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.

    • Everyone, it seems accepts the result of the recent  US elections, except the President and half of the GOP.  Convinced of his own meritless delusions of fraud and other voting chicanery, he now pursues a policy of obfuscation, denial of service and general spite while mad dog Giuliani and even madder Sidney Powell pursue laughable cases in various courts in the vainglorious expectation that 6 million perfectly legal votes will somehow be annulled/ cancelled and cease to  exist. This is not to be, though the only realists in the GOP are keeping their own counsel on the subject, thereby enabling the Presidents' persistent delusions. That's the problem when you believe your own propaganda, it is easy to become confused with reality. Apart from hiding rotten fish behind the radiators of the White house and carving his name on the Resolute desk, soon to be ex president Trump is doing his best to make the transition for "sleepy" Joe as difficult as he can. This includes a tacit refusal to provide more stimulus.  He has instructed Steve Munchkin to end funding for various emergency programs to the tune of $438 billion., thereby hampering the incoming Treasury secretary before he/she even walks through the door. This has rightly upset Jerome Powell who has the interest of the US economy as his overarching priority. Unfortunately, the President is unmoved by the needs of the American public as he feels they have betrayed him.  Why reward treachery? Trump is known for his heartless ardour when crushing those he deems as unworthy, which in this case is the American people as a whole, overcome as he is with nihilistic zeal.  Playing golf while ignoring a health crisis , at the same time as full denial in the face of outright defeat, does not an effective president make. Indeed, might I venture his very legacy as president and future GOP kingmaker hang very much in the balance, indeed may have been irretrievably  lost. Like Trump, lost with nowhere to go. Though he will surely be welcomed in Turkey, Russia, not to mention North Korea.  The markets really want to break higher and gap up to new ATH's but Trumps intransigence, denial (of Covid and the election results) and general spite ( no new stimulus)are causing a state of intermarket bearish divergence, with the SP and Nasdaq refusing to break into new ATHs(all time highs).  I guess we will have to wait until he is forced out come 20th Jan. 
    • Good article (new) on strategy planning and testing from Steve Burns. https://www.newtraderu.com/2020/10/25/how-to-create-backtest-and-optimize-a-trading-strategy/ "A trading strategy is the process used to enter and exit positions in a market based on quantified signals on when to buy and sell. A trading strategy will have trading plan to express a methodology that defines a trader’s return goals, risk tolerance, and time frame. A successful strategy should have an edge expressed in how trades are entered and managed to maximize gains and minimize losses."
