Oh I forgot to say ... I have no open positions / trade at all since 30 April 19 so the charges are a mystery ... good job it is my Demo Account!  But worrying and I need to know why nonetheless??

Thank You

Thank you, but I have no positions open nor any new trades since 30 April 19.

I think the charges I am incurring are due to the numerous rogue / phantom / orphan trades that were generated 28 to 30 April 19 when using PRT Platform and Auto-System trading.

If an IG Rep reads this ... how can i get these ongoing excess / erroneous charges deleted from my account please?

As this will be affecting lost of users, a good idea - to save IG time - would be to have a RESET button on the Demo accounts. Then we could reset our own Demo Accounts back to default settings.

I use the increasing (or decreasing! :) ) Funds figure on my IG Account as an easy / quick way to gauge if I am making money. My ongoing incorrect charges are wrecking this useful method!

    • Market Breakdown | WTI Oil, EURUSD, GBPNZD, EURAUDHere are the updates & outlook for multiple instruments in my watchlist.1️⃣ WTI Oil daily time frame️The market is trading in a long term bearish trend .After the last sharp bearish movement, the market is steadily recovering.Ahead, I see a major horizontal supply area.Probabilities are high, that the next bearish wave will initiate from there.2️⃣ EURUSD daily time frameAfter a breakout of a solid daily resistance, the market is preparing for its retest.Watch carefully the underlined zone and look for buying opportunities from there.3️⃣ EURAUD weekly time frameThe pair is currently approaching a weekly horizontal resistance cluster.Taking into consideration, that the pair is quite overbought, probabilities will be high to see a pullback from that4️⃣ GBPNZD daily time frameThe pair is currently retesting a broken neckline of an ascending triangle . As we discussed earlier, the trend line of a triangle and its neckline compose a contracting buy zone now.Chances will be high that the next bullish wave will initiate quite soon.For Additional confirmation use: Divergence Indicators
    • #CHFJPY: Classic Bearish Setup 🇨🇭🇯🇵   🔻CHFJPY has nicely respected a confluence zone based on a horizontal 4H resistance and a 0.5 retracement of the last bearish impulse.   The price formed a double top pattern on that and broke its neckline.   Probabilities will be high that the pair will drop lower soon. Goals: 141.172 / 140.363
