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.

    • No real movement yesterday, attempted to go lower but was bought back up, attempted to break higher on the US close but sold back down overnight. Fed rate decision today 7pm and presser 7:30 so traders likely to be cautious til then
    • Overnight Indices down Bonds up, USD flat Gold up. H4 Chart US 30y Treasury note up slightly this week after drifting down for the 2 weeks prior. UK and EU CPI data but it's all about the Fed today, 7pm, presser at 7:30.. Check out Dailyfx's summary on how interest rate cuts affect the different markets from the link below. https://www.dailyfx.com/forex/fundamental/article/special_report/2019/09/17/how-gold-oil-stocks-usd-perform-after-fomc-rate-cuts-start.html
    • I have a new account with IG, and I want to trade in stocks using DMA facility, Is there any minimum deposit I need to make into my account, so that i can use this facility? Or i just need sufficient balance so that my trade get filled?
