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.

    • The pull-back is here - APAC brief 23 Jan
      The pull-back is here: The pull-back markets were waiting for – the one we inevitably had to have – has arrived. It’s risk-off across financial markets and the optimism that drove global stocks off their December lows has subsided. Relatively speaking, it’s been a day of significant downside, but nothing yet to warrant tremendous fear. It should be common knowledge, but it bears repeating: proper validation that global equities have truly established a recovery ought to be judged not by the latest high, but by where markets form their next low. The retracement which is apparently upon market participants now hands a golden opportunity to judge this market for what it truly is – have the bulls reclaimed their dominance, or have the bears lulled them into a trap, and now stand poised to assert further downside?

      The market’s rationale: A greater look at this subject and Wall Street’s price action later. In relation to the overnight sell-off, the rationale was as feeble as the one that got stocks to their recent peaks in the first place. It’s been chalked up to reduced positivity towards the trade-war, and renewed concerns about global growth. To begin with, very little data throughout the past week has provided a clear and substantial picture on economic growth. The boost in sentiment has come from geopolitical or monetary policy developments that was assumed to be supportive of the growth outlook – at some point in the future.  Some nice-noises made between the US and China in trade negotiations here, and a few dovish comments from a handful of US Fed speaker there, is what ignited the latest part of the risk-on rally.
