Breaking: OANDA Experiencing Technical Issues
Brokers need a solid back up for the times when they suffer from technical problems

Just under two hours before the Brexit vote in the UK Parliament, OANDA is experiencing technical issues. Clients of the company have reached out to Finance Magnates and confirmed that they couldn’t log in to their trading accounts.

Contacting the company’s support team appears to be very difficult right now, and there is no clarity as to how severe the technical difficulties of the brokerage are. The firm’s login page in the EU displays a warning stating: “Currently experiences issues - we are investigating.”

Update: As of 06:30 PM GMT (11:30 AM ET) the company's website is functioning normally. The company still hasn't posted an update about the reason for the outage.
