Significant price drop

Hi Guys, do you know why sometimes there are significant price drop in IG's product but not seen elsewhere?

Take for example: Microsoft Corp (All Sessions) (DFB) 1d chart on 13-02-2020. The previous closing price was around 18,500. However, the opening price was around 9,000. It is almost 50% drop! I checked elsewhere but I did see such drop. Had I had a position on the previous day, the position would be completely wiped out!

Could someone please kindly illuminate me?

Thank you very much.

Please see the attached picture. Btw, this is not the first time I see such occurrences.

Sometimes there are candlestick glitches however stops/ limits/ profit/ losses will not be impacted by the incorrect spike. Right at the end of the day we have to wait for our Australian technical team to get in and fix the glitched candlestick. Apologies for that.

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
