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.

    • Sorry, I didn't get it... What's Dual investment? 
    • The crypto market appears to be showing signs of recovery, with significant improvements in the Sharpe Ratios of Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum, according to an article published on Friday.  The Sharpe Ratio, a measure used to understand the return of an investment compared to its risk, has seen a notable increase for both cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's Sharpe Ratio has risen from -2.4 to 0.68, while Ethereum and BGB have also experienced a similar uptrend. This change signifies higher returns at lower risk, which is expected to attract more investors to the crypto market. In addition to the improved Sharpe Ratios, increased network activity and trading volume as shown on CEXs like Bitget, Binance, and a few DEXs are suggesting a healthier market state. The current trading prices of Bitcoin, reflect this overall positive market sentiment. As of Friday, Bitcoin was trading at $27,069.73, BGB at $0.454 and Ethereum at $1,677.89. These developments are significant as they indicate reduced risk in the crypto market. The increase in the Sharpe Ratios for Bitcoin, BGB, and Ethereum suggests that these cryptocurrencies are becoming less risky investments, which could potentially lead to an influx of new investors into the market.  Could this rise in Sharpe Ratios coupled with increased network activity and trading volume point towards a recovering and less risky crypto market?
