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...

    • Since the beginning of 2024, memecoin and AI projects have taken the crypto space by storm. Many memecoins have seen incredible adoption, with their market caps surging exponentially over the past few months. Notable examples include WIF, PEPE, and BOME, among others. Traders have shifted their focus to memecoins, drawn by their remarkable profit potential, surpassing even that of traditional BTC and altcoins. While trading memecoins can be highly lucrative, it is crucial to acknowledge the associated risks and conduct thorough research (DYOR). Some memecoins, like CAF and HMTT, have seen significant declines, resulting in substantial losses for traders. Identifying the right memecoin and the optimal time to trade is essential. As a trader always on the lookout for promising tokens, I recently discovered a memecoin with substantial potential: $LAIKA. Unlike others driven purely by social media hype, $LAIKA offers real utility. Its features include a mobile game, Laikaverse, LAIKA wallet, and DeFi (NFT staking), all contributing to its unique value proposition. Since its listing on Bitget a few hours ago, $LAIKA's price trend has been bullish. Several upcoming events provide traders with opportunities to enhance their holdings. I believe $LAIKA has the potential to emulate the success of $****, $WIF, or $DOG, but it's imperative to conduct your own research and avoid fear of missing out (FOMO). Personally, I see $LAIKA as a promising investment and would love to hear the opinions of other memecoin enthusiasts on this token.
    • Iinteresting, I've been watching the memecoin space for a while, and DOGE's success is hard to replicate. But a fast-growing project with a team that has some clout, especially with the Dogecoin Wallet founder on board, piques my interest. Right now, I'm actually busy exploring the treasure trove event on Bitget. The reward pool sounds pretty enticing, and with everything going on in the market, some extra crypto wouldn't hurt haha. I'll have to check out $JUNGLE more closely after I finish up with this event. Launching on Bitget is a good sign, and if they can truly capture that "sincerity and bravery" spirit, it could be something special
