Serious IG issue the last few days?


SixEight

Question

Hi All,

I've tried emailing support with a pretty pathetic response, the last 3 days I have been trying to place trades on my demo account, with variable results via IG and PRT: 

  1. The trade appears not to be placed but then PRT sends me a notification it hit my stop loss
  2. The trade appears not to be placed but my P/L is moving, despite no positions being open (image attached)

Why is this happening? I'd understand volatility and being unable to place a trade, but surely trades shouldn't be placed/accepted if you can't actually see or control them?

My Demo account just dies UK lunchtime/US Open - cant open close trades - just freezes/unresponsive.
Essentially unusable & not fit for purpose - support and tech deptd support dont help - just kids with no answer or IT techies who say at times of high volume resources are diverted to the main platform. Basically there is no Demo acc in the mid afternoon session & the support staff have zero power or desire to fix. Does anyone know a service where the demo actually works?

Have to agree, the email I received yesterday just said 'we want to work with you, not against, any losses we reimburse' - completely missed the point!

The platform is now showing I have a position of £1/point but it should be £3.5/point

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG

A turn down could find some initial support in the 5700s, but the low at 5628 is the big level to watch. Broad outlook is of course very similar to the DAX.   CAC Daily Chart   CAC 40 Chart by TradingView   Oct 6, 2022 | DailyFX Paul Robinson, Strategist
