Very Bad start!



Opened an account last week. Went to deposit funds today in order to trade - now tried no less than 5 times to deposit - each time "unexpected error" appears making it impossible to lodge funds. Been on hold with the helpline for 45 mins (no response) and the live chat (ditto). Extremely unimpressed!! Anyone else having problems today???

Does IG actually have a customer support function, or is it just a "keep them holding on the end of a phone for eternity service"??? Now been on the helpline since 8am this morning. The most  dreadful customer service I have ever had the misfortune to encounter.

Hi there, I have been with IG for exactly 10 years.

I actually find there services to be very good. You have to bear in mind that during extremely volatile times, you can't expect the same level of customer service. It's like trying to identify empty ICU beds when millions are infected by the Covid19 at the same time. No company, regardless of domain, has that kind of capacity, unless, of course, your issue can be resolved through a chatbot.

I experienced the same kind of login issues as you did, but having experienced the 08 market crash, I know how the same very problem is experienced by literally all other CFD providers. So this is not an isolated event. 

I would be happy to hear from you where you find the service to be better than that of IG. A genuine question.

    • 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.
