Trading restrictions on GameStop and AMC

Recommended Posts

This is unacceptable. illegal.

Both Robinhood and T212 tried this and they failed. all the user base is leaving after this week.

I thought IG incorruptible platform. GME showed which platforms to trust and which to avoid.

Received an email from IG that they restrict buying these stocks.



Why is it not allowed (other than it hurts big boys)?

Market is volatile but still you're allowed to trade other stocks and even close out if you own these stocks but just can't buy them.  Is it even legal to restrict retail traders arbitrarily?

Trading 212 tried this the other day too. I have complained and suggest others do the same.

Here is a link to a letter outlining what FCA rules they are breaking.

Makes me want to hold even more due to this shady practice.

Great, thanks for sharing the template and link!

We really need to take this to FCA to stop the market manipulation by these platforms.

I've submitted a complaint to the abuse team at FCA. I suggest everyone effected does the same for visibility.

VJJHC, thanks for the great link! I am very not happy with IG. Does anyone know which broker still allows unrestricted GME trading?

PS. HOLDING now matter what!

Disappointing... I was willing to put up with the platform crashes.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
