31st October 2019! There were even messages on the M1 (Motorway) in the UK inferring this.  POLITICAL SPIN and Marketing Wizardry at its best. Trump has focussed the media attention on the US-China Trade War to deflect from his broken promise so far.  Traders need to understand the fundamentals and how they work when it comes to politics and economics when trading not just US and UK indices but all major indices around the world. There were lots of stock market predictions being made about how it was going to see a big fall but this has not materialised. It may well do in 2020, I don't know, but never fight the trend until the bend at the end. Even then the bend can turn back again and continue which is what we have been witnessing with the US indices as politicians control the news flow, dictate the narrative and plot the course for stock markets.  
    • One should treat trading like a business. In any successful business there would be a business plan. So for any successful trader there must be a trading plan.  There is a cheesy line but very true which is something like - failing to plan is a plan to fail.  Some of the best and most successful traders in the world will have and are more likely to have a trading plan. I would be surprised if they do not.  This trading plan can be an evolving plan which can be changed and adapted as situations change, knowledge improves, experience is gained, etc.
