Unreliable IG ALERTS - Deletion by system after weekend maintenance

Due to the continual loss of ALL Alerts data - the platform has now become unreliable.


If the platform had functionality to allow the user to Export (Backup) Alerts and Import (Restore) Alerts - then this unreliability could be mitigated by the user.

 

It is extremely time consuming to have to manually re-enter all Alerts that have been accumulated each week, and then lost at the weekend - the deletion is probably as a result of IG system maintenance being carried out.

 

We have not found any other platforms to be as unreliable as this.

Yes, totally agree. I had reported this problem months ago and today lost alerts once more (4 times so far). Their support team said they had no idea what the problem is and do not know if they will ever be able to fix it! Suggest use another product, that's what I'm going to have to do. Without alerts makes the product useless.

Hi Digi,

Thanks for sharing your experience as well - at least we know it is not a user error on our side. We also logged the same problem weeks back and are also not getting any confidence from the support team that they know when it will be fixed. We have moved to another platform as a couple of our trading strategies have market entry driven by alerts ...... and without reliable alerts we can't trade. :(

    • Does anybody know the BIL (SPDR Bloomberg 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF) equivalent with a GBP currency hedge? I want the interest yield but I don't want the currency risk.
    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
