This week it's Zoom Video Communications Inc. We're also offering Tesla but that will stay on the platform going forward whereas the weekly options will change depending on which week of earnings season we're in. What is an Equity option?

  6. Hey, the corporate actions team have advised me that if, on a form, you're asked for a HIN number instead but your iG account number. As IG operates a domestic custody model, HINs are not required. Your stock is identified by your account number. The only information required to transfer stock via another broker is your account number, the name of the stock, the quantity to be transferred and our PID (20018). All the best
  7. Hey, I've sent an email over to our aus corporate actions team regarding this. I will have an update by Monday We're not able to give out the HIN number as we're nominee account.
  8. We're so sorry that you couldn't get through to us and the impact it's had. I will pass this message onto our senior team to show the impact this is having. If you haven't already please reach out to us if you can't wait on the phone please email and request a call back. Make sure your exposure is correct then mention you did try to ring and ask them to take that into consideration when resolving the issue. All the best and apologies to both of you
  9. Hey, I completely understand your frustration and I will pass it onto our senior team as well as the exposure desk. The decisions has been made but I'm so sorry for how it's impacting your trading. With exceptional client demand in the equity space, we have reviewed our 12000 leveraged markets and decided to withdraw less than 1000 small cap equities, after a review of associated returns on these markets. We will continue to support these markets for Share Dealing, where that product is available. Sorry again for this inconvenience. All the best
  10. Hey @SunnyD, Thanks for your post, If you buy a future contract it usually has a slightly larger spread however you're not subject to overnight funding like you are for cash price/ DFB. You will not be charged 20 pts per night it's just the initial 20 points spread when you open the position. If you leave it there (and have enough on your account to cover your margin) there aren't any other fees. Just as a heads up the April contract actually expires in March. You can find details on the platform in the get info section: All the best
  11. Hey @GORDON_G Thanks for your post. The minimum stop distance is widened when there's extreme levels of volatility. That being said I will pass on the message about tightening these stop distances. All the best
  12. Hey Mark, Please know our settlement period works on a T+2 (T+3 for US shares) basis. This means the cash for these shares won't settle on your account the day you sold them but two (three for US shares) working days. Many thanks for your understanding. I hope this clarifies why you can't withdraw your funds at the moment.
  13. Hey @jakeyboyy To update you will have to contact us with your updated details. Please note, our team may ask for proof of your change in earnings and savings. All the best
