Has IG stopped new Crypto trades permanently as the market looks close to an end or is it just temporary?


Recommended Posts

Normally IG re-opens Crypto trading on Saturday afternoon.  I noticed that trading re-commenced but then stopped.  At the moment, you can call to close trades but not take out new ones.  This makes sense if Crypto is close to the end, as IG won't be able to offset it's positions once the coins are worthless and there is no underlying market.  I trust IG to get these decisions right because historically they have done an awesome job at risk management.  Just wondering if this is temporary or if IG has called time on Crypto with the end expected in the next few weeks or sooner?

OK.  I spoke too soon!  Looks like it is back up and running... for now.

Hi @JohnD22,

Thank you for your post.

Cryptocurrencies markets close at 10pm on Friday night (UK time), then reopen on Saturday at 8am (UK time).

On weekends IG performs backups, it is possible that some maintenance are longer that other, hence delays.

I hope that it helps.

All the best - Arvin

    • As the cryptocurrency space evolves, Bitget keeps bringing up worthwhile initiatives to make crypto trading interesting and easy for its users as well as helping them maximise profit.  Gleaning from the likes of Candybomb to PoolX and the likes, the CEX has been seen to steadily provide these services. The PRE MARKET trade seems to be the newest product on the block right now. It is an over the counter trading platform that specialises in providing a pre-traded marketplace for new coins before official listing.  Simply put, it is a p2p framework of some sort that facilitates trading between buyers and sellers enabling them to acquire coins at optimal price thus enhancing advance liquidity and complete delivery at a mutually agreed upon time.  The interesting thing about the Pre Market is that; it allows the advocates or supporters of newly launched projects to trade through a contract before the token goes mainstream or before being airdropped.  This framework is very good for projects that have very high speculation, speculative traders should check out this product.  Good thing is the Pre trade is already live, you can leverage on it to purchase $MERL before its official listing, you could get to earn massive ROI. Here's the link; https://www.bitget.com/pre-market/MERLUSDT
    • Atomic Wallet is experiencing issues with their staking and rewards, so I would like to transfer my ATOMs to another crypto wallet. I contacted Atomic Wallet Support and they recommended Cosmostation Wallet and gave me instructions on how to do this. I followed the links they sent me, which required me to fill in my seed phrase. My ATOMs transferred to Cosmostation Wallet but were immediately transferred out. I never made that transaction. I contacted Cosmostation Wallet Support and asked them what happened. They informed me that I must have been talking to a scammer posing as support from Atomic Wallet. I contacted Atomic Wallet and they said I wasn't talking to a scammer and those links are legit. I lost my funds because my PC must be infected. Atomic Wallet wouldn't outright scam me would they?
