Cannot login to IG Markets on the browser platform.



It's been a week and a half now and I still can't login. At first I got the "unexpected error" message but now I get the "Trade as normal while our website is undergoing maintenance" message asking me to use the app. This is not acceptable for me. Tech support are saying it's my Telstra network however the phone app works fine on my network. Every other service (Nabtrade, internet banking, email etc) I use on the network is working fine. Anyone having this issue?

Ok so it looks like Telstra have restricted IG site access through their DNS as part of protecting people from bad sites which I suspect IG is trying to sort out ASAP as their use is legitimate. Telstra support were far from helpful and even said I needed to pay for their platinum service. When I suggested I would report this requirement to the Ombudsman they gave me a one off access but the Platinum team had no knowledge of the issue or how to resolve beyond trying to get me to fill in a security complaint form!

So here was my workaround for a windows 10 PC (no promises it would work for others). 

I went to my computer settings (typing in 'settings' using the magnifying glass in bottom left corner of my computer)
I then Selected 'Network & Internet' then WiFi properties
Scrolled towards the bottom of the page for 'IP settings' 
Took a note of my IPv4 address number and IPv4 gateway number.
Pressed the button to edit the 'IP assignment' and selected 'Manual'
Made IPv4 ON - then 
IPv4 address: added my IPv4 address number I took down before
IPv4 Subnetprefex length: 24
IPv4 gateway: added my IPv4 gateway number I took down before
Preferred DNS:
Alternate DNS:
Pressed Save

As a final step I cleared the DNS cache through the Run Command prompt by searching for 'Command or CMD' using the magnifying glass in bottom left corner of my computer. This brought up a black screen with C:\users\###> prompt - the ### was my user name (different for each user)
I then typed in after the C:\users\###> the following 
ipconfig /flushdns
(note the space between ipconfig and /flushdns is needed)

I also cleared my cache on my Chrome Browser (three dots) top right and selected Settings/Privacy and Security/Clear Browsing data. Then went into IG and logged in successfully.

Same issue with Telstra - IG have confirmed they are "aware of current issues affecting Australian clients ability to login to the desktop browser version of IG. Afflicted clients have been noted to have Telstra as their ISP provider. Our I.T specialist department is currently working to resolve the login issue with Telstra at the highest priority." They also said one client had contacted Telstra directly to change some ISP settings to resolve it - so next step is to have fun contacting Telstra. Will share if there is a fix this way....

I have been having the same problem logging in since September 2. But I don't believe it's only Telstra problem anymore, because myIG and View Full History are not working either and it's a big problem to deposit or withdraw money.  And I don't understand why IG is not taking action to fix these problems. It could take legal action against Telstra if indeed Telstra is the problem.

I am also having the same problem for soem weeks. I can login using Telstra as ISP sometimes but not all the time. Also when I managed to log in I can see some data, eg Position Statement  but can't access the History page etc.  I brought this to the attention of IG tech team but it appears it has not been resolved yet. They cannot explain how I can access the account using Telstra on some days/times if they have restricted IG clients accessing the IG Website. It appears IG Markets not doing much to sort out this issue. I was told to get another ISP !!

1) Bliz_23 solution worked for me.

2) Switch to Telstra Mobile instead of Telstra NBN (unplug your NBN cable).

I have been unable to login on Telstra home NBN for a few weeks now. If I unplug the NBN cable, my Telstra Gateway switches to Telstra Mobile, and that works - I can login. But Bliz_23 solution also works, changing your DNS. I am surprised that Google DNS does not work, I have been using that for many years, I never use the ISP DNS. And I never use my router as the DNS, because router DNS often fails and can be subject to Man In The Middle attacks.

    • Wheat Elliott Wave Analysis Function - Trend Mode - Trend Structure -Impulse wave Position - Wave A of (B) Direction - Wave A of (B) is still in play Details -  Wheat daily and H4 have been adjusted due to how fast and deep decline from 720’4 has emerged. The long-term forecast on the daily chart shows that the surge to 720’4 is part of the impulse wave from March 2022. We are now in wave (5) which is expected to emerge into a 3-wave structure. Price now appears to be in wave A after which it will correct upside for B before returning downside. Overview: Since late May, grain prices have been falling sharply, with Wheat shedding over 20% since May 28th, 2024. This decline is about to erase the gains made from mid-April to late May. The nearly one-month sell-off adds to the long-term decline from March 2022, when Wheat traded at 1364’4. Currently trading at 571’4, Wheat is likely to fall further toward 500 in the coming weeks.   Daily Chart Analysis: The decline from March 2022 is forming a bearish impulse wave structure in the primary degree. The 5th wave is completing a diagonal structure, which has been the most time-consuming among the actionary waves, lasting nearly 21 months. The price is currently in wave (5) of 5 (circled), which will likely evolve into a 3-wave structure targeting the 500 major psychological level.   H4 Chart Analysis: The H4 chart shows the sub-waves of wave (5), which is now close to completing its first leg - wave A of (5). A corrective bounce is expected to follow for wave B before the price turns downside for wave C of (5) toward 500, provided the 720’4 pivot is not breached. Wheat and other grains are overwhelmingly bearish and may continue in this direction for the next several weeks before major bullish corrections begin.   In conclusion, Wheat prices remain bearish with potential for further declines, targeting the 500 psychological level, contingent on the completion of the current corrective wave B and the subsequent wave C of (5).

    • TXN Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Daily Chart, Texas Instruments Inc., (TXN) Daily Chart TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Triangle POSITION: Wave {iv}. DIRECTION: Bottom in wave {iv}.   DETAILS: Looking for a triangle in wave {iv} of 3 as we have found resistance on TL2 at 200$.     TXN Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4Hr Chart, Texas Instruments Inc., ( TXN) 4Hr Chart TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Triangle POSITION: Wave (e) of {iv}. DIRECTION: Bottom in (e).   DETAILS: Looking for wave (e) to be near completion to then resume higher and find support on top of 200$.   Welcome to our latest Elliott Wave analysis for Texas Instruments Inc. (TXN). This analysis provides an in-depth look at TXN's price movements using the Elliott Wave Theory, helping traders identify potential opportunities based on current trends and market structure. We will cover insights from both the daily and 4-hour charts to offer a comprehensive perspective on TXN's market behavior.   * TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart* In our Elliott Wave analysis of Texas Instruments Inc. (TXN), we observe a counter-trend corrective pattern characterized by a triangle structure. TXN is currently positioned in wave {iv} of 3, suggesting a bottoming process in wave {iv}. The recent price action indicates that TXN has encountered resistance around the TL2 trendline at $200. This resistance could imply the formation of a triangle in wave {iv}, setting the stage for a potential resumption of the upward trend once the triangle completes. Traders should monitor the $200 level for signs of a breakout or further consolidation within the triangle.   *TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – 4Hr Chart* On the 4-hour chart, TXN is following a counter-trend corrective mode within a triangle structure, specifically in wave (e) of {iv}. The current analysis suggests that wave (e) is nearing completion, which could signal the end of the triangle and the beginning of a move higher. The completion of wave (e) should ideally find support above the $200 level, aligning with the daily chart's indication of a possible upward resumption post-triangle. Traders should watch for the termination of wave (e) and the subsequent price action to confirm a bullish continuation.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
