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 !!

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.

    • EUR/USD, GBP/USD and USD/JPY on the back foot as support comes into play EUR/USD and GBP/USD consolidate after recent decline, while USD/JPY falls back towards key support in the wake of a BoJ rate decision.    Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Thursday 28 October 2021  EUR/USD consolidates around Fibonacci support EUR/USD has been consolidating around the 76.4% Fibonacci support level of $1.1595 over much of the week, with the price showing signs of a potential resurgence in the wake of Monday’s declines. The intraday trend remains bullish unless the price breaks below the $1.1572 swing low. With that in mind, it makes sense to look for another move higher until we see support break. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD breaks through support after recent uptrend GBP/USD has been on the rise of late, with the price moving back towards the crucial $1.3913 swing high. A break above that level is ultimately required to bring the wider bearish trend to an end. With that in mind, there is a chance of further downside given the move through $1.3742 yesterday. To the upside, a move back above $1.3829 would be required to bring the short-term bullish trend back into play. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY falling towards support after post-BoJ USD/JPY has continued to drift back towards the ¥113.41 support level despite a Bank of Japan (BoJ) rate decision that saw them keep rates steady and downgrade growth for this year. A dovish BoJ did little to stifle the yen, with the pair declining back towards ¥113.41 following a recent trendline break. That level also coincides with the 76.4% Fibonacci support level. Ultimately, we have a very clear bullish trend in play here and thus we would need to see ¥113.41 and ¥113.00 taken out for a more bearish short-term picture to come into play. Source: ProRealTime
