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.

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.

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

Nah, quite a few more than that lol

    • and so suddenly, within the last few days; - Vit D finally gets govt recommended. - Invermectin finally gets approval. - HCQ now suggested as a treatment instead of being banned. - WHO finally revises PCR test to reduce huge ratio of false positives.   With all these much cheaper treatments now available it's lucky for big Pharma then that all their vaccines have already been bought up for the next few years. 🙄   .  
    • Interesting snip from Parliament TV.  NHS staff are now full on the Lateral Flow Test twice a week but still waiting for public LFT mass testing roll out. Asymptomatics testing -ve on LFT will not need a PCR and therefore an end to the PCR false positive pandemic. Govt claim to have several hundred million LFT kits, not sure why the holdup. First 15 min discusses LFT efficacy. https://parliamentlive.tv/event/index/c435f728-b042-4293-a877-42812aa90dee
    • Thanks for the post.  I would be interested in understand the costs associated with the relevant ETF. Do they carry the same sort of fees as one would expect from investing in the fund directly (management, performance, early exit etc.) or are they limited to the usual dealing costs - commission, SDRT? Also, for my clarity, we are talking about fund which may be issued by large investment managers (e.g. Blackrock - iShares, Baillie Gifford, PIMCO etc.) which are traded on the LSE
