Posts from new Community members now require manual content approval

Recommended Posts

Hi all

On the back of an obvious increase in marketing and spam on IG Community, all new members first posts now require content approval from a moderator or myself. Approval usually happens very quickly, after which new member posts will be live for others to see.

Moderator approval is only required for the first post, after which all posts will be instantly auto approved. Make your first post or comment today to get involved with Community. 

For existing members: please use the 'Report Post' function in the top right hand corner to bring such posts which slip through the net to our attention quicker. Thanks.

At the moment there's an issue with some of the new posts being approved. I have contacted our technical team regarding this and am hoping to get it sorted shortly. 

Most of them are API questions, which may be answered on our Labs community page: 

https://labs.ig.com/community

I will update this feed as soon as this is resolved. 

Apologies to anyone this is affecting :(

Hello

I'm new to this community. I would be grateful if you could let me know how long would it normally take to complete the document verification. I have just uploaded my documents. Thanks in advance. Regards

Many thanks for your replies.

My account has not been activated yet though I had uploaded the required documents on 4th April 2020.

Could anyone advise me regarding the reason for this long delay please?

Kind regards

Jis

    • https://www.nasdaq.com/articles/when-performance-matters%3A-nasdaq-100-vs.-sp-500-second-quarter-20-2020-07-13 should look similar with GICS - i.e. NDX underweight (vs SPX)to Financials (incl. RE), Energy, Materials and Utilities together roughly 25%... and those went kinda nowhere over the more or less recent past...:     ...of course this is rather superficial, but (together with comparisons posted earlier) suggests really exactly two - closely linked - segments in global asset markets have been trending (up) recent years:  US large cap tech and consumer (incl. Healthcare) stocks.   ...apparently a significant share of all the money printed globally this period  seems to eventually somehow have found its way into these highly concentrated segments...
    • I know relative to some brokers (who are taking the absolute $%&*) IG fx conversion fee of 0.5% is okay, however its still an absolute joke that they and the industry can get away with this flagrant ripping off of customers. I would like to know if IG have any plans to reduce their conversion fee ( trading US stocks in an ISA) to compete with others such as Trading212 who don't charge fx fees at all.... I have a moderate account with substantial turnover, like others I know, I'm now considering transferring my account to 212 as I cant see any justification for such high fx conversion fees now its been shown thats its possible to remove them al together... Perhaps 0.1% to cover costs would be understandable, but 0.5% so 1% round trip on trading any size is ridiculous. I easily give IG thousands, if not tens of thousands a yr in fx fees...
    • Hey,  Unfortunately in Singapore we don't offer a non-leveraged account. We offer these types of accounts to other clients in other countries but not for Singapore.   Apologies for the inconvenience.
