Confusing date formats


push2eject

Question

Is it possible to specify the date format used in MyIG? I have not been able to find a setting to control this.

  • Currently, if I look at MyIG > Statements, they appear to be listed in AU date format: dd/mm/yyyy
  • If I look at MyIG > Hstory > Transactions, thay are in a slightly different AU format:  d/m/yy
  • If I look at MyIG > History > Proft/Loss Breakdown, they are in a US format: m/dd/yyyy

I am in Australia, and the US format can be extremely confusing, especially when used alongside the AU format in the same platform!

I really think IG should be using the ISO8601 international date format, which is unambiguous with regard to the day and month. Or allow the user to select their preferred date format and then use this consistently across all areas of the website & trading platform.

Or have I just not found the user setting to control this yet?

Thanks,
Kevin.

No response from IG on this - have I posted in the wrong place, or is my post still pending moderator approval? It's difficult to tell.

    • The Nikkei was one of the few risers in Asia overnight, as the first day of the final quarter of the year got off to a decidedly mixed start. Chinese markets are off for Golden Week, removing these markets for the time being, and South Korea also had a national holiday today. Oil prices surged on reports that OPEC was considering a cut to output this week that might be as big as one million barrels per day, once again raising the spectre of a sustained rise in energy costs and an associated impact on inflation, just as oil had fallen to its lowest level since the beginning of the year. The pound staged an impressive rally to start the week following news that the UK government would cancel plans to scrap the 45p tax rate, a week after sterling fell to its lowest-ever level against the dollar. Futures point towards a muted start to the week, after a miserable end to Q4 for equities.
