  1. Happening across markets and yesterday too
  2. May I suggest that all charting the markets presenters standardise on the @JeremyNaylor_IG presentation style of charts whose features are easily visible to the viewer. Where you draw your lines and what indicators you use of course is your individual expression of talent. But at least give the viewer a solid foundation with sufficient resolution and clarity. Thank you D600
  3. Hello Where can I find the exchange rate used to reflect the real time account balance? So if the account is a EUR account and the markets traded are USD I can see the exchange rate on a statement at the end of the day, but where can I find it real time, as it is very different from spot. Thanks D600

  5. Hi guys Is there a way for rolling over a forward position (before expiry) outside of settings for a single product on a one-off basis? Or do you just modify settings at the appropriate time, only to change settings back again afterwards? Thanks, D
  6. @JamesIG James - How does one do a one time rollover of a forward, i.e. outside of settings? Phone up, Or does one have to switch on and off the settings at the appropriate time?
  7. @JamesIG Thank you for your response. You might advise when you expect to address the flag suggested. Thanks again
  8. @TrendFollower @andysinclair @JamesIG Thank you for your responses. I thought there might have been a way on the IG platform I had missed, but apparently not.
  9. @JamesIG / @Caseynotes further to this, more recently I have encountered many trading situations where the system refuses the LIMIT position saying the position is too far from current market price. An example last year was I wanted to enter a long position on the VIX when it was at 11 and you refused to take a LIMIT at 20. I never placed the trade and it ended up blowing past 30. More recently I wanted to trade Natural gas products and eventually ended up on an EFT (perish the thought), the risk/reward was 1:1.7 and the LIMIT was refused. REALLY? So if we don't have a LIMIT and the market moves fast we cannot close out (even over fifteen minutes!), and then when we want to place a LIMIT you restrict the profitability of the trade. You also seem to have platform problems where yesterday I was entering a limit in the Position page and the system would not take it, I then went to the chart and moved the limit line. Refresh, Back and forth and eventually got it entered. Something not right there - maybe I am over challenging its capabilities. I don't have time to day trade, so don't trade very often, but there is too much built-in frustration. You can never login with the confidence you can trade - you never know what next will pop-up to prevent a deal and the opportunity is missed. Which is probably why pro traders tell me to go elsewhere.
  10. Hi @Caseynotes Yes you can do the same in the actual market trading screen with the info button at the top right - but it still does not tell you the market cannot be sold to open. This fact is also inconsistent across markets i.e. in the dealing process the info arrives at different stages. Bottom line is you could be doing some market research on trade set-up, at the end of which you eventually discover the market isn't even tradable. This of course is utter nonsense. IG should take down products that are not tradeable - in particular the forwards. All furcoat and a padlocked chastity belt.....
  11. Hello, How can I display markets from two different accounts at the same time on screen? Opening in a new window does not resolve. Thanks guys.
  12. Comment replicated here as probably better placed here than Tech Support for Platform or App IG, Could you please flag markets that are not open to trade on the screen prior to Place deal, or other activities are performed. So if you have closed down one side of the market for what ever reason , the flag should make it obvious to a trader before doing any analysis or attempting to place a trade and get a THIS MARKET MAY NOT BE SOLD TO OPEN message. Many thanks again.
