ProRealtime Access to be Revoked/Charged

Recommended Posts

HI everyone, 

Just received an email from IG yesterday notifying that my access to ProRealtime will be revoked come end April due to my "trading activity" 

I will therefore have to start paying for the software from May. 

It seems that 4 round turns is no longer the standard - I made almost 260 trades last year and on about 30 trades this year. I am by no meana high volume scalper but also not the standard longer term swing trader.

Anyone else had the same experience?

They take into account the number of, and size of trades and as they must pay PRT for each user so they have a minimum limit of through put on the platform. The £30/month is still a lot cheaper than going direct to PRT which was about £50 if you really want to stay on PRT.

yeah, so I believe that it's down to the trading activity with IG in total rather than just the trading activity on the PRT platform, so you could use PRT for charting and the online platform for dealing and you would be fine.

@GavinB,  PRT is a specialist charting package that pulls in a brokers pricing and dealing feed in a similar way to tradingview, so for charting they like to present themselves as having all the bells and whistles and indeed they do, whether or not you would make use of all the additional features is another matter. 

You can download the manual and take a look.

    • 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.
