Account Creation Japan

Question

Hey All

I would like to (at some point) open a live account but I am currently residing in Japan for the foreseeable future (with a short stint in the UK next summer). 

I would like to use my UK funds and bank account to trade, but wondering what are the legal implications (if any) of this if I was to trade while residing in Japan.

I do have addresses in the UK I can use but I am not currently living there of course. 

I am a UK citizen by the way.

Thanks in advance

Hi @xr89,  from what I know I don't think you should have a problem, you will need to consider which base currency the account should be and which country to use as residence. Perhaps @JamesIG can add more or you could contact the different IG head offices, you may be able to choose between Australia or esma regulated UK. Take a look at the comparison page from the link.

    • Yeah, only tested on a 5min chart so far. It does about 177 trades in 1 year and a quarter, so less than 1 trade per day on average
