Recommended Posts

Keep on topic people, we're not simply talking outages and system down.  We're talking bugs too.

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

there was no specific IG system outage then but just market gaps due to excessive volatility and no liquidity as were experienced by every market participant.

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

 

There was an outage in March:

For Major outages I can find just the 24th Feb 2020 and the 5th Sept 2019, the new platform was rolled out June 2017.

Okay, not a major outage but trading was still disrupted for many clients that day, enough for IG to recognise the issues and reflect it on the service status page. The platforms were accessible but very glitchy, failing to process client orders and display charts correctly. Not being able to close a profitable trade to then see it turn deep into loss would still be considered pretty major by those affected.

    • Financial Anarchy: one of the main fallacies of Bitcoin. You are that independent holding bitcoin that anytime you want to buy it or sell it have to go through an exchange using your full identity. With all sort of passports and ids checks. Let's not forget that the main goal of many bitcoiners is to amass as much of the correlated fiat currency as possible. With the romantic topic of becoming a blade runner paying in SHA-256 hashes to other elite individuals you watch how your virtual coins grow in value, that value that is established in that so-hated fiat currency. The happiness of a bitcoiner comes with the grow in price of that coin in the exchange. The more coins of the fiat currency they get from their bitcoins the happier they are. So it is all cyberpunk literature with a bit of TAZ philosophy, but bitcoin is no more than a very volatile "financial product", unfortunately , and since I am surrounded in IT departments by bitcoiners I am so tired of listening to people excusing themselves for choosing this overhyped movement over any other FX pair or metal. I understand that people want to get rich quickly and that is why they chose bitcoin, but they want to get rich by grabbing more and more of that fiat currency that they hold in the bank accounts. So let's be honest with ourselves, let's cut the rubbish and call it like it is: Greed on a very volatile market.  
    • The Fed wants to ban it or tax it. No central government likes crypto as its a form of financial anarchy. 
    • Very good point, Casey. They see Bitcoin and want to emulate it, or in the case of the Fed try and ban it. Bitcoin and Crypto have DEMAND. A Euro backed or $ backed crypto may not have them same demand, but will also be seen as currency. Crypto's lack of provenance (political and geographic) is a major USP. The market normally wins as governments know too well.
