The new Terms & Conditions, any clue???



IG has come up with new T&C for using their services. Every time I log in , the screen shows the count down to the time I have to accept those.


Every large organisation , when they change their T&C they send you a brief outline of what the majour changes are.

All, but IG. No attempt to clarify what has been changed and why.

IG is very amateurish in this and most aspects. Can't they do a better job, than just mug our money?


And will happen if I don't accept the changes? Will I not be able to log in, or my account deleted and my money scooped away and shoved in IG bosses pockets, or what???


Accepting the changes means nothing in practice. We click and that is. Who is going to read tons of pages of small print, conflicting with each other terms, only made to protect IG but none to protect the customer? Basically, so far I see it, T&C say that IG can do anything at any time and traders have no recourse to anything but just pay up or else.

So what are the changes, mods???

Hi   Not that much has changed from the version you signed on join-up. What is different is in bold print so you can skim through. Mostly just re-wording to make clearer your responsibility re; margin requirements, use of third party data providers, up-dating contact details. I think the bit about recording all comms with client is new.


Any-one spot anything else?

Hi - thanks for your message, and also for  additional post. 


We have recently made some changes to our customer agreement and privacy policy. We email clients giving an overview of these changes, however for convenience I have included the quoted text below. As with any query or question you have, or if you’d like to receive a copy of your existing terms, please contact our customer service team. They’re available 24 hours a day from 8am Sunday to 10pm Friday, and 9am to 5pm Saturday. 




We’re making some changes to your customer agreements (‘agreements’) and privacy notice, which you’ll need to accept by 31 October in order to continue trading with us.To accept the changes now, login to either My IG or the IG Trading app. Or read on for a rundown of what’s changing, and why.

Please be aware that as of 31 October, you won’t be able to place any new trades unless you’ve accepted the new agreements and privacy notice.

What’s changing?
We’re making changes to all our customer agreements – the documents that govern our relationship with you, and all of the contracts and transactions you enter into with us. We’re doing this in order to:

• Make the agreements clearer and easier to understand
• Provide for new systems, services and technology we have introduced
• Reflect changes in applicable regulations
• Reflect changes in how we do business

These changes apply to all our agreements, covering our full product offering and all of the account types you hold with IG. You’ll need to accept the new agreement for each account type that you hold with us. Beyond that, there are a few specific changes that you should be aware of:

• We’ve updated our dealing procedures and reporting provisions
• We’ve clarified the circumstances in which you may be in default of our customer agreements
• We’ve changed the provisions on what we are allowed to do with the money we hold on your behalf (client money)
• We’ve amended what we are liable for, particularly in relation to third parties
• We’ve updated the commitments you make each time you trade with us, in relation to your actions and how you use our services

Finally, if you trade with IG using a leveraged account, then your expiry positions will now automatically roll over by default – unless you’ve told us otherwise. You can view the new agreements in full on our website. For any new accounts you open, you’ll also need to accept the new agreements.

Privacy notice
We’ve also updated our privacy notice, which governs our management of your personal information, to be more transparent and provide you with more disclosure. You’ll need to accept the new privacy notice along with your agreements.


If you’ve requested not to receive marketing communications from us, then accepting the new privacy notice won’t reverse that – you’ll remain opted out. You can view the updated policy here.

    • Hi  For those interested in the Video Gaming industry we recently interviewed the product manager for VanEck Video Gaming & Esports ETF to talk about how the industry will perform as lockdown measures start to ease and what is fueling future growth https://blubrry.com/igtradingthemarkets/74972956/how-investors-can-profit-from-the-growing-video-gaming-and-esports-industry/   Are there any other exciting sectors you would like to see covered on the podcast by an industry expert?
    • Yes I am aware that I have selected the guaranteed stop level as I have been for a while in preparation for when the live account is approved, the live account will have to use a guaranteed stop on each trade, which I think is a good idea as it reduces exposure to risk and the margin required as it is a controlled risk as apposed to an uncapped or un controlled risk. Normally the stop limit on this trade is a minimum of 8 points, in this screen shot it it is set at 30 points which has increased the required margin to $1775, when it is at 8 or 10 the margin would be around $1300. If I set the stop to 139 points the margin will increase to $17,000 or more, obviously blocking the trade with a $10,000 account fund. Thank you for your suggestion,  however it isn't because I have selected a guaranteed stop as I normally do. having given this some thought, I guess if there is excessive price volatility / uncertainty, as there is when the price is at 1.39000 the system sets the GSL very high for protection, the price could easily run away, that being said if it was hit at 139 it would lead to a massive loss, maybe $7000.  
    • Hi guys.  Wanted to thank you guys for viewing my posts and hope you have found it helpful . If anyone has any feedback as to how I can improve them to provide more help please shoot them here.   God Bless CA
