Hi @Slater,  IG shut down all the platforms every Friday evening, was about 10 pm - now seems to be about midnight UK time for about 4 hours for security updates etc.

I'm thinking the helpdesk and dealing desk are also closed over Friday evening til 8 am Saturday in the UK. Check your country's times in 'Contact Us' page.

Hey Guys,

The issue I have is not being able to input orders on the new platform on  Saturday & Sunday (13 & 14 Oct).

The message on the order input screen comes up as "This market is not open to trade"

We don't want to trade. We just want to input a bunch of orders.

To get around this I put my orders through the old platform and it worked fine.

Go figure.

Regards

Hunj

Hi @h7, on the new platform if you have the 'Deal' ticket selected you will get "This market is not open to trade"

but if you switch to the 'Order' ticket you will not get the notice and should be able to place the order.

Maybe it depends on the particular market but I just had an order accepted on FTSE.

    • this probably should have been ignored, but IMHO it was a new low.  obviously jlz tried to help someone here, and referred to others to add emphasis to a point.  I'm writing this because I actually asked for support in my earlier response, and I'm very pleased I'm not the only one who reacted to this post thoughtfully, so I think it would be pretty weak if I didn't speak up here. That may make me look ridiculous, and like my tongue is now travelling through a bunch of cracks, but I don't give a **** (like I think you would not either).    I'm actually surprised that you @dmedin  left it to this statement - usually you're significantly more effective in warning people of the hazards we face as retail punters IMHO - I think you definitely had stronger moments. you know what I would find useful:  having a separate, focused thread for insults  - I'm sure by now the respective targets wouldn't mind (to not again say not give a ****), and other discussions could become - let's say "leaner". I genuinely think I got a lot of valuable insights from many of your posts here, and I highly appreciate the honest feedback, and I also believe you have good intentions. I don't know about any history between you, jlz, THT, and Caseynotes.  I further think you play an important role here in this forum and I look forward to more productive discussions with you. But the post quoted above was a new low.
