Why can’t I trade CFD’s?


Itsbecauseofthem

Question

I’ve been practicing on the CFD market on the demo, since regular markets take far too long to drop or rise. 
 

however when I opened a ‘proper’ account it won’t let me buy or trade CFD’s. I heard you need 10k in order to trade? Fair enough. I also heard you need 500k, I find that ridiculous.

 

how do I open a CFD account, this is driving me nuts!

Hi, you don't say what account type you have opened. In your 'My IG' page there should be a blue box 'open an account' with all the different accounts available listed, choose cdf live and follow the instuctions, you need to be accepted on proof of income and what ever. I think £250 is the min add funds but will need probably twice that for margin to trade even the cheapest markets.

Hi, this is the problem, it only allows me to choose "share trading", there's nothing else, what do I do?

There are more stringent critera for opening a levearged acount as you only laying down a small portion of the full cost. If not listed in your My IG page try the web site route. (if trading in the IK check the page for difference between CFD and Spread Bet account).

Arghh! This is so frustrating! I'm based in Australia by the way, it keeps trying to get me to make a new account, and support isn't answering my emails.

The accounts are all seperate and as said there are differing critera for leveraged and non-leveraged so you do need to create a new account.

If starting with a share account you need more personal info for a leveared account but adding a share account when you already have a cfd account there is no extra docs needed.

I've just tried opening another account, they locked it. I feel like I keep hitting a wall here, I've had to make 2 new accounts now, because support will not answer emails or the phones.

ok, you should be able to open a cfd account as well as your share dealing account though it takes time because of the additional paper work you need to supply.

Maybe @CharlotteIG can pass a message on to IG Australia for you?

If she could do that that would be great.

Hey, 

When you open a CFD account sometimes additional information is needed before we can open it. From what I can see it looks like your CFD account was declined after 45 days. Could you kindly attempt to open another CFD account from the MyIG page. I will contact someone in our AUS office to reach out to you and assist you with opening one up if you can't open it from MyIG.

All the best.

Hi, I tried to open another CFD account but it isn't there for me to select. I did try creating another account, however, it was declined and it said I already had an account and suspended the account I tried to create.

Hi Charrlotte, for some reason my application keeps getting rejected. What is it exactly that I'm missing? Aren't there systems in place from preventing me from trading any further than what I can afford? Yet I'm still not allowed to trade with CFD's??

This indicates that the EUR/USD pair may be undergoing a temporary reversal against the broader uptrend.   Identified as "Impulsive as C" in mode, the analysis indicates that the current market movement exhibits characteristics of an impulsive wave within the larger corrective pattern labeled as "C." This suggests a strong and sustained directional move against the primary trend.   The "STRUCTURE" is labeled as "blue wave 3," providing clarity on the current wave count within the Elliott Wave cycle. This assists traders in understanding the ongoing impulsive movement and its alignment with the broader corrective structure labeled as "C."   Positioned as "black wave C of 2," the analysis highlights the specific phase of the corrective pattern within the larger Elliott Wave cycle. This suggests that the market is currently undergoing a corrective phase within the context of the broader countertrend move.   In the "DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER DEGREES" section, the analysis mentions "blue wave 4," indicating the anticipated direction for the subsequent higher-degree wave within the corrective pattern. This suggests that the market may experience a temporary pullback following the completion of the current impulsive wave.   The "DETAILS" section notes that "blue wave 2 looking completed at 1.09862. Now blue wave 3 of C is in play." This suggests that the previous corrective wave has likely concluded, and the market is now in the third wave of the current impulsive movement. Traders may monitor this wave for potential trading opportunities or trend continuation.
