PIA chart and autochartist



hi can someone help with the timestamp on those charts ,.when they are published because the on the signal screen they show up after the trade is already made and levels seems to be already accomplished,  so whats the point of getting signal after the fact or half way thru the fact.. i understand its a moving target but the published time stamp and uploaded time is too far apart,

Hi, are you referring to the community discussion surrounding the PIA posts, or the signals given on the IG Dealing platform as shown below? The ones in the platform have a shorter time frame so they're posted on IG as and when they are published by the third party providers, whilst the discussion points posted on Community are of longer time frames (for example weekly and monthly) and therefore aren't as necessary to push to the minute. These posts are also manually written so it takes a little longer to post.


The below, for example, was taken at 11.16, 6 minutes after the time stamp publish date.

Hi James 


Could you please explain  why the signal entry price on charts is 15525  at 06.23.The published time is 0.623.

Entry level is 15485.


There is a discrepancy of 40 pips .This a fraudulent , deceitful act , unless you can provide more information.Here are the charts with evidence.I may be wrong.


This is really pathetic and sick.

The price now is 15420  , so Pia will claim they lost  35 pips , but the customer will enter at 15530 (after spread), and will lose 85 pips at close out of 15485. A discrepancy of 50 pips.

Hi all. As with all things, if you do not understand something or would like further information of how a particular product works, please feel free to ask. Please note the following:


  • These are passive limit orders to open and have not been triggered at the time they are posted. As you stated, these would not be beneficial if they were simply posted in hindsight. 

Using the below (as shown on the IG platform) this particular trade went through the following actions.


  • Trade idea was posted at 06.23am - it explicitly states that "we look to buy" which is a forward looking statement. 
  • The trade isn't triggered until 08.10 when the market moved to the previously specified level.
  • 11.50 and the trade was closed out basis the pre-defined stop level. 

Any question, please ask.

IG, our clients and our principal firm at the time received every trade idea (including medium term) via email and so all of our calls can be verified.


During Q3 2017, we chose not to produce any medium term ideas so as we could improve our medium term model.


We are now directly regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and so are now also answerable directly to our regulator.

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
