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.

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG

A turn down could find some initial support in the 5700s, but the low at 5628 is the big level to watch. Broad outlook is of course very similar to the DAX.   CAC Daily Chart   CAC 40 Chart by TradingView   Oct 6, 2022 | DailyFX Paul Robinson, Strategist
