Company merger, but ticker stuck in call to close


Recommended Posts

Eldorado ERI bought Caesars CZR. On Commsec they changed the ticker for ERI to CZR automatically. On IG, my ERI shares are still stuck in CALL TO CLOSE. Have called and e-mailed IG and they said the helpdesk is still working on changing the ticker.

Like, totally wtf?

It's been 48 hours now and my ERI shares are still locked. Anybody else have the same problem/?

Called them twice, emailed six times, 3 days later every response is they are resolving the ticker issue.

$1000 loss to far as we have been unable to close off the position.

The postion is still locked at $38.24 in ERI.

Unless for some insane reason our whole position was just meant to be paid out at $38.24 at the point of merger?

This is all due to a technical error on their behalf. Sheer incompetence.

Hold tight and make sure you get compensated (keep asking for status updates), otherwise go to the FCA.  Tweet them so that other people are aware of the problem too (a problem shared and all that).

6 e-mails latter, 2 phones calls, every e-mail saying, they are fixing the ticker, last one says call them during general session and they will give me my options. WTF. I think it sounds like everyone is working from home and the guy who knows how to fix it is on break....

Even commsec with it's crummy international portal got it done the instant the market opened.

Yeah.  I don't know.  Their web platform has serious issues so their new woman finance chief is going to spend £10 million on it.  Hope that's enough.  Their customer service appear to have given up.  They clearly don't give a flying f*ck.

4th Phone call. Still no fix. 

$1600USD loss and counting.

Have not been able to close the stock for over a week now.

Has been pushed up to corporate as no one can help or give a straight answer.

Looks like this is going to be headed to the onbudsman. This is beyond technical negligence.

Really? Are they denying financial responsibility for it? Can't see how this would need to go to an ombudsman - clearly seems to be caused by a technical shortcoming on their part.

Yeah, screwing someone out of $1600 is clearly just a wee technical glitch and no big deal.

Not really what I said, or indeed anything remotely like it.

Yeah, 'technical glitches' that cost clients money should absolutely go to a higher authority, especially when IG's technical 'support' is inaccessible or incompetent or simply can't be bothered.   Otherwise these c*nts will get away with a shoddy system, see? :)

Can't really argue with that. Providing of course you want to wait it out for an 'official' investigation.

I doubt the FCA will give it the time of day, personally.  The brokers are free to swindle and cheat :)

Nor do I. IG would doubtless claim extenuating circumstances due to the covid situation. Ultimately depends on whether you would want all the additional time and hassle to make a point. It's unlikely you would up with anything extra by going to the ombudsman, except possibly a dose of piles as you sit around waiting.

I'm in Australia, so it is going to be another entity. Obviously I'm not going to go to any onbudsman first would expect them to resolve.

Sounds like they don't have any idea what is happening. Their last response was a 'rebooking' is required. 

I explained the line of logic where:

Ticker changes happen all the time, the same stock on our other 2 brokerage accounts changed instantenously.

It doesn't make sense that a 'rebooking'/'/line change' needs to be done and I need to wait 7 days for this to happen.

If such was the case, why was I told on 4 separate e-mails to just wait for the ticker to change and the helpdesk is working on it (4 times via email and once via phone).

FYI I can't cannot do anything with the position. I'm getting the feeling that I'm being palmed off by juniors and wouldn't get a resolution until it honestly does go to the complaints department and someone senior can make a decision.

    • We are moving into ‘nonfarm payrolls Friday’ and the potential for volatility is significant after a broad mix of preceding employment statistics. While the employment report can certainly spur the markets like the S&P 500 and Dollar to action, traders should keep tabs on growing warnings from the IMF and Fed officials.   Full article on DailyFX

    • FTSE 100, DAX 40 and Nasdaq 100 stall ahead of US jobless data Outlook on FTSE 100, DAX 40 and Nasdaq 100 ahead of US Non-Farm Payroll data which may influence the US Federal Reserve’s (Fed) monetary policy going forward. Source: Bloomberg   Indices Federal Reserve United States Monetary policy DAX FTSE 100  Axel Rudolph | Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 07 October 2022  FTSE 100 rally taking a breather The FTSE 100 is retracing lower ahead of the widely anticipated US non-farm payroll (NFP) data which may influence the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) monetary policy going forward. The index has so far rallied by over 4% from its September low on the back of hopes of a slowing tightening path by the Fed after softer US economic data earlier in the week but ran out of steam slightly above the 7,100 mark. The June low at 6,966 may be revisited. Below it sits further minor support in the 6,945 to 6,934 region, made up of the 26,27 September lows and the 3 October high. A bullish reversal and rise above this week’s high at 7,104 would likely engage the early September low at 7,131 as well as the 8 September low at 7,174. Source: ProRealTime DAX 40 slips ahead of US unemployment data The DAX 40’s swift ascent on hopes of a slowdown in the speed and size of global rate hikes following the Reserve Bank of Australia’s (RBA) lower than expected 25 basis point rate rise on Tuesday is taking a breather ahead of Friday’s US unemployment data. Following the contract’s technical bear trap, in which it dipped below its key March to July support at 12,386 to 12,432, only to then rally by over 7% to 12,704 before slightly coming off again, led it to revisit the 12,386 July low. Between this level and the 3 October high at 12,275 the DAX 40 may find support, however. If not, a slide towards the 30 September high at 12,138 may be witnessed. Immediate resistance comes in at the 12,596 early September low above which lie the 23 June low at 12,839, followed by the mid-June low and 20 September high at 12,940 to 12,944. The next higher 26 July low, 2 September high and 55-day simple moving average (SMA) at 13,021 to 13,066 may still be reached in the days and weeks to come, provided that no drop below the September low at 11,810 ensues. Source: ProRealTime Nasdaq 100 rally stalls ahead of US Non-Farm Payroll data The Nasdaq 100’s near 7% rally from its September low has given way to some profit taking ahead of Friday’s US jobless data which should give clues as to the direction the Fed will take with regards to its monetary policy. Throughout this week various Fed officials have continued to pour cold water on the idea of a pivot, suggesting that there is little likelihood of a change in policy due to the persistence of high inflation. This has led to the Nasdaq 100 giving back some of its recent strong gains and it slipping towards the 11,306 low seen on Wednesday. A rise above this week’s 11,668 high would put the early September low at 11,918 on the cards. Source: ProRealTime
