Creating a US options account


alpen

Question

If I am logged in to my IG spread betting account on a browser and go to the My IG dashboard there is a large 'IG Tastytrade' button top right  inviting me to 'Add an Account' . If I click in this area it takes me right back to the IG dashboard. On the android app in the 'add account' area it says 'No accounts to display'. Other users on this forum have stated they are able to add an account on both the app and browser but it is not working for me.

In an email from IG I was invited to 'Create an options account'. Clicking this link takes me to the 'Sign up for a live trading account with IG and start trading' new customer page and unsurprisingly I can't create a new account as I am already an IG customer.

Is anyone else having this issue (existing customer unable to create Tastytrade US options and futures account under their current IG customer Id)?

Can someone at IG look into this?

Dear @alpen,

Thank you for your post.

You should be able to add a US options account from 'add an account' on your dashboard. Can you please confirm if you are also experiencing the same issue when using web trading platform?

Thanks,

Hello @KoketsoIG

Thanks for your response. I am experiencing the same issue on both the android app and the web trading platform (browser).

On the browser if I 'add an account' from the IG dashboard it takes me right back to the dashboard. The link expands to: https://www.ig.com/myig/goto/add_accounts?productCode=TASTYOPT but that page is not displayed, it immediately automatically redirects to https://www.ig.com/uk/myig/dashboard .

On the android app if I go to:
Account / Manage Accounts / Add an account
it just displays 'No accounts to display'

Hi @KoketsoIG

This occurs on different browsers (chrome & edge) on different devices (chromebook and windows 10 and windows 11). I have cleared all cookies and data and the same thing happens. I have also tried under 'incognito' mode (which uses totally fresh cookies etc) and the same thing happens. Also, the fact that I also can't create an account when logged in on my android app would indicate there is something wrong at the account level which needs looking at by IG. There is absolutely nothing I can do to get this working.

This has now been solved. I contacted IG via whatsapp and besides the above I mentioned that there was an old disabled spread betting account that was associated with my id - I suspected this might be causing the problem. They removed this account completely and voila! - now all is ok.

    • Man, WazirX getting hacked is scary stuff. Remember how I kept ignoring the warning signs with Hotbit? Lost my whole portfolio when they just dipped out of crypto altogether. Nightmare!   So now I'm all about finding exchanges that are super regulated, haven't been hacked ever, and actually have this thing called Proof of Reserve, like a safety net for your coins.   Been using Bitget for a while myself. They list cool new projects before pretty much everyone else, which is awesome. But the real kicker? No hacks, ever! Plus, they keep a crazy high reserve ratio, like 200% - way more than anyone else, and they even do monthly reports to show everything's on the up and up. Super transparent.   This crypto world is wild, so gotta play it safe, you know? Just sharing what works for me!
    • Cocoa Elliott Wave Technical Analysis Function - Counter-trend Mode - Corrective Structure - Emerging Zigzag Position - Navy blue wave ‘c’ Direction - Navy blue wave ‘c’ is still in play Details -  Prices breached 8626 to confirm the progress of wave c (circled). Further sell-off is expected toward 5,000. Wave (ii) appears to be resisted below 9,000. Thus, wave (iii) downside is favored. The current movements in the cocoa market illustrate a clear downward trend. Cocoa is approaching the lows seen in May 2024, continuing its fall from the record high reached on April 19, 2024, at 11,722. Since that peak, the commodity has dropped by 30%. This downtrend is anticipated to continue, potentially bringing prices down to the 5,000 mark in the upcoming weeks.   Daily Chart Analysis A close analysis of the daily chart shows that cocoa completed a significant bullish impulse wave cycle starting in September 2022, when prices were around 2,000. By April 2024, this impulse wave had increased prices by over 430%, reaching the all-time high. According to Elliott Wave theory, impulse waves are usually followed by a three-wave corrective structure. The current decline from the all-time high is thus seen as a corrective phase, expected to develop in an a-b-c wave pattern.   In this scenario, waves a and b (circled) have already finished, and the price is currently in wave c. Projections suggest that wave c will likely extend to 5,000 or lower before the bullish trend potentially resumes. This expected decline is consistent with the typical behavior of corrective waves following an impulsive move.     H4 Chart Analysis The H4 chart offers a closer view of the sub-waves within this decline, showing a potential 5-3-5 corrective structure. In this structure, wave c is currently in its 2nd sub-wave, wave (ii), which seems to have completed below the 9,000 mark. The price is expected to break below the 7,000 level to continue its decline towards the 5,000 target. However, any further extension higher for wave (ii) should be limited below the 10,323 high, preserving the integrity of the corrective pattern.     Summary In summary, the Elliott Wave analysis indicates that cocoa is in the midst of a substantial corrective phase following its all-time high in April 2024. The key levels to monitor include the 9,000 mark, which wave (ii) has already dropped below, and the 7,000 level, which could indicate the continuation of the decline. The ultimate target for wave c is projected around the 5,000 mark, aligning with the typical behavior of corrective waves. This analysis highlights the importance of closely observing wave structures and key price levels to predict future movements in the cocoa market, offering valuable insights for both short-term and long-term trading strategies.
