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

    • Bitcoin: Anticipated target lies within the 58-60 range before an impending correction. The upward trajectory is displaying signs of softening, prompting short-term traders to elevate their stop-loss levels. Bond Yields: The 10-year yields are poised to conclude wave v) of C of (B). This development is pivotal as it will uphold the strength of the Dollar DXY. Consequently, positions in gold or silver should be refrained from until yields and the Dollar reach their peaks. China's Influence: An intriguing facet of the market landscape revolves around China. I've been meticulously observing a substantial Elliott Wave Triangle pattern dating back to 2008, which now seems to have reached its culmination. This event is forecasted to bolster base metal prices, particularly once the Dollar and yields reach their zeniths. Crude Oil: Progressing steadily on its upward trajectory, crude oil is set for further ascension. Natural Gas: The recent uptick in natural gas prices is construed as a corrective rally, indicative of an impending shorting opportunity in the near future.

    • The emergence of ICO and NFTs ushered in tokens as speculative assets. These were really attached with no use-cases beyond defi and collectibles. The next wave of tokenization seeks to bring forth experiences and token applications. These are set to be programmable and filled with user centric integration points. Smart tokens are set to usher in digital transformation, by bringing a paradigm shift from websites, to apps and to tokens. Tokenized services are set to transform user experience by rendering services where and when a consumer needs them. The core intent of the smart layer network is to bring real life use-cases to Web3, the project’s team firmly believes that, by infusing useable features into Web3 it will undoubtedly usher it mainstream. Critically looking at Smart Layer would expose that, after carefully and critically analyzing the existence of different token models, it is found that, there is truly no worthwhile use-case, thus the project seeks to curb the conundrum. In a bid to get a grasp of what smart tokens are, view it through the lens of how websites firstly started rendering digital services, then slowly evolving to apps. With Smart Layer, the focus is to empower tokens to do what websites and apps had hitherto done. The erstwhile services offered are set to be tokenized thus allowing them to be delivered when and where the consumer needs them and without requiring direct integrations. The Smart Layer Network native token $SLN is slated to be listed on bitget upon the satisfaction of certain criterion and prerequisite, deposit is however is currently opened. By depositing it on the CEX, the listing will be enabled and the token cast into further spotlight.
