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.

I have open MT4 IG on my computer but I can find how to connect to metatrader for have the signal now 

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).

Ok but now how I connect my IG MT4 to metatrader 4 for buy a signal 

regards 

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 have that now but when I try to buy a signal, it is impossible and I don’t know why 

the page has links to a number of articles and a video so study them first, you need to set up an account etc.

    • Charlotte, we keep seeing the message that's it's small caps that have been withdrawn. It isn't.  For example, Hikma has a market cap of £5.2bn and is in the FTSE100. How do we know which other companies IG might decide to do the same to? We are also told that it's due to exceptional client demand. In that case, limit new opening positions (buy and sell). Why should we long-term clients suffer due to this?
    • Hey,  I completely understand your frustration and I will pass it onto our senior team as well as the exposure desk.  The decisions has been made but I'm so sorry for how it's impacting your trading. With exceptional client demand in the equity space, we have reviewed our 12000 leveraged markets and decided to withdraw less than 1000 small cap equities, after a review of associated returns on these markets. We will continue to support these markets for Share Dealing, where that product is available. Sorry again for this inconvenience.  All the best 
    • Hey @SunnyD, Thanks for your post,  If you buy a future contract it usually has a slightly larger spread however you're not  subject to overnight funding like you are for cash price/ DFB.  You will not be charged 20 pts per night it's just the initial 20 points spread when you open the position. If you leave it there (and have enough on your account to cover your margin) there aren't any other fees.  Just as a heads up the April contract actually expires in March. You can find details on the platform in the get info section:  All the best
