I’m having problem with login!


Recommended Posts

Yes I am also having this trouble. I've changed my password successfully and managed to log in to this forum, but I keep getting an 'unexpected error' message when trying to login. The two numbers it suggests calling just cut me off straight away.

This is only my second day with IG and I need to make some trades within the next hour or so. I hope this isn't a common theme with IG? Don't rate the support at the moment, hopefully this is just a one off.

I assume its down for everyone.  30 mins now.

I wrote to them th elast time they had a big blow up, and asked why they dind't have a secondary server that uaotmatically kicks in.  They avoided answering me.  Clearly they completely ignored professional advice and stil have no backup service. It's disgraceful, unprofessional, and simply stupid.  It only goes down when things are going crazy, which is precisely the time the backup server is required.   I've always been a big supporter of IG, but their lack of action when given WISE advice, shows they have a serious management issue.

I don’t believe is the saver!

I have got this one from MarketWatch:


Disruptions reported at multiple brokerages as GameStop, AMC surge
Disruptions were reported at several major retail brokerages Wednesday morning, following the speculative surge of interest in companies including GameStop  and AMC Entertainment , as well as a big drop in the major stock-market indexes including the S&P 500 . The website Downdetector reported disruptions to TD Ameritrade, Robinhood, E-trade, Charles Schwab, Fidelity Investments, Interactive Brokers and Vanguard, as well as the Reddit message board that has triggered much of the activity

Sadly doesn't help us.

The action of a few stocks, no matter how crazy or extreme in movement and volume should absolutely NOT bring dow the whole platform. Sorry, but this is like saying we are still using Windows 95.  Windows 10 allows an app to crash and keep it contained and not cause a BSOD any more.  And this is PRECISELY how trading platforms should be designed these days.  Clearly they are not.

I realize that there's probably a mountain of small print protecting IG from any claim for losses here BUT I do believe the very least they could do is reimburse people for the costs of their guaranteed stop loss premium because I make a POINT of personally physically exiting my trades to avoid that premium and now their platform failure is entirely responsible for that loss specifically?? Do they or have they ever done such??

If the issue occurred across multiple platforms and brokers, then that is really odd.  DOW down 400 is nothing.  No idea what would cause multiple platforms/firms to crash, but implies a broad internet issue, or perhaps even some kind of co-ordinated world wide attack on all the servers???  Beyond my expertise.  

BUT...if it were just IG....and they have previously refused to have a seconardy server in place to kick in immediately when the main platform goes down, then absolutely they are open to a class action lawsuit, in theory.  And frankly, they wouldn't stand a chance.  

But I would rather try to work WITH THEM than agaisnt them.

its up on my end again. I need to give IG credits of being relatively stable and getting it back up again.
Interactive Brokers is up but had order transmission problems, DeGiro ist notoriously offline and others I don't and would never use exactly because of operational issues

Time to switch. IG platforms are rigged! This is a systemic issue and will keep on recurring

Its part of their game. They dont care. Watch. They wont give a decent explanation or plan of action or commitment to prevent this happening again

CityIndex was trading just fine and they're meant to be a small outfit

List of reliable brokers please that werent affected today would be most welcome

SHAME ON YOU IG!!

    • The epidemic in recent years has produced profound changes in people's lifestyles, and many of their activities have started to be developed in the virtual world, which plays an important role in promoting the development of the universe of meta. Games, as an important part of the universe of meta, will be the first industry to gain the benefits , but the following conditions are still indispensable for blockchain games to achieve better development.   - Wallets and Exchanges. Through the use of wallets, game users can truly take control of the assets in the game, and exchanges provide a trading platform and liquidity for these game assets NFT, helping users trade and revitalize their game assets. Wallets are a key application for depositing blockchain assets. Currently, wallets such as Metamask are not enough to support the extensive adoption of block games, and wallets will further advance community drive the popularity of blockchain games.  - Game playability. The biggest difference between blockchain games and traditional games is that gamers are also investors. Many blockchain games have gone out of course, treating all users as investors only and forgetting that the essence of making games is to develop high-quality games that users are interested in paying for. If most people play a game just to make money, and no one is ready to pay for it, it becomes a side-scam. The revenue of the participants of the side scam comes from the money of the people who come later, and if there are not enough people who come later, they will not be able to cash in the revenue, leading to the breakdown.  - Speed and performance. A high level of concurrency is the characteristic of game applications, so Wax, Coinan Chain and Polygon, which are public chains with a high level of concurrency and low fees, have attracted a large number of game developers. In the future, with the maturity of technologies such as Ethernet Layer 2 and slice scaling, as well as the maturity of other gaming public chain technologies compatible with EVM, blockchain games will have a better development and operation environment.  - Cross-chain and interaction. Cross-chain and interaction of game assets will be a direction of future development of metaverse games, and blockchain should be connected and accessible like the Internet. The maturity of cross-chain technology in the future will promote the cross-chain transfer of game assets and NFT, and improve the interaction experience of the system                                                                                     The game should maintain the operation of the project by relying on the payment of some users or selling profitable products, just like the new blockchain game Fairy Cat in 2023, which developed diverse gameplay for players and increased the playability of the game, thus got the recognition of many players. Blockchain games need to work hard on game experience and playability. Token economics is essentially just a kind of interest structure , and even good token economics cannot replace the development, operation and profitability of the project itself. It is believed that with the maturity of the above conditions, more and more game developers and investors will enter this industry and together promote the production of some blockchain games with beautiful graphics, first-class experience and high playability.
    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
