Problem with Charts. Defaulting to 5 min charts.

Question

This happened yesterday and once the markets closed, analytics were reinstated. This morning all analytics have been removed again and charts default to 5 mins.

I got this eMail from them yesterday - have contacted them again today to ask why they don't want customers to trade on volatile markets.

Due to high traffic on the site we had to prioritise dealing over analysis.  In order to maintain good execution we disabled some of the chart analysis tools. We hope to enable it again after the UK market close but it will depend on platform traffic. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Thanks for your email.
If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us. Alternatively, we've recently launched our new Help & Support site which gives you answers from our huge knowledge-base, online community, and education hub.

This chart issue stinks, IG take money off you when you're winning, they take money from you when you're losing and then guess what .......... make it almost impossible for you to trade at other times too,

IG, I pay you for a broker service , provide the service i pay you for and have set up.

Guess what, GoMarkets havent removed their charting analyticals or chart drawings, they answer their phones too !!

Mine appear to be working fine now. But I dont see why tech support cant be bothered to respond to my message or post to this forum. Makes it pointless other than to check whether or not it's your own pc that's gone wonky

Hey everyone, 

Massive apologies for this issue. The chart issue should now be resolved. 

After speaking with the technical team they have confirmed that we couldn't operate whilst keeping the personalised settings.

My charts seem to be working fine now.

However, I am very concerned with system stability during times of high volatility/volume. It seems that the IG systems can't cope and nothing seems to have been done to address this since the last outage.

An explanation of what happened and action being taken is long overdue.

Can you help? @CharlotteIG

@CharlotteIG,

Even I am getting the same error of charts defaulting to 5 mins which is pretty annoying. This has been occurring for a while now and prior to the recent extreme volatility in prices. 

Would IG be kind enough to explain the reason this is happening? Once they have done this can they offer a solution to this specific problem with potential timescales for resolution?

 

I will speak with the dealing desk to get a sufficient explanation on what happened yesterday/ this morning.

    • S&P 500 has bounced again at a 50% level THT! If I learn nothing else I appreciate that you've opened my eyes to this and stops me from trading too frequently. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
    • U.S. INDICES TECHNICAL HIGHLIGHTS: S&P 500 surges off support, new record high near Dow Jones finds significant support around the 200-day Nasdaq 100 top of channel test nearing again Dow Jones, S&P 500, Nasdaq 100 Forecast: Stocks Staring at New Highs Momentarily the S&P 500 broke the old high created in September, tagged the trend-line from October 2020, and then sprung higher. The volatility around the old high and trend-line were cues that something like this could happen. The October trend-line, which previously had the bare minimum to make up a trend-line given it had only two connecting points, has now been validated as a truly meaningful line of support. Should we see a revisit of that line in the near future it could hold a good risk/reward opportunity for fresh longs. Right now a test of the trend-line doesn’t look likely. Stocks are strong and near highs, in aggregate. The momentum has been fierce coming out of the low, which is normal, now stock momentum is likely to diminish as new highs come into focus. A new record will be recorded once the SPX breaks 4743. For now, looking for stocks to trade to new highs, it appears a Santa rally may be in the works. Until we see pervasive price action that takes out key line and levels, there appears to be no reason to be bearish at this time.     S&P 500 DAILY CHART S&P 500 Chart by TradingView The Dow Jones behaved around the 200-day moving average in very typical fashion. This is what was said last week, “We may see a solid push through the 200 initially, tag off of support below, then reversal higher.” That is exactly what happened. On Dec 1 we saw a slice through the 200-day to support beneath it followed by a recovery beginning the following day. The current leg higher is set to run with less steam, but look for the old high at 36565 to come into play. Since April the Dow may undergoing a broadening top type of sequence, but we’ll leave that on the backburners until it becomes more relevant. For now, staying the course on the upside. DOW JONES DAILY CHART Dow Jones Chart by TradingView The Nasdaq 100 was putting in a head-and-shoulders pattern around the top of a channel dating to September 2020, but that idea was quickly put to rest once the old high in September was met and held. A top-side test here will be interesting, because it will mean that the top of the channel is coming under pressure again. Can the NDX leave the gravity of the channel, or will it continue to keep the rally contained? It’s a big question, because once price escapes the top of these kind of patterns we can see an impressive acceleration unfold thereafter.
