Nationality

Question

Every time I try to execute a simple trade I get the attached message.  There is no "banner" and no place in "My IG" to verify my nationality.  I have completed the US tax form, including nationality and residence, which was accepted as follows:

*********************************************************************

You can now buy U.S. stock

You can now buy US stock in share dealing accounts and receive US dividend equivalent income in spread betting and CFD accounts.

This form is valid until 31/12/2021. We will ask you to verify and update this information in 2021.

Please note: Changing your name, address, tax residence or other personal details may invalidate this form and a new form may be required. To inform us of a change to your information, personal circumstances or if you have any other questions, please go to MyIG/Settings or call our help desk.

**********************************************************************

So now what?

@demon1962,

You really should not be posting a copy of your passport here on the IG Community for the potential of 'stealing' or 'hijacking' your personal information for the use of fraudulent activity. There could be 'identity theft' implications. It has your 'photo', 'date of birth', 'full name', 'signature' and 'passport number'. 

@JamesIG, please can you remove this passport picture immediately?

Actually now you mention it where is the 'report post' tab? I know there used to be one but can't see it now, I can see the 'share this post' icon tab top right corner but there is nothing next to it.

    • The bulls are coming back: APAC brief 21 Jan
      The bulls are coming back: Traders received the greenlight to jump into risk assets on Friday. It culminated in a substantial jump across global equities and a certain “risk-on” attitude to trading. The impetus was arguably more technical than fundamental. The boost in sentiment in being attributed mostly the leaked news that Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin was planning to lift US tariffs on China. Whatever the motive, nefarious or simply untrue, that story was quickly denied by the White House. However, it signalled enough to the market that progress was being made in trade war negotiations. That extra fuel to this recovery’s fire supported a push above very significant technical levels in Wall Street indices, attracting buyers and further validating the view that the December sell-off is behind us.

      The stock market’s biggest fan: There’s one market participant who is apparently willing that notion to be true: US President Donald Trump. The US President obviously uses the stock market’s performance as a measure of his success – rightly or wrongly. And over the weekend, amidst the very many Tweets that were Tweeted by Trump, this one outlined his view on the US economy and stock market: “the Economy is one of the best in our history, with unemployment at a 50 year low, and the Stock Market ready to again break a record (set by us many times)…” Quite a pledge to make – and one markets participants aren’t going to take too seriously. Regardless, it does provide a perversely comforting story for markets, to know that the US President is wishing this market higher.
