Although no one has commented on this post in a while I can see that it still actually receives a significant number of views on a monthly basis. Therefore I thought I would give an in depth run down of a few primary issues of charts not loading on a number of our platforms. 

 

The new IG desktop trading charting package 

The majority of charting issues which used to effect the IG charts have been resolved in the new desktop trading platform which we provide. You can select this in the My IG section, and because it's based on HTML5 (an updated and modern offering over flash) you will also see significantly better functionalities and customisation. The following troubleshooting methods may help.

 

  • Check our platform status page just in case there is a known issue.
  • Try and open IG ia a different browser. If you're using chrome, try IE for example. If you're still experiencing issues it's likely something related to your internet connection or your computer. As a side note we generally recommend Google Chrome.
  • Clear your browser cache making sure to select to do so 'from the beginning of time'. 

However, you may also need to go through the following troubleshooting methods if you are on the older flash charts to clear 'flash cache'. This will be specifically for 'Chrome' however other browsers may have a different method.

 

  • Click on the 'secure' or 'IG Group Ltd' green text in the URL bar.

  • Select 'site settings' and then make sure you have switched flash to 'always on'.

  • Clear your Flash cache by clicking on this link and selecting ‘delete all sites’ in the website settings storage panel towards the top of the screen

 

My charts aren't loading on MT4

More often than not this is experienced by new MT4 users who are unfamiliar with the software. 

 

  • Make sure you are connected to the correct servers and have an active connection (in the bottom right hand corner). For reference the servers are mt4.ig.com:443
  • Right click on the list of markets on the left and slick 'show all' to make sure all markets are visible. 
  • Simply click, hold down, and drag your market into the 'waiting for update' screen. Your market should load. 

 

My charts aren't loading on Pro Real Time

Make sure you're aware of the minimum requirements for PRT. This is listed on their website, and states...

Hi ,

 

Sorry to hear you are experiencing issues with the charts. The charts use Flash player to run, and it may be that this is being blocked from running. Have you tried loading the platform with Google Chrome, as this has Flash built in? Alternative you can try and clear your Flash player cache using the following steps:

 

  1. Close your web browser.
  2. Click on the Apple logo in the upper, right-hand corner of your screen and choose "System Preferences"
  3. Click on the "Flash Player" icon near the bottom of the System Preferences window.
  4. Under the "Storage" tab, click on the "Delete All" button.
  5. On the next window, make sure the "Delete All Site Data and Settings" option is selected and unselect the "Delete All Audio and Video License Files" option.
  6. Click the "Delete Data" button.
  7. Close the System Preferences window.
  8. Open your web browser.

Do let us know how you get on!

Hi 

 

Sorry to hear they're not working!

 

Might seem like an odd suggestion, but are the time, date and region settings correct on your Mac? If they're wrong, it can cause problems.

 

Also, could you try a different browser? If using Safari, try Chrome and vice versa.

 

Let me know how you get on!

    • US DOLLAR TALKING POINTS: The US Dollar has dropped by as much as 3.3% from the high that was set last Wednesday and many are asking if the USD has topped. Given how aggressively overbought the greenback had become, this retracement looks to be a correction in the trend with no evidence yet of anything larger. However – price is approaching some major supports and performance around those levels will be key for determining near-term strategy. Of particular importance is the fact that the US Dollar is a composite of global currencies so the bigger question is when sell-offs in EUR/USD or GBP/USD might return and, in a related item, how will USD/JPY hold up with the pair pegged to the 145 level thought to be the line-in-the-sand for Japan’s Ministry of Finance? Oct 4, 2022 | Full article on DailyFX James Stanley, Senior Strategist
    • EUR/USD and GBP/USD edge up while USD/JPY falters at ¥145.00 again A pause in the dollar rally sees USD/JPY stuck below recent highs, but both the euro and sterling have made gains in early trading against the greenback.    Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 04 October 2022  EUR/USD rebound continues After falling to a twenty-year low last month, the euro continues to rebound against the US dollar with EUR/USD. This still looks very much like a counter-trend bounce that sees the price head back to the 50-day simple moving average (SMA), currently $1.1018 and then begins to falter. This would be in line with previous bounces since April, all of which have found it impossible to hold above the 50-day SMA. This move could see the price head back to $1.01. Further targets lie at $1.02 and then $1.0374. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD recovers $1.13 The GBP/USD continues to defy the doomsters with a recovery above $1.13. Its own counter-trend bounce remains intact, and if previous bounces are any guide there is still some potential for upside, even if it only reaches the 50-day SMA. Like EUR/USD, the pound is still making lower highs and lower lows against the dollar, with the previous peak at $1.176 marking out the initial target for this bounce. Both stochastics and moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) have room to move up to support this move, but selling the rallies still appears to be the approach here for this downtrending market, although it looks like for now there is still a desire to push the pair higher in the short-term. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY stalls below ¥145.00 It does look like ¥145.00 is the ceiling in USD/JPY for the time being – repeated attempts to break higher have come to naught, despite the continued strength of the US dollar. Indeed, it is perhaps precisely that we need a pullback in order for the trend to revive. The pair rallied hard from the August-lows, and now sits at some distance from the 50-day SMA (currently ¥139.15). A pullback towards this level might ‘clear the air’, create a higher low and provide a springboard for fresh bullish momentum. Source: ProRealTime
    • FTSE, DAX and Nasdaq breaking higher as bulls return to the fold The FTSE, DAX, and Nasdaq are on the rise, as improved market sentiment helps drive stocks higher.    Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 04 October 2022  FTSE 100 rises back into key intraday resistance zone The FTSE 100 has enjoyed a relatively upbeat start to the week, with the index pushing higher after a decline into the 6763 support level (March low). This rebound has taken price up into the confluence of trendline and swing-high resistance, with the ability to break up through this point bringing greater confidence of a protracted period of upside. Should such a move come to fruition, we would be looking at a potential wider retracement of the sell-off from 7515. For now, keep a close eye out for a break higher from here to signal the beginning of a more positive period for this index. To the downside, a break below 6763 would be required to signal the beginning of another major leg lower. Source: ProRealTime DAX breaks through resistance as the bulls regain influence The DAX has been fighting back this week, with the gains seen yesterday bringing the index up through the first swing-high of 12138. The subsequent resistance level of 12322 has been broken overnight, with price now rising into the confluence of the 27 September high and July low of 12432. As such, we are building a more positive picture for the near-term, with a rise through 12432 bringing greater confidence that we will see the index retrace the wider sell-off from 13571. That coincides with the wider descending trendline that has been respected over the course of the year thus far. Source: ProRealTime Nasdaq on the rise from key support The Nasdaq has been on the rise since the Monday gap lower, with the initial move below 11036 being swiftly recovered. That 11036 level represents the bottom established in June, with yesterday’s early decline bringing about a two-year low. However, we are now utilising this low as a potential area of support to push higher, with price having moved up through the 11298 swing-high. We have another notable swing-high at 11548 worth watching, with a break above that point signalling the beginning of a wider rebound for this index. To the downside, a move back below the recent low of 10887 would be required to bring about a renewed bearish short-term view for the index. Source: ProRealTime
