So I phoned 2 days ago to ask about a stock that was (All Sessions) because the hours shown by clicking the information button said it was just UK trading time of 14:30 to 21:00 and I didn't want to lose my position, but was told it was fine to ignore the hours mentioned as 'All Sessions' meant it included the USA Pre-market and After Hours trading hours and so was ALL SESSIONS.


Tonight (Friday) my market closed at 1000hrs UK time with my spread bet open now holding over weekend on a volatile stock. I looked the trading hours up on the IG website to only find that on Fridays IG stop trading at 10pm which is NOT ALL SESSIONS!

I phoned but no phone support.

I went to live chat which says 24/7 but not available


As the live chat option is greyed out.

Before anyone says well the website does say it stops at 10 on a Friday, well then 1. that is not ALL SESSIONS and 2. The website says Forex is 24/7 when actually it is not as closes at 10 on a Friday and doesnt start again until 8 on Saturday. Also, with this in mind, about 2 weeks ago I phoned to complain about that and that even after 8 my weekend trading was blacked out, and the support asked me to send a screenshot and that was it, never heard anything back.

ANNOYED - I better not lose any money on my spread as it continues to trade for the next 3 hours in the US during ALL SESSIONS which is apparently a different meaning to IG.

    • Hi @greenscorpio1000 Unfortunately we do not have this feature on the mobile app. You can only access the Swap rates on the web platform. The screenshot attached is an indication of todays rate (now at -2.67) which will be a charge on the account. Please note that open positions held through 10pm (UK time) on Fridays will be adjusted for three days’ worth of funding to cover the weekend. All the best, O.D
