They have 'prioritized dealing over analysis' in other words IG is happy to let people use their buggy system to place trades which costs money even although it has fallen on its @rse.  Highly irresponsible!  They should have closed trading altogether until it was fixed.

Has anyone checked the T&C? I haven’t looked into this but intentionally breaking their charts during periods of extreme volatility seems like it could be a case for a lawsuit either under contract law or consumer law...

I've had probl;ems all year with Live and demo and for the last month also like everyone else.

I'm down about £350 over the year thru the inability to Close a Trade or Amend a Stop.

 

Today the charts froze for 20 minutes.  I had 2 charts open on the same instrument and both on the 2m.  Both showing Bid price.  Candles different on both, P/L showing different than what's on the chart also.

Manually refreshing every 2 minutes or so, only for it to have been closed at a loss again.  

Currently on the phone to IG for 30 mins and counting.

I'm expecting the usual.  Restart computer, refresh empty cache, check internet, computer problems, not enough power, ram etc.etc.etc.

    • Integrate v.11 of PRT with IG. Why are IG still using PRT v.10.3, when v11. which contains many significant improvements, was released over a year ago?
    • 1 last post - couldn't help myself!!! Simple 1 x 1 Gann Angles projected from the high/low price points - I'll admit that this is ultra advanced trading stuff here, the message here is two-fold The markets regardless of what you think or have been told are NOT random, they HAVE no choice but to work out a pre-set course according to their growth or decay Gann Angles are far far better at identifying support/resistance levels - BECAUSE the market or specifically price action is NOT 2D, we can clearly see price conforms to a grid system movement - that ain't 2Dimensional! You could blindly trade those gann angles if you have the right level of expertise and knowledge of them - look at the blue circles - price rallied then fell back to them and bounced pretty accurately, they won't all work and the highest swing high is under threat at which you can't project further levels from Again here's the secret of success - you could of skewed the R value into your favour by having a 20/25pt stop underneath, trailed a stop and made fantastic R value returns Gann said over 100 years ago "Markets are financial points of force and that EVERY low/high is connected to another low/high point of force in the FUTURE, as well as in the past" As you can clearly SEE - he was absolutely right - very few people look at the markets right, when you do you see things completely differently to most other traders/investors There's some real science behind markets moves - I might do a post in future months as understanding what is actually going on helps you see through the fog and makes things a bit clearer  I'll admit I've studied Gann for years and it is not easy, it is very hard to grasp - he hides hidden messages in his course that can throw you off for months and when you to apply his methods some just do not work
