We open two separate trading accounts for you when you apply, a domestic account held with IG South Africa and an international account held with IG UK.  This means that you can trade local instruments (in local currency) as well as over 15,000 international markets (in a range of foreign currencies) with the security, technology and support of the FTSE-250 listed, IG Group.

We do this in order to adhere to South African exchange control regulations that only allow local instruments to be traded on a domestic account. This also means that you are going to be restricted in moving funds between those two accounts, as well as funding methods for each one.

    • Hi @marksiqi What happens if the stock I am trading delists? If you have an open leveraged position on a stock that delists, we’ll close your position at a level of zero and typically open a new position – called a ‘proceeds line’ – on your behalf which is untradeable, has no price and brings no value to your account. Once the company confirms there is no return to shareholders, which could take years, we will close your proceeds line position at the level of zero. However, we won’t start this procedure as soon as a company announces it is delisting. The stock status will first need to be reviewed by our corporate actions and risk departments. If you own shares in a company that delists on your IG leveraged account, we can close the position completely upon request and thus waive your right to potential future proceeds. On the other hand, if you hold those shares on your IG share dealing account, we can't close the position. This is because when you trade on leverage, you're trading over-the-counter with us - so we're able to take care of things like this in-house. However, when you buy or sell shares in a company, you're trading on an exchange that we have no control over. You can also read the following article for a better understanding: what happens if a stock is delisted.   All the best - MongiIG
