Pro real order error in demo?

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

Hi  I have activated PRT on your demo account, there was just a slight discrepancy on our systems which I've corrected.

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.

Hi and thanks for your reply. 

 

It states "Server error An error occured while activating ProRealTime. Please try later."

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 enabled it for you also and I'll look into getting this escalated to find out why this is happening.

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

Hello,

I don't see any option in my account to activate ProOrder live and demo, so I cannot use it in Pro Real Time. Can that option be activated for my account?

 

Thanks

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.

I'm getting the same error when trying to activate PRT on either LIVE or DEMO: 

 

Server error An error occurred while activating ProRealTime. Please try later.

@CharlotteIG @JamesIG are you able to assist?

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.

    • Start the conversation The US election is scheduled for Tuesday 3 November 2020, when all 50 states and Washington DC will cast their votes. The vote spans six different time zones, so the first exit polls will be available at around 11pm (EST) when West Coast voting closes. In the UK, that will be around 4am (GMT) on Wednesday 4 November 2020. The election is likely to create opportunities for traders, with price movements expected across a range of forex pairs, indices and commodities in the run-up to polling day. Volatility related to the election could continue until congress certifies the result on Wednesday 6 January 2021, or even until the winner is inaugurated on Wednesday 20 January 2021. What should traders expect to see during the US election? All US markets tend to experience increased volatility in the run up to a presidential election, including USD forex pairs, indices and commodities. That’s because many investors will attempt to lock in positions before the result is announced – using polls to gauge public sentiment. The aim is to take full advantage of the price moves that occur when the country’s political direction is confirmed. At the top level, early indications suggest that the following could be on the cards if one of these two main candidates win: Donald Trump A Trump win could see an escalation of the trade war, potentially causing problems for some US exporters and having a negative impact on the value of the dollar. However, this effect could be offset by reassurances that tax cuts and deregulation will continue – boosting the US economy. Joe Biden A Biden win could see tensions in the trade war cool, providing a boost to US exporters and the dollar. However, these effects could be offset by tax increases for high-income households, and more limited deregulation.   How will markets react to the different candidates? Market commentary by IG Senior Market Analyst Joshua Mahony Stocks Markets hate uncertainty, and historically the perception has been that a new president might bring policies that could be harmful for stocks. This happened in 2016 when analysts were confident that a Trump presidency would spark a market collapse. But, we are now seeing that same fear creep in as people consider a Biden presidency and the potential uncertainty it could cause. Biden is openly more left-leaning, and his policies are expected to be geared towards human needs rather than those of investors and traders. This sentiment isn’t helped by suggestions that Biden would reverse Trump’s tax cuts, and it is likely that markets will rise alongside the potentially increased chance of a Trump victory as we approach the election. USD The value of a currency is supposed to reflect the health of an economy and its future prospects. Many are expecting Biden to be less focused on the markets than his Republican opponent, so the dollar could weaken in the event of a Biden victory. However, this effect could be offset if Biden is able to improve relations between the US and China after years of market anxiety. In this scenario, it would be the Chinese yuan which may benefit the most, with the trade war having sparked huge upside for USD/CNH. Keep in mind that if the wider markets fall on a Biden victory – including US stocks and indices – the dollar would likely rally in the short-term to reflect a risk-off move as investors turn to USD. Gold The prospect of a more expansive fiscal policy under Biden, and from a government which is happy to embark on substantial spending programmes, could provide a boost to precious metals. There’s a caveat here too, because in the past precious metals have also followed the same patterns as the stock markets during times of crisis. So, any collapse in equity markets that may come from a change at the White House could drag gold lower in the immediate period. Plus, while Trump has finally seen the kind of stimulus he would have hoped for, a Biden win could result in a more substantial stimulus package if the Democrats gain a foothold in Congress.   How are you trading?
