  1. Hi all, basic question here. I like to kid myself that I'm a "bit of a coder" and I'm currently enjoying putting together a few PRT (ProRealTime) scripts that seem to do what I expect them to do. Obviously I am authoring and testing these scripts on the demo account which is great because you get the live feed data but without the threat of a script doing something stupid and bankrupting you. I'd like to do this on the weekends, as I have the time. Problem is that I can't find a market that is "Open" on weekends, that is giving live data. There are the Bitcoin markets but at the mome
  2. Hi, back at the end of November 2020, Reuters posted an article[1] saying how the Dax/German 30 would be expanding to 40 constituent stocks rather than the 30 that it is currently made from. Just wondering what are peoples' thoughts and opinions on how that move might affect the "behaviour" of the DAX? Will it make it more or less volatile, responsive? Make it more or less 'predictable'? There are no right or wrong "answers" as I'm just trying to gauge how more knowlegable/experienced minds think this move will affect the German 30. Cheers. [1] https://www.reuters.com/article/deuts
  3. Hi all, I've looked on the ProRealtime website, done a search on the web but I can't seem to find the manuals (PDFs) for ProBacktest and ProBuilder for ProRealtime V11. The ones that are available are for V10.3. I'm guessing/hoping that there's not too much changed in the coding semantics between V10.3 and V11, but it'd be nice to know for sure. Does anyone know if there's are V11 manuals available and, if so, where could I download them from? Thanks.
  4. Without knowing what instrument you were trying to trade this is mainly a guess on my part. IG imposes minimum stop distances on trades. It's likely that the stop level you're trying to set ($286 - $244 = $42, roughly 15%) is too small for that particular instrument. One way you can check the minimum stop distance is to look at the instrument through the web interface, click the circled "i" (letter 'i' in a circle) in the top-right corner of the screen. It'll give you the "key information" for that particular instrument. For example, here's a screencap of the "key information" for tra
  5. Start up this morning, looking to see if I can take a few small bites from the market. Start up ProRealtime and make coffee while that starts up. It took a minute or two before I noticed that the PRT screen looked "different" to what I was expecting on the live account. It was a P|RT 11 setup and not PR|T 10.3. I checked and 'Yes' I was on my live account. So it seems that PRT 11 is now available on live accounts as well as the demo. Thank you Santa, and his team of helpers over at IG, of course!
  6. I don't know if this is just me and my account but the cuurent state of play, from my point of view is that: - I get PRT 11 on my "Demo" account, and - I get PRT 10.3 on my "Live" account! This causes a bit of a 'cognitive disconnect', especially at the start of the day before the coffee's kicked in. I don't know what IG's plans are, whether they're beta-testing PRT11 on the demo service to make sure it doesn't break much/anything before going live with it or maybe they're waiting for the "big money" traders to move their scripts over to PRT11 format (not much of a change as far as I
  7. First thing this morning, sign in, start up PRT (I'm currently "between contracts" and it beats hell out of daytime TV!) and did some research with PRT which was V10. Sign out and back in an hour or two later to see "Boom! ProRealTime V11!". It looks "cleaner", more C21 style design, chews up a bit more system memory. My cobblecode "indicator" still seems to work. I like the new-style transaction markers on the screen. Trying to put fibonacci retracements on the chart takes a little bit of work. But "Well done, IG!"
  8. Hi, sorry if this is a late reply. I think what you need to do is increase the amount of historical data PRT loads when it starts. If you look to the top-LEFT of the trading window you should see a dropdown box, probably labeled "200 units". I think that's the default value it uses. To the RIGHT of that label you should see a downward triangle, click on that and you should get a dropdown menu. It should look similar to the one in the graphic I've attached. Try clicking on a higher number of units, say 1000 units. That should load historical data going back 1000 "units" where a "unit" is
