Is meta trader 5 roadmapped to be supported by IG? Would be great is you could as meta trader 5 allows for browser access rather than software so I can get it on my Mac. Thanks.

Also interested to know if there are plans in favor of MT5 on IG's side

Metatrader 5 is a must have for me.

As long as IG don't support MT5 i will not change my Trading Provider.

So is there any timeline for MT5?

Thanks for your post. 

It is an area we are actively looking. We aim to deliver a high quality offering and so will be dedicating time into researching best practice for MT5. If all goes well we could see something later this year but with the amount of moving parts to this it may be too early to say.

MT4 has all kinds of bugs, with historical data and testing, so MT5 is a must.  This time, please do not brand MT5 with IG. I hate it when business do this! Just give us grown-ups instructions on how to hook up our favourite products.  Thanks.

I've created an account type forex-sgd for IG-DEMO on metatrader, everything works well on the desktop version but when I logged in to my phone, i can't trade (trade option missing). I have already add symbol C-Forex-SG as instructed but the trade option still did not appear. Appreciate an advice. Thank you.

When is IG going to start offering MT5 on its platform? IG must consider this very seriously  because clients are switching to MT5 now from MT4. I even know clients who are leaving or reducing their trading activities with IG because the company doesn’t offer MT5. IG has to quickly embrace  and adapt to new technological changes if the company want to exist in trading in the long run

Yeah MT5 is super important for me. MT4 is so slow backtesting and placing trades. What is the status of IG supporting MT5 in 2021?

@CharlotteIG Do you have an approximate date for MT5 now? Thank you in advance. 

Unfortunately not. I've spoken to the team dealing with this and as soon as I have an update I will let you know. 

All the best

    • ATR are a good starting point for a stop, but you will need to adjust it based on local support/resistance levels.  If you putting a stop within 1 ATR of the open price, you will get stopped out by market noise. 
    • YES - If it works for the trade then yes and for trailing too Best thing you can do is look at your proposed trading method - calculate its win ratio expectancy etc and also visually SEE what price bars do when it works When traders don't know what exactly their method does/doesn't do - they have wide stops, which eats profits It all depends on the trading method - for example if you're catching reversal points/turns in the market then if you're right the market will NOT trade past the swing low/high point, so that's where your stop would go at worst case Trading the reversals in an uptrend - WHAT WILL THE MARKET NOT DO IF YOU'RE RIGHT? It won't trade BELOW the majority of swing low points So for that strategy placing a stop any lower than the prev swing low just doesn't make sense - so a stop using ATR multiples might not be that good/clever on that type of strategy - but buying breakouts using a ATR multiple might be This is trailing 20 period ATR of a factor of 2 (multiple of 2) So you need to decide on the trading METHOD, work out what it DOES and then BUILD - Entry, Stop, Trailing etc to the method when it works As you can see in the example above if you wanted to catch the big trends then you'd need to use a bigger multiple/factor of the 20 period ATR or you could just BUY when price moved up through the ATR line Good luck  
    • Announcement - GraniteShares 3x Short Tesla ETP Dear IG traders, GraniteShares would like to inform you about our decision to consolidate the GraniteShares 3x Short Tesla ETP (3STS). For every 1,500 ETPs owned, investors will receive 1 new ETP in exchange. Investors already invested in 3STS will own fewer ETPs than before the consolidation but the Value per ETP will be proportionally higher. As a result, there will be no impact on the value of your investment. If the consolidation results in any fractional securities, they will automatically be redeemed in cash. The record date for the consolidation will be on 14th May 2021 with the consolidation date effective on 17th May 2021. Proceeds linked to fractional ETPs are expected to be transferred to the clearing systems on 19 May 2021. Please note it may take a few days for the payment to be received. GraniteShares believes it is in the investors’ interest to keep ETP prices within efficient trading ranges, and to try and avoid situations where ETP prices become too low or too high. GraniteShares will not charge any commissions or fees related to the consolidation of securities or disbursement of the payments if fractional securities are involved. Please refer to the following link for more information: https://graniteshares.com/institutional/uk/en-uk/research/3sts-reverse-split-effective-17-may-2021/ In case of any additional questions, please let us know.
