IG Customer Service not answering Emails?


Recommended Posts

 

So I already send 3 mails to the german customer service, but haven't gotten an offical answer yet, I tried calling but hung up after an hour. This is my mail:

I am interested in trading during the extended hours. I have some questions about order execution.

1. When are the CFD orders forwarded (HFT provider?)? Who takes the opposite position in a CFD trade (CFD Trade in Extended Hours)? What sources do you use to find a counterparty?

2. When can orders in extended hours trading not be executed? Would it be more likely that the order cannot be executed during the earnings announcement / in the case of high volatility / jumps? Could a buy order at $ 460 and a sell order at $ 470 have been executable in today's after-hour trading at Netlix? I attached the chart with purchases / sales every second at the moment of publication of the quarterly figures.

3. Slippage: What tolerance limits has IG set as the default? How can I expand / reduce this? For example: If I want to enter a CFD buy order at 460, can I set a slippage of $ 5? 

 

Would be much appreciated if I could get an official answer from IG

Hi, you might get an 'official' reply from IG on the forum but then again you might not. I can answer some questions that you can check on IG's price execution web pages.

IG use a large number of liquidity providers who are all the usual suspects such as major banks, exchanges, hedge and pension funds as well as other large institutions.

IG first match shorts and longs in house from their 200,000 clients. Unmatched positions are parallel hedged where IG takes a same position as you and so if you win they also win and pass the profit on to you, If you lose they also lose and pass the profit onto the liquidity provider. It's a win/win for IG for though they don't get the whole spread as the do when matching in house they do profit because they get a far better spread than what the pass on to you.

Entry orders might not be executed if the gap between the order and the current price exceeds certain tolerances during periods of high volatility and low liquidity, the price specified may simply not exist due to gaps in the price ladder. Exit orders do get executed and may, for the above reason, suffer slippage. 

The MT4 platform has a basic check box for high or low tolerance to entry slippage (don't know if it actually works) but I don't think that is available on the web based platform. I've not seen a function that allows you to set a slippage tolerance amount.

Thank you, have you traded in pre/AH Market before? Is it possible to get filled on extreme breakouts like on earnings?

I don't trade those markets myself but I would think IG would be quite good at supplying prices and they do say in their blurb for offering extended hours one of the main reasons was to enable traders to take advantage of price moves on earnings releases etc.

    • US DOLLAR TALKING POINTS: The US Dollar has dropped by as much as 3.3% from the high that was set last Wednesday and many are asking if the USD has topped. Given how aggressively overbought the greenback had become, this retracement looks to be a correction in the trend with no evidence yet of anything larger. However – price is approaching some major supports and performance around those levels will be key for determining near-term strategy. Of particular importance is the fact that the US Dollar is a composite of global currencies so the bigger question is when sell-offs in EUR/USD or GBP/USD might return and, in a related item, how will USD/JPY hold up with the pair pegged to the 145 level thought to be the line-in-the-sand for Japan’s Ministry of Finance?

    • EUR/USD and GBP/USD edge up while USD/JPY falters at ¥145.00 again A pause in the dollar rally sees USD/JPY stuck below recent highs, but both the euro and sterling have made gains in early trading against the greenback.    Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 04 October 2022  EUR/USD rebound continues After falling to a twenty-year low last month, the euro continues to rebound against the US dollar with EUR/USD. This still looks very much like a counter-trend bounce that sees the price head back to the 50-day simple moving average (SMA), currently $1.1018 and then begins to falter. This would be in line with previous bounces since April, all of which have found it impossible to hold above the 50-day SMA. This move could see the price head back to $1.01. Further targets lie at $1.02 and then $1.0374. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD recovers $1.13 The GBP/USD continues to defy the doomsters with a recovery above $1.13. Its own counter-trend bounce remains intact, and if previous bounces are any guide there is still some potential for upside, even if it only reaches the 50-day SMA. Like EUR/USD, the pound is still making lower highs and lower lows against the dollar, with the previous peak at $1.176 marking out the initial target for this bounce. Both stochastics and moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) have room to move up to support this move, but selling the rallies still appears to be the approach here for this downtrending market, although it looks like for now there is still a desire to push the pair higher in the short-term. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY stalls below ¥145.00 It does look like ¥145.00 is the ceiling in USD/JPY for the time being – repeated attempts to break higher have come to naught, despite the continued strength of the US dollar. Indeed, it is perhaps precisely that we need a pullback in order for the trend to revive. The pair rallied hard from the August-lows, and now sits at some distance from the 50-day SMA (currently ¥139.15). A pullback towards this level might ‘clear the air’, create a higher low and provide a springboard for fresh bullish momentum. Source: ProRealTime
