Huge Erroneous (probably) Spike on GBP/USD Chart

Question

I cannot use my GBP/USD chart at present because it is drawing a HUMONGOUS price spike to $11,500. How do i clear this spike because it has my price scale all messed up and i cannot see anything but the top of the spike?

Hi DragonBung, I just started using IG's version of MT4 and have the same issue on a variety of forex pairs on all charts with a time frame higher than m30,, did you find a solution?

Thanks

Joe

I am having the exact same problem and this is the case on many currency pairs - major and minor. I keep emailed IG support about it but they don't give any answers. Anyone found a solution to this? Is there a way to delete the data for that day so that the chart functions about the 30m?

It is happening on my demo MT4 account as well.  This problem has not happened to any other demo accounts from other brokers.  Isn't this just crazy?

Well, I guess I'm not the only one with this issue. I encountered the issue a couple weeks ago with a new Demo account and bagged it when I couldn't get any help from IG. I just tried it again and apparently IG couldn't be bothered to fix it. I keep on trying to give IG a chance but I keep running into issues with their platform. I'm curious whether this is just the data for US clients or not. Unfortunately I guess I'll have to shelf IG for any future consideration. They apparently can't be bothered to fix a problem that makes the charts unusable. BTW I have tried to delete and re-download the  database to no avail. I have also tried to edit out the erroneous record but when the platform is reopened the record reappears.

    • https://www.nasdaq.com/articles/when-performance-matters%3A-nasdaq-100-vs.-sp-500-second-quarter-20-2020-07-13 should look similar with GICS - i.e. NDX underweight (vs SPX)to Financials (incl. RE), Energy, Materials and Utilities together roughly 25%... and those went kinda nowhere over the more or less recent past...:     ...of course this is rather superficial, but (together with comparisons posted earlier) suggests really exactly two - closely linked - segments in global asset markets have been trending (up) recent years:  US large cap tech and consumer (incl. Healthcare) stocks.   ...apparently a significant share of all the money printed globally this period  seems to eventually somehow have found its way into these highly concentrated segments...
    • I know relative to some brokers (who are taking the absolute $%&*) IG fx conversion fee of 0.5% is okay, however its still an absolute joke that they and the industry can get away with this flagrant ripping off of customers. I would like to know if IG have any plans to reduce their conversion fee ( trading US stocks in an ISA) to compete with others such as Trading212 who don't charge fx fees at all.... I have a moderate account with substantial turnover, like others I know, I'm now considering transferring my account to 212 as I cant see any justification for such high fx conversion fees now its been shown thats its possible to remove them al together... Perhaps 0.1% to cover costs would be understandable, but 0.5% so 1% round trip on trading any size is ridiculous. I easily give IG thousands, if not tens of thousands a yr in fx fees...
    • Hey,  Unfortunately in Singapore we don't offer a non-leveraged account. We offer these types of accounts to other clients in other countries but not for Singapore.   Apologies for the inconvenience.
