  1. thanks for the update @who - I'll certainly flag the demo account for a passive review just to make sure there isn't an underlying issue. All the best, and always feel free to reach out if something isn't performing as expected.
  2. At it's most basic level (with a caveat that this is an indicator for educational purposes and there are more complexities such as internal risk limits etc) if you were to short £1/pt of a UK listed company, and you were the only one who was looking to short that company on the IG platform, IG would look to go to market to short 100 shares in that company and hedge your position. IG offer you the opportunity to not own the underlying shares, however we do not bet against you and therefore would hedge your trade in the underlying market.
  3. I guess the most simple answer could be the reason here (as this isn't expected behavior and we haven't had other reports of this) but are you logged in to the same account on both devices? Can you check but making sure these two locations marry up? (MyIG on desktop and account number on mobile).
  4. great thanks for the context - we'll reach out to the team behind it and let you know as soon as we have an answer. If there are others who are using this feature and it's causing MT4 to crash - please let me know by commenting on this thread.
  5. Is this in relation to the following? Assume ASX? In it's simplest form, your open position would be exactly the same amount up - i.e. £180 better off.
  6. Hey casey - I've passed this on to @TimP who is reaching out directly to those who own the plugin. I don't think we've had other reports outside this thread so it does seem a strange one and not related to MT4 specifically. I imagine I know the answer, but would you like a call RE: basic troubleshooting on MT4?
  7. Below gives a snapshot answer to recession worries. Due to the recent trade war events, Goldman now estimates a cumulative drag on GDP of 0.6%, including a 0.2% drag from the latest escalation. You can also read more about Goldman Sachs slashing US GDP growth forecast as US-China trade war continues here.
  8. Hey folks - let me get our Trading Services IT team on this. Apologies the thread slipped past this morning.
  9. Hey all - please note that we have just released H-A candles.

  12. Heikin-Ashi candles are now available on the IG trading platform for both desktop and mobile. This feature has been one of the more highly requested additions to charts as these types of candles are commonly used by traders looking at identifying trends visually without the need of complex analysis. How can I see Heikin-Ashi candles on the IG dealing platform? Turning on Heikin-Ashi candles is simple. If you want to see these candles; Simply open the main menu by right clicking on the charts Navigate to “Types” and bring up the second menu list Select “Heikin-Ashi” - the candles will appear straight away How are Heikin-Ashi candles different from regular HLOC candles? You can read more about what Heikin-Ashi candlestick are on IG.com, but to see a simple visual on the difference and how these could be used for identifying possible trends, just check out the charts below. Both charts are the same time fame on the same asset, one with regular candles and the other with Heikin-Ashi candles.

  13. Beat me to the notification! I will be updating all those who have queried this tomorrow - both on and off Community.
  14. Sorry this one slipped by - I don't believe this is on the roadmap, but I'll certainly feed it back to our developers.
  15. Unfortunately this isn't possible, however I'll add your request to our client list to contact once DRIP is available.
