Last candle SLOW to display - Android



Is anyone else having this same problem?


Problem: Using the IG Android App, the last candle is slow to display on daily chart. Especially on reliable but slower connections.



Background & further info...

Intraday data displays instantly, but last candle of intraday data is same issue. Main issue is for the daily chart and final candle.


Helpdesk tells me that I am the only one reporting the issue. I find that hard to believe, as i have a seperate account and login for my SMSF and i have tried loggin in using my phone and other connections with the same problem. Tried uninstall and re-install still same problem. Also getting blank screen for first chart request, but clears when intraday data selected and daily data selected back, but thats not the main issue. Its waiting the 5-30 seconds just to see the final candle on the daily chart.


CMC markets doesnt have this problem, the final candle displays instantly just as quickly as IG displays most of its intraday data (just not the final candle) same con, same device.


Try it for yourselves, even with faster connections, you will notice that the final candle on the daily chart is slow to load. Is anyone else having this annoying problem??

Hi  I tried to replicate this issue on an Australian account on our test Android device however the latest daily candle always appeared straight away, alongside the other candles.


Are you using mobile data or WiFi when this issue happens? Also please share a screenshot showing how your chart looks before and after the latest candle has loaded.


What phone and version of Android are you using? Any other info would be helpful.

    • 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.
