Closing account


Mustang1965

Question

I have a spread betting account worth a very small amount - approx £60.

£48 (approx) of this is tied up in a position that is not tradable as the company is suspended. 

I would like to close the account however cannot so so with this open position. However obviously cannot close the position.

I am happy to forfeit the small amount of money that is “invested” in this position, along with the £12 odd that is in my account. I just want to close my account - not had a bad experience just had a change of circs and am looking to simplify things.

Is it possible to have to the position “deleted” or do I literally have to wait until when (if?) the company is re listed on the stock market?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi, Mustang, it's disappointing that you have had no reply to this.

You need to call in to have the position closed.  I too have had this happen a few times and have one currently on my books that has been removed.  I am hoping it will return with a vengeance however. :D

Hi @Mustang1965,

You can find information on delisted or suspended stocks here:
https://www.ig.com/uk/help-and-support/spread-betting-and-cfds/market-details/what-happens-if-the-stock-i-am-trading-delists

If you wish to close the position you will need to call in and speak to a dealer to close it manually.

Technically they only able to close the position once it is deemed worthless.

All the best - Arvin

    • As a newbie crypto trader, I dove headfirst into the world of futures trading on Bitget. Feeling overwhelmed by the charts and analysis, I discovered their copy trading platform. It was a revelation! Following the strategies of Bitget's elite traders, I learned the ropes while making real profits. Their expertise took the guesswork out of trading, allowing me to focus on understanding the market. This new Bitget Futures Elite Trader Selection Program is fantastic news. It incentivizes these top traders, giving them greater exposure, while also helping new users like myself identify proven performers. It's a win-win for everyone, and a huge step forward in making futures trading more accessible and successful for beginners. Thanks Bitget!    
    • Ontology is a high-performance, open-source blockchain that aims to revolutionize the way we approach digital identities, data sharing, and trust in the digital realm. One of the standout features of Ontology is its dual-token model, which separates the roles of ONT and ONG. While ONT serves as the staking tool for nodes and governance, ONG operates as the value-anchoring utility token for on-chain applications and transactions. This innovative approach mitigates the risk of turbulent fluctuations in the native asset value, ensuring a stable and efficient ecosystem. The ONG listing on Bitget is particularly exciting for several reasons. Firstly, it aligns with Ontology's recent announcement of a $10 million fund aimed at fueling the innovation and adoption of Decentralized Identity (DID) through the ONT and ONG tokens. This initiative underscores the project's commitment to empowering, educating, and evolving its ecosystem in exciting new ways.
