IG platform is just plain bad


Guest Alan Oliver

Question

Guest Alan Oliver

IG have responded to a request regarding the unsatisfactory operations of their web trader platforms.

The web platform has known issues, i.e. it does not show the correct prices of the underlying market as the market prices change. If you are a trader who places a trade based on the ticket price, or the bar/candle chart, or the horizontal fill lines, be aware!! I have sent graphic shots of three different entry prices on the same chart at the same time depending on whether you are looking at the ticket, the bar or the entry order lines.

The response from IG is copied below:

Thanks for your email. There is already an investigation for the problem where sometimes the bid/ask price will fall outside of what is displayed on the charts, the reference number for it is INC0337629. It is a display problem which does not affect the execution of the trade, it also only seems to happen on the web platform so if you are unsure of the chart price then you can compare it to the chart price on the mobile app.

What is so surprising is that someone in a support role is so ignorant of trading. Any trader who manually enters a position or manages stops manually is at a distinct disadvantage with IG...of course your trade is affected if the price on the chart/bar is 6708 and you get filled at 6710 (when the spread is 1 point)..but of course you should know to have your phone app running at the same time to make sure your web price is at the real price !! Really, seriously?

My suggestion: Dont trade with IG. They have shown here they know they have an issue but are happy not to oblige their clients with refunds when their platform fills at wrong prices. 

You have been warned....
