Dog of a broker

published

Facts: The share platform is nothing more then a red herring to get stock traders to there CFD platform. They have next to no risk control on the stock platform yet surprising on the CFD platform which they have full control of pricing etc you get the works. They are a con and the stream they are pushing is right down the waterfall on there CFD platform. To top all this off they introduce a fee per quarter of $50 a quarter for anyone that trades less then 3 shares or CFDs. My expereince and from what I have read is you will be bitten on the CFD platform by system matic issues hint hint nudge nudge. Beware and be warned.

NEVER TRADE WITH IG!

published

They find anyway they can to grab your money, from not allowing you to place a stop loss in a trend with 'system' error to a 'spike' in the market but no other charts with the exact some product shows this spike that happens to trigger your stop loss (if you got one one) my favorite is your order disappearing on your chart and having to find it on the positions screen. ohh and the Indian call center which apparently is in Melbourne is a joke, very patronizing. Use ANY other Australian broker than these crooks!

Criminals - How is this company allowed to operate in Australia?

published

I was lured in by their $8 brokerage fees, only to be emailed later to be informed that they had now changed the terms and conditions of use and that they were now going to be charging a $50 subscription fee four times a year if you trade less than three times per quarter.

This company are basically bandits - avoid at all costs - terrible experience no customer service

published

Almost criminals - they make it extraordinarily difficult to withdraw your OWN money. They try and find every single excuse they can to block your withdrawal, its been almost a week and I cannot access my money.

Importantly you do not own the shares they are held in the custody of someone else!!!!

These people are cheap for a reason - they are basically bandits! Avoid them at all costs.

If you want a low cost option use CMC Markets they cost barely much more - but you get a whole different world of service to having the shares in your own name.

Worst Company Ever

published

I had a mere $1100.0 with them tried to withdraw, what a nightmare that was, Please do not deal with this company, if I could give them and minus 10 I would. They just have procedures that beggars belief. All I wanted to do was withdraw my funds what this company did to that is a nightmare.
Please take my advice DO NOT deal with them.

Qantas should not be partnering with IG

published

I signed up first before coming to this site to read the reviews. Luckily I have not put any money into the account. I only opened because Qantas was offering points for opening an IG account. They should know better than partnering with IG, considering they have not responded to any of these complaints.

IG IS a SCAM - Beware - Beware

published

Terrible

published

Let’s sum it up real quick and simple, cheap and nasty. These guys make it really hard to redeem your money after investments have been sold. They charge an arm and a leg to trade internationally and their customer service team is terribly trained. Save yourself some time, dont bother.
