Yes, kept happening to me ever and over. Very frustrating. I thought the firm had gone bust or something. Couldn't get hold of RM either for a long while. There should be a record message or something to reassure clients as much as possible. Very worrying when you are blind to your positions and there's nothing you can do.

Frozen Charts or 'Unavailable to Open' etc.  is almost a daily occurrence for me.  I thought it was typical of Spread Betting where the most active stocks are closed because of Volatility.  They usually become available after the market has been open for an hour, but by then I've missed any breakout potential.

I knew I couldn't be the only one.  This must be happening more often that anyone is willing to admit.

 I even posted about a week ago that i searched the entire LSE for any stock on the move above 5%.  Of the hundreds or thousands in the list,  I managed about 10 that I could potentially trade on.  Less than half of them able to Short.  The rest had spreads so large I'd need to own a bank to trade them.

Looks like a transfer for me to go  to Hargreaves and Lansdown   is  on the books. My SIPP is with hargeaves and they seem pretty good, its just a shame their charges are higher than IG. 


Seems they're not accepting any new SB clients at the moment.

    • 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.
