  1. LOL Sorry, I didn't realise !! Thanks for taking the time to dig that out Caseynotes. Very thoughtful of you ✔✔✔👍👍👍
  2. Hi Herald, Thanks a million, this has solved the problem immediately. Much appreciated!
  3. Thanks for the reply Caseynotes, I have cleared the cache and run Ccleaner and it is the same. The chart works if I left click on it and it opens in the main platform page but when I right click and "open in a new window" it just sits there frozen like a screenshot. I noticed that in the top right corner of the chart when in new window mode there is a notification that says "This page was prevented from setting cookies". I don't know if that is relevant to the problem but I went onto settings and checked that cookies and notifications are allowed from IG. Thanks again
  4. Hi all, I had a windows update 2 days ago and now when I open the charts they do not move. They open normally but then there is no candle movement. The platform page is showing price movements so I don't think it's a flash problem. This happened a few years ago but I cannot remember what the solution was. Any advice please? Thanks
  5. Keep away from Alpari if I were you. They seem to lurch from one financial crisis to another and several complaints about a dishonest platform. There is no need to go to fx brokers such as these, plenty of reliable and proven brokers out there. If you are particularly interested in binary options then that will make it a tad mote difficult for you.
  6. Thanks for the detailed reply. There is hope after all then:) But I doubt they will reverse what they have started, I suppose best we can hope for is a slackening of the leverage rules. Have to say though that the negative balance rule is a blessing for the retail trader.
  7. Hi Sunny Days, What's this about a 3 month trial re ESMA? This is the first I have heard of this. Thanks
  8. I think it is too much for an Ombudsman to deal with as if memory serves then they arbitrate and deal with complaints within existing laws and regs. Maybe somebody will take it higher to the EU court of human rights? The ridiculous thing about ESMA is that anybody can still go out and put £50,000 on a horse if they want to as it is their money and they can do as they please with it. Maybe a legal eagle can spot a breach in the ruling that infringes on the rights of EU citizens to trade? ESMA is a perfect case of regulating simply to justify their own existence.
  9. Exactly!!! That's the only way that some of the 90% will end up in the 10% profit group!!
  10. I was told by a US firm that the rules will still be applied to me by them as I am an EU citizen. Maybe they just sensed I was small fry and they couldn't be bothered to open an a/c for me....not worth their time etc. A the article says, I suppose it's open to interpretation. And....as we know, IG have invited those who interested to open new IG a/c's in their overseas offices.
  11. I see what you mean!!! I had to go and lie down in a dark room!!!!!!!!!!
  12. Just curious as to why their are margin differences between DAX and FTSE. Both are in the major indices group re leveraging but DAX is almost double the required margin of what the FTSE is.
