Same boat here - Waiting 4 days now for the account activation. Wrote to them on two different email support addresses with no reply either. I know we are in "special circumstances" but it takes little effort to inform customers on the ways company is dealing with it. 

I know that Degiro is down on staff members (official info on their site) and they're having a queue system for new applicants - you just get the number in the queue (currently like 7k+ ) and info that once it will be close to your turn they will contact you via email to finish the process. I guess it's the same issue here and all we can do is seat and wait... shame it is not communicated.

I am also waiting, it says that it usually takes 2 hours, I am hoping I will also not have to wait this long to get my account activated...

Just a reality check for you. I applied for a share account on the 22/3/2020, my account has finally been approved and opened as of this morning, 27/4/2020.

Posts to the forum won't speed it up. Emails won't speed it up. I didn't try waiting in a phone queue, but other posters have. All you can do is sit tight, or go to a different provider.

IG's communication is pretty dire if my experience is anything to go by. It takes about a week to get a first reply to an email, might be a little faster for follow-ups. Don't make the mistake of using a mail forwarding email address (can't send, only receive) as your IG account address, that causes no end of issues with them claiming data protection, even though I didn't even ask at any point for anything account confidential. Had to change it to a different address in the end.

I don't feel they accurately deal with emails - the responses to me so far kinda miss the mark and just feel a bit sloppy.

Absolutely, this is what IG needs. Stop telling people that document verification takes around 2 hours when it takes a week. Tell people that applications are queued and tell them the current queue length and processing time of >1 month. The reason why their customer support is so busy and unable to reply promptly is because they are not providing the correct information up front on the website. It's not rocket science.

Oh, and they will want to have additional personal wealth information sent to them by email instead of collecting it during the sign up process - another drag on customer service.

Don't waste your time and get stressed. Either wait or go elsewhere.

If I hadn't send my ID documents to IG at the beginning, I wouldn't have waited the >month time period and just gone elsewhere.

Just for a comparison: I opened up an account with another financial provider in the mean time, not brokerage but it had all the same verification requirements. It took ~2 hours, including human verification of ID document photos and a bit of email communication. Says it all really.

So, some other things to note:

If you have used the forum before account approval, you will likely lose the forum nick you chose as you have to re-register for the forum. Your old nick will still be floating around, you just won't have access to it (or perhaps it is just not linked to your account, but you can still login separately, no idea).

After eventually having my share account approved, I was able to open an ISA account without further delays.

Although not immediately necessary, I decided to verify my bank account for withdrawals. This involves submitting a screenshot of an online banking statement from your bank account, which is then manually verified again. This verification only took a few hours.

I made a small test deposit by bank transfer into one of my accounts to verify I was doing things correctly. The deposit arrived into the account overnight.

    • S&P BSE Sensex (India) Elliott Wave Analysis - Day Chart Trend Analysis: Function: Trend Mode: Impulsive Structure: Navy blue wave 3 Current Position: Gray wave 5 Direction for Next Higher Degrees: Continuation of navy blue wave 3 Detailed Analysis: The S&P BSE Sensex (India) day chart, analyzed using Elliott Wave Theory, indicates a trending market. Currently, the market is in an impulsive mode, signifying strong directional price movements rather than corrective or sideways movements. The primary structure under observation is the navy blue wave 3, part of an impulsive wave sequence. This phase is characterized by significant upward momentum, indicating a strong bullish trend. The market is presently in gray wave 5, typically the final wave in an impulsive sequence, suggesting an impending completion before a potential corrective phase. Looking at the next higher degrees, the analysis projects the continuation of navy blue wave 3. This continuation indicates that even after the completion of gray wave 5, the broader bullish trend symbolized by navy blue wave 3 is expected to persist. The detailed analysis notes that navy blue wave 2 of 5 appears complete, indicating that the market has concluded a corrective phase and is now entering the next impulsive phase, labeled as navy blue wave 3. This phase is anticipated to demonstrate strong upward price movements, furthering the overall bullish trend. A critical component of this analysis is the wave cancellation invalid level, set at 69732.12. This level serves as a key threshold; if the market falls below this point, the current wave analysis would be invalidated, necessitating a reassessment of the wave structure. Summary: The day chart analysis of the S&P BSE Sensex indicates the market is in an impulsive phase, specifically within navy blue wave 3, following the completion of navy blue wave 2 of 5. The ongoing momentum in navy blue wave 3 suggests continued bullish activity. The critical wave cancel invalid level is set at 69732.12, essential for validating the current wave analysis.   S&P BSE Sensex (India) Elliott Wave Analysis - Weekly Chart Trend Analysis: Function: Trend Mode: Impulsive Structure: Navy blue wave 3 Current Position: Gray wave 5 Direction for Next Higher Degrees: Continuation of navy blue wave 3 Detailed Analysis: The weekly chart of the S&P BSE Sensex (India), analyzed using Elliott Wave Theory, provides a comprehensive view of the market trends.

