Hi, I'm really new to IG but I have two questions.

Sorry if these seem basic but first of all I was wondering why when I type in certain stocks they don't appear? Are there only a specific amount of stocks you can access?

Second some stocks don't allow you to buy if your using leverage is their a way to disable this?

I'm using a demo account (Paper trading) so is their any differences that is causing these problems?

 

Thanks

Hi @muzzraouf

Thanks for the question

If the share you search for does not appear it would mean we do not offer it. This could be because it trades on an exchange we do not offer, or the share does not satisfy our shares desk risk criteria, or it could be one that we have not considered yet. For live account traders we do offer the option to request to have a stock added, which would then be considered against our risk criteria. 

Some stocks we do not offer on leverage, again this would be because the share is not considered appropriate for leverage by our shares desk. Unfortunately this is something you cant change. 

Thanks

Thanks for the information, just wondering if I was to request a stock how long would the process take in which you would consider it?

 

P.S I know this isn't related but for some reason despite making profit in the demo account my funds go down? Is this a bug or am I missing something obvious?

Hi muzzraouf, 

You can request a stock on the post below:

 

We will submit the request straight away to the dealing desk. If eligible it will be added roughly within 2-3 days.

All the best - Arvin

    • Recently, we have noticed the growth of Mobile mining, a lot of projects have sprung up where users earn passively through these mining platforms. Under the same breath, ICE blockchain has evolved as a new digital currency that can be mined or earned from any mobile device. The bourgeoning blockchain is solely based on a community of trust and has a decentralized governance model. The network is built with inherent scalability, such that it can scale a good number of network participants without compromising its speed or efficiency. On its most positive side, the Ice Open Network has high performance and has the innate capacity to process millions of transactions per second, heralding it as one of the fastest blockchains in the world. Through the instrument of its threads and shards, it parallelizes transactions into bits thus significantly increasing throughput and enhancing scalabilty. Apart from being highly scalable, it is an offshoot of TON blockchain that seeks to bring forth decentralized services for data privacy, user control and efficient data management. In the core spirit of Web3, Ice network has a decentralized identity service that allows users to create and manage their own digital identities with top level assurance, privacy and security. Flowing from above, the ICE network has a good number of usecases and more are in the offing as well. Consequently, platforms like Bitget have declared intent to list the native token $ICE on 28th February, with a deposit to earn event. This is a really good way for the project to garner spotlight. I’m optimistic as per its growth in the long run.    
    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
