  1. I had exactly the same issue two hours ago. Tried it again just now and all worked fine. Assume lots of payments going through due to ISA, start of tax year...

  2. I had a similar problem over the weekend trying to fund my ISA. Do you have another debit card attached to a different account? If so add that and deposit from that account; I had success by doing this. I also sent a faster payment from the account on which the card was problematic, and this worked OK.

  3. I have never had any issues previously via debit card. There are a few steps needed though - check below: https://www.ig.com/uk/help-and-support/deposits-and-withdrawals/deposits/how-do-i-deposit-funds-into-my-account

  4. So I start with new topic. I believe here is plenty of us affected., I was adding my comments to a topic -IG has shown it's true colours and is restricting BUYING of AMC and GME- if you want to have look on. I think my commenta are on 7th page. Please share tour thoughts here. I personally filled the complaint to IG,, Now they ignoring my calls and emails, so I contacted ombudsman already. I contacted press, wrote emails to rishi sunak office and b.johnson office, as I believe IG is commiting fraud by deliberately delisting companies and so closing our positions., I al

  5. Yet they allow you to SELL and close out your positions. What will that do to the overall market price of AMC and GME? Well obviously if we can only sell the the price will go down down, allowing these greedy hedge funds to exit their short positions without taking too much of a hit. You have 2 choices, 1. Sell your shares back to the hedges, just like they want, or 2. Hold and watch them wet the bed, eventually having to buy at the price WE SET and us little guys make some money. Also, leave IG they don't deserve your business after this blatant act of market manipulation.

  6. Example scenario: I own 30 shares of Company XYZ. The price per share of XYZ reaches $1,000,000. I place a sell limit order of 30 shares priced at $1,000,000 each for a total of $30,000,000. If it is during operational hours of the market and there is a buyer, the trade should execute and IG won't limit the transaction? There was a restriction on buying GME and AMC (there shouldn't have been) at one point so curious if the reverse can happen. Thanks in advance.

  7. I know, for a few weeks from the end of January, IG inexplicably blocked the buying of GME shares and at exactly the same time the forum was down so no one could discuss this, but can IG confirm they will not prohibit the sale of GME shares when the time comes despite there being potentially huge activity with this stock at that time. Thank you.

  8. Hi, I am trying to trade shares on GameStop and putting in Buy/Sell Limits Orders for the Day - e.g. a limit buy order for $150 and the Last Traded Price is $300 - I get the error message "Order too far from last traded price" !! But the share price is SWINGING up and down a LOT... and the price has already changed too much for you place it!! I read that there is a 20% up or down limitation across the board for all shares. I guess it's in place to stop someone adding an extra zero by mistake or something like that. BUT this is a SEVERE problem for a lot of people trading heavily o

  9. Yes this! I missed several important trades that should have happened when I'm in bed at the other side of the world. This is insane. I'm moving out of IG solely for this reason. Unfortunately it has taken a week so far to transfer my positions to another broker, and in the mean time I still can't place orders without staying awake all night watching the prices. Absolutely unnecessary. Most other brokers have "profit taker" and "loss stop" which are very basic features. So you can even set your sell price (e.g. at 10x the current price) BEFORE you even place your order to buy th

  10. Alot of short positions are due to be called in come today (Feb 1); hence why IG stopped allowing opening positions on GME but forcing long margins to meet 100% funds by 4pm UK, effectively forcing many longs to cover hence giving their boss a breather.

  11. "GME's customer support phone line had automatic music and voice informing to hold" PRECISELY!!!! :):) HOLD GME, no matter what. Even if they try to screw us on buying, they can't force us to sell! If you hold, just don't sell - it's scaremongering. I'd rather loose the couple of thousands I've invested than succumb to this bullying

  12. I agree. This needs to be done ASAP. I called over the phone and they said it was not possible to lift this restriction, which is making me quite worried to be using the platform really.

  16. also the huge loss they caused to their customers by imposing these unlawful restrictions to drive stock price down and forcing small individuals to sell at loss, in order to help these WS hedge funds

  17. I'd also like recommendations on a new broker that respects its investors and doesn't pull shenanigans on them.

  18. I agree to all the comments and also felt frustrated the platform online & App "conveniently" went offline for 3 days on the trot exactly when the US opened. We all know that Robinhood have had to reverse their restrictions/limits on deemed volatile stock so why has IG now decide to restrict retail investors - will probably get the same BS about protecting retail investors!!! I am a bit pissed off with this constant rule changes against retail investors - EC ruling/higher margins/no Crypto dealing/restricted trading/even higher margins of 100% to name a few!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 I

  19. It's pretty obvious who they are looking out for and it's not their customers. Time to shop around.

  20. Would love to hear from IG on this. If it's a clearing house issue why not restrict BOTH BUYING AND SELLING, wait for the clearing house to catch up, tap credit whatever needs to be done. But only allowing selling??? come on. A lot of people are going to lose money because of actions like this.
