As the title says,  I cannot find a way to open a spreadbetting account. I began with a share dealig account,  moved to smart investment but cannot open any other accounts.

Hi @Tomasbps - This could be a due to a number of factors relating to your account specifically (location / personal circumstance etc) and the best way to resolve this would be over the phone. If you can please give us a call at a time convenient to yourself (we have a 24 hour service throughout the trading week), we'll look to sort a resolution.

Hi @Tomasbps, not sure what user interface you have with the smart investment account but if you have a 'My IG' page then the dashboard should give details of your accounts plus have a blue '+ add an account' tab to add additional live and demo accounts for CFD & SB.

Hello @Caseynotes, when I open the add an account tab there 4 options. ISA, SIPP,  Smart Portfolio and Share dealing accounts. Should I have extra options for CFD and Spreadbetting or are they integrated somewhere?

Thanks for the help sl far.

Hi @Tomasbps,  ok, there seems to be a disconnect between investment accounts and SB/CFD accounts. From my SB account I have tabs to add cfd/mt4 (live and demo) and an investment account but it doesn't seem to work the other way round. If you go to the contacts page it looks like the 'Live Chat' facility is open or the phone line (if in the UK) they will be able to give more info. I suspect there may be differing criteria for opening leveraged accounts over non-leveraged.

    • Look Ahead to 07/02/23: RBA; GB Retail Sales; BP, BNPP earnings Australia’s central bank is likely to deliver a fourth consecutive quarter-point interest rate hike, after further tightening by the Fed, the ECB and the BoE. Brace for UK retail, earnings from BP (BP) and BNP Paribas (BNPP). Also, look out for US trade balance figures and Halifax house price data ahead of key UK growth data out later in the week.    Angeline Ong | Presenter, Analyst and Content Editor, London | Publication date: Monday 06 February 2023        
    • Hi, I am practicing certain strategies in demo account. I have created few screeners but when i tried to buy or short sell different stocks shortlisted based on screener conditions, i am getting different kinds of errors. Some stocks you can buy but can't short-sell and so on. I searched in the forums and i understand different restrictions such as market cap should be so and so. Are these rules defined somewhere?  for e.g. one forum reply says market cap should be above 10 billion otherwise you will get second message in below list. However even i try to short sell a stock that has £30 billion market cap, i get the same error.  1. IG is not accepting opening trades on this market, you may only place an order to close. 2. Market you have requested is not longer available online Any suggestions on the above will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
