There are two factors, which can have an effect on your ability to trade US instruments on SaxoInvestor:
- You have not submitted a proof of identity during the sign-up process
- You are a US national
If you did not submit a proof of identity (POI) during the sign-up process and now want to trade US instruments; you need to upload a valid POI via the SaxoInvestor platform by creating a support ticket under the subject Proof of identity / residential address and attaching the document.
If you are a US national you will not be able to trade US instruments. Due to reporting requirements Saxo Bank does not allow US nationals to trade stocks (incl. stock options which settle physically), CFDs, bonds and ETFs issued by US incorporated entities.
