Can no longer buy shares as retails customer due to new rules!

Recommended Posts

Greetings.

In the past year I was buying "VelocityShare 3x Long Silver ETN" shares listed in the USA.

Then a few weeks ago I tried to buy some more, but found out that I could only close my position (sell shares) and was unable to buy anymore. I called IG and they told me this was because I was a retail client, and not a professional client, and the new regulations meant that I could not purchase said shares unless I was a professional client. 

My question is, where is the sense in applying new ESMA rules to Shares? In that, I am buying the shares out right, there is no leverage or borrowing? Or am I missing something? 

Thoughts/guidance welcome! 

Thanks in advance.

    • Market data to trade on Wednesday: TSLA, IBM, ASML earnings; GBP/USD Earnings continue to dominate as traders await numbers from Metro Bank in the UK, ASML in Europe and IBM and Tesla in the US. Also watch inflation data in the UK which may seal the deal for the BoE to raise rates on 4 November. https://www.ig.com/uk/market-insight-articles/market-data-to-trade-on-wednesday--tsla--ibm--asml-earnings--gbp-211019
    • Hi @THT and @skyreach, Thanks for sharing your views on the BoE upcoming event. Just to add, Mike Riddell, a senior portfolio manager at Allianz Global Investors said “There is a lot of history that suggests bad things happen soon after yield curves start to invert, and that’s what is now priced at the front end of the UK rates curve.”   The big question from the markets now is the BoE about to make a policy mistake ? As investors are worrying over potential BoE rates mistake.   All the best - MongiIG
