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.

    • Well Bitcoin broke $8k and is currently around the $7.5k price area. It is not looking good at all.  It seems my $6.3k - $6.6k price area which I think could be the bottom or this specific downward move looks more likely now. I mentioned this price area on Monday (a few posts above) and now I think unless there is some serious buying or spectacular news followed by some serious pumping and short covering then Bitcoin is heading towards this price zone. 
    • There are many different ways to trade and applying or adopting trend following principles is merely just one such way. Trading more frequently does not guarantee any more success but it can increase the chances of making more losses if you do not have a robust trading system that is based on a sound trading plan. Trend following does not have to involve regular or frequent trading. That is the beauty of it. You can merely wait until you identify a trend which you wish to trade. Of course they will not all be successful as the trend could reverse sharply against you, it could be a false trend (looks like a trend but not) or simply the volatility could stop you out.  Day trading really is for full time traders in my personal opinion unless you have an expensive automated system which has been tested rigorously or you are an exceptional trader which can consistently make profits on most days without gambling, hoping or relying on luck.  Trend following suits me based on the time I have available to trade. I accept it is not for everyone but I believe all trading includes an element of trend following. Just how much depends on your trading style and methodologies adopted. 
    • The 20, 50 and 100 DMA curves on the 'daily' timeframe are sloping upwards which is extremely bullish and this trend has been very nice indeed.  When I talk about 'Strongest Trending Assets' in my other threads then I am suggesting those that a lot of traders do not spot but they exist and are available not only to trade on IG's platform but one must be able to spot and identify them.
