I was surprised that I could not take a position. good luck to team solve the problem and hope it does not happen too often.

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.

they have frozen the system so would expect orders to be cancelled before restart

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 

That would be great if we could even get onto the site to screen grab it... cheers anyway

This will be great .. .if the price is not dropping too low and somehow the order will be filled. Fingers crossed.

I did manage to log in to the static siet and screen grab my positions with the computer time and date showing. Thanks - good idea...

US opens in 13mins. This has happened many times in the last 30 days, looks like IG index has not learnt its lesson.

Hope everyone recovers all of their cost plus damaged for anxiety & stress caused by IG-INDEX failure.

I have used IG nearly 3 years and have never had a shutdown quite as bad as this before. IG are usually very helpful so I am hopeful for a fix very very soon 🤞

I have received these before. A polite warning from IG that your balance needs looking at, its an automatic reply. Do not worry IG will know the situation and I am sure your account will be fine 👍
