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.

    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........  
    • Yeah........ so that happened ...
