Price delayed on charts

Question

Hi, 

Within the last hour, a box with a message appeared on my charts (new web platform) to say that the price on the chart was delayed and directed me to deal elsewhere (it disappeared before I could read it fully). It gave no explanation for the delay though.

I've never seen this before. Has anyone else experienced this and/or knows the reason for it?

Many thanks.

Hi @Trader126,  I suspect this may have something to do with IG suddenly being unable to give level 1 or derived prices and having to fall back on delayed prices, assuming you were looking at equity markets. I'm not sure why that would be, a sudden dramatic change in liquidity perhaps. (see screenshot and link)

Hi @Caseynotes, thanks for your response. This was on a 5m EUR/USD chart (apologies, I should've included this in my original post).

Hmmm. ?

Hi @Trader126 I have seen something like that before on third party platforms when there has been a temporary disconnect from IG, very rare and only lasting a few seconds, but not to my recollection on the IG platform though could happen I suppose, presume back to normal now.

Maybe that's what it was then. As far as I was aware, my internet connection was okay and when I checked the IG status page (https://status.ig.com), all systems showed as operational. I've not seen the message since and my charts seem live today. If it happens again I'll update this thread.

    • trading US small cap gappers as per ross cameron, here's the thread, what a ******* disaster that was.  
    • sounds like you have been suckered in by that scammer ross cameron of warrior trading 🤕
    • neither SB nor CFD are linked to the exchange unless you are dealing through the DMA platform and even then you are still dealing through IG. you are taking a bet on a move in the market, someone must cover that bet, who? it can only be either another buyer/seller or IG. you can't get filled if no one takes the other side of the bet, WHO? it can only be an other trader or IG and as I've already said it's obviously not IG or you would have got your fill automatically.
