Unreliable IG ALERTS - Deletion by system after weekend maintenance


Recommended Posts

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. :(

    • By the way if its a system you want to demo or try, I trade US 500 and Russell Long only, with no stops, I would not trade with no stops for gold, oil etc but am happy to do it on US indices as nothing recovers as quickly as US markets, so if I am wrong i just hold it until it goes in profit again, when I am wrong I wait until market recovers, so sometimes when market has gone against me I have to wait 4 -8 weeks before it recovers but this way means no drawdowns only overnight currency charge which is minima. You need to trade wihin your accoutn to do this as you need to make sure your balance is big enough when you get it wrong. You could try it on IG demo account  to see if it worked for you.
    • Yes your balance needs to be above 0, that's your most important number don't fall into the trap of thinking if its above 0 you can put trades on, you can but your balance needs to be big enough that if they go against you, you are still above 0, if not you get messgage from IG to add funds to your account or IG will take you out of trades, so if you had a trade you wanted to keep on it would now be taken out as a loss as funds in balance are in minus. You need a big enough number left in the balance column that if your trades go against you you can still hold if you want to.
    • Now all Musk has to do is buy BTC again and re-ramp for another shed load of profit.....
