Hi there - new to the IG platform.

I put an order in over the weekend for a US stock. The price was lower today (pre-market) so have cancelled the order and set it up again against the lower price. But when I try to confirm this newer order, it states "Order Rejected"... ?

There are sufficient funds in my account for this.

I Googled this and found some people have had to submit an online W-8BEN, but I also can't see where I might get this done.

Has anyone successfully been able to achieve the above, please, or know what I'm doing wrong?

As a quick follow up... I found the W-8BEN form reg within Dashboard > Settings. - it all looks valid, but I'm still getting the Order Rejected message...

Hi @DavidC,

Typically, this error occurs when you opt for the expiry option of Day/Daily. To resolve this issue, please select the expiry option as Good till cancel (GTC). If you continue to encounter the same problem, kindly email us at helpdesk.uk@ig.com using your registered email address. We will investigate your account, determine the cause, and assist in resolving the issue.

All the best,

    • It has to be honest, especially my humble self & I think the price trend of BTC is gonna be promising which could prolly make me a millionaire, having invested in it.
    • OMNI could be the next big gem in the crypto market & I'm not gonna let it slide through my finger to hold long-term for a good ROI
    • Interoperability: Different blockchain networks follow distinct protocols and rules, making it challenging for them to communicate and share data/assets effortlessly. This creates isolated ecosystems that struggle to interact smoothly. For instance, if a blockchain supply chain system needs to exchange information with a finance blockchain to process payments, the lack of interoperability complicates the process significantly. Scalability: Scalability refers to a blockchain's ability to handle increasing numbers of users and transactions without performance degradation. Many popular blockchains, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, face scalability challenges. They require every node to validate each transaction, limiting their transaction processing capacity. As more users join or transaction volumes rise, the network becomes congested, leading to slower speeds and higher fees. This scalability issue hinders blockchain's use for high-traffic applications like global payment systems or decentralized apps (DApps). To address these challenges, researchers are working on solutions such as: For interoperability - developing standard protocols or "bridges" that enable seamless communication between different blockchains. Examples include Polkadot, Cosmos, and Nervos. For scalability - approaches like sharding (dividing the blockchain into smaller pieces to process transactions in parallel), off-chain scaling (conducting some transactions off the main chain), and others. The Nervos Network, a Layer 1 and 2 blockchain, aims to tackle interoperability and scalability issues using its Proof-of-Work consensus and tools like the Universal Passport for creating "Universal Applications" that can function across different chains. Overcoming these hurdles is crucial for mainstream blockchain adoption, enabling smooth integration with existing systems, high transaction volumes, and interconnected decentralized applications across multiple blockchain networks.
