I've just managed to get through to the charts and technical side of IG on the phone.
A woman told me they're very sorry they're 'updating the platform' , to which I said, I didn't receive any notification there was going to be a platform update and interruption to my trading?
She told me, I can still trade however the timeframe might reset . I assured her this isn't the case and i'm unable to keep it in any selected time frame or keep indicators on the chart without it reseting in a minute or so.
I was told this would be resolved within one hour. I then mentioned i'm currently in a forum on the IG community with other clients also dealing with the same issue, and this forum was already an hour old.
She more or less just apologised.
Honestly it really just feels like they're messing with the platform whenever it gets crazy. Why would they chose to preform an update at US open on a crazy volatile day?
Sounds like a bad excuse or she just didn't know what to say, either way, as a client, I feel like I'm being made to sit out on a profitable day and it sucks!
Sort it out IG!!!!
