  1. Best way to learn is by real life trading - I've never used a demo account ever - it doesn't represent the real world You're right to be sceptical as this game is full of sharks all taking a slice It is frustrating when bad price data skews spreads, slippage etc - but they are factors in the game of trading that we have to accept and build into our trading plans, routines/methods etc I'm 100% with you though - the demo's should be an exact replica of the real-life accounts, as it is a bit naughty - its a bit like training a runner to run 800 metres and then when race day comes t

  2. Hi, C# : use combination of REST & streaming. Replicated using WPF example that you can download in labs. This issue is specific to REST Every 15 minutes I get 15 min prices for a range of epics. My allowance is fine with +6500 left. I keep getting random null responses with "forbidden" status code. Different epics. If I trap null response and then set rest call to execute again, it works. I continue and it carried on with rest of epics, or will do say 10 , return forbidden for 3 and then return fine for epics following that. if I step through each epic, its fine. So s

  5. I just wanted to chip in my expoerience as a new user. I spent a few weeks playing with the Demo account before going live. I would say: (a) I tried hard to think of the Demo money as real, with mostly success. I was very careful with it, and got really upset about losing Demo money. The annoyances subsided gradually, but only because I was exercising my risk muscle and getting used to the idea that you can't win 'em all. That said, ultimately I always knew it was not real cash, and that must have affected my actions to some extent no matter how much I tried to suppress it.

  6. From here: If you can’t go long (open a ‘buy’ position) on cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, ripple, or ether, the most likely reason is we have reached our internal limits on these products, and so the market is set to ‘unlongable’. This means we are unable to accept any new long trades either by phone or online – but you’ll still be able to close existing positions. Due to the risks associated with cryptocurrencies, there’s a limit to the total amount of physical cryptocurrency we can hold as a business. When this limit is reached, we are unable to purchase more cryptocurrency to h

  7. Can we get trailing stop loss added to share dealing web platform? Also the ability to set stop order AND limit sell order. If I hold 10 shares I would like to be able to set stop loss & and profit taking points. Currently if I set a stop order and then try to set limit order (as the only way to set profit taking) is says I can not short this stock, which I assume it means I have an order for my 10 shares and the the other one is thinking of it as a 2nd order, when really I want it to be an alternative order. In other platforms when you open the trade (or even after you can

  8. No broker has their demo plugged into a live market so demo can never respond as if it was. The main reason for the demo version is for the platform developers to use it as a test bed for new updates before releasing them onto the live platform. It 's a secondary consideration to allow clients to use it to get to know the platform and trial strategies to gauge if they might work live.

  9. Thanks. But the point stands. It is fundamentally wrong and dishonest. What is the point of a demo account if not to mimic exactly what happens with a live account at the real market? The entire concept of demo is to ease customs in and upgrade then to a live account and deposit their money, Romney which will disappear quickly based on the non-transparency of IG. It gives customers a false, inaccurate and misleading view of the platform, the market, their skill and of the broker. Nothing will change, but it stinks to high heaven....

  12. Hello Let's follow up. The order types market on opening (moo) and market on closing (moc) would be essential for my trading. Can't be that hard to establish. When would this be on offer?
