IG.com ALERTS produce INACCURATE alerts which I describe as 'false' signals.

It either delays the Alerts signal (despite set as 'immediately' and 'every time') or even misses the signal (fails to report).

This negates 80% of the avlue of the IG trading platform.

The stock answer of  use ProReal Time tech is a denial of this issue.

How good is ProReal timefor ALERTS?

I previously used ProReal Time but didint find it much better for processing charts, alerts and trading.

I'd appreciate ALL feedback from traders & investors (retail, professional).

 

Thanks

 

NB. I am described as 'new contributor'. Is this helpful? It seems to imply 'newbie' status, however I have used IG since Spring 2015 on a daily or weekly basis...i.e. regularly over 60 weeks, plus I have had 'skin in the game' in markets since late 1980's (40 years).....

Signals, indicators, TA  are, on the whole, a waste of time, whatever source you use.   They provide a justification to trade in the eyes of the person using them but you will be caught out too many times to make them worthwhile. The brokers love them because, as I've said many times before, they create business for them.  It's a bit like going to a casino where the house will happily show you the last 30 numbers which have come up on the roulette wheel and punters will think they can see this amazing pattern emerging, but of course it isn't.

Thanks for your feedback. As a retail investor and trader I can't watch every market all the time. An Alert gives me a heads up as to a particular setup e.g. 50MA/200MA crossover or when MACD crosses zeroline...My bone with IG is that even when one wishes to use Alerts the information is either inaccurate or untimely despite correct setup/settings.

A conspiracy? A massive disappointment, waste of time and poor service by so-called market leader.

If I had a better choice I would use it, and so would you, I imagine?

don't know but it might be worth checking your Alert setup in the settings page in your My IG dashboard, may be try the Push service as well.

I realise this thread is a year old, but just to add:

I have price alerts set up on all my holdings to flag up any changes of 5% or more either way. As a retail investor who can't watch the markets as often as I would like it's really useful, when it works.

This morning I got two, both telling me that two of my holdings had just grown over 100% on the day. They hadn't, and it's also a Saturday morning...

    • Tesla reported earnings of $1.19 per share after the US market close yesterday - four cents higher than analyst expectations. While revenue was at a record high it came in just short of the bullish expectations at $24.32 billion.  Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Thursday 26 January 2023 Tesla shares up on earnings Tesla shares rose 8% yesterday in extended trade on the IG platform, up a further notch higher by a margin of 5% on from what we saw during full trading yesterday. And this is as a result of earnings out late last night. Let's take a look at the figures. The electric carmaker reported earnings of $1.19 per share after the US markets closed. That's $0.04 higher than analysts expected. Revenue was just short of expectations at $24.32 billion. These are record numbers, according to the company. In a call to investors, CEO Elon Musk said he expected a pretty difficult recession this year for the US economy. But demand for Tesla vehicles, he says, will be good, despite a probable contraction in the automotive market as a whole, adding that absent external disruptions, 2023 deliveries could hit two million vehicles. Share price chart Overall, let's take a look at the share price chart. This stock is now up 51% from the lows that we had back in January and I'm talking January this year. So it's just shy of three weeks. That is a whopping increase. But you've got to bear in mind, the stock has fallen substantially from the record highs we saw back on the 4th of November 2021. We've lost 75.6% of overall value in Tesla. So this uptick here when you're looking at this sort of improvement from those lows, it is an incredible move in terms of percentages, but it's risen from $103 up to $152. So that's what we're opening this morning at 9:00 UK time, extended trade after that big gain yesterday on those numbers coming through from Tesla.
