Technical question ,Mackbook with Chrome lagging the charts


Lucifer

Question

My 2016 Macbook 13" CPU i5, 8gb is lagging the charts(10 tabs open) in chrome recently, iv checked consumption 5gb ram(out of 8gb) and 20% CPU so where is the issue ? shockwave, java in Chrome?

I have reinstalled Chrome but doesn't help.

Does it need more ram? firefox maybe will be better ?

Is it IG platform only optimized for windows ?

I keep the computer very clean.

btw Safari doesn't display the charts fully so I can't use it, why not IGindex ?

Any ideas ?

I don't really use indicators , just support resistance, and I've got 10 tabs open, I got feeling that chrome with java has some limitation, my cpu usage max 30% and ram 5.5gb out of 8gb.........can anybody from IGindex give some advice and opinion on that ?

Thx Caseynotes  for the reply.

 

btw: my windows 7 with 2core and 4gb was running better

I think we all know by now that the server that serves the charting at IG is slow it's not the No1 browser in the world Chrome and clearing your cask etc is just a waste of time so is reinstalling flash on your machine as IG is online not on your computer.

Hi 

 

 

I didn't realise you sent an email as well about this which I have replied to and so do check your inbox as I would like to do what I can to help you with regards to this issue. Once we have addressed the issue we can add the solution to this community post. 

 

So that everyone knows our platform, as you can imagine, has been extensively tested to operate on all popular operating systems and so the issue of lagging on a Mac is not expected behaviour. We also do recommend using Chrome as the browser of choice as this is what we have found to have the best performance with the IG platform. Also just so you know the charts that are in the IG platform are powered by flash. 

 

Usually if a problem is reported about the performance of the charts or platform we would recommend to clear the browsing history as well as clearing the flash cache. 

 

Should anyone have any platform issues please see the link below which is a video (of yours truly) going through some key troubleshooting steps.

I hope that helps!

    • Hey @pravid17 I hope you're well.  In the leveraged trading industry there are brokers who don't hedge client's exposure and brokers (like ourselves) who do hedge client's exposure.  In a perfect world the exposure of short clients would net off the trades of long clients however this is not always the case. Our hedging model allows us to take an exposure in the underlying market for the remaining exposure which doesn't offset - This way we don't need to hedge every trade, worry about profits of our clients and results in lower costs for hedging in the underlying market (commissions, interest etc.). So say 60% of IG customer exposure in the ASX was long and 40% of exposure on the ASX was short. The 40% would net each other off but there's a remaining 20% of customers who need to be hedged to cover their positions. We go into the market and hedge this.  We make our money primarily through our spreads and overnight funding  with other fees making up a small proportion of our revenue. I would like to remind also that IG is regulated by several bodies globally, including top-tier regulators like the UK's FCA, Germany's BaFIN, Australia's ASIC - This should be quite reassuring from a dealing execution and transparency perspective.  I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other question 
    • A survey from Reviews.org, which featured 1000 Americans, found that as many as 1 in 4 US subscribers may quit the service in the next year.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 23 September 2022  There was an interesting breakdown, but the main reason was affordability. Only 18% said they would move to a cheaper competitor. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the numbers. Netflix subscription woes Netflix Inc (All Sessions) could be in for a rough time ahead over the next 12 months if a new survey is anything to go by, which was conducted in the US. Out of the 1,000 adults that took part in this survey undertaken by Reviews.org, around 25% of those that were covered said that they would be cancelling their Netflix subscription within the next 12 months. Now, it says with that 25% of US subscribers to Netflix considering leaving, not to join a competitor, but mostly because of pressures on household bills. This is how it is split: rising cost of subscriptions - 40% inflation - 20% a lack of content - 22% spending more time on the services of others - 18% So you can see, a minority said they were going to other services, such as those provided by Disney Plus or Amazon Prime. The cost of Netflix has risen dramatically this year as its basic plan increased by 11% in January and its other plans by 20% to 25%. Now these were the first price increases for three years, so that itself is relatively new for a lot of subscribers. Netflix share price Let's take a look at the Netflix share price. You can see on the far left hand side of this chart the COVID lows at $290.39. We saw a whacking great increase there of 141% to the top and the record high in Netflix shares back in November 2021. And that was when subscriptions were rising, people were paying more for their services, and it was all humming beautifully. And then all of a sudden people started questioning the numbers of streaming services they were undertaking with some deciding to withdraw from Netflix. All of a sudden the big drops started coming through with profit warnings and sales warnings. We've recently hit a new low of $162.50. Since then there has been a little bit of an increase. We're currently trading at $232.75, but we are down by a margin of 1.75% in today's session, which reflects this news that we could well see a relatively large drop in subscribers for Netflix in the US within the next 12 months.
