Question

Is there are known issue with the MT4 data feeds recently?  Multiple times the feed has just been freezing... just today, 1 minute before the US open I have an EIGHT MINUTE gap in data.  I have tried switching to alternative data centers to no avail... is this a known issue and is it being dealt with?

can't see any gaps on my  feed.  There has been 2 occasions lately of the live feed being interrupted, Monday at 16:30 for 10 minutes and Tuesday at 16:30 for 5 minutes but haven't seen anything today. The service is usually very good, can't remember the last time there was a problem

Once the data feed reestablishes itself the historical data is filled in, obviously it's most noticeable if you are trading the lowest timeframes where, like just now, at 14:29 I am watching the S&P500 and get 8 straight minutes of no data during the open.

My own connection is fine, I even opened the IG web platform and could see the price updates, but MT4's data feed was dead.

I have seen this happen multiple times this week alone, just wanted to know if this is something that IG knows about and whether is being investigated?

ok that's odd, I see the gap on the time scale of the S&P but there was no connection drop out sound warning and the gaps on the previous days where actual gaps on the chart itself.

Yes! I experienced this approximately 35 minutes ago where MT4 was completely frozen. The platform froze as I tried to close my Sell Positions right before the AUD/USD spike. This resulted in a $174.87 AUD Loss. Have been on hold with IG for over 30 minutes now seeking a refund.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
