ProRealTime & Demo accounts

Question

If I activate ProRealTime on a demo account will IG look to charge me? I sent a request to IG seeking an answer to this question but nobody has bothered to reply.

Here's the answer to your question

"You can get access to ProRealTime charts at no extra cost if you transact at least four times in a given month. However, if you don't meet this requirement, or your trading activity is of extremely low value, then a £30 per month fee will apply on the last day of every calendar month."

 

Nobody has ever found out what "extremely low value" means, but you should be fine if you place 4 times per month. I assume the 4 trades need to be on live and not on demo, otherwise what's the point

PRT is a solid charting package - well worth the money.

If  you're trying to game the free offer don't get pissed when you get burnt. Lol.

I mean don't get me wrong - it's **** phrasing - but what they're saying is 'bring in the spread to cover the costs of us offering this to you for free and it will be for you'.

Assume you need to pay the cost of spread to cover the 30 quid. i.e. £30 / 4 = £7.50 a point trade on something with a 1 point spread. Open and close 4 x £7.50 trade. OR whatever to cover that like 30 x £1 a point (on a 1 point spread).

thanks my thinking anyway.

Or just go here https://www.prorealtime.com/en/prices

and pay through the nose for all those data feeds. Tick all those data feeds you get with IG and see those prices rack up into the hundreds of euros a month...

Not placed any trades on live account in November and boom got the fee charged. Without receiving any prior warning via email or similar though.

At least we know that they actually charge this now if you don't trade :D

    • Volume profile, depth of market, orderbook, VWAP, VPVR, VPSV... all the basic things needed which for some reason are disabled.. seems odd that you don't want your clients to see this information? Even FXCM, OANDA, Pepperstone, ICmarkets, FXPRO & many more not listed all allow you to see this and have access to this vital information. ProRealTime v11.. It's about 2 years overdue now... frustrating not only having out of date features but more so when trying to back test things as it's limited on v10.3 to a maximum of 100k units.. that means with every day passing, I lose a day's worth of data.. PRT v11 allows you to have 1m unit backtest.. Also.. Custom, multiple take profits.. allow me to set a desired amount, for example.. ** points or **% at 10 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 20 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 30 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 40 pips away from entry.. Have a look at cTrader.. they do a perfect example of this, in advanced take profit section.
