ProRealTime Fees and Small Accounts

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I have been using a DEMO account for a while and I would like to progress to a Live CFD account.

My strategies use PRT Autotrading and I would like to know what IG determines to be  "extremely low value"  when they state what kind of account can use PRT without fees. My system is used on 15 min charts so the number of trades per month should not be a problem. However I will be using single contracts on EURUSD Mini so my positions will not be very big.

From the website:

How much does ProRealTime cost?

As an IG client, you get access to ProRealTime for free for your first month. Professional clients get free access for three months. Following that, you can continue to access PRT charts at no extra cost if you transact at least four times in a given month.

If you don't meet this requirement, or your trading activity is of extremely low value, then a £30 per month fee will apply on the last day of every calendar month.

Has anyone got any ideas please? I called them and I was told that non-professional users do not get free access but the web site states it is free if more that 4 trades per month and trading activity is not of "extremely low value"

 Many Thanks

Hi @Piston_Broke, whether or not the fee applies seems to be calculated very much on an account by account basis. Given that you have already spent time developing a strategy on the demo it's probably worth trialing and see. It's likely that if IG deem it 'extremely low value' they will tell you that if you continue to use PRT then the fee will apply, but even if they charge without notice it would seem worth the £30 just to find out.

I think PRT will not charge you a monthly fee but I strongly recommend you NOT to use PRT's auto trading with real money. It's faulty and will sooner or later loose your money because of platform errors. When this happens PRT will not compensate you stating you were using it on your own risk.

It costed me over 1500 USD to find this out. Use IG's API instead. This works stable and you will only lose your money because of your bad strategy and not because of platform errors. 😉

    • This content is based on my personal opinion and not a financial advise for readers hence ensure you DYOR before investing. Resources: https://www.odaily.news/en/newsflash/380143 No doubt memecoin has seen tremendous adoption over the last 6 with more capital inflowing into the memecoin sector. The artificial intelligence sector and RWA sector is another sector that looks promising but the crazy gains recorded from memecoin in the first quarter of the year might have been the reason for investors to shift their focus to memecoin.  With BTC only managing 48% gain since the beginning of 2024, tokens like WIF, PEPE and floki surged by 1300%, 815% and 392% respectively. Among the top 10 tokens, BGB the native token of Bitget was the only exchange token to find it's way up returning 100% to investors in 6 months. While the second half of the year hold a lot of promise due to anticipation of BTC post halving bullrun, a lot of investors are looking to invest in a tokens with decent ROI potential and memecoin looks the best option to many. Not disputing the crazy gains that might comes with investing in memecoin, the risk of losing it all is also higher especially investing in new memecoins. Considering the continuous growth, expansion and ecosystem development of Bitget, BGB holds a great potential with minimal risk compared to memecoin. Additionally, the entry point is still very great for both new and old investors. What sectors do you think will lead in the bullrun proper? Will memecoin still lead the year or will AI, Gaming, RWA pull a surprise. Share your thoughts.
    • Yeah! I think I would have to agree with you on this as I have benefited a lot from the event this recent times & I have plans of leveraging the event for a long time.
