  1. Can we have the option to sort by Change and %Change as per the attached screenshot. We can already sort by the Name (A-Z, Z-A) or by Most Popular. Percentage movers on is great for trade ideas. It's a basic feature and would be very helpful.

  2. Is it normal for people to see ASX position not getting executed in auction especially in post closure. I have experienced placing orders well above the market price for buying but still the position was not opened

  3. IG, please communicate opening times/hours for the various markets. You are erratic on this. Sometimes you post holiday trading hours to my inbox other times not. Patchy communication! Please do better and be consistent

  4. Hi, sometimes false spikes can occur for a number of reasons but are chart artifacts and not linked to your account.

  6. Also does anyone know if an existing order will get cancelled (when I'm asleep) if the market price gets outside the 20% range? Because that will almost certainly happen many times during a trading day in volatile markets.

  7. Hi, I am trying to trade shares on GameStop and putting in Buy/Sell Limits Orders for the Day - e.g. a limit buy order for $150 and the Last Traded Price is $300 - I get the error message "Order too far from last traded price" !! But the share price is SWINGING up and down a LOT... and the price has already changed too much for you place it!! I read that there is a 20% up or down limitation across the board for all shares. I guess it's in place to stop someone adding an extra zero by mistake or something like that. BUT this is a SEVERE problem for a lot of people trading heavily o

  8. Yes this! I missed several important trades that should have happened when I'm in bed at the other side of the world. This is insane. I'm moving out of IG solely for this reason. Unfortunately it has taken a week so far to transfer my positions to another broker, and in the mean time I still can't place orders without staying awake all night watching the prices. Absolutely unnecessary. Most other brokers have "profit taker" and "loss stop" which are very basic features. So you can even set your sell price (e.g. at 10x the current price) BEFORE you even place your order to buy th

  10. Hey, We do offer company accounts. Depending on your type of business there are different options. It would be best to send us an email on helpdesk.uk@ig.com so our new business team can assist you. All the best

  11. I agree. This needs to be done ASAP. I called over the phone and they said it was not possible to lift this restriction, which is making me quite worried to be using the platform really.

  12. Is it possible to add more data points in 'positions' tab like %? If one has multiple position opens , it can be quite confusing to understand P&L position by just looking at $ value specially if market is changing so much. So if user can have % P&L next to Profit & Loss column it will help them understand the true gainers and drainers. Regards, VK

  13. This would be extremely useful. Its one of the reasons I don't trade any options with IG and use another broker.

  14. Can you please add a column in the opening positions window tp list the opening reference for each trade. I need this because I open multiple positions for the same market. In the old platform, you can click on each position and a ticket would open that shows the opening referen ce. With the new platform, when you click on a position it will only open its chart. The new platform allows you to edit stops and limits within the positions window, but it does not show the opening references for each position. So for multiple positions in the same market it is impossible to distinguish between

  15. I would like the trading analytics in the share dealing account's to visualise account balance over different time scales with the P/L e.g 1 day, 1 week,1 month, 1 Year. Dividend payment calendar with the payout amount ( show previous payments in another chart). One platform which I have seen which has lots of chart's is M1 Finance. Fractional Share's especially on the larger tech stock's such as NFLX, GOOGL, AMZN. To trade option's on individual stock's. To be able to buy cryptocurrency in a ISA account or cryptocurrency ETF's.

  17. Can you please consider upgrading the pro real time tool for v10.3 to v11. I really like this tool but we are missing out on a lot of functionality and it is nearly 2 years since the v11 was released. Thanks.

  18. I don't know if anybody uses alerts effectively as they seem bit rudimentary; i cant find a way to modify an existing alert or temporarily disable them. copying a watchlist in between SB, CFD account rather than adding from scratch. Also in PRT (out of syllabus), i wish there was a way to see how much margin is required for the quantity entered similar to web platform.

  19. Hello, my 2 pence worth, On markets like the FTSE it would be good to have an option to switch off the simulated candles, I.e only between 0800 and 1630 being displayed. The trading out of hours is not for me and I find it quite tiresome having to trawl through the charts of simulated candles. Second pence worth, When IG tv launches it brings up a box over the deal ticket and has on numerous occasions caused me to miss the moment to place trade, Same when a trade is closed due to hitting limits or stop losses. I either have to manually click on the X to close before I place a

  20. Please add the option to reset the demo account entirely. We are only able to add funds to the account and that is not always what we need. It would be better if we could reset positions, transactions and activities as well. When we are testing techniques, any other data from other techniques is not relevant. I believe this will improve the need of storing useless data in your databases, demo accounts will get a lot cleaner. Right now as an example I have more than 60 positions completely stuck and can't do anything with them. After a couple of hours they normally reset and can action

  21. Development needs for Share Dealing and ISA Accounts: - 1. A low-cost Dividend Reinvestment facility is a must - this will have huge benefits for IG as, with your commission structure, I'm confident you would attract more long-term investors by offering a DRIP facility 2. Please include all costs in the positions window (i.e. commission plus stamp duty) so that average price and profit/loss figures are accurate 3. Please improve your help desk and phone availability - responses are extremely slow or with the help desk email sometimes non-existent, which reflects very badly on IG

  22. Sorry to go on. Just wanted to add one more thing. You provide PRT access at a £30 per month value for free if we trade a certain number of times. How much would it cost for you to provide access to TradingView.com (link your APIs and whatever to their platform so we can use it to trade with IG), and if it's a similar price to PRT could I please get TradingView instead? PRT is clunky, old-fashioned, missing many useful features and French.

  23. Please assign the IG labs forums to someone that doesn't ignore messages. There must be someone that can respond to technical questions. There are posts that have been sitting there for months. https://labs.ig.com/node/702 It is very frustrating to see that there is no one to help there.

  24. Make positions P&L public through the Rest API. https://labs.ig.com/rest-trading-api-reference/service-detail?id=545 At the moment we have to calculate P&Ls based on Bid and Offer prices. There is a great level of detail in the position object but one of the most important fields is the P&L and it is missing there. The web interface shows a nice box with the calculated value that helps instantly to understand where your position is at. I believe it is just a matter of making that calculation public as it must be implemented already.

  26. That snip is from the new platform, I've never used the old as I only joined with IG a few weeks ago. Didn't even know about the old one. I've added another pic for your reference.
