PRT via IG or IG via PRT


SixEight

Question

Hi All,

Hoping I can find a quick and easy answer - I've been using PRT after I signed up for IG, but it's clear that it's only the ProRealTime Complete that you get via IG. In comparison, I see PRT are offering ProRealTime Premium via their site and you can sign up with IG or Interactive Brokers. 

Is there anyway to get the ProRealTime Premium linked to your current IG account, or do I need to close it and then reopen via PRT?

Also, if signing up via ProRealTime, can you only access CFDs on IG, or can you also access the Spreadbetting etc? 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Spread betting is just a type of CFD that is unique to the UK as it has some tax advantages for UK tax payers.

IG commission their own version of Prorealtime and is actually overdue to be updated (the new version was expected Feb). It's neither the exact same as PRT Premium or Complete but is offered for free (with min number of trades see terms). You could sign up for the PRT Premium which can be hooked up to your IG account (sb or cfd) but you would need to pay the PRT cost which used to be about £50 a month.

Hi @Caseynotes - this page seems to imply you could get PRT Premium without paying (presuming you hit the minimum trades): https://trading.prorealtime.com/en/ig

Yes, the IG pages also say it's the premium version but many users were able to point out features on Premium that weren't on the IG version, whether it is a compatibility issue or whatever I don't know. I've been around for 3 updates (tend to be every 3 years) and the IG rewrite version is always about a year behind the PRT update.

Thanks @Caseynotes - good to know. Shame that we can't get the premium, the IG version of PRT seems massively limited, the order book is empty etc.

yeah though even if you paid for the premium version from PRT and hooked it up to IG (and most other brokers) you'd still not get the L2 data without paying extra for a subscription service, and extra for exchange feed fees, and extra for ... 🙂

True, although I wouldn't mind paying for the Order Book feed data for the UK and US.

people always start with the retail brokers who provide the complete package free. Latter you might want to go down the route of building your own package with subscription services. More and faster information is a benefit but doesn't come cheap and you quickly find yourself in a position where you must make x amount every day just to cover costs.

    • In this week’s Trading the Trend, Axel Rudolph FSTA looks at the downward trend of the German DAX, going short on the bounce to 12,300, with a stop-loss at 12,940 and a long-term downside target of 11,500. ig        
    • BRITISH POUND TALKING POINTS: GBP/USD was in a difficult spot earlier in September and the problem has continued to devolve. It’s a negative feedback type situation around the UK and the British Pound with a collapsing currency leading to surging bond yields which led to a BoE intervention effort that’s led to more currency collapse. It’s a painful feedback loop that hasn’t yet stopped. Is there hope on the horizon? And is this a problem that will be relegated to the UK, as it has similar hues to problems being seen in Europe and the United States. The current backdrop is messy as bonds and FX are screaming panic and meanwhile, US equities look relatively calm. I discussed this at-length in yesterday’s webinar. The British Pound collapsed last week, or so we thought, only to open our platforms this week to see what a collapse in a major currency actually looked like. GBP/USD has set a fresh all-time-low and perhaps more disturbingly, in the days since, price hasn’t really rebounded much. Sellers are still hitting the pair and now there’s other dislocations that are taking place.   The UK is faced with a similar problem as Europe and the US with extreme inflation. All three Central Banks were rather calm as inflation built through much of last year but this year, as inflation continued to run-higher even after initial tightening efforts, worry started to show given that central bank efforts were not only unsuccessful but also appearing to bring on even more problems.
