AMC LOCK OUT = Criminal


Recommended Posts

so today i was locked out of a spread bet position +£4000 on AMC.

as if it wasnt bad enough you constanly locking the platform up every single tim the stock went up or down.

you also locked trades so i couldn't open a new possition to sure up my losses.

seccondly to this and more importantly i couldnt move my  stop loss position, so i couldn't move my stop loss to avoid beeing closed out despite having sufficent funds in my account. resulting in losing in excess of £30,000.

how is this legal. locking people out of trades and limiting there stop positions so they have no chioce other than to just lose money.

FCA need to be involved i think.

can you please explaine to me how this is even legal.

I'm not sure it is legal. There is a big class action lawsuit in the US against Robinhood about restricting any new positions

im currently waiting for IG to get back to me. seem to be very quiet ATM. not happy at all. its affecting my business and my personal life having this hangong over me. They took a lot of money from me.

    • Hi  For those interested in the Video Gaming industry we recently interviewed the product manager for VanEck Video Gaming & Esports ETF to talk about how the industry will perform as lockdown measures start to ease and what is fueling future growth https://blubrry.com/igtradingthemarkets/74972956/how-investors-can-profit-from-the-growing-video-gaming-and-esports-industry/   Are there any other exciting sectors you would like to see covered on the podcast by an industry expert?
    • Yes I am aware that I have selected the guaranteed stop level as I have been for a while in preparation for when the live account is approved, the live account will have to use a guaranteed stop on each trade, which I think is a good idea as it reduces exposure to risk and the margin required as it is a controlled risk as apposed to an uncapped or un controlled risk. Normally the stop limit on this trade is a minimum of 8 points, in this screen shot it it is set at 30 points which has increased the required margin to $1775, when it is at 8 or 10 the margin would be around $1300. If I set the stop to 139 points the margin will increase to $17,000 or more, obviously blocking the trade with a $10,000 account fund. Thank you for your suggestion,  however it isn't because I have selected a guaranteed stop as I normally do. having given this some thought, I guess if there is excessive price volatility / uncertainty, as there is when the price is at 1.39000 the system sets the GSL very high for protection, the price could easily run away, that being said if it was hit at 139 it would lead to a massive loss, maybe $7000.
