Struggling to deal stock and etfs - some advice please...


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

New to this site and investing in general. I want to buy into some ETF's but having a couple of issues.

The first is that I got a message after trying to buy an ETF that 'it was a complex product and that I didn't have access... does this make any sense to any one?

I am going to be investing rather than trading. Also where on the platform can you view the holdings of each ETF

I did try to buy some individual stocks the other day and each of my deals were rejected or unsuccessful. I am trying to find a simple video on here to see what I am doing wrong! 

Thank you

Hi,

So finally figured it out:

Firstly, fill in the US W-8BEN Form online to allow you to trade in US Stocks

Then call IG - there is an over the phone questionnaire which you can do which allows access to some US ETFs (not all)

You are likely a 'retail client' like I was, you can consider upgrading to a professional client if you meet the criteria - IG can email you the link when you call up

Finally, open spread beeting / CFD accounts - even if you are not planning on using them right away.

Doing all these things, seem to allow me to trade US ETFs within a Share dealing account from the UK.

 

Good Luck!

    • KO Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Daily Chart, The Coca-Cola Company, (KO) Daily Chart KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Flat POSITION: Minute wave {c} of 2.   DIRECTION: Bottom in wave {c}. DETAILS: With yesterday’s session we’ve had a spike in volume on the bull side, which could make us start thinking the correction is either completed, or soon to be. We have almost reached 1.618 {c} vs. {a}., but more importantly we have reached the base of the leading diagonal in wave 1, where many times support is found.         KO Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4Hr Chart, The Coca-Cola Company, (KO) 4Hr Chart KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Flat POSITION: Wave (v) of {c}. DIRECTION: Bottom in wave (v). DETAILS: Here on the intraday chart it’s easier to see the five wave move in wave {c} which seems to have unfolded nicely. Looking for a clear sign of a bottom in place.        As of April 18, 2024, Elliott Wave analysts closely monitor the daily and 4-hour charts of The Coca-Cola Company (Ticker: KO) to provide insightful technical forecasts. These Elliott Wave predictions play a crucial role in identifying potential trends and reversal points in the stock's price movement.     * KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart* The Elliott Wave analysis on the daily chart of Coca-Cola shows a corrective phase within a flat structure, identified as minute wave {c} of 2. This phase is categorized under a counter trend function, suggesting that the ongoing correction is approaching completion. The recent trading session marked a significant increase in volume on the bullish side, hinting at a nearing end to the correction. Technically, the price has approached the critical 1.618 Fibonacci extension of wave {c} relative to {a}, reaching a key support level at the base of the leading diagonal from wave 1—a typical zone for finding support.   * KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – 4hr Chart* On the 4-hour chart, Coca-Cola’s stock exhibits a detailed structure of the corrective phase, clearly depicting wave (v) of {c}. This finer resolution allows for a clearer visualization of the complete five-wave move within wave {c}, indicating the likelihood of a bottom formation. Analysts are keenly observing for definitive signs that confirm the bottom is firmly in place, signaling potential bullish reversals.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta   Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!    
    • I came across an interesting new meme token called EPIK that launched on the Solana blockchain earlier this month. It features a playful little duck character and has been gaining traction since its debut. In my opinion, several factors contribute to EPIK's potential. Meme coins naturally attract attention, and EPIK's unique duck character design helps it stand out. Additionally, backing from crypto influencers has fueled market interest. It seems on-chain activity is also picking up steam, with daily TV reaching millions of dollars and the number of holders approaching 10,000. With a strong community presence in both English-speaking and Chinese-speaking communities, a recent listing on Bitget potentially exposing it to a much wider audience, coupled with the potential for further price increases, I believe EPIK is a project to keep an eye on.
