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...

    • @KoketsoIGFollowing up endlessly. Any updates yet?
    • Recently, we have noticed the growth of Mobile mining, a lot of projects have sprung up where users earn passively through these mining platforms. Under the same breath, ICE blockchain has evolved as a new digital currency that can be mined or earned from any mobile device. The bourgeoning blockchain is solely based on a community of trust and has a decentralized governance model. The network is built with inherent scalability, such that it can scale a good number of network participants without compromising its speed or efficiency. On its most positive side, the Ice Open Network has high performance and has the innate capacity to process millions of transactions per second, heralding it as one of the fastest blockchains in the world. Through the instrument of its threads and shards, it parallelizes transactions into bits thus significantly increasing throughput and enhancing scalabilty. Apart from being highly scalable, it is an offshoot of TON blockchain that seeks to bring forth decentralized services for data privacy, user control and efficient data management. In the core spirit of Web3, Ice network has a decentralized identity service that allows users to create and manage their own digital identities with top level assurance, privacy and security. Flowing from above, the ICE network has a good number of usecases and more are in the offing as well. Consequently, platforms like Bitget have declared intent to list the native token $ICE on 28th February, with a deposit to earn event. This is a really good way for the project to garner spotlight. I’m optimistic as per its growth in the long run.    
    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
