£0,000's... vanished within my P&L Account Value - Where is it?


DougW

Question

Last night on 20/11/2020 at the close of trading, at 21:02 I looked at my screen to see I was making a healthy profit. Astonishingly within hours, "long after markets had closed" I looked at my IG account again before closing down and was horrified to see many, many thousands of pounds had vanished and/or been wiped from my trading P&L figures.

This is far from the first time this has occurred. Yet when it's reported and, in this  particular case via email, simply because no other channels were open or available when attempting to contact IG support. It's now over 18+ hours since I initially registered the problem yet nobody from IG has bothered to make contact. This raises bigger concerns as to why not? Has, or is, any other readers experiencing these type of problems?  Fortunately I took and sent screen shots of my glaring loss and miscalculations yet still heard nothing!!

Further is anyone else frustrated with the lack of IG support and contact over these past months? No doubt IG will use some form of strap line "Due to Covid19" but this frankly does no wash with this type of business. Whether working from home, within a UK office or any other location worldwide, IT systems are readily to hand, as too are telephones so why do we have to wait as long as we do?

Regards Doug W.

One possible  explanation   could  be that  you were  in a company  which  continues  trading  after  markets  are  closed...ALL SESSIONS....still in  order  to  fully  understand  the possible  reasons   more  details  might  be required

Hi Doug

Have the values come back now?  I find every Friday evening all values become zero and all positions have a red X next to them during part of the weekend.  I think it's possibly during server downtime/maintenance etc.  But I find everything is back before Sunday evening well before trading commences.

Hopefully this is the same.

Regards. Joe.

    • Crypto trading is a bit complicated when it comes to understanding the dynamics in profit making. Some people are more inclined to technical analysis which of course has been the widely used trading tool but some are more inclined to fundamentals but sticking to fundamentals alone could be highly risky in my own opinion even though crypto is also financial instrument that often respond to news updates.  A blend of the two could provide a safety net for traders in minimizing losses compared to potential profit. The above case scenario is largely attributed to perp futures trading and other derivatives. TA and FA could also be very useful for spot trading but I feel timely listing of projects could largely determine one's profit from investing in a project. These may not be for all projects cos some are **** coins. This could be a personal perspective but I have noticed listing speed is also another important factor to consider along with project fundamentals when trading and if we are to include listing speed as a factor for choosing trade then it will affect our choice of trading platform cos some are more inclined to top cap projects while others are more inclined low cap gems.   My experience with ORDI has proven this trading skill rewarding. ORDI was first listed on Bitget before other exchange joined the listing party after it saw rapid adoption reflecting in it significant MCap growth. This chart should give us a glimpse of my experience with this strategy.
    • In a stunning display of market momentum, the PANDORA token, the first of its kind, has skyrocketed an astonishing 4872% from its introduction on February 2nd to February 7th. This remarkable performance has not only caught the attention of cryptocurrency enthusiasts but has also solidified PANDORA’s position as a groundbreaking asset in the digital currency landscape. Pandora's ERC-404 protocol revolutionizes the token landscape by seamlessly blending the qualities of ERC20 and ERC721 standards. This experimental mixed implementation enables persistent liquidity and non-fungibility for NFTs, unlocking a realm of possibilities previously unexplored. Adding to the excitement, Bitget Wallet is gearing up to introduce a specialized section dedicated to ERC-404 token market listings. This feature creates a hub for tokens that blend the best of both worlds—the liquidity of ERC-20s and the uniqueness of ERC-721 NFTs. I have come to believe that, the electrifying surge of PANDORA token and the innovative ERC-404 standard is not just a fleeting trend but a window into the future of cryptocurrency.
