We should unite to take class action for compensation. I got losses last night because IG trading Singapore platform outage. Same no responses by calling or emailing. Many traders must have suffered.

Did you get any compensation?

I am also in the same situation. I have saved the chat screenshots and till date no one has contacted me even though in the chat, the person mentioned we will be contacted to discuss about compensation. 

I am surprised this is not being picked up in the media yet. Surely there are a lot of people who lost money or reduced profits.

The British media has very little sympathy for retail 'investors'.

Are you sure you've read all the small print about best endeavours and indicative pricing ...

When dealing with the financial services industry, you'd best believe they will **** you if they think they can get away with it.  Prior to the Great Recession, they got away with murder ... do you think they've really changed?

They have, Just look at the ESMA regulations.

I have been unable to trade since the system outage last Thursday as my account balances are incorrect. Am I the only one still experiencing a problem as I don't see any recent posts to suggest it's a widespread issue. I am getting very little information from IG other than acknowledging my account is screwed. I don't have any idea when or how IG intend to sort this out and it is extremely frustrating to say the least. I am beginning to question whether or not I should ditch IG for another broker as I can't be accepting this level of service.

Saw this today: https://financefeeds.com/tech-issues-affect-ig-platforms-second-time-less-one-week/

Doesn't fill me with confidence to start trading again, I too would like to see a detailed response from IG.

Still nothing on the actual cause, must admit I didn't notice anything yesterday, was the same issue too, not being able to close positions.

    • Is this the right place to leave feedback to the tech team? to others in the community, do you know what I am talking about?
    • I have tried to clarify the US share dealing charges with a live chat operative, and they were unable to communicate in a meaningful way. I would like to confirm that, as long as you trade at least 3 times in any given month, that you will only pay charges for the first month. In other words, free US share dealing is on a rolling monthly basis provided you continue to make at least 3 trades every month. Is this correct? The operative was saying that even if you trade at least 3 times every month, that only every alternate month would allow free commission. She also said this was clearly stated on the fees page, which is most definitely not the case. In addition, are the quarterly fees definitely waived if you place these 3 trades within a quarter? Thanks
