It doesn't look like much has changed since September. Support is glacial at the moment. The IG system deactivated my demo system (but kept my live system up) at the weekend so i emailed support as no one was picking up the phone and I gave up after 30 minutes.

3 days later I called support again and gave up after another 30 minutes of no one picking up the phone. I tried the live chat but it took another 34 minutes to get someone to respond to that. The support person could not see the original problem/question I had typed in so I had to type it again and finally another 39 minutes later my problem was resolved. Yay!

Thank goodness it was just a technical problem. For the hell of it I called the trading desk to see if the response time was any better there.15 minutes later I gave up waiting. What if I had a problem with a trade and wanted the trade desk to close that trade....good luck with that!

OK IG, can you please hire some more staff?

43 minutes and still waiting for someone to answer the phone.. Time to move somewhere else.

no it's been poor since the start of the covid crisis, some reports other brokers are affected the same, certainly my bank is. Any email queries I've made to IG have been replied to in 3-4 days.

You'd think that remote working wouldn't change much. I work in IT and we simply redirected everything to our mobiles, business as usual. :)

don't know how it works but might be down to a need to be able to access client accounts and not sure if could/should be able to do that from home. Be interesting to find out.

    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........  
    • Yeah........ so that happened ...
