restricted from opening any position


kelvinnsw

Question

hey guys, havent been trading or using this account for quite some time (less than a year) and decided to open a trade today morning. managed to deposit money into the account but unable to make a trade due to ''your account has been restricted from opening any position, please contact the helpdesk for more information.''. tried to call multiple times to the helpdesk to seek help but calls were not picked up at all. waited for almost 2 hours and by that time my position to enter had already been long gone. had to incur transaction fees from depositing money into my account w/o being able to place my trade.

 

anyway i could waive this transaction fees as well as enabling my account for future trades?

 

thank you.

HI,

I have the same problem, just coming back to a dormant account.

Tried calling Singapore's support hotline a few times already, but have been put on hold each time.

Haven't received a response for the email to helpdesk too.

Hi,

I have the same problem and i have been trying to call and email for the solution. Yet it replied for once said that I have changed the address. I did change the address for 30 seconds and then I changed it back. I have been calling for several times to address this problem but it seems on hold every time.

Thanks for your post. 

Our client facing team are emailing/ taking as many calls as possible. 

If your address isn't changing on your account someone should email you soon to let you know why. 

All the best

There's lots of reasons this could happen it's best to reach out to us. I will get someone to send you an email. 

The main reason this could happen is if you've changed your address multiple times or your addressed don't match documentation you've sent in. The way to resolve this is to send ID, utility bill and bank statement.

All the best.

    • This is why I think using volatility as an important input is a much better way..... It's not about predicting the markets, it's about proactively preparing for what maybe around the corner. Follow me on twitter for more updates. Took me all night to model that price action and it paid off “ biggly”.    Take care out there  CA  
    • A higher than normal spread generally indicates one of two things, high volatility in the market or low liquidity due to out-of-hours trading. Before news events, or during big shock (Brexit, US Elections), spreads can widen greatly. A low spread means there is a small difference between the bid and the ask price. From google
    • I don't think it would be a problem trading during the weekend. You can trade whenever you want.  I learned how to do it on the cryptoinformator website. The highest income is brought by bitcoin. When looking at the value of the current 55,000 dollars, of course, everyone is thinking about investing in it. Forecasts vary, and many believe that by the end of 2021, they would have surpassed 100,000 dollars. The growth is projected to be based on the fact that real-world payment flow stock markets are still burdened by the current pandemic but is also based on the increasing acceptance of BTC as legal tender ( PayPal is bringing this option, and bitcoin is also coming to Wall Street soon).
