Recently I found I am not able to access IG.com/uk website from China which I used to be able to. Is IG blocking IP from China?

There shouldn't be any issues connecting in China. We don't block clients accounts as we know people travel for work or go on holidays. 

You may have to check the countries laws on gambling and leveraged trading sites. Some countries can block our site but I don't think China's one of them. 

All the best

I live here, IG is blocked in China, you need a VPN  and even using that its risky, connection drops frequently can't get on for days so i you have open trades you are in trouble  . It recently started, irritating to say the least! 

Pro real time and L2 dealer don't work properly either 

I mainly use a different boker now,

Every time I go to China I prepare a VPS (Virtual Private Server) in the UK. You can get one of them for about 10 £ a month or you can leave your computer listening in the UK if your ISP is giving you a static IP. The VPS will act like a physical computer in the UK so your IP will be UK-based. From China you can connect to the VPS via RDP (Remote Desktop Connection) from your laptop. 
VPS companies are normally giving you a static IP that will not need a domain name , so your RDP client will connect to a pure IP location bypassing the DNS servers within  the Chinese firewall. That way I normally forget about firewall restrictions.

I didn't complain much when I was there (2 years ago), I used it mainly from the north of China, Nanjing area. It will depend on your ISP when you get there. There are helpers to improve your connection if you find it unusable.

If you are not able to connect via RDP you can always use a VNC client. That will require installing a VNC server on the VPS. The help -desk team of the VPS will also be able to help if you ask them, I am sure they are used to clients that ask for the same service.

    • Look Ahead to 02/02/23: ECB, BoE; BT, SHEL, GOOGL, AAPL, AMZN earnings A day after the Fed, the European Central Bank and the Bank of England are expected to raise interest rates. Watch out for live coverage from IG’s Chris Beauchamp and Axel Rudolph. Plus, tech, telco and oil earnings dominate, with reports from BT (BT), Shell (SHEL), Infineon (IFXGn), Apple (AAPL), and Amazon (AMZN).            
    • Charting the Markets: 1 February FTSE 100, DAX 40 and Dow await US Fed decision. And gold jittery ahead of FOMC, as Brent crude and natural gas look at risk of further downside.             This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • As Andrew Bailey and co gear up for their next BoE decision, will it be enough to drive the pound higher against the dollar, or could recession worries return? Source: Bloomberg   Forex Pound sterling Bank GBP/USD Central bank United States dollar  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 31 January 2023  What do markets expect from the Bank of England meeting? This Thursday sees the latest Bank of England (BoE) decision. Markets expect the bank to raise UK rates by 50 basis points (bps), a similar amount to the ECB. What is the context? In an interesting reversion to early 2022, when the BoE seemed to lead the way in hawkishness, this week’s crop of central bank meetings points to a Fed rate increase of just 25bps, while Threadneedle Street pushes on with another 50bps hike, as will the European Central Bank. As with most central bank meetings these days, it is the comments around the decision and the voting pattern that will be more important. A more hawkish caucus might emerge, based on the improved (or at least, less bad) economic outlook that has appeared of late. But the outlook for the second half of the year remains gloomy, at best. Markets continue to expect at least one 25bps rate cut by the end of the year, but the bank will not want to give too much credit to this argument, since it is aware that inflation remains solidly above forecasts. GBP/USD outlook Momentum in GBP/USD has stalled at the December highs of $1.24, with little sign that the price wishes to push on ahead of the BoE meeting. Clearly a more hawkish BoE would be needed, but one that is not too hawkish that it then makes markets fret about the impact on the already-tough UK economic outlook. It will be a tough balance to strike, and if markets start to worry about a deeper UK recession, then we could see GPB/USD push back towards $1.20 and the 200-day SMA. Source: ProRealTime
