Demo Vs Live Accounts - Glitchy Web Platform



I've been trialling a demo account for the last couple of weeks and wanted to ask if it's a common thing on a live account that the web platform is always playing up. Here is a list of things that I am constantly finding wrong with the platform:

  1. Blurry candlestick charts that I have to zoom in and out of in order for them to clear up. Sometimes on a new candle (depending on time looking at it, it will flash blurry also)
  2. Trades that I enter just not appearing when I am One-Click entering a position - even when I get the notification in the top right of the screen I have entered a trade
  3. No ability sometimes to add a stop and take limit level by dragging the dotted lines to the levels on the chart I wish to set them at
  4. Not being able to close a trade when I click on it - I get a notification that says the trade doesn't actually exist or the one that does it says it cannot perform that operation right now.
  5. Timeframes I set charts to in my workspaces do not remain on these settings - I constantly have a 1 hour chart that will keep changing to a 5 min when I click away from it and back on it again.

This is for FX trading (I'm not using the account and platform for anything else). I have used different browsers, cleared my cache/cookies/history and even use incognito browser. My internet speed is checked at running at around 44mbps so it's not a connection issue either.

I'm looking for a good reliable FX broker to trade with and whilst I find the quality of other brokers platforms very good, I just don't feel comfortable executing trades on them - IG on the other hand, I am most comfortable using but the issues I continually experience, turns me off thinking about funding a live account.

Is it just demo that this happens on or is it an IG issue?

    • 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.
