Tearoff charts and tickets not updating

Question

Posted (edited)

The tearoff charts and tickets are not updating when using the web based platform via Chrome (i always use tearoff charts), this is not good as the charts within Workspace are laggy when trying to apply indicators or move drawings/text labels.

I originally reported this ~ 09.30 BST 20th Aug and Support suggested that i was only one to report this problem and I should uninstall Chrome then reinstall to see if this fixes, I felt like I was not being taken seriously and couldnt believe anyone else had not experienced same issue or reported the same problem !

I didnt uninstall/reinstall Chrome as i was very aware that IG Support would not offer support should this action cause other issues with my set-up but later same morning i proved that the same issue was happening on 3 different machines, all using web based platform on both live and demo accounts.

Has anyone else experienced tearoff charts/tickets not updating in Chrome and how have you overcome this ?, yes I could use the charts within Workspace but as said above these are too laggy, I have now waited almost 48 hrs for a formal response from IG !

Hi, I'm presuming you're meaning the old platform and just looked and the tear off chart was fine and updating the live price without problem but did see that chrome is now blocking Flash rather than just re-setting to 'ask' which won't load properly so needed to set to 'allow'.

I'm using new platform and only ever used new platform, I've cleared Cache but no difference, I've checked flash settings for the main Chrome window/tab and all other opened windows/tabs and Flash is 'Allowed' but still not working !

Usual workspace window opens with www  address of https://deal.ig.com/wtp#/workspace/****************************  (this bit probably particular to my account so not shown)

All Tearoffs open from www address

 https://deal.ig.com/wtp#/tearoff/market/IX.D.FTSE.DAILY.IP market specific.

I believe this is an issue with the tearoff element of the www server but then I'm no expect but pay my spread to IG to sort things out like this !

Oh ok, I didn't know they had tear offs on the new platform. New platform doesn't use Flash so must be something else,

Still working ok here though, updating fine, and yes, opens in a new window as per your url above, see pic below

Nope you are not the only one. I've had this problem all week and I'm sick of it. Can't trade like this. 

I can open the charts in the NEW platform and sometimes it updates for approx 5-30 mins and then stops updating. I am constantly logging out and back in to try get it started again.  

I've been using Chrome for years and it's been great but this week, it's just not updating charts for long. I've done all the normal stuff we get told... delete cache/cookies, allow third party cookies etc, allow flash (not that it's needed in the new platform). Something has happened in the last week and I'm surprised it's just us complaining about it. 

The only temporary fix, that sometimes lasts a few hours, is to use Firefox instead of Chrome but even then it just stops updating at some point. You may get 6 hours plus on firefox before it stop working randomly and you start losing money because the charts like fine but are tanking or moving without your knowledge. 

 

- I have tried using 2 different computers and I get the same thing. Both are using Windows 7 and both up to date. 

- I have tried logging in on 2 different Optus networks at separate locations, using NBN and cable. I have also used a Vodafone network and same problem. 

 

I should also note, it's just the charts not updating. I'm using the OLD platform to do my actual trades and the prices and tickets are fine and updating in real time. I like to use the charts on the NEW platform and they are the problem at the moment. If it wasn't for the OLD platform I wouldn't even realise that the new platform price/candles are not moving until it's too late.  I can't trade like this and will probably stop any day trading / short term trading until this gets fixed. 

- This happens at least once a year (in the past Flash problems) and lasts usually a few days but it's been way longer this year. This also happened in May when Optus had an Australian wide issue and effecting all overseas traffic. Heaps of gamers were complaining at the time too. I thought it may be a similar issue again with Optus but I get the same problem when using Vodafone internet. Like the OP said, it may have to do with Windows update but I don't know. 

If anyone else has this issue, please speak up so IG can do something about it. They wont do anything about just two people complaining. I'll wait days or weeks until this sorts itself out otherwise.

It may have to do with the Windows update mentioned in another thread but I don't know.

Sorry for the double post above, I tried to edit the "Window Update" part as it was a separate thread and not OP complaining about that. I don't have any third parties being blocked. Checked and confirmed they are not being blocked.

Trading profitably is difficult enough. One needs a platform that works reliably.

I found that a position was showing a substantial loss on my screen, although it should have stopped out. The stop loss had, in fact, operated but my screen had not updated. I had to phone IG to find this out.

This was not an isolated occurrence. IG need to get the bugs out of their trading software.

    • 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 :)
