Nervous about depositing funds - ig tried to withdraw 10 x more money from bank account


Recommended Posts

Hi There, 

I setup a trading account with ig.com this afternoon, so I could specifically trade shares on ASX. 

As I'm a new user and never used ig.com before, I wanted to test deposit a small amount of money into my account. 

1. So I typed in £100 and attempted to deposit this much from my bank card.  I was alerted with a message/prompt, which stated I need to withdraw £250 as a minimum.

2. So I then tried to withdraw £250.  And the ig.com web page, when wanted me to open my mobile app to approve the purchase.  

SCREENSHOT BELOW, (cropped to remove my account id).

To my horror, I instantly saw when I logged in that ig.com had attempted to withdraw £2,500 from my bank account!!!   I "cancelled" the deposit immediately, however this is showing as "pending" still with my bank.

Has this happened to anyone before?  I am nervous and worried about depositing money into ig.com, as my first experience with them so far has been not good.

To make things worse, I called up up ig.com customer services and the advisor told me, that "I" had apparently attempted to deposit £2,500 twice myself.  And the only way I could have done this, is by typing in 2500.

I told him this is not true and I have a screenshot, with my account id included, which clearly shows 250.00 GBP.

So far, I'm super concerned that IG systems have logged 2 "transactions".  Which both were no £2,500.

The customer service guy didnt even want to see my screenshot.  He confirmed both transactions have been cancelled. And I've asked my bank to not let this pending transaction process.

However, so far ig.com website seems highly untrustworthy.

Has anyone else experienced similar issues today?

Hi @ReenaVerma,

 

1. The minimum deposit of GBP 250 is normal, it is stated on the deposit funds page next to the field where you enter the amount :image.png

 

2 . The page that comes up to verify/confirm your transaction is not managed by IG. It is your bank pop-in a verification window. 
It is possible that you made a typo on  the amount the first time.
There are 2 declined transaction on your account on for 250 one for 2500.

I would recommend to call us on 0800 195 3100 while you are trying to make a deposit for live assistance.
Card payments are immediate, if there is no amount on your balance it would mean that they were declined. Your bank might take a day or two to change the pending status on their end.

I hope that it helps.

All the best - Arvin

Hi Arvin, 

I definitely did not type 2500.  I think this is the most frustrating part of the dialogue with your team. 

My attempt was for £100.
My second attempt was for £250.  And my screenshot clearly displays this.

There is clearly a problem with your website and for whatever reason, why the transactional amounts being passed from ig.com, to your records/database. And to my bank, don't seem to tally up.

Please could you ask your web team to look into this issue? Or if there is a general bug with your website?

I dont why know you're asking me if I typed in 2500, twice?  When I have clearly stated for the third time, that I did not.

Thank you,
Reena

Wave Cancel invalid level: 41239   The NIKKEI 225 Elliott Wave Analysis on the daily chart focuses on understanding the current market dynamics through the lens of the Elliott Wave Principle. This analysis identifies the function as a counter trend, indicating that the market is currently in a phase that moves against the prevailing trend. The mode of this movement is corrective, meaning it is a temporary retracement or consolidation within the larger trend.   The primary wave structure under scrutiny is orange wave C, which is positioned within navy blue wave 4. This suggests that the market is in the fourth wave of a larger wave sequence, and specifically, within the third sub-wave of this fourth wave. The direction for the next higher degree is towards navy blue wave 5, which indicates that once the current corrective phase is complete, the market is expected to resume its primary trend direction in the fifth wave.   Details from the analysis highlight that orange wave B of wave 4 is likely completed, setting the stage for orange wave C to come into play. Orange wave C is part of the corrective pattern and represents the final leg of the correction before the trend resumes. The completion of orange wave B signifies a pivotal point in the market, where the correction is likely moving towards its end phase, preparing for the continuation of the main trend.   An invalidation level is set at 41239. This level is crucial because if the market price reaches or exceeds this point, it would invalidate the current wave count and necessitate a reevaluation of the wave structure. This invalidation level acts as a safeguard for traders, ensuring they can adjust their strategies if the market behaves unexpectedly.   In summary, the NIKKEI 225 Elliott Wave Analysis on the daily chart provides a detailed outlook of the market's corrective phase within a counter trend. With orange wave B of navy blue wave 4 likely completed, the focus is now on orange wave C. Traders should be aware of the invalidation level at 41239, which serves as a critical point for reassessing the wave count. This analysis aids in making informed decisions by anticipating the next phase of market movement within the Elliott Wave framework.     NIKKEI 225(N225) Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Weekly Chart NIKKEI 225(N225) Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: corrective STRUCTURE:orange wave C POSITION: navy blue wave 4 DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER  DEGREES: navy blue wave 5 DETAILS orange wave B of wave 4 looking completed, now orange wave C is in play. Wave Cancel invalid level: 41239   The NIKKEI 225 Elliott Wave Analysis on the weekly chart provides insights into the market's current behavior using the Elliott Wave Principle. This analysis identifies the market function as a counter trend, indicating that the current movements are against the primary trend. The mode is corrective, suggesting a temporary retracement or consolidation phase rather than a continuation of the main trend.   The primary wave structure being analyzed is orange wave C, which is part of a larger corrective pattern. This wave is positioned within navy blue wave 4, indicating that the market is in the fourth wave of a broader wave sequence. Following the completion of this corrective phase, the market is expected to proceed to navy blue wave 5, resuming the primary trend direction.   The analysis details that orange wave B of navy blue wave 4 appears to be complete. This completion signals a critical point in the corrective pattern, as it suggests the market has finished the preceding segment of the correction and is now transitioning into orange wave C. This wave represents the final leg of the correction before the market resumes its main trend.   A key aspect of the analysis is the invalidation level set at 41239. This level is crucial for traders and analysts because if the market price reaches or surpasses this point, the current wave count would be invalidated. This means the expected wave structure would no longer be valid, necessitating a reassessment of the market's wave patterns. The invalidation level serves as a safeguard, ensuring that strategies can be adjusted if the market does not behave as anticipated.   In summary, the NIKKEI 225 Elliott Wave Analysis on the weekly chart outlines a corrective phase within a counter trend. With orange wave B of navy blue wave 4 likely completed, the focus shifts to the development of orange wave C. This phase is critical as it marks the final part of the correction before the market resumes its primary trend towards navy blue wave 5. The analysis highlights the importance of the invalidation level at 41239, which helps in validating the current wave count and adjusting trading strategies accordingly.     Technical Analyst : Malik Awais Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
