I just had a quick short on FT, opened 1603 and closed for 10 points. Fills, open and close, were about 4 seconds. I don't think that there is much wrong from my end.

I use an old laptop in the afternoons, so old that Windows stopped supporting it last April. Linux still supports it, so I am using that. the Flash number for this is 11,2,202,425. That is still supported for linux computers. As long as it goes, its good enough for my purposes.

Re Finspreads Web Platform

Hey Pigbear My Finspreads WEB Platform is now up and Running! So is the Software Application. Can you Check Yours again and let me know.
Cheers Indextrader.

Yes mine is up and running Indextrader but I went into Windows 7 advanced settings then pressed reset. I have included screen prints. It now takes seconds to log in.
Thanks to everyone on the board and Merry Christmas from pigbear.

Hi Pigbear You didn't go into Windows 7 advanced setting! There is no such thing. You went into IE 11.0? Browser Advanced Settings. Big Difference. It helps to know when talking to any tech helpdesk. Strangely this morning not everything is working! Its a real pain and clear something is not right somewhere! even though nothing seems wrong at my end. I may try your reset suggestion. Cheers.

Apologies I should have stated Advanced settings in internet options in Windows 7. It works on both IE 10 and google chrome. However I am thinking about removing chrome not really impressed with the number of features that comes with it.
I am just wondering if City Index/Finspreads platform had been attacked by hackers.

Google Chrome used to be really 'Heavy' and it took over my comuter, but the latest version seems quite good. I have removed it as I am already using 2 other browsers. One of which is Firefox and this is recommended by Finspreads web site! so why they keep pushing you on to Chrome I'm not too sure.
NB I have Restored my advanced settings but I did already have FS web platform up and running ( Mostly). Beware! Restoring removes any security settings you may have entered. I did screenshots of before and after and I have a record of what was removed.
I also thought of hackers, clearly something is going on And I know they are monitoring this web site! Have a Great Xmas.

i am having trouble with finspreads,it runs so slow yet everything else works fine,am thing of reloading yosermite with a clean install,anyone else having problems with it ?
It is a bit slow but my son tells me that I need a new computer, so I am keeping a low profile on this subject!

I had to leave Windows in April '14 because they said that they were not doing anymore maintenance on the software so my son installed Linux. The trouble is that the software is too fast for the computer, although it works well enough, with patience! So, if that is what you mean by a "clean install" I would say that the computer's age and today's faster software has a lot to do with the success of the change.

proper pc.. windows 8.1.. ie11.. fast broadband

fins was ok yesterday, no speed or function issues I could recall.

it is becoming apparent from this thread that if the internet connection is dogsh!t then fins runs dogshi!t.

I would suggest checking internet before mucking around with the computer. unless everything is slow then obviously a trip to the computer shop is long overdue.

That is the problem, of course. I was trying to pick the right vocabulary. You put it so delicately, mate. I must buy a Collins, too. :)

How do you know as being in the US you are not able to have a spreadbetting account ?
I suspect jkane was just displaying all the characteristic enthusiasm, positivity and unbiased, up-to-date, accurate, well-informed, objective expertise about the spreadbetting industry for which we've come to rely on him ...

do not trade at spread betting firms
Spread Betting set up to fail
Spreads too wide
no craft to spreadbetting
only squares play at spread trading firms
spreadbetting is all luck
spread betting pure rippoff...
spreads too wide you have zero shot
Spreads rip offs in Europe
Not that I'm suggesting anyone might have an agenda of any kind, of course ...
