Account froze during GBP flash crash

Guest JM93


My whole IG account on MT4 froze half way through the GBP flash crash as I happened to have a short position running? Lost a lot of profit, kept getting error message saying 'invalid trade' on trying to close?

Tried to phone support desk just to be told they cant connect me to someone that can help because they are busy.

Then contacted website support, and after sending my videos and pictures as they requested, they then cancelled the chat on me..


If someone could explain why this happened and what can be done please?

I am based in the UK but not sure where you both are based @JM93 and @isomer and it is around 5:00 am and my UK Spread Betting account seems to be fine. From my understanding it happened after Apple's announcement and Asian markets got affected. It seems to be Australian markets that may have started it but the detail is scarce so early in the morning today. I am sure more news will come out as the morning progresses. 

@JamesIG, another example of where it would be useful to know which country the traders are operating in. Different countries may have had different issues with IG during this 'Flash Crash'. 


I am based in UK too.

    • @KoketsoIGFollowing up endlessly. Any updates yet?
    • Recently, we have noticed the growth of Mobile mining, a lot of projects have sprung up where users earn passively through these mining platforms. Under the same breath, ICE blockchain has evolved as a new digital currency that can be mined or earned from any mobile device. The bourgeoning blockchain is solely based on a community of trust and has a decentralized governance model. The network is built with inherent scalability, such that it can scale a good number of network participants without compromising its speed or efficiency. On its most positive side, the Ice Open Network has high performance and has the innate capacity to process millions of transactions per second, heralding it as one of the fastest blockchains in the world. Through the instrument of its threads and shards, it parallelizes transactions into bits thus significantly increasing throughput and enhancing scalabilty. Apart from being highly scalable, it is an offshoot of TON blockchain that seeks to bring forth decentralized services for data privacy, user control and efficient data management. In the core spirit of Web3, Ice network has a decentralized identity service that allows users to create and manage their own digital identities with top level assurance, privacy and security. Flowing from above, the ICE network has a good number of usecases and more are in the offing as well. Consequently, platforms like Bitget have declared intent to list the native token $ICE on 28th February, with a deposit to earn event. This is a really good way for the project to garner spotlight. I’m optimistic as per its growth in the long run.    
    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
