Hi IG,

There appear to be some issues with the Indices on the Demo account.

hey all - Please note there are a number of bad prints on index charts today, including FTSE. Pricing has been unaffected. Apologies for any confusion this may have caused. 

Our teams are working on cleaning up the charts. In the meantime it should be fairly obvious which moves are incorrect. E.g. the 300-odd point drops here:



We are currently investigating the Spikes (Charts not showing correctly) issue on below affected Indices:

  • FTSE100
  • FRANCE 40
  • EU STOCKS 50
  • ITALY 40
  • SWEDEN 30
  • SPAIN 35
  • NORWAY 25

I have never used the Demo account but it would be useful for those wishing to help you / give you advice on what specific issues there appear to be with the indices.

All just completely off whack, showing Hong Kong 50 down 9.5%. I thought the world was ending when I logged on!

    • APAC brief - 21 Mar
      Market action proves it again: this market hinges on the Fed: The US Fed has proven itself as the most important game in town for traders. The FOMC met this morning, and lo-and-behold: the dovish Fed has proven more dovish than previously thought; the patient Fed has proven more patient that previously thought. Interest rates have remained on hold, but everyone knew that was to be the case today. It was about the dot-plots, the neutral-rate, the economic projections, and the balance sheet run-off. On all accounts, the Fed has downgraded their views on the outlook. And boy, have markets responded. The S&P500 has proven its major-sensitivity to FOMC policy and whipsawed alongside a fall in US Treasury yields, as traders price-in rate cuts from the Fed in the future.

      The US Dollar sends some asset classes into a tizz: The US Dollar has tumbled across the board consequently, pushing gold prices higher. The Australian Dollar, even for all its current unattractiveness, has burst higher, to be trading back toward the 0.7150 mark. Commodity prices, especially those of thriving industrial metals, have also rallied courtesy of the weaker greenback. Emerging market currencies are collectively stronger, too. This is all coming because traders are more-or-less betting that the Fed is at the end of its hiking cycle, and financial conditions will not be constricted by policy-maker intervention. Relatively cheap money will continue to flow, as yields remain depressed, and allow for the (sometimes wonton) risk-taking conditions that markets have grown used to in the past decade.
