Hey Zero,

 

I'm sorry to hear that you feel our service hasn't met the high standard we set for ourselves. Don't feel you're taking liberties with the Community, it's a place for honest and open debate and I know  has just moved the post to ensure the Trade of the Month thread remains on topic. 

 

If you do feel your issue hasn't been dealt with correctly or fairly, do let our helpdesk know in writing and they can take another look.

 

Cheers,

Dan

Thanks  Dan,

 

While I have moved on, it is probably a better time to make contact with the help desk now things are "calmer", so thanks for the suggestion.

I believe they local lads were trying, but maybe just don't get it.  For the whole thing (the issue and the response) it seemed like that anyway.  If I was to put anything in writing it would be more-so as "feedback" and not a complaint, so that might be useful to HQ. 

Anyway, appreciate your encouragent and high standards here too.  Cheers.

About 10mins ago got a call from "my" broker (IG of course) letting me know there are some dividends coming out of IG's ASX-index this afternoon (13.5 pts).  Just in case that would affect anything I might be doing.

 

While I can't say for sure whether it will, regardless, that service is gold !   Personalised, thoughtful (I trade often around then with binaries) and very helpful. 

I am most impressed.

Another extremely high level of service from IG again this arvo.  A small glitch in the matrix perhaps - something odd happened and it could have been dividend related.  Anyway, my broker offered to honour a rejected trade without my even asking (I was on the phone to him wondering about the glitch - which seemed to fix itself in minutes).  Brilliant. 

 

Really impressed!  Thanks.

Hey ,

 

I've moved your post here, as I feel it’s a bit more appropriate to this board and not relevant to the trade of the month competition.

 

I appreciate your frustration with the situation that happened on your account recently, and understand that you’ve already discussed this with several of our staff directly. If our Trading Services department haven’t been able to provide a satisfactory resolution to you then we do have a formal process that you can choose to pursue in order to escalate the issue further. Full details of this can be found at the following link:

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

 

Cheers,

 

Luke

Thanks for your post Luke and for taking my "issue" to heart.

 

I guess it would be nice to get other points of view on what happened so as to give me a different perspective, and hope I am not being unrealistic in my expectations.  Yet out of respect for IG and for my broker here in Aus. I'll keep this to private discussions - yet as you (hopefully) know and others on the forum - I am a big supporter of IG.  So my post yesterday gives you some idea of my feeling. 

 

I put it in trade of the month as the trade connected to my issue was on my mind as a good trade pre-and post the drama.  Sorry if I was taking liberty of the forum. 

 

Thanks again, cheers.

To add some context - IG have always been excellent in their service - and Luke's response to my post and in general this forum gives an indication how strongly IG value their clients and their reputation of having a high level of service.

 

However, if I can suggest an important point to consider: My issue is coming from a trader's perspective and this may be lost or forgotten from the "other side" (ie. dealing desk: it is a little annoying that the brokers have to be a buffer between frustrated clients and a mysterious and almost beyond reproach dealing desk.).  As a trader, my issue warranted the response I made yesterday (obviously too after a seriously heated day of trading) - and I still can't accept IG's position or answer rationally, even though I have accepted it.

 

But - as a trader I live off the markets.  I wear all my mistakes, and a lot of the time random weird events outside my control that cost me (internet failure for example).  As well, I pay my broker before I get paid.  Fine - I am happy doing this - yet when contacting a dealing desk, who are taking little if no risk, get paid at the end of the week regardless (how much I don't know but I am assuming a lot), and seem to have an out for any "mistake" they make with reasons that are often unhelpful or just don't make sense - it doesn't help.  It is not necessarily the money - I can make that back.  But it is a trading psychology and a broker-client relationship that is more important and maybe unrealised unless you actually trade.  I am depending/relying on and trusting you/IG - not fighting against you.  

 

So if anything, or if I can make a suggestion, it would be perhaps helpful for IG to consider this.  Maybe get all your brokers or dealers to earn their salary for a month by trading?   That would be interesting and could only be useful to them?

 

But thanks again Luke/IG.

Zero I obviously don't know the context of your issue.

I just want to mention that I have had issues resolved in a satisfactory manner however it did take some time.

Rather than argue with the dealers I found management were willing to get invoved and this is where a compromise was reached.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Cheers,

 

JB.

  Thanks mate.  I should have done what you suggested but I guess I am doing it here.  I don't have time for this and guess I expect to be treated differently.

At the end of the day my relationship with IG has been negatively impacted, despite me trying to de-escalate it and just get it out of the way.  I still don't feel the dealing desk appreciates this. 

I am not going to be vindictive, but it has had an impact that will last.

    • 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.
