Hi, that might be a connection problem, check the connection box bottom right, the number after the slash is the number of drop outs, there will be one or two on startup but if you have a lot more there is a problem.

Also check the data feeds from 'File' > 'Open an Account', the speeds should be less than 100 ms.

Probably still ok and not the reason as there is still a connection, click on the connection box and check other data centers (see pic).

is there any other error message on the screen rather than in the journal?

Is this issue solved. I encounter the same problem.

Help desk says they'll look into it. not sure how long it'll take. It's been already 2 days, since I talked to them.

Look like I'm not alone.

I did chat with IG support. Same answer. Last Friday until now ...

Thanks for the help. ☺️ Appreciate that. 

I guess I just need to wait patiently ...

MT4 is third party and so IG don't really have any control over it other than their connection. I set up a pending order on the live platform yesterday without any problems at all.

What was the solution @sandwich
I literally just downloaded Meta5 because I wasn't able to enter trades.

    • This ...   to generate enough fear and despair to ensure this ... which is essentially a loss of national sovereignty and a loss of personal freedoms and liberties. In the future Google will tell you what's true or not, Zuckerberg will tell you what you're allowed to say or not, Greta will tell you what you're allowed to do or not while Gates will tell you which medical interventions and treatments will be mandatory or not.   Meanwhile back to Sweden ...   While in Wales you can look but you can't buy (this is what stupidity looks like) ...  
    • I see this quite often too.... not sure if these spikes happen in an instance ..
