Auto Trading Issue

Question

Hi,

I have an issue with my auto trading system on pro real time. I have raised it with IG and PRT but thought someone may be able to help here.

The system had been working fine until 2 days ago.

The system places my stop orders and should delete the previous order if it hasn't been filled as it moves onto the next bar but this isn't happening as it should.

It seems to be delayed as I end up  with a heap of orders (sometimes up to 20) placed at the same price and then when I stop the system it continues placing and deleting orders as if it is trying to catch up.

Sounds really strange. Usually stop/limit orders in PRT's auto trading are only valid for the next bar. So if you don't repeat your order every bar again it should vanish after only one bar.

But this might be just another example why you shouldn't use PRT's auto trading with real money. It is a nice looking feature on the first glance but it is faulty and has many bugs that will sooner or later result in you loosing money if you try to run strategies live with it.

However PRT is quite nice for constructing custom indicators and also useful to make a fast backtest of an idea.

What timeframe? Seconds?

You could try delete the system from proorder and try again,

Tried all that. Uninstalling, writing new code, none of it helped. Just seems strange one moment it is working fine then the next it is dud.

Thanks for the suggestions. Exhale Trading may have a point though.

Hi JedandSteve,

I have also experienced very strange behaviour from PRT, using code which has been stable until a couple of days ago. Quite disconcerting with trades being taken out that did not need to be...

This is why I stopped using PRT. I had a strategy running live with great profit for more than 6 months without any problems. Then a platform error caused a loss of about 1500 USD. PRT refused to refund me for this loss though it was a bug in PRT that obviously caused the loss saying I used PRT on my own risk.

This is where I decided to leave and I never regret this decision.

    • Hi guys, I am wondering if you can help me calm my blood pressure. Just started learning how to trade and left a long position open by mistake today and did not manage to close - GBP/CAD. Is there any way to close it or minimise the risk of losing money. My account is not big at all but I am most worried about losing more and/or going on a negative balance.   Any suggestions?   Best regards!
    • @dmedin, I totally agree.  I want to see the so called experts on IG Community that know it all and have lots of knowledge, intelligence, wisdom and cannot be wrong 'people'  to prove this. They will not as they do not really want to help anyone on IG Community as they are selfish apart from sharing their posts, sharing links, sharing technical and complex information and everything BUT what people on IG Community are looking for. They then get defensive, abusive, rude and really turn the screw so that their real character comes out.  I am a bad trader. I have no knowledge. I have no experience. There you go. I am sure this will satisfy some on the IG Community. So those who do have knowledge, do have experience and think they are superior I would love them to response to @dmedin and demonstrate that they are profitable traders who consistently make profits year upon year and pay a lot of tax to their tax authorities as they obviously do not use the tax efficient advantage of spread betting. 
    • I would love to see anyone prove they were consistently profitable from trading over 12 months.  Such evidence is hard to come by.
