Thanks for your post. 

Sometimes if you put in 3 incorrect passwords your account will lock. If you haven't got to 3 please change your password yourself on the website. 

If you've exceeded 3 you have to ring/ email us to get it sorted as we have to unlock it before you attempt to login again. 

All the best

My account is locked for no reason, I did not enter wrong details and neither resetting it, nor trying to contact you has changed anything. All my emails were completely ignored. I was planning to shift my funds to this company after testing with the demo account but the lack of real customer support has now put me in doubt. I shouldn't have to come here in order to get support for my account which you have locked.

Hi, 

My account says its locked and asks me to provide email to unlock account. I have gone through this process multiple times and reset the password but when I try to login using the new password, I still get the account locked error. 

Can you please tell me what is going on and how can I log into my account? 

Thanks

Hey, 

If you've attempted to reset your password and it's still not working please email/ call or live chat us. There may have been too many incorrect password attempts and it's something we need to reset on our side for security reasons. 

All the best

    • Look at various past recessions and you should notice that it WAS NOT the Economy that went down first. The markets went down first. The economy always lagged behind the market's demise. So, how is it that we are ALWAYS SURPRISED (most professionals in the business) ? Yes, the general public should be and is shocked, just like the politicians and the Mandarins. But the professionals too? Then how did they get to be called professionals at all, or be in that job?????? Fear is hyped up to DRAMATIC PROPORTIONS, The media will bombard us with dooms day scenarios, via their allies in industry. We have come across this time after time, time after time, after time. In fact during Brexit the same sort of tactic was used to confuse us all and put fear of getting out. Later we found that it was not like that at all. We face normal financial and economic dynamics based on HOW THE MARKET FORCES ACT OR REACT, OR FAIL TO ACT CORRECTLY, AND BAD GOVERNMENT POLICIES. Pundits offer governments "solutions", or do they really? All they offer is, with hindsight, plausible reasons and the same OLD "SOLUTIONS" THAT FAILED TO GENUINELY SOLVE PERMANENTLY THE PROBLEMS. Most have their pet theories as to how, QE, helicopter money, debt write offs for companies, subsidies, etc... USE THE SAME "solutions" as used in the past, repeating the same all, same all. Same all tactics, habits and practices, or is it malpractices? In the meantime how come the Central Bankers COULD NOT ANTICIPATE IT AND SOLVE IT? But wait! They have QE, INTEREST RATES and degradation of the currency (make our goods cheaper for abroad), that will fix it. DOES IT??? NOT REALLY. The reason for purchasing power of money going down over the decades is simply the inability to control or manage inflation / deflation dynamics and financial stability in the first place. There are BASIC FUNDAMENTALS  FOR FINANCIAL STABILITY THAT ARE RARELY CONSIDERED OR HANDLED. INSTEAD THE FOCUS IS ON INTEREST RATES AND SUBSIDIES AND A FEW OTHER FACTORS. We NEVER REALLY got out of the past recessions properly ---   JUST LOOK AT THE GDP GROWTH after each of the past several recessions and it has, on the whole, gotten to be less the next time round, overall. And the debts were not resolved by individuals. companies and others. Instead they were encouraged to feast on debts to get growth --- very low  interest rates   -- WOW, WHAT MAGIC. OUT WENT NATURAL ORGANIC GROWTH BASED ON MONEY PEOPLE HAVE FREE TO USE IN THEIR POCKETS. Artificial inducements seems to be the preferred way. No wonder things never solve fully and financial stress is maintained. Subsidies, write offs, QEs, laws passed to make individual bank accounts to be "taxed" above a certain limit to "help out" failing banks or when there is a run on the banks, that is a possible action in the future.  etc, etc, etc. Governments have been sold doggy ideas to steal individuals money  as a desperate measure to solve a calamity which THEY PUT OFF HANDLING FOR DECADES. It has been done in various countries in various ways in the past, e.g Cyprus 10% tax on accounts, and gold confiscations in some countries in the past, and  in several countries your cash that you carry in the pocket can be, and has been confiscated without doing any wrong because the laws passed after 9/11 allowed it so. The other way will be, in the future, banning paper money -- cash, and going digital. That will mean that full police state regarding financial control. Also, you then cannot take money out of the system. So if a bank run occurs, a big issue. And it will be great for negative interest rates charge. They have it worked out to save themselves after ruining the system themselves. Before 2007 the FED the then Chairman told many that booms and bust were over. Celebrate, bing on new debts. And so the malpractices  continued (afterall that is what gots encouraged). SO, IS A NEW RECESSION COMING? And what could it bring about? WHAT DO YOU THING?

    • Under new powers, the UK government is investigating the recently acquired stake in BT by the private French telecoms business Altice. Last December Patrick Drahi’s Altice group raised its stake in BT from 12.1 to 18%. The UK government is asking if this move breaches the National Security and investment Act passed last year.
