Has this been raised with the support team. Deafening silence from those peeps

Same here.  After a moment it pops back to 5 min candles.

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

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.

im facing the same issue on my browser platform. Always reverting back to 5mins candlesticks with my previously drawn lines gone.

It started yesterday around the time of US opening, and subsequently the whole platform went down.

I'm also having this problem. Enquiries to support have previously resulted in pointle3ss tinkering with settings in google chrome. I note that there has been no response from them to this thread which is pretty poor

Its Virtually impossible to trade with this charting platform. As soon as you draw the  supply and demand levels on the Charts the analysis wiped out. Missing out on great trading opportunities.

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.

@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.

    • Volume profile, depth of market, orderbook, VWAP, VPVR, VPSV... all the basic things needed which for some reason are disabled.. seems odd that you don't want your clients to see this information? Even FXCM, OANDA, Pepperstone, ICmarkets, FXPRO & many more not listed all allow you to see this and have access to this vital information. ProRealTime v11.. It's about 2 years overdue now... frustrating not only having out of date features but more so when trying to back test things as it's limited on v10.3 to a maximum of 100k units.. that means with every day passing, I lose a day's worth of data.. PRT v11 allows you to have 1m unit backtest.. Also.. Custom, multiple take profits.. allow me to set a desired amount, for example.. ** points or **% at 10 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 20 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 30 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 40 pips away from entry.. Have a look at cTrader.. they do a perfect example of this, in advanced take profit section.
