Hi all . Having been advised by a long term investor to on a particular US company I have opened a CFD account and submitted a W8-BEN form via the IG link.  The trouble is , I am finding it difficult to place a short deal from my CFD platform. Do I have to go direct to an IG agent to short ,or am I missing something on my platform or dashboard . Any help gratefully received.

Hi, by the time stamp on your post was the US market open? For ref the Deal ticket is for 'at market' orders (instant execution), the market must be open, and the Order ticket is for Pending orders that can be placed and wait for market open.
