Charts frozen after windows update

Question

Hi all,

I had a windows update 2 days ago and now when I open the charts they do not move.

They open normally but then there is no candle movement.

The platform page is showing price movements so I don't think it's a flash problem.

This happened a few years ago but I cannot remember what the solution was.

Any advice please?

Thanks

Hi, check for additional fixes on this page such as clearing cache.

Thanks for the reply Caseynotes,

I have cleared the cache and run Ccleaner and it is the same.

The chart works if I left click on it and it opens in the main platform page but when I right click and "open in a new window" it just sits there frozen like a screenshot.

I noticed that in the top right corner of the chart when in new window mode there is a notification that says "This page was prevented from setting cookies".

I don't know if that is relevant to the problem but I went onto settings and checked that cookies and notifications are allowed from IG.

Thanks again for your help

Hi, yeah I think you need to allow third party cookies as well IG's as the charts use data from another company.

see this post pictured below.

🙂 While very nice of you to be thanking Herald John I hope you're not forgetting who it was who remembered the post and found it amongst the 36,000 others?

Besides, I'm desperate for one more like 😢

    • Hey @dmedin. That news piece is something I long suspected. If anyone can move the market with just one tweet then why shouldn't the cronies profit from it. I'm just surprised this has taken so long to get to the "news".
    • Ok, so I took this approach to the next level. Rather than telling the algorithm enter long at 25% and enter short at 75% levels, I decided to let the algorithm decide itself at what levels its best to enter short or long. This simplifies the strategy and boosts its gains dramatically. Top level stats over 100,000 5min candles: Gain: +1,307% % of winning trades: 60% Starting with a £2000 account, after 1 year and 1 quarter that account would have grown to almost £30k (£28k). The equity curve looks also a lot more stable, too. I resolved the issue with the lot size, this is now a formula. Unfortunately we still have 3 negative months, but overall the max runup is a lot higher than the max drawdown. Overall time in market is only 20%, so there should be the opportunity to run multiple of this strategy on different assets simultaneously to further boost the return. If let's say 3 of these programs could run simultaneously and deliver similar results you could grow £2000 to £100k within about 18 months. Still not as good as the results of the few world-class top traders like Ross Cameron from Warrior Trading, etc but a start nonetheless. The variables which the program optimised are the following: Take Profit for Long Positions: 84 points Take Profit for Short Positions: 70 Points Entry LvL for Long Positions: 23 Points below the low of previous day Entry LvL for Short Positions: 7 Points below the high of previous day Interestingly, it turned out the strategy works best without a set stop-loss, but just to close out any open positions at 21.00 o'clock at night, if not already closed by the take profit rule. I'm gonna simulate this on NASDAQ next. Obviously will need to find out the 4 variables again, as these will be subject to the Index where this is traded.   What do you guys think? Worth a shot this strategy?  
    • Lool, I'm sorry for my first post here, but it's funny :)
