Got a Share Trading Account - How to trade in CFDs

I have been doing share trading in my IG account. However, I wanted to try out CFDs (Options) but it seems that my current account

only is for trading in shares and not CFDs. 

I tried creating a CFD account but I couldn't see any option for it. It just gives an option to open a share trading account.

If CFD trading is a separate account, how do I open one and is there a minimum for opening a CFD account?

Hi Edmund

Thanks for reaching out, 

The option to add a CFD account should be available from the dashboard of the My IG page on the web based platform. If a CFD account is not one of the available options, it may mean that you did not satisfy the requirements for trading on a leverage account at application stage. We would usually require a certain level of wealth and trading experience before you would be considered for leverage. If there has been some time since your initial application you can email helpdesk.au@ig.com to request a paper based application form. 

All the best

    • The use of non-sterilising vaccines drives the evolution of viruses and creates new variants - this is ABC virology and an incontestable, inescapable scientific fact, known for decades. What newspaper columnists and media talking heads say cannot change this one iota.  
    • I have a long position in Germany 40 with a stop loss which was set at 845pm Friday evening at 1511 - I think that based on the weekend position Germany will open lower than my stop loss. will my stop loss be triggered at 1511 based on above, or will I incur losses based on the price the market opens on Sunday evening? 
    • Latest interview with Dr David Martin.      He has spent the last year and a half researching the years of connections that link the SARS virus, the drug companies, Fauci the NIH and the Wuhan lab.    I have posted on his work before, real eye opening stuff, uses their own paper trail to tell the whole story.   Listen to the opening where Peter Daszak  (Fauci/Wuhan lab go between) is quoted from a presentation he made in 2015. It's all going as per the plan.   Published November 24, 2021 (25 min).   Felony Crimes End Pharma Immunity: US Criminal Conspiracy Strikes Root of Covid Nightmare (rumble.com)
