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.

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.

    • Some excuse is needed for a pullback ...
    • The spike down in indices in the last hour was the same ol' trade war news, China stating they are less optimistic than the US and feel they have been mislead by recent talks where they felt they had agreement over a rollback of tariffs that the US now say is not the case. After 18 months of this you should be use to it by now. 
    • Dax, Nikkei and FTSE100 remain below recent (past 2 weeks) turning points and we have seen an interesting recent bearish candle in play on US large caps, a potential spike and retrace back down, which could signal rally exhaustion.  In the case of the Dow and Nasdaq this occurred with an overshoot of the 4H chart rally channel and in the case of the Nasdaq also the Daily and Monthly long term resistance trend lines (overshoot and quick retrace being a particular signal of an exhaustion phase).  In the case of the SP500 this has occurred with a hit right on the Daily resistance trend line and rejection, so far at least.  As I have mentioned before: with volume relatively weak and seemingly in a down trend; and with COT net long positions weak and weakening (not what one would expect of a breakout rally); and with Gold/Silver rallying; and with NMD at the turn points on all markets and as USDJPY has also taken a similar bearish hit; the odds of a bearish phase are good and the risk reward is decent. I am already Short Dax and FTSE100 off the previous turns but money where my mouth is this time on SP500, as the exposure is tiny, I am Short off the hit and turn on the daily trend line with tight stops just above.
