DRP and HIN


Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

Don't why IG is refusing to action/prioritise the request for dividend reinvestment plan options and a HIN.

I raised this back in 2017 (beneath) - to be told regulatory priorities were being prioritised over this capability, that was over two years ago.  

Considering the fact the trading platform does not fully work on Mac OS (charting etc) its to work out where development efforts are being directed.. I have and will continue to advise long term investors to stay away from IG - if it were not for certain US markets I would have closed my account back in 2017.

 

Also now, wanting to sign up for an IPO - no HIN available, as per beneath closed thread - they just keep on sweeping this stuff away like nothing happened or was requested.. no future request tracking or proper feedback.

Why have a community and forum and pretend to be taking feedback on board when nothing can be actioned or prioritised?

CHESS  (and it's HIN) is only used in Australia and for stocks traded on the Australian Securities Exchange whereas IG use the Custodian Model which is the global standard, can be used for any international stocks and is also more cost effective so they are not going to change. 

There is no promise but it is hoped that DRiP will be on the new share dealing platform when it arrives which can't be far away as the old platform uses Flash which is due to be discontinued by Adobe very soon.

    • By the way if its a system you want to demo or try, I trade US 500 and Russell Long only, with no stops, I would not trade with no stops for gold, oil etc but am happy to do it on US indices as nothing recovers as quickly as US markets, so if I am wrong i just hold it until it goes in profit again, when I am wrong I wait until market recovers, so sometimes when market has gone against me I have to wait 4 -8 weeks before it recovers but this way means no drawdowns only overnight currency charge which is minima. You need to trade wihin your accoutn to do this as you need to make sure your balance is big enough when you get it wrong. You could try it on IG demo account  to see if it worked for you.
    • Yes your balance needs to be above 0, that's your most important number don't fall into the trap of thinking if its above 0 you can put trades on, you can but your balance needs to be big enough that if they go against you, you are still above 0, if not you get messgage from IG to add funds to your account or IG will take you out of trades, so if you had a trade you wanted to keep on it would now be taken out as a loss as funds in balance are in minus. You need a big enough number left in the balance column that if your trades go against you you can still hold if you want to.
