This is a complex instrument and is currently not eligible to be traded on your account


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I am trying to buy "US Global Jets ETF" on the IG share dealing platform. However, when I get to the last step I receieve a following message. 

"This is a complex instrument and is currently not eligible to be traded on your account. Please call your normal dealing number for more information"

Does anyone know why is this happening? I have tried the help line but no one picks up the phone.

I am having the same issue. Has anyone had any luck resolving it?

I called the support number as instructed and it hung up after 45 min on hold. I have emailed customer support 3 times in 2 weeks and haven't had any response there either.

I've had the same issue with Five G ETF but being a new customer and seeing how long you remain on hold and the impossible task of getting customer support I'm none the wiser...looks like I'll be the shortest tenured customer in a couple of weeks if this is the standard of support.Will report back if i learn more.

Is IG Customer Support reserved for opening new accounts only??

I have previously invested in ARKK and ARKF (while being locked out from ARKG) but now all of the aggressive ETFs, including QQQ, are restricted from my account. What is going on??

Got this today when trying to buy into ProShares Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures ETF. 

 

Anyone actually resolved this at any point? Or know of a broker that won't pull these shenanigans with new customers?

Same problem here - I opened an account with IG to buy products that Fidelity doesn't provide.  Turns out, neither does IG - they have a slick marketing operation but cannot live up to their promises.  And they never answer the phone!  I'm guessing mine will be a very short lived account.

Guest Same problem

I traded a particular ETF in October. Twice this year have tried to buy it at a low point but now get that same error message. Any answers IG??

"Okay. This means we need to update your Mifid/appropriate score. Some ETFs are classified by the desk as complex relative to the others, which is why we have this score in place. I'm going to send you an email shortly with some questions. They're short and simple. Once you've replied back, I'll be able to make the necessary amendments to your account should you meet criteria."

    • I don't think it would be a problem trading during the weekend. You can trade whenever you want.  I learned how to do it on the cryptoinformator website. The highest income is brought by bitcoin. When looking at the value of the current 55,000 dollars, of course, everyone is thinking about investing in it. Forecasts vary, and many believe that by the end of 2021, they would have surpassed 100,000 dollars. The growth is projected to be based on the fact that real-world payment flow stock markets are still burdened by the current pandemic but is also based on the increasing acceptance of BTC as legal tender ( PayPal is bringing this option, and bitcoin is also coming to Wall Street soon).
    • I played around with it (created two plots of the smallest viable K-32 size). While I'm farming this tiny amount now I've stopped plotting until pooling is introduced - since existing plots aren't going to be compatible with pooling. The cost of wearing out SSDs is high. You're effectively buying (via SSD wear) lottery tickets (the plots) with a chance of winning a lottery (by farming). Without pooling its unlikely small players will win. The "estimated time to win" is based on current network space that will probably rise at a very quick rate reducing your chance of winning exponentially.  Unless you're farming petabytes, using the rule of large numbers to take out the lottery element, its not worth the time of smaller farmers imho. It may be worthwhile when they introduce pooling.
    • Yeah, you can trade whenever you want.
