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

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 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 have exactly the same problem.   Cannot access ProRealTime from demo mode.    Same 'server error'.

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

    • 1) It would be really helpful to be able to change a stop loss from normal to guaranteed stop in the online trading platform. Currently we can only do that on the mobile app which is ridiculous because the online trading platform should be having more features than the mobile app. 2) Allow us to set limit (take profit) for partial position size. Example if I buy 5 contracts of AUD/USD at 0.7150. I would like the option to be able to set take profit for 3 contracts at 0.7170 and 2 contracts at 0.7190.   
    • Hi Folks, The platform advertises that you need to place three or more trades in the previous month to avail of the free trading on US stocks (no $15 commission) for the subsequent month. However, even with that commission fee gone you're going to have to pay IG for the currency conversion each time. You're going back and forth between buying and selling, GBP to USD to GBP ...this will equate to a lot of money. So, you've realised the above and to avoid this really ridiculous and expensive merry-go-round you turn on multi-currency feature, right? In your head you think:   "I want to exclusively trade US stocks, I've waited one month (you'd have rathered to just pay IG and not need to wait), made more than three trades on that currency merry-go-round, I am happy to pay the reasonable quarterly fee to IG from here on in and keep the account as USD while availing of their most advertised feature, the commission free trading on US stock market". The new month arrives and you can have a great time trading on the US stock market with your dollar that doesn't keep eating away at any trade profits with each buy and sell. However, the next month arrives and menacing commission fee is back! But you traded at least three times last month, what gives? Ah! But you used the multicurrency feature, and this means on the subsequent month you will not be eligible for commission free trading. You're back to square one. Your choice is to either pay IG the fee for every conversion in every trade or prevent this and keep the respective currency but also you must pay IG a commission.    Anyone else experience this? I'm hoping I'm completely wrong, but contacting the helpdesk seems to confirm this ...
    • IG need to provide a stock screener, live scanner for volume/price movement, pre-market data,  and rapid execution for private traders and rebate fees for trading view as they do for PRT, with traders who trade frequently. One can be ambitious and ask IG to provide a free platform like thinkorswim as Ameritrade does with current news stream  - again a free rebate for access to Benziga or similar with rebates linked to the amount of trades.  The money spent on IG TV perhaps can be spent somewhere else towards provision of some free resources to private traders/investors.  The IG tv is a serious issue - do IG really think that IG TV add any value?  Access to financial publications/sites might be a better thing.  The effort of IG to provide its own academy, advice etc is and always will probably a poor quality duplication.  Please learn/borrow from American brokers and now that their commission charges are Zero.  PRT - Can that be downloadable.  The web based form just slows everything down and very clunky and the charts are not elegant at all.  They have a community and they do develop or help develop some strategies. We do not want to lose them. But a live screener /scanner please.  I just realised that I do not even know if IF IT team even reads these comments or prioritise any of the suggestions. Please get rid of your IG TV investment, it is very annoying. And yes VWAP/anchored VWAP please on the charts. Give the private investors some of the rebates too. Is Charlotte, finally providing our redemption by talking these to the right eyes and ears! Overall, IG really is not that bad given others at least for UK investors. Perhaps just a less spread and less of that dreaded, sudden declaration that this stock is only for close and you can not open new position. I think that and the liquidity  excuse is lame unless IG is beholden to a particular market maker or IG somehow gets it in a very large position by itself.
