IG trading platform withdrawal experience?


Guest rachelbarnes

Question

Guest rachelbarnes

Hi Everyone, I'm from the UK and just received a pretty modest lump sum of money. With interest rates being so low along with my interest in finance, I'd like to invest a proportion of it (around £500- just to try things out), through an online self invest stocks and shares ISA,

After shopping around a little bit, I've decided that IG are offering probably the best deal out there for a UK investor who is protected by the FCA (although deGiro are extremely low cost, I'm worried about investing a lot with them due to the not being covered by the FCA.) As IG are originally book makers who apparently have the reputation of being rogues anyway, I was asking your advice on what to do... Once I invest my money, I'd hate if it was like pulling teeth trying to get it back out again or transferring to another broker. Would really appreciate anyone else sharing their experience with IG.

Thank you!

Hi,

While I agree with the post above, I feel that it didn't address your question. You are asking about money withdrawal experience with IG.

In my personal experience there has been no issues what so ever in making withdrawals of up to 30% of my available funds (that is the maximum I attempted to withdraw). Some problems may happen from time to time that relate to the platform itself, such as the "withdraw" button lagging or something of the sort, in which case a call to the customer support resolved the issue on the spot, and even carried out the withdraw request while on the phone (after ID checks of course).

I'm confident in IG's service, and hope to remain so in the future.

On a different topic, you mentioned that you are looking to invest a small amount of capital. IG is best suited for CFDs and FX trading, if you are looking to invest by purchasing actual shares of companies this is not provided by IG (at least from my end, maybe for different account types they offer it).

I hope this helps.

    • Hi KoketsolG, Thank you for your prompt response. However, that does not provide me the definitive understanding I desire.  1  Chart Price Units The first and fundamental question is what are the units of the chart price scale amount of 44,271.6 shown for High Grade Copper (US2.50) and High Grade Copper (A$1)? It is in US$, US cents, thousandths of 1 US$, ten thousandths of 1 US$ (what it looks like it could be), etc per Tonne or kilogram or pound? This leads to the question of "What is 1 point and 1 tick"? If the quoted 44,271.6 is in units of ten thousands of a US$, then is 1 Point = US$1.00, or  is 1 Point = 1/10,000th US$, (more generally, the digit unit immediately to the left of the decimal point)? It is assumed that the Tick value is the amount to the right of the decimal point. Similar questions apply to the Copper and Copper ($5 min) CFDs that are priced around 9,300. 2  Underlying Futures Contract Also, according to the IG Base Metals Contract specification the Copper Contract is 25 metric tonnes, and appears it is quoted in US Dollars. However, the only High Grade Futures Contract I've been able to find using Google is the CME Copper Futures Contract which provides a contract size of 25,000 pounds, which is specified as quoted in US Dollars. Thus it is unclear to me as to the actual underlying market upon which the IG Copper CFDs are based, and hence if the chart price unit being applied is price unit / kilogram or price unit / pound. There is a further complication with IG's Copper CFDs. There are 4 IG Copper CFDs: Copper, Copper ($5 mini) High Grade Copper ($2.50) High Grade Copper (A$1) The prices for the first 2 appear to be identical, currently around 9,300, while the later two have prices currently around 42,700. So what is the underlying Future Contract definition for each of these 4 CFDS? Cheers Trevor

Today, we'll explore two alternative corrective counts: one indicating the low is already in place, and another suggesting the corrective pattern could double in size. It's crucial to exercise caution, especially for long positions. We'll discuss optimal entry points and stop placements to manage risks effectively. Russell 2000 (RUT) Current Status: The Russell 2000 is completing Wave (iv) and is expected to move higher. We will maintain our long positions. European Markets: DAX 40 and FTSE 100 Current Status: The European markets have yet to complete intermediate Wave (4). The patterns remain choppy, making it challenging to provide trade recommendations at this time. ASX 200 Medium-Term Outlook: The ASX 200 is anticipated to trade above and below the 8000 level in a series of Wave 4s, gradually edging higher. We will stay long in this market.
