IG Platform Bug Costing Me Money. Order placed But Disappeared

Guest Tigerflow


Guest Tigerflow

I placed an order in my CFD account a week ago. It disappeared only to be suddenly executed yesterday.

The timing was all wrong and I would have removed the order but suddenly had an open position on a stock that I didn't want.

IG don't acknowledge this but I think i can't be the only one experiencing this. IG's response has been customer support is really bad 

with this type of thing. Can anyone help? Any similar experiences out there?

Hi - I've investigated this further and can see that there was no error on our part. I also believe on this trade you actually made a profit, however the commission on the CFD resulted in a cost to yourself. 

I have asked the Trading Services sales trader who you discussed this with previously to contact you directly and look into a one off good will action. They should be in contact immediately :) Hopefully this resolves your experience. All the best and happy trading.

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
