It only displays the IG logo in the center of the screen but won't open the trading platform when I click on "open platform".

not sure what's happening there. The web based platform opened for me earlier this morning and again just now with no problems.

Hi I AGREE -  it does not open on new trading platform - but before selecting the IG open and look at old platform you can trade - looks like there is a problem there - as IG logo is not correct IMHO. 🙂 Tried calling tech support but no answer at present.

I have an open trade running and I can't open trading platform. The new platform won't launch. Old platform wants me to verify my information and takes me around nowhere. I tried to launch prorealtime but it won't launch either. I don't know what to do.

Hi The account is functioning on Mobile APP John AND PROVIDING CORRECT UP TO DATE PRICES FOR US SHARES

I can verify this by my account on Hargreaves Lansdown

- but IG support not answering the phone at the time of post - most unusual.

V surprised not reported by anyone else.

Mobile now working for me too. I also managed to launch prorealtime but it won't show my open trades. Mobile does. I wonder why the trading platform on website isn't working though.

Hi, still no problem for me, take a look at some problem solving ideas on this page (for new platform about half way down)

https://www.ig.com/uk/help-and-support/charts/ig-charts/why-are-my-ig-charts-not-working?ref=FlashPDLeverage

Thanks, it helped. Looks like I have a Chrome problem and not an IG one as the new platform worked just fine on firefox just now. It's the chrome that needs fixing, thanks a lot.

https://deal.ig.com/wtp/ still won't open for me. - FIX WITH MICROSOFT EDGE USE

I got to speak to helpdesk for 45 mins yesterday 

 and IT IS a chrome issue - they will fix it later but - as now using Microsoft Edge with FULL capacity - suggest to use this as has excellent reviews as a substitute for chrome - may well do myself.

Regards

David

what does 'full capacity' mean, someone told me there was an 'Edge Chromium' but when I looked on the MS web site it said I already had Edge but it didn't seem any faster to me playing around for a day?

It's got the same underlying engine as Chrome and yet strangely it doesn't perform as well for me as Chrome does.  Firefox is worst of all (possibly because it blocks all the cr@p that wants to track your every movement)

Hi briefly trying Edge out out and looked ok - but only to solve my immediate problem - have Edge on one screen and Chrome on the second and works fine - will have to look at the set up to fix of chrome going forward

I haven't had any problems using Chrome.

Hi,

 

It is something to do with my settings in Chrome causing the problem - will fix later - have a work around at present by using Microsoft Edge (new version from 2020 which IS superior to old one supposedly)

I had the same IG logo screen and problem too.

But works fine if I use Edge. 

I noticed the problem with Chrome came soon after I rejected a strong recommendation by Microsoft to adopt Edge as the default web browser. Maybe Microsoft has somehow interfered with the Chrome but I have no proof to back it up.

Same here on Wednesday 8th July. The problem is still unresolved. I tried clearing the cache - did not solve.

Hi @David30b @dmedin @Caseynotes,

We found that it was a problem for all users who have BitDefender installed, it creates extensions in certain browsers such as Chrome, Firefox and Safari which then blocks the New Web Trading Platform from loading up. The easiest way to get around it when using chrome is to type chrome://extensions/ in the URL field, then disable the BitDefender extensions. 

Our developers are working on a permanent solution as it may happen after every BitDefender update. 

Hope that helps.

Anton

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • 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.
