Hi @Slater,  IG shut down all the platforms every Friday evening, was about 10 pm - now seems to be about midnight UK time for about 4 hours for security updates etc.

I'm thinking the helpdesk and dealing desk are also closed over Friday evening til 8 am Saturday in the UK. Check your country's times in 'Contact Us' page.

Hey Guys,

The issue I have is not being able to input orders on the new platform on  Saturday & Sunday (13 & 14 Oct).

The message on the order input screen comes up as "This market is not open to trade"

We don't want to trade. We just want to input a bunch of orders.

To get around this I put my orders through the old platform and it worked fine.

Go figure.

Regards

Hunj

Hi @h7, on the new platform if you have the 'Deal' ticket selected you will get "This market is not open to trade"

but if you switch to the 'Order' ticket you will not get the notice and should be able to place the order.

Maybe it depends on the particular market but I just had an order accepted on FTSE.

    • yes, with Renko you are changing from time based charts to price based and so remove a lot of noise and smooth out  the price action hopefully giving a clearer picture.
    • The twitter bears are taking a lot of flak at the mo and with good cause, especially the likes of Edgeye and Zerohedge who called a recession in 2015 and were wrong so they just repeat the call every year since in the expectation of being right eventually. Amusingly enough many traders have build this psychology into their trading plan, imagine anyone trying to continually short a bull market for 5 straight years, and yet as I've pointed out for years using the sentiment data of IG clients short/long positions that's exactly what many have been trying to do. Here's the thing, you don't need to guess, a chart will tell you if it's bearish. As Chris in the podcast above says, a market making new all time highs just can't be anymore BULLISH, there is only one way to go. So if the chart lines up with the macro and both are clearly bullish 'buy high and sell higher'. Do yourself a favour and spend the 50 minutes to listen to the podcast, you will learn something.  
    • Final hours of trading put in some bearish candles that may be a precursor to a period of bearish retrace if the 1H channel is broken on Monday.  If it does I will be expecting an A-B-C form retrace that may retest several support levels before a resumption of the long term Bull.  This is an opportunity to buy in lower, but patient is needed, it may take some time to evolve.  I have a cheeky Short in place...
