Yes I have done that. Something about professional trader?

ok, you probably don't want to register as a professional trader. Something rings a bell but can't remember. let me get back to this thread, if not prompt again on Monday when there may be IG staff around.

yes, not sure, as said rings a bell but can't remember, it may be something simple like needing to do a first trade person to person via the dealing desk, will come back.

I tried to buy the UFO etf but there's something about EU or US law which says that without a published KID/KIID document as an EU citizen you cannot buy those instruments. Whether the same applies to spreadbetting those etfs am not sure...

@Arindom Did you manage to sort the US ETF issue out? I have the same problem and I have reached out to help centre, filled in the form online but still can't get US ETFs. I joined IG to invest in ETFs

Has this been sorted out? Can a UK resident buy US ETFs?

 

Hi @Farmer2 

Thanks for reaching out. US ETFs are still not available for retail clients. 

We would also like to draw your attention to the Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 (the PRIIPs) regulation states that all retail clients must be provided with a Key Information Document (KID) prior to the purchase on any security (PRIIP) within the scope of the regulation. This regulation would prevent you from buying any US or foreign denominated ETF. As this ETF is listed on the NYSE exchange, you would not be able to purchase it with IG. 
This regulation covers (inter alia):

•    Foreign Exchange (FX) Transactions 
•    Over The Counter Derivatives 
•    Exchange Traded Derivatives (including ETFs , ETCs & ETNs)


A KID must be provided to all European retail clients. UK retail clients remain subject to these rules at this time.

All the best, 

OfentseIG

    • Block Inc., Elliott Wave Technical Analysis Block Inc., (SQ:NASDAQ): Daily Chart, 31 January 23, SQ Stock Market Analysis: At this point I am considering the possibility of an ending diagonal in wave C to then retrace lower into wave (B). We have touched and found resistance off equality of C vs. A.   SQ Elliott Wave Count: Wave {v} of C. SQ Technical Indicators: 200EMA as resistance.   SQ Trading Strategy: Looking for downside in wave (B) to then start looking for shorts.   TradingLounge Analyst: Alessio Barretta Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!   Block Inc., SQ: 4-hour Chart, 31 January 23, Block Inc., Elliott Wave Technical Analysis SQ Stock Market Analysis: Looking for a sharp move down soon to confirm the count, ideally we can break the bottom of wave {iv} to have further confirmation. SQ Elliott Wave count: Wave (i) of {a}. SQ Technical Indicators: Above all averages. SQ Trading Strategy: Looking for confirmation to then build shorts.
    • Asian markets registered small losses overnight as investors turned increasingly cautious ahead of this week's crop of big events. Despite the rally in risk assets since October, sentiment remains fragile thanks to ongoing recession fears, with an elevated risk of a short-term pullback at least should the overall view gleaned from this week's events turn out to be a negative one. Both the manufacturing and non-manufacturing Chinese PMI readings moved back into expansion territory for December, reflecting the reopening of the economy and providing sentiment with some near-term support. Fears of ongoing high inflation readings have subsided thanks to the slump in gas prices and falling oil prices, with the latter hit yesterday by signs of strong Russian exports and concerns that OPEC+ will leave output levels unchanged. In earnings reports, today sees AMD, McDonald's and Exxon release earnings, while we also get German and eurozone GDP, plus US consumer confidence. The expected German inflation data has been moved back to next week due to 'technical issues'.
