Hi,

On IG the FTSE 100 spiked by 50+ points at 15:10 today, I'm interested to know if this was the market or a glitch by IG as it cost me about £400 today.

Could you check your FTSE chart and tell me if you see the spike. I've looked on google/yahoo and can't see it - but they are hardly reliable sources. Thanks.

Thank The Lord that I was taking an afternoon nap. I'm with Finspreads (CI). It happened there, too.

Would I be correct in thinking that all these firms mentioned flipped their spreads to handle the extreme volatility to prevent being caught offside (and thus possibly annoyed a few of their clients by hitting their stops) or did they honor their bets like gentlemen and fill limit orders at the requested levels?

@pietersteidlmayer - exactly. Was anyone here successfully filled short at 6670 for example?
