PRT ALERTS WHEN PRO ORDER STOPS

Question

I found out a few weeks ago after I contacted IG that if you are live trading PRO ORDER by PRT and the system shuts down, because say IG have significantly increased the minimum stop requirements you are NOT warned of this at all - which is quite shocking to say the least. You are live trading a system with real money, it shuts down (for any number of reasons) and you do not know about it until you log in again !

I cannot understand why the PRT software does not incorporate this simple step i.e. system closes, send the user an email or SMS. I mean when you are trading real money and the system closes it could cost you a lot of money, if you were away for example you could be totally unaware till your return...I did email IG actually a few weeks ago and even they were surprised and said they'd forward this to PRT. But this could take ages to incorporate it into the new version. 

Again I am really surprised here !

Hi OSCARDAX

What you describe above re PRT sending an email is to be released very very soon.

It may even be in your Live Platform right now ... see attached.

Cheers

Hi @OSCARDAX, the feature @GraHal mentioned should be coming to IG PRT in the near future however I'm unsure exactly when.

Whilst it will be good when it does, even email is not 100% reliable and that's why there is a level of responsibility on the client to frequently check the state of their ProOrder strategies. As you said this is real money, so it's in your interest to do this.

If you are away you can phone up at any time and check whether any ProOrder trades have been rejected.

Cheers,

Will

Yes email and a push notice to the mobile app when systems stops would be an improvement

and if it was possible to open up/access proorder in the mobile app and using this to start and stop systems (and check performance and stopped systems)

it would be even better

GraHal, many thanks for that, yes hopefully on its way soon by PRT. 

I am ALWAYS (24/7)  in the market with my pro-order system. Hence the only way for my system to stop is generally if IG change the minimum stop required on say the DAX (which I trade) which conflicts with the stop 'set' on my pro-order. So I guess I would tick 'option 2'. 

Out of curiosity I cannot see this live on pro-order at the moment, where did you get that 'Position and order status after stop of systems' snippet from ? !

yes fully agree, i think you can stop pro order on your mobile app though ?

Hi Will, yes i fully agree and generally  I do check at the end of the day but technically I should not have to as my system is operating 24/7. Obviously there are always going to be times when you are abroad with a poor signal or say ill at home or any other odd event, an SMS and e-mail from PRT would really help.

Bottom line is that these are meant to be automated systems - if you have to keep checking them or any checking ANY automated system, it ceases to be 'automated' IMHO anymore ! 

Thanks - Oscar Dax

    • I want to believe that, even if we had viruses for many years and we lived with them like nothing happened, this one is killing more people than it should. At least is what reports are saying. That is why countries are forcing lock-downs. Think about that a lock-down is going to extend the furlough policies all over the world again. I don't think a government want to pay that money out to citizens if they don't have to, and companies are going to have to close business for good if we have a second lock-down everywhere. I agree with the statement that we had many corona-viruses before i.e. common flu, but why now governments are taking these draconian measures to force people into a quarantine? If we had the same dangerous viruses always around why are they now locking people at their homes. Did they not care about people before? I think the virus is way more deadly than they tell us and that is why people are not really that scared of it. If we had all the information that is available to professionals we would be really scared and people would lock themselves without waiting any government to tell them. My wife is Chinese and I get their news first hand. They are not reporting what is really happening since the very beginning and it is really hard to trust the Chinese government  on anything related to this virus. They still have the problem there, they keep locking entire cities down for short periods the minute they see anything. It is not reported here in the news but every week they lock people down at their homes.  This virus is really nasty and if locking people down is going to stop it, let's do it. 
    • I agree with 99% of this - the current strain is virtually exact to a strain found in 2012 by a group of Chinese scientists, then when 6 of them died from exposure the virus was sealed and sent to Wuhan I challenged David Icke  to prove the excess deaths were'nt excess deaths, from the info I looked into I'm satisfied the virus is genuine and I'm probably one of the worlds biggest sceptics  From a lock down point of view I'd of thought the perfect place to test out compliance of mass herds would be the USA - hasn't happened strongly enough for me to be concerned but it shown those that could create such circumstances how compliment most people are.  
    • Corona virus has been with us since forever we just never mass tested before. There are no extra deaths this year than any other and it's the same unfortunate types who die of corona virus every year (over 80's with pre-existing conditions 90% of cases). Corona virus is always circulating in the population most people being completely unaware and asymptomatic, herd immunity is built and the virus mutates or dies out. Tests just show you have been exposed to the virus at some stage which could have been months ago and you were most likely asymptomatic. Vaccines don't work for corona virus because they mutate very quickly which is why there is no vaccine for the common cold (a corona virus). And why flu shots don't work very often because they are based on the previous years dominant strain not the current year's (the mass manufacturing would be too late). Covid 19 has already been mutating and the last studies I saw several weeks ago confirmed that as usual a particularly nasty strain becomes less deadly with each new mutation. Another 30,000 people will die next year from respiratory infections as it's the 5 year rolling average (covid 19 or not), weather it'll be covid 19 next year or another strain no one knows but they will keep the covid ball rolling anyway. So all in all it looks like lockdown til the end of time.
