System Errors, No support, what is going on?


Recommended Posts

HI Everyone,

 

Ive noted some system errors, re the ability to login when site admin/maintenance is done (very communication about it), un-contactable phone support (been on wait to speak to someone today 3 times for 40 mins and no one answers, and now i have an order that will not clear when i try to delete it.

Is this platform going all downhill? Should we all run for the hills,, or is IG going to give us some customer support?

I've had issues fora few months now where i can't amend my Stop or Close a Trade.  I too can't get thru on the phone and have no replies to my emails.

I thought you got that sorted over a year ago when IG said your combination of intermittent malfunctions was unique and could not do anything as the problem was likely at your end. I remember JamesIG organising customer services to call to reiterate but you hadn't updated a change in contact details so they couldn't get through and gave up.

This is not sorted and happening on my account now.. PLUS ZERO SUPPORT FROM IG - ZERO ANSWERING PHONES - THAT IS THE MAJOR CONCERN - THAT THEY DONT MONITOR THE COMMUNITY OR SUPPORT FAULTS IN THEIR SYSTEM PREVENTING US FROM TRADING EFFICIENTLY.

yes the phone issue has been a problem since the start of lockdown but IG never meant the forum to be a customer services portal but rather a discussion site for clients.

You will notice that I was relying to the second poster who's problems were not the same as yours and who was just hijacking your thread.

My problems ARE the same!  Technical/Customer Support/Phone/e-mail.

I've never had it sorted.  Since then I've changed my hard drive, my operating system, and my Internet.

Maybe my problems are more often as I'm literally on the platform every single day.  (more fool me)

Even now I've had to open a new window as IG won't refresh.   Volume data, candles missing depending on Timeframe.  I've always said it's possible somewhere the problem is mine, but I've sent emails and never had replies.  I've been in chat and never had Tech reply as promised by email.  

As for hijacking the thread?  What do you think you're doing now?  I turn up to add to another persons post that I too, (as with many many other) continue to have problems with the retail platform or customer support, and you feel the need once more to attach yourself to me.

I appreciate your concern however, and your point that this is NOT specifically a Tech Forum.  This is now very clear.

So, back to the OP.  Can't get thru on phones still, several months later.  Can't get e-mail support.  @CharlotteIG seems to be doing her very best to attend to as much as she can, but she is not IG.    IG as a company is under scrutiny, not the people who work for them.

yes but a major outage has only happened 2 or 3 times in the last 4 or 5 years and never coincides with your particular complaints.

We're not just talking about Major Outages Casey.  The platform is Buggy at Best.  Whether 1 person point it out of 1000.  Whether no-one else has them, or 1 does.

This thread belong to the OP.  I'm certainly not here to hijack it like you suggest.


Official message on my phone.

Service Connection Failure.

We are sorry, but this platform is currently unavailable.

Phone and PC.

Same login issues here - the site seems to be down.
Unable to get into my account to trade, happened about 30mins after the US market opened.

'Service Connection Failure'
 

When I did get in indicator data such as Volume missing.

Can't get back in at the moment on any device - no access at all.

I'm trying to offload a position and the service in comparison to the amount of money I have on board is not reflective- I'm down about 2.5% from where I was when I first tried to sell and I'm not a happy bunny! I've been on hold for 30 mins with no sign of an answer. This is not a difficult type of platform to run - as you can probably tell, I'm not impressed

Literally pointed this issue out myself a few months back and it's happened several times since, including yesterday.

You can use TradingView with an Oanda account, might be time to switch broker.

Creatures of habit and torture though.  I find it is actually a better platform than others I've tried, however, the functionality is suspect.  Either way, I'm a bit tired of the rhetoric in here and need a new story maybe. :D

Yep IG need some media coverage, this is f*king ridiculous.  I am tempted to write to the FCA.  If this was a bank they'd be crucified for having multiple major outages a year.

Is there a page anywhere that displays the system status, like you get with a telephone or broadband service? Or a planned maintenance page?

How come they've not learnt from the last time it happened to prevent it from happening so soon after? Platform stability is now an ongoing issue when it didn't used to be. At least the forum never goes down, eh. 

Thank you for your posts and apologies for the platform issues. 

You can check the progress here: https://status.ig.com/

If you could not get into the platform and have trades that were impacted please let us know via email so we can look into this for you. 

Please only call us if you need to close a positions. 

Apologies again from IG.

