Trouble finding US shares



I recently created a demo account in order to try out CFD trading

I primarily look for shares in the US to trade.

I found 7 shares in my stock screener which looked interesting, however, I was only able to find 1 of them when searching for them.

they were:

CAH - Cardinal Health Inc.

MOS - The Mosiac Company

NOV - National Oilwell Varco. Inc.

TV - Grupo Televisa S.A.B

JBLU - JetBlue Airways Corporation - was the only one I could find

X - United States Steel Corporation

JWN - Nordstrom, Inc. 

can someone help confirm whether or not  I am correct in not being able to locate 6 og the 7 shares mentioned above?

thank you for your help

Hi @Caseynotes


I log on through the website, arrive on dashboard page, selects Open platform, and the IG trading platform - CFD opens up, Click on search, on upper left hand side, type United States Steel, and the only result I get is something called "United States Lime & Minerals Inc".

is that not the correct method for searching ?

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG

A turn down could find some initial support in the 5700s, but the low at 5628 is the big level to watch. Broad outlook is of course very similar to the DAX.   CAC Daily Chart   CAC 40 Chart by TradingView   Oct 6, 2022 | DailyFX Paul Robinson, Strategist