The current position within this sequence is gray wave 5, typically marking the final stage of an impulsive wave sequence before a potential corrective phase. Looking at the next higher degrees, the analysis continues to point towards navy blue wave 3, indicating that even after the completion of gray wave 5, the overall bullish trend represented by navy blue wave 3 is expected to continue.

This completion suggests the market has ended a corrective phase and is now entering the next impulsive phase, designated as navy blue wave 3.

    • USDCHF Day Chart Elliott Wave Analysis USDCHF Elliott Wave Technical Analysis Function: Counter Trend Mode: Corrective Position: Navy blue wave 2 Structure: Gray wave 1 Next Lower Degrees: Navy blue wave 3 The USDCHF Elliott Wave Analysis on the daily chart offers a detailed examination of market behavior through Elliott Wave Theory. The current movement is identified as a counter trend, suggesting a corrective phase rather than a continuation of the dominant trend. The mode of this wave is corrective, indicating the market is adjusting previous impulsive moves. Currently, the analysis focuses on navy blue wave 2, implying a significant correction after the initial impulsive wave, marked as gray wave 1. As the market approaches the end of the navy blue wave 2 correction, the analysis points towards a transition into navy blue wave 3. This wave typically involves strong and directional price movements, indicating a significant market shift. The ongoing navy blue wave 2 is forming a flat correction, a pattern characterized by sideways movement, suggesting indecision and a temporary balance between buyers and sellers. This phase is nearing its end, setting the stage for the next impulsive phase. An important aspect of this analysis is the wave cancel invalid level at 0.92250. If the market moves below this point, the current wave analysis would be invalidated, requiring a reassessment of the wave structure. Summary: The USDCHF day chart indicates a corrective phase, labeled as navy blue wave 2, following the impulsive gray wave 1. The next anticipated move is the transition into navy blue wave 3, an impulsive phase. The critical level for validating the current wave analysis is set at 0.92250.   USDCHF 4-Hour Chart Elliott Wave Analysis USDCHF Elliott Wave Technical Analysis Function: Counter Trend Mode: Corrective Position: Orange wave C Structure: Navy blue wave 2 Next Lower Degrees: Navy blue wave 3 The USDCHF Elliott Wave Analysis on the 4-hour chart provides insight into market behavior using Elliott Wave Theory. The current market movement is classified as a counter trend, indicating a corrective phase rather than a continuation of the primary trend. The current mode is corrective, showing the market is adjusting prior impulsive moves. The specific wave under analysis is orange wave C, part of a corrective sequence following the completion of orange wave B. This suggests the market has finished a corrective wave B and is now in the final leg of the correction with wave C. The broader structure includes navy blue wave 2, typically a corrective wave following an initial impulsive wave 1, indicating the market is undergoing a significant correction after completing the first impulsive wave of a larger cycle. The analysis points towards the next lower degrees, indicating the direction is towards navy blue wave 3. After the current corrective phase (navy blue wave 2) concludes, the market is expected to enter an impulsive phase identified as navy blue wave 3, often characterized by strong and directional price movements. The current phase, orange wave C of 2, indicates the market is in the final stages of this correction before potentially resuming the main trend. An essential aspect of this analysis is the wave cancellation invalid level at 0.92250. If the market falls below this point, the current wave analysis would be invalidated, requiring a reevaluation of the wave structure. Summary: The USDCHF 4-hour chart analysis indicates the market is in a corrective phase, labeled as orange wave C within navy blue wave 2. The next expected movement is a transition into navy blue wave 3, marking an impulsive phase. The critical level for validating the current wave analysis is set at 0.92250.   Technical Analyst : Malik Awais Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