Thank you Charlotte.  I know you have tried to help me recently, but it's fell on deaf ears, but this time however, I didn't follow thru because of doubt more than anything else that it would be resolved even if I did.  It's bad enough losing thru bad trading, but platform issues as well?.   I can't take anymore.  As I don't always record my screen (the sheer amount of times I would need to do this is counter productive to me) then it's hard for me to prove anything is wrong.  Suffice it to say I have estimated losses of around £400 over 12 months.    These losses are either directly related to a lack of info on the chart, inability to close, or inability to amend, or premature Limits in place where there had been none.

However, we can't call to close.......we can't get thru!.  by then it's too late.  Some of us trade in minutes.  I need to be in and out in seconds.


Thanks again.

The last major outage was at the beginning of September last year and I can't remember any before that at all but presume there must have been but not for years.

You already forgot the outage when the markets tanked in March?

I'd be interested to know if it affects professional clients.

It's all about money.  The web platform is clearly flaky AF, it's a sunk cost but they can't ditch it, so they put plasters on it whenever it flares up, but won't spend money on fixing it, which would probably require a new system.  Typical IT project in the financial services industry.

There was a major outage on February 24th, not sure about March although I do remember there being at least two fairly close together.

My memory fails me, I should really write these things down when they happen.

Now red wave 2 of 3 is in play. Wave Cancel invalid level: 16044.39   The Elliott Wave analysis for the Hang Seng Index on the daily chart provides a comprehensive view of its current trend movements. The analysis characterizes the overall function as a trend, indicating that the Hang Seng Index is following a recognizable and sustained directional movement.   The mode of this trend is described as corrective, which typically involves a temporary counter-move against the prevailing trend. Within this corrective mode, the primary structure identified is red wave 2, suggesting that the index is currently in the second wave of a corrective phase.   At present, the position within this structure is blue wave 3, indicating that the market is part of a larger corrective sequence moving through the red wave 2 phase. This positioning is crucial as it determines the immediate market behavior and potential future movements.   The direction for the next higher degrees is projected to be red wave 3, implying that after the completion of the current corrective phase (red wave 2), the market is expected to enter a more significant upward trend in red wave 3. This transition from corrective to impulsive phases often marks a pivotal shift in market sentiment.   Key details highlighted include the completion of red wave 1 at a specific level, indicating that the initial corrective move has concluded. Currently, red wave 2 of 3 is in play, marking the ongoing corrective phase before the anticipated transition to red wave 3. This phase is critical as it sets the stage for the next major market movement.   An important aspect of this analysis is the wave cancel invalid level, set at 16044.39. If the market price moves beyond this level, it would invalidate the current wave count and necessitate a re-evaluation of the wave structure. This level serves as a crucial checkpoint for confirming the accuracy of the Elliott Wave pattern and the expected market behavior.   In summary, the Hang Seng Index is currently in a corrective trend within red wave 2 of blue wave 3. The completion of red wave 1 sets the stage for the ongoing red wave 2, with the market expected to transition into red wave 3. Monitoring the invalidation level is essential to validate the current wave count and anticipated market movements.     Hang Seng Index Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Weekly Chart,       Hang Seng Index Elliott Wave Technical Analysis           FUNCTION: Trend MODE: impulsive STRUCTURE:blue wave 3 POSITION: black wave  DIRECTION NEXT LOWER  DEGREES: blue wave 4 DETAILS:blue wave 2 looking completed at 16044.39. Now blue wave 3 is in play. Wave Cancel invalid level: 14780.30       The Elliott Wave analysis for the Hang Seng Index on the weekly chart provides insights into its current trend dynamics. The analysis identifies the overall function as a trend, suggesting that the index is in a sustained directional movement.     The mode of this trend is characterized as impulsive, indicating strong, decisive movements that are in the direction of the larger trend. Within this impulsive mode, the primary structure identified is blue wave 3. This suggests that the index is currently in the third wave of an impulsive sequence, which typically involves the most significant and powerful movements within an Elliott Wave cycle.   The current position within this structure is black wave 1, indicating that the market is in the initial phase of the blue wave 3 sequence. This phase is critical as it sets the foundation for subsequent waves and often involves substantial price movements.   The direction for the next lower degrees is projected to be blue wave 4, implying that after the completion of the current blue wave 3, the market is expected to enter a corrective phase in blue wave 4. This transition is significant as it often involves a retracement of the prior impulsive move before resuming the trend.   Key details in the analysis highlight the completion of blue wave 2 at a specific level, indicating that the corrective phase preceding the current impulsive move has concluded. Now, blue wave 3 is in play, marking the ongoing impulsive phase that follows blue wave 2. This phase is crucial as it often represents the strongest part of the Elliott Wave cycle.   