Pro real order error in demo?


KasperElsborg

Question

Hi there. I'm curious if anyone else has the same problem as me and perhaps a solution or other information regarding this. In my DEMO account it is not possible the activate Pro Order in PRT. It's very frustrating as I would like to do some live testing of my code in the demo account before actually go with it on the Live account. PRT is enabled under settings in the DEMO account, but has no option to enable Pro Order like in LIVE account.

 

The Pro Order works perfectly in the PRT LIVE account- so no issue there.

 

I have raised this issue 3 times with IG helpdesk but at last they send it to IT-Finance, but they never got back, and Its been a week now.

HI ,


Welcome to the IG Community!

 

Sorry to hear that you have been experiencing issues switching on ProOrder on your demo account. Is this a problem you are still experiencing, or did you hear back from our helpdesk?

Hi Tim, and thanks :-)

 

I haven't heard anything yet, though I have tried many times over the last 3 weeks, latest reminder was yesterday. At least it's escalated to IT- finance a week ago. I also send a report from the PRT demo account for troubleshooting

Hi ,

 

I've looked into this, and can see that it has been escalated for further investigation with ProRealTime. We haven't had a response from them yet, so I have chased them up on this.

 

Hopefully we'll have some feedback for you shortly.

 

Thanks,

Tim

Hello All , 

 

How was this resolved ? Are you able to share the fix ?

 

I have a similar problem i have activated Pro Real Time and Pro Order in my Live Account but when trying to activate Pro Real Time for my Demo Account it comes up with this errror "Server error occured while activating ProRealTime. Please try later."

 

Tried it yesterday and also today and still the same error?

Hi

 

I have been using the old platform, but would like to get to grips with prorealtime, however, I can only activate for live accounts, but not for demo. Obviously given the complexity of the new platform, there is no way I would use it unless I had practised and understood all the facets. So can anyone explain why I am unable to activate demo, but I can for live?

 

Any help would be gratefully received.

 

Regards

David

Hi ,  Does the option to activate demo appear in the Prorealtime section in the settings tab on the dashboard, and does the pointer change to white glove when you hover the mouse over it?

It may be that IG have simply not activated it for your particular account.

Ok, so that's the same as the earlier poster in the thread and looks like it needed an IG staffer to intervene to reset your account. Maybe  or  can help from here or perhaps you could either give the helpdesk a ring or use the live account and go to the 'Help' tab, then 'Technical Support', and type in the dialog box the problem and it will be sent to an IG technician.

 

Hopefully won't be too hard to fix.

I've tried to activate PRT on my demo spread bet account, but get the message: Server error. The trial period for ProRealTime on your demo account has ended. If you would like to use PRT on your demo account again you will need to activate PRT on your Live account.

PRT is already active on my Live account, as you can see from the line above - it gives me the option to Disable PRT for live accounts above Activate PRT for demo accounts. I've included a screenshot. @CharlotteIG@JamesIG, it seems as if you're helpful - can you please help me with this?

Thanks - Helen

I have the same error report:

"The trial period for ProRealTime on your demo account has ended. If you would like to use ProRealTime on your demo account again you will need to activate ProRealTime on your Live account."

In my live Account, ProReal Time is activated. 

Why i can't activate it on my Demo? So i can't test strategies yet.

Hi, @CharlotteIG

I'm suffering from the same problem as other users have mentioned above. That ProRealTime doesn't activate for the demo account but works fine with the Live version, and leaves an error message when attempting to activate: The trial period for ProRealTime on your demo account has ended. If you would like to use ProRealTime on your demo account again you will need to activate ProRealTime on your Live account.

Thanks.

    • I havent traded EURGBP for a while so it may well be normal activity - maybe some sort of algo running between 22.00-22.30. For no apparent reason the spread moves to 12 pips wide (from 0.9) and swings erratically. Take a look at the IG 1 minute chart here with a corresponding chart from TradingView (FXCM feed but they were all the same) at the same time.  The chart I share is 1m and mid price so with that in mind this action would have swept all stops above and below the high 8698 and 8686 by a further 6 pips so call it a 25 pip range of 8680 and 8705 it what was for all intents and purposes a quiet market (EURUSD had a 6 pip range at this time and GBPUSD had a 8 pip range) Luckily I saw it and pulled my stop and left in my Limit - need less to say my stop would have probably been hit at 80, and of course my Limit at 8700 whilst swept, was not triggered as the spread was 12 pips not the usual 0.9 pips. Very odd action - I can only assume algo driven - but definitely not in the interest of the trader...
