Some Platform Connectivity Issues



A number of our Australian clients are experiencing connectivity issues with our platform. It appears to be affecting clients who are using the Telstra network. This is something that we are aware of and our technical team is investigating with Telstra.


If you are experiencing issues with the platform, accessing our platform through a different network may resolve the issue. If you need to manage any positions please feel free to contact our dealing line and we will be happy to assist over the phone.

Hi there,


Unfortunately the issue is still ongoing. We will be posting updates here and on Twitter (@IGClientHelp) as they come.


We recommend that any clients affected also contact Telstra Customer Service so that they are aware of the number of people impacted. It would be best to let them know that you are having connectivity issues with streaming/accessing data from ig.com and that IG have confirmed that clients on other networks have not had any issues. Furthermore this issue has started from around 4:30pm Melbourne/Sydney time on the 24th.


We hope for this to be resolved soon. If you have positions which you need to manage and are unable to connect to our platform please feel free to contact our helpdesk line in order to trade over the phone.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
