IG - the new robinhood and TD


Recommended Posts

Words of advice if you're a new customer/user.

IG decided to restrict my account and not allow me to place any trades, without any notice.

I funded my account via my own business account card - which was accepted via IG after verifying the card.

I have been trading with these funds for almost 6 months, to then be told that my deposit was against their terms and conditions and therefore my account must be returned back to the card account.. locking me out from trading.

So at the moment, I have zero access to my liquid cash, and zero access to my IG account.....

All without any Email/call/text/smoke signal or even homing pigeon.

Leave it to the customer to call up and then decided to inform them.

Great work Ig.

    • Yes - there was a consolidation action of 1 for 1500 of these securities : https://www.sharesmagazine.co.uk/news/market/LSE20210504170819_3963598/GraniteShares-3STS-Reverse-split-Consolidation I've been on chat and on the phone to IG - they've done the consolidation, but still not updated the correct prices, which should of course also rise by ~1,500 on a ceteris paribus basis (all things the same). At the time of writing this, TSLA has dropped a further 2.4% today, so these securities ought to have risen ~ 7.2% (3x short TSLA) on the day.  The IG person I spoke with this evening promised me he would check with the relevant team and revert. My call was very late in the day (after 6pm) so I trust that they will have this resolved in the morning. If not, I do suggest calling again. 
    • Hey all,  Unlike some other brokers IG do not trade against clients and don't benefit when our clients lose. We hedge the same way as the majority of our clients (so if 60% were long and 40% were short we would hedge those 20% long that aren't covered).  We have no benefit when traders lose. We make money from spread and commission so if anything we want out traders to win so they will continue trading with us.  Unfortunately I can't be account specific and if you believe something is wrong on your account please reach out to us as I can't assist with this.  If you have any questions on this please let me know by quoting my response.  All the best,  Charlotte 
    • Hey,  Thanks for your post.  If you held the shares through the ex div date you will receive the funds 1-2 working days after the pay date on your non-leveraged accounts.  Leverages accounts (CFD and Spread betting) have dividend adjustments meaning we adjust the price of the shares on the platform and make credits/ debits accordingly.  All the best
