How can you get away with advertising 24/7 trading when

1) There isn't 24/7 trading

2) Even during the hours that we can trade, the platform is liable to become unusable?

Why can't you advertise 24/5 and ensure uptime and reliability?

@dmedin,

My IG app on my iPhone seems to be working but the desktop version on my iMac is not. This is very frustrating as when I am at home then I want to use IG on my desktop as the user experience is far greater and superior than on the smartphone. That is for emergencies only!

None of my charts are loading up and the website is very slow and 'clunky'.

The iPhone app has been flaky for the last couple of hours, and the browser version not much better.

There is a status page: https://status.ig.com/ which is reporting issues with logging in, no mention of the other problems.

The status page is a load of cr@p ...

If they are sweeping this under the carpet and not acknowledging the problem then that's a huge red flag, time to look for another broker.  :(

Both the App and the Desktop are slow and unresponsive and mostly unusable. This has cost me money tonight, will I get compensation - NO.

Balance info disappears, open orders very slow to load and when you close a trade, it wont execute because the live price has moved. Usual message to call the trading desk, but phone lines don't get answered quickly so if you are active, forget about using this platform.

The performance recently has been a disgrace.

Hey, 

We'd like to apologise for the platform login issues anyone was experiencing yesterday. Although this is a rare occurrence, we're sorry if this affected your trading. 

If you were trying to close positions whilst you were experiencing the issues I would advise calling our help desk. They will be able to assist you.

It's not rare, but the blame-shifting and denial suggests that IG has a lot of internal office politics and won't invest the money and time required to fix it.  Bad sign.

Apropos:

I might be being too harsh.  I've read that many others experience problems with their brokers' online platform and that it has been common over the years on various providers.  And I myself haven't tried any other platforms to compare IG with.  So there's that.

    • & close up , until it breaks it's still support
    • The case for a Yen rally (USDJPY bear) is strengthening despite large cap USD stock indices advances, or perhaps because of them as the gas behind these stocks rallies seems rather watered down: low and declining volumes; Vix at very low (some argue complacency) levels; COT data is weak and the net positions declined (more towards the bearish side) last week; non US large caps divergent from the large caps; HK, China 50, FTSE100, Nikkei and Russell 2000 all put in bearish weekly candles last week with DAX showing a doji.  Gold and Silver rallying and the Yen rallying.  All in all I remain on the lookout for a bearish trigger on stocks, which we have not yet got, except perhaps on the FTSE100.  But on the Yen the breakout is on and currently the channel is being retested.  If the USD continues its current bearish direction and we get any stumbling in stocks then this pair will hammer down.  My lead scenario is for this pair to make it past parity and probably a good deal lower than that.
