I hope the numbers showing in the account are not right ... not a good start dealing with IG :-(. Wondering what is the stress compensation factor? :-)))😴

without doubt unacceptable by IG! I would not recommend them as a reliable broker.  This has happened too often...

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 👍

I have NO open positions so this message only means that somehow, orders were triggered ... I think that I can only wait and see (eventually pray a bit too)

I am back up and running, not too much damage. I hope anyone who has had loss contact IG. I do agree with Viorel for compensation for stress 😨

Now it is stable. I had one pending order and was able to close it. In my case was mainly stress and the loss revenue of the previous position that I was unable to close in due time ... 

Wondering of the IG position on this.

Happy tradings for the rest of the day!

Just an idea, but maybe worth having an account elsewhere too? That way if you are having a platform problem on one and you can't do anything with your positions, at least you can use the other platform to nullify that trade.

e.g. say you were short us500 this morning on igindex but as it moved so strongly against you, you wanted to close that position but were unable to do so, then you could place an equivalent short trade on the other platform.

Shorted USD/CHF at 7.35pm Singapore Time. Tried to close at 8pm to take profit. System didnt respond. 

Kept trying until it spiked and went into losing trade. Tried closing trade from 8pm to 8.45pm. System didnt respond. No respond as well using mobile app. 

Login again at 9ish. Shows the trade is still opened but did not display any margin. 

Use change to other pairs. Shows missing bars from 9pm to 9.40pm. Tried Pro Realtime. Same problem. 

Tried contacting via phone. Cant get through. Tried live chat. no response. 

What is going on IG?!?!

You are suggesting that it is time to switch platforms? go CMC?

Data is indicative.

The demo platform is dodgy as hell.  Turns out the production platform is too.

We're not responsible.

You gambled with your dosh and you lost it.

Not our problem!

Calm down everyone, I can assure you that any losses you incur would not have been down to IG. You should always practice good money management!

I am sure many clients had the similar issues, either loss or still have profit, anyway, I would suggest to open up a voting post for IG to response to this issue.

    • 1) It would be really helpful to be able to change a stop loss from normal to guaranteed stop in the online trading platform. Currently we can only do that on the mobile app which is ridiculous because the online trading platform should be having more features than the mobile app. 2) Allow us to set limit (take profit) for partial position size. Example if I buy 5 contracts of AUD/USD at 0.7150. I would like the option to be able to set take profit for 3 contracts at 0.7170 and 2 contracts at 0.7190.   
    • Hi Folks, The platform advertises that you need to place three or more trades in the previous month to avail of the free trading on US stocks (no $15 commission) for the subsequent month. However, even with that commission fee gone you're going to have to pay IG for the currency conversion each time. You're going back and forth between buying and selling, GBP to USD to GBP ...this will equate to a lot of money. So, you've realised the above and to avoid this really ridiculous and expensive merry-go-round you turn on multi-currency feature, right? In your head you think:   "I want to exclusively trade US stocks, I've waited one month (you'd have rathered to just pay IG and not need to wait), made more than three trades on that currency merry-go-round, I am happy to pay the reasonable quarterly fee to IG from here on in and keep the account as USD while availing of their most advertised feature, the commission free trading on US stock market". The new month arrives and you can have a great time trading on the US stock market with your dollar that doesn't keep eating away at any trade profits with each buy and sell. However, the next month arrives and menacing commission fee is back! But you traded at least three times last month, what gives? Ah! But you used the multicurrency feature, and this means on the subsequent month you will not be eligible for commission free trading. You're back to square one. Your choice is to either pay IG the fee for every conversion in every trade or prevent this and keep the respective currency but also you must pay IG a commission.    Anyone else experience this? I'm hoping I'm completely wrong, but contacting the helpdesk seems to confirm this ...
    • IG need to provide a stock screener, live scanner for volume/price movement, pre-market data,  and rapid execution for private traders and rebate fees for trading view as they do for PRT, with traders who trade frequently. One can be ambitious and ask IG to provide a free platform like thinkorswim as Ameritrade does with current news stream  - again a free rebate for access to Benziga or similar with rebates linked to the amount of trades.  The money spent on IG TV perhaps can be spent somewhere else towards provision of some free resources to private traders/investors.  The IG tv is a serious issue - do IG really think that IG TV add any value?  Access to financial publications/sites might be a better thing.  The effort of IG to provide its own academy, advice etc is and always will probably a poor quality duplication.  Please learn/borrow from American brokers and now that their commission charges are Zero.  PRT - Can that be downloadable.  The web based form just slows everything down and very clunky and the charts are not elegant at all.  They have a community and they do develop or help develop some strategies. We do not want to lose them. But a live screener /scanner please.  I just realised that I do not even know if IF IT team even reads these comments or prioritise any of the suggestions. Please get rid of your IG TV investment, it is very annoying. And yes VWAP/anchored VWAP please on the charts. Give the private investors some of the rebates too. Is Charlotte, finally providing our redemption by talking these to the right eyes and ears! Overall, IG really is not that bad given others at least for UK investors. Perhaps just a less spread and less of that dreaded, sudden declaration that this stock is only for close and you can not open new position. I think that and the liquidity  excuse is lame unless IG is beholden to a particular market maker or IG somehow gets it in a very large position by itself.
