Questions on US IG Accounts from within UK


StevenWright

Question

Please can you answer the following questions:

1) Is it possible to create and trade CFDs from a USA IG Account while living in the UK?

2) Is it possible to trade a US IG Account using a GBP account - therefore the trade will not be subject to exchange rates at the time the trade is made.

3) What are the margin requirements for the US? In the UK with spreadbetting a £10 per pip trade will need nearly £20,000 (or about 200:1) in reserves as margin. What are these ratios for the USA?

4) If I can use a US account, it is possible to use both the web app and MT4 on the same trading account - hence I can trade with MT4 or the web app.

5) If I can trade between the web app and MT4 platforms, if I create trade on the web app, does it automatically show on the MT4 platform?

6) If i can trade on the web app but the MT4 platform is not automatically updated - please can you confirm if there are any other actions required so that this integration is possible.

Please would it be possible to receive a notification when a reply has been made.

Thank you.

Steve.

    • Doloress. If you don't want to buy them on an exchange and use a wallet to sold storage them yourself, you cshould consider someone like Globalblock who will enable you to buy/sell and also offer a safe storage solution for Crypto. I also use Gemini which you can set up easily online and have safe storage solutions. Click and trade. Bybit are not bad as an exchange but you sound like you are just starting up so you may want to consider one of the two earlier options for peace of mind. My advice would be to start off with something like 60% BTC ,  30% ETH and the remaining 10% split into alts like Polkadot , ADA, XLM and LTC. Use Tradingview (or IG have this actually) to look at the ETHBTC chart over four years which shows you that ETHBTC got close to  1,000 at one point and is currently only 415 . This shows you that in a bull market ETH should outperform BTC by almost twice. Other alts could give you even more upside relative to BTC  but the big institutions are buying nearly all BTC and some ETH. Other useful sites are real vision.com with lots of good Crypto explainer videos. Follow PlanB, Northstar ,Nikkitrades and a few others on Twitter . Good luck!! 
    • If you want long exposure to Bitcoin you could consider buying Microstrategy Inc as a kind of proxy call option seeing as they have a policy of hoarding Bitcoin, but they have run up a lot recently despite Bitcoin retracing significantly from its recent high, so allow for a delay effect. I would try to value the  company with and without the Bitcoin stake to get an idea how much fluff is in the price, cos if everyone suddenly dumps their Bitcoin at the same time it could end up being a virtual asset that is virtually worthless.  
    • Hey all,  There's a team currently working to add a dividend reinvestment plan. We don't have a time frame yet but I will update you.  All the best
