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.

    • In the wake of a brewing conflict between the Nigerian government and Binance, cryptocurrency enthusiasts find themselves on edge, uncertain about the future of their digital investments. Rumors abound that Binance, along with other platforms, might be exacerbating the Naira's devaluation against the dollar, prompting the government to take a hard stance against the exchange. Despite longstanding allegations of wrongdoing, recent events have propelled the government to escalate its actions. The situation has escalated dramatically, with Binance's P2P platform disabled and a staggering $10 billion fine imposed for alleged illegal activities. This punitive measure, coupled with last year's $4.3 billion fine by the SEC, underscores the gravity of the situation. However, skepticism lingers regarding the astronomical sum demanded by the Nigerian government. While Binance has faced regulatory challenges in other jurisdictions, its resilience and market dominance have largely endured. Yet, the potential ramifications of losing access to a key crypto market like Nigeria cannot be ignored. Complicating matters further, the Nigerian House of Representatives has summoned Binance CEO Richard Teng, issuing a seven-day ultimatum for him to address allegations of terrorist financing and money laundering, among other charges. This development casts a shadow over the future prospects of Binance in the country. Amidst the uncertainty surrounding Binance's operations in Nigeria, users are scrambling to identify alternative platforms. While other centralized exchanges (CEX) remain operational within the country, the pressing question remains: which platform will emerge as the most dependable alternative should the situation worsen? https://punchng.com/reps-summon-binance-boss-over-alleged-terrorism-financing/
    • 2024 has been a good year for crypto traders with signs of a bullish market prevailing. For the first time in 3 years, we are witnessing BTC set a new ATH repeatedly. If you endured the prolonged bear market of the previous years, you deserve these gigantic green candles! In addition to BTC's incredible run, several alts have broken out nicely; Ai, memecoin, GameFi projects and so on have spiked. Most notably in the month of February is the run of CEX tokens. According to Foresight News, centralized exchange tokens boast of a widespread price spike in February, based on data from ICO Analytics. Standing tall amongst many is BGB with 62% increase, while ASD, BNB, and KCS witnessed gains of 45%, 33%, and 22% respectively. As a BGB holder myself who’s been holding since June 2023 at an average price of $0.45, it’s been an incredible journey. I’ve witnessed it smash its ATH over again, the latest coming in February when BGB set a new ATH of $1.15. Aside the juicy ROI, BGB usecases have been a flex for me, granting me access to exclusive events, like Launchpads where I’ve also managed mouth-watering gains from my participations. BNB had a remarkable run in the last bull cycle, sadly I missed out having sold mine for peanuts. If you said I’m stoked to right my wrong with BGB this time, you wouldn’t be far from the truth!  Which CEX token(s) are you keenly observing?
