IG New Platform - Alerts Pop Up


GraHal

Question

Hello

Is it possible to configure Alerts so that there is no PopUp box at all?

Reason I ask is that the Alerts PopUp Box covers the Deal Tab and a vital few seconds is lost waiting for the PopUp to dissappear again before I can press Deal and direction etc!

In short the Alerts PopUp is very very annoying popping up in it's current position in the top right hand corner of the screen (as that is where the Deal button is!). 

Thanks

Hi @GraHal you can either do as @Caseynotes suggested or have the Notifications window constantly open as this will simply put each new notification at top of this feed and chart with deal buttons will be pushed to the left, unobscured:

Also don't forget that if you are waiting for a specific price point to enter a trade, you can always just use the 'orders' button rather than trying to deal off a price alert. 

I hope this helps, and I will ask @JamesIG to include this in the monthly feedback report.

The other thing is to resize the chart so that the top is an inch below full size as the alert pop up remains in the top corner of the browser page while the deal tab moves down within the chart. Not ideal and hopefully IG will introduce an option in the future but may be worth a try if it's really bugging you.

Thanks kivondo, but it's still a second or so when I want to be closing my open trade in that second.

Also I have at times had several Alerts stacked on top of each other and so clicking each x to close an Alert (when I desperately want to be setting direction on the Deal tab and pressing Place Deal) I find frustrating.

Also I don't even need /  want to read the Alert PopUp as I have heard the Alert noise and so my eyes go straight to the Chart and I am either wanting to open or close a Deal.

But I'll try closing the PopUps as you say if that is my only Option?

Can't believe PopUps are not configurable.

Why set an alert and then deal (frantically it sounds like given the fact you’re trying to smash it thru in a matter of seconds) rather than just place an order?

If I place an order and forget it then I can't see how / what the bars are like before getting to the Order level.  Price may just spike up / down (stop hunting), trigger my entry and then go the other way! 

If I set Alerts for price to rise or fall 6 points in 5 mins then I can see what momentum there is the latest few bars and also how these bars are sitting in the overall market structure since the last time I looked at the chart.

Also the smashing it in a few seconds (as you put it) may be me wanting to exit a trade that has gone against me.  If I set a stop level exit then I may just get taken out and then price bounce back again.

    • HI,  Please if any IG supporting staff can answer the questions below? 1. in the upcoming AMC/APE vote on 14 March 2023, can shareholder that hold AMC and APE at IG able to make a vote? I also have AMC and APE at IBKR and they did send out a notification to inform me that I can do proxy vote. Will IG do the same? 2. the upcoming vote is to determine APE covert back to AMC then do reverse spilt. Last year after APE issued, IG staff told me that they have to move APE to share dealing account from my ISA account as ISA is not eligible to hold APE (which is completely unbelivable, my APE at AJ Bell and HL are still sitting in ISA account). Anyway, if the conversion and reverse spilt is going to happen, will IG move my APE back to ISA account for the corporate action? Many Thanks
    • The epidemic in recent years has produced profound changes in people's lifestyles, and many of their activities have started to be developed in the virtual world, which plays an important role in promoting the development of the universe of meta. Games, as an important part of the universe of meta, will be the first industry to gain the benefits , but the following conditions are still indispensable for blockchain games to achieve better development.   - Wallets and Exchanges. Through the use of wallets, game users can truly take control of the assets in the game, and exchanges provide a trading platform and liquidity for these game assets NFT, helping users trade and revitalize their game assets. Wallets are a key application for depositing blockchain assets. Currently, wallets such as Metamask are not enough to support the extensive adoption of block games, and wallets will further advance community drive the popularity of blockchain games.  - Game playability. The biggest difference between blockchain games and traditional games is that gamers are also investors. Many blockchain games have gone out of course, treating all users as investors only and forgetting that the essence of making games is to develop high-quality games that users are interested in paying for. If most people play a game just to make money, and no one is ready to pay for it, it becomes a side-scam. The revenue of the participants of the side scam comes from the money of the people who come later, and if there are not enough people who come later, they will not be able to cash in the revenue, leading to the breakdown.  - Speed and performance. A high level of concurrency is the characteristic of game applications, so Wax, Coinan Chain and Polygon, which are public chains with a high level of concurrency and low fees, have attracted a large number of game developers. In the future, with the maturity of technologies such as Ethernet Layer 2 and slice scaling, as well as the maturity of other gaming public chain technologies compatible with EVM, blockchain games will have a better development and operation environment.  - Cross-chain and interaction. Cross-chain and interaction of game assets will be a direction of future development of metaverse games, and blockchain should be connected and accessible like the Internet. The maturity of cross-chain technology in the future will promote the cross-chain transfer of game assets and NFT, and improve the interaction experience of the system                                                                                     The game should maintain the operation of the project by relying on the payment of some users or selling profitable products, just like the new blockchain game Fairy Cat in 2023, which developed diverse gameplay for players and increased the playability of the game, thus got the recognition of many players. Blockchain games need to work hard on game experience and playability. Token economics is essentially just a kind of interest structure , and even good token economics cannot replace the development, operation and profitability of the project itself. It is believed that with the maturity of the above conditions, more and more game developers and investors will enter this industry and together promote the production of some blockchain games with beautiful graphics, first-class experience and high playability.
    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