An important aspect of the analysis is the wave cancel invalid level, set at 14780.30. If the market price moves beyond this level, it would invalidate the current wave count and necessitate a re-evaluation of the wave structure. This level serves as a critical checkpoint for confirming the accuracy of the Elliott Wave pattern and the expected market behavior.   In summary, the Hang Seng Index is currently in an impulsive trend within blue wave 3 of black wave 1. The completion of blue wave 2 sets the stage for the ongoing blue wave 3, with the market expected to transition into blue wave 4 next. Monitoring the invalidation level is essential to validate the current wave count and anticipated market movements.   Technical Analyst : Malik Awais Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!  
    • GBPAUD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart,       British Pound/ Australian Dollar (GBPAUD) Day Chart GBPAUD Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: impulsive      STRUCTURE: Blue wave C POSITION: black wave 2 DIRECTION NEXT LOWER  DEGREES: black wave 3 DETAILS: blue wave B of 2 looking completed , now blue wave C of 2 is in play. Wave Cancel invalid level: 1.99747   The Elliott Wave analysis for the British Pound/Australian Dollar (GBPAUD) on the daily chart provides insights into the current counter trend movements. The analysis identifies the mode as impulsive within the blue wave C structure, indicating a strong and definitive directional move that is typically seen in corrective phases.   The primary structure under scrutiny is blue wave C, with the current position marked within black wave 2. This positioning signifies that the currency pair is in the second wave of a corrective phase, progressing through the blue wave C sequence. This phase often entails a significant push in the market as part of a larger corrective pattern.   The analysis also highlights the next lower degree direction, which is black wave 3. This suggests that after the completion of the current wave, the market is expected to enter black wave 3, marking another impulsive move following the corrective phase.   Key details include the completion of blue wave B of 2, indicating that this corrective wave segment has concluded, and the market is now advancing into blue wave C of 2. This transition is crucial as it marks the onset of the next impulsive move within the corrective pattern, characterized by strong price action.   A critical aspect of this analysis is the wave cancel invalid level, set just below a specific threshold. If the market moves beyond this level, it would invalidate the current wave count and necessitate a reassessment of the wave structure, potentially indicating a shift in the market’s direction.   In summary, the Elliott Wave analysis for GBPAUD on the daily chart indicates a counter trend impulsive movement within blue wave C of black wave 2. With the completion of blue wave B, the market is now progressing into blue wave C. Monitoring the invalidation level is essential to track possible changes in market behavior and ensure the accuracy of the Elliott Wave pattern.     GBPAUD Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4 Hour Chart,       British Pound/ Australian Dollar (GBPAUD) 4 Hour Chart     GBPAUD Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: impulsive as C STRUCTURE: red wave 3 POSITION:blue wave C DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES:red wave 4                                       DETAILS: red wave 2 of C looking completed at 1.89076 , now red wave 3 is in play . Wave Cancel invalid level: 1.89012                                   The Elliott Wave analysis for the British Pound/Australian Dollar (GBPAUD) on the 4-hour chart highlights the current market dynamics from a counter trend perspective. The analysis identifies the mode as impulsive within the context of wave C, suggesting a strong directional movement typically observed in corrective phases that follow an ABC pattern.   The primary wave structure in focus is red wave three, indicating that the currency pair is in the midst of a significant impulsive wave. The current position is identified within blue wave C, which is part of the larger red wave three sequence. This suggests that the market is experiencing a powerful move within the broader corrective wave pattern.   The direction for the next lower degrees is red wave four, indicating that following the completion of the current impulsive wave, a corrective phase (red wave four) is expected. This phase typically involves a retracement before the market continues in its overall trend direction.   Key details from the analysis include the completion of red wave two of C at a specific level. With this wave now completed, the market is advancing into red wave three. This transition marks the beginning of the next impulsive sequence, characterized by strong and directional price movements.   A critical aspect of this analysis is the wave cancel invalid level, set just below the completion level of red wave two. This level serves as a crucial threshold; if the market moves beyond this point, it would invalidate the current wave count. This would necessitate a reassessment of the wave structure and could indicate a potential shift in the market direction.   In summary, the Elliott Wave analysis for GBPAUD on the 4-hour chart indicates an ongoing counter trend impulsive movement within red wave three of blue wave C. With the completion of red wave two, the market is now progressing into red wave three. Monitoring the invalidation level is essential for tracking possible changes in the market’s behavior and ensuring the accuracy of the Elliott Wave pattern.   Technical Analyst : Malik Awais Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
