HI everyone, 

Just received an email from IG yesterday notifying that my access to ProRealtime will be revoked come end April due to my "trading activity" 

I will therefore have to start paying for the software from May. 

It seems that 4 round turns is no longer the standard - I made almost 260 trades last year and on about 30 trades this year. I am by no meana high volume scalper but also not the standard longer term swing trader.

Anyone else had the same experience?

Thanks

They take into account the number of, and size of trades and as they must pay PRT for each user so they have a minimum limit of through put on the platform. The £30/month is still a lot cheaper than going direct to PRT which was about £50 if you really want to stay on PRT.

all relevant, but I do feel they should specify. Rather then make it 10 round turns or 20 rather than going back on the original terms.....

@GavinB,  PRT is a specialist charting package that pulls in a brokers pricing and dealing feed in a similar way to tradingview, so for charting they like to present themselves as having all the bells and whistles and indeed they do, whether or not you would make use of all the additional features is another matter. 

You can download the manual and take a look.

    • The mischievous amphibian who became a meme legend? Well, meet Apu, his wide-eyed, optimistic cousin, taking the internet by storm – and now, perhaps, the world of finance. Apu, also known as Peepo or Helper, is a kinder, gentler Pepe variant. Tired of the often-scammy memecoin scene, Apu (or rather, Apu's devoted community) decided to create something different: $APU, a "fairly launched, fully transparent coin" built by and for "all frens." Here's where things get interesting. $APU's narrative is one of resilience and community power. Fueled by the cryptocurrency community's enthusiasm, $APU was initially launched with the best of intentions. However, the dream took a nasty turn when the original developer pulled the rug – a disheartening scenario for many crypto enthusiasts. Today, $APU stands as a testament to community empowerment. It's a beacon of hope for projects facing similar challenges, a reminder that collaboration and resilience can transform setbacks into stepping stones. It's also worth noting that another community-driven memecoin, $MASSA, recently found a home on the Bitget exchange. Could this be a sign of things to come for $APU? What are your thoughts? Does Apu's story inspire you? Can a memecoin truly become a legitimate force in the volatile world of cryptocurrency? Share your thoughts and predictions in the comments below!
    • The price shown on the graph is the price after the IG's fee taken. That is the reason for discrepancy.
    • I am a relatively newbie. I have seen similar and also have seen automated closed position has a loss though the close price I have set was above the price I have bought. After about 6 months with a lot of mysterious losses though my closing price was above the opening price, I discovered this was because of the amount charged for opening/closing a position. This is right below BUY and SELL boxes on the right in very small font. This amount vary from  0.9 to 33 or more depending on the level of trading at the time you open or close. It also happens (god knows why it is set to be so, except that the trader is not watching) when there is a lot of buying and selling going on, like an important news has suddenly been out and the result was not the market expected. As a result, I delete all my automated BUY/SELL values before I stop trading for the day. Remember, the the software is set up to favor the IG, not the retail seller. That is why 70% or more end up in loss.
