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....

Telstra got me up and running. As far as I can see they changed the DNS settings of my Telstra modem. Orignally I had 'Telstra' as my Primary DNS and nothing in the other DNS  fields after I had this:

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.

    • As a crypto trader mastering the art of trade is quite a torturous journey; one that comes with patience and perseverance especially with the changes in regulatory requirements. As you know crypto trading requires a trader to carefully choose a secure and reputable exchange, one that can provide instructive charts that contains basic TA tools (those you can primarily find on Binance and Bitget) 
    • FTSE 100 at one-year high and DAX rallies, while S&P 500 keeps struggling European indices have outpaced their US counterparts in recent days, as the S&P 500 continues to find it hard to keep rallying. Source: Bloomberg  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Wednesday 27 September 2023 11:41 FTSE 100 Yesterday’s push opened the door to fresh post-pandemic highs and puts the buyers firmly back on top. Expectations of a potential turn lower back towards 7200 and further down have been cancelled out, with the index now targeting 7500 and 7650 to the upside. Source: ProRealTime DAX Thursday saw the index recoup lost ground and make a new record high, and with this now achieved bullish momentum will likely carry the price to fresh highs. There is still no sign of a pullback, and with the index at a new higher high even a drop back towards 15,800 would still be more of a potential buying opportunity. Source: ProRealTime S&P 500 By contrast a small retracement continues here, with the index unable to rally back to previous highs as yet. Declines continue to target 4550 as an initial area of support. A recovery back above 4675 could easily see the buyers take control once again. Source: ProRealTime
    • Brent crude oil, natural gas prices rise while gold drops to one-month low Outlook on Brent crude oil, gold and natural gas as the US dollar continues to appreciate. Source: Bloomberg  Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Wednesday 27 September 2023 11:27 Brent crude oil climbs on supply tightness The price of Brent crude oil resumed its ascent as concerns about supply tightness heading into the winter gripped markets with last week’s ten-month high at $94.97 being back in sight. Immediate resistance lurks around last Tuesday’s $93.32 low. Support below Wednesday’s intraday low at $92.60 can be found around last Thursday’s $91.37 trough. Further down sits more important support between the $90.97 early September high and Tuesday’s $90.49 low. Source: ProRealTime Gold drops to one-month low Gold’s descent from last week’s $1,947 per troy ounce high accompanied by a rising US dollar has taken it to a one-month low towards the $1,893 June low. Further down sits the August low at $1,885 which may also be reached over the coming days. Minor resistance above the mid-September low at $1,901 can be found around the 6 September low at $1,916. Source: ProRealTime Natural gas prices stabilize above support On Tuesday US natural gas futures revisited their recent low at $2.791 but managed to bounce off it with this week’s high at $2.924 being in focus as supply tightness pushes price up. A rise above $2.924 would engage the psychological $3.000 region and last week’s high at $3.021. Further up sits the August peak at $3.050. A currently unexpected slip through last week’s low at $2.791 could lead to the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at $2.727 being reached. Source: ProRealTime
