  1. Hi Casey, Thank you for trying to help. I'm using a demo version at the moment whilst I get used to the software- so maybe this is the reason. I'm not sure. I've tried your suggestions but not had any success. As it stands - on my Account History - if i make a gain of 14 points - this is entered into the profit column as 18.63. Ratio 1.3307 - which is roughly cable conversion - hence my question. What I shall do, is continue for a while and if I decide to use Metatrader properly , I'll contact IG tech dept to see if there is a resolution to this. I just wondered if there was something I was missing... Thanks for taking the time though to post a reply ...much appreciated.
  2. Hi Dan, Just noticed your reply on this. I tried to post some screen shots but kept getting error messages. The solution is that when you go to launching an Auto Trade - there is a small box at the bottom that asks for maximum trade size. This could be interpreted as maximum stake per trade (as I thought it was) but it isn't actually this. It refers to the number of actual trades. So if you were launching an Auto Trade that traded 2PP and the code added to this position subsequently , you need to ensure that the number in the small box is >2. So for example if you added 5 trades all at 2 PP = the number in the small box needs to be 10. Hope you followed this !
  3. I'm kind of quite liking MT4 but still familarising myself with it. One aspect I'm curious about: Is it possible to alter the base currency from USD to GBP. The Account History converts all results after converting to USD ( atleast I think this is what it's doing). So is there a way to change the base currency. Many thanks in advance. Regards
  4. Hi - The issue. I'm running this on a demo a/c. Auto Trade sends the first order to IG Demo a/c but not subsequent orders although they are listed on the PRT order list ? Not sure if it's a setting on PRT or IG All suggestions greatly appreciated, Many Thanks Hugh
  5. Hi, Just wondered if anyone could suggest why I can't get PRT to start on a Macbook. Java starts - but PRT doesn't appear too. I've done all the security stuff (Preferences) and all that. Just wondered if it was some thing so simple that I've overlooked. Thanks for any suggestions. Running Mavericks, Firefox, Java (up to date) - done everything possible !
