Flash no longer supported.

Question

With the advent of the notifications in our browsers informing us that Flash is going to be discontinued in 2020, I'd like to know how far away IG are from moving away from the outdated technology, like they probably should have done sometime in 2009.

It's insecure, slow and generally a nuisance.

IG, how far away are we from not having to deal with this relic? Hopefully sometime before it's completely deleted.

yes, could do with some guidance on this, @JamesIG, or someone, as it is starting to cause issues. Chrome now defaults to blocking Flash. Which is annoying, and not everyone uses machines with admin permissions so unable to download alternative browsers. 

Just tried Opera and Firefox but machine permissions restrict ability to install alternatives.

@Djelibaybi is this for CFD / Spreadbet? The new platform is not based on Flash in case you're still using the old one...

Hey all - we're looking to have the new share trading platform available very early on in the new year. Thanks for the interest, we'll make sure to update all clients leading into the event.

Will we have trailing stops on the new platform @JamesIG?

On a share dealing account? Unfortunately not. First stage will be to replicate current functionality in the new HTML5 format, and then look to improve on certain aspects such as this.

    • Hi all, been up and running and watching from the side lines. Thanks for putting the list up early as I made my own list from the gap scanner from ideas but you seemed to have more plus alot of the tickers I could not trade on IG but jumped on TG Therapeutics at 973 and took some money from that. Then jumped back in at 1059 and she plummeted and my heart just sank. I managed to ride it back up to 1053 and got out with a small profit of £20. Should have put my stop in but am still learning to get out quick . I was so lucky it went back up. Thought I was going to be on a bad loss because I didn't get out early enough. I find that if you only gain a small amount each day its better that going hard at it and loosing.  Still got loads to learn. Anyway cant wait till monday.  Great content and look forward to next week. Have a great weekend.
    • Is it safe to come out now?
