  1. Hi , How do I change my account's base currency? Regards Stefan
  2. Hi , How do I change the base currency for my live MT4 account? Mine is currently in GBP, but I would like it in USD. Regards Stefan
  3. Further to your points re. quality of data... I find IG's data for stocks to be of limited use as it does not include end-of-day market auction closing prices. This means that all charts and all %chg columns are incorrect as it is based on the previous day's close prices prior to the auction. So, a simple question like how much a stock is up/down on the day cannot be answered by looking at the columns or reading the charts. I brought this up with IG years ago, but sadly it does not seem important enough to change. All other trading and charting packages that I use make use of the "true" (market auction) close prices. for your comment.
  4.  Posted this in August. No response. I am starting to question whether I should continue to contribute to this community. Seems like a huge lack of commitment from IG. I spend quite a lot of time and effort on these suggestions to try to help to better your offerings - I really don't have to. Again, am I wasting my time? Should I rather post these on www.prorealtime.com?
  5. @ Two weeks no response... should I bother with these?
  6. H iIG, Just had a look on the Prorealtime web site: https://trading.prorealtime.com/en/brokerage/cfd-forex-trading. It states that if you sign up with PRT through IG that you get: Premium version at no extra cost with up to 4 times more historical data So, my question is: Why do I have the Complete version of PRT and not the Premium version? Benefits of the Premium version: Up to 4 times more historical data Display up to 100 charts simultaneously Display up to 10 lists of instruments simultaneously Premium market scans and automatic trading 8 advantages of the Premium version Regards Stef
  7. Hi, Why do you not display your margin requirements (percentages) in your watchlists? This should be available as a column. Example:
  8.  Not sure you read this right. He was asking for the functionality to have a trailing stop (not guaranteed) along with a guaranteed stop (that is fixed).
  9. Hi All, Currently, when you set up a system to autotrade, you can set it up for one instrument and one timeframe only. If you have developed a strategy that works on more than one instrument, it can take a very long time to set this up to run for each instrument. Why not have the ability to choose a list (watchlist) of instruments to trade the strategy on? I would probably set this so that you would have to do this per timeframe; daily, 15min, etc. I currently have a system that I would like to trade on 40+ stocks. The way it works now, I would have to set the strategy to run for each stock individually (very time consuming). Also, I will have 40+ systems running on ProOrder - for this strategy only. And the stats will also be calculated and displayed per instrument - so there is no easy way of knowing how the strategy is performing over all stocks. Does anyone else think that this would be useful? Regards Stef
  10.  Can you still access the video? I get: "This video has been removed by the user."
  11. Hi , Please do. I can already export market data in realtime to Excel on other platforms I trade on (like IRESS). I just can't do it with IG and IG instruments; like the SA Cash 40, etc. Regards Stef
  12. Hi, Has anyone used the realtime DDE Export functionality in PRT? Does the ProRealtime DDE Export functionality work for IG customers, as explained here: https://www.prorealtime.com/en/help-manual/dde-data-export I get up to point 6, but then do not see the option in PRT: Click on the Options menu from the ProRealTime Main window and verify that "Export DDE" is activated.Thanks Stef
  13. Hi Dan, This can be done without the need for any integration and/or sharing of client information. All that is needed in PRT is a place where the user can specify his/her email address. They can then handle the alerting from their side. They already provide SMS alerting from their side (not available to IG customers). Come to think of it, without any additional work, why can this not be made available to IG clients? If cost, then please ask them to add the email alerting functionality. Regards Stef
  14. Hi Dan, The functionality to top up funds is not available for demo accounts, see below: I was told by your helpdesk that this was not possible - resetting an account - and was told to create a new one!? So, if this is possible, maybe you should tell them. PS: I still think that this functionality should be built into the platform. Regards Stef
  15. Hi All, Is there a way to reset your demo account (without creating a new one, by using a different email address)? I am busy testing a number of ProTrader strategies and use my demo account for this purpose. Before each run, I would like to reset my demo account history (trade history, capital, profit, etc.), to enable easy comparison. At the moment there is already quite a bit of history in my demo account. At a minimum (if nothing else can be done), I would like to be able to set/reset the starting capital amount. Is there a way to do this? Does anyone have any suggestions? Is this something that can be added? Regards Stef
  16. Something else that I would like to see for PRT is Email/SMS alerts. Not just for "normal" alerts that you set up, but also for ProScreeners. Regards Stef
  17. Hi All, Alerts are a great way of being notified of something that has happened/is happening. It just doesn't mean much if you cannot remember why you set the alert in the first place. It would be great if, when you create an alert, it recorded the date and time stamp, and allowed you to enter some notes that then gets displayed when the alert is triggered - for instance, why this event is important, what to do, etc, etc. Some additional enhancements: - Run once - if you set an alert to trigger when the price crosses a specific level as an example, you would not want to necessarily be alerted about this every few seconds, as the price keeps crossing over and under this level - the pricing crossing a level is not as important as the price "sticking" above/below a certain level. Currently, you have to keep dismissing the event - if you do not want to delete it. - Snooze - same as above, or in addition to the above - the ability to "snooze" the alert for x number of minutes so that you are not constantly being notified about the same event occuring. - Validity period - for example: "today only" - only fire the event today. If the event does not occur today, then delete it as I am no longer interested in this. Currently you have to manually delete events. - Run at a specified time. Currently, if you set an alert on a daily chart to fire "on current bar close," it will fire at midnight - not much sense in that! If the market that I am trading closes at 5pm, I might want to check conditions being met for openind and/or closing positions at 4:45pm. Or in the morning, before or after the market auction. Either way, by being able to specify a specific time, it would solve both issues. Anyone else agrees? Anything I've left out? Thanks!
