Well, I used their demo trading service for several months! Basically, in my demo I used more than 17 trading brokers for judging their live trading activities! In addition I have an interesting experience, many brokers increase their trading spread during high impact news in their live account but not in demo!

The main problem of IC market is, they freeze the trading chart during high voltage news session; worst experience on news trading!

That doesn't just happen on ICMarkets, infact also a few other brokers that i used before in AUS.

But prefers not to name them.

one of the issues of these retail brokers is they have too many clients on a single Server. So changing server doesn't really help because there are so many orders going through. And because they probably are not a STP A Book broker, they have internal B book plus C Book for hedging and throwing out, this caused massive delay especially during the high volatile period. Thus explained, why orders may not be filled as well as heavy slippage. The connection is already having a bad time plus other attributions like Your own VPS or computer and so on.

So it's very common to experience server going down, freezing etc.

If you use the ECN account then nothing freezes, you just get a slightly larger spread

ICmarkets is POS. Yesterday it froze for about 1 hour, while I was in a nice scalp! I would suggest moving to pepperstone! :)


Was it an attack, or a technical failure?


Same experience here! No, there was no technical failure! I see, they make it intentionally!
