My etherum position was automatically closed by IG with my profits all gone, I can’t even search them now. Anyone knows what’s happening?

Yes, this happened to me too I had a limit order set just as it reached the limit price to close the position and take a profit  I receive an email position closed sell 2 contracts @ the buy price P/L nil. No information in market info and interestingly I still have a Ether position on my Demo account that says DO NOT USE. I must admit the demo account demonstrated to me  no to go short as you could not cut your losses when it was un-long-able. I would like to know if it is IG's policy to cut winning positions or is it just a glitch with the system that is going to be sorted out. Looking forward to finding out what happened also.

Yes, my position has been reinstated along with the limit price (market closed Sunday 31 about 20.00 in the IG world) the last price 741.50 US   I have had an email sent to me, it looks like IG has dropped the bundling of 10 ether in a mini ether contract, no mention of mini. Existing non- executed orders have been deleted it would seem. Looks like someone is on the job..... I would say there are some people on the platform that would have been ecstatic that their short positions and losses were canceled talk about a happy new year lol!  Still would like to know what is going on tho cheers to all. Happy New Year! especially to those that are working at IG ... many thanks!!!!

Hi all - we emailed all clients to let them know about this a couple of weeks ago and there was a call out exercise, however given the volume of clients, and those who opened in between now and then, we wouldn't have been able to contact everyone one-to-one. I have included the email below for your convenience.

    • What is Foreign Exchange? Foreign exchange (Forex or FX) is the conversion of one currency into another at a specific rate known as the foreign exchange rate. The conversion rates for almost all currencies are constantly floating as they are driven by the market forces of supply and demand. The most traded currencies in the world are the United States dollar, Euro, Japanese yen, British pound, and Australian dollar. The US dollar remains the key currency, accounting for more than 87% of total daily value traded.Factors that Affect Foreign Exchange Rates Many factors can potentially influence the market forces behind foreign exchange rates. The factors include various economic, political, and even psychological conditions. The economic factors include a government’s economic policies, trade balances, inflation, and economic growth outlook. Political conditions also exert a significant impact on the forex rate, as events such as political instability and political conflicts may negatively affect the strength of a currency. The psychology of forex market participants can also influence exchange rates. The Foreign Exchange Market The foreign exchange market is a decentralized and over-the-counter market where all currency exchange trades occur. It is the largest (in terms of trading volume) and the most liquid market in the world. On average, the daily volume of transactions on the forex market totals $5.1 trillion, according to the Bank of International Settlements’ Triennial Central Bank Survey (2016). The forex market major trading centers are located in major financial hubs around the world, including New York, London, Frankfurt, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Sydney. Due to this reason, foreign exchange transactions are executed 24 hours, five days a week (except weekends). Despite the decentralized nature of forex markets, the exchange rates offered in the market are the same among its participants, as arbitrage opportunities can arise otherwise. The foreign exchange market is probably one of the most accessible financial markets. Market participants range from tourists and amateur traders to large financial institutions (including central banks) and multinational corporations. Also, the forex market does not only involve a simple conversion of one currency into another. Many large transactions in the market involve the application of a wide variety of financial instruments, including forwards, swaps, options, etc. Foreign currency exchange (forex) A foreign currency exchange rate is a price that represents how much it costs to buy the currency of one country using the currency of another country. Currency traders buy and sell currencies through forex transactions based on how they expect currency exchange rates will fluctuate. When the value of one currency rises relative to another, traders will earn profits if they purchased the appreciating currency, or suffer losses if they sold the appreciating currency.  
    • Totally agree, the growth of Bitget Wallet will have a positive impact on $BWB. The potential for both seems exciting. Good luck to you too, and hopefully everyone can benefit from these earning opportunities.
    • Sounds like Mystiko Network is making some serious waves in the interoperability space. Seamless compatibility across multiple blockchains is a game changer, especially with the ZK SDK for secure and private dApps. Big backing from Samsung and Coinlist adds credibility too. I will keep an eye on that Bitget listing, it could be a major boost for $XZK
