Platform freezing on me and then unable to log back in

Question

Hi there, Can someone explain why when I was in the middle of the trade on the Spread betting platform that it froze on me and then logged me out I was unable to log back in until my positions had closed. If I hadn't  moved my stops up I would have lost all my profits strange how this only happens when I'm on the winning side of the trade and never when I'm on the losing side ?

As it is a web application sometimes you can't tell if the problem is coming from the server of you have a local problem yourself with your browser. One way to get rid any local problem is by forcing the browser to refresh the application. You can do that in Google Chrome or Opera by opening the Developer Tools window. Within the window there is an option to disable the cache under the Network tab. Once it is disabled leave that Developer Tools window and refresh the page, it will try to download all components again from the server. You will see a detailed list of all components that is trying to download and if there is one that has any problem and it is preventing to load the window it will show in red within the list. The picture below shows my attempt to refresh the page:

Once everything is working fine enable the cache and close the Developer Tools window, the browser will get the latest working version.

I would love to know if PRT or IG's other supported platforms had the same problem that web platform did yesterday at the U.S. open.

Not MT4, nor when there were the other couple of major outages.

this happened on both my android devices so its not web browser related as the app has the same issue also yesterday.. so looks like all platforms & apps were effected.
