SYSTEM CRASHING


Recommended Posts

I am a Day Trader/Swing Trader.  I rely on Market Open and Volatility.

I've placed over 200 trades in the last month, but now I don't know if I'm up or down.

I literally need the ability to Open and Close in Quick Succession or Dump if necessary.

I can see my trades and watchlist going nuts and when I click to trade I get a message that there is a service connection failure. Don't know how the service can magically work on one tab and then disappear on the tab. Hmmm

Yesterday when the system stopped working, I had a short on Tesla which was up a lot. Then the system wiped  out ALL the gain only to then gradually revert back to original level. But if I had had a stop, it would have wiped out the trade.

This is either faulty software or something more worrying ....

This really is an unfortunate situation. It may well be just a capacity problem or other technical glitch, but the fact that I cannot find a message from IG to explain the situation is really galling and upsetting. I don't trade big and I rarely make money, but its my fun lockdown hobby and I would prefer to do that on a stable, reliable platform with clear customer service messaging when things go wrong. AM currently opening demo accounts with other regulated providers.

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.


 

I CAN'T EVEN GET THROUGH TO IG SUPPORT !!!

SO YOUR EXCUSE IS JUST NULL AND VOID !!!

STOP TRYING TO DEFEND THE INDEFENSIBLE!!!

I do have had the same issues. Really frustrating. Seem to happen just after U.S markets open and when volatility is high. Annoying. !!!

 

Funnily enough I get a 'service connection failure' pop up message which magically appears when I try to use the trade tab. I can see everything else just fine. I reckon ASIC will be getting a few calls on Monday folks.

The amount you trade is not what is important here. Everything is relative.

Yesterday, all my profits plus more was wiped out during the trading block. To me it is a lot. To others not wo much. But the point is that the SYSTEM FAILURE SHOULD NOT HAPPEN ... especially THREE DAYS IN A ROW !!!

IG right now SUCKS BIG TIME !!!

NO SUPPORT - NO TRADES POSSIBLE DURING HIGH VOLATILITY - NO EXPLANATION OR WARNING

    • If we could get some news about negotations and a possible ceasefire in Ukraine then i would say this is the bottom https://edition.cnn.com/markets/fear-and-greed "That indicator previously fell to 0 in August 2002, July 2008, September 2011, September 2015, January 2016 and March 2020, observed Hartnett. When it has previously zeroed out, except in the case of a double-dip recession such as 2002 or in the event of systemic events, as in 2008 and 2011, three-month returns have been strong, as the table below shows." https://www.marketwatch.com/story/based-on-history-the-next-bull-market-is-just-months-away-and-could-take-the-s-p-500-to-6000-says-bofa-11655475414
    • The CME Bitcoin futures BTC main contract was at $19,370 late Friday (Chinese time) in New York, up 3.25% from Thursday's New York session, and trading in the $18,630-20,790 range during the session, down 8.87% for the week. the CME Ethereum futures DCR main contract was at $1065.50, up 5.08% from Thursday, and trading in the 1009.50-$1118.00 range, down 13.02% for the week.Maybe there is still a possibility of decline.
