Hi, do you have the IG feeds to your mt4. 'File' > 'Open an Account' . (see pic below)

Dear Caseynotes

I am little new with that, I need to do that on the MT4 platform or the MT4 IG plateform ?

regards

no problem, you need to open mt4 so if downloaded from IG there should be IG mt4 icon on your desktop, double click to open mt4 and look in File tab (top left corner) of mt4.

you don't need to connect to metatrader as you should be connected to IG instead,

you seem to have the feed as the chart has opened.

Right click on any where in 'Market Watch' and click 'Show all' (see pic).

no you don't need to connect to metatrader at all, just IG.  So you don't need metatrader's mt4 or their feed, just the ones provided by IG. 

so go back to my first post above and check you have IG's live and demo feed, as per my picture.

to set up IG just click on each feed (live or demo) in turn and click 'next' and follow the instructions. For the live account you will need the info sent in 2 emails from IG, one with your login and one with your password. For demo account mt4 assigns a random one automatically.

metatrader 4 for buy a signal 

just seen you are looking for the metatraders 'signal service', you do that from the mt4 platform, it will have sent you mail, click on the 'Terminal' tab and see pic below

I read all the information but it look like it is impossible from IG to follow metatrader signal, I think IG blocked them

    • 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?
