Hi 

 

Thanks for pointing out these chart spikes. They were reported to our chart specialist on the technical desk for which these have been addressed. 

 

Should you notice any spikes in the future on the ProRealTime platform all you need to do is go to 'Help' and then select 'Technical support' and then in the dialogue box you can mention there is a chart spike and have it so that screenshots will be added. Once you select send report that goes to us directly and we will be able to get these anomalies corrected.

 

I do hope that helps and thanks again for bringing this to our attention!

Hi all, I noticed that the Top40 spiked by about 789 points at 16:52:06, a high of 47468 and closed back to 46679. Maybe I do not understand it properly, hence my question. If it is possible that the top40 can make such a huge jump in 1 second and return to its previous position, what would the effect be if I had (and fortunately I did not), limits or stops set within that range? Would it have triggered and closed my positions? Afterwards I checked the prices of approximately 25 of the top40 constituents (the largest contributors) and can not see any huge moves in their prices that could have triggered such a spike...? If it was not the constituents that caused the spike then what was it? Please help....

Hi 

 

The spike you see in the Top40 cash chart does indeed look to be erroneous. However after speaking to the Indices desk the spike reported was actually caused by the futures contract spiking and so this would mean this was caused by actual trading. 

 

I hope that helps!

    • Not impressed with IG initially - Online Chat went unanswered so I tried the phone and got the same result. I needed the answer quickly because I had a power cut at home and could not complete the 2 trades I needed before trading ended for the week. The first one had gone through so I still needed one more. My only hope was the hour that ASX would be open on Sunday night (UK) though it would already be Monday in Sidney! If anybody on here knew the answer they did not reply so I gave it a go and sold a few shares on ASX. IG's strength showed through immediately.  I was able to sell 40 shares for £2 which was a surprise (given the minimum trade in London is £90 unless it is closing a position). And the trade was timed as 28th Feb 23:30 hrs and , bless them, this morning I was offered a trade on aimat £3! Not their fault - but the stock I wanted issued a 7am RNS and thereare no shares available because it was well received!   I'd anticipated a rise which is why I wanted frequent trader status back after forgetting to keep it in December. IG are near perfect - they allow trades in my Share dealing account and ISA to be combined in the trading count, have not done it yet, but my stock on ASX can be held in my ISA (this is not true for every ASX stock - so please check with IG before you decide to use this).   I enquired when contemplating a Bed and Isa from my Share dealing account which has some ASX shares. The one small problem I have with them is the London office's handling of a share issue. I had a battle to order excess shares and still have no sign of my option shares which are available at a fixed price for 2 years! The Aussie office got it right and my options appear in my portfolio as expected. I just need the price to more than double to make the options worth buying on ASX , a 50% rise on AIM will do it.   Over and out - thread closed.
