Chart not working on Chrome for PC



Chart window is opening, but there is no content within it. I have updated my Adobe Flash as per the instructions somewhere in the support pages. The charts still won't load though... any appropriate ways to fix this problem?

I lost chart functionality around 12pm today - is there a current known issue?


2 seperate PC's both using Chrome (have also tried Internet Explorer, no better).

Connected via Telstra.

Telstra Mobile shows charts OK on iPhone.
Based in SE QLD

Thanks in advance

Hello all, I have a chrome book and this also wont run PRT  , the reason for this is chrome will not run anything in java, I asked at PC world if there is a fix or app, sorry there is no fix yet, try installing Firefox on your PC this will work this is what I have done on mine

hope this helps

So I've enabled chrome to run flash for allowed websites, and explcitly whitelisted ig.com, but Chrome is still blocking flash and not able to launch charts (BTW, I was able to launch charts yesterday). Microsoft Edge browser is also broken - can't launch charts. And google think they can design a self driving car!!!


Update: I launched IG in chrome incognito mode, and when launching the charts, I get a message saying flash is not installed. This is incorrect as I've reinstalled the flash plugin for chrome, and flash works at other websites such as speedtest.net.


I'm starting to thing the problem is actually on IG's webservers now. Is anyone able to view the flash charts today on chrome or edge?

Hi koala, Have you tried following Earthalien's advice (a couple of entries above yours)? I had exactly the same problem as you, but found that worked. Here are the steps:


As of september 2017 I got my charts back  on chrome by doing:


menu  ( three black dots top right near the  star )


advanced settings ( right at bottom of page, scroll down as far as you can go)

content setttings

Flash settings 

Allow sites to run Flash

dont ask first !

TME - cheers for that. My flash settings don't have the option to allow all sites - I have to select ask first - see screen snippet. And I have added ig.com to the whitelist sites also. I've also restarted chrome (version 62.0.3202.75 (Official Build) (64-bit)).


The sooner IG abandons the dead Adobe flash and moves to HTML5 the better for us all. This flash plugin is not working in my Chrome or Microsoft Edge browser - whereas it was working last week.


Have you seen any other tips or pointers to try apply to get flash working again?

Yes, I agree, Adobe flash is quite a nuisance, and time for something new.


The 'ask first' (or rather 'don't ask first') might be quite important. I haven't experimented with this (don't dare!) as my charts are working OK for the time being.


Sorry, but I don't have any other suggestions at present. Hope you can find an alternative solution soon.

I've got the exact same issue. Charts haven't been working for 2 days now. Tried on other computer at another location and same thing. IE, Foxfire and Chrome. None work and I've tried everything suggested in the recent threads for the same issue. This is an IG Markets issue. 


I'll post another thread to make IG Markets wake up and listen instead of saying it's a computer issue. Something is wrong with their web platform.

I'm having the same problem, I have tried the above solutions and it does not work.

There are some very odd features about this problem

1. Flash works on all other sites that need it apart from IG on my computer

2. It does not work on chrome or edge but does work on my phone through the app

3. If I newly install flash it works, but as soon as I reboot it stops working


I don't think it's an IG sever issue as it works on my phone

Can any tech gurus help?

'At the top of the IG browser page in the url click on the padlock icon, click on Flash Allow, not Ask, (may need to go via 'site settings'), then exit and click on the banner prompt to Reload page.'

Works for me. Thank you. M

On the chrome browser there will be a small icon that comes up on the right corner at the end of the webaddress, which says that "the site is prevented from setting cookies", click that and when you go to settings menu, take the tick off from the following::
Block third-party cookies
Prevent third-party websites from saving and reading cookie data
the next moment you will see the charts, it happened to me for charles schwab charts too.

    • 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.
