Hi all, My name is Stephanie, I want my Husband to be able to use my account, when I asked IG for help on this they made it sound like I was up to no good and put stop on my account, any help would be grateful.

thanks for that, But I made an inquire with IG and was told I can't do that and they stopped my account from trading, just like that, while I was talking to them.

Have read the terms of the POA but we have to open a 2nd account to do this, what is the point of a 2nd account when we wish to use the same account, also account inactivity charges will apply if you don't use the account, why is it so hard for them to understand that a family might want to use the one account, this is just a small account for a few small trades, come on IG.

UPDATE:

 

Now we are getting silly, here is the solution from IG help desk, have my husband open an account, then transfer my shares to his account and then close my account.

Really, how about you unlock my account, and we just get on with life.

Everyone who signs up to IG will have to go through KYC checks to make sure that only the individual who wants to trade is trading. This applies for everyone, irrespective of marital status. There are a number of additional legal and regulatory requirements which must be followed when trading.

 

This means that if you admit that either you signed up for an account in a different persons name (even if that is your partner), or that someone other than the account holder is trading, then yes - your account will be locked until the appropriate legal documents have been signed. There are a number of reasons why this is required, but it boils down to a basic principle: any form of investment has a potential to lose money if the markets move against you, and therefore any trade decision needs to be made by an individual who accepts liability and funds their own account. 

 

How to sort a limited power of attorney 

 

We understand that many will like to have shared accounts, or to be able to deal on their partners accounts. This is why there is a process in place to make this as smooth and quick as possible. Each individual needs to create an account at IG.com, and this shouldn't take longer than 3 or 4 minutes per individual. You then need to fill out the appropriate Limited Power of Attorney form (which is here for Australian clients, or can simply be searched in IG.com for your relevant location) which is a legal requirement, and email it to us. Assuming everything  is correct on the form, the turn around is usually complete within a day. 

 

I hope this clarifies things.

Thank you for your reply,

This was all that needed to be done in the first place, clear and concise instructions.

No need for the hostilities from IG Staff, not everyone is a crook.

Problem has now been rectified.

So it still goes on, no POA in place, No shares have been transferred in to my account and no emails or any form of contact from IG,

so what do I do now, its no wonder people get upset, your support is really bad.

 

Any help or Ideas would be appreciated.

I'm sorry that you are not happy with our service, but I have just looked back at the events / conversation surrounding this and I believe we were waiting on the LPOA documentation from yourself? After your initial query on Community above, and the reply requesting you send in a LPOA form, I can see that you sent us the form this morning. Turn around for manual processes and checks by our KYC team are generally a day (24 hours), but it looks like this was completed within 12 hours from when you sent the form. 

 

I have just had a look at your account and believe everything is now in order? Please give our TS team a call if you wish to discuss anything further as I believe this would be account specific which we wouldn't be able to discuss on a public forum.

    • While after all the previous halvings, Bitcoin's price skyrocketed, this halving will be different. This is because now the Bitcoin ETF is in play, which will attract long-term investors, resulting in a decrease in volatility. Bitcoin will most likely still experience a hike and reach new heights, but the returns will not match the previous levels.
    • KO Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Daily Chart, The Coca-Cola Company, (KO) Daily Chart KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Flat POSITION: Minute wave {c} of 2.   DIRECTION: Bottom in wave {c}. DETAILS: With yesterday’s session we’ve had a spike in volume on the bull side, which could make us start thinking the correction is either completed, or soon to be. We have almost reached 1.618 {c} vs. {a}., but more importantly we have reached the base of the leading diagonal in wave 1, where many times support is found.         KO Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4Hr Chart, The Coca-Cola Company, (KO) 4Hr Chart KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Flat POSITION: Wave (v) of {c}. DIRECTION: Bottom in wave (v). DETAILS: Here on the intraday chart it’s easier to see the five wave move in wave {c} which seems to have unfolded nicely. Looking for a clear sign of a bottom in place.        As of April 18, 2024, Elliott Wave analysts closely monitor the daily and 4-hour charts of The Coca-Cola Company (Ticker: KO) to provide insightful technical forecasts. These Elliott Wave predictions play a crucial role in identifying potential trends and reversal points in the stock's price movement.     * KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart* The Elliott Wave analysis on the daily chart of Coca-Cola shows a corrective phase within a flat structure, identified as minute wave {c} of 2. This phase is categorized under a counter trend function, suggesting that the ongoing correction is approaching completion. The recent trading session marked a significant increase in volume on the bullish side, hinting at a nearing end to the correction. Technically, the price has approached the critical 1.618 Fibonacci extension of wave {c} relative to {a}, reaching a key support level at the base of the leading diagonal from wave 1—a typical zone for finding support.   * KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – 4hr Chart* On the 4-hour chart, Coca-Cola’s stock exhibits a detailed structure of the corrective phase, clearly depicting wave (v) of {c}. This finer resolution allows for a clearer visualization of the complete five-wave move within wave {c}, indicating the likelihood of a bottom formation. Analysts are keenly observing for definitive signs that confirm the bottom is firmly in place, signaling potential bullish reversals.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta   Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!    
    • I came across an interesting new meme token called EPIK that launched on the Solana blockchain earlier this month. It features a playful little duck character and has been gaining traction since its debut. In my opinion, several factors contribute to EPIK's potential. Meme coins naturally attract attention, and EPIK's unique duck character design helps it stand out. Additionally, backing from crypto influencers has fueled market interest. It seems on-chain activity is also picking up steam, with daily TV reaching millions of dollars and the number of holders approaching 10,000. With a strong community presence in both English-speaking and Chinese-speaking communities, a recent listing on Bitget potentially exposing it to a much wider audience, coupled with the potential for further price increases, I believe EPIK is a project to keep an eye on.
