All charts frozen

Question

Is anyone else having the same problem. All my charts have frozen and they are all stating "market is not currently open to trade"  just above the Place Deal button

Looks like a transfer for me to go  to Hargreaves and Lansdown   is  on the books. My SIPP is with hargeaves and they seem pretty good, its just a shame their charges are higher than IG.

It's a major outage! I've tried contacting them to close a position on CL but even their phones aren't working!

I needed something like this to come along and force me to stop losing all my money on SB.  :)

Although, I've got a few more heavy losses coming once the system is back up :D

My charts were also frozen. Closed platform and tried to re-enter site but was unable to do so. In the Dark!

Yes, kept happening to me ever and over. Very frustrating. I thought the firm had gone bust or something. Couldn't get hold of RM either for a long while. There should be a record message or something to reassure clients as much as possible. Very worrying when you are blind to your positions and there's nothing you can do.

They probably got overloaded.  Lots of angry/anxious people on the phone.  Who would want to have to deal with that?

Very frustrating. Just when the market is really moving and there's a change to grab some money back, the site shuts down. Shame.

Frozen Charts or 'Unavailable to Open' etc.  is almost a daily occurrence for me.  I thought it was typical of Spread Betting where the most active stocks are closed because of Volatility.  They usually become available after the market has been open for an hour, but by then I've missed any breakout potential.

I knew I couldn't be the only one.  This must be happening more often that anyone is willing to admit.

 I even posted about a week ago that i searched the entire LSE for any stock on the move above 5%.  Of the hundreds or thousands in the list,  I managed about 10 that I could potentially trade on.  Less than half of them able to Short.  The rest had spreads so large I'd need to own a bank to trade them.

Seems they're not accepting any new SB clients at the moment.
