SYSTEM CRASHING

Have you asked them to credit you ?  Ive had such issues in the past and got a refund

 

Do you have anyway to contact them, it’s clear the loss of service was solely me or related to my devices. So I am wondering do they willing accept accountability when the fault lies with them??

This is totally unacceptable. When markets are extremely volatile, IG shuts down the system so can't execute any trades. Tried to call and just get cut off.  LOST SO MUCH MONEY because of this. A

I AM CLOSING MY ACCOUNT BECAUSE THIS IS JUST HORRIBLE - cheating their customers

Yes, this has now happened 2 days running when markets have been extremely volatile. Unacceptable.

I had issues from about 15:00 for maybe 30 minutes today and the status page status.ig.com showed they were working on it for sometime.

Can't even get through either via phone or online chat. So I am giving up on IG and will leave the worst review ever. Perhaps one technical glitch, but over the last 2 days the same issue and I have the same issue before with IG when there is high volatility. But this time I got thoroughly burned. On top of that, they created a phantom trade which I never did which lost me a lot on top of not being able to close positions.

Suspect they were overloaded by people calling, the status page showed they had problems

Caseynotes you seem pro IG, not sure if you work for them or not, do you have any guidance?

not wanting to start another War with Casey, but he's always got positive to say re; IG, but doesn't actually use the Retail Platform.  He uses MT4 and 'Pops in' to the Retail Plat just to say, 'Yeah, it's working!'.

He's got me quite confused.

@Caseynotes  Have you EVER had a single problem at all with IG, Support, Technical or otherwise?

Seems the numbers have gorwn since it appeared I was the only punter with a complaint.

Ironically, I barely mention it these days as it's Futile!  Hence, probably why we don't hear about all the others that have issues.

you come out with this old story every time there's a major outage. I remember IG spending time to sort it 2 years ago and came to the conclusion that as you were having problems almost daily and no one else was the cause must be on your side, they obviously see no reason to change their original decision.

 

You CLEARLY haven't read ALL of my previous posts.

Since I sent Video Evidence of Anomalies, I've had ZERO responces from IG.

I don't even bother anymore.

Why the **** do you keep coming back with the same ****?

THERE ARE CLEARLY ISSUES!! FFS

sure, no I don't work for IG, major disruptions probably only occur on average once a year, smaller disruptions more frequently.

2 types: IG's problem with login or platform or problems outside IG's scope, exchange shutdown, stock limit up/down, unborrowable/unlongable.

2 types of complaint: I lost money on an open trade because of login or platform failure. I lost money because I couldn't place a trade that would have made me thousands.

There have been plenty of reply's on the forum over the years that IG has reimbursed losses for IG fault problems but no broker will pay out for trades that 'might have been'.

During an outage IG probably have thousands of calls waiting. Most people just email and find the situation is explained or resolved 3-4 days.

IG can usually see what you were trying to do from the data record but added screenshots might help.

Following other forums and twitter I know that there is not another broker that doesn't have occasional problems especially during times of high surge, usually it's a case of prices simply not being available to fill clients orders.

just pointing out that there are some people, like you, who turn up at every platform problem desperate to incite a 'me too' outrage, you do it every time, and each time repeating the same half truth story of how you was wronged and each time declaring you've had enough and are leaving IG for good only to resurface again the very next time, most people won't realise you've been doing it for years.

Seriously, there is something wrong with you.

Thanks Casey, my issue is not with missing a trade it was failure and/inability to execute a close order. Which then toasted me. I understand certain issue can happen, especially during high vol and slippage can happen, but not being to able to close an order when you chose to pretty much makes it impossible to trade.

email them and state your case, they can see on the data record if you have been trying to close and when, plenty of people have come back on the forum and reported that though it took a few days it was sorted amicably.

slippage is the result of prices not being available to the broker to pass on to you. there always has to be someone willing to sell at the price you are willing to buy.

Hey all, 

As mentioned in other feeds we apologise for the login issues we experienced.

If your positions were impacted please reach out to us so we can help to resolve the issues. If you believe a position should/ shouldn't have been closed out please make sure you have the correct exposure as soon as possible so we can check what happened and correct the error. 

We're working our hardest off the back of this to pick up every call and get everyone's issues resolved. 

We also have a team looking at the issues, why they're reoccurred and how to stop them going forward. 

We understand how frustrating this is and want to make sure everything is resolved so do please reach out. 

There's unprecedented demand at US market open. If you need to call to get something resolved note that it would be better to contact us earlier than 14:30. 

All the best

Totally agree, tried numerous times over the last few days via 'LIVE HELP' and no response. Eventually 'agent ended the conversation'. Platform says call and no answer. Also responded to LiveSquawk Tweet and no come back.

I don't trade options. The money in the account is mine and IG dictate when I can and buy/sell shares. Not acceptable. Have missed opportunities as a result of what's going on and lost money. Currently looking into how to move portfolio. Based on the arrogance of IG (that I have experienced repeatedly) losing retail investors will be of no consequence to them.

Be prepared for more outages today at 2.30.................

Hey, 

We're sorry we haven't been able to provide the service we wanted but are working hard to make sure it doesn't happen again and as mentioned we're more than happy to investigate anything that happened within that time frame and resolve it. 

We're aware this was our error but are doing everything we can to resolve traders issues. 

All the best

Now a message in the middle of the screen saying 'This account is not supported'. 

 

I've been having this problem for several months, but not every day.

Thanks.

That's 2 days in a row I've been unable to trade at the US open and got no help from IG.  Completely useless.  If it happens next week I'll be going elsewhere.

This is horrendous. I am an active trader with live trades on. So am I just meant to sit and wait and hope my trades don't go negative without being able to react?

3 Days in a row now right at US open and critical trading point. **** outrageous! Every account should receive a small credit at the very least as some kind of apology. I am certain people are losing significant amounts as a result of this BS.

    • Yeah i'm talking about trading.  I think what i'm trying to figure out is how i'd fair in a crash given you don't really know its happened until its happened.  I suspect i would lose money initially but then should be able to turn it around, assuming the market recovers of course.  There are also whole years where markets go into reverse trends and again i guess i could trade those but its easier to see that's what's happening once it been and gone, at the time you might always be looking for the market to turn upwards and it keeps trending downwards.
    • The answer depends a lot on your personal circumstances, time horizons, whether you're trading for fun / extra cash or to make a living etc. If you're a long-term investor and have confidence in the quality of your holdings, then a bear market (defined as a 20% drop from the highs) is usually a great opportunity to top-up (personally I would do this by drip-feeding into the market slowly as it's impossible to be sure when a bottom has been reached). If you're a trader then market crashes and the associated volatility usually throw up lots of good trading opportunities but easy to get burnt if you don't know what you're doing. I always think of crashes / bear markets in this way...as scary as they can be, they're actually (eventually!) the beginning of the next bull market, as the Covid crash of March 20 proved to be most recently - best buying opportunity in many years. As you're relatively new to trading I would highly recommend reading 'The Disciplined Trader' by Mark Douglas. Expensive to buy usually, but well worth every penny. Hope this is all of some help to you.
    • Hi all, do you have any advice about what to do when a market crashes? I would assume a major crash was like what we saw last year when coronavirus broke. I only started looking into trading just after that happened so have not experienced one yet. Although was involved in the recovery which was a baptism of fire..I guess the question is, do you know when you're in a crash scenario? Of course the news might give clues but you don't know how far the market will fall so are you inevitably going to lose money at least in the short term? This especially if you're a long trader. I assume you don't just carry on trading as you normally would. Thanks for the advice.
