    1.) I think you can not place trades with IG through trading view. 2.) All profits you earn will be automatically exchanged to the base currency of your account. Not really sure if this was your question though.

    Auto Trading Issue

    This is why I stopped using PRT. I had a strategy running live with great profit for more than 6 months without any problems. Then a platform error caused a loss of about 1500 USD. PRT refused to refund me for this loss though it was a bug in PRT that obviously caused the loss saying I used PRT on my own risk. This is where I decided to leave and I never regret this decision.

    Regulatory Changes - Retail Trader

    You can have the account in switzerland in the base currency you prefer. I have mine in SEK for example. @JinGin: I didn't try to keep mine but if Sunny Days can have two I'd assume that you also can.

    I have moved my trading to IG Swiss. Was no problem at all. I simply closed my account and opened a new one with IG Switzerland.

    Auto Trading Issue

    If you are serious about auto trading have a look at IG's API. This works very stable for me.

    No need to look overseas, just outside the EU is enough. Switzerland would be an alternative for example.

    Auto Trading Issue

    Sounds really strange. Usually stop/limit orders in PRT's auto trading are only valid for the next bar. So if you don't repeat your order every bar again it should vanish after only one bar. But this might be just another example why you shouldn't use PRT's auto trading with real money. It is a nice looking feature on the first glance but it is faulty and has many bugs that will sooner or later result in you loosing money if you try to run strategies live with it. However PRT is quite nice for constructing custom indicators and also useful to make a fast backtest of an idea.
  8. You can download IG's data through their API. Here you find some infos. https://labs.ig.com/rest-trading-api-reference/service-detail?id=539 I think there is also a video online concerning this topic. You should find it searching the forum.
  9. Anybody with an IG account and basic programming knowledge can do so. The client sentiment is easy to retrieve via the API. So you can program your own little tool to show all the sentiments you want to see, rank them or do whatever you desire.
  10. With help of the API this is no big deal to fix.
  11. Google finance stopped working some time ago but yahoo finance still works (at least for EOD). Alpha Vantage has also free intraday data.
  12. If you want to avoid overnight fees you should look at IG's "futures". They have a little bit wider spread but you can hold them until maturity without paying anything at all.

    what do other providers do better than IG....?

    People complain so often about "stop hunting" but I don't see this happening with IG. Of course I also experienced that trades went against me and just after they touched my SL they took off in the opposite direction but often I also experienced that I was extremely lucky that a limit-order for take profit was executed though price traded only for a second at that level or that price turned around just 1-2 pips before my SL was hit. If one mistrusts IG to handle the orders correctly one should stop trading CFDs and start trading real futures (for example) at the stock market. I personally do both. I have an account with IG and a second account at another broker when I want my order to be routed to an exchange. In some situations I prefer the first in other the second. Just take what is right for your need. One doesn't eat a soup with a fork...

    Market impact

    I trade mainly futures automated through IG's API. Trading shares through the API is not so good since you can't even get a quote. 😞

    Ok, so it is like I was thinking. Thanks for the confirmation. And no, I have never used DMA for options.
