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.

    • The cryptocurrency industry has grown rapidly in recent years, with the total market capitalization now exceeding $500 billion. However, the industry still faces a number of challenges, including security and on-chain efficiency which is one of the biggest challenges in the cryptocurrency industry, because in recent years, there have been a number of high-profile hacks of cryptocurrency exchanges & wallets, and traders are faced with high cost of on-chain transactions. All of which summed up to make cryptocurrency trading less efficient. In order to address these issues, exchanges are seen taking up the responsibility of solving the problems and I've seen Bitget, a leading cryptocurrency derivatives exchange, recently partnering with Cobo, a leading provider of digital asset custody and security solutions. This partnership is aimed at enhancing the security and efficiency of cryptocurrency trading, which will allow users to seamlessly execute cross-exchange transactions, enabling users to capitalise on arbitrage opportunities without having to deposit their funds directly on exchanges. This could significantly reduce on-chain transaction gas costs and make crypto investments more efficient and cost-effective. Developments like this, if it could be capitalised on would take away bad players from the industry, make crypto a safe place and increase its adoption, but how wide would it cover for the whole users in the crypto space and even Bitcoin?

    • I think bitget will be the obvious option cos binance that use to be a good option isn't finding it rosy atm with regulatory bodies and speculations around the health of the exchange aren't friendly to feel safe with them atm
