  1. My impression was that it was very market specific, IG are only listing 2 companies for restrictions and the notifications seemed to come later than the login issues. On both days the login went down around half an hour after the US open and when you would expect a pile in if the stock was going up right from the off. As I've posted before the calling a halt to opening new positions is not new, happened all the time during the ramp up in bitcoin in 2017, there weren't any automatic accompanying login issues and IG didn't seem to give a hoot about the complaints, it was what it was.
  2. hahaha, who posted this? you're spoiling all the fun, not that anyone wants to listen of course. Broker firm Webull CEO explains actually what's happening; - The clearing firms have stopped the trading, they don't have the capital to carry on even after raising broker deposits. Brokers are totally reliant on clearing firms. - The clearing firms have raised margin for brokers using them to 100%, the brokers have to pass that onto their clients.
  3. SAGE go on the p*** take, SAGE are now warning that there could be 100,000 collateral non-covid deaths. This will be of course due to the policies SAGE themselves recommended, chiefly lockdowns and restricted access to health care to 'save the NHS'. Defies belief. They clearly realise they can't keep this farce running much longer. The numbers never added up but by now are so glaringly, obviously crooked they can't hide any longer. They should all be in jail. UK pandemic could lead to 100,000 non-Covid deaths caused by the crisis SAGE warns - Mirror Online Lies,
  4. Dear oh dear, the Dutch are protesting against perpetual lockdown, what's wrong with them, don't they want to SAVE LIVES!!!!! Meanwhile the plucky Brits are just queuing up for the next constant-covid rollout - roadside swab tests. If it saves just 1 LIFE!!!!!. .
  5. I don't see the need to fain login problems, I think the login issue was down to system overload which is bad considering they had similar issues during the covid crisis March 2020, seems to be a rush to sign up more and more clients but less concern over tech catch up issues. With regards liquidity they constantly monitor what's available and take the best prices from whoever as needed. In times of high volume multiple handles are taken up all at once, the next best price can be a long way from the last best price, if over certain slippage limits they will cancel your order and requote,
  6. The liquidity providers are all the usual suspects, big banks, pension funds and hedge funds. All has to go through clearing houses and and for a seat at that table you need to place a large deposit to cover ongoing transactions, that deposit can increase 10 fold on high volume moves that soaks up all the available liquidity. Brokers find all their clients are one way so can't net off in-house and can't hedge so they close the book once their own risk highs are hit . Saw it happen a lot during bitcoin's pulse surges during 2017.
  7. Good thread concise points covering a lot of ground. A readable Thread by @goddeketal Says 24/: History tends to repeat itself. - UnrollThread.com
  8. Hi, yes guaranteed stops will be executed at the named level on market open. Here in the UK and Europe we have negative balance protection, there are similar proposals coming for Australia soon along with the huge reduction in leverage. Until then you could choose a Limited Risk Account which has neg bal protection and all stops are guaranteed stops.
  9. 2 min vid explainer on how to promote your pandemic, from 2019 discussing H1N1. Says it all really.
  10. Interesting 20 min vid from Fox on the recent Wall St meltdown, market manipulation, little guys sticking it to the hedge funds, includes an interview with Dave Portney taking down Robinhood.
  11. Interesting, Clearly 2 aspects to the recent outages, infrastructure overload and IG's own risk management.
  12. Just to add to the above profits from cfds taxed but also loses can be written off. Spread bets started out under the old gaming and gambling regulations and so not taxed. Long may it remain so.

  14. had enough yet? ... no? - fine, carry on ... Disclose.tv @disclosetv NEW - China demonstrates how to perform an #COVID19 **** swab sample collection.

  15. Early Jan England deaths data and all causes other than covid at increasingly negative (below normal) levels due to many being rebranded as covid instead. Covid deaths 'look' to be rising but all-cause deaths roughly normal. Since summer this is a picture of misdiagnosis not pandemic.
  16. The current main driver is vaccinations now that the election is settled and no other new news. on the monthly chart price has been capped for the last 4 months and needs some special news to drive it up and over otherwise it will get tired and head back down looking for support. The vaccination rate news for EU and US is sluggish, Biden can't do anything to increase it. as usual, go with the flow but don't buy directly into resistance or sell directly into support.
  17. email them and state your case, they can see on the data record if you have been trying to close and when, plenty of people have come back on the forum and reported that though it took a few days it was sorted amicably. slippage is the result of prices not being available to the broker to pass on to you. there always has to be someone willing to sell at the price you are willing to buy.
  18. just pointing out that there are some people, like you, who turn up at every platform problem desperate to incite a 'me too' outrage, you do it every time, and each time repeating the same half truth story of how you was wronged and each time declaring you've had enough and are leaving IG for good only to resurface again the very next time, most people won't realise you've been doing it for years. Seriously, there is something wrong with you.
  19. Shame we had to wait till the new expensive vaccines were bought and paid for to find this out 🤔 Dr. Simone Gold @drsimonegold 8h Facebook just announced it “made a mistake” when it censored studies showing HCQ saves lives. Censorship is never “a mistake” Tech executives repeatedly made a calculated decision, month after month, silencing physicians worldwide. Censorship kills.
  20. sure, no I don't work for IG, major disruptions probably only occur on average once a year, smaller disruptions more frequently. 2 types: IG's problem with login or platform or problems outside IG's scope, exchange shutdown, stock limit up/down, unborrowable/unlongable. 2 types of complaint: I lost money on an open trade because of login or platform failure. I lost money because I couldn't place a trade that would have made me thousands. There have been plenty of reply's on the forum over the years that IG has reimbursed losses for IG fault problems but no broker will pay out fo
  21. Robinhood might be bust. Robinhood’s “position-closing only” list for tomorrow. Robinhood Is Said to Draw on Bank Credit Lines Amid Tumult - BBG https://t.co/0jHAXH4AX3 Stephanie Ruhle @SRuhle . @RobinhoodApp CEO on @CNN It’s pretty clear, THEY DID NOT HAVE THE CAP TO MEET THE HIGHER CAP REQUIREMENTS WHEN FLOWS BLEW UP. They could not comply with the requirements. The pressure is ON, but I don’t know how they can open up these stocks tomorrow & avoid this again
