Unable to trade US shares and unable to ask for help


OwenArnoldi

Question

I'm having trouble trading US shares on IG in Australia as in my settings under 'trading US shares' my status is: 'Your form is not valid. You can't trade on US stocks.' How do I even complete a form if not online?

Additionally I can find nowhere on this app to ask for help. There is no email address for me to ask such a simple question. The twitter account intended to answer client issues has ignored me for days now. I made a similar post on the ig community forum and am STILL waiting for a moderator to approve my first post, even though it has now been 4+ days and I'm still left unaided. It should not be this difficult to receive help for such a small thing?

Hi, for contact addresses go to Help (top banner on welcome page) and look for the blue Contact Us button on the linked page.

You should be able to see the W-8BEN forms in your My IG > Settings, or see this page.

As I said, if I go to My IG > Settings it doesn't offer me any form and it only says the following (see attached). Therefore the private clients subheading of your link is not applicable. What is a joint account holder and does filling out that digital form apply to me? I think not though.

what would normally appear is a list of questions to ascertain which of the half dozen forms you would need to fill out, there is a pdf file of each of the forms in the link.

as to your personal situation if you need to email IG the address for your country is listed in the Help > contact us page.

    • 07 February 2023 Spot Gold The price of gold has extended its pullback from overbought territory over the last week and has found some near-term support at the 50-day simple moving average (50MA) (green line). Our preference remains to look for long entry on a bullish price reversal. A bullish reversal might be considered if we can see price closing above the 1875 level, provided that the 50MA is not broken with a price close below. Should the 50MA level be broken and the price reversal not confirm, 1820 becomes the next downside support target from the move. In this scenario we not looking to short gold but would rather be looking for a bullish price reversal closer to this level for long entry once again. Should either of these scenarios manifest we will update our guidance accordingly with resistance targets and stop loss considerations. Source: IG charts       Brent Crude Oil The bearish reversal off the 8770-level guided in our previous note has yielded a significant decline, although fallen short of the 7760-support target. The price now looks to be rebounding from oversold territory. Traders who have been short might consider this an indication to exit their trades. The longer-term trend bias is still considered down and should a bearish price pattern emerge before this level, new short entries might be considered. In this scenario a close above the 8770 level might be used as a stop loss consideration, while targeting a move back towards the support low at 7760 once again. Only on a move / close above the 8770 level would the longer-term trend bias be reassessed, and long trades reconsidered Source: IG charts         Our weekly technical report is compiled by in-house senior market analyst, Shaun Murison.
