Email support Non existant


Recommended Posts

Is it just me or do others find the complete lack of supports response, is one of the biggest 
downsides to dealing with Brokers such as IG. ??

This is not exclusive to IG but they are at the top of my list.

I emailed new accounts 4 business days ago with a follow up question,  and have still not had a response.
This is not the first time by any stretch of the imagination (as even I am prepared to give the benefit
of doubt, especially around this time of year) If it was a one off, I wouldn't be writing this.

What is really annoying is that I don't even l know if anyone has read my email enquirie/s

No acknowledgement, no notification that it's been received and someone will respond. Nothing!
How long do I need to wait? Even if I received a canned  email response saying we will respond
24/48/72 hours or whatever. I would not have to continually check my emails for a response
and left wondering when I might get an answer. Why should I as a paying customer have to spend my
time chasing support?

Why the F as a client/customer, (ie: someone that is earning the broker business money) have to put up
with a complete lack of service.

Don't get me started on "Chat" support. If it's anything more than a basic question they have no idea
and unfortunately many support have english as a second language and have little understanding
of the nuances of the language, leading to further frustration, having to go over the same question
and try and convey in a different way so hopefully my support person can understand.

Please note the above rant is not exclusive to IG, but they are guilty of 99% of what I have experienced

    • If you had left a limit order based on the previous margin requirement, it's likely the system would've adjusted it to match the new rate once it changed. This helps prevent any unexpected margin calls. However, it's always wise to double-check your orders, especially when there are fluctuations in margin requirements. 
    • Just look at CZ's impact on Binance or Gracy Chen's leadership at Bitget. It's incredible how a visionary leader can propel an organization forward. Gracy Chen's track record speaks for itself – fourfold growth in two years is no small feat! With her at the helm, Bitget could indeed be on track to reach new heights.
    • Hey, have you all heard about this zkLink Nova project? It's supposed to be some next-level technology for Ethereum and Layer 2 networks, and I've been looking into it. I'm telling you, this could be massive! Alright, let me break it down for you. zkLink Nova is like an "Aggregated Layer 3 zkEVM Rollup network" built on top of zkSync's ZK Stack. I know, it sounds super technical, but hear me out. Basically, it's a way to integrate all the liquidity and assets from Ethereum and different Layer 2 rollups into one unified platform. Now, why is that a big deal, you ask? Well, right now, all these networks are like separate islands, you know what I mean? Their assets and liquidity are fragmented, and we have to use questionable bridges to move stuff around. It's a complete mess, and it opens up security risks like crazy. But with zkLink Nova, they're using some fancy zero-knowledge proof magic to let us access the combined liquidity without needing to bridge assets! Can you imagine that? It's like having one massive, happy DeFi playground with all the toys under one roof. No more hopping around networks or dealing with shady bridge protocols. Just pure, unified liquidity and assets at our fingertips. The possibilities for dApp developers with that kind of power are insane! And get this – the zkLink team has already lined up over 60 partners to help steer this Layer 3 ecosystem! We're talking big names like Coinbase Ventures and Arrington Capital, who have already invested a whopping $23M into the zkLink ecosystem's development. I'm telling you, this Nova thing could be a game-changer for the Ethereum and Layer 2 space. It's like they're solving one of the biggest headaches we've had in DeFi with all these incompatible networks. Oh, and here's the kicker – the $ZKL token, which is the native token for the zkLink ecosystem, is now available for premarket trade on Bitget! This could be our chance to get in early on what might become the backbone of a whole new era of DeFi interoperability. But I want to know what you all think. Are you buying into the zkLink Nova hype? Or do you think it's just another overhyped project promising the moon? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
