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.

    • Since the beginning of 2024, memecoin and AI projects have taken the crypto space by storm. Many memecoins have seen incredible adoption, with their market caps surging exponentially over the past few months. Notable examples include WIF, PEPE, and BOME, among others. Traders have shifted their focus to memecoins, drawn by their remarkable profit potential, surpassing even that of traditional BTC and altcoins. While trading memecoins can be highly lucrative, it is crucial to acknowledge the associated risks and conduct thorough research (DYOR). Some memecoins, like CAF and HMTT, have seen significant declines, resulting in substantial losses for traders. Identifying the right memecoin and the optimal time to trade is essential. As a trader always on the lookout for promising tokens, I recently discovered a memecoin with substantial potential: $LAIKA. Unlike others driven purely by social media hype, $LAIKA offers real utility. Its features include a mobile game, Laikaverse, LAIKA wallet, and DeFi (NFT staking), all contributing to its unique value proposition. Since its listing on Bitget a few hours ago, $LAIKA's price trend has been bullish. Several upcoming events provide traders with opportunities to enhance their holdings. I believe $LAIKA has the potential to emulate the success of $****, $WIF, or $DOG, but it's imperative to conduct your own research and avoid fear of missing out (FOMO). Personally, I see $LAIKA as a promising investment and would love to hear the opinions of other memecoin enthusiasts on this token.
    • Iinteresting, I've been watching the memecoin space for a while, and DOGE's success is hard to replicate. But a fast-growing project with a team that has some clout, especially with the Dogecoin Wallet founder on board, piques my interest. Right now, I'm actually busy exploring the treasure trove event on Bitget. The reward pool sounds pretty enticing, and with everything going on in the market, some extra crypto wouldn't hurt haha. I'll have to check out $JUNGLE more closely after I finish up with this event. Launching on Bitget is a good sign, and if they can truly capture that "sincerity and bravery" spirit, it could be something special
    • Awesome news for us Bitget users, especially those of us who already love the Bitget Wallet. I've been using it for a while now, and having everything from swapping to NFTs in one place is super convenient. Finally having a BWB token for the Bitget Wallet makes perfect sense. I'm excited to see how it fuels the growth of the whole ecosystem
