MT4 Demo Bug



Has anyone got any explanation on the bug on MT4 demo chart?

There is a very long wick on JPY pairs and making the chart not readable.

I don't have a live account with IG but I think it is OK on live account as shown in market data.
Other platform such as Oanda also seems good.

I think this is a bug.

I am doing backtesting and evaluating the platform at the same time. This kind of thing really throw me off.

Yes - this only occurs on IG MT4 charting.

I have other broker's demo MT4 accounts which have nothing like this data spike on ***JPY pairs.

Can IG please clan up this dirty data so my ***JPY pairs become functional again for charting purposes.


Glad I wasn't short any of these in live trading :)

got the same thing happening on my demo account.

if you scroll left or zoom in so the spike is outside your viewing region, the chart fixes itself. 

can someone from IG please sort this out.

thanks, S

I have the same issue...I see it has be running for some time and does not bode well for IG Demo.  This is the most important part of building my strategy and to not be able to backtest /JPY is unacceptable to me.

It would be nice if an IG technician could chime in here and tell us what the issue is and if it is going to get resolved or if there is something we can do to resolve it besides using a more reliable broker.

To me it smacks of an unstable platform and poor customer support...2 things I regard as deal breakers going forward.

Thought IG???

    • 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.
