  1. Tired of the endless battles with your s/ware. Tired of the endless changes that invariable make the experience worse. What is going on? I can no longer see my balance in Safari and when I refreshed a window (rhs) it now has no template and I cannot even pull up the Apply menu for "save as/apply/delete" - it's totally unresponsive and all I have is a chart with candles ticks and no on chart and below chart indicators. Tired of logging in on one window and never knowing if I'll get "go to platform" on the other 4 windows or not and have to log in separately. Tired of doing any changes that then REFRESH ALL the other windows. Tired of the long phone waits to get through to support. Apple have stated for the record Chrome is a memory hog. My activity app confirms this as since downloading it yesterday it's using 52% CPU for one of the 5 windows and 39% for the other --->>> RIDICULOUS. I have to have my Havit cooler fan turned on help cool this top of the range Macbook Pro as the fans are RACING. So please tell me why you don’t cater to the biggest computer company in the world aka Apple? Tell me what's so good about those criminals at Google who have developed the most sophisticated piece of spyware the internet has ever seen? IG used to be a great company but I have already set up accounts with Saxo broker and may pull the plug after 10 years.
  2. Is anyone else as sick to death of these markets now, since the days before the 2008 crash? We don't have free markets and price discovery. We have a centrally planned ponzi scheme with the market completely at the mercy and whims of policy statements from these a-hole bankers . We have idiotic Trump tweets along with clowns like Boris Johnson announcing proudly that he's "turbocharging preparations for a no deal brexit," -- which crashed the £ only for it to rally on platitudes offered my Merkel and Rotschild (sic) puppetician Macron. This is not captialism. This is communism.
  3. Please name me one company you've ever contracted with that feels it’s acceptable to make an arbitrary evaluation and use a hidden fee structure based on the "magical 4 trades" that then turns out - having myself taken 4 trades myself last month and been charged - not to be acceptable and you get charged? It's unprofessional. I wouldn't mind the fees so much were it not for the constant never ending stream of tech problems using PRT (been on it for 2.5 years) and it's been noticeably worse since the "upgrade" to version v10.3. Faults including but not limited to: 1) Flashing repeated messages of "do I want to save changes before closing this window" when I'm modifying an indicator's code. This flashes about 10+ times and then stops so I can actually hit save. 2) Greyed out auto trading assists: I'm getting greyed out rules in a system and so I have to delete the rules and then reimplement them to get it to work every single time I login for a fresh session and launch the system. Deleted the whole system and recreated it.. only to find the next day that the rules are greyed out and un-editable in simple assisted creation. 3) Indicators that fail to load below the main price chart in their own separate window and end up squashed at the bottom of the main price chart - very hit and miss as they will load correctly most of the time. 4) Closing out of running trading auto systems "due to a technical error." This happens all to frequently. 4 out of 5 systems stopped withing a bout a week since a 20th July launch. 5) Occasional missing results page on backtesting a system or drawdown figure. etc etc.. PRT cited some other tech issues I had, on my last computer - a Macbook Pro 17" now that I have a new Macbook Pro 15" Touchbar with 16gb of memory and a 3.1ghz chip and with no other faults on any other single piece of software I use, are they still going to pass it off as user error whilst charging me for the privilege? Because PRT can't replicate the faults doesn't mean I imagined them or they didn't occur. The least they could do is actually acknowledging the problems exists and own the problem. Having said all this, what is the point of creating an otherwise amazing platform with all the bells and whistles on, if you have to spend half your time investigating issues and writing support tickets and have little confidence that systems won't be stopped due to tech glitches? Wondering now if I should've stuck with The TurtleTrader Curtis Faith's Trading Blox s/ware..
