I don't have any US stocks availbale for trading on my CFD account only Australian and UK, wondering if you can tell me how to activate for US CFD share trading.


Hi @EPHTrader

Thank you for reaching out. You need to sign the relevant tax form if you want to trade US shares or US incorporated shares outside the USA on leveraged account (CFD) account. If the form is not signed, you would be charged $50 on your account. You can find this form by opening My IG via desktop, selecting 'Settings' and then 'Trading US stocks W8-BEN form'. Screenshot attached as reference. All the best, OfentseIG

    • This is the E1 contract from an IG France account. All the best, KoketsoIG
    • Dear @cate, We're sorry to hear you didn't like the new platform. The old platform is being decommissioned, so we recommend using the new one. You can find the same markets by using the search function. For example, when I typed 'crude oil' on both platforms. To select the desired contract on the new platform, simply click on the market you want and then choose from the dropdown menu. The E1 contract is only available for Europe accounts, not UK accounts on both platforms. Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • Hi, I've been holding onto the old platform as long as I could, because I really don't like the new one,  but now it's being decommissioned I'm trying to use the new one finally. ☹️  On the old platform I had a choice of WTI either as a 1 euro or a £1 contract, and the same for Gold. But when I search on the new platform all I get is the  £1 contract as well as an absolute ton of ETFs. It doesn't even say it's the £1 version, it just calls itself "spot gold" which is a bit confusing because it looks as though you might be buying a full lot, not just a mini contract. Can anyone tell me how to find the 1 euro contracts, or are they just not available on the new platform? Many thanks, Cate
