Adobe Flash (SWF) Charts Deprecated When?

Question

I haven't been able to view charts on IG (share account) for probably a year or more now.

When will IG migrate them off the deprecated Adobe Flash interface and onto something which works with modern browsers?

@Mr-Yellow,

Wow, a year. That is terrible. I would not be able to trade without analysing the charts. Have you complained via IG's Customer Services?

Maybe there is a fix that IG could advise you on?

Have you rang them? If so what was their response?

The fix is to use a browser with Flash.

I'm going to avoid doing that. Just as the browsers themselves are.

I really hope they have a plan for charts when Flash goes away entirely.

 

edit: I assume they have the new CFD interface ready to go and will turn it on at some stage. I'd like to start using it now.

IG have supposedly been working on a updated new shares platform (html) for some time now, they had better get a move on as adobe are planning to withdraw the flash app sometime in 2020.

To me it at times seems that IG are 'reactive' rather than 'proactive' with matters such as these.

or probably more likely sidetracked, transfering from old to new platform, esma, knockout options, startup in the US ...

fair, however if there is a legitimate way to resolve this issue and you choose not to take it then that's really on you. But also yes I agree they should look to update.

 

EDIT: I didn't realise it was getting phased out so soon - good to know

Yes I have the same problem and tried all the fixes. I have abandoned using IG charts .... don't have these problems with other charting tools. It is very disappointing that IG do not help their clients .... when will their charts work as they used to?

    • We all know what the book says about a yield curve inversion, that a recession will follow 1 - 2 years after and that between the inversion will reverse back, bonds will be sold while stocks enjoy a brief rally before finally rolling over into a recessionary bear market, after all it's happened 7 times before so must be again right. Well not necessarily, previously the inversions have been deep and lasted several months, that hasn't happened yet. Also fore warned is fore armed and we already know the problem is this time, it's Trump trying to get China to play by the rules, oh and debt. The thing is that the bond market has changed radically in the last decade and longer, look at the long term chart of the 10 year bond yield below, falling steadily since the 1980's, with the 10 year being so low a 2/10 year yield inversion is much more likely under far less economic provocation. But what about the debt then, well it's clear Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) is becoming a 'thing' whether people call it or not. The Japanese have been doing something like it for years except going the long way round and printing money to buy bonds instead of just printing money. MMT says that so long as you don't borrow from outside and you keep inflation under control you can print the amount of money you need (see the MMT thread), Japan have been doing it for decades, the UK, US and EU started latter but doing it they are, the problem for the EU is that they have also been borrowing widely from outside. Central bank bond buying has distorted the bond market making yield inversions more likely, but less likely of an automatic recession to follow. Central banks will continue to print money anyway, the key is to control inflation, owing yourself money can be dealt with, it's owing other people money that's the problem. How will it all actually pan out, who knows, that's not a trader's concern, an investor might take a different view but they still won't know til it happens whatever 'it' is.   Chart 1: Yield dipping below the red line is inversion, the shaded columns are the recession periods that followed. Chart 2: The steady decline of the 10 year bond yield since the 1980's.   Chart 3: The 2 year bond yield retreating from recent highs.
