Trouble buying shares


Recommended Posts

I have just sold shares from me share account and transfed the money to my isa, i am now trying to buy shares in my isa and it keeps telling me¬† You are currently restricted from opening any new positions on your account. Any help would be appreciated as i have just tried calling IG but gave up after 80 minutes of waiting ūüôɬ†

Not entirely sure, but have a couple of suggestions why you may be having an issue:

Is it a new ISA for this tax year, or one that you have with IG already? If a new one you've just set up not sure what the issue is.   If the latter I believe you need to have funded it in the previous tax year (ie 2020/2021) for you to be able to trade immediately. If your IG ISA is older than that and was not funded last tax year you will need to get IG to reactivate it.

Alternatively, although you've sold shares on your sharedealing account and can trade with unsettled funds in the same account, you may find they are classed as unsettled funds when you move them to your ISA?

 OK.  that was the issue for me, so sorry cannot help further.  Good luck.  I had a query about something last weekend and got through to someone quickly on Saturday morning. I know that doesn't help if you want to trade now or tomorrow but may be a good time to call them.

What the number you called?

    • Does anyone else know any other SB providers that you can use to trade through TV?¬† I've only so far seen CFD providers which doesn't work for me due to tax reasons (mainly the hassle of having to account for it as well as the obvious cost).
    • Is there any update on when/if there will be any integration with Tradingview???
    • The anonymity of cryptocurrency transactions can vary depending on the specific cryptocurrency you use and the methods you use. While some cryptocurrencies provide a degree of privacy and anonymity, it is important to note that achieving complete anonymity can be difficult. Most cryptocurrencies operate on a pseudonymous basis. Transactions are recorded in a public ledger, called a blockchain, using cryptographic addresses instead of personal information. However, these addresses are usually not directly linked to a real identity, unless someone voluntarily discloses this information. Some cryptocurrencies, such as Monero (XMR) and Zcash (ZEC), are specifically designed to increase privacy and anonymity. I read on https://deeplab.com/darkweb/anonymous-sudan-launches-cyberattacks-on-middle-eastern-news-outlets-expands-target-list-with-four-additional-names that some people use this anonymity as a cyber attack.
