Why was my order rejected for no trading permissions when I have permisissions for ETFs?

EEA retail investors' orders for products not complying with the EU's PRIIPS regulation will be rejected. PRIIPS requires a Key Information Document (KID) for products like derivatives, ETFs, ETNs, and certain funds. Stocks, standard bonds and FX are exempted. The rule doesn't apply to closing existing positions. Further permissions might be required for complex products. More details are in the IBKR Knowledge Base.
