New Platform: No DMA

Recommended Posts

I don't understand the point to the new platform if there is no DMA. This is what separated IG markets from other cfd providers. Why was DMA not carried over to the new platform? After all you cannot participate in opening and particularly closing auctions to get the days closing price?


I like using the new platform however if I want to trade I have to switch back to the old platform; so the new platform for me and I believe so many others is good only for searching: stock charts etc. I can use the new platform for indicies trading (ASX 200, US 30 etc.) because that is OTC in both the old and new platforms.

Hi all - Currently we do not have DMA functionality on the new platform. The old platform was slowly built over the course of over a decade, so migrating all functionalities simultaneously is quite difficult. We will of course be aiming to move over everything, however at present you would still need to use the classic / old platform.

    • The bulls are coming back: APAC brief 21 Jan
      The bulls are coming back: Traders received the greenlight to jump into risk assets on Friday. It culminated in a substantial jump across global equities and a certain “risk-on” attitude to trading. The impetus was arguably more technical than fundamental. The boost in sentiment in being attributed mostly the leaked news that Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin was planning to lift US tariffs on China. Whatever the motive, nefarious or simply untrue, that story was quickly denied by the White House. However, it signalled enough to the market that progress was being made in trade war negotiations. That extra fuel to this recovery’s fire supported a push above very significant technical levels in Wall Street indices, attracting buyers and further validating the view that the December sell-off is behind us.

      The stock market’s biggest fan: There’s one market participant who is apparently willing that notion to be true: US President Donald Trump. The US President obviously uses the stock market’s performance as a measure of his success – rightly or wrongly. And over the weekend, amidst the very many Tweets that were Tweeted by Trump, this one outlined his view on the US economy and stock market: “the Economy is one of the best in our history, with unemployment at a 50 year low, and the Stock Market ready to again break a record (set by us many times)…” Quite a pledge to make – and one markets participants aren’t going to take too seriously. Regardless, it does provide a perversely comforting story for markets, to know that the US President is wishing this market higher.
