GBPUSD Who got fills (buys or sells) below 1.1800 today?


Recommended Posts

I would love to hear form anyone who traded the GBPUSD today at prices below 1.18.


Early Australian time I took a screenshot where activity showed 4 separate 1 minute bars traded well below 1.1800, down to around 1.12.  When I now look at the same chart, magically there are now lows below 1.18 showing. 


So basically we have a situation here where IG have doctored their data.  Why?


Even worse, on tradingview.com, FXCM doctored their data from a low of 1.19030 (Basis IQ Feed data) to 1.2273  

Almost 4 big figures. They shouldn't even be allowed  to have a license in the US, verifying the low view so many have of the firm.  


But back to IG.  Please, if you have traded below 1.18 today on the GBPUSD, drop a message here.


Did IG cancel your trades?  

How quickly did they inform you of this?  

What if you had already made an exit trade?  

What if you were short into the crash, took your profit below 1.18 and walked away?  Are you actually still short if they cancelled your trade?

I have a short position on GBP/JPY and want to take profit at the close of the 5 mins plunging bearish candle. However, I was not allowed to trade online and when I tried to call on phone, the line is engaged. By the time IG allowed me to trade online (btw, the line is still engaged after 30 mins), my profit of 800 pips become just less than 200 pips. 


This is daylight robbery!

I rang the melborne office last night and they where really helpful, i think they have a lot less staff on at night in the London office, they have relevant contact numbers which you can find on the homepage. 

Ig has some of these safety switches due to a similar event that happened with the swiss frank a while back in order to protect their clients.

    • Brent crude oil, gold and natural gas prices drop post hawkish Fed pause Outlook on Brent crude oil, gold and natural following Fed’s hawkish pause. Source: Bloomberg  Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Thursday 21 September 2023 11:27 Brent crude oil comes off its ten-month high The price of Brent crude oil continues to come off Tuesday’s ten-month high at $94.97 while the US dollar once more appreciates, exerting a slight downward pressure on the oil price, and as the Fed delivered a hawkish pause. Support can be spotted around the $90.97 early September high ahead of the psychological $90.00 mark. Resistance lurks around Tuesday’s $93.32 low. Further up lies this week’s ten-month high at $94.97 and the mid-September 2022 high at $95.19. Source: ProRealTime Gold comes off yesterday’s $1,947 high Gold rallied back towards its $1,953 per troy ounce early September high but only managed to reach $1,947 before it came off again as the greenback continued to appreciate following hawkish comments at the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC). The 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at $1,925 is currently being probed as support, below which the 6 September low at $1,915 may also act as minor support. Minor resistance above the 55-day simple moving average (SMA) at $1,932 sits at Tuesday’s $1,937 high. Source: ProRealTime Natural gas comes off this week’s six-week high Natural gas prices recently shot back up to the $3.000 mark on weather and production concerns but are currently slipping back from this week’s high at $3.021. A slip through Wednesday’s $2.857 low would put Monday’s low and the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at $2.800 to $2.791 on the map. Immediate resistance is seen at the early September high at $2.904 ahead of last and this week’s highs at $2.973 to $3.021. Slightly further up sits the August peak at $3.050. Source: ProRealTime
