In all the years with IG never had this quite so bad... i best they will not honour a thing if your trade was in profit... ho hum... these bucket shops eh?

Not sure what are the legalities around it when you want to change your position or close the position and cant. If this results in loss, i am sure there can be a legal case against IG and the will have to honor it. 

Just make sure you screenshot it and also capture the reference numbers

What they should do is allow anyone who was in profit at the time of the crash to close that position at that point. They have the data so they could do this but very unlikely they will.

Main switch board number just goes dead when you press1 for existing client. Press 2 for new clients and it rings a few times before going dead. Very poor.

The chat is not working (or being very, very busy). I lost revenue being unable to change the stop and even close the EURGBP deal.

Moreover, I can't close a pending order on the same pair. 

I need an URGENT cancel of the pending order as I do not trust the system these days and would not like to enter a deal I can't control on a timely manner. 

How can I do this before the Order change into Position?

Thank you.

I couldn't close trade manually for the past 1 hour manually. The TP set and the trades were in profit and hit, but IG did not even close the trades automatically. I've the screenshots! Now i cant even login to their web and mobile. Is this on purpose?

    • My interpretation (FWIW) is that a small number of winning clients get the money, and IG 'only' keeps the spreads. But if 70 - 80% of clients are long on a market (say), and they turn out to be right (copper, recently) then I don't see how IG could stop from losing money unless it put some kind of real trade on or fund the losses from money made elsewhere (in an underlying market where most clients were wrong)
    • Interesting conversation about HOW IG operate. I have to agree with Larry trading here. IG always say they do not take the other side of the bet. BUT the fact is when you trade with them you are absolutely not in the real market, your money stays with 'Bank of IG' - so far as I am concerned if you lose they win and vice-versa. As Larry said you are placing a trade or a bet against the data feed that IG supply - that's it. There is no one on 'the other side' of your trade. The only time IG put it out to the real market is if their risk model requires that, i.e. everyone is taking one side, short or long. Again as Larry states we are NOT in the 'real market' we do not provide liquidity ! WHY should IG care about matching another client to the 'other side' of your retail trade ? They KNOW all retail traders lose anyway. If I place a 'long' trade on the DAX and lose when spread-betting, where is that loss going, WHERE EXACTLY ? It goes to IG, are you (Caseynotes) saying it goes to the other IG client taking an opposing trade, i.e. someone that went 'short' ? Bearing in mind 80% of retail traders at IG lose WHERE are all those losses going ? ANSWER: TO BANK OF IG.  CaseyNotes says ' IG matches buyers to sellers' that's a nice 'theory' ...again all the money stays with IG as we, the spread bettors, are NOT in any real market at all. You mention CFD's above and how they correlate with SB but again CFDs are not the real market they (brokers) just copy (via data-feed) the cash and futures market. As you correctly say CFDs are taxable for the rest of Europe to trade with.  I have not got a problem - like LarryBoy - about how IG operate, but as far as I am concerned Larry is right, all the trades when SB'ing stay with IG ONLY inc. all the trades / bets placed and monies stay with them. If you loose they win. End of. You can call that 'taking the other side of your trade' ... I personally do not, as it kind of implies that they are 'cheating' their Clients which they are not. Again they do not need to: ALL retail traders lose (80 - 90%).
