Hi all.

Using a demo account with MT4 and been backtesting for a while.
had pretty good success but just lately I've had problems putting trades on.
Many come back unsuccesful stating re-quotes.
I thought IG didn't do re-quotes.
Is there a problem or has something changed?
Also having no success on the helpline.
Sometimes waiting for 30 minutes with no answer and just having to give up.

Having the exact same issue constant **** requotes

Was able to pratice trades up until the begining of the week

Not sure if this is due to the demo server or is perhaps the same for live accounts

I thought I am the only one having this problem. I am trading a live account and I've had this issue for quite some time now. It is EXTREMELY annoying. Sometimes I have to accept the requote for 30, 40, 50 times until the trade is finally opened. By the time the trade is opened, price has often moved significantly which means lost pips. Even worse is that the same issue occurs when closing a trade. Today I had a trade and was already three digits in profit. When I wanted to close the trade IG would not let me. I pushed the close button again and again and got approximately 10 requote or similar error messages. When IG finally allowed me to close the trade, I was back to a single digit profit. I feel conned, extremely annoyed and disappointed. 

When I contacted IG customer service a week ago, they said that they were having technical difficulties. This was on March 14 2020.  Now it is March 23 and I am still having issues. Disappointing. 

I do have another live account with a different broker and have never had any issues like that with them. They let me open and close my trades whenever I want without any incidents.

On a different note, I also noticed that price and price movement shown on my IG MT4 CFD account  sometimes significantly deviates from other sources such like tradingview.com. I have no clue why that is but hope to find out soon. 

If anyone has an idea on this topic, this would be highly appreciated.

    • 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.
