Account Creation Japan

Guest xr89


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.

    • Why isn't there a way to set options stop loss on IG platform?  Are you planning to implement this feature?
    • Hi,  I started trading Brent Crude Oil in IG platform but I could find a formula to correctly calculate the size I have to put while creating a position, based on the available amount I have. The quotation is based in points and it makes me wonder how operate. Any help is welcome.  Also, I plan to work with some leverage in the future, so any tip on this matter is also welcome.  Thanks.
