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.
